I have a question about a list that I was provided and if it would be considered spam or not.
The list is provided to us from by small trade magazine we advertise in. The people on this list receive a free copy of the magazine if they agree to emails, phone calls, etc. from companies that advertise in the magazine.
This seems OK to me. I just want to be sure that it is in accordance with campaign monitor policies?
I feel like our situation would fall into this category:
They completed an offline form and indicated they wanted to be emailed
If someone completes an offline form like a survey or enters a competition, you can only contact them if it was explained to them that they would be contacted by email AND they ticked a box indicating they would like to be contacted.
Sorry, that wouldn't comply. They didn't explicitly ask you to contact them. In this case it sounds like your list was provided by a third party (the magazine), which is definitely against our policies.
