Statement from Wesley Mission and the Alliance for Gambling Reform on the Outabox data breach in NSW clubs

 

Wesley Mission and the Alliance for Gambling Reform have consistently argued that facial recognition technology in pubs and clubs is potentially illegal, poses data risks, does not minimise gambling harm and is ultimately unnecessary. It will only add to the risk of further breaches of people’s privacy. 

 

A universal mandatory cashless payment system with loss limits, managed independently of the gambling industry, would give people control over their own gambling without the intervention of any venue management. The data would be stored and protected separately from any other information clubs or pubs collect about their customers.

  • Wesley Mission CEO Rev Stu Cameron
  • Alliance for Gambling Reform Chief Advocate, Rev Tim Costello
