Links to other internet sites

RISM is liable for its "own content" offered for use according to the general legal provisions in Germany (Art. 7 TMG [German Telemedia Act]). The links to content offered by other operators must be distinguished from RISM’s own content.
By these links RISM provides access to "foreign content" (Art. 8 TMG). RISM is not liable for such "foreign" content, since it does not request the transmission of such information, does not select the recipient of the information transmitted, and has not selected or amended the transmitted information. Due to the chosen requesting and linking method this "foreign information" is not automatically intermediately stored for a short period, so that no responsibility of RISM for these foreign contents may be deduced therefrom either. Upon the initial establishment of the link RISM verified the foreign content in regard of whether any liability could be incurred thereby, regarding both the civil law and the penal law. However, upon finding or receiving information from third parties that any civil law or criminal law liability is incurred through a concrete offer to which RISM provides a link, such link shall be removed on condition that such removal is technically feasible and reasonable.
