With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect this morning, every single business that works with personal data has had to update their users on how they gather, manage and store their information.
While the main aim of the privacy regulation is to usher in a new set of digital rules for EU citizens, retailers, brands and fashion companies across the nation have been scrambling to ensure their customers actively opt into receiving their emails, newsletters, discounts and more. In addition, under GDPR, all retailers and brands must state clearly how they will use their customers' data, asking them to opt-in for each of those sections.
The best GPDR private policy updates
Which is why every retailer, brand and fashion company has been busy bombarding every single existing client in their databases with emails over the past few weeks, asking to 'stay in touch.' As fashion companies rush to ensure their update policies are in place to avoid hefty GDPR fines, FashionUnited shares some of its favourite GDPR emails below.
