Subscriber ConsentZulu eDM views consent from two perspectives which are organizations that are : - Marketing to consumers (B2C). - Marketing to other businesses (B2B).
Marketing to consumers (B2C)Marketing to consumers (B2C) has the most well recognized laws. Explicit consent must be obtained by the organization no matter what. We hold that view across all borders. Your subscribers must have given you permission to send any electronic message. Permission must be obtained through one of the following: An online subscription form with records to match the subscription. Our preference is that you have a double opt-in mechanism that avoids misleading conduct. Our software provides this function. An offline form where a user filled in their details. Existing clients that have been stored in another system and have not been communicated for 12 months or less. A transaction record is necessary for proof that the customer was pre-existing and gave permission. We do not accept email only subscription, you must include first name, last name and other data that allows preferential No matter what – if you are marketing to consumers (B2C) you may never purchase a list and use that list in our software.
Marketing to other businesses (B2B)The only variance to the parameters for B2C marketers for B2B marketing that use our service is that B2B users may used inferred consent to build their marketing database. We are of the view that if an organization or ‘subscriber’ invites contact by publishing their organizational / business email then inferred consent is reached. That means the domain is a organization / email address that can not be a personal email. In our view personal email addresses are supplied by well know email services such as Yahoo, AOL, Gmail etc. Australian law is not clear when it comes to a corporate or business email addresses. For example email@example.com published on a directory by a small business owner constitutes an invitation to contact that person. US law is far less stringent. Our policy is this: No user of our software my scrape or use inferred consent for any domain that is not a business domain. We make no acceptions. Abuse & Resolution We monitor every campaign and account set-up. We have a well published video tutorial on how to keep Zulu eDM free. If users follow those steps they can never be described as indiscriminate eBlasters. Unfortunately some subscriber lists may have been over looked and cause a SPAM issues and so we need to investigate all abuse reports. We embed every email campaign sent from our servers with a Client ID and a Campaign ID, so recipients can easily report abuse to Zulu eDM and their mail providers. When we receive complaints through our abuse form, we investigate immediately. If the campaign or user account appears suspicious in any way, we’ll suspend the account during the investigation. Our software is designed to ensure email authentication and feed back from campaigns is immediate. We are registered with feedback loops and some government authorities so that we are alerted when our users’ recipients report abuse. If the reports exceed a certain threshold, we send a warning to the user and work with the user to educate them and prevent SPAM being sent in future. If the warnings exceed a reasonable threshold, we suspend the user’s account and investigate. Most ESPs and ISPs say a reasonable threshold for abuse complaints is 0.1 percent, which means 1 out of every 1,000 people reported your campaign as junk. We do not agree, although we are governed by what is accepted. We feel that some recipient take pleasure in reporting some email. We also believe that some recipients do not always understand the SPAM legislation or remember when they signed up to an organization’s list. If users of our software are more circumspect and focus delivering targeted and timely content there will be no issues. How we handle e-mails. We will preserve the content of any e-mail you send us if we believe we have the legal requirement to do so. Your e-mail message content may be monitored by us for trouble-shooting or maintenance purposes or if any form of e-mail abuse is suspected. Anti-SPOOF and Phishing We take protecting our email domains very seriously. Please refer to our published Ant—SPOOF and Phishing policy for exact details on email domains we use and how we use them. We take no responsibility if you have suffered loss due to a scam, your account has been compromised due to a Phishing email asking you to update your details or any other related incident. Security of Information Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Whilst we strive to protect such information, we do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information which you transmit to us.
