ICO investigation into your business?

It is intimidating to start with to learn that the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is looking into your company for a potential violation of direct marketing laws. But the fear truly comes in when you are confronted with a series of inquiries and requests for documentation about laws that most people have never heard of.

 

The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (PECR) apply to your company if you use the phone or any electronic means (SMS, email, direct messages via social media) to contact customers for marketing purposes.

 

But the question is, if you were to come up against the ICO, can you provide “copies of any policies, procedures or training materials used to inform staff about compliance with PECR” – as requested in Q.14 of the ICO’s investigation letter?

 

If the answer is no, you need to enrol your staff on The Direct Marketing Laws online training course, which will teach them all they need to know to ensure your business is PECR compliant, helping you minimise the risk of investigation and prove your team has received the appropriate training should the ICO come knocking.
