Restrictiveness of regulations
How restrictive are the legal obligations applicable to prize promotions?
Prize promotions are generally accepted in the Netherlands, provided that they are in compliance with the Code of Conduct. The steps necessary to avoid not falling into the category of 'promotional game of chance' under the Code of Conduct are (while important) not very restrictive. However, GDPR has introduced various obligations around processing personal data which have significant application to prize promotions (e.g. use of submissions including personal data, winner publicity, etc.).
