Handing and managing data is a challenge for any organisation but with the recent changes in data protection laws including GDPR, and the changes that were made to PECR in 2018 seem to have slipped under a lot of businesses radar.
You may be asking - What is PECR?
PECR stands for The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, this sits alongside the Data Protection Act and the GDPR. It gives people specific privacy rights in relation to electronic communications including:
- Marketing calls, emails and texts
- Cookies and similar technologies
- Keeping communications services secure
- Customer privacy as regards to traffic and location data, itemised billing, line identification, and directory listings
