14.3 Account Closure
You have the right to close your account at any time and you may indicate your desire to close your account through phone, chat or e-mail.
Such closure shall occur within 72 hours after receipt by us of your request should there be no activities in your account in those 72 hours. Players are required to re-confirm their intention to close their accounts if they access their account to play within the 72 hours to prevent any unwanted interruption in their game sessions.
You accept that you shall remain responsible for any activity on your account between advising us of your notification and the closure of your account by us. We are not liable for the non-receipt of any account closure requests.
Players may still receive promotional/marketing material for up to 21 days after account closure, if such request for account closure is made after a campaign launch.
Any player who wishes to restrict himself/herself from gambling at Kittybingo.com can make use of our self-exclusion policy at any point in time. Upon such a request from a player, we shall close the player’s account on all sites operating under Daub Alderney Limited license issued by the UK Gambling Commission which shall be for a minimum period of 6 months to a maximum of 5 years. 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 email@example.com with the player’s username and registered email details of the account which is to be closed.
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 endeavours 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.
