Instant Bulk SMTP is providing User with any or all of the following services: (a) electronic mail services; (b) search engine services; (c) merchant rebates program; and/or (d) any other services which Instant Bulk SMTP may provide in the future (collectively, the “Services”). These Services are provided to User at the discretion of Instant Bulk SMTP. User agrees that the services may include certain communications from Instant Bulk SMTP such as service announcements and administrative messages, that these communications are considered part of User’s account, and that User will not be able to opt out of receiving them. With the exception of upgraded accounts, Instant Bulk SMTP reserves the right to delete any User’s account if such User does not access their free mail account for a period of thirty (30) consecutive days.
Instant Bulk SMTP reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice to User. User agrees that Instant Bulk SMTP shall not be liable to User or any third party for any modification or discontinuance of the Services.
Instant Bulk SMTP reserves the right to change or alter its identity at any time and offer similar services to User at a domain other than Instant Bulk SMTP.com. User may be informed that User’s account known as UsersName@Instant Bulk SMTP.com, where UsersName represents User’s accepted User name, shall no longer exist at Instant Bulk SMTP.com. User may be informed that User’s account shall be available and accessible to User at a different domain. For example, UsersName@Instant Bulk SMTP.com shall change to UsersName@DifferentDomain.com where DifferentDomain represents a different domain. User may be able to access Services at DifferentDomain.com where DifferentDomain represents some domain other than Instant Bulk SMTP.com.
User understands and agrees that the Services are provided “AS-IS” and that Instant Bulk SMTP assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery, or failure to store any User communications or personalization settings. User is responsible for obtaining access to the Services and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). User is responsible for those fees. In addition, User must provide and is responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Services.
III. USER’S REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS
User must be at least thirteen (13) years old to register for the Services. Users under the age of thirteen (13) must have their parent’s or legal guardian’s consent to register for the services. In consideration of use of the Services, User agrees to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about User as prompted by the registration form; and (b) maintain and promptly update this information to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. This information about a User shall be referred to as “Registration Data.” If any information provided by User is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Instant Bulk SMTP has the right to terminate User’s account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof).
User agrees Instant Bulk SMTP or a designee of Instant Bulk SMTP may disclose Registration Data to third parties about User and information about User’s use of the Services provided that such disclosures do not include User’s name, mailing address, email address, telephone or facsimile number, or account number, unless User has authorized Instant Bulk SMTP to disclose such information, or as required by law or legal process, or as set forth in Paragraph VIII below.
The collection of private information from a User under the age of thirteen (13) is governed by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Instant Bulk SMTP will not collect personally identifiable information from Users under the age of thirteen (13) without such User’s parent’s or legal guardian’s consent. Such User’s parent or legal guardian may change or revoke consent at any time upon notice to Instant Bulk SMTP.

However, Instant Bulk SMTP reserves the right to remove any public content posted by a User that violates any law or condition of this Agreement or is otherwise objectionable.
User understands and agrees that technical (and sometimes manual) processing of email communications, search requests, community postings, and any other information supplied by User is and may be required to (a) send and receive messages; (b) conform to the technical requirements of connecting networks; (c) conform to the limitations of the Services; or (d) conform to other, similar technical requirements.

VI. USERNAME, MEMBER ACCOUNT, PASSWORD, AND SECURITY
User will be asked to choose the first part of its username which will be followed by the “@” symbol and a domain name. (A complete username might look like this: YourName@Instant Bulk SMTP.)

User represents that the username selected by the User, when used alone or combined with a second or third level domain name, does not interfere with the rights of any third party and is not being selected for any unlawful purpose.

User acknowledges and agrees that neither Instant Bulk SMTP nor any of its third party service providers shall be liable to User in the event Instant Bulk SMTP is ordered or required, as a result of a court order or legal settlement, or contractual requirement with any third party service provider, to desist from using or permitting the use of a particular domain name as part of a Instant Bulk SMTP e-mail address. If as a result of such action, User loses an e-mail address, the User’s sole remedy shall be the receipt of a replacement Instant Bulk SMTP e-mail address.
