Borussia VfL 1900 Mönchengladbach GmbH (hereinafter also referred to as "Borussia") takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. In the following we would like to tell you more about why we save certain data and how this is used.
Anonymous data collection
You can in principle visit the Borussia websites without disclosing your identity. We learn only the name of your internet service provider, the website from where you visit us, and the pages you visit on our websites. This information is used exclusively for statistical purposes. You remain anonymous as an individual user.
Cookies are small text files that can be saved on your computer when you visit a page on the internet. These text files are generated by the web server with which you have established a connection using your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox) and are then sent to you.
The majority of browsers are configured to automatically accept these cookies. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or configure your browser to report to you as soon as cookies are sent. Furthermore, you can delete the cookies from your system (e.g. in Windows Explorer) at any time. Use the help function in the menu bar of your web browser or operating system for this purpose.
Collecting, processing and using personal data
Personal data will be collected only if you have provided it yourself, for example when placing orders or registering for personalised services. The personal data that is collected will be used primarily for processing contracts and answering enquiries. We hereby attach great importance to ensuring we collect only data that is absolutely necessary.
We also use and process your information to keep you informed by post about our products, services and campaigns (e.g. bonus programmes) that may be of interest to you and possibly to carry out customer surveys.
Borussia guarantees the confidentiality of your personal data by:
* Imposing a confidentiality obligation on our employees
* Ensuring our security precautions are state-of-the-art and
* Observing the "data protection declaration" made by the internal data protection officer.
Your personal data will be processed only within the states making up the European Economic Area.
Disclosure of personal data
Should we pass on your personal data we shall do so only to service providers and partner companies who help us process orders or supply customers with information. These companies may use your personal data only to perform their work on our behalf and are obliged to comply with the pertinent data protection regulations.
Sometimes we may have to disclose your data on the grounds of statutory regulations or legal proceedings. Your personal data will not otherwise be disclosed to third parties.
No creation of customer profiles
We expressly draw your attention to the fact that your personal data will not be collated to create customer profiles. This applies in particular to the use of personalised "Borussia Cards" (season tickets, customer cards). All we can do is determine how much business you have transacted with personalised "Borussia Cards" (e.g. for participation in bonus programmes).
You will be sent e-mail newsletters only if you have expressly marked or clicked this option whilst providing your data. If you no longer wish to receive e-mail newsletters in future you can cancel your subscription at any time by using the link provided at the end of each newsletter.

Your right of access to and correction and deletion of personal data
Furthermore, you are entitled to demand information about which personal data has been collected and the purpose of its storage at any time. You can also have inaccurate information corrected or data deleted that is not lawful or no longer necessary to store. Please contact the address shown below to assert the aforementioned rights.
