  • French definitions:- L'opt-in actif : l'internaute doit volontairement cocher une case (ou faire défiler un menu déroulant) pour que les données puissent être utilisées ultérieurement à des fins commerciales.- L'opt-in passif : une case est déjà pré-cochée (ou un menu déroulant déjà présent) sur la réponse affirmative.- L'opt-out actif : l'internaute doit cocher une case (ou sélectionner un menu déroulant) pour ne pas recevoir de message ultérieurement.- L'opt-out passif : lorsqu'il s'inscrit ou s'abonne à un service, l'internaute est inscrit d'office sans qu'il ait la possibilité de changer son choix. Il ne peut se désinscrire qu'a posteriori.
  • Show Nuance example
  • Building your own list has many advantages, including:Less expensive – if you build your list organically from your own activities, you will build a better quality list for less money.More effective – since you built this list and the recipients have opted-in to your communication (a list-building best practice), you have a highly targeted list. This means that the names on your list are very interested in your services or products.Ownership – if you have acquired these addresses directly, you own the names. You do not need to pay additional money each time you send and an email to your list.The largest disadvantage is the time it an takes to build the list.
