Collection, storage and processing of data
ClickDirectPay collects the following data of the participant:
With this privacy notice, GH Capital Inc. is letting you know about the personal data collected, processed, and used when you use the ClickDirectPay transfer service.
By initiating a ClickDirectPay transfer, you authorize us to conduct check automated checks to determine if your account balance will cover the transfer amount and if you have had any successful ClickDirectPay transfers in the past 30 days. Once this check is passed, we will electronically transmit your bank transfer authorization to your bank and notify your selected payees (online vendors) that the transfer has been successfully authorized. The online vendor thus receives confirmation that your online transfer has been authorized without having to obtain data about your credit rating or having to store your bank information. This allows the online vendor to provide the service or delivery immediately with confidence.
Depending on how your bank structures its online accounts, different steps are necessary to conduct these checks. Some banks accept transfer orders only if a corresponding amount to cover the transaction is already on hand. If this is the case, we will not perform a check of your account balance. In other cases, we will check if your account balance and overdraft line of credit are sufficient to cover the transfer amount. This does not yet initiate a debit from your account ("pending transfers").
For transfers with an increased risk of fraud, we also check if ClickDirectPay transfers from your account were successful within the past 30 days. If records of such transfers are stored in our system, we will check whether the transactions actually posted (e.g. by comparing the amount and purpose line).
We collect the necessary data for these tests online. In so doing, we can sometimes use your bank's specific software interfaces (e.g. according to the HBCI standard for electronic banking). Alternatively, our system automatically retrieves the data from the user interface of your online banking access, just as if you had logged in yourself. If you manage multiple accounts over your online banking access, our software shows you the available checking accounts to choose from. We do not use or store information about accounts not selected, especially the account number and their respective balances.
To process your order, we forward the data displayed in the transfer form upon approval to your bank. We do not store your PIN and TAN, instead only using them to access your bank directly via an encrypted connection that meets banking standards The online vendor is notified that your transfer has been successfully authorized. This includes only the data from the transfer form (name, account number, routing number, subject, transfer amount) and the date (including time) and the transaction identification code (order number) chosen by the online vendor. For SEPA credit transfers and for transfers requiring BIC and IBAN, the online vendor will also be supplied with your BIC and IBAN. This data is also generally available to the vendor on their bank statements. No other personal data will not be transmitted to the online vendor. In the event the transfer does not go through, online vendors are not provided with the reason nor can they find out about it. In this case, you will be redirected to the checkout page where you can choose another payment method offered by the vendor.
To provide online vendors with account statements and to comply with legal retention requirements, we store your name, account number, BIC, subject, date and amount of transfer. For SEPA credit transfers and for transfers requiring BIC and IBAN, we also store your BIC and IBAN for the statutory retention periods. We also use this data for 30 days when processing subsequent ClickDirectPay transfers as part of the checks we conduct as described above. The data retrieved for examination of account coverage and earlier ClickDirectPay transfers are used by us only for the real-time checks described above. We do not store any further personal data, in particular any account balances, sales data, credit limit, account lists, online banking login information (login information / PIN) or TANs.
If we become aware that, despite our prior positive check, a ClickDirectPay transfer has not received by the payee (e.g. the vendor subsequently makes an inquiry about it), we will notify you at the latest by the time we attempt to run the transfer through a second time. Until this matter is resolved, we will accept no further transfer requests from you and/or corresponding online banking access.
