The following privacy notice is valid for the online offer at www.sam-sports.com
Controller is SAM SPORTS - Starwatch Artist Management GmbH, Medienallee 4, 85774 Unterföhring, Germany, email address and further contact data following the legal notice, in the following referred to as "we" or "us".
Exceptions will be explained in this privacy notice.
Collection and Processing of Personal Data
All information which is related to an identified or identifiable natural person (e.g., name, address, phone number, date of birth or email address) is personal data.
In general, you are able to use our online offer without providing personal data. The usage of certain services may, however, require you to provide personal data, e.g., registration or the participation in a raffle. Mandatory fields are generally denoted with an *.
Purposes of Processing and Legal Basis for the Processing
We process your personal data for the following purposes, based on the Legal Bases listed:
- Providing this online offer.
Data Transfer to Third Parties, Service Providers
Data Transfer to Third Parties
Your personal data is generally only being transferred to third parties as far as this is necessary for performance of the contract, if we or the third party have legitimate interests in transferring or if you have consented to this. If data is transferred to third parties based on legitimate interests, this will be explained in this privacy notice.
Beyond or in addition to this, data may be transferred to third parties as far as we are obligated to do so under statutory provisions or an enforceable decision made by an authority or a court.
We reserve the right to use service providers in collecting or processing data. Service providers are only given personal data that is necessary for their concrete task. This means that your email address may be forwarded to a service provider so you can receive a newsletter that you ordered. Service providers may also be assigned to provide server capacity. Service providers are generally involved as so-called processors which may only process users' personal data based on our instructions.
Duration of Storage; Retention Periods
We store your data as long as it is necessary to provide our online offer and the services connected with it or as long as we have a legitimate interest in continued storage. In all other cases, we delete your personal data with the exception of such data that we are required to retain for the purpose of contractual or statutory (e.g., taxation or commercial law) retention periods (e.g., invoices). At this point, contractual retention periods may also result from contracts with third parties (e.g., those holding copyrights or IP rights).
Data that is only retained because it is subject to a retention period is restricted from processing until the period expires and will then be deleted.
Every time you use the internet, your internet browser automatically transmits certain information which is then saved by us in log files.
We save log files for the purposes of determining disruptions and for security reasons (e.g., to elucidate attack attempts) for a period of 7 to 10 days and delete them thereafter. Log files which need to remain stored for evidence purposes are excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally resolved and may be forwarded to investigating authorities on a case-by-case basis.
Log files contain especially following information:
IP address (internet protocol address) of the terminal device
- which is used to access the online offer;
- Internet address of the website from which the online offer is accessed (so-called URL of origin or referrer URL);
- Name of the service provider through which access to the online offer occurs;
- Name of accessed file or information;
- Date and time and duration of access;
- Amount of data transmitted;
- Operating system and informations on the internet browser used, including add-ons installed (e.g., for the Flash Player);
http status code (e.g. “request successful” or “file not found”).
What are Cookies?
Cookies are little text files that are sent when visiting an internet page and are stored in a user’s browser. In case the respective internet page is accessed once again, the user’s browser sends back the content of the cookies and, thus, allows for the recognition of the user. Certain cookies are automatically deleted upon ending the browser session (so-called session cookies), others are saved for a set time or permanently in the user’s browser and delete themselves thereafter (so-called temporary or persistent cookies).
Which Files are Saved in the Cookies?
Cookies generally do not contain personal data, but instead only an online ID.
How can you Avoid the Usage of Cookies or Delete Cookies?
You can deactivate the storage of cookies through your browser settings and you may delete cookies that have already been saved in your browser at any time (see Technical Notes – Module 17). Please take note that this online offer might not be functional without cookies or the functionality might be reduced.
Please be further advised that refusing to allow the creation of usage profiles partially works through „opt out cookies“. In case you delete all cookies, an objection might, under certain circumstances, no longer be considered or be valid and would have to be restated.
What Cookies do we use?
Cookies Strictly Necessary for a Service
Some cookies are strictly necessary so we can host our online offer safely. This category includes, e.g.,
- Cookies which serve the purpose of identifying or authenticating our users;
- Cookies that temporarily store certain user entries (e.g., shopping basket content or content of an online form);
- Cookies that remember certain user preferences (e.g., search query and language settings);
- Cookies that store data to ensure the uninterrupted playback of video and audio content;
We use analytics cookies to record and statistically evaluate our users’ usage behavior (e.g., clicked ad banners, visited subpages, search queries asked).
Google Analytics is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). We use Google Analytics with the additional function offered by Google to anonymize IP addresses. While doing so, Google already shortens IPs within the EU in most cases and only does so in the United States in exceptional cases, while always saving shortened IPs only.

Users’ Rights (Rights of the Data Subject)
Users’ Rights (Rights of the Data Subject)
You have the right to receive information as well as – under certain prerequisites – the rights to correction, deletion, restriction of processing or objection to personal data processing and – from May 25, 2018, on – the right to data portability.
Right to object against direct marketing
Additionally, you may at all times object to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes ("advertisement objection"). Please take into account that, due to logistical reasons, there might be an overlap between your objection and the usage of your data within the scope of a campaign which is already running.
In case you consented to the processing of your data, you can always revoke this consent at any time. The lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal remains unaffected.
To enforce your rights, please use the details provided in the Contact section. When doing so, please ensure that it is possible to clearly and unambiguously identify you.
