You're stumped. A bank refuses you a loan, a mobile phone provider says 'no' to your application for a new phone contract and you keep being rejected by rental agencies. Then you find out it's because Germany's leading credit bureau, SCHUFA, has given you a low score. We want to find out if these scores are inaccurate or biased. Please support us by donating a little bit of money and a whole lot of data!

Zum Ablauf: Bei fordert Ihr kostenfrei Eure SCHUFA-Auskunft an. Sie kommt nach 4-6 Wochen per Brief.

Nach Crowdfunding-Erfolg entwickeln wir eine Datenspende-Plattform. Ab Mai können Scans/Fotos der Haupttabelle der SCHUFA-Auskunft & freiwillige Angaben zu Alter, Geschlecht, PLZ usw. an uns übermittelt werden.

Erste Analysen der Daten gibt's ab Juni. Ob wir anonymisierte Datensätze veröffentlichen können, müssen wir noch klären.
