Black Card Lottery Privacy Notice

At Black Card Lottery we take the protection of Personal Data seriously. In this Privacy Notice we’ll explain what Personal Data we collect from you, how we use and share that data, how we keep your Personal Data safe, and how long we keep it for. We’ll also explain how we Process your data (and the Legal Basis for doing so) and help you to understand your Personal Data Rights.

What do we mean by Personal Data?  

Personal Data is any information that could be used to identify you. That could be anything from your name and address, your bank details, your email address, an image or recording of you, your IP address or any other data that could be used to identify you. Occasionally we collect and process another type of Personal Data called Special Category Personal Data. 

What do we mean by Special Category Personal Data? 

Special Category Data is Personal Data of a sensitive nature. We only collect Special Category Data in specific circumstances. Normally this would be if you ask to self-exclude from gambling and where you choose to share information with us about your gambling habits. As a responsible lottery we use data about your exclusion status and play behaviour to make decisions about whether participating in the Lottery is in your best interests. If we have concerns, you will be unable to play.
