Especially excluded is liability for hardware damage, loss of data, alteration of data, or downtime.

Security of data transfers

Please note that data that is transferred via an open network, such as the internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. RIMAS cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. A third party may therefore be able to trace an existing relationship or one that is subsequently created. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country, data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.

For certain services, we use strong encryption to transfer your data. In these cases you will be told separately about the treatment of this data and about the details of encryption.

Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorised parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your data during its transfer via the internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.

Marketing of other RIMAS services

If you give us permission, we may use your personal information to make you aware of additional RIMAS services that may be of interest to you. We may also ask you for additional information, to be provided at your discretion, in an effort to provide best-in-class service. RIMAS provides you with the opportunity to opt into these types of communications. If you choose to receive these types of communications at the time of registration, but later decide you no longer want to receive them, simply write to us at the appropriate address specified below.

Tracking individual usage

In certain circumstances, your usage of RIMAS services and the information that you have retrieved may be reported to your employer or the subscriber who pays for you to access the service. You were notified of this at registration and/or before your first use of the service. In such cases, this personal usage data will only be transferred to the subscribing party that pays for your access to this service. This is done to provide the subscriber with information as to how the service is being used within its organisation and for its internal billing purposes.


RIMAS provides, within some services, various opportunities for you to submit feedback. Any feedback that is submitted becomes the property of RIMAS. We may use this feedback, such as success stories, for marketing purposes, or to contact you for further information.
