We are committed to preventing spam related abuse. This is why you may only use Vuepak to send Emails and SMS, text messages to people and entities that either:
Gave you written (including electronic) permission to message them, have not withdrawn that permission, and gave you that permission in the past 12 months.
Did not object to promotional content you sent them in the past 12 months.
Gave you their name and email address or mobile number in connection with a purchase, or negotiations to purchase, a product or service from you, have not opted out from receiving your messages, and either purchased something from you or negotiated a purchase from you in the past 12 months; or didn’t object to promotional content you sent them in the past 12 months.
If you send emails to a list and you get an unusual amount of SPAM complaints, ISPs will start blocking emails from your company. They may also ask Vuepak to shut down your account. So if you don't have proof that every recipient on your list opted-in to receive your emails, or otherwise meets the requirements listed above, then please don’t import the email addresses into Vuepak.
The following are some steps you can take to avoid accidentally becoming a spammer:
Sending your first campaign to an old list. Some recipients may not remember you, and they could report you for spamming. It is good to remind them who you are and how they got on your list.
If you are importing from a CRM, break your list into separate segments or interest groups so you can send relevant content to your customers. It is not recommended to just mix different lists together and send one mass email or text message to everyone at once.
If you are sending on behalf of clients, it is advised that you educate them about responsible email and text message marketing.
Before importing a list into Vuepak from your CRM or another database, read and understand our Terms and Conditions of Use. Remove any prospects or leads that did not request marketing messages from you or otherwise meet the requirements in our Terms. Even if you are sending marketing messages to customers that consented to receive your email, you are still required by law to allow them to opt out of your email marketing list. We recommend that you turn on that feature in your CRM tool.
In the event that you engage in any of the activities listed above, in our sole discretion, we reserve the right to terminate your access to or use of our products and services, disable your Vuepak account or access to our products and services, and remove all or a portion of your content, in each case at any time, with or without notice and without refund. We may, in our sole discretion, also report your activity to the applicable legal authorities or third parties for abuse or fraud prevention.
In addition, Vuepak reserves the right to prohibit the use of Vuepak's products or services by any company or site in its sole discretion.
As always, sending unsolicited commercial email is FORBIDDEN. See our Terms and Conditions of Use for details.
Vuepak reserves the right to change or modify this policy at any time. The practices listed above are provided as examples and should not be considered exhaustive.
Thank you for taking the time to read our Acceptable Use Policy. We sincerely hope you always have a positive experience with Vuepak.
