Staying Compliant and Effective: A Guide to Email Regulations
Updated over a week ago

Navigating the world of email marketing can often feel like walking through a maze of regulations and best practices. But don't worry, we're here to guide you through it, especially when it comes to the CAN-SPAM Act, GDPR, and CCPA. And yes, we've got some helpful documentation for you to share with your team too!

Embracing Global Standards: GDPR and More

Good news for global teams: has stepped up its game! We've introduced a geofencing feature to ensure our services only activate for users in the United States. This means we're all about respecting international data privacy standards, including the GDPR. If a user's location can't be confirmed as the U.S., our system takes a step back, making sure we keep data privacy at the forefront.

Demystifying the US CAN-SPAM Act of 2003

You might have heard that email marketing in the U.S. requires recipients to opt-in, but that's not the case. The CAN-SPAM Act focuses on giving recipients the option to opt-out. It's all about transparency: make sure your emails are clearly marked as ads, provide your physical address, and ensure a straightforward way for recipients to say "no thanks" to future emails.

The Real Deal About Email Marketing Practices

The email marketing world often looks to Spamhaus – a key player in the world of email spam regulation – for what constitutes SPAM. While their definition is stricter than the law, adhering to it helps keep your emails out of the spam folder. At, we align with these best practices by ensuring all our contacts have given permission, backed by verifiable consent. This means higher open rates and fewer spam complaints for you!

Legal and Above Board: How Works

Here's the scoop: is built on trust and consent. Through our partner network, we ensure that every contact on your list has opted in, which keeps your marketing efforts both legal and effective. We supply all the necessary information, such as the when and where of the opt-in, at your request, to ensure your confidence in your actions.

Navigating California's CCPA

For those operating in or targeting California, the CCPA might be on your radar. It's all about knowing if the CCPA applies to your business and, if it does, making sure your privacy policy is up to scratch. This includes detailing consumers' rights, the types of personal information you collect, and more. Don't worry, though; if you're below certain thresholds (like revenue or the amount of personal data you handle), you might not need to make any changes.

Email marketing doesn't have to be a headache. With, you're set up for success, keeping your campaigns compliant, effective, and respectful of your audience's privacy. Ready to boost your email marketing game while staying on the right side of regulations? We're here to help!
