Envoke's role is to facilitate the management of consent settings, not to enforce legislation.
We do this by setting defaults that apply to the majority of use cases and facilitate obtaining and updating documented express consent and managing rolling expiry dates for implied consent.
- CASL: applicable to Canadian contacts. Consent is required to send emails. Consent can be express (doesn't expire) or implied (expires).
- GDPR: applicable for EU contacts. Express consent required to send emails. (there is no implied consent).
- Opt-out system: used in the USA (among other countries).
No express consent required to send emails as long as an opt-out mechanism is provided.
