Privacy Policy

PRIVACY DECLARATION

The following data protection declaration applies to the use of our offer www.kickbase.com and the two apps for iOS and Android "KICKBASE" (hereinafter "Products"). We attach great importance to data protection. The collection and processing of your personal data is carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Responsibility

The person responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR is:

Kickbase GmbH
Rosenheimer Str. 145d
81671 Munich

Represented by the managing directors: Anatol Korel, Johannes Feldges
External data protection officer: Detlef Kutta
E-mail: datenschutz@kickbase.com

If you wish to object to the collection, processing or use of your data by us in accordance with these data protection provisions as a whole or for individual measures, you can address your objection to the person responsible. You can save and print this privacy policy at any time.

GENERAL PURPOSES OF PROCESSING 

We use personal data for the purpose of operating the products. When you register for Kickbase Manager, you submit your email address and password. The provision of a valid email address and password is required for the operation of the products.

In addition, you can also upload a profile photo. For this purpose, the Kickbase mobile app accesses the library data of your mobile device. Your mobile device will ask for access permission by default at this point beforehand. The image data on your mobile device, with the exception of the profile photo you select, is not stored or otherwise processed by Kickbase.

Your first name and profile photo can be viewed by other users with whom you compete in a manager league.

If you have a Facebook account, you can also register with us via the Facebook service "Facebook Connect". A corresponding button is integrated in the Kickbase mobile app and in the web app. If you register with us using Facebook Connect, an automatic link to your Facebook account will take place and the data required for registration will be transferred from your Facebook account to us.

Facebook Connect is an offer of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

Details on the scope and purpose of data collection, data processing, and use by Facebook can be found in Facebook's privacy policy. There you will also find information on the protection of your privacy and on the relevant settings options on Facebook.

We point out that we as the site operator have no influence and knowledge of the transmitted data. Information about Facebook's privacy policy can be found at the following link: Facebook.com/about/privacy.

If you want to create a league within the Kickbase Bundesliga Manager and/or invite friends to participate in this league, this can partly be done by accessing the contacts of your mobile device. By default, an access permission is requested at this point beforehand. In all cases, contact is made directly by the user / manager to their contacts - no initial contact is made by Kickbase. We do not store their contacts in our database at any time and have no interest in the further use of these.

In the mobile app this can be done via WhatsApp invitation or via your email account - in the web app it is done via email. Again, this is always done directly by the user and not by Kickbase - so no consent is required from the recipient.


WHAT DATA WE USE AND WHY 

HOSTING

The hosting services used by us serve to provide the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating the products. In this context, our hosting provider does not process any inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website.

ACCESS DATA

We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage behavior and your interaction with us and register data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about each access to our website (so-called server log files). The access data includes:

  • Name and URL of the file accessed
  • Date and time of access
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Message about successful retrieval (HTTP response code)
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system
  • Referer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • Anonymized IP address and the requesting provider

We use this log data without attribution to your person or other profiling for statistical analysis for the purpose of operating, security and optimization of our products, but also to anonymously record the number of visitors to our products (traffic) and the extent and nature of the use of our products, as well as for billing purposes to measure the number of interactions / clicks received from cooperation partners. Based on this information, we can provide personalized and location-based content and analyze traffic, search for and fix errors and improve our services. This is also our legitimate interest according to Art 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) GDPR.

We reserve the right to review the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is required for security purposes or necessary for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After the termination of the process, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offense in connection with the use of our products. In addition, as part of your account, we store the date of your last visit (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links, etc.).

COOKIES

We partly use so-called session cookies to optimize our products. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and is temporarily stored on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They are used, for example, so that you do not have to log in again each time you call up the products.

To a lesser extent, we also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your terminal device), which remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit. These cookies are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time. Their lifespan is between 1 month and 10 years. This allows us to present our offer to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.

Our legitimate interest in the use of cookies pursuant to Art 6 (1) p. 1 f) GDPR is to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. The following data and information, for example, are stored in the cookies:

  • Log-in information
  • Language settings
  • Search terms entered
  • Information about the number of times our website is called up
  • Use of individual functions of our website
  • When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you are not placed in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymized information, for example, which pages of our products were visited, which pages were viewed, etc.

You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide on a case-by-case basis whether you want to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, or that cookies are completely prevented. This may limit the functionality of the website.

DATA FOR THE FULFILLMENT OF OUR CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS 

We process personal data that we need to fulfill our contractual obligations, such as username, e-mail address, profile pictures. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. The deletion of the data takes place after the expiration of warranty periods and legal retention periods. Data that is linked to a user account (see below) is retained in any case for the duration of the management of this account. The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) GDPR, because this data is needed so that we can fulfill our contractual obligations to you.

USER ACCOUNT 

You can create a user account on our products. If you wish to do so, we require the personal data requested during login. When logging in later, only your email or user name and the password you have chosen are required. For the new registration we collect master data (username), communication data (email address) and access data (username and password).

To ensure proper registration and to prevent unauthorized logins by third parties, you will receive an activation link by e-mail after your registration to activate your account. Only after successful registration do we permanently store the data you have submitted in our system.

Once you have created a user account, you can have it deleted by us at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A notification in text form to the contact data mentioned in section 1 (e.g. e-mail, letter) is sufficient for this purpose. We will then delete your stored personal data, unless we still need to store them for the processing of orders or due to legal storage obligations. The legal basis for the processing of this data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a) GDPR.

NEWSLETTER 

To register for the newsletter, the data requested in the registration process is required. The registration for the newsletter is logged. After registration, you will receive a message to the specified email address in which you are asked to confirm the registration ("double opt-in"). This is necessary to prevent third parties from registering with your email address. You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus unsubscribe. We store the registration data as long as they are needed for sending the newsletter. We store the logging of the registration and the shipping address as long as there was an interest in proving the consent originally given, which is usually the limitation periods for civil claims, thus a maximum of three years.

The legal basis for sending the newsletter is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest in proving that the dispatch was made with your consent. You can cancel the registration at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the prime rates. A notification in text form to the contact details mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, letter) is sufficient for this purpose. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter.

E MAIL CONTACT

If you contact us (e.g. by e-mail), we process your information to process the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. If the data processing is carried out for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out on your request, or, if you are already our customer, for the implementation of the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) GDPR. We only process further personal data if you consent to this (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a) GDPR) or we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) GDPR). A legitimate interest is, for example, to respond to your email.
