They enable the entity that put the cookie on your device to recognise you across different websites, services, devices and/or browsing sessions. More information about cookies can generally be found in the “help” (or similar) section of your computer’s internet browser.

Web browser settings may not affect other types of tracking technologies, and you may need to take additional steps to disable these other technologies.  Please check your internet browser and device for more information.

Third Parties and Interest-based Advertising

Aristocrat does not sell Personal Information to third parties. Aristocrat does permit third parties to collect Personal Information through our websites and app and share Personal Information with third parties for business purposes. These business purposes are described above and include providing advertising on our websites and elsewhere based on users’ online activities over time and across different sites, services, and devices (so-called “interest-based advertising”). The information practices of these third parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Some of these companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies.  To learn more, please click here or here.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms

Some web browsers transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.

 

Third-party sites

Please be aware that our websites contain links to websites operated by third parties. Those links are provided for convenience and may not remain current or be maintained. The information practices of those third-party websites linked to the Winners Warehouse website [and app] are not covered by this Privacy Policy. The privacy policies that apply to those other websites may differ substantially from this Privacy Policy, so we encourage you to read them before using those websites.

Secrecy of passwords and account information

You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online. If you post Personal Information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we strive to protect your Personal Information, Aristocrat cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

 

RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 Aristocrat takes reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify any Personal Information where:

  • Aristocrat no longer needs the Personal Information for any purpose for which the Personal Information was collected or for a related purpose; and

We may also need to verify your identity when you request your Personal Information. We will verify it by querying our systems based upon information you provide to us. You may be entitled, in accordance with applicable law, to submit a request through an authorized agent. To designate an authorized agent to exercise your rights and choices on your behalf, please email us at privacy@aristocrat.com.
