Mexican law approaches the spam problem not through specific anti-spam legislation, but instead through a consumer protection law that is designed to regulate advertising and marketing on the Internet. The legislation gives consumers the right to know whether their personal information is being collected and stored, the type of information collected, and whether their information is distributed to third parties. Consumers can demand correction or deletion of inaccurate information. In addition, consumers can opt out of receiving unsolicited commercial messages via the Internet.
