This Supplemental Notice applies to you if:

What are your rights as a Data Subject?


As a Data Subject pursuant to the GDPR, you have certain rights. This Supplemental Notice summarizes what these rights under the GDPR involve and how you can exercise these rights. More detail about each right, including exceptions and limitations, can be found in Articles 15-21 and 77 of the EU GDPR and the UK GDPR (as implemented by the Data Protection Act 2018).

Right of access. You have the right to request that AdoreGames confirm whether it is processing your personal information. If we are processing your personal information, you have the right to access that personal information, and we will provide you with a copy of that personal information unless prevented by applicable law.

Right to have inaccurate personal information corrected. You have the right to request that AdoreGames correct any inaccurate personal information that it maintains about you. You also have the right to request that it complete any incomplete personal information that it maintains about you, which could be accomplished by incorporating a supplementary statement that you submit.

Right to erasure. You have the right to request the erasure of personal information that AdoreGames maintains about you in certain circumstances. These circumstances are identified in Article 17 of both the EU GDPR and the UK GDPR and include that the personal information is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose(s) for which it was collected.

Subject to applicable EU and UK laws and our policies and provided that there are no overriding legitimate grounds for us to retain your personal information, we will comply with the request and will take reasonable steps to inform any third parties with whom your personal information was shared.

Right to restriction of processing. You have the right to request that AdoreGames restrict the processing of your personal information where one of the reasons identified in Article 18 of the EU GDPR or the UK GDPR apply.

Right to data portability. Where the basis for processing is consent and where the processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal information that you have provided to us. AdoreGames will provide the personal information in a structured and machine-readable format.

Right to withdraw consent. If the basis for processing your personal information is consent, you may revoke your consent at any time. Upon receipt of your notice withdrawing consent, and if there are no other legal grounds for the processing, we will stop processing the personal information unless the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. Revoking consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing that occurred before the revocation.

Right to object to processing. In certain situations, you may have the right to object to processing of your personal information. In particular, if we use your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time, and we will stop using your personal information for that purpose.

Right to file a complaint. If you believe processing of your personal information by AdoreGames violates the EU GDPR, you have the right to submit a complaint to an EEA supervisory authority, in particular the one in the EEA country of your habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged violation. For more information on the process for submitting a complaint, consult the relevant EEA supervisory authority. If you believe that processing of your personal information by AdoreGames violates the UK GDPR, you have the right to submit a complaint to the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). For more information on the process for submitting a complaint, visit the ICO website.

How to exercise your rights


In order to exercise any of these rights, except the right to file a complaint with an EEA supervisory authority or the UK ICO, you should contact us as described above.
