9. Information regarding your right to object pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR

You have the right at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object and prevent the processing of personal data concerning you pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 lit. e of the GDPR (Data processing in the public interest) and Article 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR (Data processing on the basis of a balance of interest); this also applies to profiling based on the provision of Article 4 para. 4 of the GDPR.

If you file an objection, we shall no longer process your data, unless we are able to provide proof of compelling and legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of exercising, enforcing or defending of legal rights.

Insofar as your objection is directed against the processing of data for direct marketing purposes, we shall stop processing immediately. In this case, the specification of a particular situation is not required. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.

If you would like to exercise your right to object, just send an email to privacy@gazprom-football.com.

10. Data security

All personal data transmitted by you shall be encrypted using the generally accepted and secure standard TLS (Transport Layer Security). TLS is a safe and proven standard, which is also used in online banking for example. You can detect a secure TLS connection, among other things from the “s” at the end of the http (i.e. https: //..) in the address bar of your browser or the padlock icon at the bottom of your browser.

In addition, we use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction, or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continually improved in line with technical developments.
