Now this I disagree with.....
« on: September 27, 2013, 10:03:04 PM »
On the last Vulcan raffle I sold quite a few tickets for the cause and after coming back from holiday this week people are informing me that they have personally received(without asking) 2 books of raffle tickets for the next raffle ........

Obviously they didn't think or agree to get bombarded with this sort of thing as they put their e-mail and/or personal addresses on the tickets and are saying that they will be sent back unsold.

I have been supporting/giving to the Vulcan for a while and I think this approach is wrong being that the winners of the last one were only announced only 3 weeks ago......

I think they may have shot themselves in the foot on this one.......

Mac, presumably neither you, or those you sold to read the bit under the email line on the stub, which clearly states (with a very clear box) that the Trust will contact you unless you CROSS the box. They need to build up a database of potential supporters, and are fulfilling legal obligations by providing an opt-out. So yes actually, they did agree to be 'bombarded' (one mailshot is hardly a bombardment though).




Edit: Thanks Mark, just edited to say CROSS in the box.

Well it doesn't say that on this batch of tickets,it says e-mail you with news not contact through the post.......
I am not after any argument here just passing on the thoughts of other people who aren't as passionate as I/we are about her........
I would have thought sending tickets out to the original seller may have been a better idea..........

It does say email news on 558, nothing about postings.
