Freedom of Information Act 2000

Any information or material sent to the Gambling Commission and which we record may be subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (opens in a new tab).

The Gambling Commission's privacy policy is available on our website. Whilst the Commission recognises that the information it requests and receives may be commercially sensitive information or personal data. The Commission will treat all such information as confidential and will only disclose that information where it is necessary to do so in order to carry out the Commission's functions or where the Commission is required by law to disclose the information.

As a public authority, the Commission must comply with the requirements of the Freedom on Information Act 2000 and must consider requests for information under the Act on a case by case basis. However, the Commission would not normally expect that the disclosure of commercially sensitive information to a potential competitor would be in the public interest.
