The event took place on July 8th from 9:30 to 10:30 am and featured a presentation and discussion led by Robert Haniver, senior associate at Mason Hayes and Curran. This was followed by a Q&A session with Robert where participants could ask questions about their companies and their data and also gave people networking opportunities.
Participants learnt how to classify themselves and remain compliant with data protection laws. Robert then went on to explain the rules governing email marketing, newsletter campaigns and opt-out facilities.
