No email address found on the Site may be harvested or otherwise used for purposes of solicitation. The appearance of any member's address, email address, fax number, or telephone number on this Site does not constitute permission for you to contact that member for commercial purposes or to send that member facsimile advertisements or commercial electronic mail messages.

For your protection, LIFESCIENCE ALLEY would like to remind you that a U.S. federal law known as the "CAN-SPAM Act" (15 U.S.C. ยค 7701) places restrictions on how Internet users may send e-mail messages where the primary purpose of the message is commercial advertisement or promoting a commercial product or service. Please refer to the CAN-SPAM Act for further definition of "commercial messages."

If you plan to send a message to any address you obtain from the LIFESCIENCE ALLEY Member Directory or elsewhere on the LIFESCIENCE ALLEY Site that might be considered primarily to be a commercial advertisement or to promote a commercial product or service, keep in mind that, a) you are prohibited from using email addresses obtained from this Site for solicitation and b) it is your responsibility to make sure you comply with the CAN-SPAM Act.

E-Communications and "Undeliverable" Email
As discussed above, the federal "CAN-SPAM Act" places restrictions on how Internet users may send email messages where the primary purpose of the message is commercial advertisement or promoting a commercial product or service. Please refer to the CAN-SPAM Act for further definition of "commercial messages."

LIFESCIENCE ALLEY uses an email blast system to send our email notices. If LIFESCIENCE ALLEY is notified that your email address is "undeliverable", e-communications to you from any or all of LIFESCIENCE ALLEY may be stopped. We have listed possible reasons as to why email messages from the LIFESCIENCE ALLEY may not be accepted by your email system and include SPAM-blocking measures or email server issues used by (a) your organization's network, (b) your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or (c) your personal mail preferences. These reasons include:

  • Your email server was off-line/down
  • Your mailbox was full or your email address invalid
  • Your ISP or mailbox filter filed the message into a junk, spam or trash folder
  • The network or ISP found a "black-listed" domain name or Internet Protocol (IP) address. This "blocking" may be for a LIFESCIENCE ALLEY domain; or SPAM and/or virus scanning software found a "suspicious" keyword or a message as possibly harmful.

Here are some suggested steps you can take:
Some systems have a "white list" or "trusted list". Please put the LIFESCIENCE ALLEY domain on these lists so that LIFESCIENCE ALLEY email can reach you. LIFESCIENCE ALLEY can provide you with the exact IP address information that you/your IT department can use to add to the organization's white list. Also, adding the LIFESCIENCE ALLEY domain to your address book may assist this process:

  • All LIFESCIENCE ALLEY email notices list LIFESCIENCE ALLEY in the "From" line.
  • Please be sure that LIFESCIENCE ALLEY has your current email address. Update it at MY PROFILE on the LIFESCIENCE ALLEY Site.

LIFESCIENCE ALLEY would like to continue to include you in our email communications. If you have questions or concerns about the use of these options or how LIFESCIENCE ALLEY communicates with you, please contact us at 952-542-3077 or info at lifesciencealley dot org
