Anti-Spam Policy

What is "UCE or Spam" ?

If you have been online long enough, you've no doubt received a number of "junk" emails. Some take the shape of "Make Money Fast" schemes. Others promise exciting new products or services, often amounting to nothing more than scams asking you to send money to a random address. Still others simply occupy space in your mailbox, asking you to forward chain letters around the world or visit a particular Web site. 

In the Internet community, Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) is called Spam. And Spam is more than annoying to Internet users; it also seriously affects the efficiency of the network and servers through which mail is delivered. That's because Spammers take advantage of the low cost of email by sending hundreds of thousands or even millions of email solicitations at a time. Spam attacks consume large amounts of bandwidth, clog email boxes, and waste email readers´ time.

Fines will be imposed on accounts that violate the Anti-SPAM policies. (Please lick here for the list of fines)
