It is early days for these new regulations, and there will be developments over the coming months as the UK establishes formal laws to regulate and enforce the EU directive. The UK has a grace period of one year, so there’s no need to panic just yet, but now is definitely the right time to start reviewing and adjusting your marketing practices.

I’ll be monitoring developments as they happen and will report back, so do keep checking this blog for further information.
