When it comes to compliance with rules, spamming is a particularly critical issue. What is spam anyway? A loose definition is any email that has been sent to someone without his or her permission. Spam is also called "unsolicited", "junk" or "unwanted" because the recipient has not requested it and did not want it. Follow our email marketing blog to learn about spam-free successful email marketing.
Mailigen prohibits users from sending unsolicited commercial emails in any form. If you use Mailigen services to spam, we will terminate your Mailigen account immediately. What's more, we will not refund any monies you may have paid for those services.

Keeping Free of Spam
Mailigen helps you make sure you are compliant with anti-spam rules:
- New client verification: To send your first email campaign to more than 20 recipients, you must upgrade from a trial account to at least a regular paid account. During an upgrade, Mailigen performs a review of your account to make sure you are compliant with their terms and regulations by means of a verification questionnaire.
- Mass contacts upload: Whenever you upload contacts by using the Upload File or Copy/Paste from Excel options, Mailigen asks you to certify that users have opted into the list. If Mailigen receives a complaint that you have spammed someone, Mailigen will ask you furnish proof that the recipient has opted into your list. In case this information cannot be provided your account will e terminated.
