4. product: matching algorithm or brokerage platform

As part of using the platform, the sub-broker, sales coordinator or provider first registers on the platform with their data and creates a company profile as a sub-broker, sales coordinator or provider. With regard to this data, fundingport carries out a preliminary check to ensure that it is complete.fundingport must therefore first process some of this data so that we are able to ensure targeted matching between customers and providers. According to the data provided by the sub-intermediary during the registration process, fundingport or our matching algorithm selects the matching providers based on the information provided by the sub-intermediary and the corresponding criteria of the providers. The sub-broker can then select the providers found by the matching algorithm on his own responsibility and decide to which provider the entries he has made and the data and documents uploaded in the data room should be displayed. If the sub-broker is a sole trader, the legal basis for the processing of the matching is Art. 6 (1) b DSGVO, in all other cases Art. 6 (1)f DSGVO, based on the legitimate interest in the fulfillment of the contract with the sub-broker.

The sub-broker, sales coordinator or provider can use the data room located on our platform to upload additional data and documents. Providers selected by the sub-intermediary will then have access to this data and documentation. The selected providers or their sales coordinators can make an offer to the sub-broker based on this data and after due diligence has been performed on their side, which the sub-broker can accept or reject. He or she can upload data and documents in the data room without the influence of fundingport, share them with providers in the event of provider selection, and also delete them again.With regard to the processing of personal data entered or uploaded into the data room by the respective sub-broker, sales coordinator or provider and stored there, we are not the data controller under data protection law, but process the data stored there in our function as order processor for the respective sub-broker, sales coordinator or provider responsible under data protection law in accordance with the order processing agreements concluded with the latter.
