In this Anti-Spam Policy, "we" or "us" means Newsfile Corp. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, (collectively, "we" or "us") and "Web site" means newsfilecorp.com and filesec16.com.
This Anti-Spam Policy discloses how we use email to share information about our services and provide communication mechanisms for our clients. Newsfile Corp. abides by Canada's Anti-Spam Law (CASL) and therefore has a zero-tolerance spam policy. We only use email to share information about our services with those who have provided their express or implied consent to receive such communications.
Mailing Lists for News Dissemination
Newsfile allows you to create and manage lists of email addresses using our Compliance Management Portal ("CMP"). When submitting a news release for processing you may select one or more of these lists. On dissemination, our system will proceed to send a copy of the news release to all list recipients.
Email messages sent to a mailing list contain an "unsubscribe" link that allows recipients to remove themselves from your mailing lists. Should a recipient unsubscribe, they will be added to an email blacklist specific to your company, and will no longer receive your company's news releases via email from Newsfile Corp. We will remove an email from a company specific blacklist if presented with adequate proof the email was blacklisted in error, or the recipient wishes to return to the mailing list.
Email messages sent to a mailing list will clearly state you as the sending entity, in addition to clearly identifying Newsfile Corp. as the newswire service provider.
Mailing List Restrictions
Email lists created using your Newsfile Corp. account must have a valid 'Sender' email address defined. This address must be owned or managed by you.
All email recipients present in mailing lists defined by you must have opted in to, or otherwise validly consented to, receiving communications from you, the sender. If you don't have proof that each recipient on your list opted in for your emails, don't import them into Newsfile Corp. Client accounts may be terminated for sending unsolicited email messages.
We prohibit the use of harvested mailing lists. Newsfile Corp. will terminate accounts violating this prohibition.
We prohibit the use of third-party, purchased, or rented mailing lists unless you are able to provide proof that individuals on the list have opted-in to receiving emails of the type you will be sending them.
You must not send unsolicited mail to newsgroups, message boards, distribution lists, or email addresses.
You are responsible for ensuring that the mailing lists you create do not generate a number of spam complaints or bounce rates in excess of industry standards. If Newsfile Corp. determines that your level of spam complaints or bounce rate is higher than industry standards, Newsfile Corp., at its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your use of its website and services. If you receive low response rates, high abuse rates or high bounce rates, we may request additional information regarding your mailing lists to investigate and attempt to resolve the problem, or in some cases we may suspend or remove email privileges on your account.
Your Consent and Changes
Your use of Newsfile Corp.'s website and services is subject to this policy. If you are found to be in violation of our policies at any time, as determined by Newsfile Corp. in its sole discretion, we may warn you, or suspend or terminate your account. Please note that, in accordance with the Newsfile Corp. Terms of Service, we may change this policy at any time. It is your responsibility to keep up-to-date with and comply with this policy.
