Data Protection Declaration of VIP Sport Tips. (“VIP Sport Tips”; “we“), EC2Y 8AX, London UK concerning the website http://www.vipsporttips.com/ (“Website“).Below we inform you in detail to what extent we process your personal data and what rights you have in this regard. The protection of your privacy is a high priority to us. The following declaration is intended to inform you comprehensively on what (personal) data we collect while using our services as well as how we deal with it and which rights you have within this context. Our Data Protection Declaration complies with the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (“GDPR“).
Data protection regulations must always be observed when personal data is processed. For the scope of this Data Protection Declaration, the definitions of the GDPR are relevant. Thus, the “processing” of personal data essentially includes any handling of the same. As far as data processed by us are human-related and—even if only through third parties, in a summary or by means of additional knowledge—make you identifiable as a person (in particular, have your full name brought to light), it is basically personal data.
This Data Protection Declaration refers exclusively to the above mentioned website. If you are forwarded to other websites via links on our Website, please inform yourself directly on the target page about the respective handling of your personal data. We cannot assume any responsibility or liability for the content of third party websites that are linked via our Website.
Our Website is designed as a pure analytical and informative portal regarding sports betting. We provide you only with the analytical probability of the outcome of sports events based on historical and public data.  Betting contracts are concluded exclusively with the respective providers via their websites not related to or operated by VIP Sport Tips. VIP Sport Tips has no influence on this and is not involved in these contracts.
 
1) Data Processing following the Access of Our Website
When you visit our website, we collect the following data: IP address. 
You may use our Website without providing any information about yourself. When accessing our Website, we will only store access data (e.g. IP-Address, surfing behaviours, additional meta data, date and time of retrieval, volume of transferred data, requesting provider) in server log files. This data processing is carried out for the purpose of visitor traceability, checking the effectiveness of advertising measures, playing off targeted advertising elements and messages as well as for the purpose of safety and improving the quality of our offer and is based on Art 6 paragraph 1 lit f GDPR (legitimate interests, namely achieving the above-mentioned purposes). However, this information does not allow us to draw any conclusions about you personally. You can therefore to a large extent view all the contents of our Website without providing any personal data.
2) Data Processing when using the contact form on the Website
On our Website you have the possibility to fill in a contact form to make individual inquiries or to get in contact with us. You must at least enter your e-mail address and your full name (first name, last name). Your e-mail address is absolutely necessary for the transmission and answering of inquiries. In this context, we collect your name, if you disclose it to us, on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art 6 paragraph 1 lit f GDPR for organisational and qualitative reasons, so that we can offer you our service in the present form including personal address.
3) Newsletter
On our Website, you also have the opportunity to register for our newsletter. To register, we must collect and store your e-mail address and your name. Your e-mail address is required to send the newsletter (Art 6 paragraph 1 lit b GDPR); your name is required to address you correctly. We collect your name to maintain the quality of our newsletter and for organisational reasons, pursuant to Art 6 paragraph 1 lit f GDPR. The newsletter is sent exclusively to the e-mail addresses provided by interested parties. If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, you may unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the “Unsubscribe Newsletter” button at the end of each newsletter. Unless otherwise provided for by law, and unless the data is processed on a separate legal basis, data collected for sending the newsletter will be deleted after unsubscribing.
 Your data will only be used to send you the newsletter.
4) Push-Notifications
Both on our Website and within our App, push notifications are offered to draw your attention to relevant information in connection with our offer. 
If you visit our Website and the browser you are using supports push notifications, a window will appear. You will be asked if you want to allow push notifications from our Website. If you choose to block our push notifications, the browser will not display any information or news in this way. You must explicitly confirm if you would like to receive notifications. Push notifications can also be managed in the browser settings. Instructions for the most common browsers can be found at https://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/features/how-to-turn-off-push-notifications-on-your-computer-and-smartphone-1639825.
After installing the App, push notifications are automatically activated on your device, depending on the software, or you may be asked whether the App is allowed to display notifications. However, push notifications can also be deactivated for individual apps in the settings of the mobile device, although differences may occur depending on the platform and operating system.
