OUR SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, T2CONNECT DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT OUR SERVICES ARE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, RELIABLE, CURRENT OR ERROR-FREE.

13) Limitation of Liability
T2CONNECT AND THE OTHER T2CONNECT PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY—WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE—FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OR LOST PROFITS, EVEN IF T2CONNECT OR THE OTHER T2CONNECT PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF T2CONNECT AND THE OTHER T2CONNECT PARTIES, FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR OUR SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO ACCESS OR USE OUR SERVICES. THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION WILL NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OF T2CONNECT OR THE OTHER T2CONNECT PARTIES OR FOR ANY OTHER MATTERS IN WHICH LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. ADDITIONALLY, SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release T2Connect and the other T2Connect Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. You expressly waive any rights you may have under California Civil Code § 1542 as well as any other statute or common law principles that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.
15) Transfer and Processing Data;
By accessing or using our Services, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information about you in and to the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
16) Export Compliance
All or part of our Services may be subject to U.S. export control and economic sanctions laws (“Export Controls”). You agree to abide by all Export Controls as they relate to your access and use of our Services. You may not access or use our Services if you are located in a jurisdiction where the provision of our Services is prohibited by law (a “Prohibited Jurisdiction”), and you may not provide access to our Services to any government, entity or individual located in any Prohibited Jurisdiction. You represent and warrant that: (a) you are not named on any U.S. government list of persons or entities prohibited from receiving U.S. exports, or transacting with any U.S. person; (b) you are not a national of, or a company registered in, any Prohibited Jurisdiction; and (c) you will comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States and the country in which you are located.

18) Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with T2Connect and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or T2Connect seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or T2Connect seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and T2Connect waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in St Johns County, Florida in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and T2Connect agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and T2Connect and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
You and T2Connect agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 18 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and Company agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Company will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Company, Company will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and T2Connect agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Florida and the United States sitting in St Johns, Florida have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and T2Connect will not have the right to assert the claim.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 18 by emailing us at info@T2Connect.com. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 19.
19) Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of State of Florida, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Florida or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Florida and the United States, respectively, sitting in St Johns, Florida.
20) Changes to these Terms
We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will post the amended Terms to our Services and update the “Last Updated” date above. We may also attempt to notify you by sending an email notification to the address associated with your account or providing notice through our Services. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and your continued access to and use of our Services after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must stop accessing and using our Services.
We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use our Services. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and T2Connect relating to your access to and use of our Services. The failure of T2Connect to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. This Agreement may not be assigned or transferred by you except with our prior written consent.

We also monitor message recipients’ actions to check for above average bounce, abuse and/or unsubscribe rates. If any rate becomes abnormal, your account may be subject to manual review by T2Connect. In addition, in the event of recipients’ complaints regarding spam or unsolicited messages, T2Connect may immediately suspend or terminate your account and you will not be eligible for a refund of any kind.

SPECIAL NOTE: OBTAINING CONSENT FOR COMMERCIAL TEXTS AND EMAILS
It is important that you obtain consent from your customers and prospective customers prior to sending text and email marketing messages using the T2Connect service. Obtaining consent is not only common courtesy, but it is required by anti-spam and other privacy and consumer protection laws. The consequences for not following the rules can be quite severe, with penalties in the U.S. of $500-$1,500 per message in the case of text messages and penalties of up to $16,000 per message in the case of emails. In Canada, penalties range from $1-10 Million, and in both countries, individuals can bring private rights of actions against companies for certain violations.
It is your responsibility to ensure that all necessary consents have been obtained and recorded in compliance with applicable law. This note is provided as a courtesy and is not intended as legal advice. You should consult with your own legal counsel to ensure you are in compliance with applicable laws.
