1.1. General.

Constant Contact, Inc. ("Constant Contact," "we" or "us") provides small businesses and organizations with a variety of products and services and related offerings, features and functionalities (individually, a "Product" and collectively, the "Products"). This website (including any related sub-site, service, feature or functionality) (the "Site") and the Products are provided subject to these Website and Product Terms and Conditions of Use, as they may be amended by us, and any guidelines, rules or operating policies that we may post on this website, including, without limitation, our Anti-Spam Policy, our Prohibited Content and Commerce Statement and our Privacy Statement, which are specifically incorporated herein by reference (collectively, the "Agreement"). We may amend this Agreement from time to time due to changes to the Site or the Products, to account for developments under the law, or for any other commercially reasonable reason. Future performance by us of our obligations under this Agreement is sufficient consideration for any such amendment. Any amendment will only become effective upon notification to you (by email or by posting on our Site) and, if you do not want to agree to any such amendment, you should stop using the Site and the Products and contact us to cancel your account. By checking the box next to the "Do you agree?" button on the sign-up page, by logging in to your Constant Contact account, by accessing the Site or by accessing any of the Products (including by means of any API interface), you accept this Agreement on behalf of yourself and any business or organization you represent (collectively, "you"). Any terms and conditions that may be contained in any acknowledgement, invoice, purchase order or other form you provide are specifically null and void.

We reserve the right to send messages to you to inform you of (a) changes or additions to the Site, the Products, this Agreement or the Fee Schedule (defined below), (b) violations of this Agreement or actions relating to your privilege to access and use the Site or the Products, or (c) any other matter related to the Site, the Products or this Agreement. Nothing in this provision shall require or obligate us to send any notice if no notice is required or mandated elsewhere in this Agreement.

You agree that we may, but are not obligated to, monitor or record any of your telephone conversations and chat texts with us for quality control purposes, for purposes of training our employees and for our own protection.

FURTHER, YOU CONSENT TO RECEIVE SUCH PHONE CALLS AT THE TELEPHONE NUMBER YOU ENTERED ON THE SITE.

4. Fees; Payment; Taxes.

4.1. Fees.

(a) Fee Schedule. Once you have completed any applicable free trial period or exceeded any limits described on the applicable fee schedule (the "Fee Schedule"), you will be subject to fees in accordance with any applicable Fee Schedule. Applicable fees will be billed monthly or your pre-paid account will be debited monthly for the Products, even if you are not actively using the Products. The applicable Fee Schedule is subject to change at any time in our sole discretion, and if you do not agree to any such changes, you should contact us to cancel your account. We will use good faith efforts to notify you prior to the effectiveness of any significant change to the applicable Fee Schedule, but you are responsible for reviewing the applicable Fee Schedule from time to time and remaining aware of the fees charged by us and any applicable discounts. You acknowledge and agree that our measurements are the definitive measurements for payment due and owed hereunder.

(b) Other Billing Arrangements. If you receive the Products by means of one of our re-sellers or partners (a "Reseller"), the Reseller may be responsible for billing you for the Products and you may be subject to a different fee schedule and additional terms and conditions. In the event of any conflict between this Agreement and the Reseller’s terms and conditions, this Agreement shall control except with respect to the payment provisions set forth in this Section 4. If you cease to be a customer of a Reseller, any special pricing, benefits or terms may no longer be available to you. We may rely on information provided by the Reseller, if any, with respect to the status of your Constant Contact account.

(c) Disputes. Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, any disputes about any charges to you under this Agreement must be submitted to us in writing within 60 days of the date such charges are incurred. You agree to waive all disputes not brought within the 60 day period, and all such charges will be final and not subject to challenge.

4.2. Payment; Taxes.

(a) Payment. Payment for the Products will be made in advance by a valid credit card accepted by us. Checks will be accepted for prepayments of at least six months. Fees are only payable in the currencies made available to you when you purchase our Products. If the monthly payment option is selected or if you have previously provided us with your credit card for payment, you hereby authorize us to charge your credit card for such amounts on a regular monthly basis beginning at the end of any applicable free trial period and continuing until such time as your Constant Contact account is terminated. If we are for any reason unable to effect automatic payment by credit card, we will attempt to notify you by email and your Constant Contact account may be disabled until payment is received.

(b) Taxes. We collect and remit sales tax from our customers located in certain state and local jurisdictions, including those jurisdictions where software delivered as a service is taxable and where we maintain a physical presence. We determine your local taxing jurisdiction based on the billing address that you list in the "My Account" section of your Constant Contact account. Fees set forth in the applicable Fee Schedule do not take into account any taxes.

