Consent

As a customer, you explicitly consent to Mountbet processing and disclosing your personal information and other data, as explained above or in Mountbet´s General Terms and Conditions, by registering with Mountbet or logging onto your account on Mountbet´s website.

In addition, by consenting to this Privacy Policy, by use of Mountbet´s site or otherwise, the customer agrees that Mountbet may store and use historical data relating to the customer and/or his account for the purposes outlined in this Policy.

Using your information in accordance with Data Protection Laws

Data Protection laws require that we meet certain conditions before we are allowed to use your data in the manner described in this privacy policy. We take our responsibilities under data protection laws extremely seriously, including these conditions. To use your personal data, we will reply on the following conditions:-

  1. Mountbet is obliged to comply with applicable guidance provided by any relevant regulatory body and has obligations under applicable legislation, including gambling, betting and gaming law and anti-money laundering/fraud legislation. In particular, we will need to process your personal information to verify your identity, establish your age and your source of funds for the purposes of combatting money laundering, fraud, terrorist financing, bribery, corruption, tax evasion, the provision of financial or other services to persons who may be subject to economic or trade sanctions and to establish whether you have self-excluded from using our services (or those of other gambling operators). Failure to provide the requisite personal information on sign-up / as you use our site or services, will unfortunately mean we cannot provide our services to you, as to allow you to use our service would mean we would be in breach of our legal obligations. You will not be able to object to processing or ask for the deletion of your personal information insofar as it falls under this category.
  2. When you enter into a transaction with us, a contract between you and us will have been entered into. In order for us to fulfil our obligations under such contract (e.g. to allow you to place a bet and pay out winnings), we will need to collect and process your personal information. Failure to provide the requisite personal information on sign-up and financial information on entering into the transaction or objecting to this type of processing / exercising your deletion rights will unfortunately mean we cannot provide our services to you. This will also be the case where you (as a sole trader) or the business you work for has entered into a contract with us and we need to process your information in order to manage and administer such contract.
  3. We may send you marketing messages across our platforms such as email, text messages, telephone, direct mail, social media, inbox messaging, push notifications about us and our site, services and offers where you have not unsubscribed or managed through the preference centre, and where you have placed a bet or purchased other services from us. We provide easy ways to stop our marketing, and you can opt out at any time. If you are not a customer of ours but have provided us with consent to use your details for marketing purposes, then we may also contact you about our site, services and offers. If you have confirmed that you would like to hear from us about other party’s goods and services then we will use your details to contact you with marketing information about such party’s goods and services. If you have confirmed that you would like to hear directly from a third party (including other members of our Group) about such party’s goods and services then we will share your details with such third party so they can contact you about their goods and services. In each of the situations above, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and can object to processing of this nature. Where you consent to us sending you marketing information, we will treat this as lasting for 24 months unless we tell you otherwise at the time. We may also use consent as a basis for processing some of your personal information in respect of job applications, for example in carrying out criminal records checks. In some cases, we may do this without your consent if it is necessary for a particular role.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

The customer may at any time request a copy of his personal information held by Mountbet.
