1. Introduction

Kansino as part of the Play North Group (the “Casino”) processes a wide range of Personal Data in relation to its users of the online services and service providers. The Casino is committed to comply with the rules and requirements regarding the Processing of Personal Data under applicable data protection legislation.

The European Union Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the Processing of Personal Data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”) and all the applicable national data protection laws, such as the Estonian Personal Data Protection Act and the Estonian Personal Data Protection Implementation Act, the Dutch GDPR Implementation Act or the Maltese Data Protection Act (“DPA”) apply to the processing operations of the Casino.

The EU Directive 2002/588/EC of the European parliament and of the Council of 12 July 2002 concerning the Processing of Personal Data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector (“ePrivacy Directive”) as implemented into national law, imposes special rules and requirements in respect of storing of information into end users’ terminals (e.g. cookies) and direct marketing.

This Kansino Privacy Policy (hereafter the “policy”) applies to the Casino as a whole and may be subject to review annually or as so required.

Definitions of this policy are the same of GDPR and Directive 2018/1972. Capitalized terms shall have the same meaning as uncapitalized, masculine includes feminine and vice versa, singular includes plural and vice versa.

2. Compliance with data protection requirements

In order to be able to demonstrate compliance with the applicable laws, the Casino has to adopt and maintain internal polices and implement measures which meet the principles of data protection established by data protection legislation.

3. Identification of Controller

Play North LTD, having Maltese company number C86563 is your data controller (“Controller” or “we”). Play North OU, having Estonian company number 12767675, and Play Services B.V., having Dutch company number 83631119 are your data processors.

4. Lawfulness of Processing – Legal basis

The Controller must process data in a legal manner which also means that we need a basis for processing your data. The legal basis that we use are listed below:

a) Legal Obligation: this applies every time a law or a regulation binds us to process your data.

b) Contract: when using our services you are agreeing that we process your data to participate in the games of chance. This is a contract that you have with us which consists of the terms and conditions available on our website.

c) Legitimate interest: from time to time we may elect to process your data for generic purposes. In such cases we will balance your rights and freedoms and those of others so that the outcome is the most legitimate as possible.

d) Consent: when you agree to a specific processing with a written affirmative declaration and in a manner which is clearly distinguishable from the other matters, in an intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language.

e) Public interest: in certain cases (such as the Maltese Prevention of Money Laundering and Funding of Terrorism Regulations) we must pursue the common good and process your data to achieve that goal.

5. Consequences of you not providing the personal data we need
