You can omit optional information. If you want the free version, do NOT check “Alternative: Order credit information” and do NOT enter any bank details.
Step 3: copy ID documents (front and back)
In step 3 you have to provide your proof of identity. You do this as a German citizen by copying the front and back of your ID card. If you do not have your identity card on hand, you can also make a copy of your passport and a copy of your registration confirmation. Incidentally, the copies do not have to be certified. Alternatively, you can also scan and print out the documents.
If you are a citizen of another country, you must copy both your passport and your registration certificate.
Step 4: Send the completed application with copies of the identification documents to Private credit checker
In the fourth and final step, put the completed application together with the copies of your ID in a franked envelope and send it to the Private credit checker office specified in the form.

Who or what is Private credit checker and what data does it store?
The abbreviation Private credit checker stands for a protection association for general credit protection. It has existed since 1927 and was founded in Berlin. The file maintained by the Private credit checker (popularly also: Private credit checker file) contains personal data including current and previous addresses and date of birth. In addition to this personal data, all information on the credit transactions made in the past and the opening of accounts at banks and contracts (DSL, mobile communications) are stored. This data will be automatically deleted at the latest three years after completion / recovery. For claims under 1000 USD, the stored data will be deleted from the Private credit checker file after one year, for minors directly after repayment.
