Registration is required to use the Website.

Content and Accessibility of the Study Portal and Liability

  • The provider strives to ensure that the portal functions properly at all times. However, the provider does not guarantee uninterrupted access.
  • For providing its service, the provider uses the technologies currently and commonly used in the field. To be able to make full use of the services offered by the provider, the user must likewise use these technologies (e.g. up-to-date browser technologies, Adobe Flash) or enable their use on its computer (e.g. activate JavaScript able cookies and pop-ups). If older or not commonly used technologies are used, the user might only be able to make limited use of the services provided by the provider.
  • Claims for damage on the part of the user are excluded unless stated otherwise below. The exclusion does not extend to damage claims asserted by the user arising from death or injury to body or health or infringement of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations) as well as the liability for other loss or damage caused by a premeditated or grossly negligent contractual infringement on the part of the provider, its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Essential contractual obligations are those which must be met to achieve the goal intended by the contract. A “cardinal obligation” or “essential contractual obligations” are obligations the discharge of which enables the contract to be properly performed in the first place and the contracting party usually relies on and may rely on.
  • In the event of infringement of essential contractual obligations, the provider shall only be liable for contractually typical, foreseeable loss or damage if the infringement was due to ordinary negligence unless it is a case of damage claims asserted by the user arising from death or injury to body or health.
  • The restrictions as set forth under paragraphs 3 and 4 shall also apply to the benefit of the provider’s legal representatives and vicarious agents if claims are asserted against them directly.
