AGB - § 7 Contributions

(1) Registered users can publish contributions (including articles, reports, essays, reviews, advertisements, and sources) for the services of Clio-online.

(2) Clio-online and its editors are free to reject offered or submitted contributions without giving reasons.

(3) The publication of an author's contribution takes place via activation by an editorial staff member of Clio-online. The publication of the author's email address will only take place in contributions which are themselves delivered as emails via subscriptions. The publication of the email address can be discontinued at any time. We expressly refer to the data protection information of Clio-online. This can be found at the following link: An author’s contact data is published only with his or her consent. This is given by registering as a user and setting a corresponding option in the MY CLIO - profile under CONTACT. Reference is expressly made to § 5 Abs. 3 S. 2–4.

(4) For contributions submitted for publication or received via web forms without the request or involvement of a Clio-online editorial team member (e.g., job advertisements, announcements, calls for papers, notifications of changes), the author grants Clio-online a right of use for all current and future services in accordance with § 8 para. 2 upon provision of the contribution.

(5) Contributions or works can also be created and published by the Clio-online editorial offices without the cooperation of the authors (for example, in the course of a retro-digitization of earlier print publications). This shall be done exclusively with the consent of the authors or copyright holders and by stipulating the rights of use transferred to Clio-online with the publication in accordance with § 8 (3) or in the public interest.

(6) As a rule, contributions to the services of Clio-online are published permanently, irreversibly, and, if possible, with permanent addresses in the public interest of documenting scientific work and ensuring long-term traceability. For this reason, a later change or deletion of contributions once published is normally denied, unless legal requirements expressly contradict this.
