The general legal basis for the processing of personal data

The following applies as a matter of principle to our processing of personal data:

  • In so far as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing procedures of personal data, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a) of the EU General Data Processing Regulation (GDPR) acts as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
  • In the case of the processing of personal data which is needed for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b) of the GDPR acts as the legal basis. This also applies to processing procedures which are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
  • In so far as the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a legal obligation to which our Association is bound, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter c) of the GDPR acts as the legal basis.
  • In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person render the processing of personal data necessary, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter d) of the GDPR acts as the legal basis.
  • If the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the legitimate interest of our Association, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f) of the GDPR acts as the legal basis.
Data deletion and duration of archiving

The personal data is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the archiving no longer applies. Data can also be archived if this was stipulated by the European or national legislative body in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which we, as the controller, are subject. Data is also blocked or deleted if a retention period required by the above-mentioned regulations etc. expires unless it is necessary that the data continues to be archived for the conclusion or performance of a contract

In specific terms this means:

If we are processing the personal data on the basis of consent for data processing (Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the processing is ended when you revoke your consent unless a further legal basis for processing the data exists. This is the case if, at the time of the revocation, we are still entitled to process your data for the purpose of the performance of a contract, or if the data processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests (on this point see also below). If, by way of exception, we are processing the data by reason of our legitimate interests (Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f) of the GDPR as part of a previous assessment, we will save this data until the legitimate interest no longer exists, the assessment comes to a different conclusion, or you have lodged a valid objection pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR (on this point see the highlighted “Note on a particular right to object” below). If we are processing the data for the purpose of the administration of a contract, e.g. because you signed up for the match or the Spectator Package, we will save the data until the contract has been finally performed and brought to a conclusion and no further claims can asserted under the contract, in other words until the matter becomes time-barred. The general period of prescription according to § 195 of the German Civil Code is three (3) years. However, certain claims, for example claims for compensation, only become time barred after 30 years. If there is a legitimate reason for assuming that this is relevant in a particular case, we will save the personal data during this period of time. The above-mentioned periods of prescription commence at the end of the year (therefore on December 31) in which the claim arose and the obligee becomes aware or should have become aware of the circumstances giving rise to the claim and the person of the liable party becomes or should have become aware of the foregoing without gross negligence. We wish to point out that we are also subject to statutory retention obligations for reasons associated with taxation and book-keeping. These oblige us to archive certain data as evidence for our book-keeping which can include personal data for a period which can range from six (6) to ten (10) years. These retention periods take precedence over the above-mentioned deletion obligations. The retention periods also commence at the end of the year in question, and therefore December 31.

Sources of personal data

The personal data we process originates primarily from the data subject himself or herself, for example by these persons

  • as users of our web-site via their browser and user’s technical systems information such as their IP address to our web-server,
  • as interested parties requesting information material or quotation
  • as clients confirm an order with us close a contract with us,
  • as representatives of the press asking for press releases, a statement or similar,
  • as suppliers delivering goods to us which we have ordered or performing services or similar for us.

As a rare exception, the personal data we process may also come from third parties, for example if a person is acting on behalf of another person.

Concrete categories, purposes and legal basis for processing personal data

We process the following categories of personal data:

  • users of our web-site,
  • interested parties,
  • representatives of the press
  • clients, and
  • suppliers.

Depending on the category of the data involved we process personal data for the following purposes on the legal basis specified in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

User data: We do not collect and process data about users of our web-site in personal form. It is impossible for us to attribute this data to a particular person. The IP address is only processed in an anonymised form. On the other hand in so far as personal data is involved in exceptional cases, we process this data for the protection of our legitimate interests on the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interests in this sense are our interest in the security and integrity of our web-site and the data on our web-servers (particularly the detection of disturbances and malfunctions as well as the tracking of unauthorised access) plus marketing interests and interests in statistical surveys for the improvement of our web-site, our services. After giving the matter our due consideration we came to the conclusion that the processing of data to protect the above legitimate interests is necessary and overrides your fundamental rights and freedoms requiring the protection of personal data.

Note on a particular right to object:

In so far as we exceptionally process personal data on the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f) of the GDPR (so for reason of legitimate interests), we expressly draw your attention to the fact that you can, for reasons arising from your particular situation, object at any time to processing of the personal data relating to you. We will cease processing your data if we can demonstrate no compelling reasons worthy of protection for the further processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or if we are processing your data for the purposes of direct advertising (cf. Article 21 of the GDPR). A technical process which you use, for example an unambiguous statement sent by technical means by your browser (a “do not track” message) is also deemed to be an objection in this sense.

