WEB SITES AND PRODUCTS
Voodoo has a zero tolerance spam policy. Voodoo's customer support actively monitors large import lists and emails sent to a large number of contacts. Any customer found to be using Voodoo for spam will have their account immediately terminated and will not be allowed to use the product. If you know of or suspect any violators, please notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every email sent from Voodoo contains the primary elements required to keep commercial email anti-Spam compliant: your physical address, a notice that the email is an advertisement, plus mandatory Unsubscribe and Spam Abuse links. If these elements or links are removed or de-activated in any way, Voodoo will terminate a customer's account immediately.
What is Spam?
Spam is unsolicited email also known as UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email). You are allowed to send email only to those who have given their permission to receive it. By law, you must always follow accepted permission-based email guidelines and get the direct consent of recipients and/or have a pre-existing business relationship with them.
Is there a law against sending Spam?
Yes. The federal anti-spam law went into effect on January 1st, 2004 and preempts all state laws. While this new law can not stop spam, it does make most spam illegal and ultimately more risky to spammers. The law is specific about requirements to send commercial email and empowers the federal government to enforce the law. The penalties can include a fine and/or imprisonment for up to 5 years.
What constitutes consent?
The recipient of your email has been clearly and fully notified about the collection and use of his email address and has consented prior to such collection and use. This is often called informed consent.
What constitutes a pre-existing business relationship?
The recipient of your email has made a purchase, requested information, responded to a questionnaire or a survey, or had offline contact with you.
Voodoo’s permission-based philosophy:
Don’t be a Spammer: Follow these rules!
