The Australian Communications and Media Authority has given a formal warning to Melbourne-based company, Ezystays Pty Ltd, following an investigation that found it breached the Spam Act by sending marketing emails without consent of the recipients.
Ezystays is an Australian company that provides travel related products and services. The ACMA received complaints alleging Ezystays had sent marketing messages by email without the recipient’s consent. Ezystays claimed it was able to send the emails because the recipients’ email addresses appeared on a purchased marketing list. The investigation concluded that the fact an email address appeared on a marketing list did not mean that Ezystays had consent from the recipients to send them marketing messages — via redwolf.newsvine.com
