Whether your business is new to online trading or you wish to ensure more established practices are lawful, in this breakfast briefing, data privacy experts will provide guidance on some of the key e-commerce and data protection issues to consider such as online terms and conditions, information notices and the ICO’s new draft Direct Marketing Code of Practice.