5) Rights of the Data Subject; Transfer of Data to Third Parties
A central aspect of data protection regulation is the implementation of adequate opportunities to allow for the disposition of personal data even after such data has been processed. For this purpose, a series of rights of the data subject are set in place. VIP Sport Tips shall comply with your corresponding requests to exercise your rights without undue delay and in any event within six (6) weeks of receipt of the request. To exercise your rights, please contact us at the following email address: info@vipsporttips.com. Specifically, the following rights are entailed:
1) If you exercise your right to information and there are no legal restrictions, we will inform you in detail about our processing of your data. To this end, we will send you (i) copies of the data (emails, database extracts, etc.), as well as information on (ii) specifically processed data, (iii) processing purposes, (iv) categories of processed data, (v) recipients, (vi) the storage period or criteria its determination, (vii) the origin of the data and (viii) further information as the case may be. Please note, however, that we cannot hand over any documents that could impair the rights of other persons.
2) With the right to correct, you may request that we correct incorrectly recorded, incorrect or (for the respective processing purpose) incomplete data. Your request will then be reviewed and the data processing concerned may be restricted upon request for the duration of the examination.
3) The right to (data) deletionmay be exercised (i) in the absence of any need for processing purposes, (ii) in the event of the revocation of a consent granted by you, (iii) in the event of a special objection, provided that the data processing concerned is based on the legitimate interests of VIP Sport Tips, (iv) in the event of unlawful data processing, (v) in the event of a legal obligation to delete and (vi) in the event of data processing by minors under 18 years of age.
4) In special cases there is an accompanying right to restrictions, after the exercise of which the data concerned may be stored. In addition to the possibility of restricting the examination period for data corrections, (i) the unlawful data processing (if no deletion is requested) and (ii) the duration of the examination of a special request for objection are covered.
5) In addition, you have a fundamental right to objectto data processing at any time. However, this only applies if the processing is based on the legitimate interests of VIP Sport Tips.
6) You may also exercise your right of appeal to the Supervisory Authority (see point 12).
Please also note that we may not be able to comply with your request due to compelling reasons worthy of protection for processing (balancing of interests) or processing due to the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (on our part). The same applies in the case of excessive requests, whereby a fee may be charged here as well as in the processing of manifestly unfounded requests.
6) Data Security
VIP Sport Tips takes all appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that only personal data whose processing is absolutely necessary for business purposes are processed by default. The measures we have taken concern both the amount of data collected, the processing scope and its storage period and accessibility. On the basis of these measures, we ensure that personal data by default is only made available to a narrowly limited and necessary number of persons. Under no circumstances will other persons be granted access to personal data without the express consent of the data subject. We also use various protection mechanisms (backups, encryption) to secure the Website and other systems. This should serve to protect your (personal) data as best as possible from loss or theft, destruction, unauthorized access, alteration and dissemination. 
In accordance with the provisions of the GDPR, all (personal) data collected by us via the Website or App will only be kept for as long as it is required with regard to the legal basis of the processing, unless long-term storage is provided for by law. We fulfil our deletion obligation on the basis of our specific internal company deletion policy, whereby we can provide you with further information on request.
All VIP Sport Tips employees have been sufficiently informed of all applicable data protection regulations, internal data protection regulations and data security precautions and are required to keep secret all information entrusted or made available to them in the context of their professional employment. The requirements of the GDPR are strictly observed and personal data is only made available to individual employees insofar as this is necessary with regard to the purpose of data collection and our obligations arising therefrom.
If we use contractors, they are also obliged to comply with all applicable data protection regulations on the basis of specific framework agreements. Furthermore, when handling your (personal) data, they are strictly bound to our guidelines, in particular with regard to type and scope.
7) Data transmission
For the purposes explained in this Data Protection Declaration, we will transfer your (personal) data to recipients of the following categories: 
Within our organisation, those departments or employees who need your data to fulfil their contractual or legal obligations and as a result of data processing based on our legitimate interests, will receive it.  Furthermore, (external) contractors commissioned by us receive your data if they require the data to provide their respective service (whereby access to personal data is sufficient). All contractors are contractually obliged to treat your data confidentially and to process it only within the scope of the provision of services. This includes the following categories of recipients:
  • Management
  • Customer Management
  • Product Management
  • Marketing
  • Legal Department
  • IT Support
  • Hosting Provider
  • Payment Provider
  • Analytics
We have a constantly updated list of our recipient categories with regard to data transfers and contract processors. 
Some of the recipients mentioned above are outside the EU or process your (personal) data there. However, we take measures to ensure that all recipients have an adequate level of data protection. To this end, we conclude standard contractual clauses, for example, which can be submitted on request. Alternatively, we use providers that are certified according to the EU-US Privacy Shield and for this reason have an appropriate level of data protection according to the GDPR (according to the adequacy decision of the European Commission).
