Webinar Details:

Members Webinar for Principals, Directors and Staff: 26 August 2020 11.00 to 12.00

On 16 April we advised members that the Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) issued a report on the use of cookies on websites. The DPC had conducted a sweep across a range of sectors, including insurance. Within this, the DPC has stated that they will look at enforcement based on this guidance after the deadline date of 5 October. It is important that members with websites review and comply with these requirements

Meanwhile, on 1 May the DPC included on its website a FAQs about the rules which apply to electronic direct marketing, specifically the rules about when consent is required, the limited exception when marketing to existing customers as long as further specific requirements are met (such as providing a clear opt-out mechanism), and how data subjects can object to the use of their personal data for electronic direct marketing.

Brokers Ireland is holding a webinar on 26 August which will cover these topics. It is important that members are aware of their responsibilities and duties under GDPR, Data Protection Act, and the E Privacy Regulations. Your attendance is encouraged.
