We understand that spam may not be against the law in your state, however, unsolicited email is against our acceptable usage policy. This is a very serious issue, as other ISP's can block our servers, which could affect every user at MaximumASP. A second offense can meet with immediate termination of services without prior notification.

For clarification, "Unsolicited email" is defined as any email sent to a recipient who did not DIRECTLY "subscribe" to your list. Also, these subscribers MUST have a legitimate way to "unsubscribe" from your list.
If you have purchased a mailing list from a third party or affiliate and you are sending email to their subscribers, this would still be considered unsolicited email, since they have not directly subscribed to your list. We understand that a user may still complain about spam even if they HAVE subscribed to your list, and complaints like this will be handled on a case by case basis.

Note: getting a "hotmail" or similar email address to advertise your web site, or a site that links to another web site, or services is NOT a spam workaround. The "spam" police know who's services are advertised, and the complaint will still be held against you.

Note 2: YOU are responsible for your customers sending spam. For example, if you manage a web site for your customer, and your customer sends unsolicited emails, you will be contacted and the domain will be terminated from service.
