We do not want to receive bulk uninvited solicitations by email ("Junk Email") to any addresses ending in the domain By "bulk" I mean the practice of sending more than three identical or similar messages to addressees of who one or more have email accounts affiliated with our organization. This practice costs us money due to telecommunications charges and the time spent by our affiliates processing this email. If you send us any Junk Email other than on the terms of the offer set out in the following seven points, we will take this to mean that you plan to use what was offered you without paying for it.

Actions available to us include taking proceedings against you for negligence or breach of contract, which may result in substantial damages being awarded against you by a court. The unauthorized use of our computing facilities may even be a crime. If you send us any Junk Email without express prior written consent from me or an officer of our organization this will be taken as your acceptance of this offer. Each individual affiliate may give you permission in writing to send email to him or her.