In the U.S., senders of commercial emails are not required to obtain express consent prior to sending their messages. Instead, the CAN-SPAM Act requires senders to provide an opportunity for recipients to opt out of receiving future commercial emails and to honor that opt-out request within 10 business days. To that end, commercial email messages must include a clear and conspicuous instruction that explains how the recipient can opt out of receiving future emails from the sender, such as a return email address or another easy Internet-based way to allow people to communicate their choice. Senders may create a menu to allow a recipient to opt out of certain types of messages, but one of the options must be to opt out of all commercial messages from the sender.
When sending commercial emails to residents of Canada, senders are required to obtain prior consent before sending their messages. In limited circumstances -- such as when you have an existing business relationship with the recipient -- this consent can be implied. But most often, express prior consent to send an email is required. This means that a person must affirmatively state a desire to receive emails from you; pre-checked boxes will not suffice. And you must maintain records of all consents you obtain.
In addition to an opt-out requirement, both the CAN-SPAM Act and CASL impose various content requirements for commercial emails, such as accurately identifying the sender of the email, identifying the email as an advertisement, and including opt-out instructions. These content requirements are not limited to just bulk email, but apply to all commercial messages. To help ensure that you comply with the law and best practices of the jurisdictions where you send emails, you should also do the following:
Do not use false or misleading header information. Make sure that your "From," "To," "Reply-To," and routing information – including the originating domain name and email address – is accurate and identifies your business as the originator of the message.
Do not use deceptive subject lines. The subject line should accurately reflect the content of the message.
Identify the message as an advertisement, in the subject or body of the message.
Include your contact information, including a valid physical postal address. This can be your current street address, a post office box you’ve registered with the U.S. Postal Service, or a private mailbox you’ve registered with a commercial mail receiving agency established under Postal Service regulations.
Check with your legal counsel to ensure that your messages comply with then-current legal requirements, as these may be updated from time to time.
Clearly tell recipients how to opt out of receiving future email from you. Craft the notice in a way that’s easy for an ordinary person to recognize, read and understand (e.g., using different type sizes, colors and location can improve clarity).
Make sure that your spam filter does not block opt-out requests and do not charge a fee for opt-out requests 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 you honoring an opt-out request.
Honor opt-out requests promptly (within 10 days maximum) and remove anyone who opts out from your database, regardless of how they indicate their desire to opt out. You may create a menu to allow a recipient to opt out of certain types of messages, but you must also include an option to opt out of all commercial messages from you.
II. Text Messages
A. What type of consent is required?
The consent required for text messages differs under U.S. law depending on whether the message is an informational text message or a marketing text message. If the message has any content that might be viewed as advertising or promoting any products or services then it should be treated as a marketing text message.
Informational Text Messages
For purely informational, non-marketing text messages, U.S. law requires that the recipient provide prior express consent. Prior express consent can be obtained in a variety of ways, including by implication when a person provides their phone number under circumstances indicating they intended to agree to be contacted using that number. Thus, for purely informational text messages, it is easier to demonstrate that the legally required consent has been obtained.
Marketing Text Messages
For marketing text messages, U.S. law requires that the recipient provide prior express written consent. Prior express written consent can be obtained through a signed, written agreement that clearly and conspicuously discloses to the prospective message recipient:
The prospective message recipient authorizes the sender to deliver marketing text messages using an automatic dialing system to a designated phone number; and
Consent is not required as a condition of purchasing any products or services.
The required signature for the written agreement can be obtained in any manner that complies with applicable state or federal law, including via e-mail, website form, text message, telephone key press or voice recording.
B. Text Message Best Practices
Here are some tips for best practices when it comes to text messages:
Since most customers would like to retain flexibility for sending any type of message, consider obtaining consent that meets the requirement of prior express written consent from all recipients in your subscriber list.
Only rely on prior express consent if you are certain that all of your messages will be purely informational in nature.
Never assume you have consent to send a text message. Obtain and maintain records of all consents obtained, whether in the form of prior express consent or prior express written consent.
Check with your legal counsel to ensure that your method of obtaining consent is valid and complies with then-current legal requirements - as these requirements are frequently updated by the relevant authorities.