Data of interested parties/data of representatives of the press: In so far as we process the data of parties interested in our services, this is only done if you enter this data in an input field and send it to us or enter this data in an email for the purpose of a query which is then sent to us. These entries are voluntary We then only process this data in order to deal with your enquiry. This data which is voluntarily sent to us for the purpose of the supply of information about our services is processed as pre-contractual processing in accordance with Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b) of the GDPR and / additionally on the basis of the consent you grant by sending the consent you give in accordance with Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a) of the GDPR.

Client’s Data: We process the data of the our clients for the purpose of the performance of a contract as set out in Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b) of the GDPR and/or on the basis of consent which is granted pursuant to Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a) of the GDPR. This also applies to processing procedures which are necessary for pre-contractual activities (for example as part of the preparation and negotiation of offers).

Suppliers’ data: We process the data of the our suppliers and business partners for the purpose of the performance of a contract as set out in Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b) of the GDPR and/or on the basis of consent which is granted pursuant to Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a) of the GDPR. This also applies to processing procedures which are necessary for pre-contractual activities (for example as part of the preparation and negotiation of offers).

The scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle we only collect and use the personal data of users during the use of our web-site in so far as this is necessary for the provision of a functioning web-site, its content and our services. Normally the personal data of our users is collected and used only after the user has granted his/her consent. The exception is such cases in which it is not factually possible to obtain consent in advance and/or the processing is permitted by the provisions of law.

Provision of the web-site and creation of log files

Every time the web-site is accessed our system automatically collects data and information for technical reasons. This is saved in the server’s log files. This information is:

  • the data and time of access,
  • the URL of the web-site from which access was made (the referrer),
  • the web-sites which were accessed by the user’s system via our web-site,
  • downloaded file(s),
  • the amount of data sent,
  • the user’s Internet service-provider,
  • the browser, browser type and version, the browser engine and engine version,
  • the operating system, operating system version and type, and
  • the user’s IP address and Internet service-provider.

This data is processed separately from other data. This data is not processed in combination with the user’s other personal data. We cannot attribute this data to a particular person.

The purposes of data processing: The temporary processing of the data by the system is necessary so that it is possible to send the contents of our web-site to the user’s computer. The user’s IP address must be saved for the duration of the session to achieve this. Data is saved in log files to ensure the functionality of the web-site. The data also enables us to optimise our offering and the web-site, and to protect the security of our computer system. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this connection.

The legal basis for the data processing: The data and the log files are temporarily saved on the legal basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f) of the GDPR. Our overriding legitimate interest in this data processing is to be found in the purposes stated above.

Duration of the archiving The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data capture for the provision of the web-site, the data is deleted when the session is terminated. The data saved in the log files is deleted after no more than seven days. It is not possible to save the data for longer. In this case the users’ IP addresses are deleted or distorted so that it is no longer possible to attribute them to the client accessing the web-site.

The right to object and the right to erasure: The capture of data is essential for the provision of the web-site, and the saving of data in log files is necessary for the operation of the web-site. As a consequence the user has no right to object to this practice.

Accreditation facility on the website

In our Media Center on our website we offer representatives of the press the facility to obtain accreditation for themselves by entering personal data. This process involves entering data in an entry mask which is sent to us and saved. The data is not passed to third parties. The following data is collected during the accreditation process:

  • Given name, family name,
  • Postal address,
  • Email address,
  • Medium type,
  • Position (e.g. editor-in-chief),
  • Photo accreditation needed (yes/no),
  • Phone (optional),
  • Mobile phone (optional),
  • Fax (optional),
  • Medium name (optional),
  • Business address (optional),
  • Business phone/fax (optional),
  • Website (optional).

The following data is also saved at the time of registration:

  • user’s IP address,
  • Date and time of accreditation.

The user’s consent for processing this data is obtained as part of the accreditation process.

The purposes of data processing: The purpose of the user’s accreditation is to give the user the possibility of attending the event as a representative of the press, and also to give the user access to certain content and services on our website as a representative of the press.

The legal basis for data processing: The legal basis for processing the data is the user’s consent as described in Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a) of the GDPR. If the purpose of the registration is the performance of a contract and the contractual party is the user, or if the purpose is the execution of pre-contractual activities, there exists an additional legal basis for the processing of the data in the form of Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b) of the GDPR.

