Clio-online has no influence on services that collaborative partners are responsible for independently in terms of organization and technology and accepts no liability for them. Restrictions on deletion rights apply in particular to foreign, non-European collaborative partners (e.g., logfile archive of H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences online in the USA, through which a large part of Clio-online's publications can be viewed unchanged and permanently on the Internet). Clio-online forwards requests for deletion, information, and correction to collaborative partners. In this respect, express reference is made to § 9.