If we use contract processors, they are bound to our data protection practice as previously mentioned and will treat your personal data strictly confidential. Under no circumstances will they transmit your data to third parties or use it for purposes other than those intended to fulfil their obligations towards VIP Sport Tips or in accordance with our express instructions without our express consent.
8) Cookies
We use cookies, which are small text files that are stored on your computer when you access our Website. They help us to make our offer more user-friendly, attractive and secure. In many cases, these are “session cookies”, which are deleted without your intervention as soon as you end your current browser session. Other cookies (e.g. for storing your language setting/date of birth entry) remain for a longer period of time or until you remove them manually. Cookies do not contain any personal data. 
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you have the option of adjusting your browser settings so that cookies are either generally rejected or only certain types are permitted (e.g. restriction of refusal to third-party cookies). If you change your browser’s cookie settings, however, our Website may no longer be used in full. You will find the setting options for the most common browsers under the following links:
  1. Internet Explorer™: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/17442/windows-internet-explorer-delete-manage-cookies
  2. Edge™: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/allow-or-block-cookies-in-microsoft-edge
  3. Safari™: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH21411?locale=de_DE&viewlocale=en_US
  4. Chrome™: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647?hl=en&hlrm=en

  7. Google Analytics
Our website uses Universal Analytics, the new generation of the web analysis tool Google Analytics of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google“), which enables us to analyse how you use this Website. Since a login to our Website is not intended or possible, you will only be assigned a client ID, which will be regenerated for different devices. The tracking code analytics.js (Java Script) is used for tracking. In this context, we process your data on the basis of our legitimate interest in producing easy-to-use website access statistics in a cost-efficient manner (Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit f GDPR). 
By using the software, a cookie is set (for the client ID), which is stored on your computer. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on this Website, your IP address will be reduced by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to its transmission to a Google server in the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity and providing other services relating to Website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. Google cannot find out who you are.
Google is a participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield, which obliges the company to comply with the agreement and to maintain a level of data protection in line with European data protection standards. The Privacy Shield certification can be viewed at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list
With the procedure described under point 8 you can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software (possibly limited to third party cookies). You can also prevent Google from collecting data generated by cookies and relating to your use of the Website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing an appropriate browser plug-in (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). Alternatively, you can also click here to set an opt-out cookie, which is stored on your device and also prevents Google Analytics from collecting your data. If you delete your saved cookies, however, this step is required again. However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all functions of the website to their full extent.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics and your options in this regard can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy.
10) Social-Plugins and “2-Click-Solutions”
Our website uses so-called social plugins (“Plugins“) of the social networks Facebook and Instagram and the microblogging service Twitter. 
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook“). An overview of Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
(Instagram) is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. An overview of the Instagram plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388
Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc, 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter“). An overview of the Twitter buttons and their appearance can be found here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons
In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our Website, the plug-ins are integrated into the site by a plugin called “Social Media Follow Buttons Bar”.  Use of this plugin’s privacy policy can be found: https://www.spacexchimp.com/legal/privacy-policy.html
For information on data collection by the providers and your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the providers’ data protection information.
Privacy policy of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php
Privacy Policy from Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388
Privacy policy of Twitter: https://twitter.com/privacy
If you do not want Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to associate the data collected via our Website directly with your profile at the respective service, you must log out of the corresponding service before activating the Plugins.
Please note that Facebook, Instagram and Twitter participate in the EU-US Privacy Shield, which obliges companies to comply with the agreement and to maintain a level of data protection that meets European data protection standards. The EU-US Privacy Shield has been granted an adequate level of data protection by an adequacy decision of the European Commission; data transfers to certified companies in the third country USA are therefore permitted to a large extent. The Privacy Shield certifications can be viewed at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list
11) Your Online Choices
The website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ of online advertising agencies of the “European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance” (EDAA) provides you with sustainable information on use-based online advertising and online data protection. Furthermore, certain setting options are made available to you in the web interface (“preference management”) at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices, which, for example, allow you to view/edit your cookie settings with regard to numerous companies. A beta plugin for the browsers Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox is also available at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/browser-extension to prevent the accidental deletion of cookies and save your preferences. Companies that are designated as “edaa certified” must comply with certain self-imposed industry guidelines.
12) Right of Appeal
If you are of the opinion that we violate applicable data protection laws when processing your data, you have the right to file a complaint with the relevant national data protection authority. The requirements for such a complaint are based on the respective national implementation law of the GDPR, as the GDPR itself does not provide for any regulation in this respect. However, we ask you to contact us in advance in order to clarify any questions or problems.
