2.2 Within the Main Account, you may create additional accounts (“Accounts”) and render them available to others who you authorize to use your Accounts (“Users”). Creating Accounts for Users does not create any legal relationship between us and such Users. You are solely responsible for all Users’ activities, acts and omissions in connection with the Main Account and Accounts, as well as for your own acts and omissions. You are not entitled to sell, lease, rent nor licensee access to your Main Account or Accounts to third parties, especially as an unassisted service, without our prior consent.

2.4 We provide the technical support of Customer Experience Department only to the user of the Main Account, not to any of the users of Accounts.
3. Upgrade and Downgrade
3.1 You may upgrade your Service or order an add-on at any time. If you upgrade the Service, the fees applicable to upgraded or added Service Details will take effect immediately, with such increased fees calculated on a pro-rated basis, taking into account the number of days remaining in the then-current Settlement Period (defined in Section V below).
3.2 If you purchase an add-on during the current Settlement Period, we will align your add-on billing cycle with your payment cycle, so that the payment dates for all services under your Agreement are in line. The initial fee for the add-on will therefore be calculated in proportion to the number of days remaining until the end of the then current Settlement Period. In case of downgrade, no adjustment will be made during the then-current Settlement Period.
3.3 Upgrades regarding changes in the payment methods, ordering additional IPs, the Transactional Emails feature, and/or increasing your number of Users, Accounts Limit, Contacts List Size, Email/Transactional Email Volume Allowance, Facebook Ads or requesting other services, may be requested via email to email@example.com, and shall be effective upon confirmation by GetResponse.

We reserve the right to block any domain or sub-domain, or cancel or change the name of any domain or sub-domain that you select, including but not limited to, if we are ordered to do so by a court or other governmental authority or reasonably believe that we must do so in order to avoid infringement or violation of the right of any third party or GetResponse.

GetResponse provides assistance in the SMS dispatch only and cannot interfere with their contents.

The statement is submitted in the Account prior to dispatch. We reserve the right to verify the Name of the sender designated by you.

6.4 You confirm that you have the right to use the data used in the SMS service including the telephone number specified in the list of recipients. You undertake to execute the rights vested in data subjects, including responding to communications demanding the cessation of the dispatch of SMS dispatch to those addressees who did not consent to that or who withdraw their consent.
6.5 GetResponse does not verify the correctness of numbers supplied by you. The list of numbers to which the SMS are sent shall be available in the Account for 30 days as of the dispatch. After that time, the list of numbers shall be automatically deleted from the system with no possibility of its recovery. It is your sole responsibility to create backups of files and data you use while using the SMS service. We are not responsible for any damage relating to their loss.
6.6 The SMS service can only be available for selected locations; however, we continue to work on the expansion of the list of suppliers enabling the widest possible range of the service. The SMS functionality does not make MMS messaging possible.
6.7 You can verify the technical status of the SMS service at any time HERE.
7. Additional features (add-ons) and services
7.1 You may use certain additional features (add-ons) we provide, or integrate third-party services with the Service. The third-party services are not provided by GetResponse.

Please be aware that the use the Transactional Emails functionality you need to use the Third-Party Services. Please remember, that GetResponse only facilitates the transmission of your messages and cannot interfere with the content of those messages.

