II. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

In addition to the general information provided above, this section describes specific personal information collection and use activities related to certain portions of the Services.

A. Information You Provide. In order to access and use our Gaming Operations, you must register for an online wagering account (a “Wagering Account”). When you register for a Wagering Account, we will access and collect the personal information you provide (including your name, postal address, e-mail address, and date of birth). We may also ask you for additional information, including your mobile phone number, Social Security number, and a government-issued photo identification such as your driver’s license, state identification card, or passport.

We will also verify whether you have a current MGM Rewards account. If you do not have a current MGM Rewards Account, an MGM Rewards Account will be created for you as part of the registration process. You can learn more about the MGM Rewards program by visiting https://mgmresorts.com. You can review the terms and conditions for the MGM Rewards program here and MGM’s privacy practices with respect to the MGM Rewards program here. For more information about how BetMGM and MGM utilize and share information in connection with your Wagering Account and MGM Rewards Account, please see the "How to Opt-Out" section below. 

When you access, participate in, or otherwise interact with our Services, or otherwise engage with us in connection with our Services, such as requesting more information about our Services or communicating with us, we may ask you to provide us with additional personal information. Some of this information may be required for us to collect to meet our legal and/or regulatory obligations. Please note, if you do not provide us with personal information that is required for a particular feature of our Services, such as information we are legally required to collect when you register for a Wagering Account, you may not be able to access, participate in, or otherwise use our Services or certain portions of our Services.

B. Location, Gaming, and Transaction Information. When you use the Services, we and our third-party service providers may collect information about your precise physical location, your gaming activity, and all transactions associated with your Account. 

C. Device Information. When you use the Services, we and our third-party service providers may use cookies (see below), web beacons, tracking pixels, scripts, e-tags, and other technologies (“Tracking Technologies”) to collect and analyze information about you, your device, and your activity. Information collected through Tracking Technologies may include the type of device; browser and operating system you are using; your device identifiers, such as your MAC address; the name you have associated with your device; the unique number associated with your internet connection; your (mobile) telephone number; the websites you visit; your precise geographic location; and your activities within the Services including the links you click, the pages or screens you view, the bandwidth you use, your session time, the number of times you click a page/screen or use a feature of the Services, the date and time you click on a page or use a feature, and the amount of time you spend on a page or using a feature. Information collected through Tracking Technologies is stored in log files. We respond to “Do Not Track” signals as required by applicable law.

D. Cookies/ Session ReplayWe may use cookies to store some information on your computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device when you access and use the Services. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or equipment when you visit certain online pages and record your preferences. Cookies allow us to remember things about your visits across the Services, but cannot access or use other information on your device. We do not use flash cookies to remember or use directly identifying personal information about you such as your name or e-mail address. We use cookies to track use of the Services. We also may use cookies and third-party cookies to monitor traffic to the Services, improve the Services, and make it easier and/or more relevant for your use.

We use session replay software on our Online Offerings so we can better understand each individual user’s experiences on our Online Offerings (like how much time users spend on which pages, which links they click, what they like and don’t like) and use that knowledge to fix bugs on our Online Offerings, improve your user experience on our Online Offerings, and improve the functionality of our Online Offerings. Session replay software allows us to record and play back a user’s journey through our website or mobile app. These session replay services use cookies and other technologies to collect data about the behavior of our users and their devices, in particular the IP address of the device, screen size, device type (“Unique Device Identifiers”), information about the browser used, location (country only), preferred language for displaying our Online Offerings, in addition to mouse movement, click information, and text you enter as you navigate through our Online Offerings.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. You can also modify your Flash Player settings to prevent the use of flash cookies. 

If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to experience all of the interactive features available through the Services. You can visit www.allaboutcookies.org in order to obtain more information on deleting or controlling cookies. Please note that by deleting our cookies or disabling future cookies, you may not be able to access certain areas or features of the Services. You can find additional information about BetMGM's use of cookies here.

