Please note that date of birth needs to be provided as DD/MM/YYYY (day/month/year).
Also note that Country, State/province, gender, and "do not contact" need to be entered in a specific manner.

We'll match the email address you're importing to an existing record and automatically update Jon's first name to "Jonathan".
