Most web designers will be aware of the US CAN-SPAM legislation which contains some requirements for commercial email. However, if you have clients from other countries, there may be other requirements you need to be know.
Fortunately, Mark Brownlow has saved us some time by creating a page of links to anti-spam laws in various regions. It’s a good URL to bookmark and review when taking on a new client.
Being aware of your legal obligations is important, but equally important is understanding Campaign Monitor’s anti-spam policies. We often have to explain to designers that just because their emails are legal does not mean they can be sent via Campaign Monitor.
Being informed will save you time, and help you avoid having your account impacted, or worse, legal trouble.
