Two Companies Receive Formal Spam Warnings
PRIVACY LAW—AUSTRALIAFebruary 10, 2012
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has formally warned two Sydney-based businesses that they have violated the Spam Act by sending marketing materials to people without consent. An ACMA press release states that the businesses have not worked to improve their practices after ACMA attempts to inform them of their obligations under the act. One of the companies also did not include an opt-out method in its messages, which is required under the law.
