Email regulations vary by country, so your event may also be subject to additional regulations depending on the location of both your event and your attendees.
It’s your responsibility to determine whether any additional laws or regulations, including international laws, apply to you or the emails that you send through ClearEvent. Please note that, in addition to email spam laws, some countries may have additional data protection or security laws that could impact your email marketing.
