150Alliance Anti-Spam Policy
Last Updated: June 18, 2015
150Alliance.ca is owned and operated by Community Foundations of Canada (“CFC”), and is dedicated to encouraging engagement and action around Canada’s sesquicentennial. CFC, its 150Alliance initiative, its members, and their respective affiliates, successors and assigns are collectively referred to in this Anti-Spam Policy as “150Alliance”.
150Alliance provides its members and others access via use of 150Alliance.ca to a digital platform using Igloo™ software to enable collaboration on projects concerning the sesquicentennial.
150Alliance works to comply with Canada’s anti-spam legislation, which legislation is referred to informally as, “CASL”.
Among other activities prohibited or regulated by CASL, 150Alliance is concerned about CASL’s provisions prohibiting the sending of unsolicited bulk or individual commercial electronic messages (“CEMs” – as defined in CASL) by email, social media or other electronic means. 150Alliance does not want its members or others using its digital platform to engage in the sending, transmission or delivery of non-compliant CEMs contrary to CASL.
- TO EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TRANSMIT NON COMPLIANT CEMs; OR
- IN VIOLATION OF CASL LEGISLATION OR ANY OTHER RULES, CODE OF CONDUCT OR GUIDELINES (SUCH AS THIS ANTI-SPAM POLICY) POSTED TO IGLOO™ BY 150ALLIANCE.
You will not use 150Alliance.ca to send, transmit or deliver non-compliant CEMs any person or organization.
Certain practices, such as those described below, are often associated with the transmission of non-compliant CEMs or practices prohibited by CASL:
- the use of invalid or forged headers;
- the use of invalid or non-existent domain names;
- the employ of any technique to otherwise misrepresent, hide or obscure any information that identifies the point of origin of any e-mail message or the transmission path of that e-mail message;
- the use of other means of deceptive addressing;
- the use of a third party's internet domain name without that third party’s permission,
- relaying any e-mail messages from or through a third party's equipment, without the permission of the third party;
- the inclusion of false or misleading information in the subject line or body of any e-mail message; and
- harvesting of personal information, including personal email addresses.
150Alliance may, but is not required to use spam filters (to block e-mail messages containing certain types of content or from certain IP addresses, mail servers or domains) and other technological means to reduce or eliminate SPAM without giving you notice of 150Alliance’s use of any such means.
150Alliance does not provide legal advice and you should seek advice from your own legal counsel on concerning compliance with CASL.
