Setting up Consent: The Complete Guide


Triggerbee Consent is a GDPR tool that makes it easy for you to capture consent from your subscribers. Consent also stores all contacts that has given consent under People, so that you can easily find or export a detailed list of contacts that have accepted to receive digital communication. Consent is an addon to Triggerbee, and this guide will show you how to set it up step-by-step:

Now you'll go through 5 steps that will help you set up your policy. The first step is to adjust the data retention information in your policy.

Date field: The date which your policy was written.
If you already have a policy written by your own lawyers, select the date it was published on your website. 

Pink slider: Slide to adjust how long your company saves and uses personal information after the date of collection.
This information lets your contacts or subscribers know how long they can expect to be stored in your system if they don't Opt-out from any communication. 


You will be asked to choose a template. If you already have a privacy policy from before, choose the Blank Template and paste in your previous policy. Otherwise, pick the version of your choice. Currently, there are 8 pre-written, standardized, policies available for use.
