GDPR Confirmation Email Example Titles and Content

Having been sent a LOT of these emails in the past week I have collected a selection to give inspiration for you.

Note: I’m not a lawyer and this is not intended as legal advice.

If you need an Overview of the GDPR you can read this article.

I share the 6 Steps I Followed to prepare for GDPR which may be helpful for you.

I’ve also got some suggestions on how to Embrace your more powerfully connected community after the 25th May 2018.

Onto the Examples


Time is running out, Barbara. Act now!

Your Personal Data and why [Company Name] needs to make sure it’s right – ACTION REQUIRED

Goodbye from [Company Name]?

Let’s Stay in Touch!

Is this Goodbye ? 🙁

Important! Want to Stay in Touch?

Email Wording

Time is running out to opt in, Barbara (Giant countdown clock was added)
Update your contact options before 25 May
The clock is ticking, Barbara. If we don’t hear from you by 25 May, we can’t keep you updated about the things that matter to you.
We don’t want to say goodbye, so we’ve made it easy to stay in touch. Just click below to opt in to receiving emails with one click.
Whether you opt in or out, we’ll always stay in touch about your account. And we’ll continue to keep your data safe.


Hi there,
At [Company Name], we empower your team by delivering you up-to-date, actionable news on our features and resources. With GDPR fast approaching, please opt-in below to continue to receive communications such as:

    Industry reports and news
    First access to upcoming events
    Product how-to's and updates

If you do not opt-in, you will no longer receive these types of communications starting May 25th. Please opt-in now to stay in touch with [Company Name]!


All the best,

Goodbye from [Company Name]?
If you want to hear from us, let us know!

We need your permission to continue to send you [Company Name] updates. This is because there is a new law coming into force on 25 May which asks organisations to be sure they use people's data in the best way.

We will still be able to contact you with notifications or about using [Company Name] but we need to know if you'd like to receive our monthly updates. If we don't hear from you, we will remove you from our mailing list.


Hopefully this will be of use to you when faced with a blank page while you create your confirmation/permission request emails.

Speak soon,
