YOUR INFORMATION MAY BE TRANSFERRED TO AND MAINTAINED ON COMPUTERS LOCATED OUTSIDE OF YOUR STATE, PROVINCE, COUNTRY OR OTHER GOVERNMENTAL JURISDICTION WHERE THE PRIVACY LAWS MAY NOT BE AS PROTECTIVE AS THOSE IN YOUR JURISDICTION. IF YOU ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF SWITZERLAND AND CHOOSE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO US, FIFA TRANSFERS PERSONAL INFORMATION TO SWITZERLAND and elsewhere depending on the location of persons or entities who are permitted to process and/or access such data under the terms of Legal policy AND PROCESSES IT THERE. IN SUBMITTING SUCH INFORMATION, YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE TO THAT TRANSFER AND ANY RELATED PURPOSES.
The collection of information and how we use it
The main reason why FIFA collects information is to provide and improve our Website, services, features and content, to administer your account (together, the "Service") and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Website.
The information we collect from you
FIFA collects information when you register for an account. The information collected may include the following personal information: First name, middle name, last name, company name, position within the company, e-mail address, phone, mobile phone and fax number, address, town, county, ZIP code, Country, User ID, password and expiration date.
When you visit the Website we will, like many other websites, use "cookies" to collect information. Cookies are small data files, which are transferred to a computer's hard disk in order to memorise information like registration IDs and passwords. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has originated, the "lifetime" of the cookie and various values.
We further utilise session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Website, to better understand how you interact with the Website and to monitor aggregate usage by users and web traffic routing on the Website. Session ID cookies are, unlike persistent cookies, deleted from your computer when you log off from the Website and close your browser.
Please note that you can always choose to block cookies by updating your Web browser privacy settings. To do so, you will have to access the "Help" menu in your browser's menu bar and search for the term "cookies". Please however take note that, if you block cookies, you may not be able to use all sections of the Website or all functionality of the Service.
How we use your information
We use the information about you for the following general purposes: to provide you with the Service you request, to manage your account, to communicate with you in general, to respond to your questions and comments, to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and as otherwise described to you at the point of collection.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to FIFA. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, or login password in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
The data collected through the Website is owned and controlled by FIFA and may be transferred or disclosed only to third parties working for or on behalf of FIFA and only for the purposes mentioned herein.
FIFA may send information about you to other companies or people only when:
- a) we have your consent to share the information; or
- b) we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; or
- c) we provide the information to companies who work on behalf of FIFA under confidentiality agreements; or
- d) we respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process; or
We want you to feel confident about using the Website. For that reason, we have implemented reasonable technical and organisational measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorised access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your information for improper purposes.
If you communicate with FIFA by e-mail, you should note that the secrecy of Internet e-mail is uncertain. By sending sensitive or confidential e-mail messages or information which are not encrypted you accept the risk of such uncertainty and possible lack of confidentiality over the Internet.
Updating/deleting your information
You may review, correct, update, or change or delete your personal information at any time by accessing your account on FIFA Digital Archive. We will attempt to accommodate your request for deletion if we do not have any legal obligation to retain the record.
Links to Other Sites
If any part of the Website links to other Web sites, those Web sites do not operate under this Legal Policy. If you choose to visit an advertiser or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's web site. We do not exercise control over third party websites and therefore recommend you examine the privacy statements posted on these other Web sites to understand their procedures for collecting, using and disclosing personal information.
Changes to this legal policy
This policy may be amended from time to time. If we amend the Legal Policy in any way we will place an updated version on this page of the Website and notify you by posting a prominent announcement on the Website or send an e-mail to all users.
Jurisdiction and applicable law
This policy and all matters arising out of or related to this policy shall be governed by the substantive laws and principles of Switzerland, without regards to conflicts of laws and principles thereof.
Any controversy, claim or dispute between you and FIFA arising out of or relating to this policy shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Commerce (Handelsgericht) of Zurich, and each party hereby irrevocably consents to the jurisdiction and venue of such Court.
