The processing of your personal data for specific purposes (e.g. the use of your e-mail address for marketing purpos-es) may also take place subject to your consent. You can normally revoke this at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before the applicable data protection legislation came into force. You will be informed separately in the text of the declaration of consent about the purposes and the conse-quences of revocation or not granting consent.
As a rule, any revocation of consent only applies to the future. Any processing taking place prior to the revocation is not affected by this and remains lawful.

3 The data categories processed by us for data we do not receive directly from you, and their origin

To the extent that this is necessary for the provision of our services, we process personal data permissibly received from other companies or third parties (e.g. information bureaux, address publishers). We also process personal data that we have permissibly obtained, received or acquired from publicly accessible sources (such as telephone directo-ries, commercial registers and registers of associations, civil registers, debtor registers, land registers, the press, Inter-net and other media) and are permitted to process.

Relevant personal data may in particular include:

  • Personal details (name, date of birth, place of birth, nationality, marital status, profession/sector and comparable data);
  • Contact details (address, e-mail address, telephone number and comparable data);
  • Address details (registration details and comparable data);
  • Payment confirmation/cover note for bank and credit cards;
  • Information about your financial situation (creditworthiness data including scoring, i.e. data for assessing the economic risk);
  • Client history;
  • Data about your use of the telemedia we offer (information (e.g. of retrieval of our websites, apps or newsletter, sites/links clicked on, entries and comparable data);
  • Video data

4 Recipients or categories of recipients of your data

Any forwarding of your data takes place exclusively in compliance with the applicable data protection legislation and only as long as the legal basis permits this. Within our organisation, only those departments receive your data that require them to fulfil our contractual and statutory duties or for the implementation of our legitimate interests.

Any forwarding of your data to external bodies takes place exclusively

  • in connection with contract conclusion;
  • for the purpose of fulfilling statutory requirements according to which we are obliged to disclose, report or for-ward data or where the forwarding of data is in the public interest;
  • to the extent that external service providers processing orders or assuming functions process data on our behalf (e.g. external data centres, support/maintenance of IT applications, archiving, document processing, call centre services, compliance services, controlling, data screening for anti-money laundering purposes, data validation and plausibility check, data destruction, purchasing/procurement, client administration, lettershops, marketing, media technology, research, risk controlling, invoicing, telephone services, website management, audit services, credit institutions, printers or data disposal companies, courier services, logistics);
  • on the basis of our legitimate interests or those of third parties for the purposes stated in section no. 2.3 above (e.g. to authorities, information bureaux e.g. Intrum AG or Crif AG, debt collection agencies, lawyers, courts, ex-perts, Group companies, committees and supervisory authorities);
  • if you have granted us your consent to the transmission of your data to third parties.

5 Duration of the storage of your data

We process and store your data for the duration of our business relationship. This also includes the initiation of a con-tract (pre-contractual legal relationship) and the conclusion of a contract.
We are also subject to various statutory and regulatory retention and documentation obligations resulting, inter alia, from company and commercial law, regulatory provisions and tax law. 
 The periods specified therein for retention and/or documentation may be up to ten years after the end of the contrac-tual relationship or pre-contractual legal relationship.
Furthermore, special statutory provisions can entail a longer period of retention such as the safeguarding of evidence within the framework of statutory periods of limitation. 
Data no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or statutory obligations and rights are deleted at regular inter-vals unless their further processing (for a limited period) is necessary in order to fulfil the purposes derived from an overriding legitimate interest listed in section 2.3. Such an overriding legitimate interest also exists, for instance, if deletion is not possible or only possible with a disproportionately high outlay owing to the specific type of storage and any processing for other purposes is ruled out by suitable technical and organisational measures.

6 Processing of your data in a third country or by an international organisation

Data transmission to entities in countries other than the one in which the controller is based (so-called third country) takes place if this proves necessary for the execution of an order from or contract with you, if it is legally prescribed (e.g. reporting obligations under tax law), it constitutes a legitimate interest of ours or a third party or you have granted us your consent for this. 
The recipients of your data may be located in Switzerland, the European Economic Area (EEA), the UK, the USA and any other country in the world.

The processing of your data in a third country can also take place in connection with the commissioning of service providers for the purpose of order processing. If, for the third country in question or for specific sectors in the third country, there is no decision by the competent data protection authority of the country in which the data transferring entity is located on an appropriate level of data protection in the third country, corresponding agreements (such as EU standard contracts) and additional measures may be used as a basis for the transfer. Information about the suitable and adequate safeguards and the possibility of receiving a copy of these can be obtained on request from the individ-ual controller or from the data protection officer/advisor.

