2. Hosting customers are permitted to send confirmed 'opt-in' bulk-email to Mailing Lists of up to 500 recipients per hour and a maximum of 6000 recipients per day.

3. You will represent, undertake and warrant to Australia-Host.com that any bulk-email, sent either using the services provided by Australia-Host.com or to promote a website or domain held on the Australia-Host.comNetwork, will comply with the terms below. Any bulk-email that does not comply with these terms will be treated as SPAM and clause 1 of this policy will apply: -
3.1. Every email must clearly state who the sender is and give clear and precise instructions on how to be removed from receiving any further communications of the same or similar nature. The removal instructions shall be easy to understand and must aid and not hinder the subscriber.
3.2. You shall ensure that before the sending of any bulk-email you have received back a 'Subscription Confirmation Request' from each recipient's email address that proves that the recipient did in fact 'opt-in' to receiving communications of this kind. If you do not have such proof then it will be treated as SPAM and clause 1 of this policy will be applied.
You shall ensure the 'Subscription Confirmation Request' sent to the recipient to confirm 'opt in' of bulk-email shall not be an advertisement for products or services.
You shall ensure that any bulk email must comply fully with EU-based legislation, The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
To prevent the sending of bulk unsolicited email and to prevent the IP addresses of Australia-Host.com being blocked by IP address blocking, then this policy will be applied, in the following scenarios: -
Where Australia-Host.com has received any complaints concerning unsolicited email originating from a Australia-Host.com hosted domain.
Where Australia-Host.com have received any complaints concerning unsolicited email being sent to promote websites and domains that are hosted on the Australia-Host.com network. This also includes domains which use the Australia-Host.com domain forwarding service.
Where bulk-email is sent to a 'dirty list' of unconfirmed 'opt-in' email addresses.
Where bulk-email is sent to email addresses harvested from the Internet.
Where bulk-email is sent to email addresses obtained from another party, even if the other party claim the list is 'opt-in'.
Where you have not put in place adequate protection to prevent web applications and scripts from sending unsolicited spam email for your website.
Nothing in this policy is intended to grant any right to transmit or send email to, or through, the Services provided by Australia-Host.com. Failure to enforce this policy in every instance does not amount to a waiver of Australia-Host.coms rights.
Unauthorized use of the Services in connection with the transmission of unsolicited email, including the transmission of email in violation of this policy, may result in civil, criminal, or administrative penalties against the sender and those assisting the sender.
