DATA PROTECTION

Eintracht Braunschweig GmbH & Co. KGaA („Eintracht Braunschweig“) considers the protection of your personal data a top priority. The legal basis for our dealings in these matters are predominantly featured in the German Data Protection Act and the Tele-Media Laws. Below we provide particular information on when, which data is stored and how we used that data.

1. Anonymous Data

Generally, you can visit the Eintracht Braunschweig websites without your data being made public. We receive merely the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you have visited us and the websites which you duly visit from our website. The information is evaluated solely for statistical reasons, as well as to ensure the security and integrity of our systems. As an individual user, your identity remains anonymous.

2. Person Related Data

2.1 Person Related Data: Person Related Data is information which can be used to establish the user’s identity (Name, Address, Postal Code, Telephone Number etc.). Information which cannot be directly connected with the actual identity of the individual (i.e. favoured websites or the number of users of a website) is not considered Person Related Data.

2.2 Acquisition, Processing and Utilisation: Your Person Related Data is processed and utilised by Eintracht Braunschweig essentially in the justification, definition or alteration of contractual conditions, when they are acquired, processed and utilised. The Person Related Data is generally processed and implemented upon contract settlement, processing of queries (i.e. particularly in the settlement of orders, including payment arrangements, dispatch and service) as well as in the observation of security matters.

2.3 Storage: We endeavour to store your Person Related Data so that all possible technical and organisational measures are taken to ensure that it is not accessible by third parties. Upon e-mail communication, we cannot guarantee complete data protection and we therefore recommend the forwarding of confidential information by post. For the purpose of transaction processing, the necessary Person Related Data is stored in legally binding fashion and is only forwarded to companies connected with Eintracht Braunschweig, distributors and/or banks for invoicing purposes.

2.4 Credit-Card Payment: If you wish to pay by credit-card, we require your credit-card details. This credit-card information is not acquired and stored by Eintracht Braunschweig, but rather directly and exclusively by payment service providers specialising in online services, which have been commissioned by us. In this way, you can shop and pay safely with us.

3. Data-Forwarding to Third Parties

3.1 Order processing: We only then forward your Person Related Data to our service and partner businesses when this is absolutely necessary for the processing of orders and for the fulfilment of contractual obligations. These businesses may only utilise your Person Related Data for these purposes and are required to implement all applicable data protection measures.

3.2 Security aspects: Your Person Related Data can also be transferred in the defence against dangers to public security and/or order and in prosecuting criminal acts, provided this is required by legal regulations. For the imposition and execution of stadium bans, Person Related Data can be forwarded to the stadium ban representatives from Eintracht Braunschweig, the German Football Federation (Deutschen Fußball-Bunds e.V.) and/or the German Football League (DFL - Deutsche Fußball Liga GmbH). To assure safety at games involving Eintracht Braunschweig, the data is compared with the available ban-files (stadium bans).

3.3 Miscellaneous forwarding: Miscellaneous forwarding of your Person Related Data to third parties will not be conducted unless you have expressly permitted such activity. That permission may be revoked at any time and without the declaration of a reason for revoking the stated permission. We may only be required to make your data available to a third party upon legal grounds. We apply only to such requests upon legal grounds and following extensive verification that such obligations exist.

3.4 Marketing: Provided you have expressly complied, your address and order data can then be used for marketing purposes from Eintracht Braunschweig and thus acquired and processed by Eintracht Braunschweig. For external marketing purposes, such data is only forwarded when legally permitted (§ 28 Para. 3 - German Data Protection Act).

Upon the compliance with the forwarding of your data for marketing purposes, your name, address, date-of-birth and e-mail address is then utilised for advertising measures by Eintracht Braunschweig and for external advertising measures (with associated subsidiaries, sponsors and partners of Eintracht Braunschweig).
