We use the SPAM definition provided by Spamhaus:
Unsolicited means that the Recipient has not granted verifiable permission for the message to be sent. Bulk means that the message is sent as part of a larger collection of messages, all having substantively identical content. You are responsible for reviewing the CAN SPAM Act to ensure your compliance before loading lists of contacts onto our system.
You are allowed to use our service to send emails to the following recipients:
We will do everything commercially reasonable to ensure the uniform rendition of emails across a wide selection of email service providers and end user applications. However, we do not guarantee that every email will be rendered perfectly by every email client program. We put forth considerable efforts in ensuring the compliance of HTML generated by our systems with a multitude of email programs. Generally, you are safer when using our Composer to generate emails. If you use custom HTML templates, you need to perform extensive testing to ensure that it will render properly across email client programs used by your clientèle. We recommend that you perform testing of each newsletter before sending it; this can be done by using our "Quick Send" function.
You are prohibited from sending or linking to the following content while using our systems:
We reserve the right to monitor content of your campaigns and freeze or even permanently close your account if we deem your content inappropriate, based solely on our opinion.
By registering for our Service, you expressly acknowledge and represent that you are over 18 (eighteen) years of age and, therefore, have legal capacity to enter into an agreement enforceable by another party, and to be held liable for damages, costs and expenses.
If you select one of our Monthly Plans, you will be charged plan fees when you subscribe for a plan for the first time and then at the beginning of the next billing cycle. A billing cycle starts on your subscription date. For example, if you started a plan on the 5th day of the month, then all following billing cycles will start on the 5th day of the month for as long as you stay subscribed to our service. In edge cases, the closest date is selected. For example, if you subscribed for your plan on June 30th, then your next billing cycle will start on July 31st. If you subscribed on the February 29th, then the next billing cycle will start on March 31st. Therefore, we will pick the closest date to your subscription date.
You can upgrade your plan at any time. The upgrade will not affect your billing cycle. You will be charged a prorated amount for the remainder of the current billing cycle and a full amount for a new plan starting with the next billing cycle. For example, your current plan is $15.00/month, your billing cycle starts on the 1st of the month and you are upgrading to a new $30.00/month plan on the 19th of the month. We will charge your account ($30.00 - $15.00) * 21/31 = $10.16. However, starting with a new billing cycle, you will be charged a regular amount of $30.00 per month.
Downgrade works similarly to upgrade. The remainder of the balance on your plan will be used to cover the less expensive plan and your account will be credited for the next billing cycle. You will not be able to downgrade to a less expensive plan in cases when your contacts count exceeds limits of a plan you want to downgrade to.
Downgradinig to FREE plan stops your current plan as well as any charges to your credit card (except for cases of abuse). This is equivalent to closing your account or pausing plan charges on your credit card. It is a responsibility of a customer to downgrade to FREE plan. ExpressPigeon staff is not responsible for setting your plan to a FREE plan.
We reserve the right to change plans and pricing at any time with or without notice. Changing plans and pricing will not affect currently active plans.
In most cases, and especially in cases of violation of the terms or the spirit of this Agreement, no refunds will be issued. We may consider your request for a refund in some situations. Therefore, if you feel strongly that you are entitled to a refund, please contact our support at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
