I was wondering... When a bookie limits you couldn't you just ask them to delete all your personal data (they should be obliged to) and them register again ?

I know it seems too easy but has anybody tried it ?

The personal data is your property and no company should be permitted to keep it if you say so...

We're still in a thread from 2008? :eek:

I found this pretty quickly in the Bet365 terms:
In order to comply with bet365's legal and regulatory requirements and bet365's own internal risk management procedures, we will retain information for a period of time (generally not more than six years) after closure of your account.

My guess is that most if not all online casinos will have a similar clause, so you wont get far asking them to delete your info so you can come and try again.... otherwise problem gamblers would just insist all their details are deleted so they can circumvent responsible gambling rules (just one reason for this)
