5. Registration and Use of Protected Pages


Some pages of the Hi-Tech Website are protected by way of a password. Access to these pages is only possible for registered users for transactional business security purposes. There shall be no right to be registered by Hi-Tech. In particular, Hi-Tech reserves the right to make web pages previously freely accessible subject to registration. Hi-Tech may at any time revoke a right of access by blocking the access data without providing any reasons therefor, in particular when the user:

  • Has been an inactive user of the Hi-Tech Website for a period of at least 24 months.


In the event that registration is permitted, the user shall provide accurate and correct details and must advise Hi-Tech immediately of any changes.

After each occasion of use, the area protected by password shall be exited. Insofar as the user becomes aware that any third party is misusing user data, the user shall immediately notify Hi-Tech of such in writing, and, if applicable, in advance by e-mail communication. After receipt of such notification, Hi-Tech shall block the access to the area protected by password for that user data. The lifting of any blocking is only possible after a special application by the user to Hi-Tech or after a further registration.


The user may at any time in writing demand the deletion of any registration insofar as the deletion is not prevented by the processing of current contractual matters. In such case, Hi-Tech shall erase all user data and all other personal data of the user as soon as such is no longer required.
