Business Funding Engine.com (B.F.E.) is committed to permission-based email marketing practices, and as a result has established this no-tolerance Anti-Spam Policy.
1. 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.
2. Preventing Spam
Affiliates of Business Funding Engine.com products and services have agreed to comply with this Anti-Spam Policy. Specifically, each affiliate agrees not to market B.F.E. products or services via unsolicited email or bulk email. B.F.E. 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.
Purchased Mailing Lists – Mass mailings to purchased email lists are not allowed. B.F.E. only allows opt-in mailing lists. Purchased or inherited lists are by definition not opt-in. Similarly, you cannot use an email list relating to particular subject matter, and then use it for an unrelated topic.
3. Laws Restricting Spam
Spam laws vary from state to state, and from country to country. The B.F.E. 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 any of these previously mentioned activities.
4. Questions to Ask Yourself
To help in establishing whether you are participating in activities constituting spam, ask yourself the following questions:
(a) Are you sending email to non-specific addresses, such as [email protected] or [email protected]?
(b) Have you deliberately falsified your transmission path information or originating address?
(c) Are you sending email to mailing lists or distribution lists, which then send indirectly to various other email addresses?
(d) Have you imported for use a purchased list of any type?
(e) Are you continuing to mail to anyone who has asked to be deleted from your mailing list?
(f) Does your email not provide a fully functioning link to unsubscribe?
(g) Does you email subject line contain false or misleading information?
(h) Have you used a third party’s email address or domain name without the party’s consent?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, you are likely involved in spam activities.
5. Measures to Enforce the Anti-Spam Policy
Any Business Funding Engine.com affiliate found to be selling B.F.E. products or services with spamming methods will, at B.F.E.’s discretion, be immediately cut off and terminated as an affiliate.
Business Funding Engine.com does not attempt to censor any content, nor to curtail the business of its affiliates. However, spam activities do not fall within uses authorized by B.F.E., and will not be tolerated.