E. Wi-Fi and Location Information. There are federal law prohibitions and restrictions relating to wagering on the Internet (including such prohibitions and restrictions set out in 18 U.S.C. §§ 1084 et seq. (“The Wire Act”) and 31 U.S.C. §§ 3163 through 3167 (“UIEGA”)). Each of our Gaming Operations is offered for a specific state or other jurisdiction. It is a federal offense for persons physically located outside of the state or other jurisdiction in which a specific Gaming Operation is offered to engage in any Internet wagering activity through such Gaming Operation. We and our service providers utilize several current technologies, and may use future technologies, that enable us and our service providers to determine the location of devices that engage, or attempt to engage, in any wagering activity through or in connection with our Gaming Operations (collectively, “Location Tracking Technologies”). Location Tracking Technologies allows us to: (i) verify your physical location when you engage, or attempt to engage, in any wagering through or in connection with a specific Gaming Operation; and (ii) improve the location-based services utilized by our Services. Without limiting anything else in this Policy, the Location Tracking Technologies are capable of identifying the precise or near-precise physical location of the computers or Internet-connected devices that engage, or attempt to engage, in any wagering activities through or in connection with our Gaming Operations by accessing the device’s IP address, MAC address, RFID, hardware embedded article/production number, embedded software number (such as UUID, Exif/IPTC/XMP or modern steganography), Wi-Fi positioning system, or device GPS coordinates (collectively, “Location Information”). Without limiting anything else in this Policy, the Location Tracking Technologies will report the Location Information for each any every device you use to engage, or attempt to engage, in any wagering activities through or in connection with our Gaming Operations to us, our service providers and/or regulatory bodies and other applicable government agencies and related entities to ensure you are located in the applicable state or other jurisdiction for the applicable Gaming Operation.

The normal operation of the Location Tracking Technologies and our Gaming Operations transmit Location Information via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and Location Information is stored in password protected servers managed by us and our geolocation and operating partners. Neither us nor our partners will disclose, transfer or resell your Location Information to any additional third parties except:

  1. where required by law, including, without limitation, as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or government agency request;
  2. as necessary or appropriate to investigate, respond to and defend against legal claims, including, without limitation, to protect us against liability;
  3. to protect our property and rights;
  4. for the safety of the public or any person;
  5. to stop any unfair illegal, unethical, fraudulent, abusive or legally actionable activity.
  6. to protect the security and integrity of our Gaming Operations and any equipment used to make our Gaming Operations available; or
  7. in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of our assets.

You may opt-out of, or otherwise withdraw your consent to, our use of the Location Tracking Technologies to collect and report Location Information at any time by turning off the location settings on your applicable devices or by notifying us in writing that you would like to opt-out or otherwise withdraw your consent. If you turn off the location settings or opt-out or otherwise withdraw your consent, you may be able to access your account and view our webpage, but will not be able to place any internet wagers or access real money games and tournaments via the applicable Gaming Operations.

Location Information is retained for up to ten (10) years as required by applicable regulatory bodies and other government agencies and related entities, as well as state and federal regulations.

F. Affiliate and Third-Party Information. We may obtain information about you from MGM Resorts International and casinos, resorts, platforms, and properties that are owned, operated, managed by or affiliated with MGM Resorts International (collectively “MGM Affiliates”), from our other parent and affiliated companies, including, but not limited to, Entain plc (collectively, with the MGM Affiliates, our “Affiliates”) and from third parties, including our business partners and other companies and individuals that refer you to our Services. This information may include, among other things, information related to your MGM Rewards Account that we need to make the Services available to you, information to set up your Wagering Account and information necessary to connect your Wagering Account to your account with one or more of our business partners. It may also include information to assist us in meeting our regulatory obligations and ensuring the fairness, security and safety of our Services.

IV. HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION/ ACCOUNT DELETION

The length of time we retain personal information depends on the reason the personal information was originally collected, how we use the personal information in connection with our operations, and requirements applicable to the personal information. This may include, without limitation, retaining personal information to:

  • complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected,
  • continue our ongoing business relationship with you,
  • ensure the security and integrity of our Services, and
  • satisfy applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for individual categories of personal information we collect, we consider the 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 that personal information and whether we can fulfill those purposes through other means, and applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, reporting or other requirements.

Requests to close or delete your account may be made by logging into your account and selecting Service Closure. Due to regulatory requirements under state gaming laws, federal tax laws and other legal obligations, and as necessary to complete certain transactions, we are required to retain your account information for a certain period of time, which may vary by state. We may also retain your account information to engage in ongoing fraud prevention and detection and to exercise and defend against legal claims. Provided you do not re-open your account in the future, we will delete your account information once we no longer need to retain it for the purpose(s) for which it was retained. 

Once we determine that we no longer need to retain such personal information, pursuant to applicable law, such personal information will be securely erased from hard disks, magnetic tapes, solid state memory, and other devices, as applicable, or we will aggregate, anonymize, or otherwise de-identify such personal information so that it no longer identifies you.

But under California law, certain sharing of information for advertising purposes may be considered a “sale” of “personal information”.  BetMGM does use cookies for targeted advertising in certain jurisdictions.  Please note that even if you opt-out of the selling or sharing of your personal information, we may still: (1) share your personal information with service providers and other entities for business purposes consistent with state privacy laws, and (2) share your personal information in connection with certain business transactions.

