Purposes of the data processing
Sprinque Finance is the creditor of the Receivables and processes your personal data in that context.

Sprinque B.V. processes the name and address details of the merchant (which in some circumstances qualify as personal data) and fees and if applicable foreign exchange amounts due. Sprinque Finance, as a creditor, may independently dispose of the Receivables and may, for example, pledge the Receivables to third parties. In such case, your data may also be provided to those third parties insofar necessary to, for example, collect pledged Receivables. Sprinque Finance may also retransfer the Receivables to Sprinque B.V. or transfer them to a third party for collection purposes, or outsource the debt collection to another party than Sprinque B.V., for example if you fail to meet your payment obligations.
Based on its legitimate interests, Sprinque Finance may decide to outsource the administration of the Receivables to a third party other than Sprinque B.V.

defend their rights or to comply with legal obligations.
