    Our Privacy and Data Policy

    Unless you live in a cave, you’ll have received a lot of e-mails recently. They will all have told you that you need to do something by May 25th. Chances are that it’s been along the lines of “Click this box if you want to go on receiving our e-mails.” (And even if you do live in a cave, someone’s probably tapped on your rock and said, “You need to chisel your name on this tablet of stone…”)

    Why?

    The reason is GDPR – the General Data Protection Regulation. It’s a new piece of legislation from the European Union that affects companies or organisations that hold data about EU citizens – whether they are inside or outside the EU.

    We’re no exception – and so we’ve set out below our privacy and data policy: why we collect your data, what we collect, how we keep it and what we’ll do if you don’t want us to hold that data any more.

    The GDPR regulations are complicated. We’ve done our best to simplify them, and make them as readable as possible. But if you still have questions when you’ve finished reading them, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

    So what’s GDPR?

    It’s a regulation in EU law dealing with data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also covers exporting that data outside the EU – so if, for example, you’re an American company and you deal with EU citizens’ data, you have to comply with GDPR. Its primary aim is to give individuals much more control over their personal data, and it came into effect on Friday May 25th 2018.

    The regulation requires ‘processors of data’ – essentially, companies and organisations – to disclose what data is being collected, why it’s being collected, how and why it is processed, how long it is retained for and whether it is shared with any third parties.

    Let’s dive into the detail…

    The Data Protection Officer

    The DPO is going to be an important person in most companies and organisations. Any public authority or business who regularly process personal data must have a Data Protection Officer who is responsible for ensuring compliance with the GDPR regulations, and reporting any data breaches within 72 hours if they impact on user privacy.

    Who are we?

    First things first: who are we? We’re essentially a review and information site. Our aim is to give you all the information you need to make the best possible choice when you’re deciding on an online casino to sign up with. We do that by regularly researching all the casinos and games providers out there, writing what we hope are helpful reviews and negotiating special offers, bonuses and “freebies” on your behalf. In short, we’ll help you choose an online casino, and help you obtain the best possible offers from that casino.

    Supposing I want to contact you?

    No problem at all: we’d be happy to hear from you.

    If you have a general question about the site, then contact us at [email protected]

    If you have an online casino that you’d like us to feature, then contact our commercial team on [email protected]

    Finally – and most importantly – if you have a question about your personal data then you should contact our Data Protection Officer, whose email address is: [email protected]

    The data we hold about you

    We couldn’t operate effectively or efficiently if we didn’t hold some personal data – but we give you the option to decide what data we hold. We do this by splitting our data into two distinct categories: Population Metrics and Personal Information.

    Population Metrics

    This is data which is completely anonymised – and cannot be “reversed” in any way to reveal your identity. Let me explain how it works.

    Assume you visit our site for the first time. When you do that, we automatically assign a random number to you, which is stored in a cookie (a small piece of information) on your browser. You get a cookie for each page you visit. Next time you visit our site – assuming you haven’t deleted your cookies – the process starts again.

    Why do we do this? Because tracking what pages people visit and how they move from page to page is important to us. But it is the anonymous, aggregated data that is important. We do not track individual visits – but if you want to opt out of our population metrics, you can do that by following the information here:

    Personal Data

    We only collect personal data in one case – when you actively opt-in to our newsletter. Then we collect your e-mail address, and that’s all we collect. As you probably know, we will send you a verification e-mail. Once you reply to this, we start the process of sending you regular e-mails. However, if someone does not reply to the verification e-mail within two weeks, then we delete your e-mail from our list.

    If you feel that you would like to opt-out of the e-mails you receive from us then you can do this in one of two ways:

    Click on the unsubscribe button that is on every e-mail we send you

    Or, e-mail our DPO and ask to be unsubscribed. The address is [email protected]

    In both cases, we will remove you from our e-mail list, and remove any data that we hold about you.

    If you are unsure as to whether you are on our e-mail list, then you can find out by e-mailing our DPO on the address above.

    Active Campaign

    Like the vast majority of companies and organisations, we use an external company to send our e-mails and monitor such exciting data as open rates and clicks on any links in the e-mail. The company we use is called Active Campaign and if you need to know any more about them, this link takes you to their website: https://www.activecampaign.com/

    How does it work?

    Once you sign up to our e-mails, your e-mail address is securely stored with Active Campaign. When one of our marketing managers has written an e-mail, they use the relevant information on Active Campaign to send it out. Active Campaign monitors the response stats for us and, as above, every e-mail will give you the option to unsubscribe should you no longer wish to hear from us.

    A table!

    At this point we have summarised “the story so far.”

    The table lists all the data we collect, the processing we do, who can access the data, how long they hold it for and who collects the data. Remember, if you have any questions on this – or any aspect of our data collection – then please do not hesitate to contact our DPO.

    Your rights: our obligations

    GDPR gives you certain rights and imposes certain obligations on us, and all companies and organisations that handle your data. At any point while we are in possession of your data you can take the following action:

    You can exercise your “right to be forgotten”

    Yes, I know it sounds like Blofeld on a bad day. “I will exercise your right to be forgotten, Mr Bond…”

    What it means though is exactly that. You can ask us to delete all the data we hold on you. We will do that, and pass on your request to any relevant third-party vendors, within 28 days of your request.

    You can ask that we stop processing your data

    In this case we will stop using your data and anonymize all the data we hold on you. Again, we will pass your request on to any third-party vendors within 28 days of you making the request.

    You can request access to your data

    In this case we will send you an e-mail file with all the data we have collected about you. Please note that we may need to verify your identity and/or contact details before we send this out: in such a case our DPO would contact you to obtain any necessary information.

    You can ask us to correct your data

    If you think some of the data we hold about you is wrong, or incorrect, you can ask that we correct that data. As above, we will also pass on the request to relevant third-party vendors.

    You can impose restrictions on the processing of your data

    It is fair to say that we already restrict our data processing to the bare minimum. As we’ve explained above, it is the aggregate of data that is important to us, not individual data. However, GDPR puts you in control of how your data is used and should you wish to impose any further restrictions on how we use your data then we will comply with that request.

    You can object to profiling and/or direct marketing

    Sometimes we deliver special offers or marketing initiatives on our site. We do this because we believe the offers will be of benefit to our site users – however, should you prefer not to see them then we will respect your wishes and take the necessary action.

    Finally, you can ask that we move your data to a third-party location

    …And like all the points above, we’ll be happy to comply with your request.

    Complaints

    If, for any reason, you want to complain about the way in which we have handled your data then please contact our DPO with your complaint.

    Similarly you should also contact our DPO to access any of the rights we have listed above – or if you simply want to confirm that we are doing our very best to protect your data, and that we are using it in the correct way.

    That’s it…

    Thank you for reading this far. We appreciate that GDPR is a complicated subject, but we have done our best to make it as simple as possible. Rest assured that we have always taken our obligations regarding your data very seriously, and we will continue to do in the future. We’ll work as hard on that as we do on bringing you the best casino reviews, offers and incentives.
