Unsolicited Bulk Email Communications (SPAM) Policy
Unsolicited Email SPAM is defined as electronic mail that is unrequested by the recipient and is of an advertising or promotional nature.
"E-mail spam, known as unsolicited bulk Email (UBE), junk mail, or unsolicited commercial email (UCE), is the practice of sending unwanted e-mail messages, frequently with commercial content, in large quantities to an indiscriminate set of recipients. Spam in e-mail started to become a problem when the Internet was opened up to the general public in the mid-1990s. It grew exponentially over the following years, and today composes some 80 to 85% of all the email in the world, by a conservative estimate" - Wikipedia
