Unsolicited emails can still be sent to corporate subscribers if they are relevant to their work. A 'marketing' email is not defined by the law either; but must include any email promoting your goods and services.

You can always protect yourself, just follow the next tips:

- Ensure Your Prospecting Is Targeted and Appropriate
- Explain Legitimate Interest In Your Email Copy
- Make It Quick And Easy To Unsubscribe or Opt-Out
- Regularly Cleanse And Maintain Your Database
- Prepare An Informative Reply For GDPR Complaints And Questions

The GDPR protects individuals, NOT businesses.

The ePrivacy Regulation specifically leaves it up to the individual countries within the EU to decide whether ‘unsolicited commercial communications’ should be forbidden.
