We use appropriate and reasonable technological and organisational methods to protect your personal data. This includes encrypting any personal data that we store, minimising the amount of data stored, and adhering to regulatory processes that govern how we handle data.
We are committed to respecting the privacy and security of its Users. Data which is voluntarily communicated by the User to Us via the Website shall be handled with maximum care and with all tools necessary to guarantee its security, in full respect of strict UK and EU privacy legislation.
Please be aware that we are limited by inherent security risks which exist in transmitting data on the internet. Therefore we are not able to completely protect your information from unauthorised access by third parties. We shall accept no liability for any damages or/and losses incurred in the result of a security violation.
We do not collect any personally identifiable information such as name, address, or IP address. When you subscribe to the newsletters, your IP address will be anonymised. And the ‘unsubscribe’ option is always available via a link in every email sent. We send the News emails at most once per week. The information about what emails you liked is also stored anonymously.
We may collect data and statistics that are not personally identifiable information. We use this data to administer the Site, to analyse trends, to track users’ movement around the Site and to gather demographic data. This information includes, but is not limited to the type of OS (Operation System), type of browsers, navigation of the Site, time and data you access and Site, language, etc.
In some cases, we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
We take various steps for limiting direct marketing to a level that is proportionate and reasonable, and to send communications that we think could be relevant or interesting to you, based on data about you that we have.
You can ask us to delete your data by closing your User Account. In that case, we will immediately delete all information aside from that which we may from time to time be required to retain by law.
We will utilise your personal information to send direct marketing promotions to you about products and services offered by our partners and us. This includes topics like financial services, sports betting, and online casino news. It can be in the form of targeted online ads or email.
We may receive a commission from casino operators in return for on-site exposure – links to online casinos on the site contain a referral code through which they are able to provide us with a finder’s fee. This remuneration does not impact our reviews which are provided by independent third parties. The reviews are the main factor in determining how we will rank a casino in our meta-score. However, we will also take into account player feedback from a variety of sources as well as industry reputation and awards.
The referral code helps us to see which casinos represent the best value for players. We are able to see if players can easily make a deposit or if they quickly leave the casino, how long they stay and how often they play. This statistic provides us with a clear picture of which casinos are worth playing at and which ones tend to provide a limited or downright negative user experience.
Your personal data is not affected by this process. The commission rate we receive can also contribute to the meta-score. Though it is by no means the main factor. We have found that generally only well-established, well funded and strongly regulated casinos can offer good rates to their affiliates. Therefore a higher commission rate is usually a good indicator of a well-run casino brand. But, we would not allow this factor to undermine the integrity of our meta-score system and the quality of the comparison service that we offer to our visitors.
- Advertising partners. We may share open data with advertising partners in order to refine performance and mitigate the risk of fraudulent activity.
- Service providers. As with most organisations, some of our business functions are outsourced to contractors, such as web hosting services or email marketing providers. Any personal data processing by such providers will be only for the specific purpose required in their role as data processors.
The casinos-top-online.co.uk may contain hyperlinks to third party websites, which have their own Terms and Conditions. We advise you to read them before you start using those third party websites. Please notice that we do not exercise any influence on the information therein, and we are not responsible for its correctness. It is solely the responsibility of the owners and webmasters of those websites.
Personal information is used to deliver timely and relevant offers, content and information to the user by email.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your consent or are required by law to do so and we don’t engage in automating profiling using personal data.
We may also process personal data where the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party; where our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required; and where processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of an identified or identifiable person to whom the personal data relates.
We can process personal data on various legal bases outlined in Article of the General Data Protection Regulation. Your data may be processed where we have obtained your consent for a specific processing purpose. When processing of data is based on consent, you can at any time withdraw your consent by contacting us or clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ button in the correspondence you receive from us.
For this and other reason, the Site reserves the right to adjust and make amendments to the information contained within the Site without notice. Due to the realities of maintaining the Site and other digital content we cannot guarantee that all content will be accurate at all times.
It is worth noting that some services and promotions are subject to regulatory and jurisdictional restrictions, and are therefore not available in all markets.
The responsibility lies with you to ensure that any information you respond to is currently valid before committing to the required action.

We currently contract with several online partners to help manage and optimise our Internet business and communications. The casinos-top-online.co.uk use the services of a marketing company to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our site. To do this, we use Web beacons and cookies provided by our marketing company on this site. The type of information we collect includes information entered by visitors in forms, the pages visited, etc.
By supplementing our records, this information helps us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which of our products are most interesting for our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see.
Although our marketing company logs the information coming from our site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used. If you do not want to help us learn how to improve our site, products, offers and marketing strategy, you can “opt-out” of our ability to analyse such data by clicking here.
