For this purpose, Ratepay transmits the personal data required for a credit check to a credit agency and uses the information received about the statistical probability of a payment default for a weighed decision about the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship. An overview of credit agencies that Ratepay uses can be found at: https://www.ratepay.com/legal-payment-creditagencies/. The credit report may contain 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 are taken into account in accordance with the statutory provisions. The data processing serves the purpose of credit assessment for a contract initiation. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO for our overriding legitimate interest in protection against payment default when Ratepay makes advance payments.
You have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data relating to you based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO for reasons arising from your particular situation by notifying us or Ratepay. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract with the payment method requested by you. Failure to provide it will result in the contract not being concluded with the payment method you have chosen.
For more information on the payment methods and data processing when using the payment service, please refer to the associated privacy policy at https://www.ratepay.com/legal-payment-terms/ and https://www.ratepay.com/legal-payment-dataprivacy/.

Analysis      Advertising tracking       Communication      

Use of Google Analytics 4
We use the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; "Google") on our website.
The data processing serves the purpose of analyzing this website and its visitors as well as for marketing and advertising purposes. To this end, Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. 
In this context, the following information may be collected, among others: IP address, date and time of page view, click path, information about the browser you are using and the device you are using (device), pages visited, referrer URL (website from which you accessed our website), location data, purchase activity. Your data may be linked by Google to other data, such as your search history, your personal accounts, your usage data from other devices, and any other data Google may have about you.
 
Your IP address will first be truncated by us on our own servers. Google thus only receives pseudonymised data.

Google uses technologies such as cookies, web storage in the browser and tracking pixels that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The use of cookies or similar technologies takes place with your consent on the basis of § 25 para. 1 p. 1 TDDDG in conjunction with.

The processing of your personal data is carried out with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

We also use the Google Signals service in this context. Google Signals enables cross-device tracking. Hence, your data can be analysed across devices if you have enabeled "personalised advertising" in your account settings and your end devices are linked to your Google account. This makes it possible to identify which device is searching for products and then return to complete purchases on another device, such as a tablet.The cross-device reports created in this context contain only aggregated data. We therefore only receive statistics generated on the basis of Google Signals. To prevent Google Signals from collecting and storing data across devices, you can deactivate the "personalised advertising" function in your Google Account settings. For more information, please visit https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de. For more information on data processing and data protection for Google Signals, please visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=en.

Use of Meta Pixel
We use Meta Pixel from Meta Platforms Ireland Limited (4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland; "Meta") on our website.
Meta and we are jointly responsible for the collection of your data and the transfer of this data to Meta when the service is integrated. The basis for this is an agreement between us and Meta on the joint processing of personal data, in which the respective responsibilities are defined. The agreement is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/legal/terms/businesstools. According to this agreement, we are responsible in particular for the fulfilment of the information obligations in accordance with Arts 13 and 14 GDPR, for compliance with the security requirements of Art. 32 GDPR with regard to the correct technical implementation and configuration of the service, and for compliance with the obligations in accordance with Arts 33 and 34 GDPR, insofar as a violation of the protection of personal data affects our obligations under the agreement on joint processing. Meta is responsible for enabling the rights of the data subject in accordance with Arts 15-20 GDPR, for complying with the security requirements of Art. 32 GDPR with regard to the security of the service, and for complying with the obligations of Arts 33 and 34 GDPR, insofar as a breach of personal data protection concerns Meta's obligations under the joint processing agreement.
The application serves to address the visitor to the website with interest-related advertising on the social networks Facebook and Instagram. We have implemented Meta’s remarketing tag on our website for this purpose. This tag sets up a direct connection to Meta’s servers when you visit our website. This informs the Meta server which of our web pages you have visited. Meta assigns this information to your personal Facebook and/or Instagram user account. When you visit the social networks Facebook or Instagram, you will then be shown personalised, interest-related ads.
The application also serves the purpose of creating conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the total number of users who have clicked our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag as well as what actions are taken after being redirected to this website. However, they do not receive any information which could be used to personally identify users.
Your data may be transmitted to the USA. For the USA, there is an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF). Meta has certified itself in accordance with the TADPF and has thus undertaken to comply with European data protection principles.

