In some circumstances, GAN Integrity collects Personal Information on behalf and under the direction of its customers. In these cases, there is no direct relationship with the individuals whose information we collect and process. If we are processing your Personal Information on behalf of one of our customers, and you would like to access, correct or delete the Personal Information, you should directly contact our customer as the responsible data controller. Customers of our customers should directly contact our customers for any requests.

Log Data

We may also collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our services (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

In addition, we may use third party services that collect, monitor and analyze this type of information in order to increase our Service’s functionality. These third-party service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information.

Cookies

Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include a unique online identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

We use “cookies” to collect information in the context of analyzing trends and tracking the user’s movements around the website by collecting information about the time/date of the visit, the time/date of last visit and the page viewed. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Your consent can be withdrawn at all times. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service.

Use of Service Providers or other Third Parties

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. We also make sure that third parties are bound to the same data protection requirements as we are. We retain the responsibility and liability for transfers to third parties.

Communications

Unless prohibited by applicable law, we may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send. Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent prior to sending you direct marketing communications.

Legal Compliance

We will disclose your Personal Information where required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement or to protect the security or integrity of our Service.

Business Transaction

If GAN Integrity is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your Personal Information may be transferred. We will provide notice before your Personal Information is transferred and becomes subject to a different Privacy Notice.

Lawful Basis for Processing Personal Information

We must have a legal basis to process your Personal Information. In most cases the legal basis will be one of the following:

  • To fulfill our contractual obligations to you, for example to provide the services you request and to ensure that invoices are paid correctly. Failure to provide this information may prevent or delay the fulfilment of these contractual obligations.
  • To comply with our legal obligations, for example to obtain proof of your identity to enable us to meet our fraud prevention and anti-money laundering obligations.
  • To meet our legitimate interests, for example to understand how you use our services and to enable us to derive knowledge that enables us to develop new services. For example, we may contact you in your capacity as an employee or representative of your organization in order to conduct direct business-to-business marketing on the basis of our legitimate interests. When we process Personal Information to meet our legitimate interests, we put in place robust safeguards to ensure that your privacy is protected and to ensure that our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. For more information about the balancing test that we carry out to process your Personal Information to meet our legitimate interests, please contact us at the details below.
  • When required by applicable law, we obtain and rely on your consent to send you direct marketing communications. Where we obtain your information in the context of a transaction, we may later contact you to conduct direct marketing.

Security and Retention

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. No company other than GAN Integrity and its service providers are allowed to access the Personal Information on our servers unless you authorize otherwise.

GAN Integrity has taken reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. However, remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

When we collect Personal Information on our own behalf, we will keep it for as long as we have a relationship with you, and for a period of 30 days thereafter, unless agreed otherwise. We will only retain your Personal Information after this time if we are required to do so to comply with the law, or if there are outstanding claims or complaints that will reasonably require your Personal Information to be retained.

When we collect Personal Information on behalf of our customers and under their direction, we retain it as long as needed to perform the service to the customer.
