In this connection, the data might be forwarded to third parties acting on our behalf as contract data processors within the meaning of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Commerce21 will not use customer data for advertising, market/opinion research purposes without their consent.

Liability for links

Our website contains links to external websites operated by third parties over whose content we have no control. We can therefore assume no liability for such third-party content. The respective provider or operator of the website is always responsible for the content of such linked sites. Linked websites are checked for possible legal infringements at the time that the link is created. No illegal content was identifiable at the time that the link was created. Permanent checking of the contents of linked websites is however unreasonable without firm suspicion of any legal infringement. On becoming aware of any such legal infringement, we will remove such links immediately.

Use of Facebook plug-ins

This website uses plug-ins from the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States ("Facebook"). If you visit pages on our website that contain this type of plug-in, a connection with the Facebook servers will be established in order to display the plug-in on the website in your browser. Information about which of our pages you have visited is then transmitted to the Facebook server. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking on the "Like" buttons or posting a comment) this information will also be assigned to your Facebook account. The only way in which you can prevent this is by logging out before using the plug-in. For more information about the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this respect and options for protecting your privacy, please consult Facebook's data privacy policy.

Purchases on account

When you register to make payments on account, paymorrow or partner companies engaged by paymorrow will submit your address data to credit agencies for creditworthiness and credit checks, in order to assess the liability risk and to obtain a credit rating. This will be carried out within the scope permitted by law and taking into account your legitimate interests in your details not being transmitted or used. We obtain information on your past payment behavior from the credit agencies listed below, which store data for the provision of information:

For the purposes of their own credit checks, paymorrow or partner companies engaged by paymorrow may retrieve credit information based on mathematical and statistical techniques from the above agencies. For such cases, you hereby agree to the disclosure of your first and last names, street, house number, zip code, town/city, date of birth and telephone number to the above-mentioned agencies. paymorrow shall ensure, in this connection, that both its partner companies and the above-mentioned agencies process and/or use the data solely for the purpose for which it is intended. All credit checks are carried out in order to eliminate potential payment difficulties. The exchange of data between paymorrow, partner companies engaged by paymorrow and other business information services protects online trading against losses, which could affect sales prices in the long term. Checking customer data for these purposes is therefore also of benefit to you as the end customer.

Purchases on account – identity check

If you make purchases on account via paymorrow GmbH, your personal data will be transmitted to SCHUFA (SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden, Germany) for identity-checking purposes, and SCHUFA will then notify paymorrow GmbH of the degree of concordance (in percentage terms) of the personal details stored by it with the personal details supplied by you. SCHUFA will also provide paymorrow GmbH with details of any identity check supported by ID documentation that it or another contract partner has carried out in the past. paymorrow GmbH can therefore use the concordance rates transmitted to identify whether a person is stored in SCHUFA's database under the address provided by that person. No further exchanges of data are carried out and no different addresses are transmitted. Furthermore, your data will not be stored in the SCHUFA database. For legal documentation reasons, only the fact that your address was checked by SCHUFA will be recorded.
