Fined for flouting customers’ marketing wishes

Morrisons has been fined for breaking the law on how people’s personal information should be treated when sending marketing emails.

An investigation by the Information Commissioner’s Office found the supermarket chain deliberately sent 130,671 emails to people who had previously opted out of receiving marketing related to its Morrisons More card.

As a result, the company, which has its headquarters in Bradford, has been fined £10,500 for breaking privacy and electronic communication regulations.
