In May next year, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force. The GDPR applies to all personal data, which is any information relating to an identified, or identifiable individual, including employees and people acting in a business capacity, meaning all businesses will be affected.
Talk to us about
- How upcoming changes in data protection will affect all businesses
- There are also potential specific changes in relation to email marketing, which could significantly impact B2B approaches to new prospects. While those changes have not been finalized, the effect could be that businesses will only be permitted to send marketing emails to new prospects if they have requested or given their explicit consent.
- It should also be noted the GDPR comes into force pre-Brexit, but the UK Government has already published a statement of intent around implementing a domesticated version post-Brexit. The UK intends to keep pace with EU data protection law, meaning the GDPR is here to stay.
