Retaining and deleting personal data

This section sets out our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data.

Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.

We will retain and delete your personal data as follows:

  • Profile data containing personal data will be retained for duration of user subscription via Patreon.
  • Cookie data will be retained for no longer than 30 days.

Notwithstanding the other provisions of this section, we may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

Your rights

In this section, we have summarized the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

Your principal rights under data protection law are:

  • the right to access;
  • the right to rectification;
  • the right to erasure;
  • the right to restrict processing;
  • the right to object to processing;
  • the right to data portability;
  • the right to complain to a supervisory authority
  • the right to withdraw consent.

You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional
copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. Provision of such information will be subject to:

  • the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).

You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are
exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require
personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary
for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.
If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables MGR Gaming features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify whether you are signed into your account, determine what currency and prices to display (for example: ZAR), and secure your access to our site. Cookies also help us to serve relevant ads to you on trusted third party websites and provide a more personalised experience.

WHEN DOES MGR GAMING PLACE COOKIES?

We use cookies on our site and mobile app. Any browser visiting MGR Gaming site and every device using our app will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit sites that host our adverts and content (for example our affiliate partners or Facebook).

WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DOES MGR GAMING USE?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return To MGR Gaming or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by MGR Gaming when you return to our site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session) and are used to keep track of any interaction you make with our site during your visit (such as adding an item to your basket).

HOW WE USE COOKIES?

We use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling our services to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). Our cookies do many jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, delivering more targeted advertising, and generally improving your experience on our website.

We use the following categories of cookies:

Strictly Necessary Cookies: We use Strictly Necessary cookies in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing your account, purchasing video games and displaying correct prices and availability. Without these cookies, the site will not function correctly.

These cookies are a mixture of First and Third party cookies.

We use Targeting and Advertising cookies for the purpose of managing and analysing the performance of adverts, displaying adverts to you once you have left our site, and building user profiles to determine the display of advertising elsewhere. These are predominantly Third party cookies.

WHAT IS DO NOT TRACK (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser
settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to date. As such, MGR
Gaming does not generally respond to “do not track” signals, but you can at any time change your cookie preferences in our cookie settings.

HOW ARE COOKIES USED FOR ADVERTISING PURPOSES?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting, understand and improve our service, and know when you have seen our content.
Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by MGR Gaming may also set third party cookies.

If you are logged in on a website or app or another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third party partner site of MGR Gaming and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behaviour) and log data (such as your IP address), will be associated by us with your account.
