Declaration of exemption

The information has been compiled to the best of our knowledge. However, errors cannot be ruled out with absolute certainty. Only the provisions in the pertinent legal bases (such as laws, ordinances or statues) are legally binding.

We cannot assume any liability for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness and availability of the information provided at any time.

We are not liable for any damage caused by the use of this website. This exclusion of liability does not apply insofar as the provisions of § 839 BGB (liability in case of breach of official duties) are relevant. We are not liable for any damage caused by malicious software or the installation or use of software when accessing or downloading data.

The disclaimer does not apply to information falling within the scope of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (General Data Protection Regulation). Correctness and up-to-dateness are guaranteed for this information.


This website contains cross-references (“links”) to other websites of LMU or to other external third-party online resources. The linked internet pages will regularly automatically open in a new window.

By means of the cross-reference, LMU provides access to this external content (§ 8 Telemedia Law). LMU is not responsible for the displayed external content since it does not cause the transmission of the information, does not select the addressee of the transmitted information and has not selected or altered the information transmitted.

Nor does an automatic short-term cache of this external information take place because of the chosen call-up and linking methodology by LMU, and no responsibility of LMU ensues from this external content.

However, when linking to these internet services for the first time, LMU has checked the external content to determine whether it triggers a possible civil or criminal responsibility. We do not receive automatic information about changes to third-party internet offers and cannot permanently check if changes have taken place. This is why we cannot take responsibility for them either. The respective providers of the third-party internet offers are exclusively liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of information from third parties. Nevertheless, we make every effort to check the referenced links regularly in relation to the above criteria.
