5. Etiquette and
Policies (spam etc)
Spamming is the
sending of unsolicited e-mail, regardless of size or volume, to
persons the sender does not know or have prior consent to send the
message to. Using fictitious e-mail addresses @BIZLINE.com.pk or any
domain name hosted with BIZLINE is strictly forbidden.
Spamming also includes sending unsolicited advertisements to
numerous email addresses or newsgroups and/or generating a
significantly higher volume of outgoing email than a normal user. A
violation of this policy extends to clients who send unsolicited
e-mail from a domain name not affiliated or hosted with BIZLINE
but the mail message makes mention of a website hosted with
BIZLINE allows clients to send mailings to subscribers of
their own mailing list. Such mailings must have explicit
instructions to the recipient on how to remove his/her name from the
list, and all requests to do so must be honored immediately. Client
agrees not to send mailings to lists provided by an outside agency
or individual. Client further agrees not to provide mailing list
services to others. Due to the nature of a shared-server
environment, BIZLINE requests that mailing lists be sent
during non-peak hours, specifically between the hours of 1:00 am and
5:00 am, Central Time (U.S.A). BIZLINE reserves the right to
terminate a client's mailing program, whether provided by BIZLINE
or not, immediately and without notification to client if said list
causes a problem with the e-mail services of other clients.
BIZLINE also reserves the right to forbid a client from
utilizing any mail-sending program that jeopardizes the mail
services of other clients.
Due to the consumption of system resources and overloading of the
e-mail server, BIZLINE forbids the use of the "Gossamer
Links" program by any client.
Trolling, the posting of outrageous messages to generate numerous
responses, is also not allowed. Mailbombing, the sending of multiple
messages without significant new content to the same user and/or
subscribing someone else to a mailing list without that person's
permission, cross-posting articles to an excessive number of
newsgroups, or attempting without authorization to enter into a
secured computer system is strictly forbidden. BIZLINE
reserves the right to determine what constitutes abuse of this
policy. Clients whose accounts are found in violation of this policy
may, at the discretion of BIZLINE, have their account(s)
terminated without notice and are subject to a maximum $500
