  4. Use of accounts

    1. Accounts are meant to be used for a single set of message subscribers. You are not allowed to continually delete and re-import new contacts into an account. For example, you cannot sign up for a 25,000 subscriber/contact plan and try to send messages to 100,000 contacts by deleting and importing new contacts.
    2. Flexmail does not know the inner workings of your organization or the nature of your personal relationships, and will not arbitrate any disputes over who owns an account. You will not request access to or information about an account that is not yours, and you will resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. Flexmail decides who owns an account based on the content of the emails in that account, and if multiple people or entities are identified in the content, then Flexmail will rely on the contact information listed for that account.
    3. When it comes to the monthly Flexmail plans, you as a user are allowed to send unlimited emails to your contacts, within fair use. This is calculated on the regular use of the application by an average user. Flexmail holds the right to ban you from the service or offer you a customized pricing in case of excessive use or spamming.
  5. Liability

    1. You hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless Flexmail against any damages, losses, liabilities, settlements, and expenses (including, without limitation, costs and reasonable legal fees) in connection with any claim or action that arises from an alleged violation of the foregoing or otherwise arising from or relating to your use of the Services.
    2. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that Flexmail has the right to seek damages when you use the Services for unlawful purposes, in an unlawful manner, and/or in a manner inconsistent with the Conditions of this Agreement, and that such damages may include, without limitation, direct, indirect, special, incidental, cover, reliance and/or consequential damages.
    3. Although Flexmail has no obligation to monitor the content provided by you or your use of the Services, Flexmail may do so and may remove any such content or prohibit any use of the Services it believes may be (or is alleged to be) in violation of the foregoing. In this event, Flexmail cannot be held liable by the Customer.
