1. OVERVIEW

This privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") sets forth the policies and related practices of Bally's Interactive, L.L.C. ("Bally's Interactive", "we", "us", or "our") with respect to the collection, storage, use, and disclosure of personal information through the platforms where this Privacy Policy appears or is referenced (the "Platform"). The Platform provides sports wagering products and services offering real-money web and mobile application-based sports wagering services (collectively, the "Services").

The Platform is operated in New York by Bally's Interactive, as licensed and regulated by the New York State Gaming Commission pursuant to and in accordance with enabling legislation found in the Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and Breeding Law Sections 1367 and 1367-(a). By using the Platform, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy, as may be amended from time to time, and to the collection, storage, use and disclosure of personal information described in this Privacy Policy.

Bally's Interactive reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy from time to time in Bally's Interactive's sole discretion. We will notify you of any material change by placing notice of the revised Privacy Policy on the Platform or as otherwise required by law. Any changes to the Privacy Policy will be effective immediately upon such notification, unless otherwise stated. Your continued use and access of the Platform and/or the Services subsequent to such change going into effect shall be deemed to be your acceptance of such change. We therefore encourage you to visit this Privacy Policy from time to time to make sure that you are aware of the current version and any changes that we may make.

The Platform is intended only for individuals located in New York at the time of access. However, your personal information may be processed in or transferred to jurisdictions inside and outside of the United States of America. Our Platform is subject to United States laws, which may not afford the same level protection as those in your country. By using the Platform or the Services, you hereby consent to your personal information being transferred to our, outside of the United States of America.

2. INFORMATION COLLECTED

We (and the vendors and other parties we use to perform services on our behalf), collect, receive, and develop several categories of personal information about you:

We also collect your comments, reviews, questions, and suggestions that you post or submit to us.

Location Data. We collect information about your location and location coordinates, such as IP address, when you visit the Platform or otherwise use the Services.

("The Wire Act") and 31 U.S.C. 3163 through 3167 ("UIEGA"), sets forth certain prohibitions with respect to internet wagering, including the Services. Any person who is not currently physically located within the State of New York may not use the Services. You will be required to consent to the collection and use of certain information about your location, including the use of location-based services by us (or through our vendors acting on our behalf) and other operating software information that can be derived from a phone, tablet, any other mobile device, computer, or any other device or equipment ("Device"). Location data may include, but is not limited to, your IP address, zip code, Wi-Fi connection, or GPS data. You may choose to limit the information we collect about your location by disabling or turning off certain features through the settings on your Device. For more information about your choices, see Section 7 of this Privacy Policy. If you limit our collection of location data, certain functionality of the Services or Platform may become impaired, disabled or inaccessible and your access and use of the Services may be limited, blocked and/or terminated.

electronic communications and content from your use of the Platform (such as where the mobile app was downloaded, the date, time, and location of your use of the Platform, what features of Platform you visit or use, what search terms or other data you enter or in-game actions and achievements, and what Services, features, content, and links you view and click on). We may also embed technologies (which may include, for example, web beacons, tags, and pixels) in the emails and other communications we or our vendors send to you to help us understand how you interact with those messages, such as whether and when you opened a message or clicked on any content within the message.

To determine the retention period for personal information, we generally consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the personal information, the purposes for which we process the personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and what the law or regulations require us to do.
