EMAIL ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
All Users are required to comply with this Acceptable Use Policy when sending emails through the System of Services. If you breach the terms of this Acceptable Use Policy, we may suspend or terminate your account without notice, as your action can have a serious impact on Our System and Services as a whole. We may also suspend or terminate accounts according to Our Terms of Service if We believe any behavior, content, or other factors pose a threat to Our System or Services
Please remember that ultimately We are enforcing this Acceptable Use Policy to protect you, and to help ensure that your deliverability rate remains high.
An email sent via the System must comply with the following requirements:
1. You can only send to recipients who have opted in to receive email from you.
2. You must include our unsubscribe link; it's inserted automatically at the bottom of all emails sent from our System.
3. You must not falsify your contact information or subject line.
4. In addition to CAN-SPAM rules, you must comply with the anti-spam, privacy and data protection laws of the countries your recipients live in.

In general, hard bounce rates should be under 5%, and spam complaint rates should be less than 0.1%. For that reason, We may closely review, suspend, throttle, or disable accounts that exceed these rates.
We exclude all liability for our actions taken in response to breaches of this Acceptable Use Policy. The responses described in this Acceptable Use Policy are not limited, and We may take any other action We reasonably deem appropriate.
