The Remote Gambling Association has issued guidance related to the The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It will come into force on 25 May 2018.
The consistent and effective implementation of the GDPR poses a number of challenges for all industries and organisations, not least because of the lack of precedent to follow; and the fact that clear regulatory guidance on every aspect of it is not yet available. The aim of this guidance is to assist the remote gambling sector through this phase. It will be reviewed and updated as and when greater clarity or better practice emerges.
