The term "Spam" is internet slang that refers to unsolicited commercial, unanticipated, irrelevant e-mail sent in bulk or to send a singular message repeatedly to a singular individual or entity over the internet to any recipient with whom you do not have a personal or professional relationship. It is the e-mail you did not ask to get and it is usually being sent in bulk in an attempt to force the message on people or entities who would not otherwise choose to receive it.
Chances are that you already might know "Spam" is bad, and as an e-mail recipient, you know it when you see it. Is is important that you as an e-mail sender know what "Spam" is. We would hate to see you make the mistake of spamming anyone with your e-mail marketing campaign.
Global Business Portal strictly prohibits any form of spamming with the intent to acquire referrals and maintains a zero tolerance policy for use of its network or services in any manner associated with the transmission, distribution or delivery of any bulk e-mail, including unsolicited bulk or unsolicited commercial e-mail, or the sending, assisting, or commissioning the transmission of commercial e-mail that does not comply with the U.S. CAN-SPAM act of 2003 ("SPAM").
Before adding new recipients to your contact list, you need to ensure that you have the proper permission for each and every recipient on your list. Why? Without proper permission, you run the risk of getting reported for spam, or worse, being sued or facing monetary penalties under anti-spam laws. The basic principle of permission is that you can only e-mail people who have explicitly given you permission to contact them, and only about subjects that they have specifically agreed to. Failure to ensure that all your recipients fall into the "Acceptable Use" category will result in immediate termination of your account.
It is your obligation to ensure that e-mail sent by you, or on your behalf, does not violate the U.S. CAN-SPAM act of 2003. We assume SPAM complaints are valid unless we are provided with credible information to the contrary.
