If the Studer Portal is used by a third party, i.e. other persons than the operator of the installation, they have to confirm by their inscription and by accepting these "terms of use" that they have received prior consent from the installation operator to register and to modify installation data of a specific installation within the Studer Portal and as well as retrieving its data.
