 Due to the Privacy Laws in Canada, no unsolicited SMS text can be sent to a customer for marketing purposes. Even if the customer gives their verbal consent at the place of business, this is insufficient. In order to be legal, the business would set up an account with Message Media and in an advertisement (or poster on the wall) they can offer their customers the ability to “Opt In” by texting Message Media directly. Message Media would then send a message to the business saying that it is now ok for the business to text this customer. I believe it is ok to SMS text a customer non-marketing material, for example that their vehicle service is finished or their special order has arrived. \\ \\ Due to the Privacy Laws in Canada, no unsolicited SMS text can be sent to a customer for marketing purposes.
