Spammed after Subscribing to An Email Newsletter

A survey conducted by email privacy certification service email privacy revealed a staggering 87% of internet users believing that they have been spammed after they subscribed to an email newsletter.

The 2004 survey conducted by Relemail also showed 83% of users avoided subscribing to an email newsletter because they weren’t sure they could trust the publisher, and 78% do not always believe companies’ own email privacy statements.

On the positive side, 91% of users say they are more likely to give their business to an organization that follows ethical email practices and respects their privacy, and 72% said they are more likely to subscribe to an email newsletter that has been independently certified as trustworthy.
