Title: Dreamstime SPAM
Post by: Artist on January 01, 2019, 11:40
Few months back, I have removed my files from section of "Sell the rights"  and now they are continuously sending emails mentioning:

"Your file appears to be suitable for logo usage. Since this usage is allowed only under the exclusive rights license SR-EL, we strongly recommend you enable the SR-EL (SR-EL). This way, you ensure your file attains its maximum sale potential and sells for the highest earning license.
See info regarding terms and allowed usages at the link below:
https://www.dreamstime.com/terms.php#sr-el. (https://www.dreamstime.com/terms.php#sr-el.)
If you are able to sell the exclusive rights license for the image, please use the "ENABLE LICENSE" button to enable it and set the price. Only the lifetime SR-EL can be enabled. Please check the table to see prices for SR-EL."

I consider such emails as spam now, as I never ever had any such offers when I opted in it.
How do we stop such emails?
And has anyone here ever sold the rights from dreamstime?

Absolutely are spam. I have had dozens in one day and they don't care if you complain, just keep on sending them.
I don't sell the rights with DT. It's asking for trouble.
