GDPR & telemarketing
We use data to carry out direct B2B marketing campaigns. The lawful basis we use for this processing is “Legitimate Interest” in accordance with recital 47 of the GDPR.
The ICO recommend that companies using this basis conduct a “Legitimate Interests Assessment” (LIA) and we have done this. SmartLead Direct Limited complies in full with the TPS and CTPS to prevent unwanted sales and marketing calls.
Personally identifiable data is never shared with any third party other than the client we are working on behalf of.
We never resell or share this data to any other party other than in the circumstances below:
- Where we are legally required by law to disclose your personal information
- To further fraud protection and reduce the risk of fraud
- In the event that we sell any or all of our business to the buyer
All data is securely stored and processed within the EU.
The data we process is obtained from several sources. These include yourself, our clients, GDPR compliant data providers and online resources in the public domain.

We rectify and update information based on what we’re told by the people we communicate with about themselves and their businesses.
