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 Exchange Mail with true, accurate, complete, up-to-date contact information, and remit payment as specified in the applicable Order.

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 or clients 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 Exchange Mail 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 Exchange Mail 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 Exchange Mail 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) Exchange Mail 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.

Exchange Mail has no obligation to provide You notice of the cause of any particular Approved Service Suspension. However Exchange Mail 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, Exchange Mail 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.

If You have specified payment by credit card or direct withdrawal from a bank account, then You authorize Exchange Mail or its applicable processing agent to charge the credit card, or debit the bank account, on file for all Fees due. Exchange Mail 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. Exchange Mail 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 Exchange Mail 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.

- Audits and Business Operation. We are subject to various audits by accountants, clients, and government regulators. In the course of such audits, such auditors may come into contact with PII. Where possible, we require such auditors to keep confidential and not disclose PII consistent with law. In certain governmental audits, we may not be able to require such confidentiality. In addition, we may disclose PII to our attorneys as may be required to obtain legal advice about our and your legal rights and obligations.
- Government and Litigation Requests. We reserve the right to use or disclose PII in connection with: (i) legal proceedings or preparations therefore; (ii) to respond to judicial or other government process such as court orders, subpoenas, requests for discovery and similar litigation relation requirements; (iii) to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety; and (iv) in general to comply with applicable laws, government requests and court orders. We may elect to make these disclosures even if we have not received a subpoena, if we believe in good faith that we have a legal obligation to do so, or if we believe that our failure to do so may result in liability to us, or a violation of law. If we receive a subpoena or other legal demand for your PII, we may endeavor to notify you of the subpoena or demand by contacting you at the current email address that we have for you. However, we cannot promise that we will always be able to send you a notice, that we will attempt to contact you if the email we send fails to get to you, that we will be able to send you the notice before we turn over your information, or that we will resist the request. Unless prohibited by applicable law or other obligations we owe you, we retain the right to impose upon you a reasonable charge for certain requests for your information or data.

If we were to undergo a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization or recapitalization, divestiture, sale of substantially all of our assets, bankruptcy, or other change in control (in each case which may be in respect of the division that administers the Site or the Services, and not necessarily the entire company), PII may be used or disclosed in connection with those activities, which may include the entire transfer of our database of PII to such successor or assignee entity.
