Our View on Spam

Roller Network LLC takes the position on a message as UBE or spam is based on the consent of the receiving party, not about content. Any action that causes any of our servers, networks, or transit to be blacklisted will be viewed as a violation of this acceptable use policy. Roller Network reserves the right to assess cleanup and remediation fees of no less than $1,000.00 per message or attempted recipient (as defined by an SMTP “RCPT TO”) when warranted by an account holder’s actions or inaction. Accounts suspended or terminated for AUP violations are not eligible for a refund.
