ePages takes the issue of confidentiality very seriously. We view the protection and respect of the privacy of our customers as an important, critical and integral part of our business. We have constructed our website in such a way that customers and channel partners can enter confidential information that is relevant and useful toward obtaining specific product data. We do utilize this information for the design of our products and services, as well as to carry out the specific services we have been asked to perform. We take it upon ourselves to ensure that the data that we receive from customers is collected, processed and used for its intended purpose. The fact that ePages operates on a worldwide basis sometimes requires us to transfer such information to our subsidiaries and affiliated companies both domestically and abroad, albeit in a professional and controlled fashion.
Within the framework of paragraph 33 BDSG (The Federal Data Protection Act) we are required to inform our customers that data we receive from them is, or may indeed be stored, processed and transferred. We do this in accordance with the applicable data secrecy laws. In addition, our customers do hereby tacitly agree that the data that they give us via questionnaires may be used and stored, assuming the aforementioned diligence on our part. When doing business with distributors (domestic or international) who are part and parcel of the implementation of our products and services in question, we reserve the right to share critical information with them, including proprietary information.
In the sense of the Press Act of October 3, 1949 (Gesetz über die Presse vom 3. Oktober 1949), the parties responsible for various types of documents and information are as follows: When texts and pictures contain different sources: each source is liable for its own content.

This applies to any form of information, including texts, diagrams and pictures.
