Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, disclose and delete personal data. By using or accessing Statbeat, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect

The European Parliament adopted the GDPR in April 2016, replacing an outdated data protection directive from 1995. It carries provisions that require businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. The GDPR also regulates the exportation of personal data outside the EU.

Your data controller role as a competition Organizer

Statbeat acts as a data processor for Organizers that use Statbeat to organize a competition. You as an Organizer have a customer relationship with players and teams that attend your competition. Therefore, you as a data controller have a legal agreement to collect attendees register. After the competition, when all obligations are filled, you as a data controller have to transform personal data anonymous if attendees want to. Statbeat will keep all anonymous statistics forever for statistical purposes. You as an Organizer can demand a DPA (Data Processing Agreement) from Statbeat to make sure Statbeat does not give your customers’ personal data to third parties. Also, Statbeat has signed DPAs from its all third party data sub processors to protect personal data in Statbeat.

Your data inputting role as a team manager

The competition Organizer acts as a data controller in a competition they Organize with Statbeat. You can not attend a competition without giving personal data about your team and attendees to the Organizer. You as a team manager and your team players have a customer relationship with the Organizer, that is the reason for a legal agreement to collect personal data. You can demand the Organizer to transform your personal data anonymous after the competition when all obligations are filled.

Data Collecting

Statbeat collects personal data for two purposes:

a) We collect personal data as a data processor for Organizers, such as name, phone number and email address, player names and statistics, player numbers, player ages, team manager billing, under the direction of our Organizers for teams to attend a competition, and have no direct relationship with individuals whose personal data we process in connection with our Organizer’s use of Statbeat.

Data Usage

We use personal data for two purposes:

a) Organizers that use Statbeat to organize a competition use collected personal data to do actions that are mandatory to organize a competition, such as collect payments, contact attending team managers, collect match statistics and penalties for team players and control team players punishments and age restrictions. We use email to inform team managers and players automatically on behalf of the Organizer about the tournament.

Our sub processors’ Data Usage

Statbeat uses certain sub processors and content delivery networks to assist it in providing Statbeat. A sub processor is a third party data processor engaged by Statbeat who has or potentially will have access to or process service data (which may contain personal data). Statbeat engages different types of sub processors to perform various functions as explained below. Statbeat undertakes to use a commercially reasonable selection process by which it evaluates the security, privacy and confidentiality practices of proposed sub processors that will or may have access to or process personal data.

Statbeat requires its sub processors to satisfy equivalent obligations as those required from Statbeat (as a data processor) as set forth in Statbeat’s Data Processing Agreement (DPA):

  • Protect personal data.
  • In connection with their subprocessing activities, use only personnel who are reliable and subject to a contractually binding obligation to observe data privacy and security, to the extent applicable, pursuant to applicable data protection laws.
  • Provide training in security and data protection to personnel to whom they grant access to personal data.
  • Promptly inform Statbeat about any actual or potential security breach.
  • Cooperate with Statbeat in order to deal with requests from data controllers, data subjects or data protection authorities, as applicable.
  • This policy does not give Organizers any additional rights or remedies and should not be construed as a binding agreement. The data herein is only provided to illustrate Statbeat’s engagement process for sub processors as well as to provide the actual list of third party sub processors and content delivery networks used by Statbeat as of the date of this policy (which Statbeat may use in the delivery and support). If you are a Statbeat Organizer and wish to enter into our DPA, please contact [email protected].
