For the avoidance of doubt, all provisions of this contract apply regardless of whether the Contributions and/or the Work itself constitute a database under applicable copyright laws or not.
The copyright in the Contributions shall be vested in the name of Publisher. Contributor has asserted his/her right(s) to be identified as the originator of the Contributions in all editions and versions of the Work and parts thereof, published in all forms and media.

Contributor agrees, at the request of Publisher, to execute all documents and do all things reasonably required by Publisher in order to confer to Publisher all rights intended to be granted under this Agreement. Contributor warrants that the Contributions are original except for such excerpts from copyrighted works (including illustrations, tables, animations and text quotations) as may be included with the permission of the copyright holder thereof, in which case(s) Contributor is required to obtain written permission to the extent necessary and to indicate the precise sources of the excerpts in the manuscript.

Contributor agrees to amend the Contributions to remove any potential obscenity, defamation, libel, malicious falsehood or otherwise unlawful part(s) identified at any time. Any such removal or alteration shall not affect the warranty and indemnity given by Contributor in this Agreement.
Contributor agrees to keep the Contributions regularly updated. If Contributor, for whatever reason, is not willing or able to update the Contributions, they may be updated by existing or new co-authors of the respective Contributions or by members of the Editorial Board. These updates will only be offered to the public once they have been approved either by the Contributor, by one of the existing co-authors or – in case neither of them are able to approve the update - by a member of the Editorial Board in the Contributor’s scientific field of interest and/or by the Editor-in-Chief of the Work.
The Publisher is entitled to carry out editorial changes to the Contributions within the usual limits for publishing. Publisher may at any time control the information on this website and if necessary remove all or parts of it.
If any difference shall arise between Contributor and Publisher concerning the meaning of this Agreement or the rights and liabilities of the parties, the parties shall engage in good faith discussions to attempt to seek a mutually satisfactory resolution of the dispute.
