In addition, credit checks serve your and our security, as they prevent fraud and other crimes.
As part of the credit check, we check all the data available to us and thus determine which payment methods can be offered for an order. Among other things, all previous orders are checked in your customer account. In addition, it also checks whether the delivery address differs from the billing address, whether it is a new delivery address or whether the order should be delivered to a packing station. In addition to the data we have, data from external service providers are also needed. For this purpose, we provide the personal data required for a credit check (first and last name, your address and, if applicable, your date of birth) to Paypal. We use PayPal Plus’ payment service. The credit service provider of PayPal Plus can be found at the following link.
This credit service provider uses the aforementioned data transmitted by us to make a corresponding assessment of your creditworthiness with respect to the respective order based on mathematical-statistical procedures. Furthermore, the credit rating agency uses the aforementioned data for other companies for the purposes of address verification or identity checks as well as for scoring applications based thereon. The calculation of the probability value also includes your address data. Under certain circumstances, a conclusion on hard negative features is possible. If you do not agree with the payment method (s) offered to you, you can inform us in writing by letter or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and that store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Basically, one differentiates between two different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser and temporary / permanent cookies that are stored for a long period or unlimited on your disk. This storage helps us to tailor our web pages and our offers to you and makes it easier for you to use them, for example by saving certain input from you so that you do not have to constantly repeat it.

The Mallang website uses cookie technology to collect data to optimize our advertising and online content. These data are not used to personally identify you, but serve solely for a pseudonymous evaluation of the use of the homepage. Your data will never be merged with the personal data stored by us.
Mallang uses some advertising partners to help make the website and website more interesting to you. Therefore, when visiting the websites and cookies from partner companies are stored on your hard drive. These are temporary / permanent cookies that automatically delete after the specified time. These temporary or permanent cookies (lifetime 14 days to 10 years) are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time. The cookies of our partner companies also contain only pseudonymous, mostly even anonymous data. For example, this may include information about which products you have viewed, whether something has been purchased, which products have been searched, etc. In doing so, some of our advertisers are also gathering information about the pages visited or beyond the web pages For example, if you are interested in products that best suit your interests, you will be able to see the advertisements. These pseudonymous data will never be merged with your personal information.

The IP addresses of the users will be deleted or anonymized after the end of use. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the details of personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with a disproportionate amount of time, cost and manpower. We evaluate these log file datasets anonymously in order to further improve our offer and the Mallang shop and to make it more user-friendly, to find and fix errors faster and to control server capacities.
6. GOOGLE ANALYTICS

By activating the IP anonymisation on this website, the IP address of the transmission within the member states of the European Union or other signatories within the European Economic Area, will be shortened. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address will be transmitted to a Google Server in the USA and shortened over there, afterwards.

The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. A transfer of this data by Google to third parties takes place only due to legal regulations or in the context of order data processing.

7. ADVERTISEMENTS THROUGH SOCIAL NETWORKS
We advertise through our retargeting advertising partner for this website in search results such as on third-party websites. For this purpose a cookie of this provider or partner is set. This cookie enables interest-based advertisement, based on your visited web pages and a pseudonymous cookie ID. This helps protect the interests for optimal presentation of our offerings in accordance to paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO, in balancing the interests. After purpose ending and the end of our retargeting web partner use by us, the collected data in this context will be deleted.
This involves following providers:
8. SOCIAL PLUGINS
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from various social networks. With the help of these plugins you can, for example, share content or recommend products. The plugins are deactivated by default on mallang.com and therefore do not send any data. By clicking on the button “Activate Social Media” you can activate the plugins. The plugins can of course be deactivated with a click.
If these plugins are activated, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the respective social network as soon as they access a website of our internet presence. The content of the plugin is transmitted by the social network directly to your browser and incorporated by this into the website.
By integrating the plugins, the social network receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to the social network, this can assign the visit to your account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, press the Facebook “Like” button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the social network and stored there.
Even if you are not logged in to the social networks, websites with active social plugins can send data to the networks. An active plugin sets a cookie with an identifier each time the web page is called up. Since your browser sends this cookie unasked every time you connect to a network server, the network could in principle create a profile that called the web pages of the user belonging to the ID. And then it would also be quite possible to assign this identifier later – for example when later logging on to the social network – again a person.
On our websites we use the following plugins: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
If you do not want social networks to collect data about you through active plugins, you can either simply deactivate the social plugins with one click on our web pages or select the function “Block third-party cookies” in your browser settings. Then the browser does not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. With this setting, however, other cross-page features may not work, except for the plug-ins.
