EP 334: Marketers, Are You Breaking The Law? – Interview with Niklas Stephenson
Everyone is concerned about privacy and data that is used now more than ever before. Tighter laws are being put in place around the world. If your company’s digital marketing efforts are global, your consent forms have to align with legal requirements that vary by country, and even by states and localities within those countries. It’s a major paint point, which is why you must join us for this week’s show with featured special guest Niklas Stephenson, Founder, and CEO of Legal Monster because he’s developed a tool to automatically configure your consent to be legal in each market.
A fun fact about Niklas… Legal Monster is not the first or even the second company Niklas has founded. It is his FOURTH company! Because we believe you don’t want to break the law, you will not want to miss this week’s EDGE of the Web episode 334.
