Receipt improvements

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force. GDPR aims to better protect the privacy and personal information of European residents and imposes certain practices on companies collecting and processing personal information, including but not limited to a first or last name, email address, telephone number or date of birth.

In order to ensure compliance and better protect you, we’ve reviewed the different features we offer. As a result, we have decided to abandon our MailChimp integration for users located in the European Economic Zone (EEA), including the United Kingdom and Switzerland. We are committed to reviewing the feasibility of bringing this integration into compliance and hope that this functionality will be restored in the coming months.

In the meantime, you can continue to use MailChimp, but your customers will no longer be able to accept or manage their newsletter preferences through Calendarspots.com. MailChimp has launched a series of initiatives to help you become GDPR compliant, and we invite you to review their communications on this topic.

In addition, one of the requirements of the GDPR is that users have the right to access, update and delete their personal information. If you have customers in the EEE, make sure that the customer accounts are active as well as the ability for users to delete their user profile online (see image below).

We also encourage you to review our updated Business User Terms of Service as well as our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

We thank you for your attention and invite you to contact us if you have any questions.
