Legitimate interests

We will also use personal data relating to players where necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us and organizations we work with.

However, we will only use personal data relating to players for the purposes of legitimate interests where players’ interests, rights and freedoms do not override our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of the organizations we work with.
