Speaking of wanting to receive the newsletter, as it's via MailChimp, it's easy to opt-out if you don't wish to continue receiving the newsletter. There is always the option to click on unsubscribe from this list at the bottom of your newsletter, or you can email us directly at theIWSG at gmail dot com.
Now that we've got that out of the way, here are some articles I found helpful in navigating this GDPR puzzle as it concerns newsletters:
Yes, the GDPR Will Affect Your US-Based Business (Forbes)
How to Make Your Website GDPR Complaint (Hallam)
New MailChimp Tools to Help With the GDPR (MailChimp)
And more specifically from MailChimp (this one is only for those with a MailChimp newsletter): Collect Consent With GDPR Forms
GDPR goes into effect May 25, so you'll have to have your newsletters and websites GDPR-ready before that date, if you haven't already done it.
Are you ready for the GDPR to go into effect? Have you updated your newsletter and contacted EU members to re-opt-in?

This was interesting to read and most thought provoking which I will think about.
Sure a lot to it indeed. Good to cover one's bases.
That will help out a lot of people!
Thanks for the info! I'll share!
I do need to read up on it and be ready for Friday.
Thanks for the info!! :)
Yikes! I didn't think this affected me. Thanks for the info!
Working on it. I keep thinking I got everything cover and then find another aspect and have to redo all again to comply.
I got the email today, but I was one of the first ones (as the first newsletter admin) to use the form. Hmm...oh well. I updated to continue receiving it. :)
Yvonne, hope it's helpful.
Pat, definitely better safe than sorry!
Alex, I hope so!
Heather, you're welcome!
Diane, I have to do my own newsletter and website now.
Jemi, no problem!
Fundy, it's so confusing on what effects who.
Juneta, I feel that completely!
Chrys, all the original admins were imported via the list, so I had everyone re-confirm.
Thanks for the info.... I didn't receive anything for IWSG yet, so hopefully I'm set for receiving the June newsletter.
Thanks for all the help. I think blogger posts the notice to Europe readers automatically, but I'll need this if I ever do a newsletter.
Thanks for the info!
I have been reading about GDPR until I've gone cross eyed. I still question whether I need to make any modifications to my non-monetized, non-newsletter, non-advertising blog. Subscribers get notification when I publish a new blog post, but that's it. Hmmm.
This is really good info, Shannon! I'd been wondering about GDPR but was too lazy to do my own research—and now you've done it for me :) Even though I'm not based in the US, the info and the links are still super useful for me. Thank you so much!

Michael, I checked, and you're good to go.
Natalie, that's good to know about Blogger. They haven't put out anything helpful about all this.
Michelle, no problem!
Priscilla, it might be a good idea to put together a privacy statement.
Guilie, glad to help!
