Information Commissioner investigate Telegraph over ‘vote Tory’ email

The Guardian reports problems for the Daily Telegraph over its email promotion of the Conservative Party:

The Information Commissioner’s Office is investigating a “small number of complaints” about the Telegraph’s email urging people to vote Conservative

The email, signed by editor Chris Evans and including links to the newspaper’s election-day leader article, other political coverage and an offer for a free 45-day digital subscription, was sent to the newspaper’s database of emails on the eve of the election.

Some recipients took to Twitter to complain that they either did not know how the Telegraph had got their email address or saying they had only signed up for specific emails such as its technology or finance newsletters.
