What is Consent Management?

Since Congress adopted the CAN-SPAM Act in 2003, organizations have put in place systems to manage opt-in and opt-out consent for email marketing. These software solutions manage the mailing list and give customers the ability to subscribe and unsubscribe to the marketing materials. Individuals may subscribe through one of several methods, including an opt-in form on their website, or by clicking a check box to get added when they provided their email in a checkout form. Once on the list, people may unsubscribe by a link at the bottom of the email messages. These systems are all a simple type of consent management.

In Europe, consent solutions were developed for websites because of the ePrivacy Directive. In order to comply with this regulation, companies display cookie banners to provide notice to consumers about the use of this technology and then usually offer either an opt-in or opt-out consent option.

Privacy laws are now driving more sophisticated solutions for tracking consent. Companies are interacting with consumers in more ways than ever. They are still sending them emails, but now they are texting them, calling them through automated programming, pushing messages to them through the app downloaded on their smartphone, and more. They are also collecting more data than ever. It is no longer just an email address that they are collecting and using. It may be location data from their cell phone, tv watching data, or their heart beat through a fitness tracker. These are just a few different examples, as each organization faces its own challenges in data collection and privacy.

The need for consent software for this data collection and usage is growing with the increased prioritization of privacy among regulators, the media and consumers. Cambridge Analytica was a strong wake up call for the world.

Do you have your data privacy management software in place?

May 2018 marked the beginning of a vastly different world for consent management software. Before GDPR, obtaining consent for most businesses involved having consumers provide their email address for a monthly newsletter or enter their cell phone number to opt-in to text messages. However, with the leading tech businesses increasing the information that they are collecting from consumers, and regulators requiring more transparency with consumers and justification of privacy practices, businesses will need to do much more. The largest tech businesses are already moving to privacy centers with a GDPR consent management software solution that enables them to capture dozens or hundreds of preferences from all of their consumers. It will not be long before businesses in every industry start rolling out a new system to manage consent for customers.

The Congressional questioning of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made clear that every business which is collecting and sharing data needs to do more to be transparent with consumers. With more transparency comes the need for customers to have the ability to do something with that information.

Transparency is typically paired with a powerful consent management platform to provide customers the ability to act based on the information that is being shared with them by the company. Together, transparency and control are used to increase customer trust with the business.

A significant amount of time in the Facebook hearings was spent on the question of customer control. Does Facebook own the data? Do customers have the ability to stop the type of sharing that happened in Cambridge Analytica? This issue ties back directly to the need for a great consent management tool in the age of data privacy.

Consent in the California Consumer Privacy Act

Consent management is going to take a large leap forward for many businesses in the United States before the CCPA reaches its effective date in 2020. Companies are being asked to not only manage it for their marketing. They will need to track customer preference for their data sharing as well through opt-out consent for adults and an opt-in system for children. Businesses will also need to have an integrated system to stop automated sharing with third-party partners via their API.

The CCPA, which was passed by the California legislature in June 2018 and goes into effect in January 2020 (with enforcement expected to begin in July 2020), requires covered businesses to offer website visitors the option to tell the company not to sell their personal information via a website form linked at the bottom of their website and their privacy policy, or a toll free number.

However, This is more than a compliance issue – It is becoming a critical business issue!

The easiest way to increase revenue is usually to sell more to your existing customers or decrease the number of customers that stop paying for your services. They have already proven that they are willing to buy from you. By keeping them buying and decreasing customer churn, your business will make more money.

The problem is that so many businesses are marketing to people these days that email inboxes are overflowing and no one has time to click on and read every email. People love to get text messages that are on point with their desires but no one wants to get a text message for something that they don’t want or need. After a few off message emails or texts, people may decide they are spam and unsubscribe rather than continue to give you the opportunity to market to them.

These lost customers are people that might have been a source of revenue in the future. To a certain extent, they are thus wasted marketing dollars as the company didn’t extract the full lifetime value out of that customer. It is also a loss for the person who had a problem in their life that the company didn’t fill.

Companies spend millions of dollars on marketing (more for large businesses, less for small businesses) to attract leads and customers. This money can’t be thrown away by annoying marketing materials after they have become a customer. You also don’t want them to actively campaign against your company, as has been seen with the #deleteFacebook movement.

Privacy and Consent are Crucial to Building Customer Trust

Recent surveys have demonstrated that more people are concerned about privacy and buyers are looking at data privacy practices before making purchasing decisions. For example, a Cisco study published in 2019 found tangible business benefits from investments in privacy practices. Companies which have not made investments in privacy are facing longer sales cycles by several weeks.

Another study published in 2018 in the Harvard Business Review found that organizations with high transparency and customer consent mechanisms suffered less business loss and stock market valuation drop following a data breach. The conclusion was that customers want control over their data and giving them transparency and consent helps mitigate the feeling of helplessness that can develop from a breach.

Update: France Targets Consent for First Major GDPR Fine

After an early action against a small adtech publisher for insufficient consent that concluded without a fine, France’s CNIL issued a 50 million euro fine against Google for failing to be transparent and not capturing informed consent properly under GDPR. Also, at the end of 2018, CNIL published guidance that data sharing with third-parties for marketing needed to meet five requirements, one of which was consent.

If France continues strong enforcement of the GDPR consent requirements, businesses that have not adopted a strong consent management solution will definitely need to be rethink their approach.

This is the future of marketing technology!

Clarip offers the Software-as-a-Service tool that your marketing and compliance departments need to ensure appropriate data privacy management. In the Wild West before GDPR and the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal, data collection and lead captures could be done with any online form builder. But the world is changing.

Data privacy management and compliance is going to follow the path of cybersecurity and become a key component of every technology business, just like the Data Revolution brought big data and data-driven decision making to many businesses. Regulators, the media and consumers are demanding additional privacy protections or the data sharing will be stopped. Businesses that don’t add the right mix of transparency and privacy will have trouble succeeding with their marketing efforts.

Consumers are demanding more from businesses. Just like the public expectations set by CSI drove police forensics labs to do better in order to get criminal convictions, the public understands that technology can make marketing much better than it has been in the past. They are no longer willing to accept, for example, that pet stores send them information about dog food when they only have cats. If they aren’t getting the marketing materials that they want in the manner that they desire, they are going to unsubscribe.

Because there is a lot of competition for the attention of consumers in the information age, and it is easier to keep an existing customer than it is to find a new one, it is critical that businesses engaged in marketing minimize customer churn. One way to do that is to respect customer preferences with your marketing communications.
