Colombia - Superintendencia de Industria Y Comercio

In Colombia there are no specific anti-spam regulations; instead, Colombia uses the constitutional right of Habeas data, which protects privacy and data. Habeas data was codified in the Colombian constitution in 1997, giving users the right to control data about themselves. In 2003, a court ruled that Colombians have a constitutional right to opt out of spamming lists and to have their data protected.

In 2004, the national legislator introduced a new bill in Congress, which proposes an opt-out system. (Proyecto de ley  142/04S para regular el spam en Colombia of 20 October 2004.
