Where we store your personal data
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Legal basis for processing
If you are from the EEA, our legal basis for collecting and using your Personal Data will depend on the Personal Data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will normally collect and use Personal Data from you where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data-protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. Typically, our legitimate interests include improving, maintaining, providing, and enhancing our technology, products, and services; ensuring the security of the services and our Website; and for our marketing activities.
If you are a Subscriber, we may need the Personal Data to perform a contract with you. In some limited cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect Personal Data from you, for instance, if we (as a gaming lead generation Website) are required to obtain gaming licences in order to provide our services.
If we ask you to provide Personal Data to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contact with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your Personal Data is mandatory or not, as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your Personal Data.
Where required by law, we will collect Personal Data only where we have your consent to do so.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your Personal Information, please contact us (please use the Contact Form).
Generally speaking you have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us (please use the Contact Form).
You have the following data protection rights:
- To access, correct, update, or request deletion of your Personal Data. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the data we collect is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and up to date. You may contact us directly at any time about accessing, correcting, updating, or deleting your Personal Information, or altering your data or marketing preferences by contacting us (please use the Contact Form) or updating your subscription settings on the Website. We will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.
- If you are a resident of the EEA, you can object to processing of your Personal Data, ask us to restrict processing of your Personal Data or request portability of your Personal Information. Again, you can exercise these rights by contacting us (please use the Contact Form).
- Similarly, if we have collected and processed your Personal Data with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Data conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
- You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your Personal Data. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws. We may ask you to verify your identity in order to help us respond effectively to your request.
Access to information and retention
You can request access to the information held about you at any time by contacting us (please use the Contact Form) or by email using ‘privacy (at) returntoplayer.com’.
We retain Personal Data where we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so, and the retention periods vary. In general, terms, because Subscribers have controls to administer their Personal Data we would retain the data until they remove/alter it, retract consent to the processing and use, or until they close their Website account. For other aspects of Personal Data, particularly Visitor Data and Personal Data not directly provided we would consider:
- Whether we have a legal or contractual need to retain the data.
- Whether the data is necessary to provide any services on our Website.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Data, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
