iOptOut Improves the Lame-Duck Canadian Do-Not-Call Registry System

The internet to the rescue…

The [Canadian do-not-call] registry is scheduled to take effect in mid-2008, yet many Canadians may be disappointed to learn about the exemption of a wide range of organizations (registered charities, business with prior relationships, political parties, survey companies, and newspapers)… However, organizations must remove numbers from their lists if specifically requested to do so… iOptOut [allows] Canadians to create and manage a personal do-not-call list… where you can opt-out of further contact from exempt organizations… [by sending] an email notification to each organization on your behalf requesting that your name, email address and phone number(s) be removed from their active marketing lists.
