Scalapay SRL - Privacy Notice
The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
The Data Protection Act 2018 (“DPA 2018”) sets out the framework for data protection law in the UK. It updates and replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 and came into effect on 25 May 2018.
It sits alongside the GDPR, and tailors how the GDPR applies in the UK - for example by providing exemptions. It also sets out separate data protection rules for law enforcement authorities, extends data protection to some other areas such as national security and defense, and sets out the Information Commissioner’s functions and powers.

Automated Decision Making
Our company uses systems to automatically make decisions which may have an effect on your order. For further details, please check the following:
We use computer systems to generate the following type of decisions:
1: Approval of loans to customers
The following is a description of the processes involved:
When the customer selects the Scalapay payment method we use an automated system that take into consideration the customers history on the platform as well as other fraud/risk signals to determine the maximum loan amount. If the customer’s order is approved the payment is transferred to the retailer. If the customer's order is rejected, then they are redirected back to the retailers website
This is why we conduct automated processing:
We use this process to limit the amount of loans we provide to potentially fraudulent customers or to customers that we believe are at risk of not being able to repay the loan.
This is the potential impact it might have on you:
Customers may be denied the approval of the loan
You have the right to challenge such decisions, to express your point of view or to request an explanation of any decisions reached. For further details or queries on automated processing, you may contact us directly.
How do we look after personal data?
We limit the amount of personal data collected only to what is fit for the purpose, as described above. We restrict, secure, and control all our information assets against unauthorised access, damage, loss, or destruction; whether physical or electronic. We retain personal data only for as long as is described above, to respond to your requests, or longer if required by law. If we retain your personal data for historical or statistical purposes, we ensure that the personal data cannot be used further. While in our possession, together with your assistance, we try to maintain the accuracy of your personal data.
