WHY DO WE NEED THIS DATA?

RESCUEBET processes your data to provide you with the full functionality of the services offered on RESCUEBET’s website and to meet legal obligations imposed on RESCUEBET and/or to implement a perfectly legitimate purpose of data processing consistent with your rights. These are the data processing security, fraud and money laundering prevention and marketing services.

RESCUEBET is obliged to process data on the basis of various legal provisions and current legislation. These include tax regulations, anti-money laundering regulations and other regulations regarding licensed operators issued by supervisory authorities.

In addition, your data may be used by RESCUEBET for the following purposes:

  1. To provide you with services covered by the operation of RESCUEBET’s website.
  2. To provide personalised marketing information about the services that you order from RESCUEBET or that may interest you, e.g. RESCUEBET can send you emails or display pop-up messages about RESCUEBET’s services and updates.
  3. To communicate with users of RESCUEBET’s services.
  4. To enable participation in interactive services, tournaments, and promotions in general.
  5. To notify you about changes regarding our services.
  6. To improve or modify RESCUEBET’s services and policies.

  8. For tax, legal and billing purposes.
  9. For billing purposes as defined by EU law (GDPR).
  10. For any purposes provided by law, including counteracting money laundering attempts.
  11. To profile and personalise RESCUEBET’s marketing communications, offers and advertisements campaigns that RESCUEBET display on its website and third-party websites and/or services based on the combined data we have collected about you.

  15. To complete compliance procedures imposed to RESCUEBET.

RESCUEBET can profile your personal data collected to tailor our communications to your needs.

RESCUEBET does not use algorithms on your profiled data to make automated decisions that can affect your individual rights or any rights arising from the contract between RESCUEBET and you. I.e. RESCUEBET does not place automatic offers based on your behaviour in the games.

However, RESCUEBET is obliged by laws and license conditions to monitor its players to identify people who may be experiencing, or are at risk of developing gambling problems. Based on data describing unique players, a special algorithm provides us with an estimated probability of gambling addiction, allowing RESCUEBET to interact with such players to offer help or support. Decisions based on predictions are not made automatically without human intervention.



FOR HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA?

We will only keep your personal data stored for as long as is reasonably necessary to carry out the purposes and legal obligations outlined above in this Privacy Policy. This is in compliance with RESCUEBET legitimate interests in providing you with the full functionality of the services while abiding by the current legislation and specific regulations. These regulations set out that RESCUEBET can store your personal data for a period of ten years of you cease being a customer. After this period, RESCUEBET will either delete or anonymize your information – If deletion is not possible (because the data has been stored in backup archives) then we will securely store, isolate, and safeguard your information from any further use until deletion can be possible.

The main reasons we keep your personal data after you close your account are:

  1. To comply with legal obligations under EU/local laws (anti-money laundering regulations, fraud and/or licensing regulations).
  2. To establish or defend legal claims that could be made against us.

MARKETING PURPOSES

Where we have the appropriate consent (subject to your preferences) and/or lawful basis, our third-party marketing partners can process some of your personal data to allow us to communicate with all of our customers by phone, email, push notifications, SMS (by sending platform providers) and to inform about prizes and/or gifts from suppliers, etc.

Consent for this processing can be changed in whole or in part any time by going to “My Account” settings. If you need more information about this, let us know here.

All our marketing communications will include instructions on how to opt out of receiving specific types of marketing communications. It can take up to 48 hours for this to be fully carried out. We will not share your personal data with unrelated third parties to market their products to you without your prior consent.



Telephone Calls

Telephone calls to and from our Customer Contact Centre can be recorded for training and security purposes along with the resolution of any queries arising from the service you receive



TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION

The two-factor authentication adds more security to your RESCUEBET account.

Any attempts to log in to your RESCUEBET account from a new device or country will be followed up with a 6-digit authentication code sent to your mobile phone number or email address provided upon registration. You will be required to enter the generated code upon your login attempt. To do so, just write the code from your mobile SMS or email into the field “Token”.

This procedure will protect your account from unusual activity or potential third-party access by keeping unknown people away, even if they are in possession of your password. If for any reason you do not receive the verification code, please contact our Customer Support.

