Data on Player Users is collected as he/she fills in a training diary where personal data is used to choose appropriate exercises. Also, registered coaches and officials of the same club or team can key into the register feedback, player assessments and test results on the Player Users. The data is used for the development and training of Player Users and improving the trainer-trainee interaction. All personal data collected or entered into the Service is user specific. Collected or entered User data is available to the User and his/her team’s coaches and officials registered as Users. On each team’s pages there is a list of those registered team and club coaches and official who have access to and can collected personal data. The list is available to the User. When the User is removed or removes him/herself of the team licence, the coaches and official registered as Users cannot see the data collected of him/her. In that case, the data concerning the User remains in the register, however, it will not be used. When the User joins a new team, the coaches and officials of that team registered as Users can see the data collected of the User. The User has at all times the right to prevent the transfer of his/her data when changing teams. He/she can also have entries concerning him/her removed by a written removal notice to the Service Provider. In case the User is under the age of 18, permission from the User’s guardian is needed upon registration for the collection and use of personal data. The guardian has the right familiarise themselves with the personal data of the minor User within the register. This is done by a written request to the Service Provider. Concerning personal data transfer and removal from the register, the guardian of a minor User has the same rights as the User.
The use of the HC Service content may be tracked at times e.g. by transferring cookies to the customer’s computer. The purpose of tracking is to collect information on how and when the HC Service is used. The information enables the improvement of the HC Service to better serve the customers. The information is also used to follow the number of visitors. The collected information cannot be used to identify an individual customer. In addition to the tracking, the User’s session information can be stored. The session information is stored on a server and removed as the User logs out of the system, or automatically by the garbage collection process. The session information enables e.g. logging in the HC Service.
