Arco Iris has received complaints about the use of our internal family email directory. The directory is only distributed to Arco Iris families as a courtesy to be used for connecting with classmates and parents for non-commercial related communications. Arco Iris does not distribute, sell, or trade the family directory and each family listed has opted-in for the sole purpose of facilitating school related communications.
Use of the information in the family directory to promote your business, sell a product or service, solicit employment, or fundraise, is a clear violation of the Federal Trade Commission’s CAN-SPAM Act, which prohibits commercial entities from distributing information via email to addresses that have not agreed to receive the commercial message. Each separate email in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act is subject to penalties of up to $16,000, so non-compliance can be costly.
Please help us keep our family information private, promote good school related communication, and refrain from putting your business at risk by adhering to Arco Iris’ policy on use of the parent directory.
Sincerely – Arco Iris Board of Directors
