NYICD has established this Policy with respect to email messages containing NYICD content and submitted by third parties on its behalf to email recipients.
Initiator - The party that originates, transmits or procures the origination or transmission of an email message (can be more than one party.)
Advertiser - An initiator whose product, service, or website is advertised or promoted by the email message. For purposes of this policy, NYICD is the advertiser.
Recipient - The receiving individual or group of an email message.
Affirmative Consent - Agreement by an email address owner to receive future email messages, also known as opting in, whether in response to a clear and conspicuous request for such consent, or at the recipient's own initiative. Agreement can be indicated by providing an email address or by checking a box or by taking some other action, depending on the circumstances of the request.
List Owner - The party which owns the email list, usually the same party which originally solicited the recipient for his or her email address, and usually an initiator.
Uce - Unsolicited commercial email, also known as "spam"?.
"Legitimate Mass Commercial Emails"? or "opt-in emailings"?, are emails sent by the initiator to more than 250 recipients that have provided affirmative consent to receive emails from the list owner. All email messages sent to opt-in recipients must be limited to content that reasonably should be expected by the recipient, based on language supplied by the list owner at the time affirmative consent was received. All opt-in emailings must also clearly indicate the name and website of the list owner. Under this policy, opt-in emailings that meet this criteria are not considered uce.
"UCE"? is unsolicited bulk email that includes advertisements or solicitations, commercial or otherwise, regardless of content. NYICD prohibits the practice of mass emailing unwanted solicitations (uce) of any type, regardless of content. Without exception, uce is prohibited under this policy and will be considered a material breach of this policy. For purposes of this policy, the act of a list owner or initiator emailing to an email list that was not organically gathered is considered uce, unless the list owner has direct knowledge and proof that the list recipients provided affirmative consent to receive marketing messages from a third party.
"opt-out" is defined as the process recipients use to remove themselves from an email list. At all times, the list owner and/or initiator shall ensure that all email messages and initiator procedures comply with all state and federal laws, including, without limitation, the can-spam act, interstate communication requirements and all other applicable laws, as well as comply with the requirements of this policy. All opt out requests must follow a defined process for acceptance and to ensure all requests are handled properly. This process shall include, without limitation, the following steps:
In the event of a complaint from a recipient, the list owner and/or initiator shall immediately provide NYICD with access to all reasonable information, upon request, within 24 hours, in order to facilitate NYICD's response to such complaints. The following information must be collected and stored by the initiator, and made available upon request to NYICD:
By using the NYICD website, you consent to the practices described in this policy. NYICD reserves the right to amend this policy at any time without notice to you. You should review this policy from time to time for any such changes. NYICD further reserves the right to restrict your access to the NYICD website until you accept any amended policy.
