We have a zero-tolerance
Anti-Spam policy

Read this carefully. If you use our service, you are contractually obligated to observe ALL the provisions

You may not use our services to spam others. Spamming here is the sending of mass e-mail to people unless such people have clearly, knowingly, and intentionally opted in to receive e-mail from you at a site owned by you. Use of compiled lists, acquired or harvested lists, third-party opt-in lists, or deceptively or compulsively obtained addresses is considered unsolicited spam.

This policy applies to any resource connected with spamming including, but not limited to, originating spam from our servers, having e-mail accounts, web sites, DNS or other services that are referenced directly, indirectly, or implicitly by spam, the support of spamming activity, through the provision of products that assist in the spamming process, or any related use. Accordingly, if you purchase spamming services from an independent company rather than doing it yourself, you are still a spammer for purposes of this document.

Why the draconian policy?

Spamming is now a felony in at least one state of the USA. In addition, there are a number of people that get so annoyed with spam that they will take extralegal means to interfere with service. In addition, delivery of spam leads to blackholing of e-mail from neighboring or related IP numbers. All of these can extremely harm the service of many other people. Accordingly, we have a very firm policy on the matter of spamming.

One strike and you're out

The first time we receive a complaint that you have been spamming we will research the claim. If we determine, at our sole discretion, the complaint is valid, use of all regular services from us will be shut down via DNS redirect. You will then have a further 5 days to retrieve any data you desire via your private URLs.

Regulation and monitoring
of your outbound mail traffic

Use of outbound mail from our facilities is a privilege that can be monitored or withdrawn. In order to prohibit use of our services for spamming purposes, and protect others using our service, we reserve the following to ourselves:

We will monitor the anti-spam newsgroups for complaints against your domains or IP numbers used by you.

We reserve the right to restrict the amount of outbound bandwidth you can consume for purposes of sending e-mails, and/or prohibit your sending outbound mail entirely.
If we see large volumes of outbound mail from your server or through our e-mail service, we can and will read it to determine if it contains spam. For this purpose, 10,000 messages and/or recipients per day or more normally considered "large."
If you send large amounts of legitimate mail, you may need to tell us to configure your server to allow this.

Financial penalties for spamming

If we are find you are spamming, we will seek financial redress from you via the mechanisms provided in our service agreement for any harm caused to us, including the direct costs of researching and acting upon complaints, costs resulting from black listing, and any other costs, as well as and damage to our reputation, or loss of business.

How can you avoid being treated as a spammer?

Don't spam. Specifically, if you are going to send mass mailings, make sure that everyone on that list has specifically consented to be on that mailing list for the specific purposes of learning about your products or services. Make sure that consent to be on the list is done in a clear, non-coercive, and non-deceptive way. Do not purchase or use e-mail names from other people. Many of the companies selling such names are fraudulent ventures. But more importantly, even if these people had consented to receive information from others about their products and services, they did not consent to receive information from you about yours. Make sure that your site publishes a privacy policy, and that you adhere to that policy. Similarly, make sure that people have a convenient way to be removed from your list when they no longer want information from you, and that if the removal process is not automated, that you promptly remove all such names.
