BizBrag's Anti-SPAM Policy

BizBrag is vigilant and has zero tolerance when it comes to spam. If you suspect anyone abusing the BizBrag system by conducting any activities as it relates to spam, please contact us immediately at: [email protected]. Although BizBrag keeps a watchful eye over lists, bulk emails sent, and opt-out/unsubscribe responses, we count on you to help us maintain a great site and stay alert for abusive behavior. When this type of behavior takes place, that user will be terminated from all BizBrag products and services immediately.

So, what is spam? Simply put, spam is against the law! Spam has many definitions, and you can see the exact definitions at the CAN-SPAM Act link. For the purposes of running your business, protecting yourself and protecting BizBrag, the following points are what the Act insists upon for all who are sending email, bulk email (commercial and/or transactional) so, please pay attention and always abide by the following

What You and Your Biz Must Do:

  • All lists must be Permission-Based. This means that when you import, upload and even type in individual email addresses and/or lists in your BizContactz address book, every one of those email addresses must be consented to. Thus, allowing you to send them correspondence. Consent and/or allowance constitutes that the recipient of your email has had offline contact with you, responded to a survey/questionnaire, has requested information in the past or has purchased a product or service from you in the past, and has been clearly notified of the use of their email for the purposes of future email correspondence from you.
  • Indentify Yourself/Your Business Clearly. The way you do this is pretty simple, when you register, you are required to use a valid email address. That email address is the same one that appears in the ‘From’ line for all of your email correspondence…thus keeping you in compliance by not manipulating it from email to email (this would trigger an inquiry).
  • Physical Address. You must provide your physical business or individual address in your profile before you can send any email correspondence.
  • Non-Specific Email Adresses. Do not send any emails to non-specific email addresses. Examples of these are: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], instead of directly to someone. The correct use would be [email protected], [email protected] or [email protected]
  • Timely Response. When a recipient opts-out/unsubscribes from your email list, you are no longer able to email that person from the BizBrag platform. You must ‘deactivate’ this recipient’s email from your BizContactz for all future emails you send. We work together on this!

What BizBrag Does To Protect You and Your Biz:

  • Accurate Subject Line. BizBrag automatically populates the subject line for you. This subject line will announce that your company has news that you want the recipient to read.
  • Clean content. Before your news is emailed to your recipients or sent to the web, it is quickly scanned by a BizBrag program to find any triggers of spam: excessive red font, large font, headline with pharmaceutical products, too many exclamation points (!!!!!!) and other triggering elements.
  • Opt-out/Unsubscribe link. These links are automatically embedded at the footer, in a very clear manner, of all emails that you will be sending to your recipients.
  • Timely Response. When a recipient opts-out/unsubscribes from your email list, you are no longer able to email that person from the BizBrag platform. You will receive an email from BizBrag stating the wishes of the recipient to by opted-out/unsubscribed. This recipient’s email will be disengaged. We work together on this!
  • Physical Address. Remember that physical address you had to enter in your profile? Well, that is automatically embedded in all of your email correspondences by BizBrag.

Now that you have a clear understanding of what you need to do and what BizBrag does, you have no excuse to not do the right thing. Just to review: Spam is unsolicited email. If you follow the above guidelines, you will be in compliance and your business will be protected and clean. Thanks again for keeping BizBrag a great community!
