Please read these Terms carefully. By using Why Not Email? or signing up for an account, you’re agreeing to these Terms. This is a legal agreement. We’ll start with the basics, including a few definitions that should help you understand this agreement. Why Not Email? (“Why Not Email?” or the “Service”) is an email service offered through the URL www.whynotemail.com (we’ll refer to it as the “Website”) that allows you to create, send, and manage email newsletters (each message is called an “Email”) to individual recipients. Why Not Email? is owned and operated by Trance Hub (“Why Not Email?,” “we,” or “us”). Why Not Email? has employees, independent contractors, and representatives (“our Team”). As a customer of the Service or a representative of an entity that’s a customer of the Service, you’re a “Member” according to this agreement (or “you”).
In order to use Why Not Email?, you must:
1. be at least eighteen (18) years old and able to enter into contracts;
2. complete the registration process;
3. agree to the Terms; and
4. provide true, complete, and up to date contact information.
By using Why Not Email?, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use Why Not Email? in a way that violates any laws or regulations. (Representing and warranting is like making a legally enforceable promise.) Why Not Email? may refuse service, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
The Term begins when you sign up for Why Not Email? and continues as long as you use the Service. Clicking the button and entering your email means that you’ve officially “signed” the Terms. If you sign up for Why Not Email? on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms on their behalf.
3. Closing Your Account
You or Why Not Email? may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by giving Notice to the other party. We may suspend our Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, we’ll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment. We won’t refund or reimburse you if there’s cause, like a violation of these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy. Once terminated, we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your emails from our Website. If you don’t log in to your account for 12 or more months, we may treat your account as “inactive” and permanently delete the account and all the data associated with it.
5. Account and Password
You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to, whether or not you authorized the use. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only reset your password.
6. Account Disputes
We don’t know the inner workings of your organization or the nature of your personal relationships, and we don’t arbitrate disputes over who owns an account. You won’t request access to or information about an account that’s not yours, and you’ll resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide 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 we’ll rely on the contact information listed for that account.
Our charges for subscription are posted on our Website and may be changed from time to time. If any part of a month is included in the Term, then payment is due for the full month. Payments are due for any month on the same or closest date to the day you made your first monthly payment (the “Pay Date”).
8. Credit Cards
As long as you’re a Member or have an outstanding balance with us, you’ll provide us with valid credit card information and authorize us to deduct the monthly charges against that credit card. You’ll replace the information for any credit card that expires with information for a valid one. Anyone using a credit card represents and warrants that they are authorized to use that credit card, and that any and all charges may be billed to that credit card and won’t be rejected. If we’re unable to process your credit card order, we’ll try to contact you by email and suspend your account until your payment can be processed.
We’ll give you a refund for a prepaid month if we stop providing our Services to you for a reason that’s not laid out in these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy. You won’t be entitled to a refund from us under any other circumstances. We may offer a refund if a Member applies for one based on the requirements posted on the Website.
10. Billing Changes
We may change our fees at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our Website and/or sending you a notification by email.
11. Proprietary Rights Owned by Us
You will respect our proprietary rights in the Website and the software used to provide Why Not Email? (proprietary rights include patents, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, and copyrights). You may only use our brand assets according to our Brand Guidelines.
12. Proprietary Rights Owned by You
14. Right to Review Email Campaigns
We may view, copy, and internally distribute content from your Emails and account to find Members who violate these Terms or laws.
15. General Rules
You promise to follow these rules:
1. You won’t send Spam! By “spam,” we mean the definition on the Spamhaus website.
2. You won’t use purchased, rented, or third-party lists of email addresses.
3. You won’t violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which is part of this Agreement.
4. If you violate any of these rules, then we may suspend or terminate your account.
16. Reporting Abuse
If you think anyone is violating any of these Terms, please notify us immediately. If you received spam you think came from a Why Not Email? user, please report it to us. If you think anyone has posted material that violates any copyrights, then you can notify us according to our Copyright Policy.
17. Bandwidth Abuse/Throttling
You may only use our bandwidth for your Why Not Email? emails. We provide image and data hosting only for your email campaigns, so you may not host images on our servers for anything else (like a website). We may throttle your sending or connection at our discretion.
18. Compliance with Laws
You represent and warrant that your use of Why Not Email? will comply with all applicable laws and regulations. You’re responsible for determining whether our Services are suitable for you to use in light of any regulations like HIPAA, GLB, EU Data Privacy Laws, or other laws. If you’re subject to regulations (like HIPAA) and you use our Service, then we won’t be liable if our Service doesn’t meet those requirements. You may not use our Service for any unlawful or discriminatory activities, including acts prohibited by the Federal Trade Commission Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, or other laws that apply to commerce.
19. Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you assume full responsibility for any loss that results from your use of the Website and the Services, including any downloads from the Website. We and our Team won’t be liable for any indirect, punitive, special, or consequential damages under any circumstances, even if they’re based on negligence or we’ve been advised of the possibility of those damages. Our total liability for all claims made about the Service in any month will be no more than what you paid us for the Service the month before.
20. No Warranties
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we provide the material on the Website and the Service as is. That means we don’t provide warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Since people use Why Not Email? for a variety of reasons, we can’t guarantee that it will meet your specific needs.
You agree to indemnify and hold us and our Team harmless from any losses, including attorney fees that result from any claims you make that aren’t allowed under these Terms due to a “Limitation of Liability” or other provision. (Indemnity is an agreement to compensate someone for a loss.) You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including attorney fees, that result from third-party claims that you or someone using your password did something that, if true, would violate any of these Terms.
22. Attorney Fees
If we file an action against you claiming you breached these Terms and we prevail, we’re entitled to recover reasonable attorney fees and any damages or other relief we may be awarded.
23. Equitable Relief
If you violate these Terms then we may seek injunctive relief (meaning we may request a court order to stop you) or other equitable relief.
23. Subpoena Fees
If we have to provide information in response to a subpoena related to your account, then we may charge you for our costs. These fees may include attorney and employee time spent retrieving the records, preparing documents, and participating in a deposition.
We and our Team aren’t responsible for the behavior of any advertisers, linked websites, or other Members.
25. Entire Agreement
Where there’s a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control.
