The verdict passed on the 12th May 1998 by the LG Hamburg rules that the inclusion of links also leads to co-responsibility of the material offered via these links. The LG Hamburg has declared that it is only possible to disclaim responsibility by expressly distancing oneself from the contents of the websites.
The Walter de Gruyter GmbH website links to third party information providers. Walter de Gruyter GmbH has no influence on the contents or reliability of the websites of these third party information providers. The following therefore applies to all links:
"Walter de Gruyter GmbH has no influence on the design and contents of third party internet websites. Walter de Gruyter GmbH therefore expressly distances itself from the material of all third party internet websites, even if the Walter de Gruyter GmbH website links to these external sites."
The declaration is valid for all links given on our website and the material of all sites reached via links on the Walter de Gruyter GmbH website.
