Privacy policy

Data protection provisions on the use and application of YouTubedata protection provisions on the use and application of YouTubeThe Alster Ergo-Cup is very pleased about your interest and would like to make it clear right from the start that data protection is a particularly high priority. The Alster Ergo-Cup website can be used without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of the Alster Ergo-Cup via the website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, I will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.


The processing of personal data, such as the name, age, weight category, gender, association, e-mail address, ranking or race results of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Alster Ergo-Cup. By means of this data protection declaration, I would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by the Alster Ergo-Cup. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the controller, the Alster Ergo-Cup has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to me by alternative means, for example by telephone.


1. Definations

The data protection declaration of the Alster Ergo-Cup is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Maker when adopting the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). The data protection declaration is intended to be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for participants and sponsors. To ensure this, I would like to explain the terminology used in advance.

In this data protection declaration, I use the following terms, among others.

1. Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

4. restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its future processing.

5. profiling

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

6. pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

7. controller or person responsible for processing

The controller or person responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

9. Recipient

Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

10. Third party

Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

11. Consent

Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject's wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Alster Ergo-Cup collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses my website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on my website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on my information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Alster Ergo-Cup does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of my website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of my website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term operability of my information technology systems and the technology of my website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the data and information collected anonymously is, on the one hand, analysed statistically and is further evaluated with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of the Alster Ergo Cup, so that ultimately an optimal level of protection is ensured for the personal data I process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Contact possibility via the webseite

Based on statutory provisions, the website of the Alster Ergo-Cup contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to me, as well as direct communication with me, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.


6. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data shall be blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.


7. Data protection provisions on the use and application of YouTube

The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller is called up and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive information about which specific sub-page of my website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific sub-page of my website the data subject is visiting by calling up a sub-page that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited my website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up my website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of your YouTube account before accessing my website.

The data protection provisions published by YouTube, which can be accessed at, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.


8. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves Alster Ergo-Cup as the legal basis for processing operations in which I obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. The legal basis for the remaining data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. My legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection outlined in each case. In no case will I use the data to draw conclusions about you.


9. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The collected personal data will be deleted as soon as one of the conditions mentioned in § 17 para. 1 lit a-f DS-GVO is met or you have exercised your right to deletion.


10. legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

I would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide me with personal data that subsequently has to be processed by me. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide me with personal data if the Alster Ergo-Cup concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact the Alster Ergo-Cup. I will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or by contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be. 11.


11. existence of automated decision-making

The Alster Ergo Cup is responsible. Therefore, it does not use automated decision-making or profiling.


12. exclusion of liability

The organiser is only liable for intent and gross negligence. Liability for simple negligence is limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage, provided that no essential contractual obligations are affected. Further claims are excluded. This applies to the same extent in favour of legal representatives, employees and other vicarious agents. The aforementioned exclusions do not apply in the event of injury to life, limb or health.

The organiser is not liable for damage caused to you when using your own equipment or for accidents caused by yourself.

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies.
