LiveAdvice strictly enforces and requires that all Members 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 LiveAdvice or the Advisor Services to people whom you do not know. Please refer LiveAdvice to friends, family and people you do know. You should not send Mail to members who are not on your My Customers list.
To whom can I send messages using Mail?
As an Advisor, you can send Mail to everyone on your My Customers list. You may not send unsolicited Mail messages of any kind to Members with whom you have not had prior contact or to Members who have not given you permission to send them advertising or solicitation materials; LiveAdvice considers this to be spam. If a Member is on your My Customers list and requests that you do not send such messages, you agree to respect the wishes of that Member and not to send any messages to that Member.
What's the best way to refer people to LiveAdvice?
The easiest way to refer people to LiveAdvice is through LiveAdvice'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 LiveAdvice and send it via email to your friends, family and other people you know. If you're an Advisor, you can also refer people to LiveAdvice 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 LiveAdvice, 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
LiveAdvice 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, LiveAdvice'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. LiveAdvice includes these features in advertising emails we send, and we will include them in emails we send out on your behalf.
