The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has just posted an interesting blog explaining how it investigates who is behind nuisance calls, emails and texts. Take a look here !

This provides an insight into the extensive detective work that goes on behind the scenes.

The ICO carries out mystery shopper exercises; signs up to websites and responds to adverts to monitor the correspondence it receives.

As a result, it has handed out a number of large fines this year to companies for breaking rules relating to marketing.

Make sure your company does not fall foul of the ICO.
