 We like to keep things like-hearted here at Oxygen but we need to get serious.
The Law is changing!

It not only effects our business it will affect your business too! It’s not a Law that is just for those big corporations either we’re afraid.

We’ll try and do our best to make this clear to understand, it certainly gave us a sore head working it all out.

GDPR – Whats the Fuss All About?

If you use email marketing, send direct mail or make sales calls this will affect you! The law is changing what you can and cant do.

It’s easy to think you don’t collect data but if you’re using any tracking tools like Google Analytics on your website you are. This can include anything from individuals IP addresses or a simple contact form.

People have a right to know what personal information you’re storing about them and what data you might have.

Privacy Policy
