Bridewell Director, Scott Nicholson, appears in the latest news article by Find My UK Casino exploring what data online casinos collect and store; and exactly what information they hold on to and how you can access it.
Scott: “The casino needs to show that any personal data it collects and processes is necessary and done lawfully. In addition, it needs to be limited to only the personal data needed to carry out the purpose. Any more will go against the principles of data protection legislation and can be punished by monetary fines.“
“If players think that they are being asked for information unnecessarily, then they should ask why. The casino may have a valid explanation but if not, they can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office.“
