Definition of Spam
Spam is the sending of unsolicited and unauthorized e-mails or online communications such as but not limited to bulletin boards, usergroups or instant messaging services to individuals or businesses who do not know you personally. And who have not agreed or requested to receive your emails. Or have not provided their email address directly to the sender. Or an email sent to a recipient who would not have a reasonable expectation of receiving email from the sender. Spam can be a single email or a bulk mailing.
Posting messages to Usenet or News Group groups that explicitly forbid the posting of commercial solicitations or solicitations not pertaining to their content is Spam.
Buying a list of emails from a third party and individually or bulk emailing them is considered Spam.
Opt-out lists where a person is specifically required to request removal from a mailing list in order to prevent solicitation is Spam.
Hiring a company that is mailing out to a list of people with your opportunity that did not specifically request to receive your information beforehand is considered Spam.
Emailing through an approved DOUBLE Opt-in list provider is NOT considered Spam. Double opt-in means that not only did the people request to be on the list, they verified it by approving the request a second time. The BEST guideline for knowing whether or not an email is Spam is if someone did not specifically request the information then it is SPAM.
Promoting Your Site on FFA (Free For All) sites is NOT allowed.
FFA sites (Free For All) sites and similar programs have a HIGH RISK of generating Spam complaints because of the nature of that type of program. Advertising on FFA sites is not permitted for promoting any web site, related web site and/or services. Any complaints generated from advertising with FFA programs will be treated as Spam.
Free For All Sites are sites with lots of links to peoples’ web sites. You are told that if you list your site, you will have your own FFA site where you can send people to post their links. Your link will be replicated to many other sites. You are told that everytime someone adds their link, they will get an email telling them about your opportunity.
Then, your link is also on their site, and everyone who adds a link to their site gets an email from you. This leads to an enormous amount of email going out from you, automatically. Many people who put links on FFA sites don’t realize that the tons of email they get is simply a result of posting their link, then they complain of SPAM.
FFA sites are notorious for generating Spam complaints. Marketing Club20K Autopilot on FFA sites is not allowed and will be treated as Spam.
Policy for using lists obtained from 3rd Parties
In general, many email lists obtained from third parties are culled from internet web sites, domain registrations, and other NON opt-in sources. The use of such lists with our system is prohibited.
There are certain cases when the use of a list obtained from a third party may be acceptable, however. In order for a mailing to a third party list to be acceptable under our unsolicited email policies, the following rules must be adhered to:
The email addresses obtained by the third party must be strictly opt-in, and follow all of our policies regarding opt-in email list collection.
The third party assembling the email list must make a clear disclosure stating that recipients’ addresses ARE provided to others.
The third party must be able to provide documentation regarding the validity of the addresses in case of an unsolicited email complaint.
Any messages sent to addresses obtained from a third party must contain information disclosing the source of the addresses. IF A THIRD PARTY PROHIBITS SUCH DISCLOSURE, THEIR LIST MAY NOT BE USED WITH OUR SYSTEM.
The content of messages sent to addresses from a third party list must be consistent with the disclosure made to the recipients upon initial provision of the email address.
As a list owner, you are fully responsible for any third party’s adherence to our policies for lists which you obtain and use in our system. Any violation of our policies by third parties will be seen as violations by you, and will subject your account to suspension, termination, and penalty fees accordingly.
WARNING: No reputable opt-in list company will sell you email addresses.
