How to make my lists GDPR compliant?

Existing Moosend user

If you are an existing Moosend user and want to make your lists GDPR compliant, we advise you to make the following changes.

Please keep in mind than in case you have already had in place a Double opt-in procedure and your subscribers have given you their consent, there is nothing more to do.

 

1. Click on the Mailing lists button, located on the left side of your Moosend Account.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_1.png

 

 

2. Click on the name of the mailing list that you want to edit.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_2.png

 

 

3. Choose the Settings option, on the menu that appears.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_3.png

 

 

4. From the options you see in the Opt-in Settings section, select: Activate Double Opt-in for this list but continue sending to all subscribers.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_4.png

When selecting this option and by using the Members button, you will see in your mailing list all the subscribers, whether they are Double opt-in verified or not. An extra column will appear named Double opt-in with the following categories: Verified, Unverified, Verified by Admin.

At first, all your subscribers will have the status: Unverified. As you move along, all the new subscribers that have subscribed with Double opt-in will have the status: Verified.

 

 

5. Next step is to setup the verification email that your subscribers will receive. Choose the sender from the dropdown menu and think of a catchy subject line, so that your new subscribers will give you their consent by clicking the verification link included in the email.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_5.png

 

 

6. Check the confirmation message that Moosend has created for you and that will be sent to your new subscribers. We wrote the content for you, but you can always edit the HTML message in our editor. Just make sure that you include the #VerificationLink# tag, otherwise it will automatically be placed at the bottom of the message.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_6.png

Then click on the Save button.

7. Set the Consent confirmation landing page, by specifying the URL of your confirmation page and tap on the Save button.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_7.png

 

 

8. No matter how you choose to add a new subscriber to your mailing list, Moosend will send the verification email. All the new subscribers that click on the verification link and give you the consent will have the status Verified.how_to_make_my_list_GDPR_compliant_new_14.png

 

 

9. All the current subscribers existing in a mailing list in your Moosend Account can be segmented through our segmentation feature and you can start sending them campaigns asking them to re-subscribe through the Double Opt-in process.
