EarthLink Policies and Agreements

EARTHLINK, INC. COMMERCIAL EMAIL POLICY

1. Scope of Policy

EarthLink, Inc.'s ("EarthLink's") Commercial Email Policy is to be construed broadly to prohibit all forms of unsolicited and/or deceptive commercial email on the terms set forth below. As used herein, "email" refers broadly to all forms of Internet communication, including but not limited to emails, instant messages, and text messages. As used herein, "EarthLink email address" means any email address or username corresponding to or including a domain owned by EarthLink, Inc. (an "EarthLink Domain"). The EarthLink Domains are set forth below at Section VI. However, the list of EarthLink Domains set forth below does not purport to be a complete or exclusive list. The sending of an email to an EarthLink email address necessarily entails access to, use of, and transmission into the "EarthLink Network," as that term is defined and used below.

2. EarthLink's Proprietary Network; Policy Covers Outgoing and Incoming spam

EarthLink owns the computers, mail servers, and other equipment that make up its Internet network (the "EarthLink Network"). Because the EarthLink Network is the private property of EarthLink, EarthLink has the right to implement and enforce rules governing the use of the EarthLink Network. These rules apply to anyone who uses or accesses the EarthLink Network, including EarthLink Members who send and receive email using the Network and non-EarthLink Members who send email into the EarthLink Network (i.e., who send email to an EarthLink email address or username) or otherwise use or access the EarthLink Network. The prohibitions set forth in this Commercial Email Policy supplement the rules and prohibitions set forth in the EarthLink Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"). Conduct that violates the AUP may give rise to civil and/or criminal claims by EarthLink even if that conduct is not specifically prohibited in this Commercial Email Policy.

3. Prohibited Conduct

EarthLink prohibits the transmission of any and all unsolicited commercial emails ("spam") into, out of, or through the EarthLink Network. This prohibition includes the sending of spam by any Internet user to an EarthLink email address. EarthLink also prohibits the transmission into, out of, or through the EarthLink Network of any commercial email in which the sender has employed fraudulent or deceptive measures to disguise or obscure the actual source or sender of the email, including but not limited to: (a) the use of forged, false, or modified headers; (b) the use of forged ("spoofed"), invalid, or nonexistent "from" addresses; and/or (c) the intentional use without authorization of a third-party's mail servers or computer equipment to send or relay the commercial email ("third party relay" or "server hijacking"). In addition, EarthLink prohibits the transmission into, out of, or through the EarthLink Network of any commercial email in which the sender has used deceptive, misleading, off-topic, or gibberish language, text, or characters in the subject line or the text of the email, a primary effect of which is to disguise the actual nature or subject of the email. Finally, in relation to any commercial email sent using Internet resources other than the EarthLink Network, EarthLink prohibits the use of or reference to any EarthLink email address or EarthLink Domain in a manner that does or might create the erroneous impression that the email was sent into, out of, or through the EarthLink Network, including but not limited to any reference in the "from" line to an EarthLink email address.

4. Effect of Violation

Violation of this Commercial Email Policy by any person or business entity represents unauthorized access to, trespass upon, and/or use of the EarthLink Network and results in harm to EarthLink. Such violations give rise to civil causes of action in EarthLink's favor pursuant to a variety of federal and state laws, including but not limited to the Computer Fraud & Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. 1030 et seq.), the Georgia Computer Systems Protection Act (O.C.G.A. 16-9-90 et seq.), and common law trespass. Violations of this Commercial Email Policy may also result in criminal sanctions against the involved entities and individuals.

Violation of this Commercial Email Policy may also be actionable under the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (the "CAN-SPAM Act"). However, the commission of conduct that violates EarthLink's Commercial Email Policy may result in civil damages and criminal sanctions even if the conduct is not otherwise prohibited by the CAN-SPAM Act.

5. Reservation of EarthLink's Rights

EarthLink reserves the right in its sole discretion to take all legal steps and/or employ all technical measures that EarthLink may deem necessary in order to prevent and/or stop violations of the rules governing the use of the EarthLink Network, including the prohibitions set forth in this Commercial Email Policy and the other provisions of EarthLink's AUP. EarthLink's failure to enforce this policy in every instance in which it might have application or in any particular instance as against any particular violator shall not constitute a waiver of EarthLink's rights and remedies.
