Policy

Our company policy states (in part), "The equipment and resources (including telephony and computer equipment) of the company have been obtained for the benefit of the company and staff or other people have no right to use them for any other purpose." Therefore, no one has any right to use our computers for purposes not related to our business. This includes email, and connecting to our computers for the purposes of sending email that is not related to our business (as we define it).

Spam, also known as unsolicited commercial email (UCE) or junk mail, is not related to our business, and we choose not to receive it. In order to enforce this descision we use a variety of anti-Spam techniques. Occasionally, these may reject email from legitimate senders, these people may contact us again as described below.

Conversely, we do not send out spam ourselves. We use our address lists in accordance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance, we do not resell them. We do not purchase bulk mailing lists, in most cases we have an email address because the owner gave it to us. We will remove you from our mailing lists on request. We also secure our mail servers against unauthorised use by spammers. We welcome reports of abuse and will investigate and take action as appropriate.
