We value trust and reliability as much as our users do. This is why we ensure that the protection of personal data is a top priority and one of our core principles as a service. We therefore process personal data on our website strictly in accordance with the applicable legal provisions and, in particular, with the latest requirements outlined by the EU General Data Protection Regulation, hereafter referred to as GDPR, applicable throughout the European Union. Please read our data privacy statement carefully.
The following data protection information provides information on the type and scope of the processing of what is known as personal data. Personal data is information that is or can be directly or indirectly attributable to your person. The data processing via our services can essentially be explained as follows:
- We use data to optimise the services found on GambingUK for the purposes of providing you with a better overall browsing experience.
- We use data to ensure that any trusted third-party we work with can help us build a product that our users would be interested in and one that specifically meets user expectations and needs.
As per he requirements outlined in the GDPR, you are entitled to multiple online data rights, including “the right to be forgotten”, which allows you to request that all and any data collected by the Site during your browsing session is erased from our databases.
As a matter of principle, we process personal data only in accordance with the applicable statutory storage and safekeeping obligations or until the respective purpose ceases to apply, or if the processing is no longer required.
How Do We Collect Your Data?

Cookies – General information
When you visit our website, we use what are known as session cookies to identify that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are deleted automatically after you leave our site. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can, however, configure your browser in such a way that cookies are not stored on your computer, or that a notification appears each time before a new cookie is set. The complete deactivation of cookies can, however, result in reduced functionality of our website, and you may not be able to use all functions on our website. How long cookies are stored for depends on their purpose, and is not the same for everyone.
Storage Duration and Deletion of Data
Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, or you revoke your consent. In addition, storage can take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator under EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. If the storage purpose no longer applies, you revoke your consent, or a storage period prescribed by the European regulator or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion of a contract or fulfilment of a contract.
Right to Object
Under the conditions of Article 21, Paragraph 1 of the GDPR, data processing may be objected to for reasons arising from the specific circumstances of the data subject.
The general right to object mentioned above applies to all processing purposes described in this data privacy statement which are carried out on the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit. f of the GDPR. In contrast to the special right to object to data processing for advertising purposes (see above), we are only obliged under the GDPR to act on a general objection if you provide us with reasons as to why it is so important (e.g. a possible danger to life or health). In addition, you may also contact the regulatory authority which we fall under.
All data transmitted by you personally, including payment data, is done so using the generally accepted and secure standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is a secure and proven standard, which is also used for online banking, for example. You can identify a secure SSL connection, among other things, by the additional “s” on the http (https://…) in the address bar of your browser, or by the lock symbol at the bottom of your browser.
We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored by us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties.
