Data Privacy Notice

Your privacy is important to us. We therefore process personal data on our website strictly in accordance with the applicable legal provisions and, in particular, in accordance with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: GDPR), applicable throughout Europe. We would like to inform you in the following about the processing of personal data carried out by us in accordance with this regulation (see Article 13 of the GDPR). This Privacy Notice is meant to help you understand our privacy practices, including what Personal Data we collect, why we collect it, what we do with it, and how we protect it, as well as your individual rights. This site provides links to other websites. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of all sites that you visit, including those whose links are provided so that you can understand how those sites collect, use and share your information. This site is not responsible for the privacy statements, content or data handling practices on other websites.


1. The Use of Cookies

We use what are known as cookies on our website. Our interest in optimising our website can be deemed to be legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. Cookies are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device, nor do they contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware. The cookie stores information that results in conjunction with the specifically used device. This does not mean, however, that we will gain immediate knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies serves to make the use of our services more enjoyable for you.

When you visit our website, we use what are known as session cookies to identify that you have al-ready 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.


2. Personal Data and Anonymised Data

The following data protection information provides information on the type and scope of the pro-cessing of what is known as personal data. Personal data is information that is or can be directly or indirectly attributable to your person.

What is personal data?

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). This includes information such as your name, address, IP address or email address. Information that is not directly associated with your real identity (such as favourite websites or the number of users of a site) is not included.

What is anonymised data?

Each time you access the content of our website, general information is automatically stored (e.g. number and duration of users of individual sites, etc.). This information is not personal because it does not relate to an identified or identifiable individual, i.e. there is no way we can associate the infor-mation with any particular individual. The data is therefore processed in an anonymised form. Infor-mation of this kind is gathered for purely statistical purposes, and is used by us for the optimisation of our Internet services.

The data processing via our services can essentially be divided into two categories:

  • All necessary data will be processed by bestbettingsites.co.uk for the purpose of providing our services, in particular for the operation of our platform. In this way, we can ensure that we offer our visitors the best possible service. If third parties, e.g. partner sites, providers of online gaming, subcontractors, etc. are involved in the provision, your data will be passed on to them to the extent necessary in each individual case.
  • When the website is accessed, various pieces of information are exchanged between your device and our server. This may also involve personal data. The information col-lected in this way is used, among other things, to optimise our website or to display advertising in the browser of your device.

In accordance with the requirements of the GDPR, you have various rights which you are able to assert. This includes, among other things, the right to object to se-lected data processing, in particular data processing for advertising purposes. The ability to object is emphasised in the printing process. Should you have any questions regarding our data protection information, please feel free to contact us at any time. You will find our contact details below.

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 ceas-es to apply, or if the processing is no longer required.


3. Data Security

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.


4. Data Processing Purposes, Legal Bases and Legitimate Interests pursued by bestbettingsites.co.uk or a Third Party
