Exclusion of liability / disclaimer for third-party sites

The present contents of the ZI website provide information free of charge. Insofar as it relates to medical topics, it does not constitute advice for the individual user or specialised medical information and cannot replace the advice of a doctor, psychologist or pharmacist.

The information contained herein has been compiled to the best of our knowledge. However, no guarantee can be given that the information is complete, correct and up-to-date. The information is therefore not legally binding. The ZI can therefore not be held liable for any damages arising in connection with the use of this content.

Note on medical content

The content of the website and any conclusions derived from it are no substitute for a specialist diagnosis or an assessment by a treating doctor, psychologist or psychotherapist. In particular, they do not constitute counselling for the individual user.

The content of this website and the information it contains on the disease cannot claim to be complete. The operator of the website cannot bring about or prescribe a treatment decision. Individual symptoms / courses of the disease may not be included in the presentation of the site.

Note on all links that can be found on the website

On the pages of you will find numerous links (= cross-references) to third-party websites. These are labelled as such. When these links are activated, a new window opens and the user is redirected to the offer of the third-party provider.

In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites that lie outside the area of responsibility of the ZI, a liability obligation would only come into force if the ZI had knowledge of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable for it to prevent use in the case of illegal content. The ZI therefore expressly declares that the linked pages were free of illegal content at the time the links were created. It has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked pages of these third-party providers. It therefore expressly distances itself from all contents of all linked pages that were changed after the link was created.
