Spam is the unsolicited transmission of bulk e-mail and/or the posting of off-topic messages to Usenet newsgroups or other Internet lists, instant messaging systems and chat rooms. While Golf Mind Rx™ encourages members to share our program with others; the company does not condone any form of spamming. This includes:
- Unsolicited E-mail: An e-mail message sent to anyone with whom you do not have a personal or professional relationship, or who has not specifically requested information, is considered spamming.
- Newsgroups/Message Boards/Bulletin Boards: Golf Mind Rx™ anti-spamming policy expressly forbids posting to sites not related to business opportunities, and where information about our program is banned either by description or name. Misleading messages sent or posted to potential referrals are considered spamming. So are messages or posts unrelated to discussion topics from members.
- Chat Room Solicitations: Any and all solicitations posted in chat rooms or through instant messaging services are defined as spam.
- Non-Internet Spam: The distribution of printed materials on private property or where otherwise prohibited goes against Golf Mind Rx™ anti-spamming policy.
- Safeguard: Before posting any Golf Mind Rx™ material to a site or newsgroup, check its Terms of Service or FAQ's for specific rules. If you are not sure if these rules allow you to share the Golf Mind Rx™ message, check with spam@GolfMindRx.com before posting any information about our program.
THINGS A USER CAN DO TO PREVENT SPAM
- Upon verification, delete the e-mail account that is associated with spam.
- Add e-mail address to spam database (list available for public viewing).
- Respond to the complaint.
- Golf Mind Rx™ will terminate your membership if you SPAM and make you ineligible for any new membership.
Employ the following mechanisms to fight spam:
- Install an SMTP server, which prevents hackers from using our service to relay spam messages to people.
- Have an outgoing address limit to prevent spammers from using our service to send messages out to users. Limit addresses to 25 per message and 100 addresses per day. Once this sender reaches the address limit, s/he receives an error message.
- Have an Address Blocking feature that allows users the ability to prevent unwanted e-mails by controlling who can and cannot send the user e-mails. The user can choose to receive mail from addresses in their Address Book and from addresses to whom they have sent mail or the user can choose to block specified addresses.
- Have a list of known spammers that the user can opt to have blocked. This option is part of our Address Blocking feature.
- Users can send feedback informing Golf Mind Rx™ of known spammers which we will add to our list. If a person is reported as a spammer, we block their account automatically. Actual deletion happens after 30 days to guard against an erroneous deletion.
Spam is a critical issue impacting the entire Internet and not just Golf Mind Rx™ and their partners. The header information has been forged on most of the spam you see with Golf Mind Rx™. The messages usually do not originate from our mail service or pass through it. In addition, Golf Mind Rx™ is not involved but are victims of the spammer. Golf Mind Rx™ takes an aggressive approach in combating spammers. In addition, Golf Mind Rx™ provides its users with controls to block spammers. Golf Mind Rx™ is constantly looking to improve our anti-spamming services. Spammers may be subjected to state and federal penalties and other legal consequences under applicable law if they violate our anti-SPAM Policy. That is the bottom line; SPAM cannot and will not be tolerated. If you know of someone who has violated our Anti-SPAM
Policy, please contact us at spam@GolfMindRx.com. Please include a copy of the SPAM message and a brief explanation. Spam complaints that do not contain a copy of the SPAM message received, or complaints that simply state "Remove us from your lists" will be returned with requests for a copy of the e-mail about which the complaint is being raised. This is not meant to be rude or difficult. Golf Mind Rx™ needs this information to pursue your complaint, and cannot do so without it. Please help us end Internet spam.
