- Creditreform Paderborn, Friederichs & Davis KG, Am Hoppenhof 30, D - 33104 Paderborn

For a credit rating, we send personal data and use the information we receive about the statistical probability of a payment default. The credit rating information may contain probability values (score values) calculated based on scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical procedures. Using a number of markers, for instance income, address data, career, marital status and previous payment behaviour, the future payment default risk of the customer can be estimated. The result is presented as a number (a so-called score). This information collected in this way forms the basis for our decision about the justification, execution or termination of the contractual relationship.

However, the selection of one of the payment options does not depend on this kind of information.
