13.5 Governing Law

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. The federal courts of the United States in the Northern District of California and the state courts of the State of California located in Los Angeles, California will have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement. Each party hereby consents to the jurisdiction of such courts.
You hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in connection with any dispute relating to, concerning or arising out of this Agreement, whether in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator and will be held at the AAA location in Los Angeles, California.

(c) Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this paragraph. In the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.
(d) No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. If you initiate a litigation or any other proceeding against us in violation of this paragraph, you agree to pay our reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with its enforcement of this paragraph.

14. Anti-Spam Policy
PLEASE READ THIS ANTI- SPAM POLICY (THE “ANTI-SPAM POLICY”) CAREFULLY BEFORE USING ANY SERVICES AVAILABLE AT MAILBERRY.COM (THE “SITE”) OR OFFERED BY OR ON BEHALF OF ITS AFFILIATES. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THIS ANTI-SPAM POLICY, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE THE SERVICES.
As an email service provider, Mailberry takes an active role in reducing spam and supporting regulatory and best-practice guidance that fosters a fair, respectful and effective email marketing community. In consideration of the many anti-spam laws in effect throughout the world and best practice guidance from industry leaders, we have created this anti-spam policy to simplify the requirements we place on our customers. Your adherence to this policy will help maintain a high reputation for our sending infrastructure which, in turn, will boost the deliverability and effectiveness of messages you send using our services.
Throughout this Anti-Spam Policy references to “Company” are references to Mailberry and references to “Customer” are to you, a user of the Services.
SECTION 1. DEFINITIONS. In addition to terms defined elsewhere in this Anti-Spam Policy, the definitions below will apply to capitalized words in this Anti-Spam Policy.
- “Anti-Spam Laws” means any and all Laws regulating the transmission of electronic messages.
- “Contact(s)” means, other than Users, any identified or identifiable natural person: 1) whose information is stored, transmitted, or otherwise ‘processed’ (as defined by the GDPR) via the Services by Customer; and/or 2) to whom Customer sends, transmits, or otherwise engages with via the Services.
- “Customer List” is a list of Contacts uploaded to the Services or created on or via the Services.
- “Distribution Email Address” means an email address associated with a distribution list that enables a User to send an email to multiple recipients by sending that email to the single email address associated with the distribution list.
- “Permission” means permission obtained from an individual to receive communications from Customer, in compliance with Section 3 below, that was either: 1) obtained within the preceding 12 months; or 2) obtained at any time and ongoing communications have been sent to the individual over the course of the preceding 12 months.
- “Privacy Notice” means the Company’s Privacy Notice located in this Terms of Service, as updated from time to time.
- “Spam”, as used herein, is any message sent by a User: 1) to an individual who has not given the User their Permission to do so; and/or 2) is marked as “spam” or “junk” mail by the recipient, including via any ISP feedback loops.
- “Transactional Messages” will have the meaning ascribed by Anti-Spam Laws.
- “Transactional Email Feature” means the feature of the Services that allows a User to automatically send communications upon the occurrence of a trigger action.
SECTION 2. REQUIRED CONTENT
- Customer understands and agrees that Customer is the “sender” (as that term is defined by Anti-Spam Laws) of any emails sent by Customer via the Services.
- Unsubscribe Link. Unless expressly agreed by Company in advance in writing, Customer must ensure that all emails sent through Customer’s Account contain a Company (or other Company-approved) “unsubscribe” link, in form and substance satisfactory to Company, that: 1) allows Contacts to instantly and permanently unsubscribe themselves from the applicable Customer List, 2) presents unsubscribe instructions in a clear and conspicuous way, and 3) remains operational for a period of 30 days after sending the email. Customers must monitor, correct, and process unsubscribe requests immediately and ensure that Users do not remove, disable or attempt to remove or disable such links. Customer understands that instead of using the unsubscribe link provided, some Contacts may use other means to submit a request to Customer to opt them out of receiving such messages. In such cases, Customer agrees to unsubscribe any such Contact manually, by changing the Contact’s mailing status to “opt-out” within 10 business days of the opt-out request using the tools provided inside Customer’s Account.
- Contact Information. Each email must clearly and accurately identify the individual or organization that authorized the sending of the email (“Authorizing Party”). This means that if a Customer is sending messages on behalf of an Authorizing Party, the Authorizing Party must be identified. For example, if a marketing agency is sending an email on behalf of its client, the client must be identified. To the extent required by law, identification must include the correct legal name of the Authorizing Party, a registered business number, legitimate physical address, and contact details. All identification information should remain valid for at least 30 days after the email is sent.
- Other Required Information. Customers shall ensure that communications sent through Customer’s Account are truthful and include subject lines that are in no way false or misleading as to the nature of the content contained in the email. All emails must state the reason the Contact is receiving the message. For example, “You are receiving this message from ABC Company because you signed up for our email list at abc.com.”
SECTION 3. PERMISSION
- Customer Representations. Customer represents and warrants that Customer has provided all disclosures required by Law in conjunction with obtaining Contact’s Permission. Customer further represents and warrants that Customer has not used any false or misleading information, names, email addresses, subject lines, or other information for the purpose of or in connection with obtaining Contact’s Permission.
- Obtaining Permission. Customer must retain records of any Permissions received and shall provide such records to Company immediately upon request. Permissions must be obtained in one of the ways described below. A Contact:
- fills out or opts in via a web form subscribing to receive marketing communications from Customer; provided that the form does not contain any pre-selected fields;
- completes an offline form that expressly indicates their willingness to receive marketing communications from Customer;
