The Fusionexpress Terms of Use

Fusionexpress (the “Services”) Fusionexpress (“Fusionexpress”) provides web site operators and other individuals a variety of tools and resources to collect visitor e-mail addresses and to create, launch, and manage online e-mail campaigns. This service may not be used for the sending of unsolicited e-mail (sometimes called “spam”). See our Anti-Spam Policy. The following are the terms and conditions for use of the Services. By checking the “I have read the LegalRSS & Fusion Express Terms and Conditions and agree to them fully” box below or after logging in for the first time, you accept these terms and conditions.

1. Services and Support

1.1 The Services are provided subject to this Agreement, as it may be amended by Fusionexpress, and any guidelines, rules or operating policies that Fusionexpress may establish and post from time to time (the “Agreement”). By posting updated versions of the Agreement at the Fusionexpress web site, or otherwise providing notice to you, Fusionexpress may modify the terms of the Agreement and may discontinue or revise any or all other aspects of the Services at its sole discretion. All such changes shall become effective upon posting of the revised Agreement on the Service.

1.2 The Services are available only to persons who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Services are not available to individuals under the age of 18. If you do not qualify, please do not use the Services.

1.3 The Services enable corporate web sites, small business web sites, and community sites to sign up web site visitors, collect and retrieve visitor sign-up data, and develop and execute e-mail communications with visitors and other targeted prospects.

1.4 Both the number of e-mail messages sent and the number of KiloBytes of data transferred are metered by Fusionexpress. Normal Fusionexpress accounts allow you to send an unlimited number of e-mail messages. The total KiloByte data transfer of each message can be no more than 100kb.

1.5 All email delivery prices are subject to change at any time. All fees paid to GoTripod Limited for Fusionexpress are non-refundable, unless an account is terminated by Fusionexpress for a reason other than violation of the Anti-Spam Policy. All prices are subject to change and you are responsible for reviewing the Pricing Schedule from time to time and remaining aware of the Fees charged by Fusionexpress.

1.6 For all accounts, Fusionexpress may charge an account re-activation fee should an account need to be re-activated by customer after an account has become de-activated due to non-payment or an untimely authorization for payment.

1.7 You must complete the registration form on the Free Trial page in order to use the Services. You will provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as requested in the registration form. As part of the registration process, you will identify an e-mail address and password for your Fusionexpress account. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, passwords, and files, and for all uses of your account and of the Services in your name. Fusionexpress reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel, accounts it deems inappropriate.

1.8 It is understood that Fusionexpress makes no guarantee that HTML messages will be rendered properly on all recipients’ e-mail programs, due to the wide variety of HTML generation tools available. Fusionexpress makes every attempt to make sure that all e-mail messages sent through our servers follow e-mail standards, but we cannot guarantee that messages will look consistent across all e-mail platforms due to the number of different HTML composition tools available. For example, if you use Microsoft Word to generate HTML e-mail messages, it is expected that recipients of your message using a non-Microsoft e-mail application may have difficulty reading your message. For best results Fusionexpress recommends, but does not guarantee, the use of HTML editors that generate HTML that adheres to W3C standards.

2. Restrictions and Responsibilities

2.1 This is an Agreement for Services, and you are not granted a license to any software by this Agreement. You will not, directly or indirectly: reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code, object code, or underlying structure, ideas, or algorithms of, or found at or through the Services or any software, documentation, or data related to the Services (“Software”); remove any proprietary notices or labels from the Services or any Software, modify, translate, or create derivative works based on the Services or any Software; or copy, distribute, pledge, assign, or otherwise transfer or encumber rights to the Services or any Software. The Services shall be used for your internal business (which includes civic or charitable) purposes only and you shall not use the Services or any Software for timesharing or service bureau purposes or otherwise for the benefit of a third party. If you are using the Services in any country in the European Community, the prohibition against modifying, translating, reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembling or creating derivative works based on the Services or the Software does not affect your rights under any legislation implementing the E.C. Council Directive on the Legal Protection of Computer Programs.

