  3. Where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
    For example to monitor network access to keep data secure under data protection law.
  4. Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests or those of a third party, and where your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
    For example we need to monitor how players are using our services.

Most of the data we process is within the remits of permissions ii, iii and iv. Contact us if you wish to obtain full details of the basis for which we process each type of personal data.
