    Episode Quotables 

    “Should I be tracking all of this stuff? Am I using this data for any purpose? Is it really benefiting the customer? Is there a lawyer out there with a quiver of arrows pointing at my company because I have all this data?”
    “We’ve been looking at the last couple of years ramping up our direct email marketing. However I have a huge list of customers that we’ve had opt in. Collected from years and years ago through transitions, sales, smokestaking, any possible way to generate a lead. We’ve got email addresses, phone numbers, all that, that we’ve never asked them “ is it ok that I communicate with you via email?” The hurdle that I have now is that I want to start some direct marketing, but how do I do that? What laws or privacy regulations may i be violating if i just start sending them communications.”
