It is prohibited to mail spam via our service!
Rules for the dispatch of emails are very simple. If your subscribers belong to the category "YES - sending an email is permitted", then you can send them an email via our service. If your data corresponds to the category "NO - sending an email is not permitted", then you may under no circumstances send these subscribers emails.

Purchased Email Addresses
The email addresses have been bought from another company. These recipients may NOT be contacted by mail, since they have not granted YOU the permission to send an email. Even if the address vendor has issued a certificate or a purchase document, is it forbidden for you to use this data.

Recipient data that have been in your possession for longer than 2 years and have never been contacted by email during this time may not be used.