Accordingly, fees for use of the Service within the terms of your Subscription are due and payable in advance, unless otherwise stipulated in your Order.
3. All fees are net amounts exclusive of taxes. Where appropriate, value added tax (VAT), goods and services tax (GST) or any other tax on sales (irrespective of the designation of the tax adopted in various jurisdictions) will be added to the payment price in accordance with currently effective rates. You agree to pay any taxes applicable to your use of the Service. You represent that you are registered for VAT or GST purposes in your country. At our request, you will provide us with the VAT or GST registration number under which you are registered. If you are required to deduct or withhold any tax, you must pay the amount deducted or withheld as required by law and pay us an additional amount so that we receive payment in full as if there were no deduction or withholding.
4. Please note that some taxes depend on the region, province, state, town or district where you are located. You need to provide us with your correct address at all times, as we do not bear any responsibility resulting from the wrong calculation of taxes due to the inaccurate or wrong indication of your address by you.
5. All fees due to GetResponse shall be paid by bank wire transfer, ACH, PayPal or credit card, subject to restrictions on certain payment methods depending on your country, by the applicable due date. We will indicate the bank account to which the payment shall be transferred. Please note, that the availability of the above-mentioned payment methods depends on your location and the Service provider you concluded the Order with.
6. If you add a credit card to your available methods of payment, you hereby agree that all amounts then due to GetResponse shall be paid automatically by credit card on the first day of each applicable Settlement Period. In the event that the credit card you provided us with expires or any credit card information changes or becomes out of date, in order to procure continuity and avoid Service interruptions, you hereby authorize us to obtain or determine updated or replacement information, in particular expiration dates or credit card number, and to continue billing on the same terms using the updated or replacement information. We are not responsible for any fees charged by payment service providers.
7. When you pay via wire transfer, PayPal or ACH, the term “Settlement Period” shall mean a calendar monthly period, and the first Settlement Period shall begin on the Commencement Date indicated in your Order (“Commencement Date”). All the fees shall be paid by the Customer within 14 (fourteen) days of the date of issuing the invoice, to GetResponse’s bank account indicated on the invoice. The first and the last invoice may be issued for a period shorter than the full Settlement Period.
8. If you add a credit card to the available methods of payment, the term “Settlement Period” shall mean each successive period of 30 (thirty) consecutive calendar days, starting on the day the credit card has been added. All the fees shall be paid in advance and your invoice will be issued by GetResponse after the payment.
9. You shall be in default if we do not receive payment after the due date. If you are in default of payment, we will be entitled to charge interest at the highest rate permitted by applicable law and exercise other rights as defined herein.
10. If you exceed any of the limits you have paid for under your Subscription, you will be required to pay additional fees in accordance with the Order. Fees for exceeding the number of Users and Accounts Limit in a given Settlement Period are calculated based on the peak number of accounts – Main Account and Accounts and their individual Users who were active (i.e., the User’s status was set in position “ON” in the Main Account or Accounts) during any moment of the given Settlement Period. Fees for use of the Service in excess of your Subscription during a given Settlement Period will be invoiced in arrears and:
a. if you pay via credit card – the fee shall be paid automatically on the first day of the Settlement Period following the Settlement Period during which the limits were exceeded;
b. if you pay via wire transfer, PayPal or ACH – the fee shall be paid within fourteen (14) days from of the date of issuing the invoice by GetResponse.
11. Except as expressly stated in the Agreement, all payments under the Agreement are non-refundable. For clarity, if your Agreement is concluded for a definite period of time and:
a. you have prepaid for your Service – you are not entitled to any refund in the case of the termination of the Agreement before the end of the current Term;
b. you have agreed to monthly payments – you are still obliged to pay GetResponse the whole fee given in your Order, even if you decide to terminate the Agreement earlier. In that case the fee for the Settlement Periods remaining till the end of the current Term shall be paid within 14 days after the terminated notice was received by GetResponse (when you terminate the Agreement) or paid within 14 days of when the termination notice was issued by GetResponse (when GetResponse is entitled to terminate the Agreement earlier on the basis of the Agreement e.g. your material breach or spamming).
12. Please note that the termination of your Agreement or access to the Service by GetResponse for any cause (as determined in section X point 3 below) also does not release you from the obligation to pay all remuneration due under your Agreement.
13. Fees for the use of the Service are based on the Subscription you have purchased. Not using the Service, irrespective of the cause, does not entitle you to a refund or any reduction in the fees you are required to pay to GetResponse. Similarly, you are not entitled to any such refund or reduction if you delay access to the Services or do not have the ability to use the Service.
14. Any unused Service limits, such as unused Email Volume Allowance, or unused Contacts List Size, are not transferred or carried over to subsequent Settlement Periods.
15. If we determine fees based on the number of your Contacts’ email addresses, we will monitor for the peak number of your Contacts’ e-mail addresses accumulated in all your campaigns, Main Account and Accounts in a given Settlement Period, which means that your Contacts are unique within each campaign, but not within the entire Main Account and Accounts.
16. To determine the fees due in a given Settlement Period, the highest number of the Contacts’ email addresses is taken into account. A downgrade of the number of email addresses within a given Settlement Period does not change the fees due for the use of the Service.
17. The payment for the SMS service is executed as a prepayment based on the current price list available in the Account. We reserve the right to change the price list at any time. The value of funds available is visible in the Account. A VAT invoice will be issued automatically after the payment. A report containing the number of correctly delivered SMS messages will be available in the Account after the dispatch. The final cost of the dispatch will be calculated on the basis of the report.
18. You can use funds paid as a part of the SMS service within 12 months as of the last top-up. Funds unused during that time shall expire.
