Legal Structure

EIPIN is a non-profit research network. It is autonomous in terms of organization and research, but as a rule has no legal capacity of its own.

Liability for Contents of Online Information

As the provider of contents in accordance with Section 7 Paragraph 1 of the Tele-Media Law, EIPIN shall be responsible for any contents which it makes available for use in accordance with general legal provisions. EIPIN makes every effort to provide timely and accurate information on this Website. Nevertheless, errors and inaccuracies cannot be completely ruled out. Therefore, EIPIN does not assume any liability for the relevance, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. EIPIN 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 downloadable software available free of charge. EIPIN reserves the right to modify, supplement, or delete any or all of the information offered on its Internet site, or to temporarily or permanently cease publication thereof without prior and separate notification.

Links to Internet Sites of Third Parties

This Internet site includes links to external pages. The respective provider shall be responsible for the contents of any linked external pages. In establishing the initial link, EIPIN 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. If EIPIN determines such or it is pointed out by others that an external offer to which it is connected via a link entails civil or criminal responsibility, EIPIN will immediately eliminate any link to this offer. EIPIN expressly dissociates itself from such contents.
