Our Web servers automatically collect information about each visitor who requests Dahlhaus-Leuchten.de Web pages, including your computer's internet protocol (IP) address.

We offer the option of processing the payment transaction via the payment service provider PayPal (PayPal (Europe) S.à.rl. et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg). This corresponds to our legitimate interest in offering an efficient and secure payment method (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). In this context, we pass on the following data to PayPal, insofar as it is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit b. DSGVO): Full name, address, e-mail address and telephone number if given.
The processing of the data specified under this section is neither required by law nor by contract. Without the transmission of your personal data, we cannot carry out a payment via PayPal. [You have the option of choosing a different payment method.]
PayPal carries out a credit check for various services, such as payment by direct debit, in order to ensure your willingness and ability to pay. This corresponds to PayPal`s legitimate interest (according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) and serves to execute the contract (according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR). Your data (name, address and date of birth, bank account details) will be passed on to credit agencies for this purpose. We have no influence on this process and only receive the result of whether the payment was made, rejected or pending verification.
If you choose a payment method from the payment service provider Mollie, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Mollie B.V., Keizersgracht 313, 1016 EE Amsterdam, Netherlands, to whom we will send the information you provided during the ordering process together with information about your order (name, invoice amount, currency and transaction number) in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Your data will only be passed on for the purpose of payment processing with the payment service provider Mollie and only to the extent that it is necessary for this.
When using the Sofortüberweisung payment method, your payment data will first be passed on to Mollie in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR in order to prepare the payment. Depending on your selection of an available local payment method, Mollie then transmits your payment data to the provider to carry out the payment in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR: Sofort (SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich, Germany).
