Following the rules of permission marketing
The Email Marketing Service is a permission marketing and communication service, designed to facilitate email communication and interaction between your organisation and people who have expressed interest in receiving email correspondence from you. Your use of the Email Marketing Service carries a necessarily high standard of ethics and strict set of rules in order for both you and the Email Marketing Service provider to be compliant with UK, European and International laws – as well as all pertinent guidelines and industry best practices – pertaining to use of email as a marketing and communication tool.
With that in mind, you agree to send emails using the Email Marketing Service only to those recipients who have a clear relationship with you and/or your organisation or who have expressly indicated their desire to receive emails from you.
To receive emails from you, a recipient must meet the consent criteria set out in the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) including one of the following criteria:
> He or she has opted in to receive your emails, using a form that clearly indicates that by submitting his or her email address he or she will receive emails from you;
> He or she has a clear relationship with you, as (a) a member who pays dues to belong to your organisation, (b) a subscriber who pays a subscription fee to gain access to your organisation’s services, or (c) a customer who has purchased a good or service from you within the past eighteen months, in the course of which you have obtained that customer’s email address.
If any recipient, regardless of his or her prior opt-in status or relationship to you, has indicated a desire not to receive emails from you – either during or prior to your use of Email Marketing Service – you may not use the Email Marketing Service to email that recipient.
Evidence of permission
By using the Email Marketing Service to send emails to a recipient, you are representing to us that you have obtained direct permission to email that recipient. You must be able to provide evidence as to the origin of any email address with respect to how it was acquired and how permission was obtained. You agree to fulfill any requests for permission evidence by us to the best of your ability and in a timely manner, and you understand that any addresses for which you are unable to provide adequate information in a timely manner will be disallowed, along with the rest of the list(s) in which that address resides, should we deem it necessary and appropriate to disallow the entire list.
No rented/purchased or harvested addresses allowed
You may not use the Email Marketing Service in conjunction with email lists or addresses that have been purchased, rented or otherwise obtained from a third party, or which have been collected using a script or other harvesting method, or which have been obtained without the email address owner’s knowledge. Sending emails to any address or list obtained using one or more of these methods will result in the termination of your Email Marketing account, immediately and without notice. We may also restrict access to your account, immediately and without notice, should we have reason to suspect that email addresses being added or imported into your Email Marketing account fail to meet the permission criteria set forth in this Agreement.
Should any mailing sent through your Email Marketing account receive an unreasonable number of complaints from Internet Service Providers or email watchdog groups (with the Email Marketing Service provider having the right to determine what qualifies as unreasonable), we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account immediately. Furthermore, you will be responsible for paying all charges for use of the Service and any fines incurred by either us, or the Email Marketing Service provider as a direct result of one of your mailings, in cases where clear and direct evidence is presented to us or the Email Marketing Service provider by the fining organisation.
Clearly identifying the origin of your email, and its content
You also agree to ensure that email messages sent through your Email Marketing account are truthful and accurately identify the source of the message. In all emails, you agree to use subject lines that are in no way false or misleading as to the identity of the sending organisation or the nature of the content contained in the email. You also agree to include your organisation’s physical address in all campaigns.
Using the opt-out process
Allowing recipients of your emails to choose to stop receiving those emails is required by law. In order to ensure strict compliance, we require that you use the opt-out link and process provided with your email account and templates. You will in no way attempt to circumvent the opt-out process. Furthermore, you understand that some recipients may choose to ask you to opt them out instead of using the opt-out link provided. In such cases, you agree to unsubscribe any such recipient manually, by changing the member’s mailing status to “opt-out” using the tools provided inside your Email Marketing account, and to make sure any such subscriber has been opted out prior to your next mailing being sent, and within the amount of time as required by law.
Responsibility for account use and content
You are responsible for everything that happens in your Email Marketing account, including the email addresses that are added, imported and stored, as well as the content published, distributed or linked to from your email campaigns. You agree to take full responsibility for any and all content distributed through your Email Marketing account, and to abide by all pertinent copyright laws. Should we find reason to believe you have violated any laws in the course of your use of the Email Marketing Service, or plan to violate any law using the Email Marketing Service, we may suspend or cancel your account immediately and without warning.
Protecting your data and your privacy
We and the Email Marketing Service Provider agree to hold your account information, lists and data in strict confidence, and never to rent or sell your email addresses to any third party. The Email Marketing Service’s software is intended for use with directory information and not for use with any personally identifiable details beyond an email address. All data stored and collected is shared only with trusted 3rd party service providers who, like the Email Marketing Service providers, are listed on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List, and then only for the purpose of providing service or support to you as a customer (e.g. cloud infrastructure, CRM, secure billing). It is not shared, rented or sold to any 3rd party for their own use. The only other time we, or the Email Marketing Service provider will ever share ANY information related to your Email Marketing account with an outside organisation is if (a) the outside organisation is an agency empowered to require them to divulge your personal or account information pursuant to lawfully issued court order or other lawful process/requirement, (b) examples of your templates, campaigns or case studies are being highlighted and your permission has been obtained prior to the divulging of such information, or (c) reporting on the overall customer base and activity, in which case only general, aggregate (non-personally identifiable) information will be divulged.
In creating your Email Marketing account, you will create a username and a password that controls access to your account and all of the data stored within that account. The Email Marketing Service stores an encrypted version of your password for added security, but you understand and acknowledge that you are ultimately responsible for maintaining control of that username and password and ensuring its proper use by authorised personnel only.
