8.11 Use of payment service providers (payment services)

8.12 Apple Pay
If you choose the payment method “Apple Pay” of Apple Distribution International (Apple), Hollyhill Industrial Estate, Hollyhill, Cork, Ireland, the payment processing is carried out via the “Apple Pay” function of your terminal device running iOS, watchOS or macOS by charging a payment card deposited with “Apple Pay”. Here, Apple Pay uses security features built into your device’s hardware and software to protect your transactions. In order to approve a payment, you must enter a code that you have previously specified and verify it using the “Face ID” or “Touch ID” function of your terminal device.
For the purpose of payment processing, the information you provide during the ordering process, together with information about your order, will be passed on to Apple in encrypted form. Apple then encrypts this data again with a developer-specific key before the data is transmitted to the payment service provider of the payment card stored in Apple Pay to make the payment. Encryption ensures that only the website through which the purchase was made can access the payment data. After the payment is made, Apple sends your device account number and a transaction-specific dynamic security code to the originating website to confirm the success of the payment.
Insofar as personal data are processed during the described transfers, the processing is carried out exclusively for the purpose of payment processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Apple retains anonymized transaction data, including the approximate amount of the purchase, the approximate date and time, and whether the transaction was completed successfully. Anonymization completely excludes any reference to persons. Apple uses the anonymized data to improve Apple Pay and other Apple products and services.
When you use Apple Pay on the iPhone or Apple Watch to complete a purchase made through Safari on the Mac, the Mac and the authorization device communicate over an encrypted channel on Apple’s servers. Apple does not process or store any of this information in a format that can identify you personally. You can disable the ability to use Apple Pay on your Mac in your iPhone settings. Go to “Wallet & Apple Pay”, and uncheck “Allow payments on Mac”.

For the release of a payment via Google Pay in the amount of more than €25, the prior unlocking of your mobile device by the respective verification measure set up (such as facial recognition, password, fingerprint or pattern) is required.
For the purpose of payment processing, the information you provide during the ordering process, together with information about your order, will be passed on to Google. Google then transmits your payment information stored in Google Pay to the source website in the form of a uniquely assigned transaction number, which is used to verify that a payment has been made. This transaction number does not contain any information about the real payment data of your payment means deposited with Google Pay, but is created and transmitted as a one-time valid numeric token. For all transactions via Google Pay, Google only acts as an intermediary to process the payment transaction. The transaction is carried out exclusively in the relationship between the user and the source website by debiting the means of payment deposited with Google Pay.
Insofar as personal data are processed during the described transfers, the processing is carried out exclusively for the purpose of payment processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Google reserves the right to collect, store and analyze certain transaction-specific information for each transaction made via Google Pay.

According to Google, this processing is carried out exclusively in accordance with Art. 6 para.1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of the legitimate interest in proper billing, verification of transaction data and optimization and functional maintenance of the Google Pay service.
