If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO or Art. 13 para. 1 DSG or Art. 31 para. 1 nDSG serves as the legal basis for the processing. This applies, for example, to marketing, unless you have objected to the use of your data for marketing purposes. Legitimate interests may include, in particular, further:

- Operation and administration of the website;
- The provision of services and/or information intended for you;
- The prevention and detection of fraud and crime;
- The processing of personal data for administrative purposes;
- Assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims;

- Informing the public and interested parties;
- Carrying out direct marketing activities.

We have many of the following data because you have provided them to us (e.g. via registration etc.). If you conclude a contract with us by obtaining a service, you must provide certain data on the basis of your contractual obligation, such as master data. If it is behavioral or preference data, you may object to the data processing or not give your consent to it.

Data processing for the realization of the running event
For the registration and execution of the running event, only the surname, first name, year of birth and address as well as the e-mail address are required from the runners as mandatory data. Further data is only collected on a voluntary basis and only if it is necessary for the provision of a further service. We process this data for the purpose of carrying out the running event, including delivery of information about your participation and the starting documents (digital starting package) as well as a feedback request after the run. The processing is carried out for the execution of the contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO or Art. 13 para. 2 lit. a DSG or Art. 31 para. 2 lit. a nDSG) that you have concluded with us, as well as on the basis of an overriding or legitimate interest (administrative purposes; Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO or Art. 13 para. 1 DSG or Art. 31 para. 1 nDSG) of us. Creation and publication of start and ranking lists The name, first name, year of birth, place of residence, category and running time will be published in starting lists and ranking lists. A publication of the complete address does not take place. At the event, times will be recorded at various points as the runner passes by and electronically assigned to the runner crossing by means of a transponder. From this data set, lap and/or course times are determined for the runners and result lists are created from this. These data will be published during and after the event on site and on the internet as well as in print media if necessary. The publication of the rankings on the Internet takes place on the website of the organizer and on the website of the timing providers (Datasport), as well as integrated into the Swiss Athletics ranking list.

The publication of the data serves the comparison of the participants among each other, which is typical for competitions. The data is processed based on a legitimate interest (information of the public and interested parties; Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO or Art. 13 para. 1 DSG or Art. 31 para. 1 nDSG). The runner can request that his or her name be removed from the publicly viewable results list after the end of the event.
