Collection, processing and use of personal data
We collect personal data (particulars of personal or objective relationships of a particular or definable natural person) only within the scope provided by you.
Your personal data is processed and used for completing and processing your order and also for processing your requests.
After the contract is processed completely, all the personal data is first saved taking into account the retention periods under fiscal and commercial law and then deleted after the expiry of the deadline, if you have not approved of the further processing and use.
We additionally refer to the following:
We use the Käufersiegel rating system. According to your order, we would like to request you to rate your purchase from us and comment on it. For this purpose, we will contact you within the scope of the order processing, whereby we will make use of the technical system of the supplier of the Käufersiegel rating tool, Händlerbund Management AG, Torgauer Straße 233 B, 04347 Leipzig, within the scope of order data processing. Your email address will only be used for this purpose here and not for any further use in particular and will also not be forwarded to other third parties. The personal data saved in this context in the technical system of the Käufersiegel rating system is deleted 3 months after the product delivery recorded for the rating.
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.
Using the personal data while selecting Klarna as the payment method
If you decide on Klarna’s payment services, Klarna bill and Klarna instalment purchase, as payment options, you have consented to the fact that we collect the following personal data necessary for processing the purchase on account and an identity and credit assessment and transfer it to Klarna; this data includes first and last name, address, date of birth, sex, email address, IP address, telephone number as well as the data necessary for processing the purchase on account, which is in connection with the order, such as the number of items, item number, invoice amount and taxes in percent. This data is transferred so that Klarna can generate an invoice for processing your purchase with the invoice processing desired by you and conduct an identity and credit assessment. Klarna thus has an authorised interest in the transfer of the personal data of the buyer in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and requires it to obtain information from credit reporting agencies for purposes of the identity and credit assessment. The credit reporting agencies in Germany are listed below:
- Schufa Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65203 Wiesbaden
- Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, PO Box 5001 66, 22701 Hamburg
- Creditreform Bremen Seddig KG, Contrescarpe 17, 28203 Bremen
- infoscore Consumer Data GmbH, Rheinstraße 99, 76532 Baden-Baden
Within the scope of the decision about the substantiation, execution or termination of the contractual relationship, Klarna, apart from an address check, also collects and uses information regarding the current payment history of the buyer as well as probability values regarding this behaviour
in future. These score values are calculated by Klarna on the basis of a scientifically accepted mathematical and statistical method. Klarna will also use your address data among other things for this. If this calculation indicates that your credit-worthiness is not
ensured, Klarna shall inform you about this immediately.
Revocation of the use of personal data as against Klarna
1. You can always revoke your consent to the use of personal data as against Klarna. However, if necessary, Klarna continues to remain authorised to process, use and transfer the personal data insofar as this is necessary for the contractual payment processing by Klarna’s services, is stipulated legally, or demanded by a court or an authority.
2. You can of course receive information at all times about the personal data saved by Klarna. The Federal Data Protection Act guarantees this right. If you as a buyer want this or want to notify changes in the saved data to Klarna, you can write to [email protected].

For individual payment methods such as "Pay Later" (invoice), "Pay Now" (payment by direct debit), "Financing" (hire purchase), Klarna reserves the right, if necessary, to obtain a credit report on the basis of mathematical-statistical procedures using credit reference agencies.
For this purpose, Klarna transmits the personal data required for a credit assessment, such as first and last name, address, gender, email address, IP address and data related to the order to a credit agency for the purpose of checking the identity and creditworthiness and uses the obtained information on the statistical probability of a payment default in order to reach a well-considered decision on the establishment, performance or termination of the contractual relationship. The credit report may contain probability values (score values) which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical methods and include, among other things, address data. Your legitimate interests will be taken into account in accordance with the legal requirements. The data processing serves the purpose of a credit asessment for contract initiation. The processing is carried out on the basis of art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR due to our overriding legitimate interest in protection against payment default if Klarna pays in advance.
