The digital marketing guide to GDPR

People receiving marketing emails from their smart phones

One of the departments in your organisation most likely to be affected by GDPR are marketing professionals. This is because under GDPR, the requirements for obtaining consent to collect and process data have changed and new rights have been introduced. The guidance given in this blog will help your marketing team prepare for GDPR and decide on the next steps they need to take to reach full compliance.

Assessment: how ready are you for GDPR?

Marketing lists

In June 2017, JD Weatherspoons felt the best way to become compliant with GDPR was to delete it’s entire marketing list. While this may be the favourable approach for the pub chain, GDPR certainly does not require businesses to delete their entire marketing list.

Organisations can provide customer details to third parties only if they made this clear when the information was being collected. Records of how consent was obtained must be clear if the list is being used for making marketing calls, texts, or emails.

Charitable and political donations policy template

Ringbinder full of donations

Charitable donations are often used as a conduit for making bribes

While many large corporations strive to support worthy charitable causes across the world as well as the local community, it is important that staff are aware of the types of donations that are acceptable. It is also important that charitable donations made go directly to the charity and are not benefited by a political party or campaign. Charitable donations are often used to make bribes. Therefore, having a charitable and political donations policy in place will help ensure that donations to charities are made appropriately and don’t fall into the wrong hands.

VinciWorks’ charitable and political donations policy can be downloaded for free by clicking the button below. The template can easily be edited to suit your organisation’s industry and procedures. As well as creating a policy, it is also important staff undergo the appropriate anti-bribery training to allow them to identify suspicions of bribery.

How many days are there until the General Data Protection Regulation?

Gifts and hospitality registers with Omnitrack

How does your organisation collect and process all gifts and corporate hospitality that are given to your staff? How do you keep track of all the gifts given to and received by staff to current or potential clients?

Regulators in many industries including legal, pharmaceutical, construction, education and financial services demand that organisations collect, analyse and report on legal and compliance requirements to mitigate bribery risk. Further, professional services firms’ clients often expect their firms to have in place training and registers for Gifts and Hospitality.

Globally, organisations are bound by complex and ever-changing legal and compliance obligations. Without a structured and secure data collection system, organisations waste time and resources ensuring compliance and uncovering business intelligence. Omnitrack is VinciWorks’ solution to collecting, storing and managing data. It allows managers to be instantly notified of any gifts that are given or received, thereby enabling them to make an informed decision on next steps.
