Seamless Data Quality Helps Enterprises Meet Standards of GDPR and Increasingly Stringent Privacy Laws Worldwide

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melissa, a leading provider of global contact data quality and identity verification solutions, today announced Privacy Flag, a seamless new feature in its comprehensive Global Email Verification suite designed to verify email addresses and improve overall email deliverability. Privacy Flag draws attention to customer emails that are more likely to require additional controls to remain compliant with regulations such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

A simple but powerful tool, Privacy Flag scans top level domains or countries that may be sensitive to increased privacy restrictions. Email addresses are flagged for caution, for example those with a top level domain of ‘.de.’ Enterprises benefit from these additional cautions as privacy legislation continues to advance worldwide, influenced heavily by the European Union’s leadership role. Rulings such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) emulate this role in the continental U.S., going into effect January 2020 with other U.S. states anticipated to follow.

Globally, additional countries are also following suit in making privacy a priority. India is gearing up for new data protection laws, with its Personal Data Protection Bill (PDPB) currently in draft mode, just as Singapore is promoting consumer rights in pending legislative changes to its Personal Data Protection Act (PPDA). In South America, Brazil has initiated its own General Data Privacy Law which closely resembles GDPR.

“These laws require a level of preparedness that many enterprises have yet to understand, let alone incorporate into business operations. And while various new laws may initially seem regional, they apply to any company with a worldwide customer base,” said Çağdaş Gandar, Managing Director Europe, Melissa. “The key takeaway here is that handling, storing, and using customer data requires more attention than ever before — and seamless data quality plays a critical role in success. In addition to overall operations such as keeping customer data standardized, verified, and deduplicated, tools such as Privacy Flag add value to the compliance toolkit, helping businesses recognize and focus on managing risk globally.”

UPM Plywood is planning to scale down plywood production in Finland2.6.2020 11:00:00 CESTPress release

(UPM Plywood, Lahti, 02.06.2020 at 12:00) – UPM Plywood is planning to permanently close its Jyväskylä plywood mill, which is producing spruce and birch plywood. The company starts a consultation process concerning the entire personnel working at the mill. UPM Jyväskylä plywood mill employs 167 people. The Profitability of Jyväskylä plywood mill has been weak for a long time, even during periods of high-demand. Despite investments as well as savings and improvement activities, the profitability has not improved to a sustainable level. Competition in the birch plywood market is increasing constantly. New birch plywood capacity has been built especially in Russia, where the production cost level is significantly more competitive than in Finland. If realized, the planned actions would strengthen UPM Plywood’s overall competitiveness and performance in the long run. “In Finland, a full run of the capacity has not been feasible due to the terms in the woodworking industry. In addition, repe

Does ESG investing really have an influence on companies?2.6.2020 10:29:21 CESTPress release

Press Release - Boston, London, Nice, Paris, Singapore, Tokyo, June 2, 2020 Does ESG investing really have an influence on companies? Research questions integrated and score-based strategy on the risk of mixed message sent to companies What motivates equity ESG investment strategies is the ability to influence the behaviour of companies through the portfolio decisions that they lead to. To this end, it is often argued that an investor who is dissatisfied with a company's ESG behaviour, and who wishes to remedy the situation, needs to stay on as its shareholder and engage with it. Indeed it is believed that if the investor divests from the company, its influence over the company will cease. Moreover, the act of divesting is often presented as a passive approach that has no bearing on the company's management, a capitulation rather than a form of action. In a new publication entitled "ESG Engagement and Divestment: Mutually Exclusive or Mutually Reinforcing?" Scientific Beta argues that
