In this case, Google is obliged to maintain the standards and regulations of the Europeandata protection regulations. For more information, see the following link to the article:

We have activated IP anonymisation on this website (anonymizeIp). Google will truncate your IP address beforehand within the member states of the European Union or in other contractual states of the agreement concerning the European Economic Area. Only in some exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to Google servers in the USA and truncated there. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate use of the website by you, compile reports about website activities, and provide additional services connected with use of the website and the Internet to us.

By using the remarketing function, we are able to present users of our website with advertisements based on their interests on other websites within the Google display network (on Google itself, known as “Google Ads” or on other websites). This analyses interaction with the user on our website, e.g. which services the user was interested in to be able to display targeted advertising to the user on other pages, even after using our website. In this case, Google stores a number in the browser of users that visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. Using this number, which is referred to as a “cookie”, the visits of these users are recorded. This number is used for unique identification of a web browser on a certain computer and not for identification of a person, since personal data are not saved. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR.

7. Creditworthiness and transfer to credit reference agencies


Scheppach GmbH basically grants its customers the option to purchase our goods using unsecured payment methods (by invoice).

Companies that basically grant their customers unsecured payment methods have a legitimate interest in protecting themselves as well as possible before payment failures occur.

Among other aspects, this takes place by checking the creditworthiness of the customer before granting the option to take advantage of unsecured payment methods.

Within the scope of this check, Scheppach GmbH shall be entitled to use negative credit information that it has received/collected itself from the respective customer or in cooperation with an external credit reference agency.

We work together with the following credit reference: Verband der Vereine Creditreform e.V.

For the purpose of accessing credit information, the following data are transmitted to the external credit reference agency: Forename, surname, postal address, date of birth (if available).

In case of creditworthiness information, this involves information about publicly available payment claims and such information that could result in an immediate risk of a failure to pay (e.g. bankruptcy, debtor counselling, deferred payment based on inability to pay).

Scheppach GmbH shall furthermore be entitled to use information involving extremely atypical ordering processes (e.g. simultaneously ordering a number of goods to the same address while using a variety of user accounts). This is intended to prevent failed payments and protect our customers against abuse of their accounts and identities.

Within the scope of a credit check, we may use automated processes to decide whether the unsecured payment method (payment by invoice) is granted to you. In this way, transfer of a negative credit check by a credit reference agency or calculation of an insufficient score within the scope of "internal scoring" will result in rejection of the desired payment method.

You may assert your right with us that we complete a manual check of the automated decision.

You also have the right to express your own standpoint and the right to dispute the decision.

We basically have a legitimate interest in performing a credit check if you select an unsecured payment method (payment by invoice).

Processing your data within the scope of the credit check takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) of the GDPR and Art. 6 Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR.
