This post will clear up all of the CAN-SPAM and CCPA concerns, along with documentation that you can pass along to your legal team that supports what’s in this post. 

Now that’s out of the way, let’s talk about the US CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, and why GetEmails is not only legal, but also complies with industry best practices.

According to the US CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 you do NOT need an opt-in to send email marketing in the USA. In Europe, you do; but in the US, you don’t.

To be CAN-SPAM compliant, all you need is an opt-out link in the communication, and you need to make it clear that it’s an advertisement, along with a few other requirements (see below).

If you want more details to pass along to your legal team, download our legal packet prepared for us by our friends at Foley and Lardner, LLP.

Spamhaus’ definition of SPAM is not the law, but it’s what we’re all familiar with. It’s also what we’re taught by major Email Service Providers (ESPs) like Mailchimp and the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like Gmail/Hotmail.
