The United States may not offer a level of privacy protection as great as that offered in other jurisdictions. We make no representation that the practices described in this Policy are compliant with laws outside of the United States.
Our servers are protected by firewalls and other industry standard security measures. These security measures are intended to protect our servers from unauthorized access. However, no security system is impenetrable, and these systems could become accessible in the event of a security breach. We have controls in place that are designed to detect potential data breaches, contain and minimize the loss of data, and conduct forensic investigations of a breach.
Our staff is required to take reasonable measures to ensure that unauthorized persons cannot view or access your personal information. Employees who violate our privacy policies are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

You are responsible for ensuring that the computers, electronic devices and electronic communication methods you use will provide adequate security for communicating with us. We are not responsible for the disclosure or interception of information that you send us before we receive it.
As a standard security practice, we will take reasonable steps which are generally recognized in the industry to ensure that the communication methods used to support the BetMGM App do not permit connection or communication by methods that have known security weaknesses or vulnerabilities. As such, if you experience trouble using the BetMGM App, it may be an indication that you need to upgrade your Internet browsing tool or application to a newer version that supports more secure communication methods.
