In this webinar, Michael Buckworth, founder of Buckworths and an adviser for start-ups, explains the complexity of data protection compliance and everything you need to be aware of before launching your business.

Michael also discusses:

  • how you can create mailing lists, privacy policies, processing conditions and consent

  • how to use publicly available data

  • responding to subject access and deletion requests

Key takeaways from this session:

  • The rules on marketing emails vary depending on the nature of the recipient

  • Publicly available personal data remains personal data and subject to the Data Protection Act 2018

  • Walk away with a privacy policy in place which must reflect actual practices with regards to personal data
