SPAM POLICY

In this Policy, “Spam” includes one or more unsolicited commercial electronic messages to which the Spam Act 2003 applies, and derivations of the word “Spam” have corresponding meanings.

Codes of Practice

The Internet Industry Codes of Practice registered with the Australian Communications and Media Authority (“ACMA”) set out how internet service providers, such as Techno Group, and email service providers must address the sources of Spam within their own networks. They also requires internet service providers and email service providers to give end-users information about how to deal with Spam, and informed choice about their filtering options.

Suspension or Termination

This Policy prohibits you from using your Internet Service to send Spam. If you breach this prohibition, Techno Group may suspend or terminate your Internet Service. The circumstances in which we may do so are set out below.

Reducing Spam

You can reduce the amount of Spam you receive if you:

  • do not open emails from dubious sources;
  • do not reply to Spam or click on links, including ‘unsubscribe’ facilities, in Spam;
  • do not accept Spam-advertised offers;
  • block incoming mail from known Spammers;
  • do not post your email address on publicly available sites or directories.If you must do so, look for options, such as tick boxes, that allow you to opt out of receiving further offers or information.;
  • do not disclose your personal information to any online organisation unless they agree (in their terms and conditions or privacy policy) not to pass your information on to other parties;
  • use separate email addresses for different purposes, such as a personal email address for friends and family and a business email address for work;
  • install a Spam filter on your computer to filter or block Spam. We strongly recommend that you install a Spam filter on your computer, even if you receive a Spam filtering service from Techno Group. Information on the availability of anti-Spam software for end-users is available at the Internet Industry Association (IIA) website.
  • report any Spam you receive to Techno Group or the ACMA (see “Complaints” below); and
  • visit the “ACMA website” or “Fight SPAM on the Internet website” for more information on ways to reduce the volume of Spam you receive, including how to:
  • reduce Spam if you operate a website; and
  • avoid becoming an accidental Spammer.
Spam filtering for Techno Mail subscribers

If you subscribe to Techno Group’s Techno Mail we subject all email messages addressed to you to through our Spam filter.

Techno Group’s Spam filtering service makes use of SpamAssassin filtering technology. The application attempts to identify Spam using text analysis and several internet-based real time blacklists. Using a rule base, it uses a wide range of heuristic tests on mail headers and body text to score the email. If the email scores 6 or more, the email will be delivered to you, but the subject line of the message will be changed to denote that the email has been classified as Spam.

Loss of legitimate email

SPAM filtering services are an effective means of reducing the amount of Spam you receive. However, they will not eliminate all Spam and there is a risk that legitimate email might occasionally be incorrectly classified as Spam and therefore lost.

Your Spam Obligations

You agree that you will use your Internet Service in compliance with the Spam Act 2003 and will not engage in practices which would result in a breach of the Act. In particular, you agree that you will not use, attempt to use or allow your Internet Service to be used to:

  • send, allow to be sent, or assist in the sending of Spam;
  • use or distribute any software designed to harvest email addresses;
  • host any device or service that allows email to be sent between third parties not under your authority or control; or
  • otherwise breach the Spam Act 2003 or the Spam Regulations 2004 of the Commonwealth, (your “Spam Obligations”).

You agree to use your reasonable best endeavours to secure any device or network within your control against being used in breach of your Spam Obligations by third parties, including where appropriate:

  • the installation and maintenance of antivirus software;
  • the installation and maintenance of firewall software; and
  • the application of operating system and application software patches and updates.

We may scan any IP address ranges allocated to you for your use with your Internet Service in order to detect the presence of open or otherwise misconfigured mail and proxy servers. If we detect open or misconfigured mail or proxy servers we may suspend or terminate your Internet Service.

10.1 Complaints about content

If you have a complaint about content accessible using your Internet Service you may contact the ACMA by filling out an online complaint form at acma.gov.au, emailing online@acma.gov.au or faxing your complaint to the ACMA Content Assessment Hotline Manager on (02) 9334 7799. Please note that all complaints to ACMA must be in writing. You may also report a complaint about content by emailing us at support@techno.com.au.

10.2 Complaints about Spam

All internet and email service providers are required by the Internet Industry Code of Practice to maintain an “abuse@” email address (or other email address as notified by the service provider) to allow end users to report Spam. If you think you have been sent Spam by an Techno Group subscriber, you may report it by following the procedure set out in our [Fact Sheet: How to Report Spam. You may escalate a report to a complaint by following the procedure set out in our [Fact Sheet: How to Complain About Spam. If you think you have been sent Spam by a subscriber of another internet or email service provider, you may report it by emailing that service provider at their “abuse@” email address or other email address as notified by the service provider for that purpose.

You can report or make a complaint about Spam you have received by contacting the ACMA by filling out an online complaint form at acma.gov.au or via the ACMA Spam Reporting System SpamMatters.

You may also make complaints to other bodies about Spam where the content is in some other way offensive or contrary to law. For example, you may complain to the ACMA about Spam that contains content you believe is offensive or relates to online gambling.

You can report a Spam message that contains fraudulent or misleading and deceptive content (for example, email scams) to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) via the ACCC website by phoning 1300 302 502 (business hours, Monday to Friday).

The Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) also deals with certain complaints about the contents of Spam messages, particularly with regard to fraudulent conduct by Australian businesses. The ASIC website outlines the types of complaints they deal with, and has an online complaint form: www.asic.gov.au (click on ‘Complaining About Companies or People’).

If you are concerned that your personal information has been misused to send you Spam, the Federal Privacy Commissioner recommends that you complain to the organisation first, especially if you know how to contact it and have had dealings with it in the past about other goods or services. If the matter is not resolved adequately, you can visit the Federal Privacy Commissioner’s website for details on how to make a complaint.

11. SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION

Techno Group reserves the right to suspend your Internet Service if you are in breach of this Policy, provided that we will first take reasonable steps to contact you and give you the opportunity to rectify the breach within a reasonable period. What is reasonable in this context will depend on the severity of the problems being caused by the breach (for example, if you commit a serious or continuing breach, it may be reasonable to immediately suspend your Internet Service without notice to you).

If we notify you of a breach of your Spam Obligations, we will, at your request and to the extent we are reasonably able, supply you with information as to the nature of open relays and suggested resolutions to assist you to comply with your Spam Obligations.

Our right to suspend your Internet Service applies regardless of whether the breach is committed intentionally, through misconfiguration, or by other means not authorised by you including but not limited to through a Trojan horse or virus.

If your Internet Service is suspended and the grounds upon which it was suspended are not corrected by you within seven days, we may terminate your Internet Service.
