The legal basis for these transfers is Articles 6(1)(b) and 6(1)(f) of the Basic Regulation on data protection. Transmissions on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO may only take place to the extent that this is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of CUMO GmbH or third parties and does not outweigh the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned, which require the protection of personal data.

CRIF Bürgel GmbH processes the data received and also uses it for the purpose of profile formation (scoring), in order to provide its contractual partners in the European Economic Area and in Switzerland as well as, if applicable, other third countries (provided that an adequacy decision of the European Commission exists for them) with information, among other things, to assess the creditworthiness of natural persons.
