Anti-Junk Mail Policy
McCartney Multimedia and our iFanz product has a no tolerance spam policy. Our iFanz customer support engine actively monitors large import lists and emails going to a large number of subscribers. Any customer found to be using our servers or services for sending unsolicited emails or "spam" will have their account deactivated without notice. If you know of or suspect any violators, please notify us immediately at email@example.com
Every email contains a mandatory auto-unsubscribe link. If the paragraph containing this link is removed or de-activated in any way, McCartney Multimedia will terminate the customer's account.
What is Spam?
Spam is unsolicited email also known as junk mail or UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email.) By sending email to only to those who have opted in and requested to receive it, you are following accepted permission-based email guidelines.
How McCartney Multimedia and our iFanz product protects you from sending spam
iFanz is a permission-based email-marketing tool that follows the strictest permission-based philosophies:
Verification - iFanz automatically sends all of your new subscribers an email confirming their interest in receiving emails from you. They must click on the link provided in the email and enter their email address to confirm that you are allowed to distribute information to that address. You will not be able to view or download their data until that has taken place.
Remove requests - Every email generated from the iFanz system automatically contains an unsubscribe link which automatically updates the individual list within your account to avoid the chance of sending unwanted emails to visitors who have unsubscribed. If an individual wishes to be removed from MULTIPLE lists within the system, they must contact firstname.lastname@example.org and name the lists they wish to be removed from, as well as all email addresses and aliases.
Isn't there a law restricting junk e-mail? -Yes, but state and international spam statutes vary so it is important to conform to the strictest standards. Many states have spam statutes, and they all differ; each state has its own definition of unsolicited commercial email. Additionally, there are various federal agencies keeping track of spam including the Federal Trade Commission.
How to protect yourself from Spam / Illegal e-mail :
1. Are you importing a purchased / borrowed / downloaded list of ANY kind?
2. Are you sending to non-specific addresses such as: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or other generic addresses ?
3. Are you sending to distribution lists or mailing lists which send indirectly to a variety of email addresses?
4. Are you mailing to anyone who has not explicitly agreed to join your mailing list?
5. Have you changed your originating address or transmission path information to hide your real address?
6. Have you used a third party email address or domain name without their permission?
7. Does your email's subject line contain false or misleading information?
8. Does your email fail to provide a working link to unsubscribe?
9. Is the person you are writing to under the age of 13?
If you have answered YES to ANY of the above questions you will likely be labeled a SPAMMER. In the case of users under the age of 13, please visit the Children's Online Privacy Act (www.copacommission.org)For more information visit The Coalition Against Unsolicited Email (www.cauce.org) or contact McCartney Multimedia and our iFanz product Customer Support (firstname.lastname@example.org)
