NYIAD has established this Policy with respect to email messages containing NYIAD content and submitted by third parties on its behalf to email recipients.

Definition of General Terms Used

Definition Of Legitimate Mass Commercial Email

"Legitimate Mass Commercial Emails"? or "opt-in emailings"?, are emails sent by the initiator to more than 250 recipients that have provided affirmative consent to receive emails from the list owner. All email messages sent to opt-in recipients must be limited to content that reasonably should be expected by the recipient, based on language supplied by the list owner at the time affirmative consent was received. All opt-in emailings must also clearly indicate the name and website of the list owner. Under this policy, opt-in emailings that meet this criteria are not considered uce.

Definition Of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE)

"UCE"? is unsolicited bulk email that includes advertisements or solicitations, commercial or otherwise, regardless of content. NYIAD prohibits the practice of mass emailing unwanted solicitations (uce) of any type, regardless of content. Without exception, uce is prohibited under this policy and will be considered a material breach of this policy. For purposes of this policy, the act of a list owner or initiator emailing to an email list that was not organically gathered is considered uce, unless the list owner has direct knowledge and proof that the list recipients provided affirmative consent to receive marketing messages from a third party.

Definition Of Opt-Out And Opt-Out Requirements

"opt-out" is defined as the process recipients use to remove themselves from an email list. At all times, the list owner and/or initiator shall ensure that all email messages and initiator procedures comply with all state and federal laws, including, without limitation, the can-spam act, interstate communication requirements and all other applicable laws, as well as comply with the requirements of this policy. All opt out requests must follow a defined process for acceptance and to ensure all requests are handled properly. This process shall include, without limitation, the following steps:
