The Key issues our clients are concerned with are these –
- Providing a simple “opt-out” opportunity. Consumers should be provided with an opportunity to decline to have their information used for any further marketing purposes by a third party. This can be implemented by the ease of an opt-out opportunity before, during and after their basic information is collected.
- DeliverabilityInstead of antagonising. Consumers who desire anonymity, our policy is that List Owners should endeavour to provide 100% deliverability to optimise the continuing validity of the data and thus users of lists are encouraged to return “dead” mail.
- Products & Services Only Ethical Products or Services should be offered, mailed or phoned at an agreeable time and date, by persons who understand what they are selling (particularly for Telemarketing). In the case of a mailing, we usually view the envelope and inserts. In the case of Telemarketing, the sample provided to us would include the script. Marketers should endeavour to ensure that all material disseminated is identical to the sample. In cases where those involved in the rental process are well known to each other (ie have worked together successfully in the past) it may be sufficient to obtain prior agreement on the nature of the offer.
