Data will only be given to the financial institution responsible for credit assessment for the purpose of fulfilling the contract, insofar as the checking of financing applications is required. The documents and information required for this purpose are passed on to the financial institution or financial partner commissioned for the credit check. Your personal data will be processed exclusively within the EU, unless otherwise stated below.

You have the right to demand from us that personal data concerning you be deleted immediately. We are obliged to delete it immediately, in particular if one of the following reasons applies: Your personal data is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed. You revoke the consent on which the processing of your data was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing of this data. Your data has been processed unlawfully. The right to deletion does not apply insofar as your personal data is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of our legal claims.
2.4 Right to limit processing of personal data
You have the right to demand that we limit the processing of your personal data if the following conditions are met: you dispute the accuracy of the data and we therefore verify its accuracy; if the processing is unlawful; you refuse to delete the data; and, instead of limiting the processing of data, we request that the no-longer required data, which you however still need to assert, exercise, or defend your legal rights regarding the processing of your data; and it is not determined whether our legitimate grounds outweigh your own.
2.5 Right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided us with in a structured, commonplace and machine-readable format and you have the right to transfer this data to another responsible party without our hindrance, provided that the processing is based on consent or on a contract and that the processing is carried out by us using automated procedures.
