Regarding Images Displayed on the Website

We have received the written consent of individuals depicted on this website. However, if we have infringed on the right of personal portrayal and you take issue with the depiction, please contact us via e-mail or telephone. We will then immediately remove the image.


The design of the website and the content contributions are protected by copyright. This applies in particular to texts, images, graphics, sound, video or animation files including their arrangement on the web pages. No changes may be made to these. Information offered for download (brochures, forms, leaflets, etc.) may be saved and printed out for personal use. Reprints and the evaluation of press releases, for example, are permitted provided the source is acknowledged. Otherwise, publication (including on the Internet), processing or commercial use of all contents (or parts thereof) is only permitted with the prior consent of the German Design Council Foundation.


The information contained on this website was carefully compiled and reviewed according to the best of our knowledge and belief. The German Design Council shall be excluded from any liability for damages resulting from the use or misuse of information provided on this website, insofar as this is legally permissible. Furthermore, we shall be liable only within the scope of statutory provisions for any damages caused by the accessing or downloading of data, by computer viruses or by installing or using software.

Websites of Third-Party Providers/Links

This website also contains appropriately marked links or references to third-party websites. Through the link, the Stiftung Rat für Formgebung merely provides access to the use of this content. This does not imply any approval of the content of the linked third-party sites. No responsibility is therefore accepted for the availability or content of such websites and no liability is accepted for damage or injury resulting from the use – of whatever form – of such content. The provider of the respective site is solely liable for this. When linking to another website for the first time, the German Design Council Foundation checked the content of that website to see whether it might give rise to any liability under civil or criminal law. However, it is unfortunately not possible to check content subsequently included there. As soon as the German Design Council Foundation ascertains or is informed by others that a certain offer to which a link has been provided triggers civil or criminal liability, the reference to this offer will be removed immediately.
