As a cloud-based SaaS company, users need to follow any rules, regulations, laws and guidelines in relation to the use of Clickback’s software agreement.

No SPAM Permitted
a) What is Spam?
Spam is electronic commercial messages sent to individuals that
- Do not have provisions for recipients to ‘opt-out’ or unsubscribe from future mailings, which is in violation of CAN-SPAM Act
- Are unsolicited, meaning – a message emailed to an individual that (a) you do not have an existing business relationship with, OR (b) have not consented to receive email correspondence from, which is in violation of Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)
Clickback does not permit SPAM. All users must comply with all laws and regulations applicable to large-volume or commercial emailing and must not violate CAN-SPAM and CASL, or any other law.
b) Violators Must Be Reported
Any user that violates or is found guilty of using Clickback for spam-related purposes by failing to obey CAN-SPAM and CASL laws will be immediately terminated from using our software. In accordance with our AUP and ASP policy, users agree not to use Clickback to break any local, provincial/state, federal or international laws or regulations (including but not limited to those related to spamming, e-commerce, obscenity, defamation or privacy); or to encourage or facilitate any illegal activities; or to harass, threaten or embarrass any person or organization; or to promote MLM (multi-level marketing) or Ponzi schemes; or to distribute illegal, pornographic or potentially harmful or offensive information, photos, software or materials, or include links to Web pages containing any such items. If you know or suspect anyone that may be in violation of this, please notify us at once by emailing abuse (at) clickback (dot) com.
c) Proper Use of Software: Best Practices
Clickback accepts targeted B2B (Business-to-Business) contacts or cold data in its software that allows a user to upload an acquired third-party targeted contact list from a reputable data provider in an effort to send emails to these cold contacts for targeted B2B lead generation purposes.
User agrees to use Clickback’s software to email people who meet at least one of the following criteria:
- The recipient provided his or her email address to a reputable third-party data provider and their contact information was legally purchased, rented or acquired for the intent to email these targeted B2B contacts.
- A third-party reputable data provider has added recipients and their contact information, including email addresses, in their database and was purchased, rented or acquired from a reputable data provider with the intent to email these targeted B2B contacts.
User agrees to include its physical address in all email communications, as required by the U.S. CAN-SPAM legislation, and to adhere to the full CAN-SPAM and Canadian CASL guidelines as well as any other applicable local, provincial/state, federal and international laws of the countries of the recipients that are being mailed to.
