Prices and Conditions of the Search Service


The prices for a search consist of the charges for the processing time (charged per 15- minute interval) and the costs for the online search and the display of information in STN International.


If you would like us to perform a search for you, please contact us. We will be happy to provide you with detailed advice and a time and cost estimate.


Small and medium-sized companies (SME) domiciled in Germany  who use our search service may be eligible for funding by the German Federal Government and the Federal States. For more information, please visit:


SDI Service (Selective Dissemination of Information Service)   

The SDI profile is set up after a search has been carried out. The search frequency (e.g., weekly, biweekly, or monthly) is to be chosen by the customer.
If you wish to order our SDI Service, you need to conclude an Online User Contract with STN International, since STN does the accounting and billing for SDI profile runs and delivers the results. This also enables you to cancel the SDI when needed.


The cost of our SDI Service depends on the complexity of the search query and the time and expenses incurred for initiating, checking, modifying, and deleting the search query as required by the customer.
