Good Morning, I'd be grateful for your thoughts:
Would you say a "blanket" email from a colleague to other colleagues
asking for sponsorship for a well known charity's sponsored event falls
under the "domestic purposes" exemption? I'm pre-supposing the email
constitutes marketing - promoting the charities aims.
Could the employer whose email network is used be deemed responsible in
some way for the promotion and therefore the promotion fall outside the
exemption? Perhaps this is more a vicarious liability issue than a DP
one. Does it make any difference if the promotion is contrary to the
company's published policy on colleague's email use? Could the promotion
be a section 55 offence by the employee - have they "obtained" email
addresses without the consent of the employer (even though the employer
makes the email addresses readily available in internal directories)?
