Anti-spam Laws

Definition

Anti-spam laws are laws designed to protect consumers from getting unsolicited and unwanted commercial emails. Anti-spam laws vary significantly across countries, but many countries have similar protections. In the United States, the CAN-SPAM Act (Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing) was passed in 2003. In 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation took effect in the European Union, creating new standards for data privacy and personal data that can affect email marketing.

Email service providers and email marketing platforms typically require compliance with anti-spam laws as part of their terms of service.
