Information Commissioner’s Office publishes guidance for companies receiving unwanted marketing
The Information Commissioner’s Office (the ICO) has published some helpful guidance for companies wanting to reduce unwanted direct marketing.
The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 give some limited protection to corporate bodies, which is in contrast to the protection afforded by the Data Protection Act 1998 which only applies to individuals.
The guidance can be found on their website at http://www.ico.org.uk/for_organisations/guidance_index and contains some very useful tips.
