Processing of Personal Data for the Purpose of Contract Fulfillment

  • Accounting firms

Data is disclosed to additional third-parties, if they are subcontracted by us with services in the frame of the general contract. In accordance with our General Terms and Conditions we are entitled to sub-contract third-parties with tasks of the general contract. The scope of the data disclosed is limited to the information required to fulfill the sub-contracted tasks. Such tasks may include: the booking of vehicles (call center “Buchungszentrale”), the provision of vehicles, member administration, the billing of a customer's fares and invoicing. Where needed, data is disclosed on the basis of an order processing contract that ensures the compliance with all data privacy protection requirements.

In all other cases data is disclosed only in cases when required by law, for example in the frame of legal duty of disclosure to law enforcement authorities.

Data Transfer to SCHUFA (Credit Assessment Institution)

teilAuto Neckar-Alb transfers personal data acquired in the course of this contractual relationship about the application, fulfillment and termination and about non-contractual or fraudulent conduct, to the SCHUFA Holding AG Wiesbaden. The legal bases for these data transferals can be found in article 6 paragraph 1 point b and article 6 paragraph 1 point f of the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR). Data transferals on the basis of article 6 paragraph 1 point f GDPR may only be conducted in as far as this is necessary to safeguard the interests of teilAuto Neckar-Alb or third-parties, and if said interests are not outweighed by the interests or basic rights and freedoms of the affected individual, which require the privacy protection of personal data.

The exchange of data with SCHUFA is also done to satisfy the legal requirements to conduct a credit assessment of customers (§ 505a and 506 of the German civil code “Bürgerliches Gesetztbuch”).

The SCHUFA further processes the data received and uses it for profiling purposes (scoring), in order to provide information to contractual partners within the European Economic Area, Switzerland and if needed other countries (provided the existence of an adequacy arrangement by the European Commission), inter alia for the assessment of the creditworthiness of natural persons.
