Anti-Spam Policy

The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 came into effect on January 1, 2004. In the past there was much nonsense bandied about regarding SPAM. We were pleased when the government laid out guidelines as to what is legitimate commercial email and what is not. It is our strong desire to ensure full compliance with the spirit and letter of our government’s actions. We present the following document on our anti-spam policy.

We intend to comply with each point as follows:

  1. We will not transmit a message that has header information that is technically accurate
    but includes an originating electronic mail address, domain name, or Internet Protocol
    the access to which was obtained by means of false or fraudulent pretenses or
    representations.

  2. We shall use a “from” line that accurately identifies the Advertiser, or any other party
    responsible for originating or transmitting a commercial electronic mail message.

  3. We shall not knowingly initiate any commercial electronic mail message with
    misleading header information, because we require that any such message accurately
    identify the computer used to initiate the message. We will not knowingly use, nor
    will we work with a third party that uses, another computer to relay or retransmit the
    message for purposes of disguising its origin.

  4. We will not initiate the transmission of a commercial electronic mail message if it has
    actual knowledge, or knowledge fairly implied on the basis of objective circumstances,
    that a subject heading of the message would be likely to mislead a recipient about an
    important fact regarding the contents or subject matter of the message.

  5. We will provide a clear and conspicuous “opt-out” mechanism that a recipient may use
    to submit an Internet-based request not to receive future commercial electronic mail
    messages from any party whose product, service, or website is advertised or promoted
    by the message.

  6. We will not assist in the origination of a message to an address if it has actual
    knowledge, or knowledge fairly implied on the basis of objective circumstances, that
    the electronic mail address of the recipient was obtained using an automated means
    from an Internet website or proprietary online service operated by another person, and
    such website or online service included, at the time the address was obtained, a notice
    stating that the operator of such website or online service will not give, sell, or
    otherwise transfer the address maintained by such website or online service to any
    other party for the purposes of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, electronic mail
    messages; or the electronic mail address of the recipient was obtained using an
    automated means that generates possible electronic mail addresses by combining
    names, letters, or numbers into numerous permutations.

  7. We will not assist in the origination of a message to an address if it has actual
    knowledge, or knowledge fairly implied on the basis of objective circumstances, that
    the electronic mail address of the recipient was obtained using an automated means
    from an Internet website or proprietary online service operated by another person, and
    such website or online service included, at the time the address was obtained, a notice
    stating that the operator of such website or online service will not give, sell, or
    otherwise transfer the address maintained by such website or online service to any
    other party for the purposes of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, electronic mail
    messages; or the electronic mail address of the recipient was obtained using an
    automated means that generates possible electronic mail addresses by combining
    names, letters, or numbers into numerous permutations.

  8. We are not in the business of initiating transmission of electronic mail containing
    sexually oriented material.

The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 also explicitly forbids various fraudulent practices that we have never endorsed or willingly been a party to. While it is unlikely that any of our customers have engaged in any of these practices, our compliance efforts require that we reiterate the fact that we expressly forbid its broadcasting media affiliates to transmit any
email message on behalf of a customer that:

  1. uses scripts or other automated means to register for multiple electronic mail accounts
    or online user accounts from which to transmit, or enable another person to transmit
    any email or knowingly use any relay or retransmission of an email from a computer
    or computer network that has been accessed without authorization;

  2. uses any computer without authorization, or intentionally initiates the transmission of
    multiple commercial electronic mail messages from or through such a computer;

  3. uses a computer to relay or retransmit multiple commercial electronic mail messages,
    with the intent to deceive or mislead recipients, or any Internet access service, as to
    the origin of such messages;

  4. is accomplished through the intentional transmission from any electronic mail
    addresses or online user accounts, the registration of which were obtained using
    information that materially falsifies the identity of the actual registrant;

  5. is accomplished through the intentional transmission from any Internet Protocol
    address, the access to which was obtained through a media affiliate’s false
    representation of itself to be the registrant or the legitimate successor in interest to the
    registrant of such Internet Protocol addresses;

  6. uses any falsified or forged electronic mail transmission information or other routing
    information in any manner.
We very much look forward to working with all of our affiliated parties, advertisers and clients to ensure we provide the best possible service to all parties, especially the recipients of the messages we initiate.
