Private, Secure & SPAM Free!
  Solid, no-nonsense security.
Secure, Protected, & SPAM Free:
  • Secure System, Data Protected:
    • Your member area is secure, password protected, and uses SSL encryption.
    • Our secure servers are hosted in a world-class datacenter with a secure, firewalled network, monitored 24/7, and use the highest level of digital and physical security.

    Safe, Secure, and SPAM-FREE
    Spam- & Abuse-Free Zone:
    As "tell a friend" marketing increases in popularity, referral systems are increasingly becoming the object of abuse by spammers. Even the big guys like YouTube have been hit.
    A badly made, unprotected, "tell a friend" form can be a disaster. Spammers can send out hundreds of thousands of email messages in a matter of minutes.
    This wastes your server resources, can get your website shut down, damages your reputation for email delivery, and can flood your phone lines and email with irate people who think YOU spammed them.
    It can also cause legal problems, since spam is against the law.

    A lot of "tell a friend" systems just add CAPTCHA (graphical challenge), to prevent automated abuse, but that's not enough.
    There are a few problems with depending only on CAPTCHA:
    • It can be beaten: Many CAPTCHA systems are already beaten. Even if it works today, there's no assurance that it will still work tomorrow.
    • Making everyone who wants to refer you type a security code seems like punishing your good users for the abuses of just a few.
    • It's not very friendly to the visually impaired.

    We do offer a CAPTCHA option, so you can challenge every referral if you like, but it's not necessary. Suspicious users will be challenged automatically.

    And that is only one step in our proprietary, no-nonsense, adaptive, multi-layer spam and abuse prevention system.

    We also have live security staff, automatic monitoring, adaptive pattern and network analysis, and multiple layers of abuse prevention, including multiple CAPTCHA routines of escalating difficulty.

    • Our system is protected from spiders, spambots, automatic scripts, human hackers, and spammers.
    • In our years in business, we have never had a serious system breach involving SPAM, and we work hard to keep it that way.
