How to run a GDPR compliant website + email list hosted by Dreamhost


We want to move our website (incl. an email newsletter list) + email hosting to Dreamhost but we’re in the UK.

How do we go about making sure we’re GDPR compliant? And is it possible given that Dreamhost is not part of the Privacy Shield framework?


Hi @christiaan,

DreamHost is GDPR compliant but not Privacy Shield certified. It should be noted, you do not need to be Privacy Shield certified to be GDPR compliant. You would be responsible for obtaining/maintaining your own certifications and compliance.
