Pattern Science undertakes to refrain from performing unauthorised transfers of the user's person-specific and business data to third parties, or to make third parties aware of this data in other ways. Third-party use of contact information published in the imprint or in comparable information, such as mailing addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and also e-mail addresses, for purposes of forwarding information which has not been expressly requested is not permitted. Legal actions against the senders of so-called spam e-mails are expressly reserved in the event of a violation of this prohibition. Details regarding processing of person-specific user data by Pattern Science are regulated by the complementary applicable Pattern Science data protection declaration.
