The ICO has fined Vanquis Bank £75,000 for sending 870,000 texts and 620,000 emails promoting its credit cards to recipients who had not consented to receive them. It had used marketing lists from other organisations and relied on indirect consent rather than checking the right levels of consent had been obtained. ICO found the consent included non-specific general wording such as “trusted parties” and “carefully selected third parties” and said this did not amount to a positive indication of consent.
