    Drowning under GDPR emails


    3 Not allowed!
    Itís ironic that from the numerous GDPR emails Iím receiving there are so many different approaches being taken - opt back in, do nothing, re state your preferences. Iíve even had one that says weíll continue to contact you if you do nothing, implying a very light touch approach. It kinda defeats the point. They canít all be right!
    never forget what Stanley, Archer and Bellotti did

      Yep. I feel your pain and I have overall responsibility for delivering GDPR at our place.

      Will make a final decision next couple of days about which approach to take for this particular element but given the wide range of approaches, I won't lose too much sleep (on this bit at least).

      I found myself chuckling to myself on the train this morning. Sat next to a girl who had been sent a monster email on GDPR (Why do people open up their emails for all to view on trains?). She was clearly struggling to take it all in and ended up just scrolling up and down for 15 minutes. I felt she was clearly going to take the "hope for the best" pathway.

      Will be worth it (cleaner inbox) in the end. Wish they'd do it every 12 months.
      I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      Everytime something like this comes along people set up companies and mostly scare people into doing it through them, they then take the money and close. Ignore them, just do a bit of reseach to see what you need to do,
      I am a sole trader, i hold some customers details but i dont use them except for accounts, but i could call them back every now and again to see if i can help them, but i dont, i have downloaded a template that i adjusted to suit my buisness and put it on the website, for me i think that is all i need to do, it is probably a lot more depending on your company and what you do with peoples details.

      Most of the ones I’ve received, even from the big companies, have actually got it wrong as well so will end up needlessly losing customers. The best I received was from White Stuff so might use that approach when I send ours out later this week
      Pretentious,moi?

      Right, we had a meeting today, I am going to give a very simple but factual example of how it is supposedly (not) going to work for us.....I build new houses by the way...

      Scenario......Mrs White rings into customer services, her kitchen door handle is sticking and won't function properly...........At this point we would issue the defect / snag to our Carpenter for that site, give him Mrs Whites contact details (Phone / E mail address etc) he will contact her make an appointment and rectify the issue.....

      What we were told today.........We (company) write (must be a letter as an e mail can be doctored etc) to Mrs White asking her if we can give our Carpenter her contact details, we also explain she MUST write back to us (stamped address envelope included in the out bound letter) giving us permission, a form is included as well...........we then forward the details to the carpenter who has to abide by her contact rules and hopefully arranges an appointment.

      Now, Mrs Whites door handle is really not a major issue, as I asked, what do we do when Mr Brown rings up saying he has water leaking through his ceiling very likely to do with a copper / plastic pipe issue.......... After they looked at each other.......I suggested that maybe we used "next day delivery mail" as by then hopefully only the downstairs will be ruined!!

      It is all bollocks!!!!! as is the anal claim world we live in!!! CRAP!!

      And you've been told incorrectly. Email is fine just as long as you store it as is a phone recording.
      The devil whispered in my ear : "You're not strong enough to withstand the storm."
      I whispered in the devils ear : " I am the storm."