You agree to be responsible for and to pay any sales, personal property, use, VAT, excise, withholding, or any other taxes that may be imposed, based on this Agreement, use or possession of the Site or the Products or your products or services (except for taxes based on net income payable by us).

5. Access and Use of the Site and the Products.

5.1. Prohibition on Spam; Permission Practices.

(a) Prohibition on Spam. The Site and the Products may not be used for the sending of unsolicited email messages (sometimes called "spam"). All messages sent by means of the Site or the Products shall be in compliance with our Anti-Spam Policy.

You are responsible for ensuring that your use of the Site and the Products do not generate a number of spam or other complaints in excess of industry norms. We may terminate your access to or use of the Site and the Products if we determine that your level of spam or other complaints is higher than industry norms, as determined by us in our sole discretion. As a matter of privacy, we will not share with you information about those recipients who complain about your use of the Products or file a spam report against you.

You agree to import, access or otherwise use only contact lists in connection with the Site and the Products for which all listed parties have consented to receive correspondence from you (such as by opting into your "Join My Mailing List" link). It is not sufficient consent to receive email correspondence from you if a person or organization participates in a survey or registers for an event, clicks "Like" on your Facebook® page, or "follows" you on Twitter®. If you have used our feature that allows you to request a recipient to confirm that you have the recipient's permission to send messages to such recipient (assuming such use is permitted by laws applicable to you), and such recipient has not responded or does not respond affirmatively to such request for confirmation, you agree that you shall not send messages to that recipient. You agree not to send messages through the Site or the Products to distribution lists, newsgroups, publicly available press or media addresses or purchased email addresses.

We reserve the right without notice to take all measures of any nature (whether legal, technical or otherwise) to prevent unsolicited bulk email and/or other unauthorized email, messages or campaigns from entering, utilizing or remaining within our network.

(b) Messages. In your use of the Site or the Products, you shall represent yourself or your organization accurately and will not impersonate any other person, whether actual or fictitious.

You agree that you are the sole or designated "sender" (as such term is defined in the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 and any rules or regulations adopted under such act (the "CAN-SPAM Act")) of any message sent by you using the Site or the Products. Similarly, for messages sent to Canadian email accounts, you are the sole person sending or causing or permitting the message to be sent by you using the Site or the Products (within the meaning of Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation, S.C. 2010, c. 23 ("Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation")).

You agree that for any email message sent by you using the Site or the Products, (i) the "from" line of any email message sent by you using the Site or the Products will accurately and in a non-deceptive manner identify your organization, your product or your service, (ii) the "subject" line of any email message sent by you using the Site or the Products will not contain any deceptive or misleading content regarding the overall subject matter of the email message, and (iii) you will include your valid physical address, which, if you are located in the United States, may be a valid post office box meeting the registration requirements established by the United States Postal Service.

(c) Unsubscribe. Every email message sent in connection with the Products must contain an "unsubscribe" link that allows subscribers to remove themselves from your mailing list and a link to the then-current Customer Privacy Policy. Each such link must remain operational for at least 60 days after the date on which you send the message, and must be in form and substance satisfactory to us. You agree that you will not remove, disable or attempt to remove or disable either link. You shall monitor and process unsubscribe requests received by you directly within 10 days of submission and update the email addresses to which messages are sent through your Constant Contact account. You cannot charge a fee, require the recipient to give you any personally identifying information beyond an email address, or make the recipient take any step other than sending a reply email or visiting a single page on an Internet website as a condition for honoring an unsubscribe request. As required under the CAN-SPAM Act and other applicable laws, you acknowledge that you are responsible for maintaining and honoring the list of unsubscribe requests following termination of your Constant Contact account and this Agreement.

You agree that you shall not utilize the Site or the Products to send any message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service (including content on an Internet website operated for a commercial purpose) (a "commercial electronic mail message" as defined in the CAN-SPAM Act or Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation) to any person who has opted out or otherwise objected to receiving such messages from you or another sender on whose behalf you may be acting.

We do not hold your funds or those of your subscribers, customers, participants, event registrants or donors at any time.

You are responsible for any refunds associated with any payments. If, in your discretion, you decide to offer a refund to a purchaser of one of your Deals, we will only refund the fees received by us with respect to such refunded purchaser to the extent (a) you offer the refund by means of the refund mechanism within the Product within 60 days of such purchaser’s purchase of your Deal and (b) your account has not been terminated (either by you or us).
