We use the PayPal Check-Out payment service from PayPal (Europe) S.à.rl et Cie, SCA (22-24 Boulevard Royal L-2449, Luxembourg; "PayPal") on our website. The data processing serves the purpose of being able to offer you payment via the payment service. By selecting and using payment via PayPal, credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal or "Pay later" via PayPal, the data required for payment processing will be transmitted to PayPal in order to be able to fulfill the contract with you using the selected payment method. This processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

Cookies may be stored here that enable your browser to be recognized. The data processing that takes place as a result is based on Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of GDPR due to our overriding legitimate interest in offering a customer-oriented range of different payment methods. You have the right to object to this processing of personal data concerning you at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation.

Credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal & “Pay later” via PayPal
For individual payment methods such as credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal or “Pay later” via PayPal, PayPal reserves the right to obtain a credit report based on mathematical-statistical procedures using credit agencies. To do this, PayPal transmits the personal data required for a credit check to a credit agency and uses the information received on the statistical probability of a payment default to make a balanced decision about the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship. The credit report may contain probability values ​​(score values) that are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedures and whose calculation includes, among other things, address data. Your legitimate interests will be taken into account in accordance with the statutory provisions. The data processing serves the purpose of the credit check for the initiation of a contract. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR due to our overriding legitimate interest in protection against payment default if PayPal makes advance payments.
You have the right to object to this processing of personal data concerning you based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR at any time by notifying PayPal for reasons arising from your particular situation. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract with the payment method you have requested. Failure to provide the data means that the contract cannot be concluded with the payment method you have selected.

Third party providers
When paying using a third-party payment method, the data required for payment processing is transmitted to PayPal. This processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. To carry out this payment method, the data may then be passed on by PayPal to the respective provider. This processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Local third-party providers can be, for example:
  • Immediately (SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich, Germany)
  • giropay (Paydirekt GmbH, Stephanstr. 14-16, 60313 Frankfurt am Main)

Purchase on account via PayPal

To carry out this payment method, the data is then sent by PayPal to Ratepay GmbH (Franklinstraße 28-29, 10587 Berlin; "Ratepay") in order to be able to fulfill the contract with you using the selected payment method. This processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The data processing serves the purpose of credit checks for the initiation of a contract.

Analysis advertising tracking

Use of Google Analytics 4
We use the web analysis service Google Analytics provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; “Google”) on our website.
The data processing serves the purpose of analyzing this website and its visitors as well as for marketing and advertising purposes. For this purpose, Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
The following information may be collected: IP address, date and time of the page visit, click path, information about the browser you use and the device you use, pages visited, referrer URL (website you used to access our website), location data, purchasing activities. Google may link your data with other data, such as your search history, your personal accounts, your usage data from other devices and any other data Google has about you.

Your IP address will be shortened by us on our own servers beforehand. Google therefore only receives pseudonymized data.

Google uses technologies such as cookies, web storage in the browser and tracking pixels, which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The use of cookies or similar technologies takes place with your consent on the basis of Section 25 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 TDDDG in conjunction with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a of GDPR.

Your personal data will be processed with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until the revocation.

We use the advanced implementation of consent mode (Advanced Consent Mode). Even if consent is not given, user data is transmitted to Google in the form of "pings". These pings can contain the following information, among others: IP address to derive the IP country (the IP address is not logged), date and time of the page visit, URL of the pages visited, user agent, referrer URL (website from which our website was accessed) or information about the triggering of website events such as a conversion. On the basis of this information, Google models user data in order to be able to carry out a comprehensive usage analysis despite the refusal of consent.

The information generated in this way about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. For the USA, there is an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF). Google has certified itself according to the TADPF and is therefore committed to complying with European data protection principles. Both Google and US government authorities have access to your data.

Use of Google Ads Conversion Tracking
We use the online advertising program “Google Ads” on our website and, as part of this, conversion tracking (visit action evaluation). Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; Google).
When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. This means that there is no way that cookies can be tracked across Ads customers' websites.
The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.
We use the advanced implementation of consent mode (Advanced Consent Mode). Even if consent is not given, user data is transmitted to Google in the form of "pings". These pings can contain the following information, among others: IP address to derive the IP country (the IP address is not logged), date and time of the page visit, URL of the pages visited, user agent, referrer URL (website from which our website was accessed) or information about the triggering of website events such as a conversion.

Your data may be transferred to the servers of Google LLC in the USA. For the USA, there is an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF). Google has certified itself according to the TADPF and is therefore committed to complying with European data protection principles.
The use of cookies or similar technologies takes place with your consent on the basis of Section 25 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 TDDDG in conjunction with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a of GDPR. The processing of your personal data takes place with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a of GDPR.

The Google Tag Manager itself does not store cookies, nor does it process personal data. However, it does enable the triggering of additional tags that can collect and process personal data.
Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found here .
Use of social plug-ins
We use social network plug-ins on our website. The integration of social plug-ins and the data processing that takes place in this way serves the purpose of optimizing the advertising for our products.
When social plug-ins are integrated, a link is established between your computer and the servers of the provider of the social network and the plug-in is displayed on the page by a message to your browser, provided you have expressly consented to this. Both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited are transmitted to the provider's servers. This applies regardless of whether you are registered with the social network or logged in. Transmission also takes place for unregistered or unlogged users. If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the information collected can also be assigned to your corresponding profiles. When you use the plug-in functions (e.g. by pressing the button), this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your social media accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons.
The use of cookies or similar technologies takes place with your consent on the basis of Section 25 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 TDDDG in conjunction with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a of GDPR.
