This Anti-Spam Policy, TCU and Privacy Policy (collectively, the "Agreement") may be amended by Granza from time to time and subsequently reposted or linked from emails generated from Granza or otherwise furnished to you. By posting updated versions of the Agreement on the granza.com web site, or otherwise providing notice to you, Granza may modify the terms of the Agreement and may discontinue or revise any or all other aspects of the products and services at its sole discretion. Except as otherwise provided in the Agreement, all such changes shall become effective upon the posting of any associated elements of this Agreement. It is your responsibility to check for updates.

Granza has a no tolerance spam policy. We are a permission based email marketing system that follows the strictest permission based rules. Any user found to be using Granza for spam will immediately be cut-off from using the system. Granza actively monitors its system for spam activity, including, but not limited to the importing of large email lists. If you know of or suspect any violators, please notify us immediately at [email protected]

What Is Spam?

Spam is unsolicited email. It is also known as UCE, or Unsolicited Commercial Email. When you use Granza to send email only to those who have requested to receive it from you, you are following accepted permission based email guidelines. Every email message sent in connection with Granza must contain an "unsubscribe" link that allows subscribers to remove themselves from your mailing. The link must remain operational for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which you send the message, and may not be altered. You acknowledge and agree that you will not remove, disable or attempt to remove or disable any required links. Although Granza provides automated opt out links and management, you shall monitor, maintain and are solely responsible for processing all unsubscribe requests received by you directly within ten (10) days of submission, and update the email addresses to which messages are sent through your Granza account. Under the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, you acknowledge that you are responsible for maintaining and honoring the list of unsubscribe requests following termination of your account and Agreement.

Why An Anti-Spam Policy Is Important

Simply stated, spam hurts everyone. Our goal is to reach the highest levels of user satisfaction, customer opt ins, read rates and retention. When user email activities are reported as spam, the Gmail's, Yahoo's and AOL's of the world can block even innocent users from reaching their customers. A federal anti-spam law went into effect on January 1st, 2004. The law details the rules with regards to the sending of commercial email. Even with these tough rules, spam is still a major problem. Penalties can include a fine and/or imprisonment for up to 5 years.

How We Make It Happen

Granza policies and built in features help to insure that you remain compliant. By accepting our Terms and Conditions, you have agreed to use only permission based lists and that you will never use rented or purchased email lists. All of your emails automatically contain your contact information and physical address. Your email header information contains your verified email address. The "From" address identifies you as the sender. Your Granza sign up states why you are collecting contact, customer, visitor or any other email addresses and how you plan to use them, and that you are following our privacy policy. Informed consent tells your recipients that they are receiving your emails because they have made a purchase, requested information, responded to a questionnaire or a survey, or had offline contact with you. Your emails automatically contain verbiage confirming their interest in receiving emails from you. If any of your contacts change their preferences or unsubscribes, Granza automatically sends out an email confirmation. All emails contain an unsubscribe link, which automatically updates your list so unwanted emails are not sent. Attempts to modify or disable these embedded links are cause for the immediate termination of your account. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for insuring that unsubscribe requests are processed immediately.
