Data Privacy Statement

Our data protection regulations are based on both the TMG (German Teleservices Act) and the BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act).

§ 1 Use of your data

You know that we use the personal data compiled in the course of the order process for fulfilling the order and – as far as necessary – also pass them on the third parties, such as deliverers.

We only give as much of your personal data needed for order fulfillment to third parties as demanded by order fulfillment or if there a legal obligation to pass on such data.

We reserve the right to review your creditworthiness by transferring data on the application, acceptance and termination of this contract to SCHUFA HOLDING AG, Kormoranweg 5 in 65201 Wiesbaden or other credit agencies and obtain information on you from SCHUFA or the respective credit agency insofar as this is permissible after weighing our interest against your interest in the exclusion of such transfer.

Furthermore, we shall also transfer to SCHUFA or the respective credit agency, after due consideration of all interests involved, data related to non-contractual behavior, such as improper use of a card.

The credit agencies we employ only make personal data available if a justified interest in them was credibly presented in the specific case. They make address data known for the purpose of identifying debtors. When providing information, the respective credit agency can additionally provide its contractual partners with a probability value calculated from their data pool for assessing the credit risk (so-called score procedure).

What is more, we use and process your personal data for our own marketing purposes, such as market research over the telephone, if you grant us your consent by clicking the appropriate button. If you grant us your consent to send further information, you also agree that we can pass on your address to our partner companies for the purpose of postal advertising. Moreover, you can revoke your consent without adhering to a particular form (for example, by calling +49 (0) 541/91312-0 or by sending an e-mail to info@wichmann-os.de) at any time.

You can object to the use and processing of your data for marketing purposes at any time by sending an e-mail to: info@wichmann-os.de.

Upon request, we shall provide you free of charge with information on the data we keep regarding your person in accordance with § 34 of the Federal Data Protection Act. Furthermore, you have the right to demand at any time that we correct, delete or block your personal data. However, we shall only delete the data if the order process is fully completed.
