Links to Internet Sites of Third Parties

This Internet site includes links to external pages. These external inks open in new windows. For these external websites, Emmanuelle Charpentier will not take any responsibility, but has reviewed the respective external content in order to determine whether such link entailed possible civil or criminal responsibility. However, a constant review of linked external pages is unreasonable without concrete reason to believe that a violation of the law may be involved. If Emmanuelle Charpentier or her colleagues determine or it is pointed out by others that an external offer to which it is connected via a link entails civil or criminal responsibility, then the office of Emmanuelle Charpentier will immediately eliminate any link to this offer and expressly dissociates itself from such contents.
