Spam related privacy issues

New Zealand Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007

We manage and send newsletters and email marketing campaigns for many companies and organisations in New Zealand. All email campaigns and newsletters are sent to opt-in contact lists, we do not send spam or unsolicited email. Sending of unsolicited email is illegal in New Zealand under the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act and we take appropriate measures to ensure that all emails we send comply with this Act.

Subscribing to a contact list

When someone subscribes to a contact list our system will automatically send a confirmation email to the address provided. This confirmation email includes an activation link that must be clicked to activate the subscription. This allows us to confirm that the person subscribing is the owner of the supplied email address.

To unsubscribe from a contact list

All email campaigns and newsletters that we send include an unsubscribe link, usually located at the bottom of the email. Clicking this link will promptly unsubscribe from the contact list. Alternatively replying to the email to let the sender know that you would like to opt out of future emailings should resolve the problem. If you continue to have problems see the Reporting Violations section below.

To remove yourself from all lists

You can add yourself to our block list which will prevent our system from sending you further emails. Please allow up to 48 hours for this to come into effect. This is because emails already sent to you may not have arrived yet.

All email campaigns and newsletters we send are required to include contact information for the company responsible for the email, usually located at the bottom of the email. This information includes a contact address and/or telephone number.


The privacy of the companies we work for and their customers is very important to us. We collect and store personally identifiable information such as names and email addresses gathered through subscription forms. The information we collect is treated as confidential and will never be sold, given, rented, traded or otherwise disclosed to others.


We take appropriate measures and use appropriate technology to ensure the security of all personally identifiable information we keep, these measures include the use of up to date firewalls and secure Unix web and email servers.
