There are many benefits in receiving relevant direct marketing offers. However, we recognise that there are occasions where individuals or businesses would like to unsubscribe, or ‘opt-out’ of direct marketing.
When you ask us to ensure your personal data is not used for direct marketing purposes, we will add your details to our own marketing suppression file. Any data for direct marketing purposes is screened against this file to ensure your details are not in future.
To ensure your wishes are maintained, we need to continue processing personal data about you on a suppression file. In order to do this, we will retain the minimum information necessary to identify you so that we can then prevent further unwanted processing if your personal data comes to us from another source. This activity is in the mutual interests of you, and us to make sure that you are not contacted if you don’t want to be and to ensure that we do not use your personal data in a way that you object to.
Please be aware that opting out of O’Brien Media Limited processing this data for direct marketing, does not stop your data from being collected by other organisations.
Our policy is to suppress your details within 30 days of your request.
If you wish to minimise the amount of marketing communication you receive from all organisations, there are several industry opt-out lists which you can subscribe to, depending on the communication channel:
Postal Marketing – You can opt out of postal marketing by registering with the Mailing Preference Service (MPS) at http://www.mpsonline.org.uk/. This is an industry-wide service administered by the Direct Marketing Association and recognised by the Information Commissioner.
Telephone Marketing (B2C / Individuals / Sole Traders) – You can opt out of domestic telemarketing activity by registering your details within the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) at https://www.tpsonline.org.uk/
Telephone Marketing (B2B / Companies / Corporates) – You can opt out of corporate telemarketing activity by registering your details within the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (CTPS) at http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/whatiscorporatetps.html
Opt-Out only from our marketing list suppliers
You may wish to request suppression directly with marketing data list suppliers. We respect the key transparency requirements under GDPR, and have therefore provided direct links to data suppliers who source the data we use for direct marketing, who each have their own suppression procedures.
