Gambling Commission issue GDPR guidance to operators 12th April 2018

The Gambling Commission has now published an information note regarding the upcoming introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In the guidance, the Commission said: “Both the Gambling Commission and the ICO recognise that effective use of personal data is important to tackle issues such as problem gambling, and gambling-associated crime. GDPR is not intended to prevent operators from taking steps which are necessary in the public interest, or are necessary to comply with legal obligations. Accordingly, we do not expect you to suddenly stop doing what you are doing for these purposes.

“Whilst it will remain your responsibility to ensure you are legally compliant with the GDPR, we wish to offer assistance and support to help you comply both with the GDPR and with our regulatory framework.”
