Enabling Opt Out by Reply

The three key steps you should follow are:

  • Consent – Only send commercial electronic messages with the addressee’s consent – either express or inferred consent
  • Identification – Include clear and accurate information about the person or business that is responsible for sending the commercial electronic message
