Links to Internet Sites of Third Parties/Disclaimer This Internet site includes links to external pages. These external links are indicated by an arrow. 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 reason to believe that a violation of the law may be involved.

The Max Planck Society expressly dissociates itself from such contents.
