For some functions, the app needs access to certain services and data of your device. Depending on which mobile operating system you are using, this part requires your explicit access permission. We explain to you - separately for each mobile operating system, for which we offer the app - which permissions are queried by the app and why they are necessary.
Push notifications: If you select OK in the request "allow push notifications", you allow the app to inform you about certain events and topics through push notifications (e.g. goals of your favourite team), even if the app is currently not in use. The notifications may be made by tones, messages and / or icons (an image or a number on the app). For more information about push notifications and your configuration options can be found under point 5.
Background Update: This feature allows the app to download and update data in the background, even if the app is not currently open or actively in use.
Mobile data: This function allows the app to download and update data outside of a wireless network via a mobile data connection (for example, GSM, UMTS or LTE).
Modify or delete the content of your USB memory, read content of your USB storage: These functions allow the app to store temporarily content on your device. This is necessary in order to provide content such as your selected favourite team, even if there is no internet connection at the moment. The app uses exclusively its own stored content. Other data on the USB memory will not be deleted, modified or read.
Find accounts on the device, use accounts on the device: These functions allow you to log-in easily in the app with your existing Google account.
Receive Internet data, complete network access, see network and Wi-Fi connections: These functions allow the app to receive data from the internet (such as news and live scores) and to check whether there is an internet connection via a wireless network or via mobile data connection (e.g. GSM, UMTS or LTE). This is to prevent that larger amounts of data may strain limited data volume.
Disable stand-by mode: The feature allows the app to disable stand-by mode on the device (e.g. for displaying videos without turning off the screen).
Enable and disable synchronization, read sync settings: This function enables the timely receipt of messages, such as push notifications about top news or a goal of your favourite club.
c) Windows Mobile
Access to your internet connection, use network services on your device, access to your browser, access your internet connection as server: These functions allow the app to receive data from the internet (such as news and live scores) and to check whether there is an internet connection via a wireless network or via a mobile data connection (e.g. GSM, UMTS or LTE). This is to prevent that larger amounts of data may strain limited data volume. Additionally this function allows a periodically update and delivery of new app data (e.g. live-tile info), which the user can activate or deactivate in the system settings.
Use anonymous Microsoft account: Allows the app to use an anonymous Microsoft account to identify the user. This permission simplifies the user login procedure in the app via a Microsoft account.
Use music, use currently played media elements: These functions allows the app to reproduce music (e.g. live reporting) and films.
Send push notifications: This feature allows the app to inform you about certain events and topics through push notifications (e.g. goals of your favourite team), even if the app is currently not in use. For more information about push notifications and your configuration options can be found under point 5.
Use stored date on external storage device: This feature allows the app to save temporarily content on the memory card of your device. This is necessary in order to provide content such as your selected favourite team, even if there is no internet connection at the moment. The app uses exclusively its own stored content. Other data on the memory card will not be deleted, modified or read.
The Onefootball apps use social plug-ins (hereafter “plug-ins”) from various social networks. With the help of these plug-ins, you can, for example, recommend content to a friend or use the sharing functions. In our app, we use the following plug-ins (not operated by Onefootball): Facebook, Twitter, and your email program on the operating system iOS.
On the operating systems Android and Windows Phone, additional plug-ins may be used and include all installed apps with a sharing function (e.g. LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, etc.). If you want to use one or more of these services, you must register in the respective provider. Please check the privacy policies of these third-party plug-in services Facebook, Google+, Twitter for information on the purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of your data, as well as your rights in this respect and changing settings options in order to protect your privacy.
We are using advertising technologies within the apps, for which we collect and process the Apple advertising ID (IDFA) on iOS devices, the Google advertising ID on Android devices and the advertising ID to Windows Mobile devices to provide personalized advertising and evaluate their use. The advertising IDs are unique, but non-personalized and non-permanent identification numbers for a specific device, which are provided by the operating systems. The data collected with these IDs are not linked to other device-related information. Hereinafter we explain - separately for each mobile operating system, for which we provide the app - how to enable or disable these advertising technologies.
Open "Settings" on your iOS device and select the menu item "Privacy" and then the sub-item "Advertising". If you activate the option "No Ad Tracking", we can only perform limited measures such as the determination of the unique use ("unique user") or fraud prevention. In the same menu you can delete the IDFA ("Reset Ad-ID") at any time and a new ID is then created which cannot be merged with the previous collected data.
Open "Google Settings" on your Android device and select the menu item "Ads". Activate the "Opt out of Ads Personalization” to prevent the creation of profiles and the display of personalized advertising. In the same menu you can delete the your advertising ID ("Reset advertising ID") at any time and a new ID is then created which cannot be merged with the previous collected data.
c) Windows MobileOpen "Settings" on your Windows Mobile and select the menu item "advertising ID". If you select "Off" we can only perform limited measures such as the determination of the unique use ("unique user") or fraud prevention.
By using the app Onefootball collects statistical data. However, this data can at no time be associated to your person. This data collection serves to improve Onefootball and to provide you as user with the most extensive functionality possible.
For this purpose we use so-called web beacons which can be explained as simple programming codes that let us know when the app has been displayed or which parts in the app have been clicked on. To this end, Onefootball uses the service of Google Analytics for the web-app (by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). For the mobile apps on iOS and Android we are using the services of Flurry Analytics (by Yahoo, 701 First Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94089, USA), adjust.io (by adjust GmbH, Saarbrücker Str. 38a, 10405 Berlin), Localytics (by Localytics, 8th Floor, 101 Arch St, Boston, MA 02110, USA) and MoPub (by MoPub, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA). The data collected by these counting methods tools are collected anonymously. A connection between your data and your person through these systems cannot be drawn.
You can disable these services if no longer wished to participate in the analysis by Onefootball:
