Anti Spam Policy
RapidShot take spam and permission very seriously. When you request an account you are asked to agree to this anti-spam policy.

Spam is any email you send to someone who hasn't given you their direct permission to contact them on the topic of the email.

But that's not enough. Permission is open to interpretation. Here are some specific scenarios to clarify what does and doesn't constitute permission.

To send an email to someone using RapidShot, you must have clearly obtained their permission. Either;

  • An opt-in checkbox on an offline or online form. This checkbox must not be checked by default.
  • Customers who have purchased from you within the last 2 years.
  • If someone gives you their business card and you have explained to them that you will be in touch by email, you can contact them.
  • You should only ever email anyone who has clearly given you permission to email them specifically about the subject you're contacting them about.

By using RapidShot, you agree not to import or send to any email address which:

  • You do not have explicit, provable permission to contact in relation to the topic of the email you're sending.
  • You bought, loaned, rented or in any way acquired your email list from a third party, no matter what they claim about quality or permission.
  • You haven't contacted via email in the last 2 years, these people may not remember giving their permission in the first place.
  • You harvested the email from the web. Just because people publish their email address doesn't mean they want to hear from you.

Every email you send using RapidShot must include the following information;

  • A single-click unsubscribe link that instantly removes the subscriber from your list. Once they unsubscribe, you can never email them again.
  • The name and physical address of the sender. Report spam complaints to abuse@RapidShot.co.uk
