1.2 In an attempt to uphold the trust of our membership body, let it be explicitly noted that these means will not be used in reference to ’blast’ invasion or misuse of individual contact information by spamming for such things as raffle tickets, trophy donations, fund-raising efforts, private or individual member solicitations, etc.
1.3 It is further noted that the forwarding of American Bloodhound Club specific electronic communications and correspondence is to be used solely within the confines of club membership in good standing. Unless a disclaimer appears for permission to forward and cross-post where there is involvement of non-ABC members, it is expressly prohibited to do so; most especially communications containing 'members area only' password content.
