We recently looked at the big issue of GDPR and what it means for inbound marketers, and in particular focused on the two main areas the industry needs to be aware of – consent and legitimate interest. Here, in the second part of our piece on this new legislation that increases consumer data rights, we take a look at what needs to be done with the data we gather and process in order to be compliant and still manage to keep our inbound marketing strategies working.
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fast approaching, and there are probably a lot of nervous inbound marketers out there, wondering what their agency or business needs to do to be compliant with these strict new rules on personal data. In a recent blog, we outlined the 12 main things you need to know about, from data auditing to data security and breach reports, but here, we take a closer look at the two big areas of concern for inbound marketing: legitimate interest and consent.
By now you have probably heard lots of mentions of the upcoming GDPR legislation, but do you know what it will mean for your organisation? The fact of the matter is that, whether you are a multinational, an SME, a marketing department or an agency, you will need to not only put in place adequate measures that show you are compliant with data protection and data privacy, and data processing requirements such as consent and legitimate interest, but also document how you are compliant in these areas.
