Actually it’s a PECR / GDPR question. I’m interested in people’s opinions regarding recruitment emails. My initial take is that emails with people who are interested in your company (i.e. met you at a fair or gave you their cards) can be sent emails provided you capture consent under the rules of PECR (i.e. that these emails are marketing).
Once someone applies for a position, you capture their details and communicate with them under your performance of a contract lawful basis. My question is; could we extend our legitimate interest to cover those initial emails rather than having to rely on consent?
