For more info about spamming, visit http://www.abuse.net
Bless Marketing Group, Inc takes a no tolerance approach when dealing with spam and other types of UCE (unsolicited commercial e-mail).
Bless Marketing Group, Inc defines spam as any type of unsolicited email used for any purpose. This includes, but is not limited to:
A. Using a non-existent return email address when sending commercial solicitations.
B. Mail-bombing (sending numerous messages to the same user).
C. Subscribing someone else to a mailing list without that person’s permission.
D. Posting the same article to multiple newsgroups.
E. Using another network to send spam that relates in any way to Bless Marketing Group, Inc or any site hosted by Bless Marketing Group, Inc (including your site).
F. Sending bulk e-mail without providing a way for the receiver to unsubscribe.
If you wish to have a mailing list then you must make sure that it is a Double Opt-in format. This means that when someone subscribes to your list by giving you their email address, you will need to send them an email that tells them that you have received a request to have them subscribed to your list. This email should not be an advertisement or it could be considered spam. It should just state that you have received a request to subscribe them to your list. You will also need to tell them in the email that if they want to be subscribed that they will need to reply to that email with “subscribe” in the subject. If they delete the email or just do not reply with “subscribe” in the subject, they will not be subscribed to the list and they will not receive any further emails. If you have any questions about this Double Opt-in format, please contact [email protected].
If a client is found in violation of the above no-spam policy, the offending account may be terminated without notice and no refund will be issued. There may also be a fee (payable in U.S. funds) charged to the client for each complaint received by Bless Marketing Group, Inc.
Adult Content Policy
No Adult Content Policy…
Because the Internet is a global communication tool, and we have clients from many countries of the world it is difficult to dictate what is considered “adult material”. However, it is not our function to discriminate against those who choose to utilize adult content or adult related material. This being said, there are still several reasons why Bless Marketing Group, Inc has been forced to create its no adult sites policy for its virtual server users.
What does Bless Marketing Group, Inc consider as “Adult Material?”
Any site whose revenue is gained in part or whole from its adult content.
Photos or videos showing frontal nudity on either men or women for non-scientific or non-artistic purposes.
Revenue-generating hyperlinks to sites who meet the criteria of #1 or #2.
What does Bless Marketing Group, Inc NOT consider as “Adult Material?”
Any site whose revenue is NOT gained in part or whole from its adult content.
Photos or videos showing frontal nudity on either men or women for scientific or artistic purposes.
Lingerie or intimate clothing businesses including those that sell adult novelties or videos.
In all cases, Bless Marketing Group, Inc will be the sole arbiter in determining what is a violation of this policy.
Bandwidth and Resources Bless Marketing Group, Inc’s hosting is a “shared-resource” environment. This being said, consider that an average “adult site” gets more hits than 100 standard web sites. Some of the smaller adult sites get around 5 GB of transfer per day. With these types of resources being used, our servers would be severely slowed. On top of that we would be forced to raise our prices to pay for the bandwidth. We strive to keep our servers fast and our bandwidth clear.
Unless you run adult sites, our guess is (and research has proved) that most businesses don’t want to share space with pornography-related sites. In general, a “professional image” is what drives business’s to the web. To have your site affiliated with, or, on the same servers as adult sites could lead potential prospects away from your business.
Bless Marketing Group, Inc reserves the right to decide what it considers “adult content”, “adult material”, “sexually explicit”, or “sexually related”. Let us know if you are unsure of the approval of your site before placing an order.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason not prohibited by law. Also we reserve the right to terminate service to any customer for any reason not prohibited by law.
Any deliberate attempt to cause damage to Bless Marketing Group, Inc or any other Internet servers will result in immediate account deactivation without prior notice. No refund is given in this case.
