What is spam?
Spam, also known as junk mail, is an unsolicited commercial email message, commonly sent in bulk email messages.

Bulk means that the message is sent as part of a larger collection of messages, all having substantively identical content. The term "spamming" refers to transmitting, distributing or delivering any unwanted commercial e-mail correspondence, especially in mass quantities, through the electronic means of communication.
Measures to prevent spam
We take the following measures to prevent spam:
We do not modify the headers of any message in such a way that purposefully makes the origin of the message unclear.
All undeliverable addresses are removed from all future mailings after no more than 3 bounces.
All mailings provide clear and simple to follow instructions for opting-out of future mailings, and all reasonable attempts are made to facilitate the removal of a mailing list subscriber at their request.
