Purplecow.com ("COW") does not authorize the use of its proprietary computers and computer network (the COW Network") to accept, transmit or distribute
unsolicited bulk e-mail sent from the Internet to COW members. In addition, Internet e-mail sent, or caused to be sent, to or through the COW Network that
makes use of or contains invalid or forged headers, invalid or non-existent domain names or other means of deceptive addressing will be deemed to be
counterfeit. Any attempt to send or cause such counterfeit e-mail to be sent to or through the COW Network is unauthorized. Similarly, e-mail that is relayed
from any third party's mail servers without the permission of that third party, or which employs similar techniques to hide or obscure the source of the
e-mail, is also an unauthorized use of the COW Network. COW does not authorize anyone to send e-mail or cause e-mail to be sent to the COW Network that
violates COW's Terms of Service. COW does not authorize the harvesting or collection of screen names from the COW service for the purpose of sending
unsolicited e-mail. COW reserves the right to take all legal and technical steps available to prevent unsolicited bulk e-mail or other unauthorized e-mail from
entering, utilizing or remaining within the COW Network. Nothing in this policy is intended to grant any right to transmit or send e-mail to, or through, the
COW Network. COW's failure to enforce this policy in every instance in which it might have application does not amount to a waiver of COW's rights.
Unauthorized use of the COW Network in connection with the transmission of unsolicited bulk e-mail, including the transmission of
counterfeit e-mail, may result in civil and criminal penalties against the sender, including those provided by the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. § 1030 et seq.);
the Virginia Computer Crimes Act (Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-152.2 et seq.)
(amended effective July 1, 1999); and the
Washington Commercial Electronic Mail Act ( Wash. Rev. Code Chapter 19.190 et seq.).
