About Spam 
"Spam" is the colloquial term used for "Unsolicited Broadcast E-mail" (UBE) or "Unsolicited Commercial E-mail" (UCE). More simply, it is also known as "junk e-mail". No matter what term you use, spam is pretty easy to identify. If you are a marketer, just ask yourself this simple question: Did the recipients to whom I am sending broadcast e-mail messages clearly and unambiguously ask to receive messages from me? If the answer to this question is "no" or you aren't certain, then chances are that you are guilty of spamming.

Ever since e-mail became the "killer app" of the internet in the 1990s, spam has been a hot – and often emotional – issue. Although opinions on the subject vary, there is near unanimous agreement that spam is a serious problem and presents challenges for marketers, internet service providers (ISPs) and the public alike. Concerns about spam include the nuisance factor; loss of privacy; transfer of the cost burden from senders to recipients; and the unproductive use of bandwidth on the internet.

Our Philosophy 
DSS's Anti-Spam Policy is based on the simple belief that permission is in the eyes of the beholder. We believe that there can be only one judge of whether marketing messages are permission-based: the recipient. Marketing is about communicating with people, and people can't be easily reduced to a set of formulas or policy statements. If consumers receive e-mail messages that are unwelcome, then they will feel that they have been spammed. End of story. But if you work hard to respect the wishes of your customers in everything you do – even when your customers are mistaken – you will be able to maintain their trust, and thereby have high standards of permission-based marketing. This is a simple concept, but unfortunately one that many companies don't fully understand.
