We all know what GDPR is but what is PECR?

As this helpful guide from the Information Commissioner’s Office explains, The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) sit alongside the Data Protection Act and the GDPR. They give people specific privacy rights in relation to electronic communications.

PECR specifically looks at the electronic communications an organisation or business makes and how to ensure compliance with the regulations.

In essence, this relates to how an organisation sends communications out, such as marketing emails, texts and other methods of contact.

It may not be the most exciting thing to spend your time on but it’s an important legal and administrative process that requires time and resources.

Even if it’s not something you do yourself, this proves it needs to be done by someone!

A quick online search will give you lots of templates and guidance on how to approach assessment of what your business needs to do and produce the documents that demonstrate your compliance.
