We want BerserkerMail to be the best email marketing platform you’ve ever used. However, for this to be true for you and our other users (“Berserkers”), there must be guidelines. These rules exist to protect you and the platform.
When you become a Berserker, and every time you sign in to your BeserkerMail account, you agree to abide by these guidelines as they are updated from time to time. If you violate these rules, we will exercise our unilateral discretion to enforce these guidelines. This can include, but is not limited to, account suspension or termination.
1. Get permission. This includes:

(b) Encourage subscribers to whitelist/safelist your sender email address;
