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.
