This Spam Policy ("Policy") governs the usage of Gizmo Beach's products and services ("Services"). This Policy
is incorporated by reference into each contract Gizmo Beach enters into with a customer ("Customer", "Member", "You", "Your") for the use of such
Services. Every Customer is subject to this Policy, and by virtue of using Gizmo Beach Services, agrees to be bound by this Policy.
Gizmo Beach may modify this Policy at any time with or without notice. Any modification is effective upon posting on our website and continued
use of Gizmo Beach Services constitutes the Customer's acceptance of such modifications.
Policy violations are determined by Gizmo Beach in its sole and absolute discretion.
Gizmo Beach does not authorize the use of its proprietary computers and computer network to accept, transmit or distribute unsolicited
bulk e-mail sent from the Internet to Gizmo Beach members.
In addition, Internet e-mail sent, or caused to be sent, to or through Gizmo Beach
services that makes use of or contains invalid or forged headers, invalid or non-existent domain names or other means of deceptive
addressing will be deemed to be counterfeit. Any attempt to send or cause such counterfeit e-mail to be sent to or through Gizmo Beach
services is unauthorized.
Similarly, e-mail 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 e-mail, is also an unauthorized use of
Gizmo Beach services. Gizmo Beach does not authorize anyone to send e-mail or cause e-mail to be sent to the Gizmo Beach Network that violates
Gizmo Beach's Terms and Conditions or Gizmo Beach's Spam Policy.
Gizmo Beach reserves the right to disable/remove any email services, such as forwarding, catch-all, or autoresponders, should Gizmo Beach
receive SPAM/abuse complaints associated with the said email services.
Gizmo Beach reserves the right to take all legal and technical steps available to
prevent unsolicited bulk e-mail or other unauthorized e-mail from entering, utilizing or remaining within Gizmo Beach services.
Nothing in this policy is intended to grant any right to transmit or send e-mail to, or through, Gizmo Beach services.
Gizmo Beach's failure to enforce this policy in every instance in which it might have application does not amount to a waiver of
Gizmo Beach's rights.
