How We Use Personal Data
The IEGA uses the data we collect to provide you rich, interactive experiences. In particular, we use data to:

- Improve and develop our products/services;
- Personalize our products/services and make recommendations; and
- Advertise and market to you, which includes sending promotional communications, targeting advertising, and presenting you relevant offers.
We also use the data to operate our business, which includes analyzing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, developing our workforce, and doing research.
In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of two The IEGA products) or obtain from third parties to give you a more seamless, consistent, and personalized experience, to make informed business decisions, and for other legitimate purposes.
Microsoft uses the data we collect to provide you rich, interactive experiences. In particular, we use data to:
We also use the data to operate our business, which includes analyzing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, developing our workforce, and doing research.
For these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of two Microsoft products). For example, Cortana uses the favorite sports teams you add to the Microsoft Sports app to provide information relevant to your interests, and Microsoft Store uses information about the apps and services you use to make personalized app recommendations. However, we have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations where required by law. For example, where required by law, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address or phone number.
When we process personal data about you, we do so with your consent and/or as necessary to provide the products you use, operate our business, meet our contractual and legal obligations, protect the security of our systems and our customers, or fulfill other legitimate interests of Microsoft as described this section and Reasons We Share Personal Data sections below. When we transfer personal data from the European Economic Area, we do so based on a variety of legal mechanisms, as described in Where We Store and Process Personal Data below.
More on the purposes of processing:
Reasons We Share Personal Data
We share your personal data with your consent or to complete any transaction or provide any product you have requested or authorized. We also share data with The IEGA -controlled affiliates and subsidiaries; with vendors working on our behalf; when required by law or to respond to legal process; to protect our customers; to protect lives; to maintain the security of our products/services; and to protect The IEGA’s and its customers’ rights and property.
We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any product you have requested or authorized. For example, we share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so, such as when you send an email to a friend, share photos and documents on OneDrive, or link accounts with another service. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction.
In addition, we share personal data among Microsoft-controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. We also share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we've hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
Finally, we will retain, access, transfer, disclose, and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails in Outlook.com, or files in private folders on OneDrive), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to:
For more information about data we disclose in response to requests from law enforcement and other government agencies, please see our Law Enforcement Requests Report, available at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/about/corporate-responsibility/lerr/.

Your Communications Preferences
You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from Microsoft by email, SMS, physical mail, and telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by following the directions in that message. You can also make choices about the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by signing in with your personal Microsoft account, and viewing your communication permissions where you can update contact information, manage Microsoft-wide contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether to share your contact information with Microsoft partners. If you do not have a personal Microsoft account, you can manage your Microsoft email contact preferences by using this web form. These choices do not apply to mandatory service communications that are part of certain Microsoft products, programs, activities, or to surveys or other informational communications that have their own unsubscribe method.
Your Advertising Choices
To opt out of receiving interest-based advertising from Microsoft visit our opt-out page. When you opt out, your preference is stored in a cookie that is specific to the web browser you are using. The opt-out cookie has an expiration date of five years. If you delete the cookies on your device, you need to opt out again.
You can also link your opt-out choice with your personal Microsoft account. It will then apply on any device where you use that account and will continue to apply until someone signs in with a different personal Microsoft account on that device. If you delete the cookies on your device, you will need to sign in again for the settings to apply.
For Microsoft-controlled advertising that appears in apps on Windows, you may use the opt-out linked to your personal Microsoft account, or opt out of interest-based advertising by turning off the advertising ID in Windows settings.
Because the data used for interest-based advertising is also used for other necessary purposes (including providing our products, analytics, and fraud detection), opting out of interest-based advertising does not stop that data collection. You will continue to get ads, although they may be less relevant to you.
You can opt out of receiving interest-based advertising from third parties we partner with by visiting their sites (see above).
When you use a browser, you can control your personal data using certain features. For example:

Additional privacy controls that can impact cookies, including the Tracking Protection feature of Microsoft browsers, are described in the Access and Control section of this privacy statement.
Our Use of Web Beacons and Analytics Services
Some Microsoft web pages contain electronic tags known as web beacons that we use to help deliver cookies on our websites, count users who have visited those websites, and deliver co-branded products. We also include web beacons or similar technologies in our electronic communications to determine whether you open and act on them.
In addition to placing web beacons on our own websites, we sometimes work with other companies to place our web beacons on their websites or in their advertisements. This helps us develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a Microsoft website results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's website.
Finally, Microsoft products often contain web beacons or similar technologies from third-party analytics providers, which help us compile aggregated statistics about the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other operations. These technologies enable the analytics providers to set or read their own cookies or other identifiers on your device, through which they can collect information about your online activities across applications, websites or other products. However, we prohibit these analytics providers from using web beacons on our sites to collect or access information that directly identifies you (such as your name or email address). You can opt out of data collection or use by some of these analytics providers by clicking the following links:
Other Similar Technologies
In addition to standard cookies and web beacons, our products can also use other similar technologies to store and read data files on your computer. This is typically done to maintain your preferences or to improve speed and performance by storing certain files locally. But, like standard cookies, these technologies can also store a unique identifier for your computer, which can then track behavior. These technologies include Local Shared Objects (or "Flash cookies") and Silverlight Application Storage.
Local Shared Objects or "Flash cookies". Web sites that use Adobe Flash technologies can use Local Shared Objects or "Flash cookies" to store data on your computer. To manage or block Flash cookies, go to http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.
Silverlight Application Storage. Web sites or applications that use Microsoft Silverlight technology also have the ability to store data by using Silverlight Application Storage. To learn how to manage or block such storage, see the Silverlight section of this statement.

- Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites and software applications work, or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites and software applications can read and write these files, enabling them to recognize you and remember important information that will make your use of a website or software application more convenient (e.g., by remembering your user preferences).
- What Cookies do we use?
- Below we list the different types of cookies we may use on The IEGA Services.

B. Negotiations:1.In an effort to accelerate resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, the participant and IEGA agrees to first attempt to negotiate a resolution of any dispute informally for at least thirty (30) days before either party initiates any arbitration. 2. Negotiations will begin upon receipt of written notice by the party raising the dispute. IEGA will send its notice to the participant’s billing address and email the participant a copy to the email address the participant has provided to Administration. 3. Participation can send notice to IEGA at International Electronic Gaming Authority Inc., 5700- 100 King St W Toronto, Ontario M5X 1C7 Attn. Legal Department. C. Binding Arbitration: 1. If a dispute cannot be resolved through negotiations, either the participant or IEGA may elect to have the dispute finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. 2. THE PARTICIPANT SHOULD REVIEW THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION LIMITS BOTH PARTIES ABILITY TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN COURT AND BOTH PARTIES AGREE TO WAIVE THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. 3. This arbitration provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act (the "FAA") shall apply to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and formation of this Agreement notwithstanding any other choice of law provision contained in this Agreement. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its interpretation, formation, performance and breach), the parties' relationship with each other and/or the participant’s participation in the Competition shall be finally settled by binding arbitration. 4. The arbitrator shall be selected by The IEGA. The arbitrator, and not any federal, provincial or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Handbook, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Handbook are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. 5. Where any action includes claims that are arbitrable and claims that are not, the entire action shall be stayed, absent a showing of prejudice to the complaining party, pending the completion
of the arbitration of the arbitrable issues. The Participant or IEGA can request the stay be lifted upon a showing of prejudice. The participant arbitration fees and the participant’s share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. 6. Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. 7. The participant’s arbitration fees and the participant’s share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and, to the extent applicable, the Consumer Minimum Standards, including the then-current limit on arbitration filing fees. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, IEGA will pay the additional cost. 8. Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in provincial or federal court that only asserts claims for patent infringement or invalidity, copyright infringement, moral rights violations, trademark infringement, and/or trade secret misappropriation, but not, for clarity, claims related to the license granted to the participant’s for the IEGA Service under the Terms of Service for International Electronic Gaming Authority, available at www.theiega.com. D.Arbitration Procedures: 1. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested. 2. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT, ABSENT THIS MANDATORY PROVISION, THEY WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation. The parties understand that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. 1. The participant acknowledge and agree that: (i) a claim by, or on behalf of, other persons, will not be considered in, joined with, or consolidated with, the arbitration proceedings or any court proceedings between the participant and IEGA; (ii) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated, adjudicated, or resolved through court proceedings on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) the participant will not have the right to participate as a class representative, private attorney general, or as a member of any class of claimants for any dispute subject to arbitration or any dispute brought in court. Any dispute regarding the prohibitions in the prior Sections shall be resolved by the arbitrator in accordance with this Section. 2. If, for any reason, this class or collective action waiver is deemed unenforceable by a court or arbitrator, the participant agree that the parties’ contract to arbitrate is then void, and any ongoing or future dispute will be submitted to a court of competent jurisdiction within the province of Ontario, Canada, to the exclusion of arbitration. Any dispute at that time in arbitration will be dismissed without prejudice and refiled in a court. F. Location of Arbitration: All arbitrations shall be initiated in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and the participant and IEGA agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or provincial court in Ontario, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. G. Awards: Any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited as set forth in these Official Rules in Section 9. H.Right to Opt Out and Changes to this Section: Participants have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration provisions set forth above by sending written notice of the participant’s decision to opt-out to the following address: International Electronic Gaming Authority., Attention: Legal, 5700-100 King St W Toronto, Ontario M5X 1C7. The notice must be sent within 30 days of the participant’s agreement to these Official Rules. Otherwise the
participant’s shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If the participant opts-out of these arbitration provisions, IEGA also will not be bound by them. IEGA will provide 60-days’ notice of any changes to this section (Section 9). Changes will become effective on the 60th day, and will apply prospectively only to any claims arising after the 60th day.
