Not another bloody GDPR article!

Words by: Print Power
Hell’s teeth. In the past couple of days, brands we never even knew we had email subscriptions to have been bombarding us with pledges of eternal love and transparency. Below are a few we thought were kinda cool. And others that, well… weren’t.

In the wake of the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica debacle, privacy has become something of a big deal. And now that General Data Protection Regulation has officially kicked in, it’s an EVEN BIGGER DEAL.

Which is why, in a last-ditch effort to get their digital marketing houses in order before the 25 May deadline and save their contacts databases – don't worry, there's always DM – so many organisations (including Print Power) have been spamming us with policy updates and requests for ‘consent’.

Here are some of the more interesting, funny, outlandish or just plain coma-inducing comms tactics employed. Enjoy!

So, what’s social saying about the GDPR tsunami, then?
