All services provided by VIP Follow Up may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission or storage of any information, data or material in violation of any United States Federal, State or City law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material legally judged to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret and other statute. The Subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless VIP Follow Up from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other parties.
The following are strictly prohibited in relation to the Service:
Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, using an email address, URL that is maintained on an VIP Follow Up machine, or directing traffic to a webpage that contains any reference to VIP Follow Up.
Pornography and sexually-oriented merchandising are prohibited on any VIP Follow Up server.
Transmitting on or through any of VIP Follow Up services, any material that is, in VIP Follow Up sole discretion, unlawful, obscene, threatening, abusive, libelous, or hateful, or that encourages conduct which would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any local, state, national or international law.
Importing or in any way using purchased leads with an VIP Follow Up account. If you paid money or in any way purchased a group of pre-existing leads these may NOT be used with VIP Follow Up. This includes co-registration services, "safe lists" or any type of free leads given to you. Only people that have specifically requested information directly from you may be emailed through VIP Follow Up.
Batching or in any way trying to script the addition of new subscribers to the web form subscribe methods. A script must not be used to auto submit a web form subscriber on behalf of a website visitor. The visitor who desires to subscribe to your list must be the one to activate that subscription process
VIP Follow Up will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. This action WILL RESULT in immediate termination of your account without refund. Any service interruptions as a result of subscribers spamming will be billed to the subscriber at $50.00 per hour until service is restored. Subscriber will also be in violation of the VIP Follow Up Service Agreement and subject to legal action.
VIP Follow Up reserves the right to change the rate by notifying the Subscriber fifteen (15) days in advance of the effective date of the change.
Payment is due immediately after date of invoice. All payments must be in US dollars on deposit with a U.S. bank. The Subscriber is responsible for providing updated payment information. VIP Follow Up will not be responsible should the Subscriber's payment information become out-of-date. If payment is via check, payment is due prior to commencement of Service, payable for the entire calendar year. If payment is by credit card, the Subscriber authorizes VIP Follow Up to charge the credit card listed on the Credit Card Recurring Payment Authorization Form for those charges for VIP Follow Up services that may accrue from month to month, or for any past-due balances, in order to bring the account to current status. Credit card payments will be billed and charged automatically, and VIP Follow Up may charge the amount due to the provided card at any time.
Accounts are in default if payment is not received within twenty (20) days after date of invoice. If a Subscriber's check is returned by the bank as unredeemable, the Subscriber will be deemed to be in default, and in addition will be liable for a "returned check" charge of $25. Accounts remaining unpaid twenty (20) days after date of invoice may have their service suspended by VIP Follow Up. Such suspension does not relieve the Subscriber from the obligation to pay the monthly charges provided herein. Only a written request to terminate your Service, once accepted by VIP Follow Up, relieves you of your obligation to pay the monthly account charge. Accounts in default are subject to a late payment charge of $25 and an interest charge equal to the lesser of (i) 1.5% per month or (ii) the highest rate permissible by applicable law, on the outstanding balance. If the Subscriber defaults, the Subscriber agrees to pay VIP Follow Up its reasonable expenses, including attorney and collection agency fees, incurred in enforcing its rights under these Terms and Conditions.
All files, information and mail under the account will be preserved for twenty (20) days from the date the payment is due. If the payment is not received after twenty (20) days, all files, information and mail under the account may be deleted by VIP Follow Up. If the Subscriber wishes to use the Service again, the Subscriber must re-apply as a new subscriber.
In addition to other termination rights provided herein, Service provided by VIP Follow Up may be cancelled in writing at any time with no penalty. Customer unit name and password must be included in the cancellation request. Cancellation will take effect only when the receipt of the cancellation request is confirmed by VIP Follow Up. The Subscriber agrees that the company has the right to delete all data, files or other information stored in the Subscriber's account if the Subscriber's account with the company is terminated, for any reason, by either VIP Follow Up or the Subscriber.
System accounts may not be transferred or used by anyone other than the Subscriber. Accounts which have been transferred to other parties, or show other activity in violation of this paragraph, are subject to immediate cancellation.
VIP Follow Up shall have the right to suspend service to the Subscriber at any time, and for any reason, without notice. If such a suspension is to last for more than twenty (20) days, the Subscriber will be notified as to the reason.
If you cancel your account, we will keep the leads inactive for at least 60 days and all users will be locked out of the the account, including the Subscriber. If you reactivate the account, there is a $39 reactivation fee. After 60 days we will permanently delete all your contacts.
