Why N.H. Lottery Hasn’t Compromised Its Privacy Policy

A New Hampshire lottery, the first of its kind in the United States, is facing a lawsuit that says the lottery’s privacy policy violates the First Amendment.

The lottery, which runs a lottery at the University of New Hampshire, said in a statement Tuesday that it’s working with a law firm to settle the lawsuit.

The complaint, filed in the federal court in Manhattan, is asking for unspecified monetary damages and an order that the lottery and its employees protect the lottery from a lawsuit brought by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a nonprofit privacy organization.

“This lawsuit is a thinly veiled attempt to attack the lottery by claiming that N.J. Lotteries privacy policy is a violation of the First and Fourth Amendments,” said Eileen Wahl, director of government affairs at the EPC.

“While we have no doubt that NGH Lotterys privacy policy protects its users, the lottery cannot defend its actions based on these unsubstantiated claims.”

The lottery’s public-facing website and online form for purchasing tickets does not appear to have any privacy or security protections, according to the complaint.

The suit was filed in June by the EPP, which said the lottery violated the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, and New Jersey law.

The EPC claims the lottery violates the federal Electronic Communications Act by failing to properly protect users from fraudulent and offensive messages posted online.

The state lottery did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
