It is not really 1 question but about 3. As the legislation draws nearer to becoming law more and more questions come to the surface. Below are questions our clients have asked us. At this stage we are researching with our law firm partners for any possible answers.
- If a Mobilize Mail client sends out an email on behalf of their client will they be in breach of the law if the mailing list they send to contains harvested email addresses but the Mobilize Mail client did not know before sending?
- If a Mobilize Mail client sends out an email on behalf of their client to a mailing list they know contains harvested emails will they be in breach of the law?
- Does a business or person who sends out emails on behalf of other businesses or individuals have a responsibility to check whether the email addresses have not been harvested or in the case of sending out a promotional message have had prior consent from the person responsible for the electronic address (or by any person who uses that address); ?
Interesting and valid questions. I will be researching with our business partner law firm and get back to you.
