Master Agreement | Service Level Agreement | Acceptable Use Policy
To reach its goal of providing the best business class web services to
our clients, Medicine Wheel Website Design, Inc. offers users a full
range of Internet services. Abuse of these services is considered a
violation of our Acceptable Use Policy. One of the most serious abuses
is using your account to send unsolicited commercial e-mail, otherwise
known as "SPAM". The following are examples of SPAM and are blatantly
contrary to our Service Agreement.
e-mail: Defined as sending unsolicited commercial e-mails.
This is prohibited. You are not permitted to use your Medicine Wheel
Website Design, Inc account or e-mail alias/account of your Virtual
Server to send unsolicited commercial e-mail. Using an e-mail address
hosted anywhere on Medicine Wheel Website Design, Inc servers to
collect responses from unsolicited commercial e-mail is prohibited.
This also includes using third party e-mail accounts or servers
including free ones to promote ("spamvertise") your Medicine Wheel
Website Design, Inc based Virtual Server and redirectors for the same
Mail Bombing: Defined as sending large volumes
of unsolicited e-mail to individuals from your Medicine Wheel Website
Design, Inc based Virtual Server account. This is strictly prohibited.
Harassment: Defined as sending threatening or
harassing e-mail after being requested to stop, is prohibited.
Extremely threatening or harassing e-mail never is allowed.
Inappropriate use of Mailing Lists
Mailing Lists: Mass mailing to purchased mailing lists is not
allowed. We allow only opt-in mailing lists. To comply with our no-SPAM
policy, the recipients on your mailing list must have specifically
requested (subscribed) to receive mail from you on this topic.
Purchased or inherited lists are, by definition, NOT opt-in. Similarly;
you could not start a list about horses and then post to it about
boats. Opt-in list mailings must include instructions to unsubscribe
(opt-out) in every message.
Inappropriate Newsgroup Activities
Spamming: Defined as excessive cross-posting, or posting the
same article to several newsgroups. This is prohibited. Generally
accepted standards allow no more than 15 newsgroups, or cross-postings,
for a single article or substantially similar articles. Such articles
may be canceled. You are not allowed to use your Medicine Wheel Website
Design, Inc based mail facilities to SPAM the newsgroups. You are
prohibited from cross-post or post-off-topic subjects in the Medicine
Wheel Website Design, Inc support forums.
Off topic or inappropriate postings: There is no
restriction on content, except as defined by each newsgroup. Continued
posting of off-topic articles is prohibited. Please note that
commercial advertisements are off-topic in the vast majority of
We take a very dim view of SPAM. It is one of the most annoying things
encountered on the Internet. If a Medicine Wheel Website Design, Inc
customer is found to be spamming we will take action immediately. If we
find that you have violated our No-SPAM Policy, we will disable your
account and report you and the incident to the proper local, state, and
federal authorities if necessary.
We are not
attempting to censor, nor are we attempting to curtail the business of
our customers. But as a whole, SPAMming hurts our members and us more
than it helps the spammer. Do yourself, and us, a favor. DON'T DO IT.
