The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a piece of legislation that is designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all individuals within the European Union.
For that reason, GDPR applies to any organization in the European Union that is processing personal data, as well as any organization that processes the personal data of EU data subjects, regardless of whether the organization has a presence in the European Union or whether the processing is conducted within the European Union.
If you collect, store, manage, or analyze personal data of any type, including email addresses, it is likely that the GDPR affects your organization.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation designed to increase protections around the processing of personal data of data subjects in the European Union.

There are various things you might need to do depending on your situation and jurisdiction. Below you'll find various tips that may be useful when using UpViral.
If you are in the European Union you'll likely want to sign a Data Processing Agreement.
Enabling double opt-in is a practice that may help you comply with the affirmative consent requirements of the GDPR. When double opt-in is enabled, contacts will need to confirm their email address before receiving further communications.
Under the GDPR, contacts have the right to request deletion of their data. Familiarising yourself with how to delete contact information may help you comply with such requests once the GDPR takes effect.
You'll find instructions how to edit & delete contacts here.
In case you want your audience to easily rectify and/or delete their information themselves, you can send them to our public "My Data" page.
The right to data portability and right of access enable contacts to request their personal data. Exporting contact data can help you comply with these request.
The GDPR requires you to be able to demonstrate proof of explicit, affirmative consent from data subjects.
One way of asking for consent, is using checkboxes.
You'll find instructions how to add checkboxes to your campaigns here.
