how the law affects your marketing
The Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 cover almost all marketing uses of customer and prospect data.
Whether you are using postal or electronic data and whether you operate in B2C or B2B markets the law applies to your marketing.
Visible compliance with data protection legislation can be a significant brand virtue but bad marketing permission management can damage your customer relationships.
