If the link is removed or de-activated in any way, IBEM.BIZ will terminate the customer's account.

What is Spam?

UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email) is the formal term for spam. This type of email is not requested by the recipient. Therefore, email sent only to those who have requested to receive it, follows accepted permission-based email guidelines.

What constitutes a Preexisting business relationship?

It is contact of some kind in the form of the recipient making a purchase, requesting information, responding to a questionnaire or a survey, or offline contact.

What constitutes consent?

Generally referred to as informed consent, the recipient of your email has been clearly and fully notified of the collection and use of his email address and has consented prior to such collection and use.

Isn't there a law against sending Spam?

The federal anti-spam law went into effect on January 1st, 2004 and preempts all state laws. While this new law will not stop spam, it does make most spam illegal and ultimately less attractive to spammers. The law is specific about requirements to send commercial email and empowers the federal government to enforce the law. The penalties can include a fine and/or imprisonment for up to 5 years.

How IBEM.BIZ protects you from sending spam

IBEM.BIZ is a permission-based email-marketing tool that follows the strictest permission-based philosophies:

. Communication - Your IBEM.BIZ registration page states why the site visitor's email address is being collected, how you plan to use their address, and that you are following the embedded privacy policy. Additionally, by accepting our license agreement you have agreed to use only permission-based lists and never to sell or rent your lists.
. Verification - All of your new contacts will automatically receive an email from IBEM.BIZ confirming their interest in receiving emails from you. Additionally, if your contact opts-out or unsubscribes, IBEM.BIZ automatically sends an email confirmation.
. Unsubscribe - Your contacts will always be allowed to opt-out of future emails through an unsubscribe link in every email generated from IBEM.BIZ. IBEM.BIZ automatically updates your contact lists to avoid sending unwanted emails to visitors who have unsubscribed.
. Identification - Your email header information is pre-set for you by IBEM.BIZ, and is always accurate. Your email's "From" address is verified and already accurately identifies you as the sender.
. Contact Information - all of your emails are pre-filled with your contact information including your physical address.

How to protect yourself from Spam:

Take the Spam Test
1. Are you importing a purchased list of ANY kind?
2. Are you sending to non-specific addresses such as:

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
or other general addresses.

3. Are you sending to distribution lists or mailing lists which send indirectly to a variety of email addresses?
4. Are you mailing to anyone who has not explicitly agreed to join your mailing list?
5. Have you falsified your originating address or transmission path information?
6. Have you used a third party email address or domain name without their permission?
7. Does your email's subject line contain false or misleading information?
8. Does your email fail to provide a working link to unsubscribe?
9. Are you failing to process any unsubscribe requests that come to you via a reply to your email within 10 days or the request?

If you have answered YES to ANY of the above questions you will likely be labeled a SPAMMER. For more information visit The Coalition Against Unsolicited Email (www.cauce.org) or contact IBEM.BIZ Customer Support ([email protected])
