Privacy Preserving Marketing

Privacy Preserving Targeted Marketing – Stay Clear of the “Creepy Line”

Data is the new gold in digital business and personalized communication is the key to success. However, respect for privacy plays an important role in today's marketing and communication. Build trust and gain loyalty of your customers through privacy preserving marketing.


What Should I Keep In Mind When Implementing Privacy Preserving Marketing?

Keep Personalization and Privacy In Balance:

• Usage of data needs to be limited to the essential and necessary extent covered by the T&C of your marketing activities.
• Consent should be clear and unambiguous and not to be assumed from inaction.
• Consumers should be given an easy option to opt-out from marketing activities.
• Do not cross the “creepy line”, where too much personalization becomes displeasing.


Worldwide Legal Regulations Require Data Protection Measures

• General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe
• Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) in Japan
• California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) California
• Lei Geral de Protecao de Dados (LDPD) in Brasil
• …

GDPR came into force in May 2018. Since then, several other countries have used the GDPR guidelines as a basis for creating their own data protection regulations. Although some of these are less strict than the GDPR principles, they still force many companies to rethink their privacy measures. 

Privacy as a Conviction-based Motivator for Purchases

Companies that do not comply with data protection regulations not only risk fines, they also risk losing a customer forever. How a company deals with a consumer's privacy is an important decision criterion in the purchasing process. Studies show that privacy matters to customers.

In addition, a recent study by Cisco, most organizations are seeing very positive returns on their privacy investments, and more than 40% are seeing benefits at least twice as high as their spendings on data protection. This shows that investments in data protection also pay off financially.


Be Data Smart - Think Before You Do

When designing privacy preserving marketing campaigns it is important to keep the following principle in mind: 

Don't do to other's data what you would not want done to yours. 

If you consider this principle from the very beginning, you have laid the foundations for privacy preserving marketing.
