The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations in May 2018 was a watershed moment in charity marketing and communications.

The ICO has provided guidance that confirms that direct mail is allowed under legitimate interest, if it passes a three-part test – including a balancing test, stating that “you still need to do some work to identify your precise purpose and show that it is legitimate in the specific circumstances”.

If thoughtfully and responsibly executed and with all the obligations required under GDPR to use legitimate interest properly met – direct mail is an incredibly effective and powerful channel for response rates and engagement. It should remain an important part of charities’ fundraising efforts.
