Publisher especially has the right to permit others to use individual illustrations, tables or text quotations and may use the Contributions for advertising purposes. For the purposes of use in electronic forms, Publisher may adjust the Contributions to the respective form of use and include links (e.g. frames or inline-links) or otherwise combine them with other works and/or remove links or combinations with other works provided in the Contributions. 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. Publisher may take, either in its own name or in that of Contributor, any necessary steps to protect the rights granted under this Agreement against infringement by third parties. It will have a copyright notice inserted into all editions of the Work and on the Contributions according to the provisions of the Universal Copyright Convention (UCC).
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 is also requested to store the signed permission forms and to make them available to Publisher if required.
Contributor warrants that he/she is entitled to grant the rights in accordance with the clauses above, that Contributor has not assigned such rights to third parties, that the Contributions have not heretofore been published in whole or in part, that the Contributions contain no libellous or defamatory statements and do not infringe on any copyright, trademark, patent, statutory right or proprietary right of others, including rights obtained through licences; and that Contributor will indemnify Publisher against any costs, expenses or damages for which Publisher may become liable as a result of any claim which, if true, would constitute a breach by Contributor of any of the Contributor’s representations or warranties in this Agreement. 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. This agreement shall be governed by, and shall be construed in accordance with, the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. The courts of Berlin, Germany shall have the exclusive jurisdiction.

Special Agreement for employees of the U.S. Government or of Crown Bodies in UK, Canada or Australia:
I am an employee of the U.S. Government and prepared the Contributions as part of my official duties.

The parties acknowledge that there may be no basis for claim of copyright in the United States to a Contribution prepared by an officer or employee of the United States government as part of that person’s official duties (Title 17 U.S.C. § 105). If the Contributions were performed under a United States government contract, but Contributor is not a United States government employee, Publisher grants the United States government royalty-free permission to reproduce all or part of the Contributions and to authorise others to do so for United States government purposes.
I am an employee of a Crown Body located in UK, Canada or Australia.

If the Contributions were prepared or published by or under the direction or control of the Crown (i.e., the constitutional monarch of the Commonwealth realm) or any Crown government department, the copyright in the Contributions shall, subject to any agreement with the Contributor, belong to the Crown.

II. Rights Retained by the Contributors
Contributor retains, in addition to uses permitted by law, the right to communicate the content of the Contributions to other research colleagues, to share the Contributions with them in manuscript form, to perform or present the Contributions or to use the content for non-commercial internal and educational purposes, provided the original source of publication is cited according to current citation standards.
