(b) The transmitted data must not include card specific information, live gaming data, or any other gambling information; and
(c) Except for a confirmation notification from the network that the shuffler data was successfully received, there may only be one-way communication from the card shuffling device to the secure cellular network; and
(d) Transmitted information may only be accessed by the licensee or licensed manufacturer; and
(e) A record must be kept of all information transmitted and made available to us upon request.
