1. Content of Online Information
The provider cannot accept liability for the accuracy, completeness or
quality of the information supplied, nor for it being up-to-date.
Liability claims against the provider referring to material or ideal
damage sustained by the use or non-use of information supplied or
through the use of erroneous or incomplete information are
specifically excluded insofar as there is no evidence of any
intentional or gross negligence on the part of the provider.
All published information is subject to change and is not binding. The
provider explicitly reserves the right to amend, supplement or delete
parts or all of the information or to stop publication temporarily or
permanently and without notice.
Despite careful review of the content, the provider accepts no
liability for the content of external links. The providers of the web
pages to which the links lead, including web pages of the university
administration, central facilities, faculties, institutes etc are
solely responsible for their contents.
2. References and Links
In the case of direct or indirect references to the websites of third
parties (hyperlinks) lying outside the responsibility of the provider,
liability would ensue solely in the case where the provider has
knowledge of the content and could be reasonably expected and
technically able to prevent the use of illegal content.
The provider expressly declares that at the time of creating the links
no illegal content was to be recognised on the websites that were t
be linked. The provider has no influence over the current and future
design and content or the copyright of linked websites. The provider
thus expressly distances themselves from all content of linked
websites / pages altered after the links were created. This statement
is valid for all links and references created within our own internet
site as well as for contributions by third parties to visitor’s books,
discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the provider. The
provider of the website to which published links lead, and not the
provider who refers via links to the published information, is solely
responsible for any illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and
especially for any losses or damages arising out of the use or non-use
of that information.
3. Copyright and Trademark Law
In all publications, the provider endeavours to respect the copyright
of the graphics, audio and video clips, and texts used, to employ
graphics, audio and video clips, and texts created by the provider
themselves, or to use public-domain graphics, audio and video clips,
and texts. All trademarks and service marks specified within the
internet site including those registered by third parties are subject
without restriction to the provisions of the relevant trademark law
and the proprietary rights of the registered owner. Mention of the
name does not lead to the conclusion that trademarks are not protected
by the rights of third parties. Copyright for published items created
by the provider rests solely with the provider. Such graphics, audio
and video clips, and texts in other electronic or printed publications
may not be reproduced or used without the express permission of the
4. Data Protection
Where the internet site allows for personal or business data to be
entered (e-mail addresses, names, and postal addresses), this data is
supplied on an explicitly voluntary basis on the part or the user. As
far as it is technically possible and reasonable, all services offered
may be accessed and paid for without supplying such data or by means
of anonymized data or a pseudonym. Third parties are not permitted to
make use of contact data published in the impressum (legal notice) or
similar, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well
as e-mail addresses, to send unsolicited information. We explicitly
reserve the right to take legal steps against the senders of so-called
spam mail who have contravened this prohibition.

Leibniz Universität Hannover’s English website is a translation of the German website. In the event of discrepancies, the German text shall prevail.
