Non-personally identifiable information and traffic analysis
Rivalry strives to make our website as user friendly as possible and easy to find on the internet. Rivalry collects data on how you use the site, which does not identify you personally. This includes information such as: the pages you browse through; websites that directed you to us; keywords you used to find us in search engines; your IP address; cookies (please see cookies section of this Notice) and other information. The non-identifiable data is analysed in order to make the website as user-friendly and as optimised as possible.
Cookies are small text files which are stored on a user's computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website.
This allows Rivalry to deliver a more personalised experience with pages tailored to a particular user. This leads to less keystrokes and a much quicker and more personal experience for you.
For example, during the registration process we collect information so we can recognise you as a customer the next time you login.
Cookies allow us to understand your preferences and to offer more relevant promotions. We also use them to collect statistics on the usage of our services and to ensure that our email tools are working correctly.
We may collect information about your computer, including (where available) your IP address, operating system, browser type and other individually identifiable data, for system administration, statistical and fraud prevention purposes. Such information may be used to uniquely identify users to prevent fraudulent activity and perform identity verification.
You can either accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers accept cookies by default but this can be set to decline cookies. The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. If you do decline cookies on your browser, you may not be able to experience all of the interactive features on our site.

How and why we use your personal information
We use your personal information in a range of ways that fall into the following categories:
- To provide you with the products or services you have requested;
- To meet our legal or regulatory obligations;
- To monitor our website performance; and
- To provide you with marketing information
Your rights over your personal information differ according to which category and lawful basis these fall into. This section provides more information about each category, the rights it gives you, and how to exercise these rights. These rights are in bold following each category.
Providing our products and services
We use your personal information to enable you to use our websites, to set up your account, and to provide you with customer service assistance.
To provide our products and services, we share your information with external organisations working on our behalf. Further information can be found in the Sharing Information section.
This category covers the essential activities required in order for us to provide you with the services you use or have signed up for. If you don’t want your information used in this way, your option is to not use our services and close your account.
Legal and Regulatory Requirements
We are regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission and to comply with their requirements, we carry out identity verification, fraud prevention and anti-money laundering checks when you create an account with us and throughout the life of the account.
We will use your scanned identification document and/or proof of address to check your details in order for us to protect our users from fraudulent behaviour and to promote responsible gambling.
We are required to carry out these activities to provide our products and services legally, responsibly, and in line with the requirements stipulated by regulators. We cannot provide you with our services without carrying out these activities, if you don’t want your information used in this way, your option is to not use our services and close your account.
To monitor our website performance
You have the ‘right to object’ to activities carried out for our legitimate interest if you believe your right to privacy outweighs our legitimate business interests. However, as the activities involved are central to our business, if you wish to object further than managing your cookies this may mean you need to close your account.
If you have given us your consent to do so, we will send you offers and promotions via email, SMS or online. We do not share your information with third parties for them to use for their own marketing.
You have the right to withdraw consent or update your marketing preferences at any time.
Your rights to rectification
If you believe the personal information we hold on you is incorrect, you have the right for this to be rectified. For any information that cannot be updated through My Account, please contact [email protected].
Your right to request a copy of your personal information
If you would like a copy of the personal information we hold about you, you should request it through live chat or by emailing [email protected] and we will provide you with a form to complete. The form is not compulsory but helps us to provide you with the information you are looking for in a timely manner. To ensure the security of your personal information, we will ask you for valid proof of identity and once we’ve received it, we will provide our response within one month. If your request is unusually complex and likely to take longer than a month, we will let you know as soon as we can and tell you how long we think it will take, such a request may also incur an administration cost.
Your right to complain to the regulator
If you believe your privacy rights have been infringed, or you disagree with a decision we have made about your privacy rights, you have the right to complain to the Isle of Man Information Commissioner. Further details can be found here. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the IOM ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
