Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Some of the data processors engaged to process personal data may be based outside of Australia.
Such a transfer of data does not take place unless:
- the transfer is necessary for the verification of your identity or suitability to become a client of bet365, the performance of a contract between you and bet365, or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken in response to a request by you; or
- the transfer is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded in your interest between bet365 and a third party; or
- all of the following apply:
(i) the transfer is for your benefit;
(ii) it is impracticable to obtain your consent to the transfer; and
(iii) if it were practicable to obtain such consent, you would be likely to give it; or –
- bet365 has taken reasonable steps to ensure that the information which it has transferred will not be held, used or disclosed by the recipient of the information inconsistently with the Australian Privacy Principles.
