To be able to offer various possible options for the choice of payment method, we are required to protect you and us against abuse and fraud.

You can object to the transmission of your data to Bürgel at any time. A notice in writing (for example, e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this purpose. However, we point out that you will be limited to a smaller selection of payment methods available in this case.

Moreover PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. itself or third parties instructed by PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. can perform a credit check. In this case Tyres.net has no influence and the data protection lies outside the area of our responsibility.
