Asian-football.com (‘AF.C”, “we‘, ‘us‘) is principally responsible for looking after your personal data (your ‘Data Controller‘). The Data Controller is the company that determines the means and purposes of processing of personal data.
You should be aware that although we are principally responsible for looking after your personal data, information may be held in databases that can be accessed by other companies. When accessing your personal data, all companies will comply with the standards set out in this Policy. See also Section 4 below.
AF.C is a group of companies with subsidiaries in several countries, for example in the European Union, Australia, Japan and the USA.

We do not collect personal data on people under the age of 18 (or the age of legal consent per the laws of any jurisdiction, whichever is higher). If personal data on minors is collected without our knowledge, please contact us at the address indicated in Section 8 below.

We will only process your personal data for the purposes set out in this Section 3 and where we are satisfied that:
We work with many third parties to help manage our business and deliver services. From time to time, these third parties may require access to your personal data:
International Transfers mean that personal data is transferred to a country outside the European Union.
As set out in Section 4 above, we may grant third parties who may be located outside the European Union access to your personal data. In such instances, we shall ensure that the transfer of your personal data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection laws and, in particular, that appropriate safeguards are in place, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the EU Commission.
We may also disclose your personal data if we receive a legal or regulatory request from a foreign law enforcement body outside the European Union.
We will always take steps to ensure that any international transfer of information is managed to protect your rights and interests. Any requests for information that we receive from law enforcement or regulators will be carefully checked before personal data is disclosed.
You have the right to ask us for more information about the safeguards we have put in place, as mentioned above. For further information, contact us (see Section 8).
We may use your personal data to send you direct marketing communications regarding products and services that AF.C and its advertising partners offer, for example in relation to online casino, sports betting and financial services. This may be in the form of emails, SMS, Whatsapp, Facebook or Telegram messenger or targeted online advertisements.
The use and processing of your personal data for the purpose of sending you electronic marketing messages will be based on your consent to receive such messages. When permitted by law, it will be based on our legitimate interest (see Section 3 above). Provided that we have received your consent, we will use third parties to help us to process your personal data for marketing purposes (see Section 4 above).
You retain the right to unsubscribe from any further electronic marketing communications at any time after giving us your consent to send such messages. You can use the opt-out link included in all direct electronic marketing communications or contact us (see Section 8).
We take steps to limit direct marketing to a reasonable and proportionate level and to send you communications that we believe may be of interest or relevance to you, based on the information we have about you.
We will retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes listed in Section 3 of this Policy.
In some circumstances, we keep your personal data for a certain period of time in order to meet legal, tax or accounting requirements for example. Otherwise, we keep it for as long as we have a contractual obligation with you (e.g. if you are a registered user).
In terms of our marketing and targeting activities, we will collect and process your data until you have withdrawn your consent for collection. See also Section 8 below.
We maintain a data retention policy for personal data in our care. Where your personal data is no longer required, we will ensure that it is either securely deleted or made anonymous.
You have a number of rights in relation to your personal data. More information on each of these rights can be found by referring to the table set out further below.
