DMA REMINDS MEMBERS TO UPDATE PRIVACY POLICIES TO REFER CONSUMERS TO DMACHOICE

Learn about membership in DMA

Most DMA members know about the Association’s name-removal service for consumers who want to reduce the overall volume of mail they receive from companies they don’t already do business with.  Operational since 1971, DMA’s Mail Preference Service (MPS) – now DMAchoice – is as important as ever in demonstrating the effectiveness of self-regulation.  In fact, under the Association’s “Commitment to Consumer Choice” (CCC) guidelines, which were introduced last October, consumer marketers are required to use the DMAchoice file every month (instead of quarterly, the old requirement).  Moreover, to achieve that commitment, a consumer’s request for in-house suppression should be honored within 30 days, and for a period of at least three years from the date of receipt of request. 

DMA now wants to remind members that consumers interested in registering for DMAchoice should be referred to our new website for online registration:  www.DMAchoice.org.  Please do not refer consumers to an outdated PO Box in Farmingdale, NY, as it has been closed, and mail is returned to consumers.  Also, please ensure that you review and update your website and privacy policy statement to include the new DMAchoice web address.
