GDPR is a complex law which all companies must comply with who wish to do business in the UK. Think carefully about what you do and what you may want to do in the future. We also encourage you to conduct a thorough investigation of your own. The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals is the Information Commissioner's Office.

Change your site to record explicit opt-in

If you send email marketing you must. If you host with Wix we can show you how. Sometimes people might want a soft opt out. Your form can do this and your email marketing system and data base can be structured to cope. Start collecting opt-ins now.

You don't need explicit consent to send a mailer, letter or gift. So long as you make it clear how to stop getting future mailings. Content must be relevant and of course you would want it to be anyway otherwise your are wasting your time and money.

Do create and use a easy opt out message.

If you use a reputable email package such as Wix Shoutout or Mail Chip this will be build in. Check it works properly though and if you don't use either of these platforms build a manual link into your email signature or template.
