Anybody some more information what the requirements are to use Sendy without getting trouble? I guess an agreement with Amazon is mandatory. But what if you offer your Sendy installation to your clients? Do they need an agreement with me as their "email service provider"?
Was thinking about it the other day
Haha, as time flies by, we are all getting feverish ...
I have just read up a little on this as well. The /r/GDPR subreddit on reddit.com is a great accumulator of tidbits.
While GDPR has a lot of organisational / procedural impact, the software needs to facilitate this. A great article, imho, is this one here : https://techblog.bozho.net/gdpr-practical-guide-developers/
Ben, any insights on this?
@And have pointed out a good article, thanks.
With regards to sending emails to existing subscribers after GDPR kicks in, it is probably a good idea to do a re-permission campaign. There is a separate discussion with this regard here → https://sendy.co/forum/discussion/11296/gdpr-re-permission-campaign#Item_5
In order for a mailing list signup form be GDPR compliant, the following condition needs to be met (feel free to add or correct):
Sendy will allow you to add legal text with links at the bottom of your mailing list in the next version. However you can always build your own signup form with Sendy’s ‘subscribe’ API to be compliant right now.
Lastly, the “checkbox” that you always read about having in order to be GDPR compliant pertains to “Unbundling”. ‘Consent' should not be a precondition of signing up for a service or purchasing of a product. For example if someone buys a product from your website, enter their name, email, address etc at the checkout, it does not mean you have the right to send marketing emails to the email address they have entered. You must have a checkbox at your checkout page to obtain their consent to send them marketing emails later.
The next version of Sendy will include some useful GDPR friendly features.
Awesome news, thanks Ben!
