I've been getting a couple of spams from NZ companies lately.
They've all been sending to an e-mail address that has been published in the .nz WHOIS database, and nowhere else.
I've put together a message in response, and I'd like to know what you think - hae I interpreted and linked to the right law and policies?
This message is written by me and it (and its subsequent revisions) is free for anyone to use and change.
Here it is:
I don't remember consenting to receiving commercial electronic messages from you.
Under Section 1, Subsection 2, Clause 3 of the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007 [ref 1], I request information on how I came to be on your mailing list.
The address you sent to, (insert WHOIS-only e-mail here), is published only in the NZ Domain Name Commission's WHOIS database. This database is for identification and technical queries only, as allowed under Section 3.2 of the NZ Domain Name Commission WHOIS Policy [ref 2]
If I receive another commercial message from you, without a satisfactory response to the above query, I will notify the relevant authorities.
(ps: the current offender is Farnell New Zealand. I've never even heard of them until today)
(edit: added " without a satisfactory response to the above query" to the sample message)
