Provision of Paid Services

Our payment facilities include PayPal. Paypal is an online payment service provider that handles payments via PayPal accounts. PayPal makes it possible to initiate payments to third parties and to receive payments. PayPal also takes on a trustee role, offering buyer protection services.

The European PayPal operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. & Cie.S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If you choose PayPal as a payment option, data is automatically transmitted to PayPal. By choosing this payment option, you consent to the transfer of personal data required for the transfer of payment. The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually the name, e-mail address, IP address or other data required for payment processing. For the execution of the purchase contract, among other things, such personal data is necessary in connection with the order.

The purpose of the transmission of such data is the processing of payments and fraud prevention, which is carried out by PayPal. Personal data will be transmitted in particular if there is a legitimate interest in the transmission, for example to credit reporting agencies. This transfer is used for identity and credit checks. PayPal may also share personal information with affiliates, service providers, and subcontractors as necessary to fulfill their contractual obligations, or when such data is to be processed on behalf of them. The data subject has the option to revoke the consent regarding the handling of personal data by PayPal. A revocation does not affect personal data, which must be processed, used and/or transmitted for the contractual payment processing. PayPal’s applicable privacy policy is available at:
