2. Recipients of premium rate or non-replyable messages must have the option to opt out at a cost of R1 or less. This opt-out instruction must be included in every commercial premium rate or non-replyable message, for example. "sms STOP to 32xxx to opt out".
5.1.5. Once a recipient has opted out from a service, a message confirming the opt-out should be sent to that recipient. This message must reference the specific service that the recipient has opted-out from, and may not be a premium rated message.
5.1.6. Where the words "END", "CANCEL", "UNSUBSCRIBE" or "QUIT" are used in place of "STOP" in an opt-out request, the service provider must honour the opt-out request as if the word "STOP" had been used.
5.1.7. Upon request of the recipient, the message originator must, within a reasonable period of time, identify the source from which the recipient's personal information was obtained.
5.1.8. Commercial communications may not be timed to be delivered between 20:00 and 06:00, unless explicitly agreed to by the recipient, or unless delivery during this period forms part of the up-front description of the service.
5.2. Identification of spam
5.2.1. Any commercial message is considered unsolicited (and hence spam) unless:
1. the recipient has requested the message;
2. the message recipient has a direct and recent prior commercial relationship with the message originator and would reasonably expect to receive marketing communications from the originator; or
3. the organisation supplying the originator with the recipient's contact information has the recipient's explicit consent to do so.
5.2.2. WASPA, in conjunction with the network operators, will provide a mechanism for consumers to determine which message originator or wireless application service provider sent any unsolicited commercial message.
5.3. Prevention of spam
5.3.1. Members will not send or promote the sending of spam and will take reasonable measures to ensure that their facilities are not used by others for this purpose.
5.3.2. Members will provide a mechanism for dealing expeditiously with complaints about spam originating from their networks.
