Approval for identity assessment
While purchasing on account via Paymorrow GmbH, your personal data is transferred to SCHUFA (SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden) for purposes of the identity assessment and SCHUFA will thereupon transfer the degree of compliance of the particulars saved with it with the particulars specified by you in percentage values as well as, if necessary, a reference to an
ID-based identification check carried out in the past at SCHUFA or another contractual partner to Paymorrow GmbH. Paymorrow GmbH can thus use the transferred compliance rates to identify whether a person is saved under the address specified by you in the database of SCHUFA. A further data exchange or transfer of deviating addresses as well as storage of your data in the SCHUFA database does not take place. The details of the address check are saved with SCHUFA only for reasons of proof.

The “payment in instalments” payment procedure is processed by Paymorrow in collaboration with a correspondent bank, Commerz Finanz GmbH. Provided the customer’s request for “purchase on account” or “payment in instalments” has been accepted by Paymorrow, the customer has the option to apply for the “payment in instalments” payment method via the correspondent bank of Paymorrow. For this, the customer can call the “payment in instalments” offer on the Paymorrow customer portal after successful completion of his ordering in the online shop. In order to use the service, the customer must follow the instructions in the “payment in instalments” menu item. The “payment in instalments” service is provided by Commerz Finanz GmbH.
