What is the GDPR? What does Infomail do to comply with the regulation?
The GDPR has changed the rules on privacy and the public’s attitude towards the handling of personal data. That’s why we’ve written a dedicated page for more information on the matter. Infomail allows you to request subscription to your lists with the double opt-in formula, so that the user who subscribes to your newsletter receives an email to which they must respond. Their consent is guaranteed by the fact that they intentionally, transparently, and consciously respond to the email, ensuring the highest possible quality for your communications.
What is Infomail’s policy on the processing of personal data?
What is meant by the term ‘spam’?
Spam is an unwanted email message, usually sent without a prior request. It can be sent by companies or individuals, with varying contents. Spam is a crime, as it goes against privacy laws. Infomail, like other industry operators, is actively committed to combating spam and enforces strict control policies to prevent malicious individuals’ use of its technology.

Where can the addresses to be used in an email marketing campaign come from?
Email addresses for email marketing campaigns can be collected directly from the company by requesting them from current and potential customers, usually on their own website through subscription forms or through specific direct marketing and social campaigns. In accordance with the GDPR, it is important to make sure to respect the recipient’s wishes, having recorded their explicit consent to be contacted through an email marketing service such as Infomail in your systems.
How can I acquire new addresses?
To acquire new addresses, it is essential to include a registration or subscription form for your newsletter on your website, explicitly stating the type of data processing that will be carried out on the collected data. Infomail automatically generates a configurable form for each created list. As soon as a user fills out the form, their data is added to the list associated with it.
Can I modify the registration form and customize it with other fields?
Certainly! It is possible to modify the registration form by adding new fields, choosing the data entry mode (free text, drop-down menu, single choice, multiple choice), and deciding whether or not to make them mandatory. Since the form is in HTML, it is also possible to insert your own logo and modify the background color, making it look just like your website’s style.
What happens if a user requests to be removed from a list?
Users who request to have their email address removed from a list and confirm their action are blocked by the system. Therefore, it will not be possible to send any further communications to those addresses. By contacting customer support, it is possible to re-enable those who decide to receive communications again.
What is a CSV file?
A CSV (“Comma Separated Value”) file is a text file in which the fields are separated by a punctuation mark, usually a comma (,) or a semicolon (;). Both Excel and Google Sheets allow you to create or import files of this format.

Can I add a new sender and a new email address for my shipment?

This allows you to send as Mario Rossi even if the account sender is Andrea Verdi. A verification code will be sent to the new address to enable its use. The choice of sender is made from the drop-down menu at the time of shipment.
