How does GDPR affect email marketing?
Table of Contents
GDPR requires that you get an affirmative and provable consent to send EU citizens marketing emails. You can do this by obtaining a double opt-in from them.
What is a double opt-in?
A double opt-in is a confirmation of a subscriber’s wish to receive your emails.
To obtain the subscriber's confirmation, you must:
- Send an email to the subscribed email address
- In the subject of the email, explain that the subscriber must visit a link to permit you to send them marketing emails
If the subscriber visits the link, then they are 'double opted' in, which confirms that they have agreed to receive marketing emails. This ensures that you can legally send your marketing emails to the subscriber.
