Are there rules specifically governing unsolicited electronic marketing (spam)?

  • clear and simple guidance on how to unsubscribe from the marketing material, including the provision of an opt-out mechanism;
  • the sender’s identity; and
  • a guarantee that the recipient’s personal data will be treated with confidentiality, in accordance with his or her rights.
