Website designer fined for email spam

Website designer Bunology faces fines of $11,000 imposed by the Australian Media and Communications Authority (ACMA) for sending unsolicited commercial email to users without gaining their consent under the Spam Act 2003 (Cth).

The website designer used addresses from an email list which they have sourced from the internet for marketing purposes.

The fine is a warning to online businesses undertaking email marketing campaigns to avoid using email lists to refrain from using them to transmit email to recipients on the lists unless they have compiled the lists themselves.

It remains the responsibility of the sender to ensure that they check that the recipients have genuinely consented prior to send commercial email.
