Sending an unsolicited email is against law but we have taken all possible precautions to see to it that SPAM is discouraged and prevented. We follow a stringent policy of anti-SPAM and only those customers who conform to these regulations are allowed to these utilize our services.
We are highly sensitive to this policy and require that each message sent out includes an easy way for the subscriber to remove themselves via an automatic/manual ‘unsubscribe’ link. If a recipient emails back or calls our offices for requesting to be manually removed from a database, we will manually eliminate the recipient from their account.
What is not SPAM?
An email message is NOT SPAM if the recipient requested that the email be sent to them from the sender or the sender’s organization. Anytime an organization sends a bulk email message to one of its customers, it is NOT SPAM provided that the organization offers a way for the customer to opt-out of future mails and that the customer did not previously opt-out. An email message is NOT SPAM when sent to recipients who agreed to receive information or promotions from a partner organization (and as long as there is a clear opt-out option).
How do you avoid looking like a SPAMMER?
There are various ways of recognizing an email as SPAM or not SPAM. Examples of SPAM:
- If you have purchased a list of any kind and import it to send your emails
- If you do not provide a functioning unsubscribe option
- If you provide subject lines that could be misleading and falsely instigates the recipient to open
- If you have concealed your originating address or transmission path information
- If you are sending emails to people who have not agreed to join your list
- If you are sending emails to non-specific addresses or other general addresses
- If you have used somebody else’s email address or domain name without permission
- If you continue sending emails to people who have unsubscribed from your list
