Almost a year ago, the KOA (Kansspelen op afstand, Remote Gambling Act) came into force and online gambling was allowed in the Netherlands from 1 October this year. Since then 15 companieshave obtained a licence and a majority of all the applicants use CDDN’s services. Besides onboarding with the special VerifyMe platform, from this month onwards CDDN also offers ongoing monitoring. With this and without any extra effort online casinos can check whether the players registered with them are continuing to comply with the strict legislation and regulations.
The wet Kansspelen op afstand (KOA)or Remote Gambling Act (RGA) stipulates that providers of online gambling must regularly check on their registered players. Thus for instance, players must also observe the strict requirements of the law in the months after initial registration and approval. CDDN keeps the data registration of its clients in the online gambling market constantly up to date. Existing data are regularly verified regarding ‘PEP’, ‘moved’, ‘insolvent’ and ‘deceased’. It may of course also be that in the meantime a player is added to CRUKS (Central Register for Exclusion from Gambling). If a potential client appears in that register, that person may no longer play. CDDN regularly and totally automatically checks whether players’ data have changed.
By this means CDDN ensures that every client file remains complete and up to date, totally in accordance with the provisions of the KOA and the Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming (AVG – General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR). The first online casinos operating in the Dutch market are now participating in CDDN’s ongoing monitoring system.
One of the most important things that an online gambling provider wishes to know about his clients is whether they are actually in a position to meet their financial obligations. That can be verified with an insolvency check.
The data on bankruptcies, suspensions of payment and debt rescheduling regarding natural persons from the local registers of various courts are kept in various public sources. Thus for instance CDDN clients can look up whether the company with which they wish to do business is bankrupt or whether a client has been granted statutory debt rescheduling. Thanks to CDDN’s insolvency and receivership checks, consulting these sources is child’s play.
The real-time check on insolvency is performed totally automatically and is to be implemented as a separate module. This check is also available as an addition in the Know Your Customer (eKYC) package for optimum online identification of a client. In addition, this check forms part of CDDN’s Consumer Basic Administration for the continuous verification of client data. CBA community members will immediately receive a report if a change occurs within the client data. This might also be a change of address or for instance a ‘deceased notification’.
