NO SPAM/UCE Policy

This policy applies to all Ruffnet Zrt. Network users. Any kind of SPAM from our network is strictly prohibited, clients found in this act will be sanctioned immediately.

Inappropriate E-Mail Activities

Commercial e-mail: Defined as sending unsolicited commercial e-mails. This is prohibited. You are not permitted to use your Ruffnet Zrt. service to send unsolicited commercial e-mail. Using an e-mail address hosted anywhere on Ruffnet Zrt. servers to collect responses from unsolicited commercial e-mail is prohibited. This includes using a throw-away, free e-mail account to promote your Ruffnet Zrt. account and redirectors for the same account.
Mail Bombing: Defined as sending large volumes of unsolicited e-mail to individuals from your Ruffnet Zrt. service. This is strictly prohibited.
Harassment: Defined as sending threatening or harassing e-mail after being requested to stop, is prohibited. Extremely threatening or harassing e-mail never is allowed.

Inappropriate Newsgroup/Forums Activities

Newsgroup/Forums Spamming: Defined as excessive cross-posting, or posting the same article to several Newsgroup/Forums. This is prohibited. Generally accepted standards allow no more than 15 newsgroups, or cross-postings, for a single article or substantially similar articles. Such articles may be canceled. You are not allowed to use your Ruffnet Zrt. based mail facilities to SPAM the Newsgroup/Forums.
Off topic or inappropriate postings: There is no restriction on content, except as defined by each Newsgroup/Forums. Continued posting of off-topic articles is prohibited. Please note that commercial advertisements are off-topic in the vast majority of Newsgroup/Forums.

Fine/Penalties

Should you violate Ruffnet Zrt.’s NO SPAM/UCE Policy, Ruffnet Zrt. will charge you, as a client, 200 EUR per hour (minimum one hour) for the time it takes us to “clean-up” your SPAM. This shall include but not be limited to the time required to answer e-mail from angry recipients of your SPAM and/or repair of a damaged server due to the “Mail Bombing” or other actions of the angry recipients in retaliation of your SPAM.

We take a very dim view of SPAM. It is one of the most annoying things encountered on the Internet. Any Ruffnet Zrt. client found to be spamming will have his/her account terminated immediately – no questions asked (we will investigate the report thoroughly before terminating any account). There is no warning or a second chance.

If you know of any Ruffnet Zrt. client that is or might be violating this policy, please send a message or, if possible, forward the SPAM or UCE in full (including headers) to abuse@ruffnet.hu
