The public area of this website has a lot of information that we have set out in such a way to provide our users with a clear look into the world of sports betting in the United Kingdom from the best bookies to sign up with to tips for betting on different sports. When users move about our site, we track their movements so that we can get a good idea as to what parts of our website have more popularity.

User settings can actually have an effect on your privacy and end up putting yourself at a bit of risk. Our servers will try to protect you as much as possible, but we would be lying to you if we claimed that they are 100% effective. The same thing can be said for third parties and any technology that they make use of, which is one of the reasons why we can never be held accountable for any problems that occur with them.
