Data Providers: Everything You Need To Know

How Do You Choose a Data Provider?

When choosing a data provider we recommend asking as many questions as possible.

7 Questions you must ask when purchasing a database.

  1. Where do the details originate from?
  2. Are they opted in contacts or supplied under a legitimate interest licence?
  3. In the case of B2B email addresses are they personal named contact details?
  4. Is the data supplied under industry description or SIC codes?
  5. What guarantees are given on the quality of the data? For example, bounced emails?
  6. What licence period is the data given?
  7. What additional selections can be given for maximum benefit?

Also, ensure the provider is registered with the ICO.

Remember to note whether the data provider is transparent about the nature of its data .

What is the difference between a Data Owner and a Data Broker?

A Data broker has a hand in gathering types of information not publicly available such as contact details, health records or financial details. With the intention of giving their clients a wider choice. Therefore making them more valuable than someone who aggregates publicly available data.

A Data Owner licences their own information which is compiled from Market Research and unique sources of material. They are ultimately responsible for the quality and security of this information.
