Using the personal data while selecting Klarna as the payment method
If you decide on Klarna’s payment services, Klarna bill and Klarna instalment purchase, as payment options,
you have consented to the fact that we collect the following personal data necessary for processing the
purchase on account and an identity and credit assessment and transfer it to Klarna; this data includes first
and last name, address, date of birth, sex, email address, IP address, telephone number as well as the data
necessary for processing the purchase on account, which is in connection with the order, such as the number
of items, item number, invoice amount and taxes in percent. This data is transferred so that Klarna can
generate an invoice for processing your purchase with the invoice processing desired by you and conduct an
identity and credit assessment. Klarna thus has an authorised interest in the transfer of the personal data of
the buyer in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and requires it to obtain information from credit
reporting agencies for purposes of the identity and credit assessment. The credit reporting agencies in
Germany are listed below:
- Schufa Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65203 Wiesbaden
- Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, PO Box 5001 66, 22701 Hamburg
- Creditreform Bremen Seddig KG, Contrescarpe 17, 28203 Bremen
- infoscore Consumer Data GmbH, Rheinstraße 99, 76532 Baden-Baden
Within the scope of the decision about the substantiation, execution or termination of the contractual
relationship, Klarna, apart from an address check, also collects and uses information regarding the current
payment history of the buyer as well as probability values regarding this behaviour
in future. These score values are calculated by Klarna on the basis of a scientifically accepted mathematical
and statistical method. Klarna will also use your address data among other things for this. If this calculation
indicates that your credit-worthiness is not ensured, Klarna shall inform you about this immediately.
Revocation of the use of personal data as against Klarna
1. You can always revoke your consent to the use of personal data as against Klarna. However, if necessary,
Klarna continues to remain authorised to process, use and transfer the personal data insofar as this is
necessary for the contractual payment processing by Klarna’s services, is stipulated legally, or demanded by
a court or an authority.
2. You can of course receive information at all times about the personal data saved by Klarna. The Federal
Data Protection Act guarantees this right. If you as a buyer want this or want to notify changes in the saved
data to Klarna, you can write to email@example.com.
