ONP-Mail Policies

ONP-Mail Program Policies

The Old Norse Paganism Email Program (ONP-Mail) Policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for everyone using ONP-Mail. Be sure to check back from time to time, as these policies may change. Please also refer to Old Norse Paganism’s Terms of Service for more information.

If you believe an account has violated our Program Policies, there are multiple ways to report it:

  • For general abuse
  • For child grooming
  • For copyright violations

Send an email to Help

Make sure to read the Old Norse Paganism Policies below to understand how we define abusive behavior.

Old Norse Paganism may disable any accounts at any time they are found to be in violation of our policies. If your account is disabled, and you believe it was a mistake, please follow the instructions Send an email to Help.

Spam and Bulk Mail Policies

Don’t use Old Norse Paganism email to distribute spam or unsolicited commercial mail.

You are not allowed to use ONP-Mail to send email in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act or other anti-spam laws; to send an unauthorized email via open, third-party servers; or to distribute the email addresses of any person without their consent.

You are not allowed to automate the ONP-Mail interface, whether to send, delete, or filter emails, in a manner that misleads or deceives users.

Please keep in mind that your definition of “unsolicited” or “unwanted” mail may differ from your email recipients’ perception. Exercise judgment when sending email to a large number of recipients, even if the recipients elected to receive emails from you in the past. When Old Norse Paganism users mark emails as spam, it increases the likelihood that future messages you send will also be classified as spam by our anti-abuse systems.

The Creation and Use of Multiple ONP-Mail Accounts

Don’t create or use multiple accounts to abuse Old Norse Paganism policies, bypass Old Norse Paganism account limitations, circumvent filters, or otherwise subvert restrictions placed on your account. (For example, if you’ve been blocked by another user or have had your email account disabled due to abuse, don’t create a replacement account that engages in similar activity.)

You’re also not allowed to create ONP-Mail accounts by automated means or buy, sell, trade, or re-sell ONP-Mail accounts to others.

ONP-Mail Malware Policies

Don’t use ONP-Mail to transmit viruses, malware, worms, defects, Trojan horses, corrupted files, or any other items of a destructive or deceptive nature. In addition, don’t distribute content that harms or interferes with the operation of networks, servers, or other infrastructure belonging to Old Norse Paganism or others.

Fraud, Phishing, and other Deceptive Practices ONP-Mail Policies

You may not access another user’s email account without their explicit permission.

Don’t use ONP-Mail for phishing. Refrain from soliciting or collecting sensitive data, including but not limited to passwords, financial details, and Social Security numbers.

Don’t send messages to trick, mislead, or deceive other users into sharing information under false pretenses. This includes impersonating another person, company, or entity with the intent to deceive or mislead.

Child Safety

Old Norse Paganism has a zero-tolerance policy against child sexual abuse imagery. If we become aware of such content, we will report it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as required by law. We may also take disciplinary action, including termination, against the Old Norse Paganism accounts of those involved.

ONP prohibits the grooming of children using email, defined as a set of actions aimed at establishing a connection with a child to lower the child’s inhibitions in preparation for sexual abuse, trafficking, or other exploitation.

If you believe a child is in danger of or has been subject to abuse, exploitation, or been trafficked, contact your local law enforcement immediately.

If you have already made a report to law enforcement and still need help, or you have concerns a child is being or was endangered using ONP-Mail, you can report the behavior to Old Norse Paganism by sending an email to Help. Please remember that you can always block any person you do not want to be contacted by on ONP-Mail.


Respect copyright laws. Don’t infringe on the intellectual property rights of others, including patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights. You are also not allowed to encourage or induce others to violate intellectual property rights. You can report copyright infringement to Old Norse Paganism by sending an email to Help


Don’t use ONP-Mail to harass, intimidate, or threaten others. Anyone found to be using ONP-Mail for these purposes may have their account disabled.

Illegal Activity

Keep it legal. Don’t use ONP-Mail to promote, organize, or engage in unlawful activities.
