Sportradar supports sport federations, law enforcement agencies and other state authorities with our Fraud Detection System (FDS) to detect betting related fraud around sporting events. In order to provide this important service, we collect and process information about the sporting events we monitor – in particular betting and match related data. In addition to this data, we collect further basic and publicly-available data related to the persons involved in those specific, monitored matches (ie. players, managers and match officials). The personal data we process is limited to: full name, date of birth, country of origin, previous teams and the role the person has within the specific sporting event (e.g. playing position or type of official).
When we detect suspicious betting activity on a match, we provide our contractual partners, whether sports federations and/or state authorities, with a detailed report which explains why we think the match was manipulated for betting purposes. As part of the report, the betting and match data of the match is set out and we include a full list of the persons involved in the match. The reports are not published or publicly available and are provided to our partners on a strictly private and confidential basis. In the event of criminal proceedings, the information may also be shared with law enforcement agencies.
The data collected and the reports generated are only used for the above mentioned purpose: the detection of matches suspected to have been manipulated for betting purposes.
We take all reasonable technical and organisational precautions in order to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of any personal information included within our FDS or FDS Reports. We store any personal information on our own secured servers.
The responsible supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner´s Office in the United Kingdom.
