II. Use of website for information purposes

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. If you use our website for information only, i.e. you neither register nor transmit any information about yourself, we will not process any personal data, apart from data transferred by your browser to enable you to visit the website, and information transmitted to us by the cookies we use for statistical analysis of website usage.  

For technical purposes relating to provision of the website, we are obliged to process certain data transferred by you automatically to enable your browser to display our website and you to use it.

The following information is collected: host, IP address of user, possibly also the user’s name, date and time of access.

Our website uses Piwik, (now called Matomo, see matomo.org), a data protection-compliant open source web analytics system. It allows us to optimise the web pages and make them more user-friendly for you. Piwik uses “cookies”; these are text files that are saved to your computer and enable analysis of website usage. The collated data (incl. time, pages visited, user browser and operating system) is saved in a database. All IP addresses are truncated prior to being saved (the final tuple is removed).

For this purpose we transfer all personal data required for a credit check and use the information received on the statistical probability of a payment default. The credit information may contain probability values (score values) calculated on the basis of scientifically recognised mathematical and statistical methods. A range of markers – including income, addresses, profession, marital status and current payment behaviour – are used to determine the likelihood of future payment default by the customer. The result is expressed in the form of a payment value (or score). Information received in this way forms the basis of our decision to initiate, implement or conclude the contract. The option to select one of the payment types on offer is not dependent upon information of this kind.  

We process your personal data for the purpose of initiating, implementing and concluding a contract on the following legal basis:

• to protect our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in financially safeguarding our advance services and in protecting against payment default and fraud.

Your personal data is collected via Amazon or directly by us if you disclose it when placing your order or when you contact us (e.g. using the contact form or by email). We and Amazon are the responsible parties. All data collected via Amazon is processed on the Amazon servers and forwarded to us for contract processing, or to handle your enquiry in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 (b) GDPR.

The selected payment service providers also collect some of this data themselves if you open an account there. In this case, you will have to log in with the payment service provider using your access data during the order process. The privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies in this respect.

Sharing data with delivery service providers
Insofar as you give us your express consent during or after order, we will forward your email address to the selected delivery service provider on the basis of your consent as per Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 (a) GDPR, so that said delivery service provider can contact you prior to delivery to advise of or arrange the delivery.
You can withdraw your consent at any time by sending a message via the contact option detailed below or to the delivery service provider directly. Following withdrawal, we will delete your specified data unless you have expressly consented to your data being used in another way, or we reserve the right to further use the data in a way that is permitted by law and about which we have informed you in this policy.

Furthermore, a cookie will usually be placed on your page that saves your visit and further data about your visit on the social media platform.If you also have your own account on the social media platform, your visit will likewise be recorded by cookies or other technical means and assigned to your user account. This means that the social media platform is regularly able to analyse your user behaviour. A user profile with your interests is created, which the social media platform uses to tailor your user experience to your interests, and in particular to display targeted advertisements both within and outside of the social media platform – in some cases even across multiple devices. Your data may also be used for market research. Please see the privacy policies of the social media platform(s) we use for further details.We may also regularly use the data from the social media platform to tailor use of our fan page to your interests or to advertise to you.
