External providers:

As a municipal portal, also gives various eternal providers the opportunity to present themselves on the Look & Feel page of The operators of these external websites are designated at the top of the monitor screen. The providers themselves are responsible for the contents of these pages.


The layout of the pages at, the graphics and images used and the collection and individual contributions are protected by copyright. All rights are reserved to the City of Düsseldorf, including rights to photomechanical copying, reproduction and dissemination by special means (for example data processing, data carriers and data networks), including sections. The City of Düsseldorf accepts no responsibility for any possible typographical errors and for the correctness of the contents.

Internet conditions:

The internet works as a decentralised network cluster through the caching and transfer of temporary data. No guarantee can therefore be given at present that there will be no tampering or accidental falsification, and no guarantee that only updated data will be used (e.g. old version still in cache), along the channels connecting the provider with the user. These are system-based restrictions, and they compel us to make it clear that you receive these data on internet conditions. We can therefore take no responsibility for the correctness of the contents and their identity with the original data.

Liability for contents:

The contents of our website were prepared with great care. We can however accept no responsibility for the correctness, completeness and up-to-date status of the contents. As service providers we are responsible under the German tele-media act for our own contents on the pages of the website. We are however not obliged to monitor transferred or stored outside information or to search for circumstances which suggest the presence of unlawful acts. This is without prejudice to obligations to remove or block the use of information under the provisions of statute law. Liability in this respect is however only possible as from the time we become aware of a specific violation of the law. In that event we will remove the contents in question immediately.

Liability for links:

Our website contains links to external websites of third parties, on the contents of which we have no influence. We can therefore accept no responsibility for such external contents. It is in every case the provider or operator of the linked websites that is responsible for their contents. The linked websites were checked, at the time of linkage, for possible violations of law. Unlawful contents were not apparent at that time. A continuous check on the contents of the linked websites cannot however be reasonably expected when there are no concrete indications of an offence. When we become aware of such, links of that kind are removed at once.
