Chat bots are back and they want to sell products to teens

    Wouldn’t a chat bot messaging me about products and services go against Canadian Anti-spam Legislation? I was pretty sure the legislation would include all digital addresses including email, sms, and other messaging services.

    The only way I could see this working without interruption would be if they offer the ability to opt out of these advertising services.

      IF it’s indeed regulated, then it would have to be an « opt in » … not an « opt out »!

      Only phone sollicitation works under the « opt out » principle…
