1/19/2012 : ICT COALITION FOR A SAFER INTERNET LAUNCHED TODAY
Online gambling specific measures included in principles
The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has welcomed the introduction of the first ICT industry-wide principles to enhance online safety for children launched by the ICT Coalition for a Safer Internet.
The principles complement a recent online child protection initiative delivered by European Commission vice-president Neelie Kroes and comprise adoption of the principles by twenty-five companies across the information and communications technology sector that include leading European online gambling companies.
Included in the principles are online gambling specific measures to prevent underage gambling as already agreed in the context of the European Committee for Standardization in 2011.
