Terms and Conditions Element

The Terms and Conditions Element allows you ask your visitors to accept the terms you have for signing up to your communications via your form.

This Element must be mapped to at least one Topic in a Consent list, and visitors are required to accept your terms to submit your form.

To create a form where visitors can select which Topics they would like to sign-up for, use a Consent Element instead!

Forms with a Terms and Conditions Element also need an Input Field Element and a Submit Button to work as expected.

About Collecting Consent

You can request consent for email or SMS communications with the Consent Element and the Terms and Conditions Element.

While the Terms and Conditions Element subscribes Profiles to designated Topics, the Consent Element subscribes Profiles to Topics of their choice.

Mapping Topics

Make sure that you don't choose the same Consent list and Topics as you chose for your Consent Element!

While the Consent Element is not essential to gather consent, the Terms & Conditions Element is crucial as it will determine whether you have a visitor's consent for email or SMS communications.

The Terms & Conditions Element allows you to gather consent for designated Topics, while the Consent Element allows visitors to choose which Topics they would like to subscribe to.

Don't forget the channel!

Pick either Email or SMS as a communication channel for gathering consent. Read more about Consent...


Double Opt-in

Double Opt-in allows you to confirm the subscription of those Profiles who opt-in to your communications by providing their Email consent.

For your confirmation email and page to match your branding guidelines, you must head over to Account Settings and adjust your Double Opt-in options under Sections.

Before you can enable Double Opt-in for your Form, you must complete these settings.

Tick Enable Double Opt-in to send an opt-in confirmation email to the Profiles that sign up via your Form. If you leave this option unticked, the consent for all Profiles who opt-in via this Form will be automatically confirmed.

If enabled:

Once a visitor has provided their email consent they will receive an email message where they are asked to confirm their subscription.

Until they've confirmed their subscription, their Profile will show their email channel consent as pending.

Profiles with a Pending Opt-in Email type of consent will not receive any of your sendings until they confirm their subscription. Read more about consent here.
