Unless otherwise stated, all pages of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg website are subject to copyright. This applies in particular to texts, images, graphics, style, sound, video or animation files, including their arrangement on the web pages.

The design and applications of this website have been taken, with appropriate modifications, from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg’s template catalog. For rights, terms of use and further information, please refer to the project website.

Reproduction or use of web pages (or parts thereof) in other electronic or printed publications and their publication (also on the Internet) is only permitted with prior consent.

The reprinting and evaluation of press releases, publications, scripts and lecture information is permitted with reference to the source.
Furthermore, images, graphics, text or other files may be subject in whole or in part to the copyright of third parties.

All brands and trademarks mentioned on the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of trademarks on our website does not imply that they are not protected by third-party rights.


The operator has compiled and checked all information provided in its area to the best of its knowledge and belief. However, no responsibility is taken for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality and availability at any time of the information provided.

No liability is accepted for any damage caused by computer viruses or the installation or use of software when calling up or downloading data.

Internet pages identified by name reflect the opinions and findings of the author(s).

The operator expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete individual web pages, web services or the entire offer without prior notice or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently.


The operator is only responsible for its “own content”, which it makes available for use, in accordance with the relevant laws. Cross-references (“links”) to the websites of other providers are to be distinguished from this own content.  By means of the cross-reference, the operator merely provides access to the use of this content; the operator is not responsible for this “third-party” content, as the operator does not initiate the transmission of the information, does not select the addressee of the transmitted information and has not selected or changed the transmitted information. Also an automatic short-term intermediate storage of these “foreign information” does not take place because of the selected call and linking method, so that also thereby no responsibility of the operator for these foreign contents results.

However, when first linking to these Internet offers, the authors of the respective websites or the editorial staff of the operator have checked the external content to see whether it triggers any possible civil or criminal liability. As soon as the operator determines or is informed by others that a concrete offer, to which he has provided a link, triggers a civil or criminal responsibility, he will immediately remove the reference to this offer, insofar as it is technically possible and reasonable.

For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damages resulting from the use or non-use of information provided by third parties, the respective provider of the linked page is solely liable.


All data requested by the operator in various forms are used for purely official technical purposes. Personal information is not passed on to third parties.


The RRZE web server is maintained by the RRZE web team. Whenever a web page or a linked object is requested, the following access data is stored:

  • the address (URL) of the web page from which the file was requested
  • the name of the requested file
  • the date and time of the request
  • the amount of data transferred
  • the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • the description of the type of web browser or operating system used
  • the IP address of the requesting computer.

The stored data is used exclusively for technical or statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data or passed on to third parties, even in excerpts.

After evaluation of the accesses, the logged data is deleted. The evaluation takes place daily, the deletion of the accesses takes place after 15 days.
