Internet conditions

As a decentralised network, the Internet operates with the interim storage and transmission of temporary data.

Links and references (Disclaimer)

By judgment of 12 May 1998, the Regional Court of Hamburg held that anyone adding a link may also share liability for the content of the linked page. According to the Regional Court of Hamburg, this can only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from such content. The website includes links or references to other internet providers.

In particular:

We would like to emphasise that we have no influence whatsoever concerning the content or design of the linked/referenced sites. Hence, we hereby distance ourselves expressly from all content on the linked websites. We do not adopt the content of those pages as our own. This declaration applies for all links and references set in our pages and for the content of all websites to which such links refer. Illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular damage resulting from the use or non-use of third-party information are the sole responsibility of the respective provider of the page to which any of these links refer and not the party that merely refers to publications by means of links. Criminal and civil responsibility remains with the individual provider.
When the link/reference to websites of other providers is initially made, the editorial staff of the Oberhausmuseum/Town of Passau examines the external content to determine whether this may result in any potential infringement of civil or criminal law. The Town of Passau expressly declares that the corresponding linked websites/websites referred to were free of illegal content at the time the link was set. The Town of Passau has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked websites/websites referred to. Therefore, it hereby distances itself expressly from all content of all websites linked/referred to that were changed after the link was set. 

Legal effectiveness of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be viewed as part of the Town of Passau's website. If parts or single formulations of this text no longer or no longer fully comply with current law, all other sections of the document remain unaffected with regard to their content and validity.
