GDPR and explicit consent: challenges and opportunities

Consent is a core part of data protection legislation. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect from 25 May 2018 and aims to provide clarity on the previously contentious issue of obtaining an individual’s consent in order to process their personal information.

The side effect of the rapid growth in sharing personal information is that we know that our personal details are out there in the wild, probably being shared among hackers, and sold by crime syndicates.

Clumsy checkouts: the surest way to cart abandonment

According to behavioral marketing agency SaleCycle, almost 75% of all online shopping carts are abandoned globally. With 70.9% and 74% respectively, Europe and the US actually rank the lowest.

Letters to a customer: Mandates, authentication and non-repudiation
