Websites of third-party providers / links

This website also contains links identified as such or references to third-party websites. By offering the link, the German Design Council is merely providing access to the use of this content. Therefore, links to third-party websites are not an endorsement of the content on these sites. This does not involve approval of the content of the linked pages of the third party.

The German Design Council checked the content of the other website at the time of initial linkage, to subsequently determine whether it could potentially cause civil or criminal liability. Content incorporated thereafter cannot unfortunately be checked anymore. The German Design Council shall immediately remove the link to this website if it determines, or if it is suggested by others, that a particular website for which a link was provided could potentially cause civil or criminal liability.
