- Your correspondence with customer service (email, phone and/or chat conversations relating to any matters you have registered with our customer service).
- Data collected via social networks/media (provided that you have an open/public account/profile, i.e. not restricted your settings to private).

For what purposes do we process your personal data?
We use the personal data listed above for the purpose of:
- Administrating and managing our customer relationship, i.e. providing our games and services to you.

- Conducting know your customer investigations (e.g. verifying identity, age, address and if you are a politically exposed person) and other investigations during the customer relationship (e.g. an in case your accumulative withdrawals exceed a certain amount) for the purpose of preventing and mitigating fraud and complying with anti-money laundering legislation and applicable licence requirements (e.g. by verifying source of wealth, creating suspicious activity reports and disclosing such reports to relevant supervisory authorities).
- Sending you marketing material, e.g. information about new services and promotions that we believe you may find of interest based on promotions and services you have taken part in (e.g. if you have received, read and acted on an email, sms or ad).
- Customizing the marketing material and your website experience, e.g. by recommending relevant games/services and presenting you with targeted bonus offers and similar. Such customization is based on gaming history and promotions and services you have taken part in (e.g. if you have received, read and acted on an email, sms or ad).

Legal basis for our processing
Most of our processing performed for the purpose of administrating and managing the customer relationship, is necessary for our performance of the contract we have with you; i.e. the terms and conditions.
We also process your data when it is required by any licence or legislation we are subject to, e.g. anti-money laundering (AML) legislation, which require certain due-diligence procedures to ensure that we are not contributing to money laundering.
When communicating marketing material to you and performing statistical analysis, the processing is based on a balance of interest, which means that we have a legitimate interest of processing the data (i.e. a commercial interest in providing relevant marketing) and we do that in a way that does not interfere with your privacy. We have made our assessment with consideration of our established customer relationship and the fact that we only process a limited amount of data when customizing our offers and marketing activities (e.g. age, gaming frequency, website usage and transaction history).
If we were to perform any processing of data that would require your consent, we will obtain such consent from you in connection with the specific processing activity.
To whom do we disclose the personal data?
Your data may be shared within the Mr Green group for the purpose of developing and improving our games and services. It may also be disclosed to external parties providing services to the Mr Green group, e.g. IT/system support services and gaming providers. It may also be disclosed to third parties assisting in investigations (such as AML investigations) for the purpose of detecting and preventing fraud or other security or technical problems. We may also disclose your data to authorities, if required by law, regulation or administrative decisions.
If we transfer your data to external parties outside of the EU/EEA, we ensure that there is a legal basis for the transfer, e.g. by including the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses for data transfers (which are available at the EU Commission’s website) in our agreements with the parties accessing personal data.
For how long do we store your personal data?
Due to gaming licence requirements, a majority of your data is stored as long as you are a customer at Evoke Gaming Ltd. In case you want to close your account, all data (such as what segment you belong to or other information generated for marketing purposes) is erased unless it is required by legislation or licence requirements that we retain the data. In that case, such data will be stored as long as required by such legislation and/or licence requirement (e.g. 5 years after the customer relationship has ended according to our Malta licence).
