Fine to a company for sending spam

Η Kogan μια εμπορική εταιρεία στην “κέρδισε” ένα πρόστιμο 237.811 $ (AU $ 310.800) following an investigation by the Australian Communications Authority (ACMA) which found that its online affiliate was in gross violation of spam laws.

The ACMA investigation revealed that Kogan sent more than 42 million marketing to consumers from 13 to 15 December 2019, which could not be easily deleted.

To remove the company customers from the list they had to create an account with a password, log in to their account and then delete.

According to the Australian Spam Act, commercial e-mails must contain a functional deletion feature.

“Kogan's breaches have affected millions of consumers. "The ACMA has received complaints from a number of recipients of Kogan's emails expressing their frustration and concern about the company's practices," ACMA President Nerida O'Loughlin said.

“Businesses should comply with takedown requirements s in the spam rules. This research makes it clear that no one can force customers to set a password to log in and unsubscribe from receiving commercial messages.”

O'Loughlin noted that the ACMA sent Kogan "multiple compliance notices" before the investigation began. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns

  1. … Mmm and they will definitely pay the fine…
    As long as they pay for it and as many fraudulent shops sell seaweed for silk ribbons in Greece that, after eating the world's francs, and after receiving the fine, they fired a cannon and became Louis…

    And this while in China, another Chinese official was executed for corruption (kickbacks, etc.). But we and the other EU countries and the Anglo-Saxon array, we are "civilized".

    Υγ. and then George friend, you wonder what you are still doing here (as you say in your moto and I have started to tell my friends about myself).

    Good month.
