The OneSignal push messaging service offered officially by Mautic does not necessarily meet the GDPR requirements defined as an EU norm in many respects. To compensate for this, a solution that is ‘compatible’ with the OneSignal push messaging service, but is technically based on Google – Firebase Cloud Messaging (hereafter: FCM), has been implemented, with which we can send push notifications to the Mautic managed contacts of our web- or mobile applications, with a constantly expanding range of functions.
The plug-in provides the same capabilities as the well-known OneSignal plugin, where GDPR-compliant Google – FCM is responsible for sending messages and storing related user data. The affected user data is thus stored in a completely isolated environment and used for messaging.
* Connected to a private Google Account, and free from any external data traffic, thus complying with EU – GDPR regulations.
For its usage we need:
At any push notification registration the corresponding push ID is stored also in Mautic, therefore notification can be sent by it.
With the usage of our plugin the contacts of a web- or even a mobile application could be able to subscribe to a push notification service, which could be managed by automatic campaigns of our Mautic (like in case of email communications).
If our contacts allow sending push notifications, we may also communicate with them via short direct messages (in our multi funnel marketing/multi channel marketing solutions).
