What personal data is collected and to what extent is it processed?

(1) Information about the browser type and version used;
(2) The operating system of the accessing device;

(9) Volume of data transferred

This data is stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with personal data of a specific user, so that individual site visitors cannot be identified.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interest). Our legitimate interest is to ensure the achievement of the purpose described below.

Purpose of the data processing

The temporary (automated) storage of data is necessary for the course of a website visit to enable delivery of the website. The storage and processing of personal data is also carried out to maintain the compatibility of our website for as many visitors as possible and to combat misuse and eliminate malfunctions. For this purpose, it is necessary to log the technical data of the retrieving computer in order to be able to react as early as possible to display errors, attacks on our IT systems and/or errors in the functionality of our website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to generally ensure the security of our information technology systems.

Duration of storage

The deletion of the aforementioned technical data takes place as soon as they are no longer needed to ensure the compatibility of the website for all visitors, but no later than 3 months after accessing our website.

Possibility of objection and deletion

You may object to the processing at any time pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO and request deletion of data pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO. You can find out which rights you are entitled to and how to assert them in the lower section of this privacy policy.

Automated credit assessment / scoring

If you wish to conclude a contract with us, we reserve the right to carry out exclusively automated processing of your personal data in order to check your creditworthiness. We are also entitled to make such an automated decision pursuant to Art. 22 (2) a DSGVO. Whether the contract can be concluded or not depends on the result of the automated credit check. In a credit check, statistical probabilities of a payment default are calculated. The creditworthiness information may include probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical methods. A large number of characteristics, such as income, address data, occupation, marital status and previous payment behavior, are used to infer the customer’s future risk of non-payment. The result is expressed in the form of a payment score. The information obtained in this way forms the basis for our decision on whether to establish, implement or terminate a contractual relationship. If you believe that you have been wrongly excluded from the conclusion of a contract on the basis of the credit check, you are welcome to explain your point of view to us by e-mail. We will then review the automated decision in accordance with Article 22 (3) DSGVO in the specific individual case. In order to be able to carry out the credit assessment, we may store and process your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

We transmit your data to the following provider(s) on the basis of the contract in progress in the cases listed below:

    Creditreform Reutlingen Degner KG is a consumer credit agency. It operates a database in which creditworthiness information about private individuals is stored.

    On this basis, Creditreform Reutlingen Degner KG provides creditworthiness information to its customers. Clients include, for example, credit institutions, leasing companies, insurance companies, telecommunications companies, receivables management companies, mail order, wholesale and retail companies, and other companies that supply goods or services.

    In the Creditreform Reutlingen Degner KG database, information is stored in particular about the name, address, date of birth, e-mail address (if applicable), payment history and shareholdings of individuals. The purpose of processing the stored data is to provide information about the creditworthiness of the requested person. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1f EU-DSGVO.

If a case is settled, the data is deleted on a daily basis three years after settlement. Pursuant to Section 882e of the German Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO), entries in the debtors’ register are deleted on a daily basis after three years have elapsed since the date of the entry order.