iii. gives Customer their business card; provided that Contact was informed that by providing the business card to Customer, Contact was indicating their willingness to receive marketing communications from Customer;
- has a clear relationship with Customer, as an individual that (a) pays dues or a subscription fee to belong to Customer’s organization, or (b) has purchased a good or service from Customer within the preceding 6 months, in the course of which Customer obtained that Contact’s email address and there is a reasonable expectation that the Contact would consent to receiving emails; or
- otherwise provides Customer with their express written permission to receive marketing communications from Customer.
- Scope of Permission. Customer shall not send emails to Contacts on any topic that exceeds the scope of the topic that Contact has given Customer Permission to email them about. Where a Contact has provided Permission for specific individual or organization to contact them, that Permission may not be transferred to another individual or organization. Any Permission obtained from a Contact will be exclusive to Customer and will not extend to Customer’s Affiliates, unless such Permission was also granted to such Customer Affiliate.
SECTION 4. APPROVALS, RESTRICTIONS, & COMPLIANCE
- Account Approval. Company may request specific information about Customer’s Permission practices and email marketing activities prior to allowing access to the Services and Company’s sending infrastructure. Should Company’s trained compliance team, in its reasonable discretion, find cause to delay or withhold access to the Services and Company’s sending infrastructure, Customer will be notified promptly. Customer may not send any emails using the Services until Customer’s Account has been reviewed by a member of Company’s trained compliance team.
- Bulk Uploads. Prior to any bulk and/or large Contact list uploads to the Services, Customer must obtain Company’s prior written approval, which may be withheld in Company’s sole discretion.
- Company API. The Services provide API Calls (“Calls”) to facilitate certain account activities without relying on the Services’ main application interface. These Calls are governed by the same policies set forth herein. The Customer and its Users shall not use the API to circumvent Company’s efforts to facilitate Permission-based sending via the Services. Company may dictate, in its sole discretion, permissible use of the API and Calls. Any improper use of the API, as solely determined by Company, will be grounds for immediate termination of Customer’s account.
- Prohibited Uses. There are some list collection methods, sending practices, and models of business which are irreconcilably at odds with Company’s Permission policy or which represent untenable risk to the reputation of Company’s sending infrastructure. Customer shall not:
- mail to Distribution Email Addresses, emails addresses copied or scraped from the internet (or to Contact email addresses otherwise programmatically obtained from any physical or electronic source); newsgroups, or purchased, loaned, or rented lists;
- mail to any Contacts obtained from a third party (unless such third party specifically obtained Permission from the Contact for Customer to mail them);
iii. mail to co-promotion lists, where more than one potential sender is given access to email addresses collected without the recipient’s willful, sender-specific consent;
- use the Transactional Email Feature to send non-Transactional Messages to Contacts unless you have Permission to do so;
- use the Services to administer illegal contests, pyramid schemes, chain letters, multi-level marketing campaigns, or otherwise conduct any illegal activities; or
- take known demographic information and append it to information Customer obtains from a third party for the purpose of emailing an individual who has not otherwise provided Permission as required by this Anti-Spam Policy.
- Compliance. Customer acknowledges that the Services allow Customer to upload data related to Contacts and also to track Contacts engagement with emails sent using the Services. Customer represents and warrants that Customer has complied with all notice, disclosure, consent, and other requirements imposed by applicable Laws prior to uploading information about a Contact to Customer’s Account. Customer further represent and warrants that Customer shall comply with the Acceptable Use Policy, Agreement, and all applicable Laws in connection with Customer’s use of the Services.
SECTION 5. COMPANY’S RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
- Contacts. Company will not use Contacts’ information for any purpose other than those related to the Services and as otherwise described in Company’s Privacy Notice.
- Monitoring. Company reserves the right to inspect and monitor Customer’s Account and Customer Content at any time, without notice, to ensure compliance with the terms of this Anti-Spam Policy. In connection with the foregoing, Customer agrees to promptly provide records and/or other information requested by Company. In addition, Company reserves the right, but has no obligation, to:
- scan every campaign for the existence of an unsubscribe link. If an unsubscribe link is not detected, Customer will be informed and required to include Company’s unsubscribe link before sending additional email messages or Customer Content via the Services.
- monitor and meter the number of kilobytes of data transferred when sending email messages.
iii. monitor any and all Customer Content and Customer’s use of the Services to ensure compliance with this Anti-Spam Policy.
- Abuse Complaints & Remediation. Emails sent through the Services may generate abuse complaints from Contacts. Customer is responsible for ensuring that email campaigns sent from Customer’s Accounts do not generate a number of complaints in excess of industry norms. If Customer’s complaint rate exceeds industry norms, Company may take action to prevent or repair damage to the sending reputation of its sending infrastructure, including suspending Customer’s Account. In the event that Company sends Customer a notification regarding excessive spam complaints, Customer must respond to Company’s requests promptly and act in good faith by participating in the creation and/or execution of any remedy. If Customer is unresponsive, does not implement remediation measures in accordance with Company’s recommendations within thirty (30) days of Company’s notification to Customer, and/or Customer continues to experience high complaint rates (as determined by Company in its reasonable discretion), then Company may suspend Customer’s use of the Services until the issue is resolved or until the end of the period specified by the contract.
- Right to Terminate. Company may, in its reasonable discretion, remove any Customer Content, suspend, or terminate (without refund) Customer’s use of the Services for any actual breach of this Anti-Spam Policy at any time. For clarity, removal, suspension, or termination pursuant to this clause will not terminate Customer’s obligation to pay fees owed to Company.

If you feel you have received SPAM from our customer, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we find that our anti-SPAM policy has been violated, we may terminate the violator’s account.
