Rightly Protect is 100% free
Some people bet perhaps just once a year on The Grand National or the FA Cup. A lot of people are signed up to gambling apps and websites and their accounts are all but dormant. But their data sits in databases, it gets moved between computer systems and can even be shared with either companies. And it can include sensitive stuff, including payment card information.
You may have noticed that when you’ve signed up to a particular gambling site, emails start appearing from others that you never signed up to. That’s because one gambling company may sell your data on to another, or it might come from another gambling brand in the same group of companies.
If you have personal data in a company’s database it’s at risk of being lost or stolen in a data breach. If that happens, it can make you more vulnerable by it being used against you in a scam. So, if you don’t want a company to have your data any more, or they simply no longer need it, then use Rightly Protect to get it deleted. If a company doesn’t have your data, they can’t lose it or have it stolen. With Rightly Protect you can delete your data from any gambling site, and even from any other company, in one go.
Unsubscribing doesn’t delete your data.
Even if you’ve hit ‘unsubscribe’ in an email, your personal info can still be exposed in a data theft and could fall into the hands of criminals, because unsubscribing from emails doesn’t delete your data.

Gambling apps and websites collect a wide range of personal data which can include:
- Name and date of birth
- Recent changes of address
- Tastes and habits
- Contact details
- Cookies & IP address
- Credit and debit card details
- Economic, social and cultural information
Sometimes, it’s helpful to have your data shared. But not without your consent. What happens to your data and who it's shared with often isn't made clear, and in particular, that it gets sold on and used to better target you with advertising.
Understandably, many people find this extremely invasive.
Why should I delete the data held by gambling sites?
The data that gambling apps and websites store is private.
In a data breach, or if a company sells your data, it can fall into the wrong hands and be used in a scam against you.
What happens to your data should be up to you.
Collecting all this personal data might help the app or website present gambling opportunities that interest you. But when you’re done with your gambling app or website, the data you leave behind puts you at risk.
Many apps and websites sell this information to third parties, and many have a long history of data breaches. Don't get stung by a data theft.
The easiest way to stop gambling apps and sites using your personal data is to use Rightly Protect to send a deletion request. We'll connect you to as many companies as you need and request erasure of your personal data, in one go. And for free.
