Insofar as we provide delivery before receiving payment, we reserve the right to obtain from the following company/companies a credit report compiled on the basis of mathematical/statistical procedures, to safeguard our legitimate interests: 

• BillPay GmbH, Zinnowitzer Str. 1, 10115 Berlin, (https://www.billpay.de)

To this end, we send the personal data that is required to conduct a credit check and make use of the information revealed by the credit check regarding the statistical probability of payment default. The credit report may include probability values (scores) that are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognised mathematical/statistical procedures. This involves using a variety of characteristics to infer the CUSTOMER’s future default risk, such as income, address data, job, family status and payment history. The result is expressed in the form of a numerical value (a score). The information thus received forms the basis of our decision to justify, fulfil or end the contractual relationship. Such information does not, however, influence the range of payment options that can be chosen.
