new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Hi there

 

We are keen to update current comms to reflect the changes required in the above regulation (we operate in Spain).

Would it be possible for the default opt in to e-mail option not to be checked when we create an event?

At the moment when we create an event and allow opt in to mailings this option is already checked on our registration form for the event.  We need to allow for users to check this opt - in individually.  

 

Many thanks

Hello @SpainB,

 

Thank you for posting in the Community! It is an optional feature to allow registrants to opt-in to a mailing list when completing a registration form. You can deselect the option in the Event Basics that states: "Allow registrants to join my contact list."

 

Please see following screenshots to help you find the option: event basics.png

 Scroll towards the bottom of the page and find Optional features:optional features.png

 

I hope that helps! If you have any other question and concern, please let us know!
