GDPR and newsletters.

What does GDPR say about email marketing? In short this:

  1. Consent: Individuals must provide express consent to receive email marketing.
  2. Transparency: Marketers must clearly communicate what data is collected and how it will be used.
  3. Right to withdraw consent: Individuals have the right to withdraw their consent at any time, usually via an unsubscribe link. This is included in all emails sent via Minutemailer.
  4. Security: Only collect necessary data and ensure it is protected from unauthorized access.
  5. Liability: You need to prove compliance yourself, including how and when consent was obtained.

  2. Personal data: If the email address contains a person's name or is directly identifiable (e.g., it is considered personal data and GDPR rules on consent, transparency and data protection apply.

  3. Legitimate interest: Companies can often justify the processing of personal data for business-to-business (B2B) communications based on "legitimate interest".

In conclusion, although GDPR is less strict when it comes to purely corporate communications, you need to be careful about personal data and what you send to whom.