2.2 You acknowledge and agree that the Services and the Fusionexpress company names and logos and all related product and service names, design marks and slogans, are the property of Fusionexpress or its affiliates or suppliers (collectively, the “Marks”). You are not authorized to use any of the Marks in any advertising, publicity or any other commercial manner without the prior written consent of Fusionexpress. Your use of the Services confers no title or ownership in the Service, the Software or the Marks and is not a sale of any rights in the Service, the Software or the Marks. All ownership rights remain in Fusionexpress or its third party suppliers, as the case may be.

2.3 You represent, covenant, and warrant that you will use the Services only in compliance with the Agreement and all applicable laws including but not limited to policies and laws related to spamming, privacy, obscenity, or defamation).

You hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless Fusionexpress against any damages, losses, liabilities, settlements, and expenses (including without limitation costs and reasonable attorneys’ 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. Although Fusionexpress has no obligation to monitor the content provided by you or your use of the Services, Fusionexpress 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.

2.4 The Services may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission or solicitation of any material that violates Australian federal, state or other laws that may apply in your local area is prohibited.

7.4 In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under the Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its costs and attorneys’ fees.

8. System Requirements

It is understood that in order to use Fusionexpress, a Windows PC with Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher must be used. Additionally, a stable connection to the Internet is required. Fusionexpress may work in a limited manner on Macintosh, Unix, and other platforms, but there is no guarantee of functionality on non-Windows platforms. Additionally, Fusionexpress may work in a limited manner on a non-Internet Explorer web browser (such as Netscape Navigator), but there is no guarantee of full functionality on web browsers other than Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

9. Compliance rules for sending e-mail

All Fusionexpress customers must follow the rules of the federal CAN-SPAM act and Fusionexpress’s Anti-Spam Policy when sending e-mail through the service. Accordingly, we require the following of e-mail messages sent through the Fusionexpress system:

  1. All e-mails must contain a one-click unsubscribe link. Fusionexpress scans every campaign for the existance of an unsubscribe link. If an unsubscribe link is not detected, the user is informed and is recommended to include an unsubscribe link before continuing.
  2. All e-mails must contain non-Internet contact information of the sender, such as your company’s address, or your company’s phone number.
  3. All e-mails must state the reason the recipient is receiving the message. For example, “You are receiving this message from ABC Company because you signed up for our e-mail list at www.abc.com.”

These 3 guidelines will help ensure that Fusionexpress maintains its reputation and white-listing status with a number of major ISPs and whitelisting programs. If at any time your campaign is flagged as SPAM by an AOL recipient, Fusionexpress reserves the right to cancel your account without notice.

10. Email and Permission Practices

10.1 Every email message sent in connection with the Services must contain an “unsubscribe” link or other mechanism that allows subscribers to remove themselves from your mailing list. Each such link must remain operational for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which you send the message, and must be in form and substance satisfactory to Fusionexpress. You acknowledge and agree that you will not remove, disable or attempt to remove or disable either link.

10.2 You agree to import, access or otherwise use only permission-based lists (note: purchased lists may not be used; please contact Fusionexpress if you have questions).

10.3 You cannot mail to distribution lists, newsgroups, or spam email addresses.

10.4 You are responsible for monitoring, correcting, processing unsubscribe requests within 10 days, and updating the email addresses to which messages are sent through your Fusionexpress account.

10.5 Emails that you send through the Service may generate abuse complaints from recipients. As a matter of privacy, Fusionexpress cannot share with you the email addresses of those who complain about your email campaign. You are responsible for ensuring that your email campaigns do not generate a number of abuse complaints in excess of industry norms. Fusionexpress, in its sole discretion, shall determine whether your level of abuse complaints is within industry norms, and its determination shall be final, binding and conclusive for all purposes under this Agreement.

10.6 Fusionexpress, at its own discretion, may immediately disable your access without refund to the Services if Fusionexpress believes in its sole discretion that you have violated any of the email and permission practices listed above, or the Fusionexpress Anti-Spam Policy.
