Note on all links on these Internet pages
In its decision of May 12, 1998 (Az 312 O 85/98), the Regional Court of Hamburg ruled that the authors of Internet pages may be jointly responsible for the content of the linked pages by including a programmed link. According to the Regional Court of Hamburg, this can only be avoided if the authors expressly distance themselves from the content that can possibly be accessed through the links. The Hessian Ministry of Science and Art has links to other sites on the Internet on various pages of this homepage.

The Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences therefore expressly distances itself from all linked page content. It also points out that it not only has no influence whatsoever on the design and content of the linked pages of other providers, but may not even be aware of any content that may have been subsequently included. Please inform the university immediately if you have reached pages via our links whose contents appear questionable to you. This declaration applies to all links included on these pages.
