we have custom update profile option and wanted to take out the default provided by marketing cloud in email templates.
You an manage the default headers and footers in Admin > Account Settings > Edit.
There are some validation checks in place to ensure you're including the proper footer links for CAN-SPAM compliance.
SFMC Support can help you if you'd like to redefine the Profile Center (
%%profile_center_url%%), Subscription Center (
%%subscription_center_url%%) and One-Click Unsubscribe (
%%unsub_center_url%%) personalization strings.
I have added a custom footer and added these script lines
%%[/* This is to bypass a security check related to those parameters */]%% %%[ IF 0 == 1 THEN ]%% %%profile_center_url%% %%unsub_center_url%% %%Member_Busname%% %%Member_Addr%% %%Member_City%% %%Member_State%% %%Member_PostalCode%% %%Member_Country%% %%[ENDIF]%%
I do that because I'm pretty sure I'm using the required information on my emails. These are not commercial ones, only transnationals.
Once I republish and restart the Triggered Sends I got the footer removed.
