The contents of this website have been prepared with the utmost care. We do not guarantee that the content is up-to-date, correct, complete or available at all times, nor do we accept any liability for damage that may be caused by computer viruses or similar harmful programs when calling up or loading data or software, unless we have acted with intent or gross negligence. Any medical texts, illustrations or graphics contained in this website are for general information purposes only, but are no substitute for medical or other expert advice.

Within the scope of §§ 8 to 10 TMG (German Telemedia Act), we are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. If we become aware of such content, we will remove it immediately.

Insofar as our website contains links to third-party websites, we point out that we have no influence on their content. We do not assume any liability for this third-party content, as the responsibility and accessibility for the content of the linked websites lies with the respective provider or operator. Illegal contents were not recognizable after examination at the time of linking. A permanent control of the contents of the linked websites is not reasonable without concrete evidence of violations of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, the relevant link will be removed immediately.

The contents and works of this website, in particular texts, images and graphics, are subject to German copyright law. Unauthorized copying, editing, distribution or other use is not permitted and will be prosecuted. Contributions by third parties are marked as such.

Insofar as personal data is collected on our website, this is done on a voluntary basis. Contacting us via this website does not constitute a legal transaction. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties is not possible.

We object to the sending of unsolicited advertising and similar information material and reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited mailing, for example by spam e-mails.



On the pages of Heidelberg University Hospital, you will find numerous links (=cross-references), also via banners, to third-party pages outside the hospital. These are marked as such. When activating these links, a new window is opened and the user is redirected to the offer of the third-party provider.

In the case of direct or indirect links to third-party websites that lie outside the area of responsibility of the Heidelberg University Hospital, liability would only come into effect if the Heidelberg University Hospital had knowledge of the content and it would have been technically possible and reasonable for it to prevent use in the case of illegal content. The University Hospital therefore expressly declares that at the time the links were created, the corresponding linked pages were free of illegal content. It has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked pages of these third-party providers. Therefore, it expressly distances itself from all content of all linked pages that were changed after the link was set.




The Internet portal of Heidelberg University Hospital provides its patients and other interested parties with a wide range of high-quality information.
Heidelberg University Hospital accepts no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the UKL-HD relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded, unless the UKL-HD can be proven to have acted with intent or gross negligence.
All offers are non-binding and subject to change. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the UKL-HD without separate announcement.


The UKL-HD is not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from his pages - unless he has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site fromviewing those pages. If any damage occurs by the use of information presented there, only the UKL-HD of the respective pages might be liable, not the one who has linked to these pages.
The UKL-HD explicitly declares that at the time of linking to these pages no illegal contents were visible. The UKL-HD has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, it hereby expressly dissociates itself from all contents of all linked pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within its own Internet offer as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases set up by the UKL-HD to which external write access is possible. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of such information lies solely with the provider of the site to which reference is made, and not with the party who merely refers to the publication in question via links.


The UKL-HD endeavors to observe the copyrights of the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by the UKL-HD itself or to use license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.
All trademarks and brand names mentioned on the website and, where applicable, 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 a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties!
The copyright for any material created by the UKL-HD is reserved. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the UKL-HD's agreement.


This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication which you were referred from. If sections or individual terms of this statement are not legal or correct, the content or validity of the other parts remain uninfluenced by this fact.
