Change #1
7.13 Privacy and Security of Account Betting
By establishing an account the Account Holder agrees to these provisions governing privacy of information and security.
All personal information provided to the Board by an Account Holder when the account is opened or operated, or when the Account Holder uses the Board's website and/or places bets with the Board, will be held by the Board for the primary purpose of establishing and maintaining the relationship between the Account Holder and the Board. Information collected and held by the Board about the Account Holder may be used by the Board from time to time to:
(a) assess the credit-worthiness of the Account Holder;
(b) confirm that the Betting Account is being used in accordance with these Rules (and, in particular, that it is being used solely for the purposes of betting with the Board);
(c) provide account-related support, notifications, reminders and offers (including account balance and account activity) to the Account Holder during the establishment and on-going use of the account;
(d) manage the account and assess the Account Holder's eligibility to receive specific products or services;
(e) offer the Account Holder products or services that the Board considers may be of interest to the Account Holder;
(f) assess the Account Holder's eligibility for participation in any promotional events which the Board may be running;
(g) deal with the Account Holder's requests, enquiries or complaints and other customer-related activities;
(h) carry out market research and analysis relating to the Board's products and services generally;
(i) monitor account activity in order to detect and prevent corruption in sport and racing (see 14.16); and
(j) comply with its obligations under the Racing Act 2003 relating to problem gambling, harm prevention and minimisation.
Pursuant to the Privacy Act 1993, an Account Holder has the right to view and correct personal information held by the Board.
(a) Personal information may be disclosed by the Board to third parties in connection with any of the purposes stated under this rule provided that the recipient of the information is subject to an obligation of confidentiality in relation to the disclosed information.
(b) Notwithstanding (a) above, the Board may disclose personal information about the Account Holder to particular organisations both within New Zealand and overseas for the purposes of investigating and/or detecting breaches of the Rules of Racing or any relevant legislation of New Zealand, or of another jurisdiction.
A list of authorised bodies with whom the Board has an agreement to share information is available from the Board's Privacy Officer.
These Rules come into force on 1 August 2014.
Full copies of the Betting Rules may be inspected on request at TAB offices, downloaded from the New Zealand Racing Board website
