A transactional or relationship message is any message that has one or more of the following primary purposes: 1) facilitating the completion of a commercial transaction between the sender and the recipient; 2) providing product warranty, recall, safety or security information; 3) providing information regarding a subscription, membership, account, loan or comparable ongoing commercial relationship; 4) providing information related to an employment relationship or benefit plan in which the recipient is a participant; and, 5) delivering goods or services, including product updates, that the recipient is entitled to receive under the terms of a transaction that the recipient previously has agreed to enter into with the sender.
If the e-mail contains both commercial content and content that falls under the FTC's transactional or relationship message category, it would be considered commercial if either a) the recipient concludes from its subject line that the message advertises or promotes a product or service or b) the transactional or relationship content is not located at or near the beginning of the e-mail.
