The effective date of this Agreement will be the earlier of the date You complete an Order, or access or use the Services (the “Effective Date”).
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THIS AGREEMENT. BY SUBMITTING AN ORDER, OR ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT AND MEET ALL OF THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS IN THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR DO NOT MEET ALL OF THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS IN THIS AGREEMENT, SPARKPOST DOES NOT GRANT YOU PERMISSION TO, AND YOU MUST NOT, ACCESS OR USE THE SITE OR THE SERVICES.
- Definitions. The terms used in this Agreement will have the definitions provided in this Agreement. If not defined herein, the terms will have their plain English meaning as commonly understood in the United States of America.
- Orders. An Order is required for any free use of the Services (such as a free subscription or a trial subscription, each a “Free Subscription”) and for any paid use of the Services (a “Paid Subscription”). In connection with any Order, You must provide SparkPost with true, accurate, complete, up-to-date contact information, and remit payment as specified in the applicable Order. All Orders completed by You will be governed by the terms of this Agreement. If the terms of this Agreement or any of the Policies conflict with Your Order, the specific terms of Your Order will govern but only with respect to the use of the Services specified in the applicable Order.
- Access. After You have completed an Order, SparkPost may grant you a unique account (an “Account”). In connection with the Account, You may be provided with one or more unique user identifiers and passwords (each, an “Account ID”). Each Account ID is personal in nature and may only be used by You, or if You are an organization only by Your designated employees or contractors who are contractually required to comply with the terms of this Agreement (such individual, as applicable, the “User” of the Account). You are solely responsible for all use of the Services by each User (and anyone who accesses the Services through Your Account, other than SparkPost employees and contractors) and for compliance by each such User or other person with the terms of this Agreement. You will ensure the security and confidentiality of each Account ID and will notify SparkPost immediately if any Account ID is lost, stolen or otherwise compromised. You acknowledge that You are fully responsible for all costs, fees (including, without limitation, attorneys and professional fees), liabilities and damages incurred through use of each Account ID. You also acknowledge that any Services ordered or transactions completed through any Account or under any Account ID will be deemed to have been authorized and lawfully completed by You. In no event will SparkPost be liable for the foregoing obligations or the failure by You to fulfill such obligations. You, at Your own expense, will be solely responsible for procuring, installing and maintaining any hardware, software, or other equipment as may be necessary for You and each User to connect to, access, and use the Services or the Site.
- Term. This Agreement is effective beginning on the Effective Date and will continue for the period specified in the Order (the “Initial Term”). In the case of a Free Subscription, this Agreement and all of Your rights to use the Services will expire at the end of the Term unless: (i) You complete another Order; or (ii) SparkPost previously terminated Your Account, which it may do at any time. In the case of a Paid Subscription, the Term, including all associated payment obligations, will automatically renew for successive periods equal in length to the Initial Term (each, a “Renewal Term”, and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”), unless either party sends the other written notice of its intent not to renew the Term not later than thirty (30) days prior to the end of the current Term. In the case of a Paid Subscription with an Initial Term of more than one (1) year, each Renewal Term length will be one (1) year.
- Modifications to this Agreement. SparkPost may modify this Agreement and any of the Policies at any time by: (a) posting the revised version on the Site; (b) asking You to re-verify Your login credentials; (c) electronically sending You a link to the modified Agreement or Policies; or (d) through other reasonable means. Your continued use of the Services after SparkPost has notified you in one of the above manners will be deemed to constitute Your acceptance of any such modification, provided that: (A) with respect to Free Subscriptions, such modifications will apply retroactively to the inception of Your access to or use of the Site or Services unless expressly prohibited by applicable law; and (B) with respect to Paid Subscriptions, such modifications will (i) not modify any financial terms in the then current Order for the initial Term thereof and will apply only to future Terms or Orders; (ii) apply only prospectively and will not affect any prior rights You may have; and (iii) not be construed to modify any other terms or conditions in any material manner during the then current Order for the initial Term thereof (any such material modifications will apply only to subsequent Terms or new Orders). In addition to the above, all modifications to this Agreement or any of the Policies will be effective immediately upon posting for all Orders subsequent thereto, unless otherwise provided.
- Downtime and Maintenance. You acknowledge that SparkPost is entitled, without any liability, to suspend access to any or all of the Services at any time: (i) to perform scheduled or unscheduled maintenance, modifications or upgrades; (ii) due to hardware failures, power outages, failures of third-party providers, or because of interruptions of any other kind; (iii) to mitigate the effects of or prevent any attack or threat to the Site, Services, or any other network or systems on which the Services rely; or (iv) as necessary in SparkPost’s sole discretion because the Services or Your Use thereof are or may violate a law or regulation, or as might be required for other legal or regulatory reasons (collectively, “Approved Service Suspensions”). SparkPost has no obligation to provide You notice of the cause of any particular Approved Service Suspension. However SparkPost will attempt to notify You in advance of any scheduled Approved Service Suspension, but other than as may be expressly stated in the applicable Order, SparkPost will have no liability for any damages, losses (including loss of data or profits), or any other consequences incurred as a result of an Approved Service Suspension or the failure to provide notice thereof.
- Fees and Payment Terms. You agree to pay SparkPost all fees in accordance with the applicable Order (“Fees”). If the Order does not specify any invoicing terms, such Fees will be invoiced annually in advance. Unless some other date is specified on the Order, You agree to pay SparkPost the amount set forth on any invoice, submitted in accordance with the Order, within thirty (30) days after receipt thereof. If You have specified payment by credit card or direct withdrawal from a bank account, then You authorize SparkPost or its applicable processing agent to charge the credit card, or debit the bank account, on file for all Fees due. SparkPost may change its rates prospectively for any Renewal Term by posting the new rates on the Site, or by providing you advance notice through other reasonable means. SparkPost may charge You interest on any overdue Fees at a rate of 1.5% per month or, if such rate of interest is unlawful, the maximum rate of interest permitted by law. You will reimburse SparkPost for all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in collecting any overdue amounts, as permitted by law. All Fees are non-cancelable and non-refundable, including upon any termination or suspension of this Agreement.
- Taxes. You will be responsible for all applicable taxes, however designated, incurred in connection with this Agreement, including but not limited to federal, state, or local sales or use taxes, value-added taxes (VAT), excises, and other taxes or duties which may now or hereafter be levied on the Services provided hereunder or on payments made under this Agreement (the “Taxes”). If at any time SparkPost or a taxing authority determines that SparkPost is required to pay any Taxes not previously collected from You, You will promptly submit such Taxes (including applicable penalties and interest, if any) to SparkPost (or if applicable to the taxing authority) within thirty (30) days of receipt of notice. You hereby indemnify and agree to defend and hold SparkPost harmless from any claim by a taxing authority for any Taxes, penalties or interest.
