These are the data processing security, fraud and money laundering prevention and marketing services.
HotSlots is obliged to process data on the basis of various legal provisions and current legislation. These include tax regulations, anti-money laundering regulations and other regulations regarding licensed operators issued by supervisory authorities.
In addition to that, your data may be used by HotSlots for the following purposes:
a. To provide you with services covered by the operation of the HotSlots website.

HotSlots does not use algorithms on your profiled data to make automated decisions that can affect your individual rights or any rights arising from the contract between HotSlots and you. I.e. HotSlots does not place automatic offers based on your behaviour in the games.
However, HotSlots is obliged by laws and license conditions to monitor its players to identify people who may be experiencing, or are at risk of developing gambling problems. Based on data describing unique players, a special algorithm provides us with an estimated probability of gambling addiction, allowing HotSlots to interact with such players to offer help or support. Decisions based on predictions are not made automatically without human intervention.
FOR HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA?
These regulations set out that HotSlots can store your personal data for a certain period after you cease being a customer, due to legal and license provisions imposed to us. After this period, HotSlots will either safely delete or anonymize your information – If deletion is not possible (because the data has been stored in backup archives) then we will securely store, isolate, and safeguard your information from any further use until deletion can be possible.
Where we have the appropriate consent (subjected to your preferences) and/or lawful basis, some of your personal data can be processed by our third-party marketing partners to allow us to communicate with all our customers by phone, email, push notifications, SMS (by sending platform providers) and to inform about prizes and/or gifts from suppliers, etc.
Consent for this processing can be changed in whole or in part at any time by going to ‘My Account’ settings. If you need more information about this, let us know.
All our marketing communications will include instructions on how to opt out of receiving this specific type of marketing communications. It can take up to 48 hours for your request be fully carried out. We will not share your personal data with unrelated third parties to market their products to you without your prior consent.
Telephone calls to and from our Customer Contact Centre can be recorded for training and security purposes along with the resolution of any queries arising from the service you receive.
The two-factor authentication adds more security to your HotSlots account.
Any attempts to log in to your HotSlots account from a new device or country will be followed up with a 6-digit authentication code (token) sent to your mobile phone number or email address provided upon registration. You will be required to enter the generated code (token) upon your login attempt. To do so, just write the code from your mobile SMS or email into the field “Token”.
This procedure will protect your account from unusual activity or potential third-party access by keeping unknown people away, even if they are in possession of your password.
If for any reason you do not receive the verification token, please contact our Customer Support.
