Data Provider Network

The effective use of data and data analytics has become integral to the success of most modern organisations. Gaining the most value from the information you hold has become increasingly important, while sourcing good data from credible data providers has become harder.

As the commercial value of personal data has risen, so has consumer and business awareness of the importance of collecting and using data legally and appropriately.

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the 2018 Data Protection Act, which enshrined the GDPR’s requirements in UK law, has made consumers more conscious of their rights and reiterated the responsibilities of businesses to handle and use data correctly. Organisations who fail to abide by the rules are liable to receive considerable fines, restrictions on business operations and harmful reputational damage.

‘We’ve built a best-of-breed network of data providers, by using our inhouse data and compliance expertise to review all the major UK data providers.’

Third Party Data

These challenges are amplified when organisations use third party data – from partners, data providers or brokers – to support their customer acquisition efforts. The risks involved in identifying and using external data sources are considerable and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has made the due diligence of data suppliers a fundamental responsibility for business operators.

‘Having an effective and coherent affinity partnership strategy can play a huge part in helping your business achieve its objectives.’

Data Provider Network

Finding the right data provider for your business, who can meet your specific requirements, is difficult. It is not only a matter of sourcing the best quality data, but also making sure it is safe to use. With a large variety of providers available, it is tricky to know where to go.  If you fail to put in the necessary due diligence, then it could put your business at risk.

With this in mind, we have built a best-of-breed network of data providers. To achieve this, we have reviewed, using our inhouse data and compliance expertise, all the major UK data providers, carrying out extensive due diligence to produce a ‘red-amber-green’ risk assessment of their legal, financial and compliance status.

Data providers within our network:

  • Have been fully assessed and vetted for overall suitability
  • Had their financial, legal and compliance status checked
  • Can supply business and consumer data
