We collect information from you when you submit a form or register on our site.
When submitting a form or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name, e-mail address, mailing address or phone number. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
The primary use of data collected from the site is to enable us to adjudicate on the dispute or disputes that you wish us to resolve.
We retain information relating to disputes that we have considered in order to provide statistical information to interested parties, to fulfil our reporting duties in line with Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) regulations, to help inform our adjudication process and to train our employees and representatives. We take guidance from the Gambling Commission, both as regulator of the UK gambling industry and IBAS’s nominated ADR Competent Authority on appropriate lengths of time to store and retain dispute data.
We are conscious that every dispute considered by IBAS has the potential to progress to a court hearing and our approach to retaining and responding to requests to delete personal data in accordance with the 2018 Data Protection Act will always take this factor into account.
Additionally, any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. With your permission, we will use your name and account username/number and/or disputed bet or transaction numbers to identify you and your dispute to the gambling operator counterparty. We will not release your address or other contact details to any commercial entity, without your expressed permission (e.g. to allow the company to send you a cheque).
We may release information relating to you and your dispute to fulfil a legitimate requirement by any appropriate legal or regulatory authority where requested in connection with a specific investigation or enquiry. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Legislation introduced in May 2018 was designed to provide consumers with a clearer understanding of their rights in relation to personal data.
