It may be that the social network also records your browsing history or further information. If you interact with the social plugin, that is click on it, and you are at the same time logged into the corresponding social network, in certain circumstances this can be added to your profile and be displayed at other places on the Internet.

How do we pass on data to third parties?
We only pass on your personal data internally within our company or to those businesses which are involved for the purposes of fulfilling the contracts concluded with you. For example, such businesses could include independent dealers who make an estimate in relation to the watch which is to be sold by you for the purposes of determining the price. In the event of being ordered to do so by the authorities or of similar measures, we will make available the information which is requested where appropriate to the relevant authorities. Apart from that, your personal data will only be passed on with your express consent. 

How can you amend or delete your data?

Please contact us at the following address for this purpose: Blome Verwaltung GmbH, Königsallee 30,40212 Düsseldorf, info@blome-uhren.de.

Additional information relating to purchase on account and purchase by payment in instalments

1. Where a purchase is made on account or using payment in instalments, your consent, which is required under data protection law, is obtained from you during the order process. Below you will find those provisions repeated. They are provided for information purposes only.

2. Where you chose to make your purchase on account or by payment in instalments, for the purposes of processing these payment methods personal data (first name, surname, address, email, telephone number, date of birth, IP address, sex) together with the data necessary for processing the transaction (item, invoice sum, interest, instalments, due dates, total amount, invoice number, taxes, currency, order date and order time) will be transmitted to payolution. payolution has a legitimate interest in the data and requires and/or uses it for the purposes of carrying out risk assessments.

3. In order to check the identity and/or the creditworthiness of the customer, inquiries are carried out and information is obtained from publicly-available data bases and credit reference agencies. Information and where appropriate information on creditworthiness on the basis of mathematical and statistical methods may be obtained from service providers 

ConCardis is also entitled to store, process, use and transmit to the above credit reference agencies data on any conduct which is not in compliance with a contract (e.g. undisputed outstanding debts).

4. Under the provisions of the German Civil Code (BGB) on financial assistance provided to consumers by businesses, we are already under a statutory obligation to check your creditworthiness.

After the assignment of the claim to the purchase price, the Bank taking over the claim will carry out the data transfers identified above. We, and/or the Bank to which the claim to the purchase price is assigned, will also report data about failure to repay in accordance with the agreement (e.g. termination of the instalment payment arrangement, debt enforcement measures) to payolution GmbH.

Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge

 Following an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is incorporated into this web page in order to display our Trusted Shops trustmark for buyers and the eventually collected reviews, as well as the Trusted Shops product offer.

In balancing the various interests, this serves to safeguard our legitimate prevailing interests in an optimised marketing of our offer. The Trustbadge and the services advertised are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Köln.

Whenever a Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically stores a so-called server log file which contains, for example, your IP address, the date and time of retrieval, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the retrieval. This access data will not be evaluated and will be automatically overwritten seven days after your visit to the page.

Other personal information will only be transferred to Trusted Shops if you decide, after completing an order, to use Trusted Shops products or have already registered for their use. In this case, the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.
