  • The direct marketer is considered the sender and is responsible for compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, which includes honoring opt-out requests. The direct marketer will be required to execute a standard email agreement.

  • A test email will be provided for review and approval prior to deployment. Additional charges will apply for more than two rounds of edits or changes.

Email Materials Requirements

  • HTML File (Send as an attached “.html” or “.htm” file). Please DO NOT create your HTML in Word. This program inserts problematic code.

    • Your company’s physical mailing address

    • A “Reply-To”Email Address

    • A Subject Line

    • Email addresses for testing purposes. Your email will be set up and a test email sent for approval. The email will not deploy until approval is received.

    • Seed email addresses to receive final email transmission. These email addresses will not be included in the tracking results so as not to skew the results

    • Opt-Out/Unsubscribe Suppression File. This is the list of individuals that have opted out of receiving emails from your company. This list will be suppressed against the recipient list to ensure CAN-SPAM compliance. This list must be kept up to date and provided prior to every deployment.
