2. Purposes of processing personal data
We collect and process your personal data for the following purposes:
performance of the Agreement and fulfilment of the obligations contained therein – processing is necessary to conclude and to fulfil Our obligations laid down in the Agreement,
performance of legal obligations – processing is necessary to fulfil one or more legal obligations pertaining on Us,
to pursue various legitimate interests, such as security, preventing and investigating any offence against Us, public relations and customer relations management, and/or defence of legal or other claims.
2.1 Processing for other purposes
In principle, personal data is only processed for the purposes for which it was collected. However, personal data may also be processed for other purposes if they are compatible with the original purposes or if doing so is necessary for legal reasons.
3. Data retention
Your data will be stored for the duration of the Agreement and, following the termination of the Agreement, your data will be stored in line with the requirements laid down by the applicable laws (notably without limitation tax regulations) and in order to establish, defend and/or exercise legal claims.
4.Legal basis for data processing and data transfer
As a licensed Swiss casino, We are particularly subject to Swiss laws and ordinances concerning gambling and thereto related services, such as the Federal Act on Gambling, Federal Act on Combating Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism and the Code of Obligations, which require Us to collect and process your personal data. In addition, We process your personal data for legitimate interests and the necessity for the performance of the Agreement.
5. Disclosure and transfer of personal data
Notwithstanding the aforesaid, We may disclose your personal data in cases where We are required to do so by law, regulation or as a result of a request from an authority (police, tax office or other authorities) to disclose personal data. We may also disclose your personal data in cases where We suspect that a crime has been committed.
5.1 Third parties
Your personal data may, for the purposes described above, be transferred or disclosed to carefully chosen third parties, for example for the subsequent purposes:
Business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors, to ensure the performance of the Agreement We enter into with you, e.g. processing payments and managing the business relationship with you.
5.2 Within the Group
5.3 Transfer of personal data
We always strive to process personal data within Switzerland, the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) as far as possible. In cases where it is necessary to transfer personal data outside of Switzerland or the EU/EEA, e.g. for the purpose of disclosing personal data to a data processor who, either themselves or through one of their subcontractors, stores personal data in a country outside of Switzerland’s borders or the EU/EEA or has its subsidiaries in a country outside of Switzerland’s borders or the EU/EEA, We take the necessary and adequate legal, technical and organisational measures to ensure that the level of protection corresponds to that of Switzerland. When personal data is transferred to a country outside of Switzerland’s borders, the level of protection is determined either by the list of countries maintained by the Data Protection and PR Officer, and containing countries with adequate data protection legislation, or by the fact that the company is linked to Switzerland via the ‘Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework’. Other suitable safeguards are approved codes of conduct in the recipient country and the application of internal, binding company guidelines.
