Privacy


 

 


 

Thank you for your interest in our company. Privacy is particularly important to Golden Ticket Tapes. The Golden Ticket Tapes website can be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Golden Ticket Tapes. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

Golden Ticket Tapes, as data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. General information

Definitions:

Golden Ticket Tapes’ Privacy Statement is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation Giver in the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

a) Personal data

Personal data are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Person concerned

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

c) Processing

Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in relation to personal data, such as the collection, collection, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocation of that natural person.

f) Pseudonymization

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or controller

The data controller or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

h) Contract processors

Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.

i) Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a particular investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.

j) Third parties

A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data processor, the data processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data processor or the data processor.

k) Consent

Consent shall mean any informed and unequivocal expression of will voluntarily given by the data subject in the particular case in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

the name and address of the controller
is the person responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in force in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature:

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, including, for example, orders or requests you send to Golden Ticket as a site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the lock symbol of your browser line. The address line also changes from “http://” to “https:”.

If you transmit data to us while SSL or TLS encryption is activated, it cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you agree to provide us with your payment data, e.g. account number for direct debit authorization, this data is required for payment processing.

For all common means of payment, payment is processed exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. This means that your payment data transmitted to us cannot be read by third parties.

For more information on the payment methods used on this page, see below.


 

2. Data acquisition

Cookies

Golden Ticket Tapes’ websites use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, Golden Ticket Tapes can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized for the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our Internet site may be fully usable.

Collection of general data and information

Golden Ticket Tapes’ website collects a series of general data and information each time a person or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

By using this general data and information Golden Ticket Tapes does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by Golden Ticket both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.


 

3. Data processing, storage and provision

Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case for example with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).

Entitled interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

Legal 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 failure to provide them

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.


 

4 Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the data retention purpose or to the extent provided for by the European regulator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.


 

5. Your rights regarding data privacy

Information

At all times, you have the right to information regarding the storage of your personal data; also in regard to its origin, the recipients, whom the data was transferred to and the purpose of data processing.

Correction

You have the right, to request us to immediately correct your inaccurate personal data or to complete incomplete personal data for the purpose of processing.

Erasure

An erasure of the stored personal data is conducted, provided that you revoke your consent for storage, you object to the processing of your personal data, the keeping of data is no longer required to fulfil the purpose pursued with the storage or storage is impermissible based on legal specifications.

Restriction of processing

In the event that you dispute the personal data stored in connection with you or if you require the personal data for the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims but at the same time, we do no longer require this data, you can request the restriction of the processing of said personal data.

Furthermore, you can restrict the processing for the period from lodging an objection against processing to the decision and the granting of such.

If the restriction of processing your personal data takes place, this data is no longer processed.

Objection

In the event that processing your personal data is required based on a legitimate interest, on our part as well as on the part of a third party or the processing is required to perform a task in the public interest or is being exercised in public authority, you have the right, for reasons resulting from your specific circumstances, to lodge an objection against said processing at any time.

In the event of an objection, we no longer process your personal data, unless we can verify compelling grounds requiring protection, which predominate your interests, rights and freedoms or require processing for the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims.

This right to object also applies to direct advertising and profiling in connection with it.

Revocation

You have the right to revoke consent given for the use of data at any time. The legality of processing conducted based on the consent remains unaffected by this until revocation.

 


 

6. Contact via the website

Due to legal requirements, Golden Ticket’s website contains information that enables us to contact our company electronically quickly and to communicate directly with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller via e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data voluntarily provided by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

 


 

7. Newsletter

Subscribe to our newsletter

On the Golden Ticket Tapes website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.

Golden Ticket Tapes regularly informs its customers and business partners about the company’s offers by means of a newsletter. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail in the double opt-in procedure is sent to the e-mail address entered by the person concerned for the first time for sending the newsletter. This confirmation e-mail serves to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorized the receipt of the newsletter as the person concerned.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the data controller.

The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected in the context of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking your consent, you will find a corresponding link in every newsletter. It is also possible at any time to unsubscribe directly from the newsletter dispatch on the website of the controller or to inform the controller in any other way.

Newsletter tracking

Golden Ticket Tapes’ newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Golden Ticket Tapes uses the embedded pixel-code to determine if and when an email has been opened by an individual and which links in the email have been accessed by the individual.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the dispatch of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Persons concerned are entitled at any time to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the data controller. Unsubscribing from receiving the newsletter will automatically be interpreted by Golden Ticket as a cancellation.

MailChimp

For sending newsletters, this website uses the services of MailChimp. This is a service with which, among other things, the dispatch of newsletters can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of newsletter subscription (e.g. e-mail address and first name) will be stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA.

Mailchimp is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is certified according to the “EU-US-Privacy-Shield”. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.

MailChimp also helps us to analyse and evaluate our newsletter campaigns. For example, if you open a file sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the e-mail (so-called web beacon) connects to the MailChimp servers in the USA.

