Demystifying affordability part one: What is affordability?

first_imgThe remote customer interaction – Consultation and Call for Evidence recently closed on the 9th February 2021 and is set to determine at what threshold operators will be required to conduct affordability assessments, what an affordability assessment consists of and how operators will be expected to interact with their customers based on their affordability. The Gambling Commission’s enforcement action over the past few years against operators on social responsibility failings including failures in respect to assessing customer affordability shows that affordability checks are already an expectation of the regulator and this consultation is to formalise what is already being enforced.   In addition, the Gambling Commission also states that it would not be expected that anyone could spend their entire discretionary income without experiencing gambling-related harm. This has contributed in part to greater public awareness of gambling regulation and, as a result, consultations on topics such as affordability and the long-awaited 2005 Gambling Act Review.  Topics: Social responsibility Tech & innovation CSR Problem gambling Responsible gambling Regtech In a new a three-part series, Sonny Cott – operations manager for affordability solutions provider BeBettor – explains one of the most important topics for gambling operators in 2021: affordability. The series will lay out what regulators such as the GB Gambling Commission mean by affordability, what it takes to have an effective affordability check process and some of the common misconceptions many in the betting and gaming industry have about the concept. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Demystifying affordability part one: What is affordability? Regions: UK & Ireland Outside pressure on affordability regulation The affordability conversation has not only been pushed forward by the regulator, as the government has taken a strong interest in gambling regulation as a whole. The Remote Customer Interaction ConsultationA culmination of the above factors, increased public interest and enforcement action taken by the Commission against operators for social responsibility failings including record fines, licence suspensions and revocations, resulted in the regulator launching a consultation to provide clarity on affordability. Tags: Gambling Commission Affordability BeBettor This layered approach consists of both tailored affordability checks and interactions based on the profile of the customer and how much they are wanting to spend.  The review stated that the Commission would consult on whether operators should have to set limits on customer spend, until an operator knew more about their customer. An affordability check was an example used for how an operator could do this. The GC’s Enforcement Report for 2018-19 highlighted that its enforcement team had reviewed numerous cases where individuals demonstrated gambling-related harm but were allowed to continue to gamble without effective engagement. The Commission’s recent National Strategic Assessment stated it best when it said “individuals spending more than they can afford to lose is one of the harms most associated with gambling. Harm can be significant even at low spending levels as the level of spend at which harms begin to occur depends on the consumer’s discretionary income”. In the July 2019 formal guidance for remote gambling operators, the GC repeated the importance of affordability when operators develop their customer interaction policies.  Having developed a solution over the past three years and worked closely with operators, we’ve seen those that adopt a layered approach to affordability greatly strengthen their responsible gaming frameworks and apply appropriate affordability assessments at different stages in the customer journey. Since that first mention in 2018, the affordability conversation has developed into a main focus in the UK market, gaining attention from not only the regulator and industry but also media, politicians and the public.  Discretionary Income – the key metricIn the recent Remote Customer Interaction Consultation and Call for Evidence the GC states that they consider “the most relevant way of assessing how much consumers may have to spend before beginning to experience harms as a result of their gambling is through discretionary income,” not disposable income. That is, income after both tax and spending on necessities such as food, travel and housing.  This means that a consumer with high living costs may be able to afford to spend much less on gambling than a similar earner with less to spend on essentials. The House of Lords Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry released a report in July 2020. Their recommendations included the Commission having to explain the minimum steps which operators must take when considering customer affordability, and make it clear that it is for the operator to take steps which will enable them to identify customers who are betting more than they can afford.  The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Gambling Related Harm published its findings of an inquiry into online gambling harm which – along with a number of recommendations – advised affordability checks should inform deposit limits for customers.  Sonny Cott | by www.andynewbold.com With the Covid-19 pandemic reaching the UK in early 2020, the Commission released its Additional formal guidance for remote operators during the Covid-19 outbreak, in which it instructed operators to conduct affordability assessments for individuals picked up by existing or new thresholds and triggers which indicate they are experiencing harm.  A proposed solution to mitigate these harms would be to conduct affordability checks to ensure customers can afford their level of spend and apply appropriate customer interactions as a result of such checks. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “Disposable income data identifies clear benchmarks that should drive social responsibility triggers which will help identify gambling related harm,” the regulator said.  Regtech If customers were to fund their gambling by using funds that are needed to support necessities, this would be unsustainable and have the potential to cause gambling-related harm as the customer’s quality of life would no doubt be affected.  In the second part of this series, we will examine this approach in more detail. Discretionary income therefore lies at the heart of the affordability conversation. The challenge for operators is how to assess a customer’s affordability and their discretionary income in an ongoing way throughout the relationship with a customer, balancing both the need to protect the customer, the customer’s privacy and the customer’s own free will. Operators should note that the regulator continues to advise that these two formal guidance notes remain enforceable. This means that these should be considered in advance of the outcome of the customer interaction consultation. This series will look to first set the regulatory context, before shedding light on the most important areas operators must consider when addressing affordability. The series will cover the benefits of automating affordability processes, the concept of a layered approach to affordability, the importance of non-intrusive affordability checks and how to develop affordability frameworks that deliver high levels of player protection while respecting the privacy and convenience of the customer. The Gambling CommissionWhen affordability was first mentioned by the GC in the 2018 Review of online gambling, it was in the context of customer due diligence.  26th April 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle The Social Market Foundation, the cross-party think-tank, published a report – “Gambling review and reform: towards a new regulatory framework” – authored by James Noyes that first put forward the proposal of a soft cap of £100 per month on net deposits. It argued £100 was a figure which is more than what the majority of gamblers spend and ensures gambling activities do not amount to serious financial harm.  In this document, it made a key distinction: between ‘disposable income’ (income after tax) and ‘discretionary income’ (income after taxes and living costs). It said that spending a significant amount of one’s discretionary income on gambling would be considered harmful. Affordability has been a widely debated topic in the industry over the past few years, first being mentioned back in the Gambling Commission’s 2018 Review of online gambling. But in recent months it has become one of the hottest topics in British gambling. Email Addresslast_img read more

