Read More about Spam
Definition of Spam
Spam is unsolicited email sent in bulk. Any promotion, information or solicitation that is sent to a person via e-mail without their prior consent, where there is no pre-existing relationship between the sender and the recipient, is spam.
Examples of Spam
- Any e-mail message that is sent to a recipient who had previously signed up to receive newsletters, product information or any other type of bulk email but later opted-out by indicating to the sender that he or she does not want to receive any more emails, then that email is spam.
- Any e-mail message that is sent to a recipient that has had no prior association with the organization or did not agree to be e-mailed by the organization is spam.
- Any e-mail message that is sent to a recipient without a way for a person to opt-out or request that future mailings not be sent to him or her, is spam.
- Any email message that does not have a valid email address in the 'From Line' is spam.
- Any email message that contains any false or misleading information in the header, subject line or message itself is spam.
- Any email that says you can earn $1000s each week from home is spam.
- Any email message that promotes an adult web site is spam, unless the recipient has specifically requested information from that web site.
- Any message that contains "ADV:", "ADV ADLT:", or "ADV ADULT" in the subject is spam.
- Any message that is sent to e-mail addresses that have been harvested off of web sites, newsgroups, or other areas of the Internet is spam.
- Any message that is sent to e-mail addresses that have been gathered via "e-mail appending", also known as, e-pending, is spam. E-pending is the practice of merging a database of customer information that lacks e-mail addresses for the customers with a third party's database of e-mail addresses in an attempt to match the e-mail addresses with the information in the initial database.
What is not Spam
- An e-mail message is NOT spam if the recipient has in anyway requested that email be sent to him or her from the sender or the sender's organization.
- Anytime an organization sends a mass e-mail 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 mailings and that the customer did not previously opt-out.
- An e-mail message is NOT spam when sent to recipients who agreed to receive information or promotions from a partner organization (as long as there is a clear opt-out option).
Any customer that sends spam is in violation of this Anti-Spam policy. .
