Anti-Spam Policy


(1)                What is spam?


In the context of electronic messaging, “spam” means [unsolicited bulk messages / unsolicited, bulk or indiscriminate messages][1], typically sent for a commercial purpose.


We have a zero-tolerance spam policy.


(2)                Credit


This document was created using an SEQ Legal template.


(3)                Spam filtering


Our messaging systems automatically scan all incoming email [and other] messages and filter out messages that appear to be spam.


We may also report incoming email as spam. This can result in IP addresses and domain names being blacklisted.


(4)                Spam filtering issues


No message filtering system is 100% accurate, and from time to time legitimate messages will be filtered out by our systems.


If you believe this has happened to a message you have sent, please advise the message recipient by another means.


You can reduce the risk of a message being caught by the spam filters by:


[(a)            sending the message in plain text (instead of, or in addition to, HTML);


(b)             removing any message attachments;


(c)              avoiding the terminology and text styling typically used by spammers; and


(d)             ensuring that your messages are scanned for malware before dispatch.]


(5)                User spam


We provide a facility that enables users to send [email messages / private messages] to others.


Users must not use this facility to send spam, whether or not for a commercial purpose.


Full terms and conditions concerning the use of the facility are set out in [document].[2]
