Comments and Contributions: Should users leave comments on the blog or share other information their IP address will be stored. This is to protect the vendor from unlawful comments or contributions (abuse, illegal political propaganda etc.). In that case the vendor might become liable for those comments or contributions himself and would therefore be interested in the identity of the author.

If you want to receive our newsletter we will ask you for your valid e-mail address plus information which will allow us to verify that you are indeed the owner of that e-mail address.
