For those of you that missed it, our CASL Compliance Workshop for Ad Agencies event June 26th, 2014 was a great success. Along with the panel of knowledgeable and expert guest speakers, the questions and comments of those live at the event and attending via webinar, brought much clarity and understanding to the new CASL legislation.

Our guest speakers included:

DEREK LACKEY - Managing Director: -30-.

His focus since 2006 has been internet marketing - finding ways to effectively fuse traditional advertising with social media.

CHRISTOPHER OATES - Lawyer: Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP

Chris Oates is an associate in Gowlings’ Toronto office, practising in the area of privacy, advertising, marketing and regulatory law.

MATT VERNHOUT - CPO & Manager, Deliverability: Inbox Marketer

Matthew is Inbox Marketer's Chief Privacy Officer and Manager of Deliverability.

Questions arose from “Would an IP address and signup date be enough to prove consent?” to “Are there a number of offenses noted before a fine or warning will be given etc.?”, with each question informatively answered by our panel.
