AN OVERVIEW OF DATA PROTECTION
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The website operator processes the data collected on this website. The operator's contact details can be found in the website's required legal notice.
How do we collect your data?
Some data are collected when you provide it to us. This could, for example, be data you enter on a contact form.
Our IT systems collect other data automatically when you visit the website. These data are primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system or when you accessed the page. These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website. By submitting your player account details in our back office, you agree that RakeRace.com will share and request your personal information such as username, nickname, email address, and further personal data with our affiliated poker rooms and operator.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure the website's proper functioning. Other data can be used to analyze how visitors use the site.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You always have the right to request information about your stored data, its origin, its recipients, and the purpose of its collection at no charge. You also have the right to request that it be corrected, blocked, or deleted. Furthermore, you can contact us at any time using the address given in the legal notice if you have further questions about the issue of privacy and data protection. You may also, of course, file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities.
You can object to this analysis. We will inform you below about how to exercise your options in this regard.
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g., via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Therefore, complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
You have the right to have data that we process based on your consent or fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked, or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on personal data.
We expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements about sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.
DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. However, other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows data processing to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g., after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
You can register on our website to access additional functions offered here. The input data will only be used to use the respective site or service you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise, we will reject your registration.
To inform you about important changes, such as those within the scope of our site or technical changes, we will use the email address specified during registration.
We will process the data provided during registration only based on your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will continue to store the data collected during registration for as long as you remain registered on our website. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
We collect, process, and use personal data only insofar as it is necessary to establish or modify legal relationships with us (master data). This is done based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows data processing to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract. In addition, we collect, process and use your personal data when accessing our website (usage data) only to the extent required to enable you to access our service or to bill you for the same.
Collected customer data shall be deleted after completing the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator is interested in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can prevent these cookies from being stored by selecting your browser's appropriate settings. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google and processing these data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Objecting to the collection of data
You can prevent collecting your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics.
Outsourced data processing
We have entered into an agreement with Google to outsource our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the European data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic data collection by Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about site visitors' age, gender, and interests. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. Therefore, this collected data cannot be attributed to any specific person. You can disable this feature by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Refusal of data collection".
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. A conversion tracking cookie is set when you click on an ad served by Google. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for the user's personal identification. However, should the user visit certain website pages and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator is interested in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
Suppose you would like to receive our newsletter. In that case, we require a valid email address and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected voluntarily. We only use this data to send the requested information and not pass it on to third parties.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription, when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g., email addresses for the members' area) remain unaffected.
PLUGINS AND TOOLS
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. Your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly when you open a page.
For this purpose, your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. Furthermore, the use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of our website's uniform and attractive presentation. This constitutes a justified interest according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
