We,, take the protection of your personal data seriously, and would like to take this opportunity to inform you about data protection in our company. We are a Florida, US based company, but have users from all over the world with great interest in college sports in the United States. In order to adhere to the highest data protection standards, we have committed to the national, as well as to the most stringent European data protection legislation – as described below.

As part of our responsibility under data protection law, the entry into force of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/279; hereinafter “GDPR”) has imposed obligations on us to protect the personal data of persons affected by processing (we also refer to these as “users” or “data subjects”). Insofar as we decide on the purposes and means of data processing either alone or together with others, this primarily includes the obligation to transparently inform you about the type, scope, purpose, duration and legal basis of the processing (consequently Art. 13 and Art. 14 DS-GVO).

Data processing differs between visitors and registered users of the website. If you visit this website as a non-registered user, little happens to your personal data. However, as a registered user (see C.) or if you consciously contact us, e.g. write us an e-mail, for example via the contact form or the service mailbox, more data processing takes place. Therefore, our following data protection declarations have a modular structure. First of all, under A. General, we want to name, for example, those responsible and inform you about your rights. Under B. Visiting the website and C. Use of services, we explain the data processing in these cases.

Please note that registration is only possible from the age of 13. Please also see our Terms and Conditions (§ 3.3 Link to terms of use )

6. Social media

We do not use any social media plugins on our website. If our website contains symbols from social media providers (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook), we only use them for passive linking to the respective provider’s website.

You can find more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the social provider in the data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy. The responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation of these services lies with the respective social media provider.

7. Integration of YouTube videos
We have included YouTube videos in our online service, which are stored on and are playable directly from our website.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit.f GDPR in order to make our website more interesting for visitors and users and to be able to transport content better. The integration of YouTube is based on a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. by Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If you call up a corresponding link on our website, a direct connection will be established between your browser and the YouTube server. This gives YouTube the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. Only when you play the video will data be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer. This takes place, regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account, via which you are logged in, or if no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be assigned to your profile on YouTube, you must log out there before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or requirements-oriented design of its website. ​Such evaluation also takes place (even for users who are not logged in) for the purposes of providing customized advertising and informing other social network users about activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise it.

You can find more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube in their privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA.

We use the Google RECAPTCHA function on our website to check and prevent automated access (by so-called bots). This service enables Google to find out on which website, at what time and with which IP address a request is being sent. Furthermore, the user behavior is evaluated in order to be able to distinguish human users from bots (e.g. mouse or touchpad movements, the time spent on the website, language settings and browser plug-ins, etc.). The legal basis for using Google RECAPTCHA is a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1, p. 1, lit. f of the GDPR. The legitimate interest here is the security of our website, in particular the defense against undesired, automated access and inquiries by bots, such as spam.

This service is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The parent company is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Further information can be found at The Google Ireland privacy policy is available at

9. Hotjar
We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users’ experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices. This includes a device’s IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and the preferred language used to display our website. Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf. For further details, please see the ‘about Hotjar’ section of Hotjar’s support site.
