Our background in the EU

Since its debut in 2018, our brands have strived to be the first to market with complete GDPR compliance in mind with as little disruption to our customers as possible. For Mailjet, meeting the standards required was effortless given our existing footprint in France and data center based in Belgium. With data privacy top of mind, Mailjet was one of the first email service providers to be GDPR compliant well ahead of its effective date.

Mailgun was quick to follow, but being a US-based company provided some challenges. Customers sending from the EU needed a data facility based in their region. While many of our competitors opted for the now struck down EU-US Privacy Framework, we opted for a data center of our own based in Germany. While many of our competitors opted for the now struck down EU-US Privacy Framework, we opted for a data center of our own based in Germany. Paired with a dashboard that allowed for easy data migration to our EU environment, Mailgun became one of the first US-based, GDPR compliant email service providers with the most user-friendly migration process.
