In its judgement of 12 May 1998, the Regional Court of Hamburg ruled that the inclusion of a link may entail co-responsibility for the content of the linked page.

According to the Regional Court, this can only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from these contents. This site may contain links to other sites on the Internet.

The following applies to all these links:
We expressly emphasize that we have no influence whatsoever on the design and content of the linked pages and therefore hereby expressly dissociate ourselves from all contents of all linked pages. This declaration applies to all links on this website today and in the future and to all contents of the pages.
