Map of RATING©REPAIR users in 2020
We do not know whether it is mere curiosity, serves scientific research or is of commercial use; in any case, we are repeatedly asked who the users of our service RATING©REPAIR are. We are therefore providing an overview of the user structure in 2020.
We only receive this information to the extent that visitors to our website also allow cookies to be set or subscribe. We therefore have no information on who has only visited our website but not used it. Furthermore, it does not record who only reads our freely available blog posts. In addition, these are also published on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and TumblR. Therefore we have many more readers than users. So we are only talking about users in a narrower sense.
The world map shows from which countries we were able to serve users with RATING©REPAIR in 2020. As expected, most of the interested parties are in Germany, where RATING EVIDENCE GmbH is based in Frankfurt am Main. The darker the color, the greater the number of users.

United Arab Emirates
In the first two months of 2021, we noticed that users from other countries that are not yet on this list above have joined the list now.
At the beginning of 2021, the user structure led to the following structure of our revenues, which were achieved exclusively through the sale of subscriptions:
RATING EVIDENCE GmbH generates additional sales from investments and other businesses that are not included in this chart. Due to the lifetime price guarantee and the guarantee to all subscribers not to lower prices for later subscribers, there was a slight increase in the average subscription fee over the last year. As a result, around a third is generated in Germany, a third in the countries of the European Union outside Germany and a third in countries outside the European Union.
We see a shift in user structures from month to month, depending on the topics we are dealing with. There was a clear jump in the number of users from China when our book “Social Credit Rating” was about to be published last year and announcements as well as excerpts from the articles could be put on our website.
In 2020 we installed a translation function from Google Translate on our website, which enabled a quick translation into almost all major languages in the world with just one click of the mouse. Although we do not know exactly how often this offer was used by our users, we have abolished the translation function. Therefore, no more data is passed on to Google Translate. On the one hand, many browsers automatically offer a translation if the visited website does not appear in the language preset in the browser. On the other hand, everything indicates that our users always speak English. Anyone who deals with the responsible and efficient allocation of capital as a resource and with the rating of all asset classes around the world obviously understands enough English.
"During a medical routine check-up my doctor once gave the - for me unknown - name of an illness to me and asked me if I might be infected with this illness. I then asked the doctor what the disease name meant and what the disease was all about. The doctor replied that I had already answered his question by asking him about this disease instead of giving him an answer right away. "Anyone", he said, "who has the disease that they have been asked about definitely knows that they suffer from it and would not hesitate a second to say yes." It is similar with our services from RATING EVIDENCE GmbH. Those who don't know what we can do may not suffer or may not suffer enough to see the value of our services on RATING©REPAIR. Get in touch with us if you are the one who understands what I mean." Dr. Oliver Everling, CEO of RATING EVIDENCE GmbH
