Mass Mailings.  Weblinenet.com has a zero tolerance policy on SPAM, Junk E-mail or UCE.  Spam, Junk-mail and UCE are defined as: the sending of the same, or substantially similar, unsolicited electronic mail message, whether commercial or not, to more than one recipient. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested or invited the message. UCE also includes e-mail with forged headers, compromised mail server relays, and false contact information. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of the Weblinenet.com  servers and/or network. Violation of the above terms will result in one or all of the following: A warning from Weblinenet.com  personnel by E-Mail or Telephone. Removal of DNS for the advertised/originating site. Temporary shutdown of the website/server or a block on outgoing mail. Permanent disconnection of service.
 
SPAM and Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE): Weblinenet takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or SPAM over our network. Very simply this means that customers of Weblinenet may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in UCE. Customers of Weblinenet may not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is advertised by UCE from other networks. In addition, it is not acceptable to transmit bulk email through remote SOCKS, HTTP or other similar proxies who in turn make a SMTP (TCP port 25) connection to the destination mail servers. This technique may result in account suspension or termination. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service. In order to prevent unnecessary blacklisting due to spam we reserve the right to occasionally sample bulk email being sent from servers.
 
Repeat violation of the above terms will result in the following actions:

 
 
 
If your actions have caused Weblinenet.com  servers or IP Addresses to be placed on ANY blackhole lists and other mail filtering software systems used by ISP’s and Web Hosting companies around the world, you will be assessed a $1000 charge to your account and $150 per hour for administrative charges incurred to remove and protect our servers and/or IP Addresses. If you have further questions about our mass mailing policy, please send them to support@weblinenet.com .
 
 
Mailing Lists:  Our mass mailing rules also apply to mailing lists, list servs, or mailing services you may contract with.  Our policy is the following:  An acceptable mailing list will be focused at a target audience that has voluntarily signed up for your e-mail information or that has made their e-mail address available for distribution of information from you.  Your own list servs in which customers have signed up for in the past, is a valid mailing list.  If one of your members asks to be removed, please remove them as soon as feasibly possible. Internally created mailing lists are valid as long as your customers agree to receive the e-mail. Purchased mailing lists are generally a violation of the rules because you have not received authority from the recipient to send them an e-mail.  The final rule to all mailing lists is simple:  if your customers begin to send spam complaints to Weblinenet.com  about your e-mail, you will be bound to the terms of mass mailings listed above.
