Controlling Unsolicited E-mail ("Spam")

Arctic Slope Community Foundation is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or "spam." Arctic Slope Community Foundation has a strict Anti-Spam Policy prohibiting the use of an e-mail account to send spam. Arctic Slope Community Foundation will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While Arctic Slope Community Foundation continues to actively review and implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using junk e-mail tools and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.
