DND Media issued Spam Act warning

E-marketer sent 30 emails without consent of the recipients

The Australian Communications and Media Authority has issued a formal warning to e-marketer DND Media for sending daily discount offers to consumers without their consent.

The ACMA found that the company sent 30 marketing emails between 5 February and 2 May 2013 which contravened the <i>Spam Act 2003</i>.

The company has been issued a formal warning under section 41 of the Act for contraventions of subsection 16(1) as the emails were commercial electronic messages.

An ACMA spokeswoman told Computerworld Australia that DND Media has not indicated whether it will continue e-marketing.

“If there are further complaints we will consider whether a further investigation is required,” she said.