Never send text messages to any lists you have purchased or acquired from a third party unless you have assured yourself that the persons in that database have consented to receive text messages specifically from you, or that the messages will otherwise be sent in a manner that complies with applicable law.
Allow recipients to opt out of receiving any future messages, such as by replying “stop” to any message you send. Make sure to maintain your database and remove anyone who opts out, regardless of how they indicate their desire to opt out.
You may have liability for messages sent to a number in your database if the number is re-assigned to a different person. Consider whether to subscribe to a service to track and alert you if numbers are re-assigned.
1) Your subscribers
1.1) Permission is required
When having subscribers subscribe you must ensure that they know you will be sending them emails. You should also let them know how frequently they can expect to receive emails. By having this information up front and easy for your subscribers to understand you can ensure lower bounce, unsubscription, and complaint rates.
1.2) Importing your existing subscribers
You are able to import your existing subscribers without requiring an additional opt-in process by our service. Any subscriber you import should have already opted in to receive your emails. Importing subscribers who have not directly requested emails from you in the past (using your own opt-in process) cannot be imported.
1.3) Paid lists, rented lists, borrowed lists, etc.
We do not allow any form of paid, rented, borrowed, etc. lists. If you did not directly get permission to send emails to a subscriber you cannot use our hosted email marketing service.
1.4) Using subscribers collected offline
You must have direct permission of every subscriber in your list to send them emails. This includes emails that you would obtain offline. If you ask people to subscribe offline (such as on a piece of paper) you must be able to provide documented proof of the subscribers giving you permission to email them. Please note that simply getting someone's business card is not an acceptable opt-in and you cannot import or send to emails that you have obtained from business cards.
2) Your email content you send
2.1) Types of content we do not allow
There are a number of different content types we do not allow with our hosted email marketing service. The list includes (but is not limited to):
Sexually Explicit Emails
Illegal Substances or Goods
Pills or Online Drug Purchases
Work At Home, Pyramids
Day Trading Tips, Forex, etc.
Get Rich Quick Schemes
Internet Loans, Pay Day Advances
Male enhancement products
Escort and dating services
Any content that is in one of the above categories cannot be sent using our service. There are absolutely no exceptions allowed. This is to allow us to focus on building our service and maintaining the highest level of deliverability possible.
2.2) Unsubscribe link
You must have an unsubscribe link with every email sent. This is to comply with our terms and email sending laws. We will automatically place an unsubscribe link in your emails to ensure you do not violate email sending laws.
2.3) Sender information (physical address)
You must have a full & legitimate physical address included with every email sent. The address should be the physical address of the individual or company sending the email. You can set the sender address per list by going to (Lists > Edit)
3) Your sending practices and results
3.1) High bounce rate
If you receive a high bounce rate for your campaign(s) that is a sign that you may not have direct permission to send to your subscribers or the process in which you requested/gathered subscribers does not fit our policies or industry standards. Accounts with abnormal bounce rates may be put under review. If you receive an above average bounce rate you would need to look into your process for subscriptions, ensuring your subscribers know what types of emails (and how often) they will receive when subscribing, etc.
3.2) High unsubscription rate
We continually analyze unsubscription rates from your campaigns. Accounts that have an abnormal amount of unsubscribe's may be put under review. If you receive an above average unsubscribe rate you would need to look into your process for subscriptions, ensuring your subscribers know what types of emails (and how often) they will receive when subscribing, etc.
3.3) High complaint rate
We maintain relationships with all the major ISP's to ensure top deliverability. Part of keeping a relationship with ISP's always us to analyze/obtain complaint data (in addition to complaints that are sent to us directly from subscribers) Using this data we can quickly find out if an account has an abnormal complaint rate. Accounts with above average complaint rates are put under review. By maintaining strict standards for complaints we can ensure that all of our legitimate and low complaint users have amazing deliverability.
