We require these parties to agree to processing such data in accordance with our instructions and this privacy policy as well as other confidentiality and security measures desired.

We request Users to identify themselves and the requested data that should be made accessible, amended or removed before such requests will be processed and we may refuse to process such requests for reasons of our own, a.o. if such requests are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require excessive technical efforts, endanger the privacy of third parties, or are virtually impracticable (e.g. requests relating to data stored on backup tapes) or for which access is usually not required. In all cases where we enable access and amendment of data, we will render this service free of charge or at a market rate, at our discretion.
