We are committed to following permission based email marketing practices, and have established our anti-spam policy to demonstrate our intolerance to unsolicited spam, and to educate our affiliates and sponsoring partners as to the acceptable use of our marketing materials and promotional tools.
What is Spam?
Spam is commercial email or unsolicited bulk email, including “junk mail”, which has not been requested by the recipient. It is intrusive and often irrelevant or offensive, and it wastes valuable resources. Spam messages are the opposite of permission-based email, which are normally anticipated, personal, relevant and/or associated with a pre-existing business or personal relationship. Inappropriate newsgroup activities, consisting of excessive posting of the same materials to several newsgroups, are also deemed to be spam.
Specifically, each customer agrees not to use the Be1stOnline products to send unsolicited email or bulk email, whether or not for commercial purposes.
Be1stOnline reserves the right to determine in its sole discretion what constitutes actionable spam, as well as what measures are necessary in response to such spam activities.
Be1stOnline has developed its Internet marketing tools to incorporate a strict permission-based philosophy. This anti-spam philosophy is implemented through the following:
(b) Unsubscription – Each email created using Be1stOnline products contains an “unsubscribe link”. If our web site visitors use the link to request that they be unsubscribed, our subscriber lists will automatically be adjusted to eliminate the prospect of sending unwanted email to such persons.
Additionally, each person on our subscriber list has the option of unsubscribing through a web-based method provided on the Be1stOnline web site.
(c) Purchased Mailing Lists - Mass mailings to purchased email lists are not allowed. Be1stOnline only allows opt-in mailing lists. Purchased or inherited lists are by definition not opt-in.
Laws Restricting Spam
Spam laws vary from state to state, and from country to country. This Be1stOnline Anti-Spam Policy has been developed to conform to the highest commercially reasonable standards. As a result, and without limiting the general prohibitions against all spam activities, the following are expressly prohibited:
(a) Use of false headers, or other false information, to identify the point of origin or the transmission path of the email, or to hide the true origin of the email sender,
(b) Unauthorized use of a third party’s Internet domain name without the permission of such third party, to make it appear that the third party was the point of origin of the email,
(c) Use of any false or misleading information in the subject line of the email, and
(d) Assisting any person in using the products or services of Be1stOnline for any of these previously mentioned activities.
If you believe that you have received spam from or through Be1stOnline’s facilities, please send a complaint from your email account along with the unsolicited email, with completed header, to abuse@Be1stOnline.com
. Please provide any other information that you believe may help us in our investigation.
Be1stOnline does not investigate or take any action based on “anonymous” spam complaints.
