Gambling Commission publishes industry guidance on complying with GDPR

In its recently published information note the Commission has expressed its clear view that GDPR should “not be improperly used as an excuse to avoid taking steps which enable compliance with licence conditions, promote socially responsible gambling, and promote the licensing objectives.”

The Commission expects operators to take into consideration the Commission’s views expressed in the information note, which discusses a number of scenarios in which the industry has expressed concern, and includes guidance on matters surrounding marketing, social responsibility, self exclusion and data retention.
