Unsolicited campaign messages sent by companies and other institutions will become history with the Message Management System (IMS), which will come into effect on December 1. Here are the details of the new system ..
Unwanted messages are one of the things that smartphone users complain about the most. Many companies can send their products or information messages as SMS to users' phones.
The number of complaints received by the Ministry of Commerce regarding unauthorized e-mails and SMS sending has exceeded 500 thousand. The Ministry has started a study on the subject and created the Message Management System (CMS) in order to manage and control commercial electronic messages.
The system will enable commercial electronic message approval, exercise of the right to refuse, and management of complaint processes.
They will no longer have to take permission from the user
Turkey Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges (TOBB), established by the Message Management System (CMS) will formally enter into force as of December 1st. With the aforementioned system, companies will have to obtain permission from users for commercial messages as well as celebration messages such as holidays and New Year's and satisfaction surveys.
According to the information transferred, the numbers or e-mail addresses of the persons who allow commercial messages to be sent to them will be registered in the İYS system. No company will be able to send a message to users without obtaining approval from the İYS.
In addition, companies that do not register with the IYS will both lose their number list and face various penalties.
CITIZENS WILL CHECK
With the IYS system, citizens will be able to close the institutions that they do not want to receive messages, or arrange the permission of each institution to send messages separately.
