- Antispam Policy
A user will be added to our newsletter database when he/she leaves the “Yes. I want to subscribe to the MFSound newsletter” opIN, on our newsletter page, top bar or popup. After completing the registration process which involves clicking an activation link sent to his/her email account the user becomes a Newsletter Subscriber. Our email communication with our Newsletter Subscribers is based solely on their permission.
What Is Spam?
Spam is unsolicited email also known as Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE). It involves emails sent to users who:
- Have no association with the sender
- Have registered an account but not opted in to receive commercial emails
- Have previously opted in but then opted out of receiving commercial emails
It is also email communications without a valid reply-to address.
We do not send spam – ever. The goal of our existing email communications is to inform our Newsletter Subscribers of the new music releases which are published on a monthly or bi-weekly basis. Our Newsletters include the links to our new products, information about promotions and latest news from our artists including links to new podcasts or playlists.
We do not sell or distribute (for financial gain or for free) or otherwise disclose any partner or customer e-mail addresses to any third parties except when legally required.
Every newsletter contains an Unsubscribe link at the top of the message.
There are situations which by their own nature require us to send you emails. These include:
- Sending a message to your emailbox with the link to activate your subscription.
- Sending you emails concerning technical, legal and support matters.
Please make sure you do not flag MFSound as ‘Spam’ or ‘Unsolicited’ in your email application. When you register and do not find an activation email in your inbox, check your spam folder.
When you get in contact with us (for example by email or via a form on the websites) we will keep records of what is communicated. This is to ensure we have a record of our discussion for future reference and so we can improve the websites.
