Does the GDPR still allow me to send prospecting emails?
The GDPR "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) is the new European regulation decided in December 2015 which applies since 2018 to any company that collects, processes, and stores personal data whose use can directly or indirectly identify a person.
It is always possible to send prospecting e-mails. The does GDPR not change anything on this subject, as confirmed by the CNIL (National Commission for Data Processing and Liberties).
The CNIL specifies: "The object of the solicitation must be related to the profession of the person solicited (example: message presenting the merits of a software program to paul.toto@company name, IT manager.)".
Nothing that disrupts a coherent commercial strategy 😉
Dropcontact is the only 100% GDPR compliant solution for enriching contact files and sourcing email addresses:
- We don't sell leads. We enrich the files of prospects that you already have (and whose compliance with the GDPR).
- Unlike most solutions on the market, we do not use a database (neither purchased nor built up from our customers). We have developed our own algorithms for searching and verifying business email addresses. This allows us to be up to date and against the data obsolescence.
