2.5 Payment reminder received?
If you have received a payment reminder from us by e-mail and open it, we store – depending on your e-mail settings – the information that you have received and opened an e-mail sent by us. For this purpose, we use a service provider that enables us to receive a “read confirmation” as soon as you open an e-mail. The reading confirmation is processed for the purpose of determining the suitability of e-mails as a communication channel and to be able to prove the receipt of the payment request. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. You can prevent the collection of the read confirmation by blocking the loading of images in the settings of your email client.
If you write an e-mail to our customer service due to a payment reminder or call our hotline, we regularly collect your e-mail address, your telephone number and possibly your name, depending on the contact method. In order to process your request properly, we may require additional information (e.g. a casefile number, address or date of birth). We use this information to put you through to the relevant person in charge and to process your inquiry. The legal basis for data processing in the context of contacting our customer service is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) and lit. f) GDPR.
The data is generally deleted after the expiry of the statute of limitations of the underlying transaction, unless you need to be stored beyond this due to the connection with another transaction; otherwise, the statutory retention obligations apply.
Finally, for training purposes and to improve our service quality, we may record incoming telephone calls if and to the extent that you have given your express consent before the recording.

You have the right to revoke any consent given in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR with effect for the future. The recordings will be deleted after evaluation for training and quality purposes, unless they still need to be stored until this is done due to an additional interest in preserving evidence.
