SUBSCRIBER MANAGEMENT

PlastikCity ensures all marketing communication complies with data protection law, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We operate under one of two legal grounds for managing marketing communications subscribers:
 
  • Individual email addresses: Opt-in Sign Up Form: www.plastikcity.co.uk/sign-up.
  • Corporate email addresses: Opt-in Sign up form or Legitimate Interest. PlastikCity only distributes direct marketing materials to subjects if we are satisfied legitimate interest exists. Before new subjects are included in our subscriber list we establish legitimate interest and provide information recommending inclusion in our direct mailing campaigns. All subjects have a clearly defined option to decline inclusion or unsubscribe on receipt.
 
All direct mailings have a clearly visible option to unsubscribe from future services. Unsubscribe requests are strictly adhered to and are permanently removed from the relevant mailing lists. Our system doesn’t allow email addresses to be re-added following an unsubscribe instruction. PlastikCity operate an email preference system where subscribers select the category of emails they receive.
