Data Protection

The use of our website is usually possible without the need to provide personal data.  Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address, email address) are collected by us, this is done as far as possible by mutual agreement.  This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) may be vulnerable to security breaches.  Complete protection of data from interception by third parties is not possible.

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of the contact data published as part of our duty to publish this imprint for the purpose of sending us any advertising or information materials that we have not expressly requested.  The operator of this site expressly reserves the right to take legal action if unsolicited advertisements – for example in the form of spam mail – are sent.


Liability for Content
As a service provider we are responsible under § 7 para. 1 of the TMG (German Telemedia Act) and in accordance with the general law for our own content on these webpages.  In accordance with §§8 to 10 of the TMG however we are not responsible as a service provider to monitor transferred or stored third party information or to research circumstances that suggest illegal activity.  Obligations for the removal or barring of the use of information in accordance with legal regulations remain unaffected.  Any liability in this respect is however only incurred from the moment of actual notice of a specific infringement.  Should we be made aware of any such infringement, we shall immediately remove the relevant content.  

Liability for Links
Our webpages include third party links over whose contents we have no influence.  We cannot therefore be liable for the content of third party links.  The relevant service provider or operator of third party websites shall always be deemed responsible for their content.  These links were checked for possible legal infringements at the time they were added to our own website; and at that time, no illegal content was detected.  Without any concrete evidence of a legal infringement it is not possible or reasonable to expect the Schöpflin Foundation and its agents to carry out permanent, ongoing monitoring of the linked sites.  Should we be made aware of any related infringement, we shall immediately remove the relevant links.  

The contents and works as prepared by the website operator shall be subject to German copyright law.  The reproduction, processing, distribution and any form of commercialisation thereof beyond the scope of the copyright shall require written authorisation from the respective author or creator of the material.  This content may only be downloaded or copied for personal use; it may not be used for commercial purposes.  Insofar as the content on these pages was not created by the site operator, third-party copyrights shall be respected.  Third-party content has been identified as such.  Should you still have reason to believe that a copyright infringement has occurred, please notify us accordingly.  Should we be made aware of any legal infringement, we shall immediately remove the relevant content.
