Anti Spam Policy
Email and Prohibited Content
This policy applies to your use of the cliizii platform and services.
If you contravene this policy at any time, as determined by cliizii in its sole discretion, we may notify you, or suspend or terminate your account.
cliizii has a zero-tolerance spam policy. This means that all email recipients must have opted in to, or otherwise validly given permission to, receiving communications from you, the sender. Subscriber accounts may be terminated for sending unsolicited email messages.
All email messages sent by you in connection with a cliizii Session must contain an “unsubscribe” link that allows subscribers to remove themselves from your email messages. You acknowledge and agree that you will not hide, disable, or remove or attempt to hide, disable, or remove the opt-out link from the cliizii system email messages.
The system includes automatic deletion of unsubscribed Contacts from the Contact Lists. However, you will also actively manage and process any unsubscribe requests received by you directly within ten days of submission, and update your email Contact Lists, databases and address books to reflect the unsubscribe requests.
You are responsible for ensuring that the email messages you send in connection with your Sessions do not generate a number of spam complaints or bounce rates in excess of industry standards. If cliizii determines that your level of spam complaints or bounce rate is higher than industry standards, cliizii, 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.
Emails you send via a cliizii Contact List must have a ...
valid reply-to email address owned or managed by you in the Email Template signature. This is inserted by default from your Contact details and not able to be deleted.
PO Box number or physical mailing address where you can receive postal mail (not an email or website address)
You can only use cliizii to send emails to lists of people that gave you permission to email them. If you don’t have proof that each recipient on your list opted in for your emails, don’t import them into cliizii. Please note that a Contact List created in cliizii Recruiter includes a mandatory Permission-To-Contact question that must be answered Yes by the Guest, before their Contact Details are added to the Contact List.
We prohibit the use of harvested mailing lists. Cliizii will terminate an Account 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 from the cliizii system.
You must be able to tell us where you got your cliizii Contact List.
You must not send unsolicited mail from the cliizii system to newsgroups, message boards, distribution lists, or email addresses.
You must not utilize the cliizii system to send any commercial electronic mail messages (as defined in the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003) to any recipient who has opted out, unsubscribed, or otherwise objected to receiving such messages from you or another party on whose behalf you may be commissioned. If you intend on sending commercial emails, you should familiarize yourself with the CAN-SPAM Act, which outlines requirements under United States law for sending out such emails, and any other applicable anti-spam laws.
You must not use cliizii to send emails with deceptive subject lines or false or misleading header information or contact information
If you suspect that cliizii has been used by someone to send spam, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate the matter.
Additional Anti-Spam Requirements
The above are very strict rules that must be adhered to in all countries, but you may find that your country has additional requirements for compliance.
International Requirements By Country
Spam Act 2003, Act No. 129 of 2003 as amended.
Commission de la protection de la vie privée, Le spam en Belgique Etat des lieux en juillet 2003, July 4, 2003
Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) amends the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Act, the Competition Act, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and the Telecommunications Act. It is very similar to CAN-SPAM but has some minor differences and covers all electronic messages, not just email.
Article 13 of DIRECTIVE 2002/58/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 12 July 2002 concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector (Directive on privacy and electronic communications).
The EU body that addresses spam is The Contact Network of Spam Enforcement Authorities (CNSA).
The Directive is implemented by each member state independently so you will want to check with your particular country law for more details.
Falls under the Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) [National Data Processing and Liberties Commission], Electronic Mailing and Data Protection (Oct. 14, 1999) (French) CNIL Guidelines on email marketing.
Italy's anti-spam laws are very strict. You can even be imprisoned for sending spam. If you're sending to Italian recipients, follow these guidelines as well.
The Code transposed EC Directive 95/46 on the protection of personal data and EC Directive 2002/58 on privacy in electronic communications; it consolidated all Italian pre-existing laws and regulations in this sector.
DL 196/2003 Personal Data Protection Code • DL 675/1996 on privacy protection states, inter alia, that a company must have authorization from each user whose personal data (such as e-mail) they want to use. • DL 171/1998 (deriving from the European Community directive 97/66/CE) on telecommunications privacy protection: this put outlaws all automatic systems to call a user and says that all the expenses of an advertising must be paid by the company and not the user (faxes and e-mails are instead paid also by the user).
DL 185/1999 (deriving from the European Community directive 97/7/CE) on customer protection with respect to long-distance contracts: this obliges companies to seek the permission of the user for virtual or telephone sales.
Dutch law requires very explicit permission and heavily protects data and privacy.
Regulation of Spam in South Africa - South African Law
Swedish Marketing Act (Swedish Code of Statutes, SFS 1995:450).
Personal Data Act (Swedish Code of Statutes, SFS 1998:204), in so far as spam activities involve processing of personal data.
Thanks for letting us have our say, again another thing that makes this feel like a community, & not just a number in a rating.
Easy, stress free chat with my past guests
I picked the topics for discussion and got honest opinions from past clients. Instead of me telling the decision makers what was needed for the future growth of the business, I can now pass on direct opinions from the clients to those who control the capital spending. It puts the top brass, who never see the clients, in touch with those who buy their product and enables me to validate the input I'm giving the PTB's. I'll keep using this program to make my management that much easier.
I love the hands-on nature of this software, and the true answers we get from the listeners.
Hiding behind a keyboard seems to get more honest feedback than a room full of people where one or two generally set the tone of everyone else.
Thanks for the opportunity!
Was fun to be part of and see others thoughts.
Awesome, thank you so much!
I've really enjoyed doing this and hope that some of my answers have been helpful.
Thanks for the opportunity!
Great to see your actually interested in the audiences ideas & opinions. Nice to chat with the other contributors too!
Such a great concept
I was on last night watching in real time. Such a great concept and so easy to navigate. Lots of useful stuff in there.
Open discussion and direct feedback
cliizii is an easy tool to use for both internal and external marketing purposes, it creates a platform for open discussion and direct feedback. The Summary Report is a useful collation of the results of each session.
Human Conversation with Customers
I got the chance to watch my clients have human conversations again with customers - rather than just read the data from a survey. Amazing what you find out when you actually chat with people rather than just ask them to tick boxes.
