Information We Get From External Companies
To help us comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, when you fund your account (in the UK) we share information with a Credit Reference Agency called Experian Limited who process your data in accordance with their Credit Reference Agency Information Notice (CRAIN - available here) and will provide us with data and insight that is based on your outstanding credit commitments – in short, we will received your EDI (Estimated Disposable Income).
Whilst we will receive your EDI we do not receive data about your credit standing or ‘credit score’ and the check we undertake WILL NOT affect your credit score.
To comply with our various regulatory requirements, we carry out checks during account funding and throughout the life of your account to ensure our customers bet/play responsibly and legally. Depending upon the level of activity on your account we may refresh our checks multiple times within a year.
Sometimes we need to undertake additional checks to verify information or, once an account is active, to investigate activity that could indicate a risk. To do this we use organisations and databases which collate information and make it commercially available for use in crime prevention and detection, the promotion of safer gambling and ensuring the fair use of services.
We also look at publicly available information to verify things like occupation status or property ownership, and at social media. For UK based customers, we use data you provide to us to enquire whether you have self-excluded from using gambling services by checking the national scheme run by GAMSTOP. We run this check on a daily basis so we can ensure any self-exclusion request is picked up and then applied across our service.
We may in future subscribe to similar national self-exclusion schemes in any of the countries in which we operate, and we will update this policy to let you know.
Like many companies, from time to time we may supplement the information we hold about you with data from companies such as Experian that collate and update address and household information from a range of sources and make it commercially available. This helps us keep our records up to date, fill gaps in our data, complete affordability checks and learn more about our customers so we can continue to improve our products and services.
We will only work with reputable organisations that obtain their data legally in accordance with data protection law.
