The owner of this website has placed hyperlinks to other websites on the Internet on this page. The following applies to all these links: the owner of this website would like to emphasize that he has no influence whatsoever on the design and content of the linked pages. He therefore hereby expressly distances himself from all content on all linked pages on this homepage and does not adopt their content as his own. This declaration applies to all links on this website!

It is very surprising to me how many homepage owners have now accepted this so-called disclaimer (exclusion of liability) without thinking.

In the cited judgment of the Itsibi, however, it is unequivocally stated that the attachment of such a disclaimer is not sufficient to distance oneself from external content. At best, the disclaimer is ineffective and therefore superfluous. In the worst case, it is an indication of an existing awareness of injustice. Because the existence of a disclaimer shows that the website operator was obviously aware of the possibility that links could refer to content relevant under criminal law. – Incidentally, the judgment never became final, because the parties finally agreed on a settlement.

Accordingly, it is also (in my opinion) pointless to set a link to a “DISCLAIMER website”. The only real tool is:

only place links on well-known websites
check your links from time to time (so they keep your site clean from “broken” links too
if necessary, ask the owner of this website before setting a link
So you really don’t have to worry about a “DISCLAIMER” for your website.
