Max-Planck-Gesellschaft endeavours to ensure the correctness and topicality of the information presented in this internet presence. Errors and inaccuracies can nevertheless not be completely excluded. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft therefore provides no guarantee for the topicality, correctness, completeness and quality of the information presented. For damage of a material or immaterial nature arising directly or indirectly from use or non-use of the information presented or from use of incorrect or incomplete information Max-Planck-Gesellschaft accepts no liability, insofar as it cannot be charged with incontestably deliberate or grossly negligent blame.

Links to external pages
This internet presence contains links to external pages. These external links are denoted as follows: by the symbol or explicit designation as an external link. Links to internal pages of this internet presence are highlighted in blue colour.
The respective presenters of linked external pages are always responsible for their own contents. When presenting a link for the first time Max-Planck-Gesellschaft examines the external content to check whether it will incur possible action under civil or criminal law. Permanent checking of the contents of linked external pages without concrete evidence of legal contraventions is, however, unreasonable.

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft expressly dissociates itself from such contents.