Fisk and Brett create cloud-based supporter management system Donorfy

first_imgCommunity learningAn online user community is also being established, offering users the chance to share advice and ideas with users at other organisations, including via a live chatroom function.Donorfy Community will eventually offer learning and development opportunities through benchmarking, trends and peer-to-peer comparisons via anonymised data held within the system itself.Freemium modelDonorfy offers an unlimited number of users so there is no per-user charge.It will be available on a subscription model, based on the number of constituents in the database. Very small charities will be able to use it for free, to help them grow their charity.Larger and international charities can make use of bespoke, scalable options appropriate to their more sophisticated requirements.‘Disruptive technology’Robin Fisk describes Donorfy as “‘disruptive’ technology in the sense that it’s really easy to use, very smart and truly affordable, so it’s bringing about change by creating a level playing field; a universal platform suitable for every charity of every size”.He explained why they had built a new, cloud-based CRM from scratch:“We saw the need for a CRM system that is state-of-the-art in its sophistication and functionality, being able to accomplish the most complex fundraising tasks, yet one that is a simple joy to use.“Too often, small charities are still having to rely on home-made donor databases, and larger charities are running expensive systems that don’t work well in today’s world, or just won’t integrate well with other systems.“We have created Donorfy so that it is really easy and intuitive like the apps we all use every day; but above all it enhances and amplifies the work of fundraisers and supporter care teams. Being in the cloud means we can now make that affordable to small charities (free for the very small) as well as scalable and accomplished for the largest of NGOs.”Donorfy is being used by some early adopter organisations and will be launched in Spring/Summer this year.

