The following factors are critical when considering a list source:
All files available, whether b2b or b2c, are collected and managed with slightly different approaches. Business data tends to be telephone updated throughout the year, further verified by e-mail research and feeds from Companies House. Consumer data is ascertained via postal research, telephone surveys or e-mail marketing. We can advise you which data source (and collection method) will most closely match your requirement. A recency banding is always placed on data purchases to ensure intelligence is reliable, such as “collected or verified in last 6 months”.
Some examples of these can be found within the business or consumer pages of our site. This is only a small selection of what is available; please contact us to discuss other field-types that can be manipulated.

This will ultimately depend on the exact nature of the offering and how the respective project is executed. However, standard (prudent) conversion rates are as follows:

Hard bounces happen when a mail server tells us that the email couldn’t be delivered for some reason. Most hard bounces are dealt with straight away, and the address won’t be included in any future campaign sends. A hard bounce would be if the recipient email address does not exist or the email server completely blocks the mail. Soft bounces occur for other reasons. Some examples could be the the recipient email box is full, the email was caught in a spam filter, or the server might have been down. Alway look at your bounce rates so you do not accidently become black listed.
GDPR was introduced to ensure that personal data is processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently.
Article or Chapter 6 of the GDPR states that any organisation processing personal data must have a valid legal basis for their personal data processing activity. The following 6 situations are when it would be lawful to use data in these ways.
(1) Consent: the individual has given clear consent for you to process their personal data for a specific purpose.
(2) Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract.
(3) Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for you to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations).
(4) Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.
(5) Public task: the processing is necessary for you to perform a task in the public interest or for your official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law.
(6) Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for your legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.
