8. Spam and unsolicited emails

8.1       The Suna Communications website is a spam free zone. As our online service facilitates the broadcast of email newsletters, Suna Communications has very clear guidelines and is very sensitive to issues regarding unwanted emails and SPAM. While we encourage you to publicize your activities using the Suna Communications service/s, you are expressly prohibited from sending unsolicited emails to email recipients (spamming), except under very clear guidelines. We actively work with all Suna Communications members to make sure they understand and abide by common principals of email protocol and "opt-in" policy - giving recipients the freedom to decide whether they would like to receive the materials being sent.

8.2       All Suna Communications eMailouts are distributed with embedded subscribe / unsubscribe functionality. These tools help reinforce our 'opt-in' marketing policies and philosophy.

8.3       Newsletters are a powerful educational tool, and are very effective in helping build rich, long term relationships with customers / members. eMailouts can also serve a valuable role in prospecting, lead generation and more traditional direct marketing of products and services. In these cases, Suna Communications works closely with members to ensure they comply with our policies. In all such cases, such activities must be conducted using valid "opt-in" lists sourced from reputable providers. In any instance where any eMailout is sent to a third party without their specific request, the person or organisation responsible for the origination of the contact must be clearly identified to us and to the recipients of the newsletter.

8.4       Despite all of our integrated systems, and our best efforts to eliminate potential issues, there remains the possibility that a Suna Communications customer may send emails to a person/s who consider the email as undesirable solicitation or unwanted communications. This may be due to a misunderstanding between our customer and the recipient, or an abuse of our email policies. Initially, we ask email recipients to first consider if they are indeed part of the "opt-in" email list that the publisher identified in the email has used. If this is not the case, we ask that the recipient report any potential breach of our systems to abuse@sunacommunications.com.

8.5       If we are made aware that the Suna Communications website has been used in any activities involving spamming activities or processes, or inappropriately dealing with databases and contact lists, we reserve the right to remove the account from our servers. In the event of a termination of membership for improper use, there will be no refund of any credit accrued by the user with Suna Communications.
