JKAhosting affiliate account. The following policy outlines in specific terms
what is considered acceptable use of bulk email by JKAhosting.
Mailing list subscribers must specifically
opt-into the list they are subscribed to. This applies to both new subscriptions
and the bulk addition of addresses already subscribed via other means.
Confirmation is handled using a single confirmation message sent to the
subscriber's email address. This mailing must contain a URL to the site's

the date and time that the subscription was confirmed, as well as the IP address
of the subscriber at the time of the subscription. The user must be able to
present this information at JKAhosting's request.
The nature of email address use must be fully
disclosed, either on the page the subscription is made from, or with a prominent
email address will be used and in what circumstances it will be shared.

to the user.

message in such a way that purposefully obfuscates the origin of the message.
- Undeliverable addresses must be removed from
all future mailings after no more than 5 bounces.
- Users are responsible for the practices of any
affiliate program members they solicit the help of, as if they were hiring an
outside advertising agency.
- Users using either outside advertising
companies or 3rd party mailing programs must abide by the same policies and
practices as those using Crucial's own bulk mailing list tools.
- All mailings must provide clear and simple to
follow instructions for opting-out of future mailings, and all reasonable
attempts must be made to facilitate the removal of a mailing list subscriber
at their request.
- The user is advised and acknowledges that
Crucial's electronic mail service equipment is located in Texas. In no event
shall the user use Crucial's equipment in violation of Texas' anti-spam laws.
It is strictly prohibited in conjunction with
your JKAhosting affiliate account to sell software designed specifically to
facilitate the practice of spamming.
Predominately promotional messages must not be
posted to bulletin boards, discussion forums, guestbooks, Usenet newsgroups, or
any other similar service unless the operator of that service explicitly allows
such messages. In the case of Usenet newsgroups, such messages must be
specifically allowed in that group's charter.
JKAhosting reserves the right to disable any
account at any time should it feel there is a reasonable suspicion that it is
being used in conjunction with the practice of spamming.
Affiliates must substantially address all spam
related inquiries by JKAhosting personnel within 72 hours. Failure to respond
within a reasonable period of time may result in the disablement of the
