LICENSEE IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY AND NATURE OF THE INFORMATION DISTRIBUTED FROM YOUR ACCOUNT. Definition of Spam and Anti-Spam Policy and Can Spam Act of 2011
Spam is unsolicited e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups. Spammers take resources away from users and from service suppliers. By sending email only to those who have requested to receive it, you are following accepted permission-based email guidelines.
Licensor has a zero tolerance spam policy when using the MeshWorks platform IN ANY MANNER. Any Account Holder found to be using MeshWorks Services in violation of the Can Spam Act of 2011 will have their primary account immediately terminated and will forfeit any security deposits or unused payments for Services. If you know of or suspect any violators, please notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org Licensee is responsible for the legality of all of email lists, including: (1) any imported opt-in lists, (2) any business relationship lists (recipient has made a purchase, requested information, responded to a survey, or had offline contact with you), (3) any bought or rented legitimate opt-in list.
9. Federal Law Compliance
The Federal anti-spam law went into effect on January 1st, 2004 and preempts all state laws. The CAN-SPAM is an opt-out law; it makes most spam illegal and ultimately less attractive to spammers. If a recipient wants to opt-out, you must stop sending e-mails or be subject to severe penalties. (Penalties can include a fine and/or imprisonment for up to 5 years). The Federal anti-spam law: (1) prohibits fraudulent or deceptive subject lines, headers, return addresses, etc. (2) makes it illegal to send e-mails to e-mail addresses that have been harvested from websites, (3) criminalizes sending sexually-oriented e-mails without clear markings, (4) requires inclusion of a postal mailing address in the message, (5) includes both criminal and civil penalties and allows suits by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), State Attorneys General, and Internet Service Providers. Licensee agrees that if you or one or more recipients of any of your MeshWorks messages fall under the jurisdiction of the United States that you adhere to the CAN- SPAM Act of 2011. Unlimited MeshWorks Business Composer Services are provided primarily for business communications of less than 50,000 message views per month per individual seat license. Licensor reserves the right to review each user account that exceeds 50,000 message reads per month to consider compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act.
10. Authorized Resellers
Licensee acknowledges that Licensor may from time-to-time utilize or contract independent Resellers and/or Affiliates (the “Resellers”) for the purposes of marketing and selling the MeshWorks Products and Services. A Resellers ability to make the Products and Services available is derived from and limited to the terms of the agreement between Licensor and the Reseller. Services and/or support provided by the Reseller terminate if the agreement between the Licensor and the Reseller are terminated. If you have purchased this Product License through a Licensor approved Reseller and the Resellers agreement is terminated for any reason, your current service under this Agreement will continue uninterrupted for the term of the Agreement, so long as the Licensees account is in good standing as defined herein. Once the initial term of this agreement has been reach, the Licensee may be able to purchase the Services directly from the Licensor or from another authorized Reseller of the Products and Services as may be recommended by the Licensor.
