6. Best Practices

Abuse rates

Certain types of content may cause higher-than-average abuse rates. In general, hard bounce rates should be under 5%, and spam complaint rates should be less than 0.1%. For that reason, SuperOffice may review, suspend, throttle, or disable accounts that exceed these rates. The following activities prove to be over-represented among offers that exceed the average rates:

  • Online trading, day trading tips, or stock market related content
  • Daily horoscope reports
  • Mortgages and loans
  • Nutritional, herbal, and vitamin supplements
  • Adult Entertainment/Novelty Items
  • Real estate
  • Services that support programmatically sending mail on behalf of third parties without creating or reviewing the content

Spam and Best Practices

As an email service provider, SuperOffice consider that it is our responsibility to be extra vigilant about preventing spam-related abuse. It’s also in our best interest to keep the system clean, because our reputation and deliverability depend on it. For that reason we provide, and may update from time to time, articles outlining sending best practices. You should only use SuperOffice in accordance with these best practices, and we may suspend or terminate your account if you violate them.

7. Infringement and termination of Service

To the extent a customer uses such services for advertising, sending electronic messages or for the creation and hosting of, or for posting material on external-facing websites, each customer must comply with this Policy and applicable laws and regulations.

If SuperOffice receives a notice alleging that material on a customer’s instance of an External-Facing Service infringes another party’s intellectual property, SuperOffice may disable that customer instance of the External Facing Service or remove allegedly infringing material. If SuperOffice receives more than one such notice for the same customer, SuperOffice reserves the right to immediately terminate such customer’s subscriptions to the External Facing Services as deemed necessary by SuperOffice to ensure continued protection, availability of service and lawful processing of data.

8. Changes to this Policy

SuperOffice may change this Policy by posting an updated version of the Policy at SuperOffice Trust Center and such updates will be effective upon posting. SuperOffice will notify Customers in relevant channels.
