Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act - Are you ready?
This Act came into force on 5 September 2007. It means that you need the consent of the recipient of any commercial email, SMS text and instant message before it is sent.
Companies have six months to get their house in order. If you send information to existing marketing lists you must:
- Get consent from every recipient of an electronic message
- Make sure the commercial electronic message has an "unsubscribe" facility
- Make sure the message clearly identifies who has authorized sending this message and how they can be contacted
- Not use "address-harvesting software" that searched the internet for electronic addresses
The consent requirement applies to one-off emails as well as bulk email. For a full a full explanation of the new regulations contact visit the Department for Internal Affairs website
