MGA publishes Industry Guidelines on the GDPR in consultation with the IDPC
The GDPR builds on the foundations of the current data protection legislation demanding more from organizations in terms of accountability for the use and retention of personal data and enhances individuals’ rights to data privacy.
Malta | 05/08/2018

The Malta Gaming Authority has published a guidance document on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which are aimed at harmonizing data protection regulation across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

T

he GDPR builds on the foundations of the current data protection legislation demanding more from organizations in terms of accountability for the use and retention of personal data and enhances individuals’ rights to data privacy.

The MGA recognises the industry’s concerns about GDPR-compliance and the way it will impact the gaming industry, so it has undertaken the task of producing this guidance document after a consultation process with the Office of the Information and Data Protection Commissioner (IDPC), which is the responsible supervisory authority for regulating the application of data protection legislation. It will remain the responsibility of MGA licensees to ensure they are compliant with the GDPR and with the gaming regulatory framework.

The Guidelines on GDPR Compliance can be accessed here.
