Credit assessment and scoring

If we make advance payments, e.g. in the case of a purchase on account, we may obtain creditworthiness information on the basis of mathematical-statistical procedures from Creditreform, Hellersbergstraße 12, 41460 Neuss, in order to protect our legitimate interests. For this purpose, we transmit the personal data required for a credit assessment to Creditreform and use the information received about the statistical probability of a payment default for a weighed decision about the payment option to be granted.

The creditworthiness information may include probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical methods and in the calculation of which, among other things, address data are included. Your interests worthy of protection will be taken into account in accordance with the statutory provisions. You can object to this check at any time with effect for the future. This may result in us no longer being able to offer you certain payment options.
