GDPR is mainly focused on the marketing efforts of Business to Consumer organisations. As Budgeting Solutions is a Business to Business organisation the regulations that surround GDPR are different. Here are a few common queries:
Does GDPR apply to business-to-business marketing?
Yes. The GDPR applies wherever you are processing ‘personal data’. This means if you can identify an individual either directly or indirectly, then GDPR will apply – even if they are acting in a professional capacity.
GDPR mean you need consent for marketing?
Not always. Consent is one lawful basis for processing, but there are alternatives. In particular, organisations may be able to use ‘legitimate interests’ to justify their business-to-business marketing.
When can organisations use ‘legitimate interests’ for marketing?
You can use ‘legitimate interests’ if the way an organisation use people’s data is proportionate, i.e. has a minimal privacy impact, and people would not be surprised or likely to object to what you are doing.
