The Positives And Negatives Of GDPR

This is not going to be an overview of the entire effects of the Regulations, but mainly how the provisions have affected email marketing. Many suggested, during the prolonged gestation of the GDPR, that the compromises forced on the regulators would ensure that it would be toothless and unfocused. Has this turned out to be … READ MORE »

The Second Anniversary Of The GDPR

A little more than two years ago we were concerned about the implications of the GDPR which, after a gestation period of some five years, had finally been implemented. The predictions were varied. Some suggested it would be just the thing to reassure customers and encourage them to join email marketing lists, while others suggested … READ MORE »

GDPR and how it does not affect Christmas

I know you are not that interested in my problems, not with Christmas coming and not knowing if Brexit is, but getting known as a writer on the GDPR and email marketing has a certain downside this time of the year. I’m being pointed to as the bloke who told the headmistress of my grandchildren’s … READ MORE »

Responding to GDPR requests for personal data

If you have email marketing lists it's likely that you will receive requests from subscribers for details of the personal data you hold.

What GDPR requires for portable data?

Not time to lose; GDPR and email marketing

I’ve had some strange emails over the last week or so. Some are ostensibly email marketing, others are newsletters, and most of these have been generated by the need to check my permissions. This is cutting it fine. There is a variation of forms of enquiries. One, from a company which I subscribe to their … READ MORE »

When will the GDPR affect email marketing?

I’ve received 17 emails and one letter regarding the GDPR. They have all asked me to confirm my details and permissions. One apologised, rather oddly, for contacting me outside of the ‘normal’ contact methods. Normal here, I think, implies in conformity with the current regulations.  It shows that many companies are treating the GDPR as … READ MORE »

The go-live date of the GDPR

Are we there yet? Given the considerable amount of information being published each day on the GDPR, anyone with an email marketing list or data on employees might well think that the legislation is live now. Yet we still have weeks to go.  Or do we? There’s a website I use for research that has … READ MORE »
