In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested.

In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.
Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we offer participation in promotions, conclusion of contracts or similar services together with partners. You will receive more information on this when you provide your personal data or below in the description of the offer.

§ 4.1 Usage of Google Forms
In order to simplify the process of onboarding new members (i.e. application for a membership) and also to prepare our “Global Crypto Football Club”, we use the service called “Google Forms”. Access to the Google Forms data is limited to the Board Members of the Association. In the Google Forms used by us, you will find a reference to this Data Protection Declaration.
For the specific use-case of the preparation of the “Global Crypto Football Club” – we collect images (i.e. your profile picture) for preparing a so called “Non-fungible-Token (NFT)” – the image submitted by you is modified using graphic filters (e.g. transformation to “comic style” – and then embedded into the final NFT. The basis for processing of this image information is your consent, which will be documented in aforementioned Google Form or obtained via a different channel (e.g. direct message in Discord / Twitter). Due to the fact that the blockchain is immutable, please take note that the image (which is stored in the IPFS) and the reference to the NFT cannot be eliminated once the creation of the NFT has taken place.
§ 5 Objection to or revocation of consent to the processing of your data
If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you may revoke this consent at any time. Such revocation affects the permissibility of the processing of your personal data after you have expressed it to us.
Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you, which is shown by us in each case in the following description of the functions. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will review the situation and either discontinue or adjust the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.
