Email Policy

SparkLIT is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring that your experience with our services is a positive one. This policy outlines our handling practices for email, mailing lists, newsletters, and associated information. We encourage you to read this policy to ensure you understand SparkLIT�s practices. Users of the website may also be interested in the Privacy Policy.


Collection of Email Addresses


We do not collect email addresses from web-spiders, mailing-list services, spam lists, or other third-party sources. SparkLIT only collects email addresses of clients, affiliates, vendors, users of our services, and others with whom we have a business relationship.

We only collect email addresses on an opt-in basis, and we will only use these addresses for the purposes stated at the time they were collected.


Sharing of Mailing Lists and Emails


We do not sell or rent Mailing Lists or Emails gathered through our services. SparkLIT considers all mailing lists to be the property of the owner of the product or service for which they were gathered. We do not share, sell, rent, distribute, or use mailing lists (in whole or in part) belonging to our clients.

We may store or replicate this information within our own servers as a normal part of providing the services for which they were collected. At any time, the owner of the mailing list may contact us and have this information deleted.

We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your personal information and other related information, if necessary. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We may collect and possibly share personal information and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of SparkLIT's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.


Unsubscribing


We recognize your right to opt out of future communications at any time. Any ongoing communications sent by SparkLIT, including Newsletters, Forum Digests, Announcements, and Account Bulletins include instructions on how you can unsubscribe from that particular mailing.

You may opt out of all future email communications of any kind by adding your name to the no send list.

You may also unsubscribe from SparkLIT's various mailings by sending a letter, including your name, email address and the title of the material you wish to unsubscribe from to:

Unsolicited Mailing (Spam)


We take spam/unsolicited mail very seriously. SparkLIT makes every effort to ensure that emails are sent only to interested parties who have explicitly expressed interest in that communication.

Some of our services make it possible for our premium clients to send email to their own mailing lists. We offer these services on good faith, and it is our policy that any user-entered mailing list must be composed of opt-in emails that the owner has been authorized to contact. Failure to comply with this policy may lead to a loss of mailing privileges or the closing of your account.

If you have been sent any form of unsolicited or offensive material that was generated using SparkLIT's services, we want to hear about it. Please follow the directions on the Spam/Abuse page for generating an online report.


Guidelines for Client Generated Email


SparkLIT's content guidelines are laid out in section 3(b) of our Membership Agreement. In addition, we require the following of any mailing lists or email addresses to which mail will be distributed using SparkLIT's services:

(a) inclusion in the list must be voluntary, and must be entered into knowingly by the intended recipient,

(b) the content and nature of material being sent must be adequately and accurately disclosed at the time of registration,

(c) any request for removal from the list must be honored within a reasonable time (we may automate this process),

(d) if material of a mature/adult nature is being sent, the list must have been screened to prevent the inclusion of minors,

(e) if the list has been received from a third party, you must warrant that the author of the list complies with the points above.

If you have been sent any form of unsolicited or offensive material that was generated using SparkLIT's services, we want to hear about it. Please follow the directions on the Spam/Abuse page for generating an online report.