Use of Google Ads conversion tracking
Our website uses the online marketing program "Google Ads", including conversion tracking (evaluation of user actions). Google conversion tracking is a service operated by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; "Google").
If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. Every Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. It is therefore not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of Ads customers.
The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which could be used to personally identify users.

Plug-ins

Use of the Google Tag Manager
Our website uses the Google Tag Manager from Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; "Google"). This application manages JavaScript tags and HTML tags which are used in particular to implement tracking and analysis tools. The data processing serves to facilitate the needs-based design and optimisation of our website. The Google Tag Manager itself neither stores cookies nor processes personal data. It does, however, enable the triggering of further tags which may collect and process personal data. You can find more detailed information on the terms and conditions of use and data protection at https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

 
Use of social plug-ins
Our website uses social network plug-ins. The integration of social plug-ins and the data processing associated with this serves the purpose of optimising the advertising for our products.
The integration of social plug-ins involves a connection between your computer and the servers of the service provider of the social network which then instructs your web browser to display the plug-in on that web page, provided you have expressly consented to this. In this process, both your IP address as well as the information on which web pages you have visited will be transmitted to the provider’s servers. This happens regardless of whether you are registered with or logged into the social network. The information is transferred even if users are not registered or logged in. Should you be connected simultaneously with one or more of your social network accounts, the collected information may also be assigned to your corresponding profiles. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. by pressing the appropriate button), this information will also be assigned to your user account. You can therefore prevent this assignment by logging yourself out before visiting our website and before activating the button for your social media accounts.
The use of cookies or comparable technologies is carried out with your consent on the basis of Art. 25 para. 1 p. 1 TDDDG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The processing of your personal data is carried out with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal.
The following social networks are integrated in our website through social plug-ins. You can find more detailed information on the scope and purpose of collection and use of the data and your associated rights and options for protecting your privacy in the provider’s privacy policy via the link.

Use of social plug-ins via “Shariff”
Our website uses social network plug-ins. We use data protection-compliant “Shariff” buttons to ensure that you retain control over your data.No connection is made to the social network servers and no data submitted without your explicit consent. “Shariff” was developed by specialists at the computer magazine c't. It enables more personal privacy in the network and replaces the usual social network "share" buttons. You can find more information on the Shariff project here https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html.
When you click the buttons a pop-up window appears, allowing you to log on with the relevant provider using your data. It is only after you actively login that a direct connection to the social network is set up. By logging in, you give your permission for the transfer of your data to the respective social media provider. At this time, information such as your IP address and which websites you have visited is transmitted. Should you be connected simultaneously with one or more of your social network accounts, the information collected is also assigned to your corresponding profiles. Therefore, you can only prevent this assignment by logging yourself out before visiting our website and before activating the button for your social media accounts.

Use of social plug-ins via the “2-click solution” 
Our website uses social network plug-ins via the “2-click solution”. No connection is made to the social network servers and no data submitted without your explicit consent.Standard integration of plug-ins set up a connection between your computer and the provider’s servers when you call up pages on our website which contain such a plugin, allowing the plug-in to be shown on the web page by a notice sent to your browser. Both your IP address and the fact that you have visited our web pages are transmitted to the provider’s servers. This happens regardless of whether you are registered with or logged into the social network. The information is transferred even if users are not registered or logged in. If you are also logged into the social network, this information is also assigned to your user profile. When you use plug-in functions (e.g. activate the button) this information is also assigned to your user account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in. To ensure that you retain control over your data we have decided to initially deactivate the corresponding button. This is shown by the greyed-out button. No connection is made to the social network servers and no data submitted without your explicit consent - in the form of activation of the button.Only when you activate the button does it become active (highlighted) and set up a direct connection to the social network’s servers.By logging in, you give your permission for the transfer of your data to the respective social media provider. At this time, information such as your IP address and which websites you have visited is transmitted. Should you be connected simultaneously with one or more of your social network accounts, the information collected is also assigned to your corresponding profiles. Therefore, you can only prevent this assignment by logging yourself out before visiting our website and before activating the button for your social media accounts.
The social networks listed below are integrated with the “2-click function”. You can find more detailed information on the scope and purpose of collection and use of the data, your associated rights and options for protecting your privacy in the provider’s privacy policy via the link.
