"Spam" refers electronic communications that are unsolicited and sent in bulk, usually for a commercial purpose.
Spam is an irritant to regular users and a significant problem for many organisations. Technical measures are the principal way of dealing with spam but they can be usefully supplemented by legal measures.
The anti-spam policy gives a loose definition of spam, and warns that spam-filtering technologies will be used to screen incoming electronic communications. It also warns that, in some circumstances, legitimate messages may be filtered-out. In other words, those sending emails and other electronic messages to you should not assume that they will be received.
The policy also includes a brief statement on user-created spam. However, it assumes that the terms and conditions governing the use of messaging services (and other services that may be used to generate spam) will be governed by separate terms and conditions.
