A new era has begun in e-Government! Citizens flocked
While getting tired of hundreds of notifications sent to the citizens' phones and e-mails, the Message Management System was put into use on the web, e-Government and mobile application as of January 7. While people who wanted to get rid of unsolicited messages were stunned to see the number of service providers allowed to send them, they chose to revoke most permissions.
While a message, a phone call, or both can be canceled by entering the IMS, companies must stop sending commercial electronic messages within three business days following the notification of rejection. For those who do not abide by this period, a complaint section will be opened on the site. However, this process will start after the end of the 45-day control and change period.
After February 16, citizens will be able to complain about companies that continue to send them advertisements despite the cancellation of the notification, by filling out the form and again on the site.
750 THOUSAND PEOPLE TRANSACTIONED
With the system established by TOBB, citizens can get rid of the messages of the companies they do not want in a simple and practical way. According to the information obtained, 750 thousand people in 5 days entered the Citizen.iys.org.tr system and changed the permission data of nearly 14 million. Thus, each person made changes in an average of 19 leaves.
Authorities drew attention to the fact that this number will grow even more in the coming days with the recognition of the İYS. While the citizen saw that some companies were not on the list when he entered the İYS, the authorities stated that the system currently includes companies with more than 150 thousand commercial electronic message approvals. The deadline for other companies with less than 150 thousand approvals to register in the IYS was determined as May 31, 2021. Thus, citizens will be able to see these companies on the IMS screen as of June 1, 2021. All natural and legal persons who want to send commercial messages, that is, to market via phone or SMS, e-mail, have to register with the IMS system. These persons and companies will not be able to send audio, written electronic messages to any citizen who does not have an IMS approval.
