SparkPost EU

At SparkPost we recognize that data, where it resides, and how it’s protected, is of huge importance to European businesses and their customers — as it should be. In response to our customers’ needs, today we are launching SparkPost EU, our email API service located entirely within the European Union. With the launch of SparkPost EU, our European customers can enjoy the same low-latency, high-performance email delivery as SparkPost’s U.S. customers, which include LinkedIn, Pinterest, The New York Times, Twitter, MailChimp, and Zillow.

Unlike other email API vendors who offer services in the EU but process and send the emails from the U.S., SparkPost EU is hosted entirely in Europe, with email processing and delivery originating from European infrastructure. No matter the size of the business or the volume of messages they send, with SparkPost EU our customers can breathe easy knowing their data rests in the EU.

GDPR Compliance

Alongside SparkPost EU, we’re also announcing that we are compliant with the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) both as a data controller and data processor. SparkPost is already certified under the joint EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework governing personal data transfer between the EU and U.S. Together, SparkPost EU and our GDPR Compliance demonstrate our steadfast commitment to global compliance, data protection, and privacy rights.

We invite you to sign up for a SparkPost EU account. If you’d like to learn more, check out our API documentation and the SparkPost EU pricing.

In addition, you can read the full press release, check out our SparkPost EU FAQs and view our updated Postman collection here.
