Please acknowledge that this video is not legal advice for your company to use in complying with EU data privacy laws like the GDPR. Instead, it provides background information to help you better understand the GDPR. This legal information is not the same as legal advice, where an attorney applies the law to your specific circumstances, so we insist that you consult an attorney if you’d like advice on your interpretation of this information or its accuracy. In a nutshell, you may not rely on this as legal advice or as a recommendation of any particular legal understanding.
As you might already know, the General Data Protection Regulation commonly referred to as GDPR is a new regulation that toughens obligations when dealing with the personal data of citizens from the European Union (EU).
It affects all organizations that control or process the data of EU citizens, so even if your company is based outside the EU, the GDPR applies to you.
This new legal framework has profound implications on how marketers manage their relationships with prospects and customers.
GDPR is an evolving initiative and is constantly updating, so please be sure to stay up to date on these regulations.
What about contacts already on my list that opted in before May 2018, should I worry?
The answer is since the contacts already opted-in on your list do not put your jeopardy of breaching GDPR. Existing contacts are not required to opt-in again, however, many Kajabi users are taking this opportunity to refine their list and shed some dead weight by having them opt-in again to their email system.
This is a great opportunity to send an Email Broadcast to your entire list with a double opt-in embedded for added consent security.
This is a great question. A GDPR privacy notice is a public statement of how your organization applies data protection principles to processing data. It should be a clear and concise document that is easily understood and easily accessible to your users.

How can I add a cookie disclaimer script to my homepage?
Cookie disclaimers as very common. However, this is not a native option available feature in Kajabi. For this reason, I recommend using https://cookieinfoscript.com/.
For detailed instructions on how to do this please see the resource below.
I hope this cleared up some common GDPR FAQs.
