  • The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 covers commercial email messages in the United States. The European Union has a similar ePrivacy Directive.
  • The CAN-SPAM Act requires providing a visible and operable unsubscribe mechanism in all emails, and a legitimate physical address (or P.O. Box) of the business promoting its product or service.
  • HubSpot email templates are designed to include all required components of the CAN-SPAM laws, and cannot be modified to remove them. For more information, please see How to set up your email footer information
