How we protect your data
- We will only send you information if you have given us your consent

What data breach procedures we have in place
Should PCBANG.UK suffer a data breach and your personal information is or is suspected of being at risk, our Data Protection Officer (DPO) will first determine if the breach is still occurring and take the necessary steps to minimise its effects. We shall determine the severity of the breach and establish whether there is anything that can be done to recover any losses and limit the damage the breach may have caused. We shall contact any persons that may need to be notified as part of the initial containment and will inform the police, where appropriate. We will ascertain whether or not the Information Commissioner’s Office will need to be notified of the breach also, and if so and where possible, notify them within 72 hours of becoming aware of the incident. Individuals whose personal data has been affected by the incident, and where it is considered likely to result in affecting that individual’s rights and freedoms, shall be informed as soon as possible. Notification of a breach in data security will include a description of how and when the breach occurred and the data involved. Specific and clear guidance will be given on what affected individuals can do to further protect themselves, and include what actions have already been taken to mitigate the risks. Once an incident is contained, our DPO will carry out a full investigation of the causes of the breach; review the effectiveness of our response and whether any changes to our system, and procedures should be made.
PCBANG.UK will keep a record of any personal data breaches, regardless of whether notification was required.
What third parties we receive data from?
We will often receive information about you from third parties. The third parties from which we receive information about you can include game hosting and entertainment platforms, and payment services companies such as PayPal. It is also possible that third parties that we have had no prior contact with may provide us with information about you. Information we receive from third parties will generally be your name and contact details including email address, but will include any additional information about you which they provide to us. Where a third party has passed on information about you to us in order for us to provide services to you, we will take the necessary steps to ensure this information is kept secure. Where a third party has shared information about you with us and you have not consented to the sharing of that information, we will have a justifiable interest in processing that information in certain circumstances. Similarly, third parties may pass on information about you to us if you have violated or potentially violated any of our legal rights. In this case, we will have a legitimate interest in processing that information to investigate and pursue any such potential infringement.
