Online Forms and Lottoraiser Local Lotto Tickets:
We require some information to be entered by customers of our Business clients. Normally such information such as name, address, email address and choice of lottery numbers for club/charity lotto they are entering. All email addresses are encrypted and to protect against database theft. We do not store payment details, this is handle by a 3rd party eMerchant such as PayPal.
When a customer uses our local lotto forms, no session cookie for personal information is created, all information is directly saved to a database. We only use two session cookies in relation to identification the Company name and a hash unique identifier of the person. This ensures that you can only access information regarding your previous tickets and guards against any fraudulent activity.

Please be aware that it is the sender's responsibility to ensure that the content of their emails is within the bounds of the law. Unsolicited material of a criminal nature will be reported to the relevant authorities and blocked.
Making a complaint to us:
When we take on a complaint, a file is generated. This will usually contain personal information about the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint. We will only collect personal information that is necessary to investigate the complaint.
We will usually have to disclose the complainant's identity to whomever the case is against. We will try to facilitate a complainant who wishes to remain anonymous, but if a case proceeds it is generally inevitable that the identities of both parties are revealed. This is to ensure fairness in the legal process.
If sensitive personal data is collected for the purposes of a complaint, appropriate measures will be taken to insure that it is safely processed.
The information contained in complaint files will be kept in line with our retention policy. This means that information will be held for six years from the last date of action on the file. It will be kept in a secure environment and available only to those who need to access it.
When we take enforcement action, we may be required to publish the identity to authorities. We will not identify the complainant unless the information is already in the public domain or required by law.
Access to personal information:
Lottoraiser will respond to Section 3 requests (confirmation of the existence of data) made under the Data Protection Acts and can comply with Section 4 requests (release of data) provided enough time is given and we verify you are the owner of the data being held.
No personal information will be shared with any third parties without the customer’s permission. We will not disclose your personal data to third parties except to the Business organisation you are entering/donating funds for their local lotto.
