medium that may lead a person or business to a Email Aces website.
In addition to unsolicited email, our policy prohibits advertising in Usenet

expressly state that advertising is acceptable. Advertising in, or abuse of
chat rooms, buddy lists, ICQ, MIRC, ICQ, AOL, MSN, ODIGO, Yahoo! Pager, or any

venue in regard to advertising.
If we receive a complaint from any business or individual we will suspend the

complaint will be immediately researched to determine its validity. If the
member is found to be in violation of our policies, we will terminate the account
immediately and without warning. If the complaint is found to be invalid, the member's
access will be reinstated immediately.
Anyone who uses Email Aces resources, web sites, mail servers, website
addresses, or personalized web address for the practice of spamming, will be liable
for any expenses incurred by us to reverse any actions taken by our ISP or
other services as a result of said spamming.
Safe List Members
If you are a member of a safe list or opt-in list, you may send email to the
members of that list, ONLY if you have permission to do so.
All legitimate safe list owners provide a disclaimer for you to use that
identifies email sent to others on the safe list that the email they are
receiving is due to the safe list membership. If you do not include this
disclaimer, even if you forget, you will get SPAM complaints and we will have
take action. Forgetfulness is not an excuse.
Personal List Members
If you have a list of people with whom you have previously received permission
to send or swap advertisements, and have valid proof of this, you may send them
an email ad at your own risk. If you are unsure whether or not you have
permission do not send any advertisements.
If you DO receive permission to send solicitations to someone, make sure you
keep a copy of that permission as you may later need it for proof.
You may not use an Email Aces autoresponder address as the "From:"
or "Reply-To:" email address, or an email address that redirects or
forwards to an Email Aces autoresponder address in any outgoing headers. Use of an
Email Aces address in this, or any other part of the headers of outgoing email will
not be accepted.
FFA Link Confirmation Emails
If you have an FFA links page, you may not advertise Email Aces in your
"link confirmation email." for any reason. You may not use a Email Aces
autoresponder address, tracking URL, or any other Email Aces related service in

Replying to SPAM or Other Email Advertisements
You may not send a solicitation or advertisement to people or businesses just
because they sent one to you. SPAM from others is not considered permission to
send SPAM back to them and does not constitute a previous business relationship

Lists Purchased From Outside Vendors
You may NOT purchase a list from a list vendor unless the vendor has been
approved by Email Aces in writing. Any lists purchased via email
solicitations are not acceptable. In order for a list to be considered for approval
the supplier of the list must provide valid documentation on how the email
addresses are collected and provide a "double-optin" method and IP
addresses for each subscriber.
You may NOT post your ad to newsgroups UNLESS that newsgroup specifically
states in their charter that advertisements are approved for the list. If you
are unsure, don't do it! You may also not post or make mention of any Email Aces
autoresponder or email address in a newsgroup posting because the
newsgroups are frequently harvested for SPAM lists.
You may NOT send any email using the following disclaimers. If we receive a
complaint on and the offending email includes any form of these statements,
your account will be terminated without investigation.
