GDPR – Exactly what can we do to approach unknown prospects by mail or email?

This is actually a question about the Privacy & Electronic Communication Regulations (PECR) although GDPR does have an impact.

PECR restrict unsolicited marketing by phone, fax, email, text, or other electronic message. There are different rules for different types of communication. The rules are generally stricter for marketing to individuals than for marketing to companies.

You will often need specific consent to send unsolicited direct marketing. The best way to obtain valid consent is to ask customers to tick opt-in boxes confirming they are happy to receive marketing calls, texts or emails from you.

GDPR – Getting business cards at meetings…. How to process them

This is personal data if it identifies an individual e.g. someones name in which case the GDPR apply.

You must not do anything which the subject would not expect. So if you are handed a business card by all means make contact but do not under any circumstances add the person to a mailing list without asking for their consent and recording that you have done so.
