- The Company welcomes and will abide by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR, in our view, is a long overdue regulation that stops companies abusing people’s personal information. It stops organisations offering up prizes foc but sell your data to anyone! Our company is set up on the very clear idea that the entrant enters the competition to get the chance to win the prize that they want for a fixed entry price clearly set out on each game. To repeat, we will never sell your personal information to other businesses – that’s just not right!
- We want to be as clear as possible about what information we need and what we will do with it. If you ever want to know more, please just email us on the ‘Contact Us’ page.

Other important points about your data:
- We will keep your data for as long as you are happy for us to.
- But you may send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org under you ‘right to be forgotten’ at any time and we will remove all your details as soon as possible.
- As you can imagine we’d prefer you not to because we won’t be able to communicate with you again if you do this – at worst not being able to inform you that you’ve won!
- But this is an important ‘right’ of GDPR and one that we will embrace fully if you’d like us to.
- There may be a legal reason for us to require us to hold onto your data until any legal issues are concluded. At which time, we will remove all your personal information from our files.
- Importantly, your personal information will be stored safely and securely to the best of our ability. Keeping your personal information ‘personal’ is important, we know it’s important and we will always respect that.
- However hard we try there is always a risk in the transmission of data over the internet and it is never 100% secure. So the transmission of data is at your own risk.
- Your personal information will only be used by I Should CoCo companies and will not be shared or sold to any other company.
