At Betano, we take location verification seriously to ensure compliance with local laws, maintain a secure platform, and offer a personalized and responsible gambling experience for our users. To achieve this, we use various methods to identify your location accurately. In this Help Center article, we'll explain the different techniques we employ to determine where you're accessing our services from.
2. IP Geolocation:
One of the primary methods we use to identify your location is through IP geolocation. When you connect to the internet, your device is assigned an IP (Internet Protocol) address. This address contains location information that helps us approximate your geographic location. While IP geolocation provides a general idea of your whereabouts, it may not always be entirely accurate, especially if you're using a virtual private network (VPN) or proxy.
3. Wi-Fi and GPS Data:
If you're accessing Betano through a mobile device, we may also collect Wi-Fi and GPS data to pinpoint your location more accurately. This data provides real-time location information and is particularly useful for members who are on the move. However, please note that we only access this data with your explicit consent, and we prioritize your privacy and data security.
4. Mobile Network Data:
Your mobile network provider also plays a role in helping us identify your location. When you connect to the internet through your mobile data, the network provider can provide location information based on the cell towers your device connects to. This method is particularly helpful in cases where other location techniques may not be available or reliable.
Verifying your location is a crucial step in ensuring a secure and responsible gambling environment at Betano. Through various methods, such as IP geolocation, Wi-Fi and GPS data, and address verification, we strive to accurately determine your location. If you have any queries or require further information, our customer support team is here to help you at any time. Thank you for being a part of the Betano community.
