Acceptable Email Use Policy:

To comply with the US Federal Law and CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, strictly enforces the following anti-spam policy.

As directed by the Act, the FTC issued its final Rule to prescribe a mark to be included in all commercial electronic mail that contains sexually oriented materials. Effective immediately all affiliates must comply with the act when promoting affiliate program.

Unsolicited Commercial Email

Per the statute's requirement, the "opt-out" mechanism must be available for at least 30 days after the transmission of the original e-mail and you or any party working on your behalf must honor any such opt-out requests within 10 days of the request.
  • You may not sell or otherwise transfer to anyone else the e-mail addresses of those persons choosing not to receive additional e-mails.
