What they say about us

The Legitimate Interests and Consent research that fastmap undertook was fundamental for our organisation to build an evidence-based compliance framework that we can be confident takes into account the reasonable expectations of our supporters and collects consent where required in a fully optimised way. I’m very happy to recommend fastmap”
