The ICO took action against DM Design Bedrooms Ltd under the UK's Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. The Isle of Man has similar legislation, the Unsolicited Communications Regulations 2005, and the Data Protection Supervisor is responsible for the enforcement of the Regulations. The Regulations impose similar obligations on the senders of electronic direct marketing and senders must ensure they comply with these requirements and with the Data Protection Act 2002.
