Collection, processing and disclosure of personal data during ordering
When you place an order, we collect and process your personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfil and process your order, as well as to process your enquiries. The provision of your personal data is necessary in order to conclude a contract. Failure to provide your data will result in your inability to conclude a contract.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by notifying us or the transport company, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal.
Use of personal data if you select the Klarna payment method
If you choose Klarna payment services’ purchase on account (Rechnungskauf) and/or instalment purchase (Ratenkauf) payment methods, you agree that we may collect and disclose to Klarna the personal data needed to process a purchase on account and carry out an associated ID and credit check, including your full name, address, date of birth, gender, email address, IP address and telephone number, as well as the data needed to complete a purchase on account in connection with your order, including the number of items ordered, the article number(s), and the invoice amount and taxes in percent. The processing of this data is designed to facilitate the purchase on account and instalment purchase payment methods, as well as the credit checks necessary for these. The processing of this data occurs on the basis of your consent under Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may withdraw your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal. This data is disclosed so that Klarna can carry out an ID and credit check to process your purchase and issue an invoice according to your chosen payment method. Klarna requires purchasers’ personal data in order to request information from credit agencies as part of its ID and credit checks. In Germany, this may include the following credit agencies: - Schufa Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, D-65203 Wiesbaden - Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, Postfach 5001 66, D-22701 Hamburg - Creditreform Bremen Seddig KG, Contrescarpe 17, D-28203 Bremen - infoscore Consumer Data GmbH, Rheinstrasse 99, D-76532 Baden-Baden.
In order to make a decision regarding the conclusion, performance or termination of your contractual relationship, in addition to an address check, Klarna also collects and uses data regarding purchasers’ payment history and probability values for this behaviour in the future. Klarna calculates these score values on the basis of a scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical procedure. Among other data, Klarna will also use your address data for this purpose. If, after this calculation, it appears that your credit rating is not given, Klarna will inform you immediately.
Objection to the use of personal data by Klarna
1. You can withdraw your consent to Klarna’s use of your personal data at any time. However, Klarna may retain the right to process, use and disclose your personal data to the extent necessary for the contractual payment processing using Klarna’s services, as required by law, or as required by a court or other authority. 2. You may, of course, request information about the personal data stored by Klarna at any time. This right is guaranteed by the German Federal Data Protection Act.
