Terms and conditions of use
These terms and conditions of use require your agreement when ordering or renewing your list hosting with MailmanLists. They're mostly about respecting the data privacy of your mailing-list subscribers.
1. You agree to not send unsolicited email (spam)
If we receive a legitimate complaint from someone who has received spam from your list, your list will be suspended. To re-activate your list we'll need to be convinced that your list wasn't used for sending spam.
2. You agree to obtain subscribers' consent to be on your mailing list
As a list-owner, you must ensure that subscribers have asked to be on your mailing-list. Consent is implied when someone subscribes to a list via the list's public information page, or subscribes via email request.
3. You agree to not share your subscribers' names or email addresses
Subscribers' names / email addresses are in your care for the sole purpose of sending/receiving email to/from your mailing-list.
4. You agree to promptly unsubscribe subscribers who request it
Although subscribers can remove themselves from a list at anytime, there may be times when they ask you do it for them. You agree that that you'll remove them as soon as practical (or ask us to do it for you).
5. You agree to remove subscribers' posts from archives on request
If a subscriber asks you to remove a post from a list's archive, MailmanLists will do it for you. (It's not possible for list-owners or administrators to do this themselves).
6. You agree to not hold MailmanLists liable
MailmanLists applies accepted industry standards of security and make all reasonable efforts to keep its servers secure. It's impossible for anyone to guarantee 100% security of computer systems. Knowing this, you agree to not hold MailmanLists liable for any damage caused by breaches of data privacy regulations (or misuse of data) by you or any third party.
