Experian launches Absolute Contacts

first_imgExperian launches Absolute Contacts Tagged with: Individual giving Howard Lake | 25 October 2005 | News Latest data integrity solution from Experian identifies only genuine address changesExperian, the global information solutions company, has launched Absolute Contacts. As the latest addition to Experian’s market-leading data integrity portfolio, Absolute Contacts enables charities to stay in touch with UK donors once they have changed address.Over six million (12 per cent) of the UK’s population move house each year and almost a third of consumers fail to notify companies they deal with of their change of address. Against this backdrop, Absolute Contacts from Experian provides accurate and up to date change of address information to enable charities to maintain, or regain, contact with donors after a house move.Sophie Sail, Head of Product Management for Experian’s Marketing Services division, states:“Absolute Contacts gives charities the ability to maintain contact with individuals by identifying genuine changes of address to save the costs associated with attracting new donors.”To accurately identify changes of address, Absolute Contacts utilises Experian’s wealth of name and address data and proprietary business processes.Individuals are confirmed as having left an address against Absolute Movers from Experian, the UK’s premier source for identifying home movers. Residency at the new address is verified against the current edited electoral roll and other sources of compliant, Experian-proprietary information to ensure that only individuals that can be currently confirmed at an address are included in Absolute Contacts.Sophie Sail adds:“Not all individuals in a household move house together. For example, children leave home, relationships break up and not all home moves are permanent. Dealing with this complexity, Absolute Contacts from Experian reduces waste and the threat of negative PR associated with poorly targeted communications, protects against the risk of identity fraud, and ensures regulatory compliance throughout the course of the donor lifecycle.”Absolute Contacts is available from Experian’s Marketing Services bureau or via Experian Intact (www.experianintact.com), Europe’s most widely used online data cleansing service.This press release can be found on http://press.experian.com.

Home minister downplays concerns about COVID-19 cluster emerging during election preparations

first_imgHome Minister Tito Karnavian has denied that any COVID-19 transmission clusters have emerged from the ongoing preparations for December’s simultaneous regional elections, adding that organizers are enforcing additional protocols to ensure the polls will be safe.Tito said that organizers had conducted individual verification for candidates between June 12 and June 24, which he said was one of the preparation stages predicted to be most prone to COVID-19 transmission. However, he claimed that there had been no reports of transmission from the verification process. Additionally, no clusters were reported when the ministry performed door-to-door checks to update data on the estimated 105 million voters between July 15 and Aug. 13. “I have not heard of any transmission clusters from this activity,” Tito said in a press conference after Tuesday’s Cabinet meeting.Amid reports of candidates violating health regulations while registering for the elections, Tito said that the lack of time to communicate the health protocols effectively could have lead to violations, or that some parties may have intentionally violated the regulations as a “show of force”.Read also: Voter turnout in upcoming elections may drop nearly 50 percent due to COVID-19: LSI To ensure safe elections, KPU chief Arief Budiman said during the conference that organizers would limit the number of attendees allowed at campaign meetings and face-to-face town hall debates to 100 and 50, respectively, while others would be required to participate virtuallyThe KPU will also limit the maximum number of voters at polling sites to 500, and will arrange voting schedules to prevent crowds, in addition to providing masks, face shields and gloves for organizers and voters.“We will also ask organizers to take a COVID-19 rapid test to ensure that they are not infected,” Arief said.Furthermore, Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) head Abhan said that additional legal tools were needed to enforce heavier sanctions against health protocol violators, such as using laws on health quarantines and infectious disease outbreaks.On Dec. 9, 270 regions will hold simultaneous elections, including nine provinces, 224 regencies and 37 municipalities. Some, however, have raised concerns that holding the elections during the coronavirus pandemic could increase transmissions.Topics :last_img read more

Dharry turns down ESPN fight against WBO number one contender due to COVID-19

first_imgBy Faizool DeoACE Guyanese boxer Elton Dharry was forced to refuse an ESPN fight due to a lack of training stemming from COVID-19 lockdown protocols in place in New York.The Brooklyn resident, who has kept Guyana in the top 15 of the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Flyweight division since 2014 and in the top 10 for two consecutive years (moving as high as fifth), was recently offered a fight against number one contender in the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) bantamweight division, Joshua Greer Jr.Dharry, who noted that the June 13 battle would have been a “huge fight” for him, said that the lockdown has hampered his gym time and he is unprepared.“I was very, very tempted to take the fight, but knowing I will not be fully prepared due to the current situation I had to let it go.”The Top Rank fighter Greer Jr, who has 22 wins, one loss and a draw in his professional career, would have been Dharry’s second major fight in six months, given that the Leguan-born went up against Australian Andrew Maloney in November for the WBA Super Flyweight World title.Though he lost the very close bout (via a debatable stoppage by the referee one second into the ninth round), the Guyanese proved his dominance in the ring. Not only did he drop his opponent (was not acknowledged by the referee), but he burst Maloney’s eardrum in the fifth round.Since lockdown started on March 22 in New York, Dharry has had to resort to regular training at home. He even travelled to Pocono Mountains (Poconos) in Pennsylvania to get sparring sessions, but no boxer was available.The US-based Guyanese, who has fought professionally for the last 16 years said that he is looking forward to getting back into the ring, but it must be after he is prepared.“I’m hoping to fight later this year. I’ll be ready as soon as I can get back in a gym and start sparring.”last_img read more
