- Mar 22, 2013Well, in case of this particular website, the contact information
actually is there.... including fancy Google maps of their Tokyo, Japan
and San Mateo, Calif. offices, phone numbers, etc. It's just not very
I clicked "About us", no real company info there. Clicked "Contact &
Support", again, no real company info there. Normally, I would have
given up at this point, thinking of "another website owner that probably
has a good reason to stay anonymous". Only after more careful looking I
noticed the link pointing to the office address etc.
By the way, it's interesting to see that you consider US spam laws
"strict". I might be wrong but I believe that you can actually spam as
much as you like in the US, you just have to provide a simple and
functional opt-out mechanism and perhaps real company contact details in
each spam message. In CZ, you first have to obtain the recipient's
permission before you can send them any unsolicited marketing mails. Now
that's what I'd call strict... (of course, actual enforcement is a
totally different chapter).