Additionally, for residents of the states that have implemented this right, we honor the Global Privacy Control (GPC) as set through various browsers or browser plug-ins. You can find more about how to enable the GPC on your browser on the GPC website. When we receive a valid signal sent through GPC, we honor that communication as a valid request to opt-out of the sale or sharing of Personal Information associated with that browser or device. We may notify you if your request to opt-out sent through GPC conflicts with your previous consent to the sale or sharing of your Personal Information.

Please note that even if you opt-out of the selling or sharing of your personal information, we may still: (1) share your personal information with service providers and other entities for business purposes consistent with state privacy laws and our legal and regulatory obligations and (2) share your personal information in connection with certain business transactions consistent with the uses outlined above.

5. Right to Appeal

If you disagree with our refusal to take action on your request to exercise your State Privacy Rights, you have the right to ask us to reconsider. Appeal requests should be submitted by directly responding to our denial of your privacy request available through our online portal.  You must submit your request within 60 days of your receipt of our denial. Once we receive your request, we will acknowledge and start processing your request. Within 45 days of receiving your request, we will inform you in writing of any action taken or not taken in response to your request, including a written explanation of the reasons for our decision. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of that process, you may contact your applicable regulator to submit a complaint. State specific appeal information is listed in the “Other State-Specific Privacy Rights” section below.

6Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your State Privacy Rights. Unless permitted by state privacy laws, if you exercise your rights under state privacy laws, we will not:

  • deny you goods or services,
  • charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties,
  • provide you with a different level or quality of goods or services, or
  • suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level of quality of goods or services.

However, we may offer discounts, coupons, survey rewards and sweepstakes or contest rewards (“Promotions”) from time to time. In exchange, we will collect, use, share and retain certain personal information from you for us to implement the Promotions. We will also maintain and utilize the personal information you provide for future marketing purposes. These financial incentives are reasonably related to the value of the personal information you provide.

7.  Additional Uses or Disclosures of Sensitive Personal Information

We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information for any purpose other than our own business purposes, as specified under CCPA.

A. How to Submit a Privacy Request

If your state is subject to these rights and you wish to submit one of the above requests, please click here or call 1-844-604-4423 and provide the identifying information requested. All requests are subject to verification of your identity to protect the privacy and security of your personal information. We are required to fulfill these requests no more than twice within a 12-month period.

You may only make a request to exercise your rights on behalf of yourself. If you are a California resident, a person that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a request related to your Personal Information.

Requests to opt out of sale or sharing. In addition to submitting a request as noted above, you must access the BetMGM Cookie Settings page available here and turn off Targeting Cookies (or broadcast the Global Privacy Control (“GPC”) signal) to fully exercise your sale or sharing opt-out rights. The cookie preference tool is device and browser specific. If you delete or clear cookies or change devices or browsers, you will need to reset your cookie preferences using the tool. Please note that even if you opt-out of the sale or sharing of your Personal Information, we may still disclose your Personal Information to service providers, contractors, and other entities for business or commercial purposes consistent with state law and in certain business transactions with our service providers.

B. Verification Procedures

In order to verify requests made pursuant to the CCPA, we may require two (2) or more pieces of identifying information that match information maintained by us or, if you have a Wagering Account, to verify your identity through your Wagering Account. In some cases, we may require additional identifying information and a signed declaration attesting to your identity. In situations where we receive a request from an authorized agent on your behalf, we may require written proof that the agent is, in fact, authorized to act on your behalf and we may take additional steps to verify your identity and the authorized agent’s identity. A request to opt-out pursuant to Section IV.B.3 above need not be verified. However, if we have a good-faith, reasonable basis to believe that an opt-out request is fraudulent, we may deny the request and provide an explanation of the reason for the denial.

In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the Right to Know (IV.B.1) or Right to Delete (IV.B.2) described above, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity. If we are unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, we will explain the reasons for declining to comply with the request.

California’s Shine the Light Law. Under California’s Shine the Light law, certain businesses are required to respond to requests from California residents asking about the disclosure of personal information to third parties for third-party marketing purposes. Alternately, such businesses may adopt a policy of not disclosing personal information to third parties for marketing purposes if a California resident has opted-out of such information sharing. We have adopted an opt-out policy. If you wish to opt-out of our sharing your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes, please follow the instructions in the section entitled “How to Opt Out” above.

California Sensitive Information. You have the right to request that we limit our use or disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information (as defined by California law) about you to certain uses authorized by the CCPA. We do not disclose Sensitive Personal Information beyond such authorizations.

