Anti-Spam Policy

Anti-Spam Policy

The document describes the principles jointly referred to as the anti-spam policy applied by this website and its website’s network used to send unsolicited commercial information. GetResponse has a zero-tolerance policy on sending this type of message.

By subscribing to use our online marketing and related services (the “Service”), you (“User” or “you”) agree not to use the Service to send unsolicited email in any form (“Spam“), that you will comply with this Anti-Spam Policy (the “Policy”), and that your use of the Service is subject to the terms of this Policy.

I. Legal Requirements

In addition to complying with the terms of this Policy, Users must comply with all legal requirements for commercial email service providers in the country of residence of the User and its Contacts, and the following to the extent applicable (each as amended or superseded and in effect): the Directive 2000/31/EC of the European Parliament and Council of 8 June 2000 on certain legal aspects of information society services, in particular, electronic commerce, in the Internal Market (“Directive on Electronic Commerce”), the Directive 2002/58/EC of the European Parliament and Council of 12 July 2002, concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector (“Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications”), Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC and CAN SPAM Act of 2003, along with other applicable laws on privacy and electronic communication.  You are solely responsible for familiarizing yourself with applicable legal requirements and ensuring you fully comply.

II. What Is Spam?

Spam, also known as junk mail, is unsolicited commercial email messages, especially (but not only) bulk email messages. “Unsolicited” means that the recipient has not provided verifiable permission for the message to be sent. “Bulk” means that the message is sent as part of a more extensive collection of messages with substantively identical content. The term “spamming” refers to transmitting, distributing or delivering any unsolicited commercial e-mail correspondence, especially in mass quantities, through electronic communication.

III. Verification

Subscribers can be added to the database in multiple ways. Email addresses may be imported, added via API calls, iPhone, or manually added to the mailing list. In such cases, the User must have their subscriber’s permission to process their data. It is prohibited to send messages to any person who has not expressed their consent to receive such information from the User. We would like to note that the subscriber’s consent may not be presumed or inferred from the statements of other content. In addition, subscribers may withdraw their consent at any time.

We will send a new subscriber a message confirming their interest in receiving information from the User. Users may request to disable the confirmation for email and web subscriptions.

We  “confirmed opt-in” to all Users. This efficiently prevents spam complaints and makes the list much more responsive, as subscribers receive the expected information. At the User’s request, we may send the Contact a message to confirm his interest in receiving information from the User. The confirmation email may be customized so that recipients can easily recognize to which list they subscribe.


IV. Withdrawal of Consent – “unsubscribe” link

Each message sent shall contain an unsubscribe link. The link automatically updates the mailing list to ensure that a Subscriber who has opted out will not be sent any further mailings from that Account.

Once a Contact has opted out, the User must not send them further messages or sell or transfer their email addresses, even as a mailing list.
