Using an email address for sending a direct advertising
Provided that you have not disagreed, we shall use your email address, which we received as part of selling an item or service, for the electronic transmission of advertising for your own goods and services, which are similar to those that you have already purchased from us.

Forwarding personal data
Your data is not forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent. Only our service partners, which we require for handling the contractual relationship, are excluded from this. In these cases, we strictly adhere to the specifications of the Federal Data Protection Act. The scope of the data transfer is restricted to a minimum.
Data collection and processing for credit assessment
If we have to pay advance costs, e.g. in case of a purchase on account, we reserve the right to obtain credit information if necessary, for safeguarding our authorised interests, on the basis of mathematical and statistical methods by using infoscore Consumer Data GmbH, Rheinstraße 99, 76532 Baden-Baden. For this, we transfer the personal data required for a credit assessment there and use the information received about the statistical probability of a payment default for the carefully considered decision about the substantiation, execution or termination of the contractual relationship.
The credit information can contain probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically accepted mathematical and statistical methods and address data among other things is included in their calculation. Your interests that are worth being protected are considered in accordance with the statutory regulations.
Data collection and processing in case of the payment method purchase on account via BillSAFE
In case of a purchase on account transaction that is carried out via BillSAFE (a PayPal service), the seller irrevocably cedes his entire payment claim against you to PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. ,22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (“PayPal”).
In case of the payment method purchase on account via BillSAFE, PayPal conducts an identity and credit assessment. For purposes of processing the purchase on account, you are requested during the ordering process to specify your personal data such as first and last name, address, date of birth, email address and telephone number. PayPal uses the aforementioned data, together with additional data - such as shopping cart details, invoice amount, order history and payment records - to check whether the payment option to be allowed can be ensured with reference to the payment default and/or bad debt risks.
Within the scope of the legally permissible interests and considering your interests that are worth being protected, PayPal transfers your address data to credit reporting agencies for the identity and credit assessment if necessary. The institutes in Germany are given below:
For the purpose of its own credit check, PayPal retrieves credit information on the basis of mathematical and statistical methods (probability and/or score values) from the institutes mentioned above. The evaluation of these score values allows PayPal to take a decision about the substantiation, execution or termination of the contractual relationship. In addition to your address details, information regarding your current payment history as well as the probability values regarding your payment history in the future is included as well.
Your personal data is transferred to one of the abovementioned credit agencies for purposes of identity assessment as well.
Here, the credit agency compares the data specified by you with the data saved about you and notifies the degree of compliance in percentage values. In addition, a reference to an ID-based check carried out at the credit agency in the past can also be provided if necessary. PayPal can use the transferred compliance rates to identify whether a person is saved under the address specified by you in the database of the credit agency.
Paypal ensures in this regard that the mentioned institutes process and/or use the data on their part exclusively within the scope of the specific function. For additional information about the data protection regulations of PayPal’s BillSAFE, visit: http://www.billsafe.de/privacy-policy/merchant