Sharing and Processing your Personal Data

RESCUEBET securely shares information with third parties that help RESCUEBET operate, provide, improve, integrate, customize, support and market its services. RESCUEBET will ensure that all relationships involving the processing of personal data are subject to a documented contract that includes the specific information and terms required by the GDPR.

RESCUEBET works with third-party partners and service providers to provide website and application development, games software, hosting, maintenance, backup, storage, virtual infrastructure, payment processing, analysis, and other services, which may require them to access or use information about you. These include also software suppliers, payment systems providers, entities dealing with RESCUEBET’s marketing efforts, entities segmenting users and/or dealing with users for RESCUEBET. If a service provider needs to access information about you to perform services on RESCUEBET’s behalf, they do so under close instruction from RESCUEBET, including policies and procedures designed to protect your information at all times.

If required by law, RESCUEBET may disclose your information to the Police or other public authority – this includes, but is not limited to the IP address and details of any suspected unlawful or dishonest activity, such as abuse of a given form of payment or security risk assessment.

We may share your Personal Data within the RESCUEBET Group and with these other organisations:

  • Law enforcement agencies, regulators, and other legal authorities.
  • Credit reference agencies.
  • Fraud prevention agencies.
  • Identity verification agencies.
  • Sports governing bodies.
  • Organisations that introduce you to us.
  • Third parties you ask or allow us to share your data with.
  • Third parties necessary to provide products or services you have requested.

DATA TRANSFERS OUTSIDE THE EEA

By agreeing to the transfer of your data to third parties, you also agree that third parties may be located outside the EEA. The privacy laws in these countries may not provide the same level of protection as in your country or EEA. Transfers of personal data outside the European Union will be carefully reviewed prior to the transfer taking place to ensure that they fall within the limits imposed by the GDPR. This depends partly on the European Commission’s judgment as to the adequacy of the safeguards for personal data applicable in the receiving country and this may change over time.

Intra-group international data transfers will be subject to legally binding agreements referred to as Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) which provide enforceable rights for data subjects. If RESCUEBET shares your data outside of the EEA, RESCUEBET will rely on standard EU contractual clauses or Privacy Shield Framework that legally allow you to transfer your data and provide the right level of protection.



KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

You have rights under the GDPR. These consist of:

  1. The right to withdraw the consent; however, this will not invalidate any previously consented processing.
  2. The right to be informed. You have the right to be informed about how your personal data is processed and why.
  3. The right of access. You have the right to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you.
  4. The right to rectify. Where personal data is inaccurate, you have the right to request a correction and also complete any incomplete personal data.
  5. The right to be forgotten. You can request us to erase your personal data where there is no lawful basis requiring us to continue processing this personal data. This right only applies in certain circumstances, given that legal obligations include data retention periods.
  6. The right to restrict/object processing. In certain circumstances, you have the right to object or restrict the processing of your personal data, where this processing is based on consent or our legitimate interest. However, despite your objections or wish to restrict processing, where there are compelling legitimate grounds or legal obligations, we would be required to continue said processing.
  7. The right to data portability. You have the right to request that your personal data be provided to you in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format (GDPR Article 20) and to transfer that data to another party. This applies to personal data for which processing is based on your consent and the processing is carried out by automated means.
  8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling. You have the right to not be subjected to automated decision-making when the decision has a significant effect on you; you can insist on human intervention where appropriate. You also have the right to express your point of view and contest decisions.
  9. The right to withdraw. You have the general right to withdraw the consent you have given us to process your personal data (in respect of our marketing activities) and where this processing is based on what we deem to be our legitimate interest.

Please note that RESCUEBET is subject to several EU/local regulations, therefore, some of these rights outlined above may not apply when the processing is:

  • Necessary for entering or performing a legal contract with you.
  • It is authorised or enforced by EU/local laws.
  • It is based on your explicit consent.

RESCUEBET is required by law to keep your personal data for a certain period after you cease to be a customer, this is based on current legal regulations on anti-money laundering. It's very important that you understand that we do everything in our power to comply with your requests but we are ultimately subjected to GDPR and other EU/local laws.

If you want to use one of your above indicated rights - please send it to legal@rescuebet.com
