Privacy Policy

Your personal data (Data) are processed in the context of the agreement entered into between you and us on the use of the services of VERIMI GmbH, including the use of our website and our app. These Data include, for example, your name, your address, your email address and further information about you. In terms of this Confirmation, ‘processing’ is a general term that encompasses any form of dealing with Data.

The following provides you with information on the processing of your Data in the context of VERIMI’s use of these. Where the following refers to provisions contained in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), these provisions shall apply (just like the duty to state the legal basis) as of 25 May 2018. Irrespective thereof, the other confirmations are already effective provided not expressly stated otherwise.

Purposes and legal basis for our processing of Data

In order to register with us, you may use either our website or our app or you may consent to the transfer of Data to us by third parties vis-a-vis that third party. You may not use VERIMI without submitting the information that is set out as mandatory at registration. The legal basis for the processing of this Data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point (b) GDPR, since such processing is necessary for the performance of the agreement entered into between you and us.

You are then able to provide further Data voluntarily or to permit third parties to transfer these to us and to store these with us for use in the context of using our services, in particular where you provide consent to the transfer of such Data to third parties for the purpose of registering with third parties or the administration of your legal relationship to these third parties. The legal basis for the processing of such Data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point (a) GDPR.

An essential, but similarly voluntary, function of VERIMI is that you may verify yourself and your Data through VERIMI and that you may use your Data in relation to third parties. The legal basis for the processing of such Data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point (a) GDPR.

In the context of our agreement with you, we also process Data in order to show you use that has already taken place in the recent past and to make corresponding suggestions for further use, including the services of partners. The legal basis for the processing of such Data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point (b) GDPR, since such processing is necessary for the performance of the agreement entered into between you and us.

We also process Data in order to send you newsletter emails on the basis of any consent to this that you may have provided. The legal basis for the processing of such Data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point (a) GDPR.

Finally, we also process Data in your and our interest in order to ensure the integrity, trustworthiness and availability of the data processing systems, i.e. in particular the security and availability of your Data with VERIMI. It is not possible to make use of our website and our app without the processing of Data for this purpose. The legal basis for the processing of such Data is Art. 6 paragraph 1 no. 1 point (f) GDPR; our legitimate interest is the maintenance and secure provision of our services.

No data transfer outside of the EU

The Data collected by us will be stored exclusively on servers located in the European Union. No transfer of Data to businesses outside of the European Union will take place without your express consent. This also applies to any service providers used by us for data processing.

Recipients of Data

We will transfer or receive your Data on the basis of our User Agreement with you or on the basis of your consent only by way of a secure connection to the recipients selected by you or from these.

In order for us to offer to you all of the functions of VERIMI, we also make use of selected service providers who process data upon our commissioning and on our behalf. In doing so, we only provide data in the context of legally-permissible processing to service providers who have been carefully selected and commissioned in writing. These shall receive only those Data that are required for them to perform their tasks. These include the following categories of subcontractors: identification service providers, software developers, server hosting providers, newsletter senders, customer support, web analysis services.

Duration of data storage

We store your Data for the duration of the existence of your VERIMI account. However, you may cancel or also lock your VERIMI account at any time. We will then delete your Data unless we are obliged at law to continue to store or maintain these. Where Data are still required for the settlement of outstanding transactions, deletion will take place at the earliest once these transactions have been settled.

Your use of VERIMI through third parties

Through our website, you may be access third parties where you may also use VERIMI and our functions. In using these third-party services, the third party will enter into its own agreement with you and may potentially obtain consent from you to the use of your Data. The Data provided at registration and in the use of these third-party services will be processed by the third party and shall only be provided to us on the basis of any consent provided by you to that third party.
