GDPR and your referral campaign
When the people referring or the people being invited join your referral campaign, you are gathering and processing their personal data, such as their name and email.
To make sure you are compliant with GDPR our software requires everyone joining the campaign to agree to the Terms and Conditions of your campaign.
It is up to you as the business to make sure you have the person's consent for any marketing activities you are going to use this data for. You can do so by including this in the Terms and Conditions of your campaign.