Civil Rights hero Ruby Sales and white supremacy

first_imgRuby Sales (left) and Mikisa Thompson, Durham, N.C., Feb. 1.Durham, N.C. — For Black History Month, I would like to introduce or reintroduce you to Ruby Nell Sales. Born July 8, 1948, in Jemison, Ala., Ruby Sales is the founder and director of the Spirit House Project. She is one of 50 African Americans to be spotlighted in the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.I met Ruby Sales for the first time when she spoke at a Feb. 1 forum with community leaders and activists in Durham. Later, she spoke at North Carolina Central University, a historically Black university. Sales’ visit for Black History Month was sponsored by many local organizations.As a teenager in 1965, Ruby Sales participated in the Selma-to-Montgomery march, answering a call put out by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other organizers. Later that year, during organizing for the Black Civil Rights movement, Sales and activist Jonathan Myrick Daniels were jailed for trying to register voters in the Lowndes County town of Hayneville, Ala.Daniels pulled Sales out of the way and took a bullet that was meant to kill her on the steps of a convenience store, having been released from jail that same day. Daniels died from the shotgun blast fired by a county deputy sheriff. The deputy sheriff was later acquitted.At the sham trial, Daniels was vilified for reading “Communist literature while in jail and for wearing colored underwear.” Despite receiving death threats, 17-year-old Sales stood her ground and faced her oppressors, testifying in the face of many racists and white supremacists. She stood in the long line of Black women speaking out against injustice, like Mrs. Recy Taylor in Alabama in 1944 and Erica Garner in New York in 2014.Sales has said of Daniels: “He was the first white person who had said to me that I had pretty hair. It did take me aback a bit. Not that I didn’t think my hair was pretty. I had grown up being told that by other Black people. But I had never heard a white person say it. In some real ways, he was the first person I’d heard who said Black was beautiful, the first white person.” (Howard Mansfield, “The Movement’s Unheralded Hero,” Washington Post, Nov. 6, 1990)During the forum talk, Sales touched on many topics, but what stood out to me was white supremacy.Sales said, “White supremacy is a death sentence for the oppressor and the oppressed. It creates unnecessary fear.” This instilled an “aha” moment for me.The pseudoscience of white supremacy is derived from eugenics, which in 1883 was given the racist definition of “improvement of the human race germplasm through better breeding.” Genocide was, and is still, allowed due to a belief in eugenics — and fear. (DNA Science Blog, Sept. 21, 2017)In the U.S., an early legal upholding of eugenics came in 1927, relating to Carrie Buck. As the blog noted, Carrie Buck had been sterilized because her own child, her mother and Carrie were all said to be “feeble-minded.” Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. wrote in the ruling against them: “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”Fear makes it easy to create a system that systemically kills. Either you are literally killed by police because of the fear Black skin has been said to create. Or you are killed by many other forms of genocide, such as being penalized for being poor. Or your people are being bombarded with billboards in disenfranchised, redlined and gerrymandered neighbor­hoods that promote abortions for Black and Brown women. This is in stark contrast to what is found in white neighborhoods where the billboards tell you to find an alternative to ­abortions.In November 2017, I attended the Workers World Party National Conference in Newark, N.J. The conference was held to “Chart Our Next Steps in the Struggle to Smash White Supremacy, Capitalism, Imperialism — Fight for Socialism!”Sales was a reminder to me to keep this fight going into 2018. “Movement is painful, and it is continual,” said Sales.Revolution is a daily call to action. Agitations that help to decimate the racist counterrevolution are essential to our movement. Your call to action is to smash capitalism and smash nationalism. Sales said: “It creates the king’s foot soldiers.”Nationalism is the tool used by white supremacists to create Immigration and Customs Enforcement internment camps. Checkpoints to verify citizenship, as well as the denaturalization of citizenship are byproducts of white nationalism. For instance, this January an Indian-born man, Baljinder Singh, was the first person ever to be stripped of his American naturalization status under a new ICE initiative, Operation Janus.We all must continue to agitate for the eradication of ICE. When we do this, we are in turn against white nationalism, white supremacy and the vile wheels of capi­tal­ism that do not benefit us as workers.We cannot and must not go back. Fear can only lead us to death.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
