Here's the SHORT VERSION. I have to shut down my current email subscriptions ( all 1500 of you :( ) because the wording on the emails you receive do not supply enough of my contact information to make the Canadian spam police happy. PLEASE use the form below if you would like to receive updates from Fred She Said Designs in the future :) NOTE this ONLY affects email subscriptions not feed subscriptions.
It has come to my attention that on July 1st 2014, Canada will put into effect new Anti Spam Legislation. Emails sent to Canadian individuals with any promotional or commercial language are illegal unless the sender has expressed permission to do so before the email is sent. I was misinformed that my email subscribership using FeedBurner was OK because it had a double opt in procedure to subscribe and a way to unsubscribe with every email sent out. Apparently that is not enough. On July 2, I will delete the old subscriber list as I can't find a way to edit the required info into email posts and I don't have an avenue to allow you to re-opt in. This will be the only email you will receive from Fred She Said Designs. NOTE this ONLY affects email subscriptions sent to your inbox not feed subscriptions. PLEASE use the form below if you would like to receive updates from Fred She Said Designs in the future :)
Please note, Fred She Said Designs only sends emails if you subscribe to updates and also to deal with customer orders and questions.
A word to the wise doing business. These new anti spam laws apply to you even if you live outside of Canada. I would advise really reading up on it because it is more strict and encompassing than you might think... and $1 million fines? yikes!
