Industry News | 08/06/21
The Information Commissioner’s Office fined the Conservative Party £10,000 for sending 51 marketing emails to people who did not want to receive them.
The ICO found the Conservative Party failed to retain clear records of the basis upon which people had consented to receive marketing emails, as required by law. In particular, the party failed to ensure records of those who had unsubscribed from its marketing emails were transferred properly when it changed email provider.
