No-Spam Policy
Customer shall comply with all the terms and conditions of Mzansi Web Hosting's No-Spam Policy (NSP) as described here. Violation of the NSP shall be deemed a violation of this AUP and of the Customer’s Agreement with Mzansi Web Hosting.

At Mzansi Web Hosting, we are committed to providing valuable hosting services to our valued customers.

An important part of Mzansi Web Hosting’s mission is to be a respected and responsible member of the business and Internet communities. We take seriously our role in protecting our customers and the general public from nuisances such as “spam.” This section describes our NO-SPAM Policy. Please read it carefully, because it contains important information and because it is a material part of your Agreement with Mzansi Web Hosting.

Definition of Spam.
Unsolicited commercial e-mail and electronic messages are colloquially referred to as “spam.” Other common names for spam include “spam e-mail,” “junk e-mail,” “bulk e-mail,” “direct e-mail,” and “mass e-mail.” Spam is the electronic equivalent of the direct mail you receive in your postal mailbox frequently. In its most general terms, and as used in this NO-SPAM Policy (the “Policy”), spam is:

  • a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message, including, but not limited to, messages that are:
    • posted to an electronic mailing list (other than an “opt-in” e-mail list as described below),
    • posted on an online bulletin board system or Web-based message board system or “guest book”,
    • posted to a Usenet newsgroup,
    • posted to the common area of an online community, group, or club,
    • posted in a chat room,
    • posted in a message board of a commercial online service (such as America Online),
    • posted to a Weblog (“blog”),
  • a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that is addressed to one or more recipients with whom you do not have an preexisting business or personal relationship,
  • a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that is sent to a mailing list of addresses that you purchased or that were otherwise distributed, or any list of e-mail addresses whose owners did not sign up for your specific mailing list, including without limitation lists commonly known as “affiliate lists,”
  • a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that is not sent at the request of, or with the express consent of, the recipient(s),
  • a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that is sent to a recipient who has opted out of receiving further commercial electronic messages from you, or
  • a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that contains forged headers, compromised mail server relays, or false contact information

For purposes of this Policy, spam also includes any e-mail or other electronic message that is sent in violation of any applicable Federal, state, or local law regulating unsolicited commercial e-mail, unsolicited fax transmissions, or any other type of unsolicited commercial electronic message, regardless of whether that message fits the definition of “spam” provided above.

Zero Tolerance for Spam.
Mzansi Web Hosting will not tolerate any spamming by any of its Customers. This prohibition of spam extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of Mzansi Web Hosting’s services whether or not the message actually originated from our network.

Violation of this NO-SPAM policy will result in Mzansi Web Hosting taking one or more of the following actions:

  • A warning via e-mail or telephone,
  • Suspension of your site until furthur notice,
  • Removal of DNS for the advertised/originating site, or
  • Temporarily blocking outgoing mail from your site.
  • Repeated violation of this NO-SPAM policy will result in immediate disconnection of service with no re-activation.

PLEASE NOTE: The transmission of spam, including the transmission of counterfeit e-mail, may result in civil and criminal penalties against the sender, under various federal, state, and local laws and regulations, including the federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.
