Use of personal data when selecting Klarna as a payment method

If you have chosen Klarna’s payment services Klarna Invoice and/or Klarna Installment Purchase as a payment option, you have consented that we have collected and transmitted to Klarna the following personal data necessary for the processing of the purchase on account and an identity and credit check, such as first and last name, address, date of birth, gender, e-mail address, IP address, telephone number, as well as the data necessary for the processing of the purchase on account, which are related to the order, such as the number of items, item number, invoice amount and taxes in percent. The data processing serves the purpose of offering the payment methods invoice purchase and installment purchase as well as the credit assessment required for this. The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
The transmission of this data takes place so that Klarna can create an invoice and carry out an identity and credit check for the processing of your purchase with the invoice processing requested by you. Klarna requires the personal data of the buyer to obtain information from credit agencies for the purpose of identity and credit checks. In Germany, this may be the following credit agencies:
– Schufa Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65203 Wiesbaden, Germany.
– Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, P.O. Box 5001 66, 22701 Hamburg, Germany
– Creditreform Bremen Seddig KG, Contrescarpe 17, 28203 Bremen, Germany
– infoscore Consumer Data GmbH, Rheinstrasse 99, 76532 Baden-Baden.
In the context of the decision on the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship, Klarna collects and uses, apart from an address check, information on the past payment behavior of the buyer and probability values for this behavior in the future. The calculation of these score values by Klarna is based on a scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical method. For this purpose, Klarna will also use your address data, among other things. If this calculation shows that your creditworthiness is not given, Klarna will inform you immediately.

Revocation of the use of personal data against Klarna

1. you can revoke your consent to the use of personal data at any time to Klarna. However, Klarna remains entitled to process, use and transfer the personal data, if necessary, insofar as this is necessary for the contractual payment processing by Klarna’s services, is required by law, or is required by a court or an authority.
2. you can, of course, at any time receive information about the personal data stored by Klarna. This right is guaranteed by the Federal Data Protection Act. If you as a buyer wish to do so or to notify Klarna of any changes regarding the stored data, you can contact datenschutz@klarna.de.

We use social network plug-ins on our website. To keep you in control of your data, we use the privacy-safe “Shariff” buttons.
Without your explicit consent, no links to the servers of social networks are established and consequently no data is transmitted.

By logging in, you give your consent to the transfer of your data to the respective social media provider. Here, among other things, both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited are transmitted. If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the collected information will also be assigned to your corresponding profiles.

We use plug-ins of social networks on our website by means of the “2-click solution”. In this case, no connections to the servers of the social networks are established without your express consent and consequently no data is transmitted.
With the standard integration of plug-ins, when you call up the pages of our website that contain such a plug-in, a link is established between your computer and the servers of the social network provider and the plug-in is displayed on the page by notifying your browser. In this process, both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited are transmitted to the provider servers. This applies regardless of whether you are registered or logged in to the social network. Transmission also takes place for non-registered or non-logged-in users. If you are also logged into the social network Facebook, this information will be assigned to your personal user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. by pressing the button), this information is also assigned to your user account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in. In order for you to retain control over your data, we have decided to deactivate the corresponding button for the time being. You can recognize this by the grayed-out button. Without your express consent – in the form of activating the button – no link to the social network server will be established and consequently no data will be transmitted.
Only when you activate the button, the button becomes active (highlighted in color) and a direct connection to the servers of the social network is established.
By activating it, you give your consent to the transmission of your data to the respective provider of the social network. Here, among other things, both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited are transmitted. If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the collected information will also be assigned to your corresponding profiles. You can only prevent this assignment by logging out of your user accounts with the social networks before visiting our website and before activating the buttons.

If you have made your profile publicly available in the Google Plus settings, your “+1s” may be displayed by Google as notices together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and ads on the Internet. If you do not want Google to assign the collected information directly to your Google Plus profile, you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our website.

Use of YouTube

On our website, we use the function for embedding YouTube videos of YouTube LLC. (901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; “YouTube”).
YouTube is a company affiliated with Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
The function displays videos deposited with YouTube in an iFrame on the website. The option “Extended data protection mode” is activated. As a result, YouTube does not store any information about visitors to the website. Only when you watch a video is information about it transmitted to YouTube and stored there. Your data may be transmitted to the USA. Google has certified itself in accordance with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus obliged to comply with the European data protection guidelines.
For more information about the collection and use of data by YouTube and Google, about your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy, please refer to YouTube’s privacy policy (https://www.youtube.com/t/privacy).

We use the reCAPTCHA service of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”) on our website. The query serves the purpose of distinguishing the input by a human or by automated, machine processing. For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and used there. In addition, the IP address and, if applicable, other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service are transmitted to Google. This data is processed by Google within the European Union and may also be transmitted to the USA. Google has certified itself in accordance with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus obliged to comply with the European data protection guidelines.
The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from the legitimate interest to protect our website from automated spying, abuse and SPAM.
