Our Legal Obligations. We will comply with the terms of applicable data protection regulations for the relevant licence through which you access and use our Service (as such regulations may be amended from time to time), including in particular, General Data Protection Regulation (EU) No 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regards to the process of personal data and on the free movement of such data ("GDPR") and any other valid and applicable legislation (collectively, GDPR and all such laws shall be referred to herein as "Applicable Law"), when processing your personal information. Your personal information may also be processed or transferred by us to other members of our group of companies, our affiliates, our agents and third parties providing services to us, in jurisdictions outside of the Isle of Man, Malta and the European Economic Area. In this event, we will comply with the terms of Applicable Law which ensure that personal data is only transferred to such jurisdictions which comply with the various adequacy requirements for data protection as set out in Applicable Law or as otherwise authorised under Applicable Law.
Our processing of your personal information will primarily be necessary for us to provide you with the Service. On occasion we may ask for your consent to processing personal information in a discrete manner, in this instance your personal information will be processed in accordance with such consent and you will be able to withdraw this consent in writing at any time. By way of example, your consent will be needed in order to send you marketing and promotional communications.
Please note that we will not share your data with companies outside of our Group for them to use for their own marketing purposes. This restriction does not apply to the Sky Betting and Gaming as we may share your data with them and they may contact you regarding their products and services which fall under our combined Group. Opting out of marketing for any products and services provided by TSG will not affect your marketing preferences on Sky Betting and Gaming.
Fulfilment of a contract, compliance with a legal obligation
It may also be necessary for us to process your personal information where it is necessary for the performance of a contract (such as the End User Licence Agreement when you open a Stars Account) or in order for us to comply with our various legal and/or regulatory responsibilities, including, but not limited to, complying with the conditions of our gambling licences and complying with any anti-money laundering legislation.
Finally, we may also process your personal information where we deem such processing to be in our (or a third party's) legitimate interests and provided always that such processing will not prejudice your interests, rights and freedoms. Examples of us processing in accordance with legitimate interests would include: (i) where we disclose your personal information to companies in our Group following a restructure or for internal administrative purposes; (ii) where we identify certain companies that can offer you additional benefits to our Service or provide us with valuable information about your use of our Service; (iii) detection and retention of information pertaining to those with responsible gambling issues. Note that if you self-exclude yourself on any of our Sites for responsible gaming reasons, such restrictions may be extended to or be replicated on accounts that you may hold with Sky Betting and Gaming (as may be applicable). We will share information about your self-excluded status within the Group in order to help with the identification of individuals who may be at risk of problem gambling and may take suitable action where necessary; (iv) processing for the purposes of ensuring network and information security, including preventing unauthorised access to our electronic communications network; (v) safeguarding the integrity of sports by combating suspicious betting patterns as well as reporting and sharing information related to such patterns; (vi) adhering to regulatory and statutory requirements; (vii) devising a tailored reward scheme for players.
If you are unsure about your rights or are concerned about how your personal information may be processed you should contact the Office of the Information and Data Protection Commissioner (see Clause 17). If you contact us in relation to your rights we will do our best to accommodate your request or objection. Please note, however, that not all rights are absolute.
