International personal data transfers

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Some of the data processors engaged by bet365 to process personal data within the terms established in this Privacy Policy may be based outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Such treatment of details by these agencies is necessary for us to grant you our services. Therefore, by browsing the Website and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our (or our suppliers or sub-contractors and providers) processing your personal data outside the EEA. In the case of not agreeing with this data treatment, we will not be able to provide you with our services. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your information and personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as established in the current data protection law at all times.

Disclosure of Information

We, like all other licensed gambling operators in Spain, are obliged to share the information we hold on you (including personal data and betting history) with the Spanish regulator, sporting bodies and other bodies, in order to investigate fraud, money laundering or sports integrity issues.

In order to comply with bet365's legal and regulatory established requirements and bet365's own internal risk management procedures, we will store personal data for a period of ten years from the closure of your account. All such information will be held in accordance with this Privacy Policy, applying all procedures and security measures required by relevant legislation.

Access rights, rectification, cancellation and opposition

The client can execute their access, opposition, rectification and cancellation rights via an e-mail to privacidad@bet365.es. Any execution of rights will need the user to be correctly identified. Therefore it is necessary that the copy of the identification document which is submitted and the request are valid.

We will at all times facilitate the exercise by you of all of your rights to the extent permitted and required by Spanish gaming and data protection legislation. Please note, however, that legislation does not allow the operator to cancel certain customer registration data for a determined period of time.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy in order to adapt to new practices which we may conduct and to comply with any legal or jurisprudential changes which may take place. Any changes we may make to our Privacy Policy in the future will be posted prominently on this page. If we make any material or substantial changes to this Privacy Policy we will use reasonable endeavours to inform you by email, notice on the Website or other agreed communications channels in order to obtain your agreement to the modified Privacy Policy. A failure by any customer to accept such modified Privacy Policy will result in such customer being unable to continue to use the Website and will result in the closure of such customer’s account.
