To the extent that you are not satisfied with our response you should contact:

(1) For UK Players

Daub Alderney Limited has appointed eCOGRA as its Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service provider. Players have free right of access to the ADR function. eCOGRA may be contacted at www.ecogra.org where you will find the ADR policies and procedures (http://ecogra.org/ata/policies_procedures.php) and can submit a dispute form at http://ecogra.org/ata/dispute.php.

You may also file your complaint via the European Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform which allows consumers and ADR providers to file, respond to, and handle disputes. Our appointed ODR is eCogra.

» Players must ensure that at least two weeks have passed since the problem began, they have followed the approved licence holder’s internal complaints procedure and that all reasonable attempts have been made to negotiate a solution with the approved licence holder before submitting an ADR dispute form.
» Players may not request assistance if the dispute is being or has been considered by another approved ADR provider or a court.
» Players may not request assistance if the dispute arose more than one year ago.
» Players must submit a concise, clear and to the point summary of the circumstances of their dispute which will allow eCOGRA to provide the best service. Superfluous, nonessential, redundant verbiage will only serve to impede progress.
» Once a dispute has been referred to eCOGRA, the player and the approved licence holder should refrain from contacting each other and discussing the dispute. All communication should be channelled through eCOGRA.

Username and Password

You must keep your Username and Password confidential and should not disclose these details to anybody. You shall be responsible for all transactions conducted in relation to your Player Account using your Password. Every person who identifies him/herself by entering your correct Username and Password is assumed by us to be you and all transactions where the Username and Password have been entered correctly will be regarded as valid.

Last Login Date

By accessing “My Account” page, customers can view the last time they logged into their accounts. This is an additional security measure.

Deposit Limits

Should players wish to establish deposit limits on their account with Kittybingo.com, please visit the responsible gaming tab in the cashier or contact our Customer Service department who will happily assist with your query. Limits can be set daily, weekly or monthly.

Self Exclusion

For customers that wish to restrict their gambling, Kitty Bingo offers a self-exclusion facility. On request, Kitty Bingo will close any account for a minimum period of 6 months. During an exclusion period, the account cannot be re-opened for any reason. A player can close his/her account at any time by contacting our 24/7 Customer Support team on 0800 279 3221 (Freephone) or 0203 544 6725 (Landline) or by emailing support@kittybingo.com with the player’s username and registered email details of the account which is to be closed. Customers are encouraged to consider extending their self-exclusion to other remote gambling operators currently used by them.

A self-exclusion can be activated immediately without any cooling-off period. However, if a player wishes to consider the self-exclusion further (for example to discuss with problem gambling groups) the player may return at a later date to enter request for a self-exclusion.

Upon self-exclusion all future wagers, pre-purchased bingo tickets, loyalty points, bonus funds and entries in any promotions will be forfeited. These will not be reinstated if the account is reopened after the self-exclusion period. All remaining balances provided the terms and conditions are met, less any active bonuses will be transferred to the player bank card, bank account, paid by cheque or transferred to any other payment method which we make available.

Accounts closed as part of our self-exclusion policy cannot be re-opened for any reason until the self-exclusion period has expired. Upon expiry of the self-exclusion period a player may request to re-open a closed account by contacting our 24/7 Customer Support team on free phone 0800 279 3221 (Freephone) or 0203 544 6725 (Landline) with the details of the account to be re-opened. When a request to re-open is made, a player will need to wait for a 24 hour cooling off period before that the account can be re-activated.

We will use all reasonable endeavors to ensure compliance with our responsible gaming self-exclusion policy. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that whilst a player is self-excluded, the player do not receive any marketing material from us. However, we cannot be held liable for any 3rd third party affiliate marketing that a player may receive which remains beyond our control. Also, a player may still receive promotional/marketing material for up to 21 days after account closure if such request for self-exclusion is made after a campaign launch.

A player accepts that we have no responsibility or liability whatsoever if the player continues to deposit and wager using additional not previously disclosed accounts or if the player opens up a new account with substantially the same personal registration information, albeit inputted into the registration form in a different way.

Take a Break

Players have the option to request for a “Take a Break” period from their account at any stage during their KittyBingo.com membership. Players can contact Support Team and request for the “Take a Break” for the following periods:

24 hours

Once the “Take a Break” period has lapsed, the player account will be re-opened and the player will be sent a notification by e-mail. During a “Take a Break” period, players changing their mind may request to re-open their account at any point by contacting our Support Team on 0800 279 3221 (Freephone) or 0203 544 6725 (Landline) or by emailing support@kittybingo.com.

If players would like a longer “Take a Break” period (up to a maximum of 6 weeks), they can contact the Support Team on 0800 279 3221 (Freephone) or 0203 544 6725 (Landline) or by emailing support@kittybingo.com.
