How do we ensure your personal data is accurate?

The majority of the personal data that we collect is collected directly from you, in which case you are responsible for its accuracy. We encourage you to tell us as soon as possible if there are any changes to your personal data, such as a new address. When information is found to be inaccurate, either through our own checks or following a communication from you, it is updated.

Who might we share your information with?

We do not sell, rent or otherwise trade your personal data with others. While most of our work is done by our employees who access your personal data directly from our systems which are under our direct control, we do use third-party service providers to perform certain functions on our behalf.

Please note that if we are requested by the police, government, regulatory, or other body investigating suspected illegal activities to provide your personal data we are entitled to do so.

How long do we keep hold of your information?

We keep your personal data for as long as we need it to satisfy our business and legal requirements; normally this is up to 5 years after you cease holding a customer account. Once the personal data is no longer required, it is either deleted or anonymised.

It is important to note that all employees at Opera House Casino follow an organisation-wide security policy. Only employees authorised are provided access to personal data and these employees will have agreed to ensure confidentiality of this information.
