I. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
This section describes BetMGM’s personal information collection, use and processing activities related to certain portions of the Services.

When you register for a Wagering Account, we will access and collect the personal information you provide (including your name, username, postal address, e-mail address, descriptive occupation (i.e. job position and industry), gender, date of birth and preferences). We may also ask you for additional information, including your mobile phone number, and a government-issued photo identification such as your driver’s license, Ontario photo card, or passport.
When we verify Your identity when You first register Your Account with us, we share certain information with Canadian credit bureaus, such as TransUnion Canada (via our service provider, Aristotle) and Equifax Canada (via our service provider, GBGroup), in order to validate ID as required by applicable federal law. We will also use a third-party service provider, Jumio, where necessary, who will assist with verifying the details of your government-issued photo-identification and proof of address documents as required under applicable law. Further information about how these credit bureaus and third-party service providers treat your information can be found on their relevant websites.
We will collect certain of the above personal information, and if provided by you, your country of residence, business telephone number, employer’s name, employer’s address, citizenship, and alias/preferred name for the purposes of complying with our anti-money laundering obligations under applicable law. If you attest that you are a Politically Exposed Person (“PEP”), the Head of an International Organization (“HIO”), or a family member or a close associate of a PEP or HIO, as those terms are defined in the General Terms of Service, you will be required to provide additional information such as your source of funds, your source of wealth, the nature of your connection to the PEP or HIO if you are a family member or close associate of a PEP or HIO, the office or position of the PEP/HIO, the PEP or HIO organization/institution name and, if you are a family member or close associate of a PEP or HIO, the nature of the relationship between the family member and close associate of the PEP or HIO.

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 is stored in Canada, the United States and other foreign jurisdictions and may, subject to applicable laws and lawful access by US or foreign courts, law enforcement or other government authorities.
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. We maintain a BetMGM ‘Information Security Policy/Information Security Standards’ document, which contains Data Breach security standards. We will provide you notice in the event of an incident that materially impacts your personal information (a “Data Incident”). We will notify you, iGaming Ontario, and any other applicable regulatory authority about the Data Incident, and we will aid iGaming Ontario and any applicable authorities in the management and handling of the Data Incident.

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 order to protect your account, we strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (such as letters, phone calls or email messages). If you become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of your account, you are required to notify us immediately. For general information on how to protect your information online, please refer to the resources posted by the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario at www.ipc.on.ca/privacy-individuals/ensuring-your-privacy-is-protected/.
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.
IV. 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.
