Ultimately, this is a statement on the information about people – like you. It includes facts about you (e.g., results following your participation in events), and also features about your sporting activity. It is not about information related to MPG (although sometimes the two overlap). This information is sometimes called "Personal Data", "Identifiable Personal Data" or "PII". In this statement, we will use the term "Personal Data".

What personal data does MPG collect and use?

The personal data collected by MPG typically includes, but is not limited to:

• your name, date of birth, contact details (e-mail, telephone, address), documents proving your identity;

Why do we use personal information about you?

MPG collects and processes personal data:

1. to provide you with the services you expect from us. This includes sending your name and relevant personal information (e.g., telephone number) to the organizers of the event you have signed up for, so that they can inform you and keep you up to date on the organization details or manage your participation, and by default be able to carry out the event organization activity. The organizers can thus contact you by e-mail, telephone and / or other communication methods;

2. with your explicit consent, we may use your contact details for direct marketing, for example via e-mail, messages or telephone;

3. to develop, test and improve our Website or other new or existing systems / processes, in order to better serve you; this takes place in the context of new IT systems and processes, so that data about you can be used to test these new IT systems and processes, where bogus data cannot fully replicate the operation of that new IT system;

4. to carry out studies, statistics and analytical research;

5. for data transfer to third parties (see below);

6. if necessary, to comply with any legal obligations; and

- g. to participate in any potential or actual acquisition or sale, or in a joint venture, in a business or company, in whole or in part, in which MPG or its Affiliates wish to participate.

What are the provisions of the law in this regard?

According to the law, we must have a legal basis for processing the data we keep about you. The processing of personal data by us for all the purposes listed above is based on the reason for processing, such as the performance of the Services to which you are entitled (objectives 1 and 6-7), processing necessary to comply with the legal or regulatory obligations (objectives 6-7) and / or the necessary processing in the legitimate interests of MPG in the exercise of its fundamental rights and of its personnel to carry out an activity in a way that does not affect your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms (objectives 1-5 and 7). When data processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of the MPG, we ensure that the processing is performed in such a way that our legitimate interests outweigh any individual interests. Except for the above-mentioned reasons, we will process your personal data only with your consent (an additional processing basis).

Are you bound to provide us with the personal data we request?

You do not have the obligation to provide us with your personal data, but it is almost impossible for us to work with you and offer our services to you otherwise.

Do we process personal data about you without human intervention?

Yes, we do this sometimes. MPG may use automated systems/processes and make automated decisions (such as creating analytics profiles), to provide you with the services associated with the organization of the event, to track the performance of internal activities, such as marketing campaigns. 

 

How long do you keep your personal data?

MPG may keep your personal data indefinitely, as it contributes to the functionality of the Services, and to the correct display of information related to the conduct of an event/tournament (e.g., final results of the event).

Do we transfer your data to third parties?

As mentioned above, we can disclose your data to third parties, in specific conditions:

• To our suppliers. We may, for example, contract a supplier to perform administrative and operational work in support of our relations with you. The provider(s) will be bound by the contractual obligations and other legal obligations to observe the confidentiality of your data and to respect your privacy, and will only have access to the data necessary to perform their functions; relevant providers are primarily IT providers (who host or support our IT systems, including information about you), insurance or security companies (who offer you specific services, such as accident insurance policies or live watching of events; as a result, they need to know about you in order to provide you with these services), and financial and accounting management service providers (who may need to process your details in order to comply with legal accounting processes). We can also contract providers that offer IT technology services and solutions, which may include the generation of customizable photo/video content, content that can be offered to you for free or for a fee, digital timing for competitive events, based on which the final rankings are generated, without which it would be impossible to reward the participants or implement certain Services provided by the Website;

To our affiliates, the MPG Sports Club Association and the ProAm Events Foundation. They are located in Romania; our affiliates perform different functions, and as a result, your data may be shared with them for different reasons;

• Subject to legal provisions, we will share your data with the government, police, regulatory bodies or regulatory agencies if, at our discretion, we consider that we are legally required or authorized to do so, or that it would be prudent to do so; and

• As part of prior verification of (or implementation of) a merger, acquisition or other business transaction, we may need to disclose your information to the potential seller or buyer and its consultants.

 

Do we transfer your data outside the European Union?
