My Mailing List is GDPR Compliant – How About You?
The European Union’s new privacy rules, the GDPR, takes effect next Saturday.
There’s obviously more to GDPR than that, and I will go into it in detail in the newsletter I am sending on Monday. This post is less about the new rules than about our experiences with compliance.
I’d like to hear about the problems you encountered. For example, how many email addresses are you going to have to remove from your mailing list?
After a careful check, I found that I have exactly 24 emails (out of thousands of subscribers) where I hadn’t made it clear that people were signing up for a mailing list. Those two dozen emails were given to me in exchange for a free ebook, which means I have to get their permission before sending them another email.
Have you encountered problems complying with the new rules?
