This feature allows you to block people from the European Union (EU) from visiting your Campaigns. If you enable this feature, then any visitor to your Campaigns who has an EU IP Address will be redirected to a different URL of your choosing.
This allows you to block EU residents who are now subject to GDPR legislation.
There are two places you can access this setting in your Wishpond account:
