General eNewsletter Rules and Guidelines
Our eNewsletter system has been developed to enable you to communicate with email subscribers that have opted-in (i.e. expressly given their permission) to receive information from your Company. You may not use the eNewsletter service for the purpose of sending unsolicited email, or “Spam”. Total Website NZ Ltd respects anti-Spam laws and asks you to act accordingly. You may not use the eNewsletter service for purposes of breaking the law. You must follow any posted guidelines regarding content and commercial activity limitations. All email addresses that you use must be solely derived from permission based lists. The eNewsletter service may not be used to send eNewsletters to individuals that have not opted-in to receive information via email from your company.
All eNewsletters sent out must comply with all relevant federal and state laws and all content must not violate any federal, state law, code, or regulation, whether criminal or civil in nature.
All eNewsletter must comply with the following:
Total Website NZ Ltd’s eNewsletter service gives its users all the tools necessary to build and maintain an opt-in email list. Our system allows you to import existing lists of email addresses. The email addresses that are imported must have opted in to receive messages from your company. These features make it easy for users to build and use lists of opt-in subscribers and eliminate the need to send unsolicited emails. Therefore, in the event that a complaint is received or an instance reported of an unsolicited email message sent by your company using our Service, Total Website NZ Ltd will investigate claims of unsolicited email messages sent using the Service. If Total Website NZ Ltd determines that a user is employing the service to send emails to recipients who have not opted in or recipients that have unsubscribed on a prior occasion, the account will be immediately terminated.
Special Email Provisions
Adding New Members: You will use a “single opt-in” or “double opt-in” (signup plus confirmation) subscription method for all new list members. For the purpose of this Agreement, a “double opt-in” method shall mean that when you add a new member’s email address to the list, that email address shall not be activated unless and until the new member receives a single confirmation email from you requesting the member’s consent to be added to the list, and Total Website NZ Ltd receives from the new member a confirmation action (such as a confirming email from the new member’s email address) approving such action. The confirmation email sent by the Customer to new members may not include advertising or calls-to-action other than an appeal to confirm the member’s subscription.
Importing Members: You may only import members previously obtained by you who were confirmed using the “single opt-in” or “double opt-in” (recommended) procedures described above. You may not import opt-out members directly into your list under any circumstances. You MAY NOT import members from co-registered or purchased sources, regardless of the confirmation status of said members.
One-Time Mailings: You may not use the Service for one-time mailing to a list of members after which you substantially delete the membership and create a new list. Your membership must be a static, permanent list to which you add or delete new members and/or members subscribe or unsubscribe themselves in the ordinary course. Failure to comply with any provisions of this or any other Policy will result in an immediate termination of service, and no monies paid to Total Website NZ Ltd will be returned. You agree to hold Total Website NZ Ltd, any assigns or partners, officers and staff, harmless and defend from any and all civil actions relating to your use or abuse of any Total Website NZ Ltd product or service.
