Privacy Policy for SMS Texts – Gillette Stadium, Marketing & Events

Effective  January 25, 2022

Introduction

Kraft Sports and Entertainment LLC (“Company”, “us” or “we”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through compliance with this SMS privacy policy (“policy”).

This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you use the SMS text messaging system (our “SMS System”) and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information.

This policy applies to information, including information relating to you in identified or identifiable form (your “personal information”) we collect through the SMS System.

It does not apply to information collected:

  • In e-mail and other electronic messages (other than SMS text messages) between you and us.
  • Through mobile and desktop applications you download from websites which provide dedicated non-browser-based interaction between you and such website.
  • When you interact with our advertising, mobile applications or desktop applications through third-party websites and services, unless such advertising or applications include links to this policy.
  • By us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by Company or any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries); or
  • By any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries), including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on any website operated by Company or third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries).

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our SMS System.   If you are an EU resident, you may choose to exercise certain other rights (see Provisions Applicable to European Union Residents).  If you are a resident of California, you may choose to exercise certain other rights (see Your California Privacy Rights).  By accessing or using the SMS System, you agree to this privacy policy. This policy may change from time to time (see Changes to our Privacy Policy). Your continued use of our SMS System after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

Children

The SMS System is not intended for children under 13 years of age (or such legally required higher age of children being lawfully able to provide consent). No one under age 13 (or such legally required higher age) may provide any information to, through or on the SMS System. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are under 13 (or such legally required higher age), do not use or provide any information on the SMS System or on or through any of its features or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 (or such legally required higher age) without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child, please contact us at privacy@gillettestadium.com

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via text is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our SMS System. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.

Provisions Applicable to European Union (EU) Residents

The provisions below up to the section entitled “Changes to Our Privacy Policy” relate to residents of the European Union.  Under applicable data privacy laws, the Company may be a data controller and a processor with respect to your personal information.

Some of the personal information you provide to us may include health information or other sensitive or special categories of personal information (defined under applicable data privacy laws.)  We do not process sensitive or special categories of data without your express consent or otherwise as permitted by the data privacy laws.  We protect your personal information through appropriate technical and organizational security measures in compliance with applicable law.  Although we make good faith efforts to store the information we collect in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security.  Further, while we work to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.

Under applicable data privacy laws, our lawful processing grounds include consent, our legitimate interests in operating and improving the SMS System, public interest and contractual and legal necessity.  In particular, we process your personal information on the basis of our legitimate business interest pursued by the Company and its affiliates to manage any technical issues or support requests that may arise, to comply with our reasonable business-related obligations and requirements and to comply with our legal and contractual requirements.  Furthermore, our legitimate interests or those of a third party include our requirements to use your personal information in litigation or for our legal purposes involving the Company and /or its affiliates and may also include the need to transfer your personal information to countries without adequate data protection laws compared to those in your country of residence (including the United States where the Company is located).  In this event, we will take reasonable steps to protect your personal information as required by the data privacy laws.

Retention of Your Personal Information

We retain your personal information relating to the use of our SMS System for the duration of our business relationship and for up to seven years after our last communication for legal, regulatory, audit and tax requirements. Further, your personal information may be stored by Company or its designee (including without limitation a data warehouse or other storage system selected by Company) within the legal limitation period during which claims against the Company or its affiliates may be asserted. After this period has expired, your personal information relating to your use of the SMS System will be deleted.

You have certain rights regarding your personal information, as described below, which are subject to applicable data privacy laws:

  • you have the right to access your data;
  • you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time for personal information that is processed on consent (the withdrawal shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal);
