This website offers information about the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK) within Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum (German Cancer Research Center; DKFZ). Our goal is to keep this information up to date and accurate. If errors are brought to our attention, we will try to correct them.
However, DKFZ accepts no responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to the material on this site. This material is:

  • Information of a general nature only, not intended to address the specific circumstances of any particular individual or entity
  • Not necessarily comprehensive, complete, accurate or up to date
  • Not professional or medical advice (if you need specific advice, you should always consult a suitably qualified professional).

Some webpages are linked to external sites over which DKFZ has no control. Links have been proved during setup. Since information on the WWW is subject of current change DKFZ accepts no responsibility with regard to such problems, or the consequences thereof, incurred as a result of using this site or any linked external sites.

Data Protection Provisions

The DKFZ is committed to protecting the privacy of all persons using its website and to treat any personal information provided in strictest confidence. The data is used exclusively for the purposes indicated and not disclosed to third parties. Your data will be deleted as soon as it has served the purpose indicated. Without your knowledge, your web browser or client software may transfer information about your computer (for example IP address) to our server. Such information is never brought directly in touch with you, but is evaluated in anonymous form for statistical purposes, for system management or to improve performance of our internet service.

To ensure the tailored design and optimum performance of this website, solutions and technologies by web statistics applications not only collect and store anonymized data, but also utilize this data to compile usage profiles by means of pseudonyms. Cookies can be used for these purposes which make it possible for an Internet browser to be recognized. Without the express consent of a visitor, however, usage profiles will not be merged with data pertaining to the pseudonymous visitor. IP addresses, in particular, are obliterated immediately after receipt, which makes it impossible to match a usage profile with an IP address. Visitors to this website can opt out here—at any time—of the collecting and storing of their data.”
