Use and storage of your personal information
When you supply any personal information to a Bingo Entertainment operated website (e.g. for reviews, competitions or any other user contributions on a Bingo Entertainment operated website) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use such data. We must collect the information fairly; that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
We must collect the information fairly; that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to Bingo Entertainment will only be used within Bingo Entertainment and by its agents and service providers. However, we reserve the right to disclose any third party material or information where we are obliged or permitted by law. If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to Bingo Entertainment or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on Bingo Entertainment, Bingo Entertainment reserve the right to remove such content and/or can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met. For safety reasons, however, Bingo Entertainment may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of Bingo Entertainment Community services indefinitely. Where personal information is held for people who have taken part in other Bingo Entertainment services (e.g. competitions), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you are notified by us that your information may be used to allow Bingo Entertainment to contact you for “administrative purposes” or “promotional offers”, this means that Bingo Entertainment may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that a particular service has been suspended for maintenance. We will not contact you for promotional purposes, such as notifying you of improvements to the service or new services on Bingo Entertainment unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information.
