Suited Connector, LLC works hard to support responsible commerce on the Internet – and these efforts include doing everything we can to combat “spam” – a slang term that refers to the sending of unsolicited email, instant messaging or other communication to a large group of people at once. “Spam” variations can include off-topic, promotional messages on bulletin boards, guestbooks, Usenet newsgroups, or chat rooms.
Spam is strictly against policies and Terms of Service, and will result in the immediate disablement of any partners who are found to have used spam in conjunction with their Suited Connector, LLC advertising agreements.
The following policy dictates in specific terms what is considered acceptable use of bulk email/messaging by Suited Connector, LLC:
Mailing list subscriber information must include the date and time that the subscription was confirmed, as well as the IP address of the subscriber at the time of the confirmation. The user must be able to present this information at Suited Connector, LLC’s request.
Lists cannot be procured from outside parties unless the email sender has procured a list from an organization that sells or otherwise shares email distribution lists, and all of the following conditions are met:
- Records are kept of the date, time, IP address, and form location where the subscribing user signed up from.
- Lists procured from outside parties must have been consistently handled in a manner comparable to Suited Connector, LLC policies.
- Users cannot populate lists with addresses obtained for a substantially different purpose than was originally disclosed to the user.
- Mailing Practices
- Preferred partners/vendors must not modify the headers of any message in such a way that purposefully obfuscates the origin of the message.
Undeliverable addresses must be removed from all future mailings after no more than 5 bounces.
Preferred partners/vendors are responsible for the practices of any affiliate program members they solicit the help of, as if they were hiring an outside advertising agency.
Preferred partners/vendors using either outside advertising companies or 3rd party mailing programs must abide by the same policies and practices as those using Suited Connector’s own bulk mailing list tools.
All mailings must provide clear and simple to follow instructions for opting-out of future mailings, and all reasonable attempts must be made to facilitate the removal of a mailing list subscriber at their request.
