Additional conditions for Verimi Pay
If you choose to use Verimi Pay, the notices set forth in this section will apply additionally to the other privacy statements:
Processing purposes and legal bases
In order to use Verimi Pay, you give us a direct debit mandate relating to your bank account to collect payments. For this purpose we require information on your bank details and your verified identity data (title, first and last name, name at birth, pseudonym, date of birth, place of birth, nationality, residential address, type of ID document, date of issue, issuing authority, document number and expiry date). We also ask if you are a politically exposed person. If this information is not yet stored in your Verimi account, we will ask you to provide this information.
When using Verimi Pay, we process your personalized security features required to authorize the transaction. In addition, we collect and store the payment and transaction data relating to the transac-tions you have performed. We shall notify this to the credit institution commissioned by us to manage the trust account for payments.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 subsection 1 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR since the pro-cessing is necessary for the use of Verimi Pay within the framework of the user contract existing be-tween you and us.
To enable you to use Verimi Pay, we perform a credit check. For this purpose, we transfer your per-sonal data (first and last name, title, gender, date and place of birth, nationality, residential address) to SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden, Germany and in return receive personal data from SCHUFA relating to your creditworthiness (score points and score group). If, in the event of a breach of contract on your part, a claim is asserted, we will notify SCHUFA of your personal data relating to the respective transaction (title, first and last name, residential address, amount, date, bank details). The legal bases for these transfers are Art. 6 subsection 1 para. 1 lit. b) and lit. f) GDPR. Transfers based on Art. 6 subsection 1 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR may only take place insofar as this is nec-essary to safeguard the legitimate interests of Verimi GmbH or third parties and does not overweight the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the person affected.
SCHUFA processes the data received and also uses it for the purpose of scoring and in order to pro-vide its contractual partners in the European Economic Area and in Switzerland as well as other third countries (if a European Commission adequacy decision exists) with information for the assessment of the creditworthiness of natural persons, among other things. Further information on the activities of SCHUFA can be found in the SCHUFA Information Sheet pursuant to Art. 14 DS-GVO or can be viewed online at www.schufa.de/datenschutz.
