Suppression and Validation

Contacting customers or prospects who have moved away or died is both inappropriate and wasteful. To not remove goneaway customers damages your brand, wastes marketing resource, and causes distress to the people you want to upset least – those who buy your product or services.

Experian provides detailed and accurate suppression data to avoid the customer, legal, financial and brand implications of mailing deceased and goneaway contacts.
