GDPR News Story

URGENT: We need you to opt-in to our Marketing Materials!

Everyone is talking about GDPR Compliance at the moment and we want to make sure that you stay with us when the legislation is enforced on 25th May 2018.

What is GDPR and why do I need to Opt-in?

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the new legislation that is being enforced on 25th May 2018. This means that any business that treats or uses the personal data of EU citizens, will have to comply to this legislation or they can be fined up to €20m or 4% of their global annual turnover.

To comply with GDPR, businesses will have to give their customers more control over their own personal data and be more clear and specific on what that data will be used for. This means that most companies will be asking their customers to opt-in because that way the company will have a record that the data subject has given the company permission to contact them via the details that they have provided. You will also notice that most companies will be asking you to double opt-in, meaning that once you click to subscribe, you will be sent a confirmation email to the email address that you provided. This is because anyone could type in anyone else’s email address but with the confirmation email, only you’ll be able to sign up therefore giving you more control of what happens with your data.

We would love to contact you via phone, post and email. The content that we send will consist of updates, news and promotions that we believe will benefit you and you will enjoy. We will never spam you or pass your details on to any other company and you can unsubscribe or request for us to stop contacting you at any time.

To ensure that you still receive updates, news and promotions that we believe will benefit you and your company, please opt-in clicking the link below, filling out the form with the relevant information and accepting the confirmation email. We hope you enjoy our future marketing materials.

Stay with us, please Opt-in here!

 

Kind Regards,
Team Mercia
