For this purpose, we will transfer your personal data required for assessing your creditworthiness to the following service provider(s):

The information provided on your creditworthiness may comprise probability values (score values) which are calculated on the basis of scientifically accredited mathematical statistical processes and the calculation of which also includes address details. We will use the received information on the statistical probability of a payment default in order to make a balanced decision on the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship. Your interests which are worthy of protection will be considered pursuant to the statutory provisions.

The transmission of such data is made in order to enable Klarna to issue an invoice and carry out an identity and credit check for processing your purchase with your requested invoice processing method. Klarna has a legitimate interest in the transmission of the buyer’s personal data pursuant to BDSG and requires such data for obtaining information from credit reference agencies for the purpose of carrying out an identity and credit check.

The calculation of these score values is carried out by Klarna by means of a scientifically recognized mathematic-statistical procedure. Klarna will inter alia also use your address details for this purpose. Should this calculation show that you are not creditworthy, you will immediately be informed of this by Klarna.

Should you have deactivated such functions, this will be taken into account by the Google Tag Manager. For further details on the Google Tag Manager please visit:

13. Use of Google reCAPTCHA

On our website, we use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google LLC(1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). The request serves to determine whether the entry is made by a natural person or via automated machine processing. The request includes forwarding the IP address and other data required by Google for the service reCAPTCHA to Google, if applicable. For this purpose, your entry is forwarded to Google and further used there. Google will shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union and other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission.

The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time, this will not affect the legitimacy of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent prior to such withdrawal. For further information on Google reCAPTCHA as well as the related privacy policy please visit:

14. Use of Google Ads

Based on your consent (Article 6, Para. 1, lit. a GDPR), we use the marketing and remarketing service Google Ads on our website, which is also operated by Google Ireland Limited., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. You can revoke your consent to this at any time with effect for the future. Simply use one of the listed opt-out options. Google is directly responsible for some of the data processing.

With the help of Google Ads, we can target advertisements for our website in Google Search. Google Ads allows us to set specific keywords. An ad in Google’s search engine results will only be displayed if you use the search engine to retrieve a keyword-related search result. In the Google AdWords network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant web pages using an automated algorithm and according to previously defined keywords. If you click on a Google Ads ad and are thereby redirected to our website, Google will set a remarketing tag and a conversion cookie on your device. This can be a cookie or similar technology. If you then visit another website from the AdWords network, this remarketing tag, for example, will be read and you will receive a suitable advertising message. The conversion cookie allows us to see how many people are interacting with one of our ads.

This data is processed in connection with Google AdWords in an anonymized manner. That is, Google does not store or process, for example, your name or e-mail address, but processes the relevant data in a cookie-related manner within anonymized user profiles. These are not directly attributable to you. Neither we nor Google know who you are. The ads will be shown to the owner of a specific cookie ID.

The information collected through Google AdWords is sent to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement. This ensures that a data protection level comparable with the GDPR is observed ( Additional information and Google’s Privacy Policy can be found at

You can always prevent cookies from being set by our website through your browser settings. This also prevents the cookies associated with Google AdWords from being stored on your device. You can delete existing cookies already on your device.

You also have the ability to block interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, go to and change the settings as you see fit.
Finally, you can also set an opt-out cookie at!/.

15. Use of Facebook Pixel

On our website, we use “Facebook Pixel” from the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are located in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). We also use this tool based on your consent (Article 6, Para. 1, Sent. 1, lit. a GDPR). We use Facebook Pixel to provide you with personalized advertising on Facebook and to analyze your usage behavior on our website. You can revoke your consent to this at any time with effect for the future. Simply use one of the listed opt-out options.

When you visit our website, Facebook Pixel is activated and a cookie is set by us on your device (a so-called first-party cookie) through which data is collected. In addition, cookies are integrated directly by Facebook and other companies (third-party cookie). Furthermore, web beacons and other storage technology can be used. As a result, a so-called cookie is stored on your device.

Facebook Pixel allows us to monitor the effectiveness of Facebook ads (so-called “Facebook Ads”) and to analyze your interaction with our website for statistical and market research purposes. With the help of Facebook Pixel, we can recognize, for example, whether you have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook Ad and how you have interacted with our website (so-called “Conversion”). With the help of Facebook Pixel, we can also assess you and other visitors to our website as to your placement in a target group for Facebook Ads. Therefore, we use Facebook Pixel to improve our contact with customers on Facebook because Facebook Ads that are switched on by us are only displayed to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our offers or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are determined from the websites visited, so-called. “Custom Audiences via websites”). We also want to make sure that our Facebook Ads are in your interest and not annoying.

Various event and conversion data is collected on our website, e.g. which subpages you visit or how you interact with our website. Thus, we evaluate your activity on our website and use this analysis for personalized advertising.

If you log in to Facebook or if you are logged in to Facebook when visiting our website, the visit to our website is noted in your Facebook profile. The data is, however, converted (“hashed”) directly into chains of numbers when collected. This data therefore does not allow us to draw any conclusions about you. We would like to point out, however, that this data is also stored and processed by Facebook. Facebook may use this information for its own market research and advertising purposes. We have no influence on that.

