In addition to that, your data may be used by Elite for the following purposes:

1.  To provide you with services covered by the operation of the Elite website.

Based on data describing unique players, a special algorithm provides us with an estimated probability of gambling addiction, allowing Elite to interact with such players to offer help or support. Decisions based on predictions are not made automatically without human intervention.

 

2.3. FOR HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA?

We will only keep your personal data stored for as long as is reasonably necessary to carry out the purposes and legal obligations outlined in this Privacy Policy. This is in compliance with Elite legitimate interests in providing you with the full functionality of the services while abiding by the current legislation and specific regulations.

These regulations set out that Elite can store your personal data for a certain period after you cease being a customer, due to legal and license provisions imposed to us. After this period, Elite will either safely delete or anonymize your information – If deletion is not possible (because the data has been stored in backup archives) then we will securely store, isolate, and safeguard your information from any further use until deletion can be possible.

 

3. MARKETING PURPOSES

Where we have the appropriate consent (subjected to your preferences) and/or lawful basis, some of your personal data can be processed by our third-party marketing partners to allow us to communicate with all our customers by phone, email, push notifications, SMS (by sending platform providers) and to inform about prizes and/or gifts from suppliers, etc.

Consent for this processing can be changed in whole or in part at any time by going to ‘My Account’ settings. If you need more information about this, let us know by contacting the support.

All our marketing communications will include instructions on how to opt out of receiving this specific type of marketing communications. It can take up to 48 hours for your request to be fully carried out. We will not share your personal data with unrelated third parties to market their products to you without your prior consent.

5.1. SHARING AND PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Elite securely shares information with third parties that help Elite operate, provide, improve, integrate, customise, support and market its services. Elite will ensure that all relationships involving the processing of personal data are subject to a documented contract that includes the specific information and terms required by the GDPR.

Elite works with its third-party partners and service providers to provide website and application development, games software, hosting, maintenance, backup, storage, virtual infrastructure, payment processing, analysis, and other services, which may require them to access or use information about you. These include software suppliers, payment systems providers, entities dealing with Elite. If a service provider needs to access information about you to perform services on Elite's behalf, they do so under close instruction from Elite, including policies and procedures designed to protect your information at all times.

If required by law, Elite may disclose your information to the police or other public authority – this includes, but is not limited to the IP address and details of any suspected unlawful or dishonest activity, such as abuse of a given form of payment or security risk assessment.

We may share your Personal Data within the Elite Group and with these other organisations:

• Law enforcement agencies, regulators, and other legal authorities.
• Credit reference agencies.
• Fraud prevention agencies.
• Identity verification agencies.
• Sports governing bodies.
• Organisations that introduce you to us.

• Third parties necessary to provide products or services you have requested.
• Third parties allow us to comply with the affordability rule (if applicable).

 

5.2. DATA TRANSFERS OUTSIDE THE EEA

By agreeing to the transfer of your data to third parties, you also agree that third parties may be located outside the EEA. The privacy laws in these countries may not provide the same level of protection as in your country or EEA. Transfers of personal data outside the European Union will be carefully reviewed prior to the transfer taking place to ensure that they fall within the limits imposed by the GDPR. This depends partly on the European Commission’s judgement as to the adequacy of the safeguards for personal data applicable in the receiving country and this may change over time.

If Elite shares your data outside of the EEA, Elite will rely on standard EU contractual clauses which allow the transfer of your data and provide the right level of protection. 

 

6. Data Subject Rights

Under the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to access, rectify, port and delete some of your data. You also have the right to object to and restrict certain processing of your data. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things such as the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs.

You may exercise any of the rights described in this section before your Data Controller and Payments Data Controller by sending an email to [email protected] . Please note that we may ask you to verify your identity before taking further action on your request.

Please be aware that whilst we will try to accommodate any request you make in respect of your rights they are not absolute rights. This means that we may have to refuse your request or may only be able to comply with it in part.

6.5. WITHDRAWING CONSENT AND RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING

Where we have specifically requested your consent to process your personal data and have no other lawful conditions to rely on, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time by changing your Account settings or by sending a communication to [email protected] specifying which consent you are withdrawing. Please note that the withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of any processing activities based on such consent before its withdrawal.

6.6. OBJECTION TO PROCESSING

You have the right to object to processing where lawful basis is that it is in our legitimate interests, but please note that we may still process your personal data where there are other relevant lawful bases or where we have compelling grounds to continue processing your personal data in our interests which are not overridden by your rights, interests or freedoms;

You have the right to be informed about how your personal data is processed and why.

5. The right to be forgotten.

You can request us to erase your personal data where there is no lawful basis requiring us to continue processing this personal data. This right only applies in certain circumstances, given that legal obligations include data retention periods.

6. The right to restrict/object processing.

In certain circumstances, you have the right to object or restrict the processing of your personal data, where this processing is based on consent or our legitimate interest. However, despite your objections or wish to restrict processing, where there are compelling legitimate grounds or legal obligations, we might be required to continue said processing.

7. The right to data portability.

You have the right to request that your personal data be provided to you in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format (GDPR Article 20) and to transfer that data to another party. This applies to personal data for which processing is based on your consent and the processing is carried out by automated means.

8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

• It is authorised or enforced by EU/local laws.
• It is based on your explicit consent.

Elite is required by law to keep your personal data for a certain period after you cease to be a customer, this is based on current legal regulations on anti-money laundering. It's very important that you understand that we do everything in our power to comply with your requests but we are ultimately subjected to GDPR and other EU/local laws.

If you want to invoke any of your rights please contact our support by describing your request.
