CAP consultation on marketing to children and naming prizewinners

During its consultation on the use of data for marketing, CAP identified two issues that require further consultation: the age at which consent to marketing can be given by children in the absence of consent from the holder of parental responsibility (which is, in part, affected by Article 8 of the GDPR and section 9 of the Data Protection Act 2018); and the lawful basis for publishing the personal data of prizewinners (which is affected by the bases for processing personal data set out in Article 6 of the GDPR).

We have now opened a new consultation on these two remaining issues, which is now open.

This further consultation will last for four weeks, closing at 5pm on 7 December 2018, and responses can be sent to adpolicy@cap.org.uk.
