What Effect Will GDPR Have on Gambling in the UK?

For some time now, the new European Ruling, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been on the horizon. It will fundamentally change how companies use and manage the data of their customers and users. Given the sensitive nature of the data that gambling companies hold on their users, will GDPR have much of an effect on the industry?

It’s hard to say at present, but it will definitely force a series of changes. From 25th May 2018, these new changes will come in across European Union members – including the UK. This is the first overhaul for the best part of two decades and will play a major role in how data is secured and used for the long-term.

Any non-EU nation that handles EU citizens or businesses data will be expected to follow on, too. It’s already known that the UK Gambling Commission will be taking a very specific look at what these new rulings mean for the marketing and use of customer data. At the moment, we can expect a wholesale change across the entire industry due to this.

With over £2.28bn spent across the UK casino gaming market, it’s no surprise to see that more is being done to help regulate the use of customer data. Operates will be held liable for poor marketing standards from affiliates, and any breaches in how customer data is used or managed could mean GDPR will change how promotions are handled long-term.

  1. all the time i used to read smaller articles or reviews that also clear their motive, and that
    is also happening with this post which I am reading at this time.

  2. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems
    with your blog. It seems like some of the written text in your
    posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to
    them as well? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thank you

  5. Hey! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog
    owners. Appreciate it!
