Keen strictly enforces and requires that all Users comply with this Anti-Spam Policy.
What is spam?
"Spam" is unsolicited email messages including commercial email, bulk email and junk email sent to individuals who have not given their consent to receive such messages, who have not requested information contained in such messages and who have no prior professional or personal relationship with the sender. Spam also includes Usenet and message board messages, which are unrelated to the topic of discussion of the particular news group or message board.
You should not send Spam about Keen or your Services or any other User's Services to people whom you do not know. Please refer Keen to friends, family and people you do know. You should not send Mail to Users who are not on your My Customers list.
To whom can I send messages using Mail?
As a User, you can send Mail to everyone on your My Customers list. You may not send unsolicited Mail messages of any kind to Users with whom you have not had prior contact, or to Users who have not given you permission to send them advertising or solicitation materials; Keen considers this to be spam. If a User is on your My Customers list requests that you do not send such messages, you agree to respect the wishes of that User, and agree to not send any messages to that User.
The easiest way to refer people to Keen is through Keen's "Tell a Friend" program. Simply fill out this form with your friends' email addresses, and we'll send them an email for you. Alternatively, you can write your own short message explaining Keen and send it via email to your friends, family and other people you know. You can also refer people to Keen using our Send Offers tool. Find out more about this in My Account. If you choose to use either the "Tell a Friend" program or the Send Offers tools, you agree that you will do not use these options to send Spam. You can also send messages to anyone you know who might like to sign up for Keen, however you may only send messages to people with whom you have a prior professional or personal relationship, such as friends, family, online buddies, business associates and colleagues.
The CAN-SPAM Act
Keen appreciates your support, and we thank you for recommending us to your friends and family. We also do strive to respect people's privacy. Consistent with the standards set forth in the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act, "Tell a Friend" messages that you request we send will include an "opt-out" link for recipients to request to not receive such messages from you in the future, Keen's postal address, and a statement that the "Tell a Friend" message may contain advertising materials. "Tell a Friend" messages sent through our website will also be sent from a valid return email address. Keen includes these features in advertising emails we send, and we will include them in emails we send out on your behalf.
You may post messages about Keen to any group who welcomes such messages, such as groups that discuss topics relating to giving advice or earning money online. However, please adhere to our User Agreement and do not post unsolicited messages about Keen on Usenet groups, on message boards or in chat rooms, or on other Internet sites in a manner that could be construed as Spam. This Anti-Spam Policy does not apply to the practices of any companies or individuals that Keen does not control, or any third-party websites that you visit as a result of using the Services.
