5.4.6 Doorstep materials

Unsolicited mail and hand-delivered promotional materials are allowable, although if these deliveries are being made using an electronic database, then the Data Protection Act still applies (See Section 5.3). Door-to-door leafleting, used by many community share offers targeting small target communities, is fully allowable under almost all circumstances, especially when it does not involve the electronic storage of personal data.
