How compliant is the data from i-4business and Lusha?

i4b logo
  • Data subjects are fully informed how their data will be processed & with whom specifically, we will share that data with.

  • ALL clients receive any opt-outs every week, ensuring clients are abiding by the data subjects' marketing preferences.
Lusha Logo
  • Opt-outs are NOT passed onto their clients. This can cause compliance issues.

  • Updates NOT provided when specific contact records change. This means data can quickly become outdated and inaccurate.

  • Very little information on the consent obtained to add contacts to their database. GDPR compliance information is very vague. As a client, it would therefore be your responsibility to ensure compliance before using their data.

  • Also collect personal email addresses (B2C) which without an opt-in (for every country) is not compliant.

  • UK data is NOT screened against the TPS/CTPS service leading to compliance problems.

"I have been using the i-4Business database at the last four organisations I have worked at. Why? Because they are one of very few agencies who provide the right business and IT influencers and decision makers across EMEA. I know I can trust their data, and there are not many providers of data for whom I can say that!”
