Legal notice and disclaimer

of Evangelische Mission Weltweit (EMW) e.V., hereinafter referred to as the website operator.

Please note the important legal information regarding the content and availability of this website, copyright and external links.

Content of this website

The contents of this website are created with the greatest possible care. However, the website operator does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content provided.

Website availability

The website operator will make every effort to offer the service for retrieval without interruption. However, even with all due care, downtimes cannot be ruled out. He reserves the right to change or discontinue his offer at any time. We cannot accept any liability for interruptions or other disruptions caused by files that have not been created without errors or formats that have not been structured without errors.


All contents and structures of this website are protected by copyright and ancillary copyright. Publication on the World Wide Web or other services of the internet does not imply any declaration of consent for any other use by third parties. Any use not permitted by German copyright law requires the prior written consent of the website operator.

We expressly permit and welcome the citation of our publications as well as the setting of links to our website, as long as it is made clear that these are contents of the website operator and that these contents are not brought into connection with contents of third parties which contradict the interests of the website operator.

Note on the problem of external links

As a content provider, the website operator is responsible for his “own content”, which he makes available for use, in accordance with general legislation pursuant to Section 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz). These own contents are to be distinguished from cross-references (“links”) to contents provided by other providers. Through the cross-reference, the website operator provides “third-party content” for use, which is characterized by the fact that it is opened in a new browser window or in a new tab of the browser.

Links are always “living” (dynamic) references. The website operator has checked the external content at the time of the initial linking as to whether it could give rise to a possible civil or criminal liability. However, he does not constantly check the content to which he refers in his offer for changes that could give rise to a new responsibility. If he determines or is informed by others that a specific offer to which he has provided a link triggers civil or criminal liability, he will remove the reference to this offer.
