What is eAppTrack?

Products under the eAppTrack platform family include eSalesTrack, eFaciliTrack, eFreshTrack, eFireTrack, eMediTrack, ePunchTrack, among others. All the products utilizing the eAppTrack platform apply to this document.
What is Spam?
According to Spamhaus, “The word “Spam” as applied to Email means “Unsolicited Bulk Email””. Further, “Unsolicited means that the Recipient has not granted verifiable permission for the message to be sent. Bulk means that the message is sent as part of a larger collection of messages, all having substantively identical content.” “A message is Spam only if it is both Unsolicited and Bulk.” eAppTrack has adopted this definition of Spam. eAppTrack may not be used for the sending of unsolicited email messages.
All messages sent by means of eAppTrack shall be in compliance with the “CAN-SPAM Act” and eAppTrack’s Terms and Conditions. You agree to represent yourself and/or your organization accurately and will not impersonate any other person, whether actual or fictitious. You are the sole or designated “sender” (as that term is defined in the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 and any rules or regulations adopted under such act) of any message sent by you using eAppTrack. In addition, for messages sent to Canadian email accounts, you are the sole person sending or causing or permitting the message to be sent, within the meaning of Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation, S.C. 2010, c. 23.
