Zero Spam Policy
We have a zero tolerance spam policy. Violation of this policy can result in suspension or cancellation of your account without a refund.
What Is Spam?
Spam is unsolicited email, also known as junk mail (received via email), or UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email). Virtually all of us have opened the inbox of an email account and found emails from an unknown sender. By sending email only to those who have requested to receive it, we at Vertex Lead System (VLS) are following accepted permission-based email guidelines.
What are the Laws Against Spam?
They exist. However, as with any body of laws, any individual State spam statutes can and will vary. The spam laws of each State can not only vary, but also have different definitions of unsolicited commercial email. Additionally, there may be various federal agencies keeping track of spam, including the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). At the Federal level, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 promulgates some attempt at a coherent and unified approach to unsolicited commercial email. Ultimately, it would be difficult to enforce spam law violations on any consistent or pervasive basis, so your own vigilance is your own best first line of defense. Beyond that, we protect you by ensuring that you are 100% in control of whether or not you ever hear from Vertex Lead System by email initially or in the future, as detailed in our No Tolerance policy below.
No Tolerance Anti-Spam Policy
WE HAVE A NO TOLERANCE SPAM POLICY. We do not email unless someone has filled out an opt-in in form or a web form expressing an interest in our information or products and/or services, or otherwise directly and proactively requesting it. News of the features and benefits of the system is spread through advertising, joint venture marketing, and word of mouth, so we are only building relationship with people who wish to learn more about what we have to offer and willingly subscribe to our content and contact through email.
