- The use of personal data by myClubs with headquarters in Vienna, Austria and its business address Schottenfeldgasse 69/3.1, A-1070 Vienna. („myClubs„), is subject to the applicable laws, and user consent to the use of their data.
- myClubs facilitates contracts between on one side sports venue operators, operators of gyms and sports clubs or other service providers (collectively, the „Partners„) and on the other side its members. Furthermore, myClubs itself also organizes events where members can participate. For this purpose, myClubs provides under the domain www.myclubs.com an intuitive platform for booking sports and use of social media functions (the „Platform„) (collectively, the „Services of myClubs„).
- myClubs is aware that the protection and careful handling of personal data is extremely important. Since data protection occupies an important place at myClubs, myClubs adheres strictly in the use of this data to the applicable Austrian legal requirements.
- The user is instructed to read the general terms and conditions („GTC“) of myClubs.
§ 2 Data Collection
- myClubs captures and stores any type of information that the user enters via the Platform or via any other means that myClubs provides. myClubs uses the user's personal data to the extent permitted by law, and only with the consent of the user. When the consent within the scope of services is given electronically, myClubs fulfills legal requirements and logs this consent by means of appropriate technical systems.
- In addition to the data mentioned under § 5 and 6, myClubs uses the following personal user data: names, address, email address and mobile telephone number.
- In addition, the IP address is automatically transmitted from the user's device to myClubs and then saved on the myClubs server. The IP address is a worldwide, unique device identifier and consists of four (4) different blocks of numbers separated by dots. In most cases the user, as a private person, will not use a static IP address, since this is only temporarily assigned to the user by the provider (so-called dynamic IP address). With static IP addresses, however, a clear allocation of user data is possible in principle. Except for the purpose of prosecution for unauthorized access to myClubs services, myClubs does not use this information in relation to an individual, but evaluates this data on an anonymous basis for statistical purposes, for example to determine which pages and hyperlinks are favored or how many daily accesses there were.
