Email and Prohibited Content

You acknowledge and agree that you will not hide, disable, or remove or attempt to hide, disable, or remove the opt-out link from the email invitation.

Permission Lists Only
Provider has a zero-tolerance spam policy. Subscriber accounts will be terminated for sending unsolicited email messages. This means that all recipients sent to must have opted in to receiving communications from you, the sender. You can only use Provider to send emails to lists of people that gave you permission to email them. If you don't have proof that each recipient on your list opted in for your emails, don't import them into Provider.
1. Bans false of misleading header information. Requires valid "reply" and "from" addresses. These must be accurate and identify the person who initiated the email.
2. Prohibits deceptive subject lines. The subject line cannot mislead the recipient about the contents or subject matter of the message.
3. Requires the email to provide recipients with a valid opt-out method. You must provide a return email address or another Internet-based response mechanism that allows a recipient to ask you not to send future email messages to that email address, and you must honor the requests.
Any opt-out mechanism you offer must be able to process opt-out requests for at least thirty days after you send your commercial email. When you receive an opt-out request, the law gives you ten business days to stop sending email to the requestor's email address. You cannot help another entity send email to that address, or have another entity send email on your behalf to that address. Finally, it's illegal for you to sell or transfer the email addresses of people who choose not to receive your email, even in the form of a mailing list, unless you transfer the addresses so another entity can comply with the law.
4. Include physical mailing address. You message must contain clear and conspicuous notice that the message is an advertisement or solicitation and that the recipient can opt out of receiving more commercial email from you. It also must include your valid physical postal address.
If you suspect that Provider has been used to send spam, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate accordingly.