Facebook is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. This will ensure that a level of protection comparable to European data protection law is observed ( The Facebook Data Policy applies to data processing by Facebook. It contains general information concerning the placement of Facebook Ads: For more information about Facebook Pixel and how it works, visit the help section of Facebook:

To set which types of ads you see within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the usage-based advertising settings: The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are adapted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices. You can find general information from Facebook on how to use cookies here:

Sie können der Erfassung durch das Facebook-Pixel und der Verwendung Ihrer Daten zur Darstellung von Facebook-Ads verhindern und Ihre Einwilligung hierzu widerrufen. Klicken Sie dafür bitte hier: Facebook-Pixel deaktivieren

You can also prevent the collection of data by Facebook Pixel and the use of your data for Facebook Ad. Furthermore, you may revoke your consent to this. Please click here: Disable Facebook Pixel

If you disable Facebook Pixel, an “opt-out” cookie will be saved on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must click the link again. In addition, this opt-out only works within the browser you are currently using and only for our website. To decline these and other interest-based ads, you can also visit the following websites:;

16. Use of Outbrain

We use the Outbrain Pixel on our website. To this end, we asked you for your consent during your first visit to our website, so that the legal basis for the associated data processing is your consent (Article 6, Para. 1, lit. a GDPR). To help you understand what data processing is associated with Outbrain Pixel, here’s how Outbrain generates personalized advertising.

16.1 Personalized advertising in the Outbrain Widget

Outbrain provides the so-called Outbrain Widget to “Partner Websites”, in which personalized ads are shown to you. The use of an Outbrain widget can be recognized by the text referring to Outbrain (e.g. “Recommended by Outbrain”, “Outbrain” next to the recommendations). For example, if you visit the website of an online newspaper, you may see an ad in the Outbrain widget.

Outbrain Inc., 39 West 13th Street, 3rd floor, New York, NY 10011, is responsible for data protection matters related to this widget. In other words, Outbrain decides which data is processed and for what purpose and therefore is your direct contact. The companies whose ads appear in the Outbrain widget do not have access to this data and do not decide how and what data is collected.

Outbrain uses the Outbrain widget to collect some information to show you personalized online advertising. If you visit a website that incorporates this Outbrain widget, your device will be assigned a unique user ID (Unique User Identifier; UUID). In addition, Outbrain will catalog and analyze the content you consume on the particular website. The recommendations are based on: (i) browsing history; (ii) similar web surfing patterns of other users; (ii) recommendations that are popular with Outbrain’s target audience; (iv) a degree of randomness; and (v) target requirements provided or required by us or other Outbrain customers. Each of your devices receives its own UUID. Several devices therefore have multiple UUIDs. By assigning a UUID, Outbrain can combine the visited pages and the clicks on Outbrain’s recommendations from that UUID. All this serves the purpose of providing interesting recommendations.

Furthermore, Outbrain also collects the following information: (i) IP address (will be anonymized to industry standards); (ii) User Agent Data: Device type (e.g. iPhone), browser type (e.g. Chrome), operating system (e.g. iOS); (iii) the pages visited; (iv) the time of the visit; and (v) the referring URLs and other information typically transmitted during HTTP requests. Through this statistical information, Outbrain obtains information about how many users have visited a particular page on partner websites on which the Outbrain widget is installed, how long each user stayed on the page, the type of content on the page that the user clicked on, and how the user behaved on the page in general. This information is personal information only when connected to a UUID. Additional information on data processing by Outbrain can be found here: You can also opt-out and prevent data processing there. You can also – as with any widget – retrieve your profile and opt-out:

16.2 Outbrain Pixel

We only use Outbrain Pixel on our website. This means that you will not see personalized advertisements from Outbrain on our website and the data processing that was just described does not occur. However, Outbrain Pixel does collect some information about you. We are responsible for this data processing and Outbrain will act on our behalf.

Therefore, we would like to inform you about this in detail:
If we finance an Outbrain ad and you click on this ad, you will be redirected to our website. Outbrain Pixel then determines if your device has an Outbrain unique user ID. If there is a unique user ID associated with this device, we may re-address your unique user ID or find out the total number of unique user IDs that have reached our website. Furthermore, we use Outbrain Pixel to see which areas of the website were visited with the unique user ID. No identifiable personal information will be collected, transmitted or stored.

If you do not have an Outbrain unique user ID, Outbrain Pixel will not capture any data at all.
This data processing helps us to understand how our website is used and whether our ads contribute to our approach to our customers. All data points, such as page views and clicks associated with a unique user ID, are stored for 13 months and then deleted. For example, if unique user ID 123 read an article on December 31, 2017, that article will no longer be part of the unique user ID 123 profile on February 1, 2018.
You can find additional information on data processing by Outbrain here:

If you have prevented the processing of data by the Outbrain widget, Outbrain Pixel will not automatically collect data because your device has no unique user ID. Finally, you have the option of preventing the setting of cookies by the use of corresponding settings in your browser. You can also disable preference-based advertising using the preference manager that is available here:
