Third Parties

In the case of direct or indirect references to external internet pages which are outside the area of responsibility of the KFO 227, liability will exclusively come into effect in the case of the KFO 227 having knowledge of its content and were it to be technically possible and acceptable for it to prevent the use in the case of illegal content. The KFO 227 therefore states explicitly that, at the time of the link being put in place, there was no recognizable illegal content on the pages. It has absolutely no influence over the current and future form and over the content of the linked/connected pages of these third parties. It therefore explicitly distances itself from the content of all linked/connected pages which are changed following the link being put in place.
