Version 29.03.2024

1 Scope of application

1.1 These Terms of Service apply to the use of the "Prematch" app from PREMATCH Sports GmbH, Rathenauplatz 9, 50674 Cologne, Germany.

1.2 These Terms of Service do not apply to the relationship between the user and a different platform operator if the corresponding app has been distributed via this platform (e.g. the aApp sStore). However, they apply in addition to the respective provisions of the respective platform operator.

2 Registration and login

2.1 Most parts of the Prematch app can be used without registration. The user relationship between the user and Prematch is established by downloading the app and accepting the general Terms of Service. In some cases, the origin of the download is tracked during the first use in order to analysze acquisition campaigns.

2.2 Registration is required to use some additional functions. In this case, the extended user relationship between the user and Prematch is established by properly completing the registration process. Proper completion of the registration process includes, in particular, the truthful provision of all required data. Prematch reserves the right to check the data before activation and to activate it separately. After Prematch has checked the data, users will receive a confirmation email with an activation link. Activation of the account constitutes free use.

2.3 The access code and password must be treated confidentially, protected from access by unauthorized third parties and not passed on to third parties.

3. Description of services

3.1 Prematch generally makes its app available to users free of charge. Prematch reserves the right to impose restrictions, conditions and to discontinue the service without giving reasons or notifying users. In principle, there is no legal entitlement to use of, activation of or participation in the Prematch app.

3.2 There is no claim against Prematch for the availability of the service. Prematch will endeavor to offer the services as uninterruptedly as possible. However, even with all due care, impairments to the service cannot be ruled out. Due to maintenance work and/or further development of the services, usage options may be restricted and/or temporarily interrupted. As a result, it cannot be ruled out in individual cases that users' entries may be lost.

3.3 The operation of the Prematch App requires the use of commonly used and up-to-date technologies in order to operate the website, web app or mobile app. The functionalities of the app can only be used to their full extent if the users also use these technologies and enable their use through the app. The use of older technologies or technologies that are not in general use may prevent the use of the app or only allow limited use.

3.4 Prematch reserves the right to change, supplement, remove or discontinue the information and services provided in the Prematch App as a whole at any time and without notice.

3.5 Prematch accepts no liability for the accuracy and completeness of the content in the Prematch App. Prematch does not check the posted content in advance, but only after discrepancies or legal violations have been pointed out.

3.6 Prematch calculates a fictitious market value for all adult players in the adult area (unless they have expressly objected to this). The market values are determined using various publicly available parameters (if known):

  • In a first step, a base value is formeddetermined based on the current league level of the players. The higher the league, the higher the respective base value. This base value is then adjusted based on the historical divisions in which the players have played in recent seasons.
  • In a second step, the team's performance data (goals scored, goals conceded, fair play rating) as well as the position and age of the players are taken into account. This is based on the consideration that, for example, a young player has greater development potential than an older player and his market value should therefore be higher if the other parameters are the same.     
  • In a third step, individual performance data from the players' last ten matches is then included in the assessment. For all players, it is taken into account whether they were in the squad, were in the starting eleven, how long they played and whether they led the team onto the pitch as captain. In addition, the performance data included differs according to position: for goalkeepers, the goals conceded by the team are included, whereas for strikers, the goals scored are included in the market value.

3.7 Prematch makes no claim to the accuracy or realism of the market values provided and assumes no liability for them. Prematch also assumes no liability for the accuracy of the data displayed in the app. In addition, Prematch does not check the posted content in advance, but only after discrepancies or legal violations have been pointed out.

3.8 In addition, users can claim their player profiles for themselves and adjust certain data, such as their position, shirt number and team affiliation. This and also misuse by third parties can lead to errors in the data. Every user can correct errors in their data themselves within the scope of their access rights or inform Prematch of the inaccuracy of certain data in their own profile. If the data is demonstrably incorrect, Prematch will correct the data immediately. There are no further claims against Prematch.
