This policy explains how and why we process the personal information you provide to us. It explains in what circumstances we will pass your personal information to third parties and gives a summary of your rights.

  • your mobile phone number, if you are a business user;

We will only collect and process the personal information that: 

  • you give to us directly; or

We do not seek or collect personal information about you from publicly available sources or third party databases.

We do not collect or process any sensitive personal data about you. Sensitive personal data is data which relates to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs and genetic data. 

 

4. Why do we need this information? What will we do with this information? 

We need your information for the following reasons: 

To provide you with the Gamban product: To set up an account with us so we can deliver the product to you and take payment. This account also allows you to manage your user settings and provide us with updates to your personal information when circumstances change. 

To keep you updated: To provide you with: 

  • important information regarding the product during your subscription that is relevant to the operation of the Gamban product and to deliver any helpdesk functions to you;
  • notifications, to advise you that your subscription is due to come to an end. Our systems will generate automated messages to you to flag when your subscription with us is ending so that you can determine whether or not you wish to renew your subscription. If you do not renew your subscription with us, the Gamban product will cease to operate within your operating system and access to gambling websites will return.

 

Without the information listed in section 3 of this policy we will not be able to provide you with the Gamban product. 

We may also have a justifiable reason to hold the personal data you provide to us. For example: 

Keeping internal records: in order to manage our account with our customers we will need to keep internal records of the persons who have access to Gamban. This is also needed to ensure we comply with our legal obligations. 

Conducting analysis in order to develop the Gamban product: we may conduct statistical analysis in order to better understand how Gamban is used. It is important to us that we can, where possible, improve the products and services we offer.  This includes using information like the country that you are based in to offer product developments specific to your region.  We also analyse whether you signed up for Gamban using a promo-code or voucher.  When we undertake analysis in this way, any data is aggregated and anonymised to ensure that we cannot and do not identify individual users. 

Recording calls: if we need to speak with you to resolve a problem, we may record the call for training and monitoring purposes. This helps us improve the quality of the service we provide to you.

We will only share your personal information with the following third parties in the specific circumstances outlined below: 

  • organisations that have specific functions stipulated by law (such as a regulatory body, a statutory body, the police  or a competent authority). We will share your personal information with these bodies where we’re obligated by law or regulation to disclose information to them;
  • a company to whom our business is to be sold or transferred (in whole or in part). Our company may, from time to time, change ownership or control.

  • third parties where you have expressly agreed we can share your personal information with them; and
