The Max Planck So­ci­ety is a non-profit re­search fa­cil­ity that is or­gan­ized as a re­gistered as­so­ci­ation. All of the in­sti­tu­tes and fa­cil­it­ies of the Max Planck So­ci­ety are largely autonom­ous in terms of or­gan­iz­a­tion and re­search, but as a rule have no leg­al ca­pa­city of their own.

Li­ab­il­ity for Con­tents of On­line In­form­a­tion

In ac­cord­ance with Sec­tion 7 Para­graph 1 of the Tele-Me­dia Law, the Max Planck So­ci­ety shall be re­spons­ible for its own con­tents ac­cord­ing to gen­er­al leg­al pro­vi­sions. The Max Planck So­ci­ety makes every ef­fort to provide timely and ac­cur­ate in­form­a­tion on this Web site. Nev­er­the­less, er­rors and in­ac­curacies can­not be com­pletely ruled out. There­fore, the Max Planck So­ci­ety does not as­sume any li­ab­il­ity for the in­form­a­tion provided be­ing up-to-date as well as its ac­cur­acy, com­plete­ness, or qual­ity. The Max Planck So­ci­ety shall not be li­able for dam­age of a tan­gible or in­tan­gible nature caused dir­ec­tly or in­dir­ec­tly through the use or fail­ure to use the in­form­a­tion offered and/or through the use of faulty or in­com­plete in­form­a­tion un­less it is veri­fi­ably culp­able of in­tent or gross neg­li­gence. The same shall ap­ply to any soft­ware down­loads avail­able free of charge. The Max Planck So­ci­ety re­serves the right to modi­fy, sup­ple­ment, or de­lete any or all of the in­form­a­tion offered on its Web site or to tem­por­ar­ily or per­man­ently cease pub­lic­a­tion there­of without pri­or and sep­ar­ate no­ti­fic­a­tion.

Links to Web Sites of Third Parties

This Web site in­cludes links to oth­er ex­tern­al Web sites. These ex­tern­al links are marked with an Icon ().  The re­spect­ive pro­vider shall be re­spons­ible for the con­tents of any linked ex­tern­al pages. In es­tab­lish­ing the ini­tial link, the Max Planck So­ci­ety has re­viewed the re­spect­ive ex­tern­al con­tent in or­der to de­term­ine wheth­er such link en­tailed pos­sible civil or crim­in­al re­spons­ib­il­ity. However, a con­stant re­view of linked ex­tern­al pages is un­reas­on­able without con­crete in­dic­a­tion of a vi­ol­a­tion of rights. If the Max Planck So­ci­ety dis­cov­ers or is poin­ted out by oth­ers that an ex­tern­al of­fer linked to by the Max Planck So­ci­ety causes civil or crim­in­al re­spons­ib­il­ity, the Max Planck So­ci­ety will im­me­di­ately elim­in­ate any link to this of­fer. The Max Planck So­ci­ety ex­pressly dis­so­ci­ates it­self from such con­tents.
