In addition, the user or customer – insofar as GM uses his data within a framework as permitted by law for example for postal marketing measures - can also object to this use.

  25. Credit and identity check

  26. Credit risks exist within the scope of the financing possibilities offered by GM, which render it necessary that GM will reinsure itself with regard to the solvency of its customers and obtain credit rating information. GM will for this purpose send the customer’s data, if applicable still before conclusion of the contract, for the purpose of the credit check to various credit agencies of its choice, such as e.g.:

    - Creditsafe Deutschland GmbH
    Schreiberhauer Straße 30
    10317 Berlin

    - CEG Creditreform Boniversum GmbH
    Hellerbergstraße 11
    D-41460 Neuss

    - Schufa Holding AG
    Kormoranweg 5
    65201 Wiesbaden

    - Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen
    GmbH & Co.KG
    Gasstraße 18
    22761 Hamburg

    - Infoscore Consumer Data GmbH
    Department of Data protection
    Rheinstraße 99
    76532 Baden-Baden

    and request these for information and creditworthiness information based on mathematical-statistical procedures (score value) insofar as this is necessary in order to safeguard justified interests of GM and the concerns of the future customer, which are worthy of protection, are not impaired. Information about conduct of the customer that is not as per contract (e.g. with credit card abuse) will, if applicable, also be sent. The credit agencies shall store the data sent to you in order to be able to provide the companies affiliated with them information for the assessment of the creditworthiness of the customer, shall only make these data available to their contractual partners, insofar as these credibly present a justified interest in the data transmission; the data will be exclusively used for this purpose.

    The customer can, as a rule, receive information himself from the aforementioned credit agencies about the data stored with regard to his person.

    GM shall, moreover, send the data of the customer before conclusion of the contract for the purpose of the identity check to the credit agency (agencies) selected by it, following which the credit agency (agencies) determine the degree of correspondence of the personal details stored in their company with the data collected by the customer from GM in terms of percentages. Based on the correspondence rates determined by the credit agencies GM can accordingly recognise whether a person is stored under the address provided by him in the data stocks of the respective credit agency (agencies) and is more than 18 years old.

    A further exchange of data or a transmission of deviating addresses as well as a storage of the customer’s data in the data stocks of the respective credit agency do not take place.

    It is solely stored for the purpose of proof of the fact of the check at the credit agency (agencies) involved. More detailed information is available under the aforementioned Internet addresses.
