An order can only be processed when all of the mandatory information is entered completely and correctly in the booking window. The customer is responsible for the correct entry of the data and acknowledges the fact that the order will not be successful if the information is entered improperly. Forgery of documents as well as false disclosures of vintage cause withdrawal of the tickets.

Information according to §24 DSG 2000 for photo compare
It should be noted that a reference photo of a lift card holder is taken when he/she passes through a turnstile equipped with a camera – for the purpose of access control. This reference photo is compared with further photos, by lift staff, of the person walking through other camera-equipped turnstiles. The reference photo is deleted immediately after the expiry of the validity of the lift pass. The other photos are deleted 30 minutes after each passage through a turnstile, unless there is misuse of the lift pass.
It should be noted that the possibility also exists of purchasing lift tickets which are technically configured so that no photo is made when passing through a turnstile. In these cases, however, spot checks by the lift staff must be reckoned with.
