Consumers Reward Companies with Strong Data Protection: RSA Survey
Do consumers want marketers to have their data? One hint is that 41% in a RSA survey said they’ve given false information when filling out online forms. The most common reason was to avoid unsolicited communications. They also take direct action: 54% said they avoid buying from companies known to mishandle consumer data and 50% are more likely to shop with companies that take data protection seriously. Just 11% said they never give any thought to companies’ reputations for data protection.
