Reporting of spam activity and possible repercussions:
If DotMe receives a complaint, it will be forwarded to customer for a response and a complete explanation of the process taken to reach a resolution. If within twenty-four (24) hours there is no response indicating complete resolution, DotMe Inc may block traffic to and from the Domain name involved in the spam complaint (i.e. suspend the account) until DotMe Inc is convinced that the problem is resolved and preventative measures have been implemented to prevent the violation from recurring. If DotMe Inc receives repeat complaints indicating that a problem has not been resolved, DotMe Inc may suspend or cancel the offenders account, at their sole discretion.  DotMe Inc may charge customer and customer shall pay $1000.00 per valid spam complaint of which DotMe Inc is notified.

DotMe Inc also reserves the right to block traffic to and from the Domain name (ex) involved in hacking, and/or other malicious activity.

DotMe Inc also reserves the right to cancel an account of a known or alleged spammer without any notice at their sole discretion.
Receipt of Spam
DotMe Inc does not accept unsolicited commercial email as defined by California Business and Professions Code Section 17538.45.  DotMe Inc defines "spam mail" as any email addressed to a person with whom the sender does not have a prior relationship with, sent without the express consent of the recipient.  California has several laws regarding spam email that apply not only to DotMe Inc members, but also to anyone using DotMe inc to deliver mail. (including delivering mail to a DotMe Inc address) One of these laws provides for a $50/spam up to a $25,000 penalty/day for spamming, defining spam in the following manner: "It is addressed to a recipient with whom the initiator does not have an existing business or personal relationship" and "It is not sent at the request of or with the express consent of the recipient." These laws may be found at http://www.spamlaws.com/state/ca1.html  We reserve the right to press charges under the appropriate laws in addition to the charges we impose upon a user who has violated this acceptable use policy.
