What is Spam?

Spam is unsolicited e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups. In short, spam is "junk e-mail." As defined by H.R. 3113 and reported by the Subcommittee on Telecommunications, Trade, and Consumer Protection, unsolicited e-mail refers to any electronic message that:

  • advertises a product or service for profit,
  • is sent for other commercial purposes,
  • is sent to a recipient with whom the initiator does not have an existing business relationship, or
  • invites the recipient to view content on an internet website that is operated for a commercial purpose.

We recognize an e-mail as "spam" if:

  • the recipient is unable to easily unsubscribe from the e-mail list,
  • the transmission contains invalid or forged headers, invalid or non-existent domain names, or other means of deceptive addressing, or
  • in the opinion of the recipient, the transmission and reception of the message appears to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.

What is opt-in vs. opt-out e-mail?

Opt-in e-mail is a web marketing term for promotional e-mail that recipients have previously requested by signing up via a website or special ad banner. Typically, web users are invited to sign up for promotional information about one or more product or service categories. Those who sign up have thus "opted in." Opt-out e-mail is a web marketing term for promotional e-mail that recipients have not previously requested by signing up. However, for OJCommerce e-mail distributions, the contact's e-mail address must have been provided to OJCommerce by that individual via a OJCommerce website, conference, or trade show. Individuals who have willingly given OJCommerce their contact information via these methods are automatically added to e-mail distribution lists that benefit that individual. Although the individual is added to the e-mail distribution list on the concept of opt-out, the individual is ALWAYS given the opportunity to easily unsubscribe - without being hassled.

What is OJCommerce doing to become "anti-spam?

OJCommerce hopes that individuals find its e-mail communications informative and helpful. However, OJCommerce respects the recipient's wishes for either receiving or not receiving e-mail communications from us. Therefore, OJCommerce has adopted the following as procedures for all of its e-mail distribution communications:

Valid addressing

The e-mail communication will be sent to a single recipient with the intention of it being received by only one individual. The sender address will be a valid OJCommerce e-mail address that is monitored by a OJCommerce employee. Therefore the sender address can also be sent e-mail. The sender address will be relevant to the content of the message being sent.

Valid headers/subjects

The e-mail communication will always have a header or subject that is appropriate and true to the content provided in the communication. The header or subject will not be used inappropriately or give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.

Valid contact information

Any contact information in the e-mail communication will be real and relevant to OJCommerce.com

Valid subscribe/unsubscribe service

Each email sent through the OJCommerce system contains a link that allows subscribers to unsubscribe from receiving emails from us. Each email contains an easy and automated way for you to unsubscribe. You may also change your expressed interests at any time. If you wish to unsubscribe or change your interests, simply follow the instructions at the bottom of any email. If you have received an unwanted email sent by the OJCommerce system, please see above for options on how to handle and report an issue. The e-mail communication will always have the "OJCommerce Subscription" information at the end. OJCommerce's website will always provide information on how to subscribe or unsubscribe to any of its e-mail distribution lists. The process to subscribe and unsubscribe is simple, real, and requires only a few seconds. Wojappliances.com also has a strict privacy policy posted on all of our websites, which addresses the fact that information collected by Wojappliances.com Systems, Inc. is not sold, but used internally for marketing and telemarketing campaigns.

Relevant and beneficial information for the recipient

Wojappliances.com attempts to provide honest information about our company, solutions, products, services, or other information which we feel will be in some way relevant and beneficial to the recipient.
