The client is not entitled to rent or sell the address and contact databases of the contractor to third parties. A transfer to affiliated companies or service providers is only permissible if they act as vicarious agents of the client and their possible use in a suitable form is limited spatially and temporally to the corresponding project. For the purpose of use, the client is provided with a secure working environment that can be accessed via the Internet, which can be accessed by entering a login / password combination or via an interface using authorized retrievals. In this work environment, the contractor operates the software and search technology that performs queries according to the client's specifications and configurations individually or regularly, selects and filters the results according to defined criteria, and displays or retrieves the hits in an appropriate form. The scope of the underlying source database, as well as the selection of the connected interfaces, platforms and databases (collectively "sources"), are at the discretion of the contractor.

The client can request the current status, suggest sources for supplementation or request their processing status.
