The IP-address is the worldwide valid, unique identification of your computer that consists of four number blocks separated by dots. Mostly, as a private user, you will not use a constant IP-address because it is only temporarily assigned to you by your provider. Nonetheless, by static IP-addresses a definite assignment of user data is principally still possible. Except for the purpose of the prosecution of illegal access to our web services we generally do not use this personal data.

    If you would like to purchase or sell antibodies or related products via the antibodies-online web sites, we will transmit your personal data to the respective contractual partner (buyer or seller) for the purpose of processing the contract. We maintain the right to transmit your personal data to companies connected to antibodies-online which are controlled by antibodies-online GmbH. These companies are either subject to this privacy policy or ensure a privacy policy which is at least as effective. If you sell products via partner companies which are not controlled by antibodies-online, in individual cases it can be necessary that we also transmit your personal data to these companies for the purpose of selling your products.

    Additionally it might occur that we assign other companies or individual people with the completion of particular tasks and services. For example we assign service providers with the analysis and usage of our Internet services and the transaction of payments (credit card, direct debit and purchase on account).

These service providers are obliged to treat you data according to this privacy policy and the relevant data protection statutes.
