Anti-spamming policy

Spamming is the mass sending of emails to people who have not solicited them. These emails have mainly commercial purposes. This sort of practice is not only aggressive, it also overloads the communication servers and thereby hinders the flow of communication.  
bpost does not allow its own computers or the network to be used to distribute unsolicited information or publicity emails to its users.  
It is prohibited to use a bpost connection or server to send large quantities of unsolicited electronic messages, to receive replies to unsolicited messages, or to send an excessive number of messages to newsgroups whose title or subject has nothing to do with the title of the discussion forum, or which may be perceived to be offensive or insulting, or which harm the image of The Belgian Post Group or entities associated with it.  
bpost reserves the right to decide that a particular message does not respect the rules of a newsgroup or address list or may be deemed to be generally disturbing.

Confidentiality of emails

bpost guards the confidentiality of your messages, but your messages are currently not protected by encryption methods. 
bpost reserves the right to access information relating to messages of a public nature, such as messages presented in newsgroups, chat boxes, or forums, if it has a reasonable suspicion that this communication relates to unauthorised activities.

  • the user disseminates information in a manner contrary to national or international rules, generally accepted standards and values, morality, these General Terms and Conditions of Use or the Code of Conduct; 
  •  the user disseminates messages that are discriminatory with regard to appearance, race, religion, gender, culture or origin or may be interpreted as offensive.  
  • The purpose of these measures is to protect bpost’s users and to create a decent and enriching Internet environment.  

Newsgroups

bpost is not bound to monitor any newsgroup. However, bpost reserves the right to decide that a particular message does not respect the rules of a newsgroup or address list, or may be deemed to be generally disturbing, and to redact, refuse to post or to delete all or part of documents or information at any time, unilaterally. Furthermore, bpost reserves the right to disseminate whatsoever information in order to comply with every applicable law or regulation, to comply with any judicial or administrative order or to enforce its legal and contractual obligations.