Nevada Do Not Sell. Nevada law gives consumers in Nevada the right to restrict certain businesses from selling certain personal information to unaffiliated third parties if those third parties will license or sell such personal information to additional third parties. We do not sell the personally identifiable information of Nevada consumers as defined by Nevada law.  If you are a Nevada resident and would like to put your name on a list to restrict any such sales in the future, please click here, follow the instructions and provide the requested information, including your complete name, street address, city, state, zip code, and e-mail address.

VI. SECURITY

We store certain non-gaming information and non-live gaming data collected through the Services on secure servers located in the United States. Internet wagering and live game play data collected by us through the Services for a specific jurisdiction where our Gaming Operations are offered is stored on secure servers located within the jurisdiction for the applicable Gaming Operation and may, subject to applicable laws, also be stored in other jurisdictions where our Gaming Operations are offered. Our servers may not offer a level of privacy protection as great as that offered in other jurisdictions. We make no representation that the practices described in this Policy are compliant with laws outside of the United States.

We have measures in place to prevent the unauthorized or unnecessary disclosure of the Personal Information we collect. Our servers are protected by firewalls and other industry standard security measures. These security measures are intended to protect our servers from unauthorized access. However, no security system is impenetrable, and these systems could become accessible in the event of a security breach. We have controls in place that are designed to detect potential data breaches, contain and minimize the loss of data, and conduct forensic investigations of a breach.

Our staff is required to take reasonable measures to ensure that unauthorized persons cannot view or access your personal information. Employees who violate our privacy policies are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

We cannot enforce or control the security of the computers, electronic devices, or electronic communication method that you may use to send e-mails and submit information to us over the Internet. You are responsible for ensuring that the computers, electronic devices and electronic communication methods you use will provide adequate security for communicating with us. We are not responsible for the disclosure or interception of information that you send us before we receive it.

As a standard security practice, we will take reasonable steps which are generally recognized in the industry to ensure that the communication methods used to support the Services do not permit connection or communication by methods that have known security weaknesses or vulnerabilities. As such, if you experience trouble using the Services, it may be an indication that you need to upgrade your Internet browsing tool or application to a newer version that supports more secure communication methods.

In situations where your personal information is collected by third parties under contract with us for performance of their contractual duties and other purposes, we require such third parties to exercise reasonable care to protect that information and restrict the use of your personal information to the purposes for which it was provided. When we share your personal information with MGM Affiliates or third parties in accordance with this Policy, we require them to exercise reasonable care to protect such information and restrict the use of such information to the purposes for which it was provided to them.

VII. ACCESS TO AND DELETION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

With respect to personal information associated with your Wagering Account (“Wagering Account Personal Information”), we will retain such Wagering Account personal information as long as your Account is active. When your Wagering Account is terminated, we will retain applicable Wagering Account personal information for as long as necessary to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, resolve disputes, reasonably manage our business, and enforce contractual agreements. Once we determine that we no longer need to retain such Wagering Account Personal Information, pursuant to applicable law, all such Wagering Account Personal Information will be securely erased from hard disks, magnetic tapes, solid state memory, and other devices, as applicable, before the device is properly disposed of by us. If erasure is not possible, the device will be destroyed.

Provided that we have not erased or otherwise destroyed your Wagering Account player information, you may access, update, and correct inaccuracies in your Wagering Account personal information that is in our custody and control. All personal information can only be updated by contacting BetMGM’s Customer Care team via e-mail at support.wy@betMGM.com and providing the required personal information and identity verification documents that are requested by the Customer Care team.

For all other personal information that we collect in connection with our Services, we will retain such personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, resolve disputes, reasonably manage our business, and enforce contractual agreements. Once we determine that we no longer need to retain such personal information, pursuant to applicable law, such personal information will be securely erased from hard disks, magnetic tapes, solid state memory, and other devices, as applicable, or we will aggregate, anonymize or otherwise de-identify such personal information so that it no longer identifies you.

VIII. OTHER WEBSITES

We are not responsible for the information collection or privacy practices of other websites, including websites accessible through the Services. You should review and understand the privacy policies posted on any linked sites you visit before using those sites or providing any personal information on them.

IX. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

Information collected on the Services may be stored and processed in any country in which we or our affiliates, suppliers, third-party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions or agents maintain facilities. By using the Services, you expressly consent to any transfer of information outside of your country (including to third countries that may not have been assessed as having adequate privacy laws). Nevertheless, we take steps to ensure that our agents, affiliates and suppliers comply with our standards of privacy regardless of their location.

X.PERSONS UNDER 21

The Services are for use by persons 21 or older. If you are under 21, you may not access, attempt to access, or use the Services.
