Response

Thank you for your request which has been processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

In your email you have requested:

  1. Any documentation, where it exists, that supports the view that [REDACTED] this is a real and existing person
  2. Any correspondence, internal or external, relating to the existence of [REDACTED]

The Data Protection Act 2018 requires personal data to be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject. It is the view of the Commission that confirming whether we do or do not hold information falling within the scope of this part of your request would constitute the disclosure of personal data and would contravene this principle.

This information is therefore exempt under section 40(5) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Section 40(5B) provides that the duty to confirm or deny does not arise in relation to other information if or to the extent that any of the following applies—

(a) giving a member of the public the confirmation or denial that would have to be given to comply with section 1(1)(a)—
(i) would (apart from this Act) contravene any of the data protection principles.

It is the view of the Commission that confirming whether we do or do not hold information in relation to [REDACTED] would constitute the disclosure of personal data and would not be fair and lawful.

There is no legitimate public interest in confirming or denying this information and it would not be fair to do so. This information is therefore exempt under section 40(5) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

  1. Basic corporate information about persons responsible for 8XBet / 6686 (such as details of shareholders and executives)

Identifying individuals associated with operators would constitute their personal data. We are therefore unable to provide details of the individual(s) who owns TGP Europe Limited. The Data Protection Act 2018 requires the processing of personal data to be fair and lawful.

It would be disproportionate for us to publicly disclose these details unless there is a strong public interest in doing so. These individuals have a legitimate expectation that their personal details will not be disclosed in the context in which they are held.

On balance, there is no legitimate public interest in disclosing this information and it would not be fair to do so. This information is therefore exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
