Interactive trade groups release e-mail marketing pledge

Published on .

New York--Three interactive associations announced Wednesday that they have banded together behind what they are calling the “E-mail Marketing Pledge.”

The groups--the Interactive Advertising Bureau, Network Advertising Initiative's Email Service Provider Coalition and TRUSTe--represent a combined membership of 1,509 interactive executives.

The groups said the pledge establishes "concrete definitions as to what constitutes unsolicited commercial e-mail (spam), prior business relationships, informed consent and various forms of opt in." It clearly states unsolicited commercial e-mail must not be sent.
