TERMS & CONDITIONS
What must I do to ensure that my marketing email or SMS is legal?
Using email or SMS to send information about your products and services is legal as long as it complies with the Spam Control Act.
The Act sets out basic requirements for legitimate mass electronic marketing ("legal spam") -
i. Use the label
ii. Provide a means for your recipient to "unsusbscribe" to future mailings
The Unsubscribe Facility must contain contact information in the form of an email address, and tel or fax number that the recipient can use to submit an unsubscribe request. It is strongly suggested that the unsubscribe facility should take the same form as the spam message - for example, email spam should allow the recipient to unsusbscribe by email and SMS spam should offer an unsubscribe number which the recipient can submit through his mobile phone.
iii. The unsubscribe facility must be open for 30 days. Once an unsubscribe request is submitted, you have 10 days to remove the unsubscriber from your mailing list.
