You agree to Sogma Anti-Spam Policy as a precondition to use of Sogma service. Sogma may be used only for permission-based email marketing. If we discover that you are sending emails to people without their permission, your Sogma account will be terminated immediately.
By ‘permission’ we mean express and provable permission granted to you. A permission to send commercial emails may be through:
Submission of email address as part of downloading anything from your website or ordering a product or service from you.
Subscription to an email newsletter by filling a form on your website.
Someone has provided you with the email address as part of participation in any contest, event or survey conducted by you and you have informed him/her that you would be sending them marketing emails.
Any instance where a person completing a form has checked an opt-in checkbox indicating their willingness to be contacted by you through email, provided the checkbox is unchecked by default and you have informed such person that the nature of the emails will be commercial.
Any business card given by a person who has expressed his/her willingness to receive emails of a commercial nature. Willingness to receive emails of a commercial nature will be presumed where the business card was dropped in your booth at a tradeshow.
In particular, you shall strictly comply with the following rules:
You should have explicit permission to contact the recipient on the subject of your email. You shall maintain sufficient proof of the fact that you have received permission from all recipients of emails sent by you through Sogma.
You shall not import or send emails to email addresses that you have bought, loaned, rented or in any way acquired from a third party, irrespective of any claim about quality or permission, while using Sogma. You shall also refrain from importing into your Sogma account or sending mails to email addresses you have collected from other websites.
You shall ensure that the routing and header information including your emails “From” and “To,” the originating domain name and email address are true and accurate.
You shall not use subject lines that mislead the recipient about the contents or subject matter of the message.
You shall provide a one-click unsubscribe option in all emails and refrain from sending emails to persons who have opted out or un-subscribed from your mailing list.
You shall include your valid physical postal address in all emails sent through Sogma.
You shall include a conspicuous notice in all marketing emails that the message is an advertisement or solicitation and that the recipient can opt out of receiving more commercial emails from you.
We may, at any time, require you to prove that you have express permission to send emails to email addresses you have imported to your Sogma irrespective of whether you have sent marketing emails to such email addresses.
Your use of Sogma services signifies your unconditional acceptance of this Anti-Spam Policy.
