8. Main Content
The regulation defines the manner of storing data and the scope of data subject to storage relating to the operation of online gambling.
In accordance with the draft, the registration system should permit the storage of data relating to the operation of online gambling:
1) relating to the course and outcome of games;
2) relating to the performance of transactions relating to games;
3) relating to financial flow stemming from participation in games assigned to given participants;
4) necessary to identify a games participant;
5) relating to the functioning of storage devices.
The draft regulation specifies that the archiving system should provide the relevant inspection body with access to the data. It will be possible to access the data for at least 5 years from the end of the year in which the storage operations took place. The searching, sorting, filtering, viewing and printing of data will be guaranteed, as well as copying and remote access from the site of the authority. It will be possible to collect data in a structured form, permitting later analysis.


9. Brief Statement of Grounds
The Act of 15 December 2016 on the amendment of the Gambling Activities Act and certain other acts (notification no 2016/398/PL), which amends the Gambling Activities Act of 19 November 2009, expands the catalogue of games which may be offered online. This regulation replaces the Regulation of the Minister for Finance of 9 July 2012 on the method for archiving data and the scope of data related to the organisation of on-line betting, subject to archiving (notification No 2012/130/PL). Previously, the scope of the regulation only covered betting, which hitherto was the only type of gambling legally permitted to be operated online. As it is now possible to organise gambling online by the entity acting as the state monopoly in this field, it is necessary to expand the scope of the regulation to include games other than betting. The provisions on the manner of storing data and the scope of the data to be stored have been clarified and expanded. As a result, the scope of the regulation has been adapted to the amendments regulating the online gambling market, and the efficiency and level of safety of the collection and use of data have been improved.
