Marketing in the aftermath of GDPR and being ahead of the game for ePrivacy Regulation

 

Malta, Wednesday 5th September 2018: Leading provider of retention solutions, Enteractive, is holding a Breakfast Briefing later this month, which will explore the most effective and safest ways for iGaming operators to engage with their customers following the enforcement of GDPR.

Taking place on Wednesday 12th September at the Palace Hotel in Malta, Enteractive CEO Mikael Hansson will chair the discussion, with Think Privacy legal expert Alexander Hanff and FAST TRACK Co- Founder Simon Lidzén joining the panel.

The guest speakers will examine the immediate fallout following GDPR’s requirement for valid consent when companies contact their customer base, which in some markets has resulted in an 80% loss of a marketing database. Both industry professionals will highlight alternative legal options to consider when sending and handling marketing material.

In addition, the panel will also be looking into how operators should be preparing themselves for the upcoming EU ePrivacy Regulation (ePR), which will impact those who engage in electronic direct marketing and is likely to be enforced in 2019.

Enteractive CEO Mikael Hansson said: “There’s no doubt that GDPR has had a major impact on the iGaming industry, and with further regulatory changes in the pipeline, the way in which operators communicate with their customers will become increasingly scrutinised.

“Obtaining valid consent can be difficult to obtain and brings a number of risks to operators, including the severe loss of a marketing database.

“Our latest Breakfast Briefing aims to examine the current climate and highlight the safest and most effective ways for companies to talk to their customers, ensuring they are compliant with the new rules and avoid hefty fines.”

The Enteractive Breakfast Briefing will take place on Wednesday 12th September at The Palace Hotel Sliema, Malta, 8.30am.

UK may implement cut of FOBT maximum stakes earlier than announced

The British culture minister Jeremy Wright said the government is planning to prepone the implementation of the planned reduction of the maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs). Earlier, the date of implementation was October 2019. It could be proposed by six months to April 2019.

It is a real twist in the tale, following the resignation of sports minister Tracey Crouch, who blamed the government of delaying to October the planned the reduction of maximum stake from 100 pounds to just two pounds.

The government had been staring at a possible defeat on its budget legislation in parliament, as many legislators from the governing Conservatives backed an amendment which would have forced them to bring forward the timing of the cut.

Wright said the implementation of the proposed rise in Remote Gaming Duty, paid by online gaming operators, could also be preponed to April to cover the negative impact on the public finances.

The newly passed gambling legislation in Switzerland, the Swiss Gaming Act, will come into force in the country on 1 January 2019. The law will regulate the licensed online gambling space and ban foreign operators altogether.

The new law legalises licensed iGaming companies.

The gaming act’s enforcement was confirmed by Switzerland’s Federal Council, which confirmed its implementation starting next January. It also explained it will consider licence applications during the first six months of 2019, in compliance with the new legislation, and the first ones are set to be issued before July 1, when the foreigner’s ban comes into effect as well.

Licensed operators can provide poker and roulette games to the customers, but need to stick with stringent constraints about the stakes.

The “concrete measures” of the new legislation were aimed to protect problem gamblers.
