What is Spam?
Spam/Junk Email refers to commercial mail that is unwanted or not needed by recipients, especially when sent in bulk. The mail is classified as unwanted because the recipient has not given permission for the mail, and permission could be in the form of a verification message.
Bulk means that the email is sent to a large number of recipients. Spamming refers to any kind of transmission, distribution, or delivery of unwanted commercial emails in large numbers through electronic communication media.
An electronic message is categorized as 'spam' if:
- The recipient's personal identity is irrelevant to the content inside the mail because the mail is also sent to many other recipients.
- The recipient has not verified any actions related to driving the sending of mails explicitly.
Email marketing tools like mailtarget have the ability to secure a white-listed status as an Internet Service Provider. Therefore, we take the issue of spam seriously.
There are certain things that are not allowed in mailtarget related to email lists:
- The delivery of emails to recipients who have not given you permission to send emails.
- Using email lists obtained from buying, renting, leasing, or any means obtained from third parties.
- Using email lists obtained from public data available online. Just because someone publishes their email address does not mean they want to receive email from you.
- If you have not made contact with them within the last 2 years, the email list should not be used. This is because these people may have changed their email address and, most importantly, they will not remember giving you permission to send email.
- If there is something you want to do but are unsure whether it is allowed or not, please contact us. We will be happy to assist you.
Do not use mailtarget to send anything offensive, advertise or promote illegal items, or engage in any form of violence.
You are not allowed to send emails in the form of:
- Offensive content.
