Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know how you got the email addresses please?
Hi, from http://www.justanswer.co.uk/
I think you misunderstand. The email addresses you want to email, how did you got hold of those?
Off the internet either directly from company's website and/or some from trade associations also on the internet, ie they listed the members
Ok - so they are in the public domain?
As long as they are and you give an opt out, bearing mind they are a business you can email them.
1. Its legal to send to businesses in the UK
2. Its legal to send to businesses outside the UK
At worst this is spam and will be ignored.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
does it make a difference if it is *****@******.*** / co.uk or say *****@******.*** / or co.uk in the sense that the latter is to an individual
You can't send it to an individual unless they consent.
But you can send it to the business
The latter would be to a business's email with a persons name at the beginning its a business email
That is ok. As long as it is not the personal private email address
Ok thanks a lot that answers what I wanted to know.
Great. Can I help with anything else today?
No thats fine thanks, it may be of interest to you that in Germany cold emailing b2b is not allowed.
Thank you that is interesting. If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go - the button is at the bottom. Thanks
