By order of the competent authorities, in individual cases we are permitted to provide information about these data (inventory data), insofar as this is required for the purpose of prosecution, averting danger, enforcing intellectual property rights, or fulfilling legal responsibilities of the constitution protection authorities or the military intelligence service.
