31. Payment: Privacy Policy for Sofortüberweisung as a payment method

The controller has integrated Instant Transfer components on this website. Sofortüberweisung is a payment service that enables cashless payment for products and services on the Internet. Sofortüberweisung represents a technical procedure by which the online retailer immediately receives a payment confirmation. This enables a merchant to deliver goods, services or downloads to the customer immediately after ordering.

The operating company of Sofortüberweisung is the SOFORT GmbH, Fußbergstraße 1, 82131 Gauting, Germany.

If the data subject selects "Sofortüberweisung" as a payment option during the order process in our online shop, data of the affected person will be automatically transferred to Sofortüberweisung. With a selection of this payment option, the data subject consents to a transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

During the purchase via Sofortüberweisung the buyer transmits the PIN and the TAN to the Sofort GmbH. Sofortüberweisung then executes a transfer to the online retailer after a technical check of the account balance and retrieval of further data to check the account funds. The execution of the financial transaction is then communicated to the online retailer automatically.

The personal data exchanged with Sofortüberweisung are first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for payment processing. The purpose of the transmission of the data is payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will provide Sofortüberweisung with other personal information even if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. The personal data exchanged between Sofortüberweisung and the controller may, under certain circumstances, be transmitted to credit reference agencies by Sofortüberweisung. This transmission aims at the identity and credit check.

Sofortüberweisung may transfer the personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors, as far as this is necessary to fulfill the contractual obligations or the data is to be processed in the order.

The data subject has the option to revoke the consent to the handling of personal data at any time in relation to Sofortüberweisung. A revocation has no effect on personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

The applicable data protection provisions of Sofortüberweisung can be found at https://www.sofort.com/ger-DE/datenschutzerklaerung-sofort-gmbh/.

32. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GMO are based. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMOs are based. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. It considered in that regard that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

33. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

Our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders, if the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO.

34. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

35. Statutory or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (eg tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (eg information about the contracting party). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.

36. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.

This data protection declaration was created by the data protection declaration generator of DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which as External Data Protection Officer Munich is active, in cooperation with the Attorney for data protection law Christian Solmecke created.
