BellaOnline is an editor-run site and as such, we are all very aware of and sensitive to privacy issues. We get enough spam in our own mailboxes - we don't ever want to add to that problem for anybody else!
BellaOnline never spams or sells or distributes the information we hold. In fact, even editors of topical sites cannot see their own membership lists. They only hit a SUBMIT button to send their newsletter out to all of their members. No editor ever sees the names on their membership list. No other person, internal or external, ever sees which names are on which lists, or has any access to them. You will never be spammed by anybody at all as a result of submitting information to BellaOnline.com. We keep your information very private, and will remove it immediately at your request.
BellaOnline's Anti-Spam Software
BellaOnline editors are often innundated with spam messages. We do our very best to ensure that your visitor messages get through while spam is blocked. Sometimes our anti-spam software is a bit too robust and blocks out legitimate messages. The main anti-spam database we use to filter our mail is ORDB.org. We hook our mail system into ordb.org and let them choose what mail gets through and what does not. If you get a bounceback when you try to mail us, be sure to have your ISP contact ordb to get the issue resolved. We don't control who is on or not on the ORDB list. It would be too much trouble for us to maintain our own list separately, or to manually override the ORDB settings to allow certain accounts to pass through to our system. You can always use the editor contact form - found on their bio page - to contact us directly without mail server issues.
