AOL Unsolicited Bulk Communications Policy

AOL does not authorise the use of its proprietary computers and computer network (the "AOL Network") to accept, transmit or distribute unsolicited bulk communications (including email) sent to AOL members. Email sent, or caused to be sent, to or through the AOL Network that makes use of or contains invalid or forged headers, invalid or non-existent domain names or other means of deceptive addressing will be considered unacceptable.

Any attempt to send or cause such communications to be sent to or through the AOL Network is unauthorised. Similarly, email that is relayed from any third party's mail servers without the permission of that third party, or which employs similar techniques to hide or obscure the source of the email, shall constitute an unauthorised use of the AOL Network.

AOL does not authorise anyone to send communications or cause communications to be sent to the AOL Network that violate AOL's Conditions of Service. AOL does not authorise the harvesting or collection of Screen Names from the AOL service for the purpose of sending unsolicited communications. AOL reserves the right to take all legal and technical steps available to prevent unsolicited bulk email or other unauthorised communications from entering, utilising or remaining within the AOL Network. Nothing in this policy is intended to grant any right to transmit or send email to, or through, the AOL Network. AOL's failure to enforce this policy in every instance in which it might have application does not amount to a waiver of AOL's rights.

Unauthorised use of the AOL Network in connection with the transmission of unsolicited bulk communications, including the transmission of counterfeit email, may result in civil and/or criminal action against the sender.