7 Scope of your obligations to supply us with your data

You only need to supply the data that is required for initiating and implementing a business relationship or for a pre-contractual relationship with us or that we are legally obliged to collect. Without these data we will normally be unable to conclude or execute the contract. This can also apply to data required at a later stage within the scope of the busi-ness relationship. Should we request any further data from you above and beyond this, we will notify you separately of the voluntary nature of such disclosures.

8 Existence of automated decision-making in each case (including profiling)

We do not use purely automated decision-making processes. Should we use such a procedure in individual cases in the future, we will inform you about this separately insofar as this is required by law.
Under certain circumstances we may partially process your data with the aim of assessing specific personal aspects (profiling).    
To enable us to inform and advise you about products in a targeted manner, we may make use of evaluation tools. These facilitate needs-based product design, communication and publicity including market and opinion research.
Such procedures can also be used to assess your solvency and creditworthiness and to combat money laundering and fraud. So-called “score values” can be used to assess your solvency and creditworthiness. Scoring uses mathe-matical procedures to calculate the probability of a client meeting his or her payment obligations in accordance with the contract. Such score values accordingly support us, for example, in assessing creditworthiness and making deci-sions regarding the sale of products and are incorporated in our risk management. The calculation is based on math-ematically and statistically recognised and proven procedures and carried out on the basis of your data, in particular your income situation, outgoings, existing liabilities, profession, employer, length of employment, experience from existing business relationships, timely contractual repayment of previous loans and information from credit agencies.
Information on nationality and special categories of personal data are not processed here.

9 Your data protection rights

Under certain conditions, you can assert your data protection rights towards us.

  • You are entitled to receive information from us about your data stored with us in accordance with the provisions of (possibly with restrictions under national law).
  • At your request we will correct the data stored about you if they are inapplicable or erroneous. 
  • If you wish, we will delete your data unless prevented from doing so by other statutory regulations (e.g. statutory retention obligations or any restrictions under national law) or an overriding interest on our part (e.g. for the de-fence of our rights and claims).
  • You can ask us to restrict the processing of your data.
  • You can also register an objection to the processing of your data requiring us to cease processing your data. However, this right of objection only applies if special circumstances pertain with regard to your personal situa-tion and the rights of our Group may obstruct your right of objection.
  • You also have the right to receive your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to transmit it to a third party.
  • You are furthermore entitled to revoke consent granted to us for the processing of personal data at any time with future effect (see 2.4).
  • You also have recourse to a right of complaint to a data protection supervisory authority. However, we rec-ommend that you first always address a complaint to the respective controller or to the data protection of-ficer/advisor. 

If possible, your requests to exercise your rights should be addressed in writing to the respective controller spec-ified above or to the data protection officer/advisor. 

Information about your right to object 

  1. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data on the basis of a balancing of interests or in the public interest, if there are reasons for doing so arising from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on this provision. Should you register an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we are able to provide evidence of compelling legitimate grounds for such processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of your legal claims.
  2. We may also process your personal data to conduct direct advertising. If you do not wish to receive any advertising, you are entitled at any time to register an objection to this; this also applies to any profiling connected with such direct advertising. We will observe this objection in the future. We will no longer process your data for the purposes of direct advertising if you object to its processing for these purposes. 

The objection can be made informally and should, if possible, be addressed to the respective controller named in section 1.

Some of the Internet pages on our website contain links to YouTube. In general, we are not responsible for the content of websites to which links are provided. In the event that you follow a link to YouTube, however, we would like to point out that YouTube stores the data of its users (e.g. personal information, IP address) in accordance with its own data usage guidelines and uses it for business purposes.
We directly embed YouTube saved videos on some of our internet pages.
When YouTube videos are integrated, content from the YouTube website is displayed in parts of a browser window. However, the YouTube videos are only called up by clicking on them separately. This technique is also called "framing". When you call up a (sub-)page of our website on which YouTube videos are embedded in this form, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser.
YouTube content is only integrated in "extended data protection mode". YouTube itself provides this mode and thus ensures that YouTube does not initially save any cookies on your device. However, when you call up the relevant pages (i.e. when you click on the video), the IP address and possibly other data (see the respective provider's data protection declaration) are transmitted and may thus indicate which of our Internet pages you have visited. As a rule, however, this information cannot be assigned to you personally, unless you have logged in to YouTube or another Google service before accessing the page or are permanently logged in.
As soon as you start the playback of an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube only saves cookies on your device through the extended data protection mode, which do not contain any personally identifiable data, unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and 
extensions ("opt-out").
