2.1 Via the Platform the Provider offers the possibility to store, evaluate and analyse the vehicle data provided by the User.

2.3 The User submits the offer to use the Platform exclusively in the online ordering process (registration). The User is obliged to provide the information requested by the Provider in the registration process completely and correctly. Incomplete or false information entitles the Provider to refuse or withdraw the right to use the platform..

The User will act accordingly and obligate the Users accordingly.
