Liability for DLR's own content

As far as DLR's "own content" (information, software or documentation) is being made available free of charge on, any liability for defects as to quality or title of DLR's own content- especially in relation to the correctness or absence of defects or the absence of claims or third party rights or in relation to completeness and/or fitness for purpose - is excluded except in cases of willful misconduct or gross negligence.

Liability for third party content via setting of hyperlinks

Cross-references or rather hyperlinks ("links") to content provided by other content providers must be distinguished from DLR´s own content. By means of hyperlinking DLR provides third-party content for use which is marked accordingly by the indication "[external]" or by a link. Before setting the link DLR checks this third-party content if it causes possible civil or criminal liability. However, it cannot be excluded that the third-party content providers change their content afterwards. DLR does not constantly check the third-party content it refers to for changes made by the third-party content providers which could engender DLR´s civil or criminal liability. If you believe that the linked external sites violate applicable laws or otherwise have inappropriate content, please let us know.
