payolution sends the bank details you have provided (in particular bank sort code and account number) to SCHUFA Holding AG in order to conduct an account number review. Based on this data, SCHUFA initially reviews whether the bank details you have provided are plausible. SCHUFA examines whether data used for this review are already on-hand in its database and then sends the results of the review to payolution. There is no further exchange of data within the scope of the account number review process such as the disclosure of credit information or the disclosure of differing bank details or storing you data in the SCHUFA database. The fact that a review of your bank details was conducted is stored at SCHUFA solely for documentation purposes.
payolution is also authorised to store, process, use and transfer data concerning any conduct that violates the contract (e.g. undisputed open claims) to the credit bureaus referred to above.
- The provisions of the German Civil Code concerning financial assistance between enterprises and consumers legally oblige us from the outset to examine your credit standing.
