Keep Me Posted EU
Intergraf is an active member of the Keep Me Posted EU campaign. This initiative promotes European citizens’ right to choose how they receive important information such as tax forms, election documents and bills and statements from service providers without experiencing any disadvantages. KMP is not anti-digital; it is pro-choice. It also aims to promote the inclusion of vulnerable consumers in society, who for many different reasons are sometimes not be able to receive digital communications. There are a growing number of national Keep Me Posted campaigns across Europe, as well as a European campaign which targets the European Union Institutions (Keep Me Posted EU). The first KMP campaign was initiated in the UK, with all following campaigns inspired by this one.
At European level, KMPEU gathers the support of consumer groups and charities that represent citizens who may be disadvantaged by a lack of choice, or simply do not agree with it. The campaign is supported by over 25 European organisations, representing a wide variety of sectors and interests. In the European Parliament, the campaign has also received a lot of backing, with over 50 MEPs pledging their support. Political activity in the Parliament has included the submission by MEPs of a Parliamentary Question for written answer to the European Commission, as well as the inclusion of a reference to the KMPEU campaign in a Parliamentary Own Initiative Report (INI). Political activity towards the Commission includes monitoring dossiers relating to consumer rights, online/distance sales of goods, digital government and financial services.
