  • Question about LinkedIn and emails

    My situation is that we are publishing a list of the top 25 UK figures in a specific technology. We would like to notify those figures that they've been chosen before we publish, but we have not been given their email addresses.

    My questions are:
    1) If we are able to obtain those email addresses from the public domain (but haven't been given explicit consent from the people to use those email addresses), is it admissible to email them in order to ask them if they want to be featured? Does this fall under 'legitimate interest'?
    2) If we message these people on social media instead of emailing (i.e. LinkedIn and/or Twitter), but we are not currently 'connected' to them, is this admissible under GDPR?

  • EU GDPR compliance

    1. will this help me make my websites (cookie bar, privacy policy, terms of service, shop, contact form and newsletter) form fully compliant?

    2. Do I have full support in all the above steps or there is any limitation in terms of the times I can ask?

    3. And since my websites are visited and used by people from all over the world, do I have to comply with other non-EU countries regulation too? Or is GDPR implementation enough to these countries?
    I am asking this, because maybe there is need of another package to buy.

  • GDPR consent and scope identification

    Hi i want your help to implement consent management in the following scenario additionally please help to identify SCOPE as well:

    ABC company offers freight and logistic management application to UK business. application allows creation of admin user and then administrator creates multiple user in the application. Administrator created/assigned username and password are then used by corresponding staff to carry out there task/access the application. during this process (name, email id, username and password ) details are stored in Azure hosting server (maintained by Administrator). so, how the consent management should be implemented and complied in the application. (is it require to maintain consent for administrator only or for all the users having access to application) or not at all. during the process of accessing the application end user IP and location is also stored in application. application is build based on the requirement from UK based business and not published on ABC's website. so how to identify scope. as i am not sure whether gdpr can be applied to only specific product of the organization and not whole organization.

  • Appropriateness of requiring people to give their name/email in order to download special content from website

    Could you send me more information on your opinion on the appropriateness of requiring people to give us their name/email in order to download special content from our website? I’ve run into several different views on this issue, some of which are fine with it, and others opposed. In the webinar this morning, it appeared that you think this runs afoul of the voluntary consent requirements.

  • Asking for subscription consent with first newsletter

    We are planning to send out a newsletter and we have a lot of contacts and we want to keep them up to date. We didn't really ask them if they wanted us to contact them and if they wanted the newsletter. We are planning to first contact them and ask them if they wish for us to keep them up to date via newsletter. Is this compliant with EU GDPR and is it legal within the EU?

  • Disclosing identity of user in a copyright infringement proceeding

  • Cold calling via e-mail to website visitors or potential customers with a presumed interest

    We are a small software development company. In order to generate new leads, the current procedure is to research new customers that are interested in the company on the Internet. In other words, if we see that the researched company has vacancies in software development or the company was on our website, we will write to them and draw their attention to our services or, in some cases, offer a conversation. In order to reach the target person, the direct email is often sent instead of the company email (info @ ..).

    Our question to you now: If someone is of interest to us and we can assume a presumed interest, can we contact these people directly via email and present our services? Are we allowed to cold-call website visitors or potential new customers via email if we see on their homepage that they have vacancies in software development and that our services would be advantageous here?

    I look forward to your feedback!
