GDPR no excuse for not meeting gambling licensing duties, says UK regulator

In a new note issued to businesses in the British gambling market, the Gambling Commission acknowledged that some operators have concerns that the new data protection rules, which will apply from 25 May, will hamper their ability to meet their licensing duties. However, it said it would "not accept licensees simply stating that GDPR means that they are unable to comply with an aspect of gambling regulation".

The Commission's note (8-page / 94KB PDF) set out how it believes operators can lawfully process personal data to meet their obligations on customer self-exclusion, combat money laundering and to meet other social responsibility purposes, as well as share data on suspected illegality.
