What is Spam?
Spam is unsolicited email also known as junk mail or UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email.) By sending email to only to those who have requested to receive it, you are following accepted permission-based email guidelines.

How bestnewslettersonline.com protects you from sending spam
Constant Contact is a permission-based email-marketing tool (opt-in) that follows the strictest permission-based philosophies:

  • Communication - Your paperless newsletter contract already states why you are collecting the site visitor's email address, how you plan to use their address, and that you are following the embedded privacy policy.

  • Verification - bestnewslettersonline.com automatically sends all of your new subscribers an email confirming their interest in receiving emails from you. Additionally, if your subscriber changes his or her interests or unsubscribes, bestnewslettersonline.com automatically sends an email confirmation.

  • Unsubscription - Every email generated from Paperless Newseltters contains unsubscribe information which automatically updates your subscriber lists to avoid the chance of sending unwanted emails to visitors who have unsubscribed.

  • Contact Information - all of your emails are pre-filled with your contact information

Isn't there a law restricting Spam?
Yes, but state spam statutes vary so it is important to conform to the strictest standards. Many states have spam statutes, and they all differ; each state has its own definition of unsolicited commercial email. Additionally, there are various federal agencies keeping track of spam including the Federal Trade Commission.
