Casino verification: Betano (Betkick GmbH) obtains my Schufa score without my knowledge/consent

So, now I'm writing a forum entry for the first time in a long time...


I went to Schufa and got the letter that you can request once every 12 months. And it contains some pretty astonishing information, and something that really infuriates me.

On the one hand, I'm amazed that casinos are constantly carrying out identity and age checks in the background. And many casinos appear where I have not been active for a long time. But that's fine and has NO influence on my credit score.


But on the last page is a table "Probability values submitted in the last 12 months".

The few items that appear there are clear to me so far, except for one and the "request" came from Betkick-Sportwettenservice GmbH (Betano).

This happened at the end of last year, at a time when I hadn't deposited anything there for 3 months, hadn't played anything and certainly hadn't gambled anything. The company took the liberty of having my credit score transferred to them. In other words, they asked how solvent/reliable I was.

Let me summarize:

No activity from me in this casino at the time, no depositors, no money losses and above all NO consent from me for this request from Betano.


Is this really legal? The chat referred to the terms and conditions. But is a casino allowed to take a value just like that WITHOUT my explicit consent? This request remains there for 12 months!???!!

This is really going way too far for me personally! Otherwise there are only really posts with very relevant content, for which I had also given my consent at that moment!!! But if every casino can now simply make such requests, the fun really stops for me.


Thanks in advance for your hopefully helpful answers

Addendum:

I have just phoned Schufa. They are now asking Betano how this came about and will then inform me.

I can only recommend that you take a look at your Schufa data!

But wait, as a company you can only make such an entry if there is a question as to how likely you are to pay your bills and/or whether they will add a Risk premium to your credit if your score is within limits but not good, or am I on the wrong track?

Because if so, where on earth do they have a legitimate interest? Because this is only the case if you want to buy something from them and they make an advance payment, which is certainly not the case with sports betting

If that was such an entry, I would not put up with it Keyword compensation your Schufa is marked with it for 12 months and even if they delete it, this should never have happened

That's right! That's the crux of the matter. I don't want to buy anything from them, I don't want to open an account there and I don't want to apply for a loan there either. That's exactly why I'm wondering what my Schufa score concerns them?


I won't put up with that either, definitely not. They must be on fire to make such requests. Especially at a time when I haven't been active there for a while.

What's more, it's never good for the Schufa if you often request credit terms and one entry more or less makes a difference

But nowadays there are many lawyers who can easily get you 5k in damages for such an offense

I don't know whether I could really receive compensation. That's not what I was primarily concerned with.

I now have everything I need. And I've also taken screenshots at Betano of the ridiculously small sums I deposited months before this query, in case they want to argue with strange things.
