References and links

Responsibility for "external content", which is provided, for example, through direct or indirect links to other providers, presupposes, among other things, positive and up-to-date knowledge of the content. The Verein für Socialpolitik has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages and does not adopt these contents as its own. Therefore, the Verein für Socialpolitik hereby expressly distances itself from all contents of all linked pages that were changed after the link was created. This statement applies to all links and references set within the own Internet offer as well as to external entries in areas set up for this purpose by the Verein für Socialpolitik.

Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of such information lies solely with the provider of the site to which reference is made, and not with the party who merely refers to the publication in question via links. The Verein für Socialpolitik has no positive knowledge of illegal or offensive content on the linked pages of third party providers. Should the linked pages of external providers nevertheless contain illegal or offensive content, the Verein für Socialpolitik expressly distances itself from this content.

The Verein für Socialpolitik is not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from his pages - unless he has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site fromviewing those pages.
