Security and Privacy

Security Issues

All players are entered with player identification numbers and a system-assigned Player ID access code. Registration is done via the Internet and credit card details are securely submitted on heavily encrypted pages. The complete player register is stored on a computer separated from the Internet. Our WWW-Server supports the SSL protocol for encrypted communications between Downtown BingoTM players and the credit card transaction system. Note, that credit cards numbers are not stored in our database. We only store the 1st 6 digits and the last 4 digits. The player must fill in the remaining numbers when depositing funds. This allows for maximum security and a player can feel secure about credit card transactions with Downtown Bingo.

Another security measure is that we register each player's IP address. Although we cannot rely on this information, it is possible to become aware of sudden changes in playing behavior, which can indicate that a player's membership number and access-code may have been compromised. Please note that in the event that you notice changes to you player account status, you must e-mail us immediately so we can investigate. This ability in no way obligates to investigate this kind of abnormality.

The harm an intruder can do if the intruder manages to break an access-code is limited to using the access-code for playing only. The access-code cannot be used for revealing the credit card number or other sensitive information.

The games are subjected to strict supervision.


Player privacy is assured. All information received from a player is treated as confidential and is not disclosed to any other party unless specified by the user. Downtown Bingo is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Downtown Bingo does collect information from our users at different areas on our website.
