MailChimp is a web-based application that works in most web browsers , which
means you don’t need to download or install any new software on your computer.
To make sure that MailChimp works properly in your browser, you should enable
need the latest version of Flash .
When you create a MailChimp account, you agree to comply with all anti-spam
permission-based, consisting of subscribers who signed up through a mailing list
signup form or gave explicit permission for you to add them to the list. You must
have tangible, confirmable proof that the subscriber wants you to communicate
with them. Be mindful of these guidelines as you’re getting started:
Make sure the intent of the signup form is clearly stated. All potential
subscribers should understand that, by submitting their contact information
through the form, they are agreeing to receive bulk email from you.
“Contact Us,” “Apply For A Quote,” or “More Information” forms are not
considered an acceptable opt-in method for bulk emails. These forms generally
indicate a one-to-one email, not permission to be added to a bulk mailing list.
Email addresses collected verbally, from personal address books, from
business cards, or from social media/LinkedIn followers are not considered
viable opt-in methods, due to their lack of tangible, verifiable proof of consent.
While it’s generally okay to add existing customers to a bulk mailing list, they
must be recent customers (having purchased a product in the past 6 months)
or customers that have already been regularly receiving emails from you. Only
use addresses that have requested to be added to a list.
We do not allow any kind of third party lists in our system. This includes publicly
available, purchased, rented, or partner lists.
