Finnish Skijumping Federation / Kansallistalkoot.fi: Soliciting contributions by spamming

Finnish Skijumping Federation is spamming, trying to suggest that sponsoring their activity would be tantamount to national community unpaid work (the name of the spam-advertised website, kansallistalkoot.fi, translates to “national community unpaid work”). I reject the notion. To me, there is no sense of community unpaid work in the Finnish Skijumping Federation (Finnjumping ry, a sub-association of Suomen Hiihtoliitto, the Finnish Ski Federation) soliciting businesses for monetary donations.

The spam was sent by Oraakkeli Oy (www, biz reg) on behalf of Finnjumping ry (www, biz reg) through the resources of StreamSend, whose Acceptable Use Policy forbids the sending of UCE and whose Legal Agreements (item 5, specifically) prohibit the use of purchased lists.

Judging from the fact that Oraakkeli are no longer using the resources of A2 Web Hosting as they were before, I’d say they’ve already experienced what happens naturally to spammers, and haven’t taken heed (which also is to be expected of spammers). StreamSend kicking them off will be their second strike, and after the eventual third strike, I should hope that somebody else would notice as well ūüėÄ

Oraakkeli are processing outdated and erroneous personal information, which is illegal (Section 9.2 of the Personal Data Act), and consequently sending UCE to natural persons, which is also illegal (Section 26 of the Act on the Protection of Privacy in Electronic Communications).

Oraakkeli announce it is their own marketing register to which this was sent, but how on earth did they manage to include specific super outdated addresses that are only to be found in lists sold by Fonecta? (Unless they purchased a list from Fonecta, of course, which is what I suspected earlier already. Given that Fonecta are one of the sponsors of the Kansallistalkoot.fi campaign, and the Fonecta CMO is the Chairman of Finnjumping ry, wouldn’t that be just super surprising?)
