  • Jan.26.2018: Lord Rennard under investigation for breaching data protection. Lord Rennard, a Lib Dem life peer, sent out a mass-email from his personal account promoting his new book "My Campaigning Life: Memoirs Volume 1: Winning Here", to all Lib Dem staff on Thursday evening. He has been rebuked by some party members after a large number received the email to their personal email accounts, including a number of people who no longer work for the party. It is a breach of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR) which made it illegal to "transmit unsolicited communications for the purposes of direct marketing by means of electronic mail unless the recipient of the electronic mail has previously notified the sender that he consents for the time being to such communications being sent by, or at the instigation of, the sender".
