Addresses

Addresses (sender and/or receiver) are usually part of a document.

Address extraction

In our extraction process we rely on our own internal address management proxy to improve our extraction rates. To give you additional matching measures, we provide an address_id, which is our internal reference to that address.

The address changed!

In some cases, we might update the address if a company moves to a new location, in this case you will get the updated address, while it still has the original address_id. By providing the same address_id, you are able to update your address as well, if that is convenient for you.

Company vs private address

We don’t explicitly indicate if it is a company or a private address, but we do only fill in either value company_name or contact_person_name accordingly. Based on that, if no company_name is given, we expect it to be a private address.

Address attributes

All fields (including address_id) are optional, none of these are required and will only be provided if available. Addresses are in general readonly and will not be specified any further.
