Why this campaign?
Keep Me Posted EU promotes the citizen’s right to choose how they receive important information such as tax forms, election documents and bills and statements from service providers without any disadvantage. It is not an anti-digital campaign but a pro-choice campaign wanting to promote inclusion of vulnerable consumers at European level. The campaign is inspired by the UK campaign, Keep Me Posted UK and directed towards the European Institutions. The campaign gathers support of consumer groups and charities that are representing citizens that may be disadvantaged by a lack of choice or simply do not agree with it.
We call upon European organisations and Members of the European Parliament to adopt the Keep Me Posted Pledge to:
Offer all citizens the choice of receiving information through paper correspondence as a standard offer.
Refrain from penalising in any way, any citizen for preferring to receive information through paper correspondence
- No extra charge
- No change of frequency
- No difficulty to revert back to paper correspondence
Require prior consent from citizens before ceasing to send paper documents.
