Magnius is an international payment platform and processes a large amount of data from merchants of
our clients and the customers of their merchants (i.e. consumers). Both our client as the merchant
of our clients and the consumers are invaluable to Magnius. Ensuring a careful and secure processing
of the data of the merchant and the consumer, in particular personal data, is therefore of great
importance to Magnius.
Magnius wants to inform you clearly and transparently as a website visitor, merchant or consumer of Magnius. We see it as our responsibility to protect your privacy.
Magnius processes personal data from merchants and its representatives as well as from people who
use the services of Magnius. In order to display the processed personal data as clearly as possible,
below a distinction will be made between the website, merchants and consumers.

Magnius does not process special and/or sensitive personal data of our merchants or consumers.
However, Magnius tests with warning systems such as the national hotline for internet scams or
websites, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses that have been registered negatively. We always
record a positive or negative report in our system. This does not concern criminal data.
We request that our merchants and consumers do not share special personal data with Magnius. If you decide to share it with Magnius, we will only process this data if this is necessary for our services.
We process personal data for the following purposes:
If Magnius wishes to process your personal data for other, for example commercial, purposes than described above, Magnius will only do this after your explicit consent has been requested and obtained. You can then withdraw this consent at any time without giving any reason.

Data about any questions, comments or (supports) requests you have made us if you are not a merchant, will be kept for 2 years.
The retention terms above can be longer if we are required to keep data longer on the basis of applicable law or to administer our business. If we need to keep any information longer for our legitimate interest of protecting our legal rights, we will keep the necessary information for this purpose until the relevant claim(s) has/have been settled.
Magnius shares your personal data with our clients and third parties if this is necessary for the
execution of the agreement or on the basis of legal obligations. With third parties that process
your personal data on behalf of Magnius, Magnius concludes a data processing agreement. Magnius
ensures that your personal data is always protected on at least the same level and that the
confidentiality of your personal data is guaranteed. Nevertheless, Magnius remains fully responsible
for these processing operations and will therefore take all reasonable administrative, technical and
physical measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, accidental loss or
