Privacy Notices

How are the smallest businesses affected, and are all businesses required to do this; if not which types of businesses are exempt? Are you required to do this if your business is an eCommerce site that just takes name, email and tel details? Are you required to do this if you simply handle inquiries from clients via online forms and hold no databases? How does this affect the use of facilities such as Mailchimp and Awebber for email gathering and newsletters etc.? What if you generate leads for a company and pass on details of either businesses or private individuals as part of that contract? How would you deal with that aspect?

Answer:

In terms of Privacy Notices there are no exemptions regardless of the size or type of business, as long as you are a controller you need to present the relevant notices to the data subjects. E-commerce type businesses are not exempted so Notices are required as well. As for facilities as Mailchipm or Awebber they are only platforms that you can use to deliver mails or newsletters so the targeted dat a subjects need to be properly informed and to consent to be targeted by marketing campaigns. If you however want to generate leads and than pass the information to third parties you would need to obtain the consent of the data subjects for their information to be processed by those third parties.
