Changes in Danish Gambling Authority’s ROFUS – New Executive Orders Have Come Into Force
ODENSE, Funen, Denmark — As of January 1, 2020, new executive orders in the Danish Act on Gambling have come into force. This means that there are several major changes in ROFUS, the Danish Gambling Authority’s register of self-excluded persons. The biggest change is the new “delete button”.
What has changed?
Before the new orders, ROFUS registrants had to submit a written request to the Gambling Authority to be deleted in ROFUS. After January 1, 2020, you must make your own request for deletion via www.rofus.nu.
When you register in ROFUS you also sign up to “No thank you to marketing” arrangement. This prevents you from receiving advertising from online gambling operators with a license from the Danish Gambling Authority for the duration of your registration period.
How does this affect you?
If you want to delete your permanent registration in ROFUS, you must log on to www.rofus.nu using your NemID to request deletion from the register. You must then confirm the request by logging on to www.rofus.nu after a minimum of 7 days and a maximum of 30 days. Remember that you can only request deletion after a minimum of 1 year.
If you have a temporary exclusion, you do not need to act. Your registration in ROFUS is automatically cancelled when the selected period expires on date and time.
The strength of ROFUS remains that your registration cannot be canceled – even if you regret it.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact the Gambling Authority via the contact form (select the category “ROFUS – Exclusion from gambling”).
