The Gaskells change trading names very often, but there is in fact no such company in the UK as Experience Data and the Gaskells have gone to great pains to excise any identifying data from the site.
The spamvertised website is experiencedata.co.uk hosted by Ekmsystems.co.uk on 184.108.40.206. The Gaskells have been using EKM Systems (aka EKMPowershop) for a long time, and it seems that EKM Systems don't care about the spamminess of this particular customer. You might want to consider blocking the entire 220.127.116.11/24 range given this attitude.
The email is sent through a server at 18.104.22.168 which is a company called Krek Ltd in Russia. The fact that the Gaskells have to send their spam through Russia shows how low they have to go. The originating IP is 22.214.171.124 which appears to be a Skylogic Satellite broadband connection.
The pitch here is that you can buy a business mailing list for £399. The catch is that as they are advertising through spam, then the mailing list is probably of exceptionally low quality and using it may lead to problems. They have also been found to be selling data that they weren't authorised to sell and all-in-all you should give this lot a very wide berth indeed.
Two of the sending relays identifies themselves as being in the domain maxmarty.co.uk which is clearly registered to the Gaskells:
