Thank you for your interest in the services of Force8, Zurich – hereinafter referred to as “My Ice Hockey”. As a software company, data protection is of a particularly high priority for My Ice Hockey. The use of the Internet pages of My Ice Hockey is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services provided by our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number 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 My Ice Hockey. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the Force8 has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through its Internet pages. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means.
Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
- a) 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.
- b) data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
- c) Processing
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
- d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing
- e) Profiling
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
- f) Pseudonymization
Pseudonymization 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 separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- g) Controller or person responsible for processing
The controller or data processor 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. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
- h) Processor
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.
- i) 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.
- j) Third Party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
- k) Consent
Consent is any expression of will in the form of a declaration or other unambiguous affirmative act, given voluntarily by the data subject for the specific case in an informed manner and in an unambiguous manner, by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2 Name and address of the data controller

Tel.: +41 79 441 41 10
E-Mail: info (at) force8.net
3 Name and address of the data protection officer
The data protection officer of the controller is:

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our Internet pages can be optimized for the benefit of the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our Internet pages. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our Internet pages.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our Internet pages at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our Internet pages may be fully usable.
5 Collection of general data and information
The Internet pages of the Force8 collect a series of general data and information with each access by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. 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 our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our 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 our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Force8 does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our Internet pages correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of our Internet pages and the advertising for them, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our Internet pages, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Force8 analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, statistically, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
6 Contact possibility via the Internet site
Based on statutory provisions, the website of the Force8 contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, 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. No disclosure of such personal data to third parties will take place.
7 Routine deletion 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 insofar as this has been provided for by the European Directives and Regulations 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 will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
8 Rights of the data subject
- a) Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Body, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
- b) Right of access
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain at any time from the controller, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. In addition, the European Directive and Regulation Legislator has granted the data subject access to the following information:
- the purposes of processing
- the categories of personal data processed
- the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organizations
- if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration
- the existence of a right to obtain the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning him or her, or to obtain the restriction of processing by the controller, or a right to object to such processing
- the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
- if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: Any available information about the origin of the data
- the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organization. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information about the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller.
- c) Right of rectification
Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to request the immediate rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration – taking into account the purposes of the processing.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
- d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following grounds applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
- The data subject revokes his or her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Art. 9(2)(a) DS-GVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DS-GVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DS-GVO.
- The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
- The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) DS-GVO.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange for the erasure of personal data stored by the Force8, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Force8 will arrange for the erasure request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data have been made public by the Force8 and our enterprise as the controller is obliged to erase the personal data pursuant to Article 17 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation, the Force8 shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, with regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform other data controllers which are processing the published personal data, that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers to erase all links to the personal data or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of the Force8 will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
- e) Right to restriction of processing
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the Force8, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Force8 will arrange the restriction of the processing.
- f) Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Force8.
- g) Right to object
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
Force8 shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the Force8 processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to Force8 to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Force8 will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the Force8 for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of the Force8 or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
- h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject’s explicit consent, the Force8 shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject’s involvement, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
- i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation-maker, to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
9 Data protection during applications and the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example, by e-mail or via a web form located on the Internet pages. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
10 Web analysis tools
In order to constantly improve and optimize our Internet offering, we use so-called tracking technologies. Web analysis tools provide us with statistics and graphics that give us information about the use of our Internet pages. In the process, data about the use of an Internet page is transmitted to the server used for this purpose. Depending on the provider of a web analysis tool, these servers may be located abroad. For the most commonly used web analysis tool, Google Analytics, this data is transmitted including shortened IP addresses, which prevents the identification of individual devices. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement and has registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce for the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield (information on the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/Swiss-US-Privacy-Shield-FAQs). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google. A transfer of this data by Google to third parties only takes place on the basis of legal regulations or within the framework of order data processing.
If other web analysis tools are used within Force8, the data collection process is basically the same.
You can prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). For more information on Google Analytics and data protection, please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.
11 Social Plugins
Our Internet pages use social plugins, e.g. from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing or Google. The plugins are marked with the logo of the provider and can be, for example, Like buttons or a Google button or Twitter button.
When you call up our Internet pages that contain such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the provider’s computers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by the offering site directly to your browser and integrated by it into the Internet page. By integrating the plugins, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our Internet page. If you are logged in to the provider at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your profile. If you interact with the plugins – for example, by clicking the “Like” button or posting a comment – the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the provider and stored there.
If you do not want the provider to collect data about you via our website, you must log out of the provider before visiting our website. Even when logged out, the providers collect data anonymously via the social plugins and set you a cookie. This data can be assigned to your profile if you log in to the provider at a later time.
For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing of your data by the provider, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the privacy notices of the providers.

12 Legal basis of processing
Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2 DS-GVO).
13 Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
14 Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the performance of the contract or the initiation of the contract.
15 Legal or contractual requirements 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
We 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 us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company 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 one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or 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.
16 Existence of automated decision-making
We do not use automated decision-making.
Should individual parts of this agreement be invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the rest of the agreement. Due to the further development of our website and offers on it or due to changed legal or official requirements, it may become necessary to change this data protection declaration. The current data protection declaration can be accessed and printed out at any time at www.myice.hockey.
This data protection declaration is valid from: 04 March 2019
