Articles with named authors do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editors. No guarantee is given for unsolicited manuscripts of all kinds. The editors reserve the right to make cuts to copy received.    

Liability for Content
The ifa (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations) is responsible according to § 7, 1 TMG for its own contents on these pages according to the general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, ifa is not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general law remain unaffected. A liability in this regard, however, is only possible from the date of knowledge of a specific infringement. Upon notification of a violation, ifa will remove this content immediately. Articles or posts with a named author do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editors.          

Liability for Links
Despite careful content control, ifa assumes no liability for the content of external links. The content of the linked pages are the sole responsibility of those who operate them. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not evident at the time it was linked. However, a permanent content control of linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement. Upon notification of violations, ifa will remove such links immediately.
