Where personal data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing, the data subject should have the right to object to such processing, including profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing, whether with regard to initial or further processing, at any time and free of charge

Article 21
Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

Where the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes. Contextual targeting offers solution to strict GDPR regulations. Programmatic online advertising will not cease to exist because of the GDPR or the proposed ePrivacy Directive.

Contextual targeting offers solution to strict GDPR regulations

Personally-identifiable information (PII) may seem essential to digital advertising, but it is not the only way to target a relevant audience. Targeting based on context was a reliable method for decades before we came to rely on collecting and cross-referencing vast amounts of intrusive data. Analysis of the marketing material released by DSPs listed on the Display Lumascape shows that it will be possible for advertisers to reach audiences despite the GDPR and ePrivacy Directive.

DSPs are already able to target based on content and context. * Brandscreen was reported as having again been placed in administration in late-2016 and we could find no clear information on its current status. Whether DSPs implement their own solutions for contextual targeting or use external partners, forthcoming EU regulations will not mean the end of programmatic advertising. 11 steps to your consent and permissions. Fast.MAP and the Institute of Fundraising have published a new guide for charity fundraisers and marketers, offering a step-by-step approach to securing compliant consent and permissions.

11 steps to your consent and permissions

The guide is published as charities take action to be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and following fines levied by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on 13 large charities for misuse of personal data. David Cole, MD of fast.MAP, explains in the introduction to the 13-page guide: “‘Consent’ is now the new front line for marketing and the implications for every charity are far more profound than a change to a tick-box or a data structure.” He added that the guide’s function is “to inspire, rather than be prescriptive, because each charity, when embracing consent, will plot their own path.”

GDPR awareness, readiness and compliance in the US, UK and Belgium. The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) represents a massive change in personal data protection and privacy.

GDPR awareness, readiness and compliance in the US, UK and Belgium

In combination with the ePrivacy Regulation it is changing the EU privacy and security landscape completely. While the GDPR text has been published, the ePrivacy Regulation isn’t final yet. However, achieving GDPR compliance is a massive task and time runs out. Companies across the globe who process personal data of EU ‘data subjects’ (as the GDPR impacts them too) are taking measures. Yet, we often hear how many aren’t prepared at all. What the ICO guidance on GDPR says, and what we think about it. Since the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) announced its plans for general data protection regulation (GDPR) guidance earlier this year, I have no doubt that fundraisers and those involved in direct marketing in charities have been waiting with bated breath to see what the ICO’s interpretation of the new regulation is, and what it will require.

What the ICO guidance on GDPR says, and what we think about it

The first piece of detailed guidance was published at the start of March for a four-week consultation, and focuses on consent under the GDPR. It’s not just about fundraising As Kristy Weakley at Civil Society rightly says, while the GDPR has mostly been at the top of fundraisers’ agenda, the changes won’t just apply to fundraising. They will apply to all pieces of personal data collected, processed and stored: so also to marketing, campaigning, communications, volunteering and beneficiary databases. The basic concept of consent, and its main role as a lawful condition for processing, is not new. A lack of clear guidance over the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is stifling businesses ability to prepare for it.

The lugubrious ticking of my internal GDPR Doomsday Clock struck a minute closer to midnight last week.

A lack of clear guidance over the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is stifling businesses ability to prepare for it

Tick, it chimed: “only 5 per cent of marketers fully understand what the GDPR means for their business.” Tock, it said: “50 per cent say they don’t really understand it at all, or [literally] don’t know.” The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) drop a statistical A-bomb in my inbox, and all hope of anyone making sense of the biggest ever overhaul of data regulation, is gone. It’s becoming painfully clear that many businesses – whether marketers or else – have neither the time, resources or know-how to deal with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.

Implementation is 431 days away, and yet, the CIM/ YouGov poll finds just 11 per cent of businesses already have systems in place to ensure compliance. There’s too much else happening.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has issued a £70,000 fine against Flybe and a £13,000 fine against Honda Motor Europe Ltd for breaching Regulation 22 of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) by sending emails requesting individuals to update their marketing preferences.

ICO Issues Fine for Marketing Emails Disguised as Service Messages

The two cases confirm that: the interpretation by the ICO of what constitutes “marketing material” is very wide; andthe ICO will take enforcement action against organisations that seek to circumvent the rules on direct marketing by disguising marketing messages as service messages. Flybe sent emails with the subject line “Are your details correct?” And advised individuals to update out-of-date information and marketing preferences. The emails were sent to over 3 million individuals who had opted out of marketing messages.

On the other hand, Honda sent emails titled “Would you like to hear from Honda?” This is potentially a significant area of future enforcement by the ICO. GDPR: What does it mean for US digital startups in Europe? — ATLANTIC LEAP. A survey of large American multinationals by PwC revealed that 71% of respondents have already begun preparing for GDPR by assessing two things: the gap between their current data protection practice and the requirements of GDPR, and discovering the data they already hold, of which over half is likely to be unknown to the business itself. 54% have begun de-identifying their European data by deleting or masking elements of the personal data they hold.

Tim Willett, head of funding strategy at the charity, says the summer fundraiser had a response rate of 32.8 per cent, compared with 10.4 per cent in 2015 The RNLI trebled its response rate and average donation from supporters when it experimented with its first fundraising appeal in which it marketed only to people who had opted to receive communications, according to Tim Willett, head of funding strategy at the charity.

RNLI's first opt-in appeal trebles response rate

In an interview with Third Sector, Willett said the RNLI, which has spent the past year moving to an opt-in system of communications, wanted to test the theory that marketing to a smaller pool of highly engaged donors would generate better results than fundraising from all of the charity’s supporters. When it did this with its annual summer fundraising appeal, the response rate was 32.8 per cent – more than triple the 10.4 per cent rate the charity achieved in 2015.

Fundraising & Regulatory Compliance Conference 2017. Why charities need to be prepared for GDPR. What is GDPR? From 25th May 2018 ‘The General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR) will apply to all charities and businesses in the UK. GDPR differs from the Data Protection Act and places stricter rules on how data is collected, maintained and processed. GDPR will also extend the definition of ‘personal data’ to include not only traditional manual records, but new online sources too, such as an IP address, where consent to store and use data is much harder to obtain. Charities will need to ensure that they clearly affirm that consent has been obtained or there is a risk of substantial fines.
