In the course of using our Internet presence, you may be asked to provide personal information. You are free to accept or decline this request. Any personal data you provide will be stored and processed in accordance with German privacy protection regulation.
Any personally identifiable information collected in connection with your access to our website will be used in order to process your requests. Any processing or further use of your data for consulting, advertising, and market research purposes shall require your express consent.

Automatically acquired data not constituting personally identifiable information
As you access the EPSG website, some general information will occasionally be automatically (i.e. not via any kind of registration) collected. This information is not related to you in person and is not personally identifiable (e.g. Internet browser used for access, number of visits, average time spent on a page, browsed pages). We use this information to gauge the user appeal of our website, and to improve its content and functionality.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
In case IP-anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address will be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP-anonymization is active on this website.
Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing them other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
All texts, images, graphics, audio, video, and animation data as well as their specific presentation on the EPSG website are subject to copyright law and other laws pertaining to the protection of intellectual property. They must not be copied for commercial purposes or for dissemination, nor may they be modified and used on other websites. This clause does not apply to textual and illustration material expressly marked for further dissemination.
Please be aware that some pages on the EPSG website also contain illustrations whose copyright lies with authors who have provided them.
All of the information on this Internet site has been thoroughly checked for accuracy. We strive to continually expand and update the information provided here. However, we do not guarantee that the information is complete, accurate, and up-to-date at any given time. The EPSG does not provide a warranty of any kind, express or implied, for any of the information made available on this site. The EPSG does not assume any liability for damages directly or indirectly arising from the use of this website, unless these are caused by an intentional or grossly negligent act of the EPSG.
Any direct or indirect reference to an Internet page ("link") outside the domain of the EPSG's own responsibility shall not effect any legal liability on the part of the EPSG, unless the EPSG had prior knowledge of the content of that linked page, and had been technically capable of preventing access to that page if there had been any unlawful content on it, and could have reasonably been expected to take such measures. The EPSG expressly declares that no illegal content was in evidence on linked pages at the time of linking. The EPSG has no influence on current and future forms of presentation, content, and authorship of linked/referenced pages. The EPSG therefore expressly distances itself from all content of linked/referenced pages that have been modified since the time of linking from this site. This assertion applies to all links and references established on the EPSG's own Internet presence. Liability for any illegal, inaccurate, or incomplete content and, in particular, for any damages arising from the use or non-use of information presented on a linked page lies solely with the provider of that linked page, and not with the provider of a reference, by means of a link, to that page containing the content in question.
The EPSG strives to offer you an innovative and informative website. The intellectual property contained therein, e.g. patents, brands, and copyrights, is protected by law. Your access to this website does not imply a license of use of any of this intellectual property owned by the EPSG or third parties.
All information or data provided here, all acts of use of this website, and any act, default, or omission related to or incidental to this website shall be governed by and construed in accordance with German law.
The place of performance and sole legal venue shall be Frauenfeld, Switzerland.