This allows you to see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The information collected cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient and is used exclusively for the purpose of statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. This helps to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of subscribers.

In case you do not want MailChimp to perform an analysis, we provide a link in every newsletter message that allows you to unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can also cancel the newsletter directly on the website.

Data will only be processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

You can revoke this consent at any time by cancelling the newsletter. Data processing processes that have already taken place remain unaffected by the revocation.

Golden Ticket stores the data you have provided to us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. After unsubscription from the newsletter the data will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of MailChimp. However, this does not affect the data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area).

Further information can be found in the data protection regulations of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

 


 

8. Widgets, plugins and other tools

For more information, see Spotify’s privacy policy: HTTPS://WWW.SPOTIFY.COM/DE/LEGAL/PRIVACY-POLICY/

However, if you do not want Spotify to associate your visit to our pages with your Spotify account, you would need to log out of your Spotify account.

Privacy policy for use and usage of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components of Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

Facebook is operated by Facebook, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for the processing of personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the person’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits with every visit to our website by the person concerned and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged on to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the person concerned does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of their Facebook account before calling up our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the person concerned to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

Privacy policy for use and usage of Instagram

The controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that can be qualified as an audiovisual platform that allows users to share photos and videos and to redistribute such data on other social networks.

Instagram’s services are operated by Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which an instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the person’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding component of instagram. In the course of this technical procedure, Instagram is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes which specific subpage the person concerned visits with each visit to our website by the person concerned and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned to the person’s Instagram account by Instagram. If the person concerned presses one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Instagram.
Instagram receives information via the Instagram component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged in to Instagram at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether or not the person concerned clicks on the Instagram component. If the person concerned does not want such information to be transmitted to Instagram, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Instagram account before accessing our website.

Further information and Instagram’s current privacy policy can be found at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/

Privacy policy for the use and application of YouTube

The controller has integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, music videos, trailers or videos produced by users themselves can be called up via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/ In the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged on to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits by calling up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged on to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the person concerned, this can prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before calling up our website.

The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

Web analysis with Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of the Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA on our website. We entered into an agreement with Google for order processing and fully implement the legal provisions for the use of Google Analytics.

We use the “Activation of the IP anonymisation” feature on this website. In this case, your IP address is already truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and therefore, anonymised. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases.

Using cookies, information such as the operating system, the browser, your IP address, the website you previously accessed (referrer URL) and the date and time of your visit to our website is collected. The information on the use of our website, which is created in this manner, is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google uses this information to analyse your use of our website, to compile reports on the website activity for the website operator and to provide other services associated with the use of the website and Internet. Insofar as required by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google, Google will also transfer this information to these third parties. This use is anonymised or pseudonymised. You can find more detailed information on this directly at Google.

More information on how user data is handled at Google Analytics can be found in the Google privacy policy: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

You can prevent the collection of the data created by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google. However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use the full range of the functions on this website.

 


9. Payment methods

Privacy policy for Klarna as payment method

We integrated components from Klarna on this website. Klarna is an online payment service provider, which allows purchase on account or flexible payment by instalments. Klarna also offers other services, such as buyer protection or identity and credit checks.

Klarna is operated by Klarna AB, Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden.

If the person concerned chooses either “purchase on account” or “hire purchase” as payment option during the order process in our online shop, data of the person concerned are automatically transmitted to Klarna. By selecting one of these payment options, the person concerned consents to the transfer of personal data required for processing the invoice or instalment purchase or for identity and creditworthiness checks.

Personal data transmitted to Klarna generally includes first name, last name, address, date of birth, gender, e-mail address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number and other data required to process an invoice or instalment purchase. Personal data in connection with the respective order are also necessary for the processing of the purchase contract. In particular, payment information such as bank details, card number, expiry date and CVC code, number of articles, article number, data on goods and services, prices and tax charges, information on previous purchasing behaviour or other information on the financial situation of the person concerned may be exchanged.

The transmission of the data is intended in particular for identity verification, payment administration and fraud prevention. The controller will communicate personal data to Klarna in particular if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. The personal data exchanged between Klarna and the controller will be transmitted by Klarna to credit reference agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to verify identity and creditworthiness.

Klarna also passes on the personal data to affiliated companies (Klarna Group) and service providers or subcontractors if this is necessary to fulfil contractual obligations or if the data is to be processed on behalf of Klarna.

Klarna collects and uses data and information about the payment history of the person concerned as well as probability values for their behaviour in the future (so-called scoring) to decide on the establishment, implementation or termination of a contractual relationship. Scoring is calculated on the basis of scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical methods.

The person concerned has the possibility to revoke his or her consent to the handling of personal data at any time. A revocation does not affect personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

Klarna’s current privacy policy can be found at https://cdn.klarna.com/1.0/shared/content/policy/data/de_en/data_protection.pdf.

Privacy policy for PayPal as payment method
