Has your organization complied with incoming anti-spam law?

On May 14, 2014, RIWI immediately complied with the vital Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation coming into effect on July 1, 2014. It is RIWI’s opinion that all companies that solicit or communicate with Canadians by email should inquire into how to comply rapidly. As the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) points out:
“The CRTC is committed to reducing the harmful effects of spam and related threats to electronic commerce and is working towards a safer and more secure online marketplace. Canada’s new anti-spam legislation will better protect Canadians while ensuring that businesses can continue to compete in the global marketplace.”

Does your company capture information through email communications with any Canadians? If so, you may wish to review the incoming law.
