What are the rules for matching contacts?

The rule for matching Individual contacts on import is by default first_name AND last_name AND email. Import uses the configured default 'Strict' dedupe rule for each type of contact. You can review and changes these in Administer CiviCRM >> Find and Merge Duplicate Contacts >> Edit Rule(s). See Find and Merge Duplicate Contacts for more information.
