We would like to send all representatives and senators our weekly e-newsletter. We were wondering if there was a way to create a group of constituents based on the Advocacy target's contact information in Luminate, so we can include them in our target audience. Can I get an import file with this information so that we can do this in mass?
Luminate support and anybody else at Blackbaud can not provide such a file because in doing so it would violate our own Acceptable Use Policy regarding permission-based email:
"Clients will ensure that all email addresses that are added to its Convio database and marked to receive email are those of individuals who have consented to receive email from the Client. Such consent may be obtained online, by phone, or on paper forms. At the point of email address collection, Client shall ensure that the nature of the email end users will receive is described and the brand(s) under which Client will send email are identified."
