Response

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

In your email you have requested ‘all the documentation and discussion with the ICO around customers and individuals supplying financial details to bookmakers and betting companies.’

I can confirm that no information is held by the Gambling Commission regarding discussions with the ICO around customers and individuals supplying financial details to bookmakers and betting companies.

The Commission have not discussed with the ICO customers sharing financial information with betting companies. However, we have discussed betting companies obtaining financial risk information about customers from the finance sector, and specifically credit reference agencies.
