Data Science & Compliance
The data landscape has just seen the biggest shake-up of the last 20 years, are you up-to-date and making the most of it?
Contact Data has seen much negative press, but well thought-out, compliant and sophisticated data-driven marketing is more refined and effective than ever before, enabling you to target the right people, with the right products or services, with the right permissions, via the right channels and at the right time.
As we all know, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2016 came into force on 25th May 2018 and from this date the 2016 regulation was enforceable. The GDPR replaced the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) and superseded the laws of individual Member States that were developed in compliance with it.
The purpose of the GDPR is to protect the ‘rights & freedoms’ of natural persons (people) and to ensure there is far greater accountability on how their personal data is collected, stored and processed. Ultimately the goal is to ensure that their personal data is not processed without their knowledge and where practicable without their consent.
Here at Permission Media Group, we champion the GDPR. Consent means everything to us and we feel that wherever possible it should be the legal basis for marketing. Not only from an ethical standpoint, but also from a commercial one, marketing is far more effective, when one’s marketing touch-points engage individuals who have consented to, or better yet requested, your engagement and are aware of why and how you are processing their personal data.
