It is common for some of our customers, especially those from the EU, to ask us if LVI complies with the Data Privacy laws (GDPR). The answer: Yes.
LVI does not extract private information from individuals or market databases, but is simply a tool that automates the process of finding, contacting and following up with Directors, Managers and Purchasing Decision Makers on LinkedIn.
The information you receive in your Linkedin inbox is given voluntarily by each contact, in the same way that someone leaves you their email or phone number if you manually request it.
Note that LVI is indistinguishable from a manual contact, since the messages that the tool sends are the ones that you define when configuring the tool.
When the invitation or follow up message reaches your contact, they don’t know or have any way of knowing that you are using a tool, and that’s a big part of why LVI is so effective: it’s not a depersonalized robot, it’s simply automating something you were already doing manually to make it more efficient so that you can focus 100% on your respondents instead of having to do all the tedious work of prospecting manually.
As it is the people who voluntarily provide you with their data, you can rest assured that you are 100% compliant with all applicable regulations.
