Answers to email marketers’ niggling questions about GDPR

Contributor Kyle Henderick consults with his colleague to dispel likely areas of confusion about the data regulation.

If you’ve paid attention to the news in recent months, you know that the EU’s new consumer data privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), goes into effect at the end of this week (May 25, 2018).

The GDPR is a move in the right direction. Consumers are warier than ever before about how businesses collect and use their data, especially in the wake of massive data breaches from companies like Equifax.

Businesses that collect and use consumer data should be held to high standards.
