This is why Euro Payment Group GmbH pays particular attention to compliance with data protection law provisions, especially the stipulations of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the Telemedia Act (TMG) and the Telecommunications Act (TKG).
The following statement covers all important aspects of data privacy. Please take note of the information set out below.
Information about the services offered by Euro Payment Group GmbH is given on our website. In addition, Euro Payment Group GmbH also offers various information systems through which connected online merchants can obtain information about the payments settled through Euro Payment Group GmbH.
Responsible party in the meaning of the law is Euro Payment Group GmbH, Rotfeder Ring 11, 60327 Frankfurt, Germany.
The respective customer is the entity responsible for all data handled within the context of contracted data processing. Euro Payment Group GmbH refers all inquiries about these data to the customer in question. In all cases in which Euro Payment Group GmbH acts as the principal it is ensured, that the technical and organisational measures pursuant to § 9 BDSG are in place.

EURO Payment Group GmbH is commissioned by its customers (merchants) to process payments-specific data within the context of payments settlement and the services pertaining to this (e.g. risk management). In its role as contracted data processor, Euro Payment Group GmbH pays particular attention to compliance by the connected customers with the principle of data frugality as defined in the Federal Data Protection Act.
The connected customer (merchant) is the party responsible for the processed payments data. Especially sensitive data, such as credit card numbers and account data, are handled in the payments processing. In accordance with the PCI-DSS regulations, the data are stored exclusively in encrypted form in the databases of Euro Payment Group GmbH.
The data processed to order of the connected customers (merchants) are used exclusively for the purposes commissioned by the customer – e.g. payments settlement and risk management. In so doing and depending on the services commissioned, further data may transmitted to 3rd parties for the purpose of validation e.g. IP geo location information or creditworthiness information.
All data processed to order are stored as stipulated by the customer and deleted on the instruction of the customer – but at the latest on expiry of the due periods stipulated by law. Data is usually blocked instead of deleted if a customer wishes his personal data to be deleted before these statutory periods expire.
