ICO statement on fundraising report

We have issued the following statement in response to The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NVC0) fundraising review report.

"We welcome the fundraising review report and particularly the clear recommendations that fundraisers should comply with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations and put our direct marketing guidance into practice.

“We will be producing further guidance looking at the issues of informed consent in relation to fundraising practices and the timescale of valid consent. The guidance will also give a clear indication of our approach to regulatory action. Our investigations into the charity sector are continuing and we’d ask any member of the public who still has concerns to report them to us.”
