All well and good, but I don't buy it.
I admit I was a naughty boy and invented a couple of email addresses as referrals for past offers in order to gain free wares, because I'm just not comfortable giving away the email addresses of my friends.
In my case, I provided MacHeist with a couple of "referral" email addresses that belonged to me. As before, these addresses were not given to anyone else, and I see no reason why MacHeist would have forwarded them to "partners", seeing as "they" didn't buy anything.
In any case, I receive a significant amount of spam at these addresses, which were invented purely as MacHeist referrals.
Please explain how these addresses--which were never given to anyone but MacHeist, and never used to buy a bundle (hence shouldn't have been shared with anyone)--are now receiving spam.
Please demonstrate to me why I should trust you and not send any mail addressed to MacHeist-exclusive addresses to /dev/null.
As things stand, I have no choice but to believe that you are selling email addresses to spammers.
