Statement for SEA subscribers and interested parties concerning SEA e-mail alerts
Subscribers will be aware that SEA regularly sends out news e-mail alerts to everyone on our database. We are only interested in sending e-mails to interested parties and do not want to annoy people who don’t want the information. To this end, SEA has investigated where we sit in relation to government legislation regarding spam and provide the following information to subscribers.
What is spam?
According to Australian government guidelines, e-mails are only spam if they come from commercial organizations, solicit for commercial exchange and are sent to parties without their consent. SEA’s activities do not fit within any of these categories. E-mails are not spam if they only contain factual information.
- Is not a commercial organisation.
- Does not solicit for commercial exchange.
- Considers that consent is implied by virtue of subscription.
- Ensures that all e-mails sent contain factual information exclusively.

- All e-mails contain clear instructions about how to unsubscribe from our database.
- All e-mails clearly indicate that the source is SEA.
