What information do we collect?
Upon signing up with Oddscatcher.com, your details are held with ourselves. All information provided by you will be treated in strict confidence according to the terms and conditions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and associated legislation.
Disclosure of your information
In order to provide our products and services to you, we may need to appoint other organisations to carry out some of the processing activities on our behalf. These will include, for example, delivery organisations and mailing houses. In these circumstances, we will ensure that your information is properly protected and that it is only used in accordance with this policy
Security of information
We take the security of your personal information seriously. When joining up with us, we use a third party payment company called BCH Ltd. They are a Payment Card Industry (PCI) approved service provider which means that they conform to the minimum standards determined by VISA and MasterCard and have their systems audited regularly by approved and independent organisations to ensure compliance. BCH Ltd are an industry-leader in this field. All online payments are fully secure. Firstly, when registering online for one of our services, your credit card details get encrypted using a Comodo SSL certificate before they are sent between your web browser and our website. Once we have received these details we immediately forward them – still in encrypted format – to BCH Ltd. Oddscatcher.com do not get access to credit card details from these online transactions, and your credit card information is never stored on our web servers.
Also, the majority of our transactions will now use 3-D Secure (also referred to as Verified By Visa and Mastercard SecureCode), which adds an extra layer of protection, and enables the user to enter some extra security details to verify their request is genuine.
In addition, we have security procedures in place to protect our databases from loss and misuse, and only allow access to them when it is absolutely necessary to do so, and then under strict guidelines as to what use may be made of the personal information contained within them.
We aim to meet high standards and our policies and procedures are, therefore, constantly under review. From time to time we may change our security and privacy policies. Accordingly we recommend that you check this page periodically in order to review our current policies.
Management of Personal Data
We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties

How you can access or control your personal data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from our web site by email, SMS, physical mail, and telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by following the directions in that message. You can also make choices about the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by visiting and signing into Company Promotional Communications Manager, which allows you to update contact information, manage contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether to share your contact information with our partners.

Information We Collect
Our store collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we supplement the data we collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We also use services from other companies to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.
How We Use Your Information
Our web site uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various web site services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. However, to enhance privacy, we have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address or phone number.
Sharing Your Information
We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized. For example, we share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. We also share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we’ve hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
