    I have read a book in which I see the most of blackhat email marketings tricks are illegal now that is:

    1. Purchasing Email addresses for email marketing.
    2. Go through the website, forum and collect emails
    3. Renting Email addresses
    4. Exchanging email address with other email marketers


    Is true or not confirm


    I know most of Email marketers are using these tricks can you some one tell me more about that

    Thanks

    I believe these techniques have always been illegal or atleast for quite some time now.

    Nothing is illegal, until you get caught.

    Well, it all depends on which country you live in. If the user submitting his email address has agreed to it being sold or exchanged I can't see any problem with it.

    So true, if you go by the rulebook what isn't illegal anymore? The big guys used all these tactics to get the top years ago and suddenly it's not legal when the little guy tries to make a buck. Typical.

    Hi friend,

    Today e-marketing is a key communications tool in the marketing mix for small and medium sized enterprises. If you get it right, it is cost effective, targeted, personalised, measurable and good for attracting and retaining customers. Thus i think Gathering, storing or using information about customers, potential customers or suppliers, you must comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
    You must:

    * have permission to hold third-party information
    * store information securely
    * check whether you need to register with the Information Commissioner.
