Spam Policy or Agnes Boukaram does not tolerate or support spam (i.e. unsolicited commercial email) because it wastes valuable time and resources.

Spam also diminishes the overall value and effectiveness of email communications.

Therefore, neither the Company nor any website, affiliate, member, or customer is permitted to send unsolicited electronic communications to persons who have not asked them to do so or to whom a pre-existing relationship does not exist by using, harvesting, or otherwise obtaining information associated with the website (the “Website”) in order to transmit any e-mail communication.

It is a violation of this Spam Policy and Terms of Use (“TOU”) for any customer, member, website, or affiliate to do so. Violation of this Spam Policy and/or the TOU may, in the Company's sole and absolute discretion, result in account termination and/or restriction of website access rights.

Why have you received unsolicited emails from unknown senders?

On occasion, you may receive what appears to be an unsolicited e-mail or an e-mail from a sender you do not know. Depending on the circumstances, these emails may or may not violate this spam policy.

For example, the following are examples of permissible circumstances in which a potentially unsolicited email or an email from an unknown sender may have been received by you:

You may have signed up for newsletters, promotions, or services from an associated and/or affiliated website and forgot you did so;
You have an existing relationship (i.e. purchased something or used certain services) with an associated and/or affiliate website; and/or
Someone may have signed you up to receive newsletters, promotions, services, or email communications from an associated website without your permission.
Under the above scenarios, the email communication received would not violate the Company's spam or TOU policy because it would have been authorized or at least appear to have been authorized, by you or there is an existing relationship between you and the sender.

Despite these circumstances, you may want to stop receiving these email communications.

What you can do to stop receiving unwanted email communications.

The first thing you can do is to see if the unwanted e-mail communication contains a hyperlink at the bottom of the message to opt out or delete your e-mail address from future e-mail transmissions.

If so, click on the hyperlink at the bottom of the message that is designated to opt out or removes yourself from other e-mail transmissions from the sender to stop receiving them in the future.

If you click on the “Remove” link at the end of a message sent by the Company or an associated website, you will be automatically removed from the customer's subscriber list used to generate the e-mail communication.

Circumstances may arise where you have received spam in violation of this Spam Policy and DU.

To report abusive email activity, please send an email to agnes @ that provides a description of the content of the email, the subject line, and the identity of the sender so that the Company can investigate the matter and, if necessary, appropriate action can be taken.

How the Company protects against spam from its servers.

The Company takes several steps to protect its online community from spam originating on its servers. First, the Company only sends email communications to those who have provided their email address and have expressed an interest in receiving future offers, newsletters, promotions, and other information.

Second, the Company carefully guards the information provided by its members and customers.

For example, e-mail addresses provided to the Company are securely maintained and access to this information is restricted. In addition, the Company strives to personalize its e-mail communications with information that demonstrates an existing relationship with those who receive e-mail messages.

The Company also does not authorize any website or associated affiliate to send offers, newsletters, promotions, and other information to those who have not requested them. Such e-mail communications violate this spam policy.

In addition, the Company uses specific tools to ensure that no one is signed up for a newsletter against their will. The Company also provides opt-out or delete hyperlinks at the bottom of its outgoing email communications.

The Company takes every reported incident of spam seriously. In doing so, the Company carefully reviews each reported incident of spam due to the cumulative behavior of the customer or member while using the Website and its related services or features.

What happens when an associated website or affiliate is accused of spamming?

The Company takes the following actions if it receives a complaint of spamming regarding an associated website or affiliate:

The Company immediately checks to see if the associated website or affiliate is receiving an excessive number of spam complaints, which may indicate a breach of protocol or other procedure that requires corrective action;

If, after reviewing spam complaints, the Company concludes that a mailing list is compromised or questionable, the Company will restrict access by the website or affiliate in question until it is provided with an affidavit sufficiently attesting that the website or affiliate is in compliance with the Company's spam policy and is not sending spam. An authorized representative of the website or affiliate must sign the affidavit and its contents must be approved by the Company before services or access will be restored, and Company will not do business with any website or affiliate that refuses to accept the spam policy or any other agreement required by Company.

In addition, Company reserves the right, exercisable in its sole discretion, to terminate any business relationship with a website or affiliate that violates the Spam Policy, whether or not steps are taken to remedy the circumstances giving rise to the violation.

Why a website or affiliate named in a spam complaint is not simply cut off.

Some may believe that the Company should immediately shut down a website or affiliate that is named in a spam complaint.

The Company has decided not to do this. This was done because the Company believes that such an action would compromise legitimate website-related email communications and would be unfair to its members/customers. A number of possible scenarios exist whereby a website or affiliate may be accused of sending spam email communications, even though they have complied with the spam policy.

In some cases, a spam complaint may be filed by a disgruntled employee, a dissatisfied customer, or a competitor seeking to disrupt access to the website for nefarious and inappropriate purposes.

In addition, in many other cases, the Company may receive a spam complaint from someone who simply forgot that they signed up to receive an email communication from a website or affiliate.

In short, the Company must investigate, evaluate and adjudicate each spam complaint on its merits. The Company would not effectively serve its members/customers by immediately refusing to do business with anyone before having the opportunity to investigate and review the circumstances of a spam complaint.

Spam Policy Changes.

The Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, may change, modify, alter or amend this Spam Policy without notice to Members, Customers, Affiliates, and others by posting a copy of the new operational version on the Website. All members, customers, affiliates and other persons subject to the Company's Spam Policy are required to familiarize themselves with its terms and to periodically review the Spam Policy posted on the Website for any changes, alternations, modifications, or amendments.
