GTE Spam Policy

Our spam policy at GTE is "zero-tolerance". Anyone found to be generating spam from within our system will have their user privileges revoked immediately. Persons attempting to forward spam email messages inbound to our system will be blocked and prevented from sending further email to any GTE users. Please note, however, that many messages appearing to originate from GTE (or any other) mail servers could contain "forged headers", written by the party originating the messages to make them appear to come from somebody else. This is done to avoid action normally taken against those abusing email systems and to cause damage to the reputation of the parties appearing to have sent the messages. Experienced investigators can tell immediately whether headers have been forged and where the message actually originated; thus, it is important that any mail forwarded to us for investigation contains the complete headers from the original message.
The following are some examples of spamming that may violate the Terms and Conditions and GTE’s Spam Policy:
  • Manipulating identifiers, such as email headers, to disguise the origin of any content transmitted to or through GTE computer systems.
  • Relaying email from a third party's mail servers without the permission of that third party.
  • Using or causing to be used GTE computer systems to facilitate the transmission of unsolicited or unauthorized material. This includes any promotional materials, URLs, "junk mail," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of unauthorized solicitation that you may upload, post, email, transmit, or otherwise make available.
  • Using "robots" or otherwise harvesting other's email addresses from the GTE website for purposes of sending unsolicited or unauthorized material.
  • Uploading, posting, emailing, or transmitting the same message, URL, or post multiple times.

 

Returns & Exchanges

All returned products must be 100% complete in original packaging and in resalable condition, with all packaging, software, manuals, blank warranty cards and other accessories and documentation originally included.
  • Returns are valid within (7) days of original purchase date unless otherwise specified.
  • Environmental levies may be charged where applicable.
  • All Software, Special orders and Refurbished product sales are Final.
  • Returns will not be accepted on items that are missing packaging or accessories or that have been physically altered, modified or damaged (a re-stocking fee may apply). GTE also reserves the right to refuse returns deemed to be an abuse of our return policy.
