Dronestart - The Lawful Use Of Drones in Sales & Marketing


So, you want to use drone footage for your next marketing campaign? What do you need to know to protect yourself, your organisation and your marketing investment?

Using everyday business scenarios, we take apart the legislation and provide practical examples and templates of how to comply and how to prove to the regulators that you have complied.

Common issues we address include;

  • What laws do I need to comply with?
  • Does a drone operator need to be trained, licenced?
  • What is the Air Navigation Order 2016 (as amended) and is it my job to be compliant?
  • Do drones capture personal data and who’s responsible for compliance with GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018?
  • Can I photograph the public using a drone?

The Dronestart™ ‘Drone Compliance’ course is built on practical experience and is designed to ensure marketers, agencies and those with Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCOs) comply with aviation, privacy and marketing laws.

Who is it for?: 

You may be the data protection officer (DPO), the go-to-person for GDPR, the Marketing Director or the Head of Agency; whatever the job title, you are the person your company looks to, to deliver the drone-based marketing program.
