Plain language guide for electronic privacy rules

The Information Commissioners Office has updated its online guidance pages about the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. The new pages have been designed as a plain language guide, making it easier to find out what’s relevant to your organisation.

PECR sit alongside the Data Protection Act, giving people more privacy in relation to electronic communications. The guide is for organisations that wish to send electronic marketing messages (by phone, fax, email or text), use cookies, or provide electronic communication services to the public. See
