Anti-Spam Policy

SPAM

In the context of electronic messaging, spam refers to unsolicited, bulk or indiscriminate messages, typically sent for a commercial purpose.

GMI has a zero-tolerance spam policy.

Automated spam filtering

GMI's messaging systems automatically scan all incoming email and other messages, and filter-out messages that appear to be spam.

Problems with spam filtering

No message filtering system is 100% accurate, and from time to time legitimate messages will be filtered-out by GMI’s systems.

If you believe this has happened to a message you have sent, please advise the message recipient by another means.

You can reduce the risk of a message being caught by the spam filters by sending the message in plain text (i.e. no HTML), removing any attachments, and ensuring that your messages are scanned for malware before dispatch.

User spam

GMI may, on some of its servers, provide a facility that enables users to send email messages / private messages to others. Users must not use this facility to send unsolicited, bulk or indiscriminate messages, whether or not for a commercial purpose.

Receipt of unwanted messages from GMI

In the unlikely event that you receive any message from GMI or sent using GMI’s systems that may be considered to be spam, please contact GMI using the details below and the matter will be investigated.

Changes to this anti-spam policy

GMI may amend this anti-spam policy at any time by publishing a new version on this website.
