NZ business owners should be aware of the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007 (Anti-SPAM Act).
Sending commercial email messages without following the Acts rules can get you into a lot of trouble as the DIA works hard to enforce this Act. Mobilize Mail has written extensively about the Anti-SPAM Act and how businesses can avoid falling foul of its rules.
The DIA have now created a newsletter for NZ businesses covering important news and topics related to the Act. The DIA’s description of this newsletter is below.
The Electronic Messaging Compliance Unit at Internal Affairs is about to begin the publication and distribution of a news letter called Compliance M@tters.
Compliance M@tters will be a regular electronic newsletter about complying with the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007. Items regarding our work, news of interest and urgent warnings regarding what may be considered significant scams will also be covered from time-to-time. We already provide publication and coverage of scams that are circulating on the Department’s website and through the use of social media.
The Department is also be interested in your feedback regarding the newsletter, and information on how to provide feedback will be outlined in the subscription and sign up process.
I recommend all businesses should subscribe to Compliance M@tters which you can do here: http://www.dia.govt.nz/diawebsite.nsf/wpg_URL/Services-Anti-Spam-Anti-Spam-eNews?OpenDocument