Duration of the archiving: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. If the accreditation does not result in the conclusion of a contract with the user, this also applies for the data collected during the accreditation process if the accreditation is cancelled or amended. If the accreditation results in the conclusion of a contract with the user, this applies if the data is no longer necessary for the performance of the contract. The need to save the personal data of a contractual partner can exist after even after the termination of the contract in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations. We draw the reader’s attention to the statements above in the section “Data deletion and retention period“.

The right to object and the right to erasure: You have the right to terminate the accreditation at any time. You can do this by informing us accordingly. If the data is necessary for the performance of a contract or the execution of pre-contractual activities, premature deletion of the data is only possible in so far as non-contractual or legal obligations do not conflict with premature deletion of the data.

You can also have the data we hold about you amended at any time.

Contact form and email contact

Our web-site contains a contact form which can be used for contacting us by electronic means. if a user takes advantage of this facility the data you enter in the mask is sent to us and saved. This data consists of:

  • Email address (mandatory field),
  • Name (optional).

The following data is also saved when the message is sent:

  • the user’s IP address,
  • the date and time of the transmission.

Your consent for the processing of the data is obtained and your attention drawn to this data protection statement as part of the transmission process. Alternatively you can contact us via the email address we provide. In this case the user’s personal data transmitted with the email is saved. In this case the data is not passed to third parties. The data is only used for the distribution of the Newsletter.

The purposes of data processing: The only purpose for processing the personal data in the input mask is to be able to contact you. In the case of contact by email, there is also a necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The purpose of processing the other personal data during the transmission procedure is to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure that out information system remains secure.

The legal basis for data processing: The legal basis for processing the data is the user’s consent as described in Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a) of the GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of data which is communicated in the course of an email transmission is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f) of the GDPR. If the objective of the email contact is the conclusion of a contract, an additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b) of the GDPR. .

Duration of the archiving: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data in the input mask of the contact form and the personal data sent by email, this is the case if the conversation in question with the user is at an end. The conversation is at an end if it can be gathered from the circumstances that the matter in question has been definitely settled. The additional data also collected during the transmission process is deleted after a period not exceeding seven days.

The right to object and the right to erasure: The user can at any time withdraw his/her consent for the processing of the personal data. If the user contacts us by email, he/she can object to the saving of his/her personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. You can revoke the consent and object to archiving without any need for a specific form (e.g. you can use email). In this case all personal data which was saved in the course of the contact with you is deleted.

If you have asserted the right to the correction, deletion or restriction of the processing to the controller, the latter is obliged to inform all recipients to which the personal data relating to you was disclosed about the correction or deletion of the data or about the restriction of the processing unless this proves to be impossible or is associated with disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed by the Controller about these recipients.

The right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data you sent to us relating to you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from us if the conditions of Article 20 of the GDPR are met. You can contact us for this purpose by post or email.

The right to restrict processing because of our legitimate interest

In so far as we process personal data on the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f) of the GDPR (therefore for reason of a legitimate interest,) you have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to our processing of the personal data relating to you. We will cease processing your data if we can demonstrate no compelling reasons worthy of protection for the further processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or if we are processing your data for the purposes of direct advertising (cf. Article 21 of the GDPR). You can contact us for this purpose by post or email. A technical process which you use, for example an unambiguous statement sent by technical means by your browser (a “do not track” message) is also deemed to be objections in within these meanings.

The right to revoke consent

You have the right at any time to revoke an agreement you have given for the collection and use of personal data with effect for the future. You can contact us for this purpose by post or email. The lawfulness of the processing undertaken by reason of the consent you gave up to the time of its revocation is not affected.

Automatic decision-making including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing (including profiling) which has a legal effect on you or which is significantly to your detriment in a similar manner unless the decision is necessary for the conclusion of an agreement between you and us, is admissible by reasons of provisions of law of the European Union or member states to which we are subject and these provisions of law contain reasonable measures to protect your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, or the decision is taken with your express consent.

We do not take automated decisions of this nature.

Voluntary provision of data

If the provision of the personal data is stipulated by law or a contract, we will always point this out when the data is collected. The data we collect is sometimes necessary for the conclusion of a contract, to be specific, if we are unable to meet our contractual obligation to you or cannot adequately meet them in any other way. You are under no obligation to provide personal data. However, the failure to provide such information can mean that we are unable to perform or offer the service, action, measure or similar you require, or that it is impossible to conclude a contract with you.

The right to complain to a supervisory authority

Notwithstanding other rights, if you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes data protection law, you have the right at all times to complain to a supervisory authority for data protection, particularly in the member state where you reside, where you work or the place of the alleged infringement.
