Further information on data protection
Data processing by third parties
If PM-International passes on data to service providers (such as parcel service providers, payment service providers, etc.) in the context of sales management, PM-International concludes order processing contracts in each case. As a result, sales partners are not only bound to data protection by law, but also by contract with PM-International.
Personal and transaction-related data is transferred in accordance with the “EU standard contractual clauses” defined by the EU Commission.
Data protection for goods orders, personal user profiles
When ordering goods, PM-International collects personal data from customers in order to process and fulfill the order. The following customer data is collected, stored and used: Name, address, e-mail address, date of birth, telephone number, payment information and, in the case of payment by direct debit, the account details information and, if applicable, further bank details for credit card payments. The information you provide here is used exclusively to simplify your order process, for administrative purposes and for internal analysis. The legal basis for this processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR and is carried out for the purpose of fulfilling a contract concluded with you or for carrying out necessary, pre-contractual measures that are carried out at your request.
We obtain information to verify your address (check for deliverability) from Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, Hellersbergstr. 11, 41460 Neuss .
For this purpose, we transmit the necessary data (your full name, your address and, if applicable, your date of birth) to the aforementioned company. In future, this company will also use this data for the purposes of address verification or identity checks with other companies and for corresponding scoring applications. Scoring calculates probability values for certain future behavior based on mathematical-statistical procedures and uses the corresponding data for this purpose.
We also transmit data to Creditreform Boniversum GmbH for credit checks.
Creditreform Boniversum GmbH is a consumer credit agency. It operates a database in which creditworthiness information about private individuals is stored. On this basis, Creditreform issues credit reports to its customers. Customers include, for example, credit institutions, leasing companies, insurance companies, telecommunications companies, receivables management companies, mail order, wholesale and retail companies and other companies that supply goods or services. In accordance with legal requirements, some of the data in the information database is also used to supply other company databases, including for address trading purposes.
In the Creditreform Boniversum GmbH database, information is stored in particular about the name, address, date of birth, e-mail address if applicable, payment history and ownership structure of persons. The purpose of processing the stored data is to provide information on the creditworthiness of the person in question. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) EU GDPR (EU) 2016-679, according to which information about this data may only be provided if a customer can credibly demonstrate a legitimate interest in knowing this information. If data is transferred to countries outside the EU, this is done on the basis of the so-called “standard contractual clauses.
The data is stored for as long as knowledge of it is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was stored. As a rule, knowledge is required for an initial storage period of three years. After expiry, it is checked whether storage is still necessary, otherwise the data is deleted to the day. If a matter is settled, the data is deleted to the day three years after settlement. Entries in the debtor register are deleted to the day in accordance with Section 882e ZPO after three years from the date of the entry order.
Legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR (EU) 2016-679 may be: credit decision, business initiation, investment relationships, claims, credit assessment, enforcement information.

If your data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.
If you have given your consent to the processing of the data stored by Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. The revocation does not affect the legality of the processing of your data carried out on the basis of your consent prior to any revocation.
If you have any objections, requests or complaints regarding data protection, you can contact the data protection officer of Creditreform Boniversum GmbH at any time. He will help you quickly and confidentially in all matters relating to data protection.

In order to describe your creditworthiness, Creditreform calculates a score for your data. The score value includes data on age and gender, address data and, in some cases, payment experience data. This data is included in the score calculation with different weightings. Creditreform customers use the score values as an aid when making their own credit decisions.
Right of objection:
The data stored by Creditreform Boniversum GmbH is processed for compelling legitimate reasons of creditor and credit protection, which regularly outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or serve to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You can only object to the processing of your data for reasons that arise from your particular situation and must be proven. If such special reasons can be proven, the data will no longer be processed. If you object to the processing of your data for advertising and marketing purposes, the data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

The data of the individual orders remain accessible in the password-protected user account of this website for the respective customer, in particular to enable follow-up orders of the products already purchased in the ordering system in a simple manner. The customer can view and change the inventory data stored for his customer account as well as the selected password at any time on this website in his user account – there in the “My data” section.
A customer can have their customer account and all associated data deleted at any time by sending a message by post, telephone or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The SSL (Secure Socket Layer) security software used by PM-International is currently one of the best technologies available.
When paying for the respective service, you have the option of choosing between various payment options. With each option, your payment details are encrypted for transmission. This means you can be sure that your data cannot be read by a third party. This transmission is therefore much more secure than transmitting your personal data over the phone.
More than 10,000 customers have already made online purchases from PM-International in Germany. This means that you do not need to worry about your security when using the PM-International website. The technology used by PM-International does everything possible to protect your data.
For PM-International, security is not just about protecting your data on the payment method you choose. PM-International will make every effort to ensure that your order documents, goods or other documents reach you exactly at the time we have sent them to you.
