Through the Vero software product, Invc.me Inc. (“Vero”) provides website operators and other individuals with a variety of tools and resources (including our website) to enable them to collect user and usage data and to enable website and application owners to send email messages efficiently to consumers based on their behavior (the “Services”).
Please read this Agreement carefully before proceeding with any use of our website or the Services. By using the website (the “Site”) and the Services you accept and agree to be bound by this Agreement.
If you do not accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement, please exit this website and cease using the Services immediately.
1. Services and Support
By posting updated versions of the Agreement on the Vero website, or otherwise providing notice to you, Vero may modify the terms of this 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 Vero website. Your continued use of the Services will constitute your acceptance of the variation to the Agreement. Vero will use reasonable efforts to make you aware of any changes to the terms of this Agreement. If you elect to discontinue using the Services due to any changes to the Agreement made under this section 1.1, you will be entitled to a refund for any unused, prepaid amounts for the Services.
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, your use of the Services is expressly prohibited.
The Services include, but are not limited to, the offering of any materials displayed or performed on the Site and related features (including, but not limited to text, data, software, graphics, photographs, images, illustrations, audio clips and video clips, also known as the “Content”).
Both the number of email messages sent and the number of KiloBytes of data transferred are metered by Vero. Normal Vero accounts allow you to send an unlimited number of email messages. The total KiloByte data transfer of each message can be no more than 300kb.
All email delivery prices are subject to change at any time. All fees paid to Vero for the Services are non-refundable, unless an account is terminated by you under clause 1.1. Payment for Services must be made by a valid credit card accepted by Vero, unless other payment arrangements have been made between you and an authorized Vero representative. You hereby authorize Vero to charge your credit card whenever you use the Services to send a campaign to more than 5 recipients, or on a monthly basis if you select monthly pricing. Fees are payable in US dollars. If Vero is for any reason unable to effect automatic payment via your credit card, you will be notified via email. All prices are subject to change and you are responsible for reviewing the pricing schedule from time to time and for remaining aware of the fees charged by Vero for the Services.
Vero may change, suspend or discontinue the Services for any reason, at any time, including the availability of any feature or Content. Vero may also restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability.
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 email address, username and password for your Vero account. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, username, passwords, and files and for all uses of your account and of the Services in your name. Vero reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel accounts it deems inappropriate.
It is understood that Vero makes no guarantee that HTML messages will be rendered properly on all recipients’ email programs, due to the wide variety of HTML generation tools available. Vero makes every reasonable attempt to make sure that all email messages sent through our servers follow email standards, but we cannot guarantee that messages will look consistent across all email platforms due to the number of different HTML composition tools available. For example, if you use Microsoft Word to generate HTML email messages, it is expected that recipients of your message using a non-Microsoft email application may have difficulty reading your message. For best results Vero recommends the use of HTML editors that generate HTML that adheres to W3C standards.
2. Customer Data
You acknowledge and agree that if you provide data regarding your end users or email campaigns to Vero in connection with your use of the Services (“Customer Data”), you hereby do and shall grant Vero a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable right to use, modify, reproduce, and display such Customer Data (including all related intellectual property rights) to (i) provide the Services and (ii) improve the Services’ ability to deliver web and application analytics services to you. You warrant, represent and agree that you have the right to grant Vero the rights set forth above. You represent and warrant that you own all right, title and interest, or possess sufficient license rights, in and to the Customer Data as may be necessary to permit the use contemplated under this Agreement.

Vero may, but is not obligated to, monitor Customer Data and remove any content or prohibit any use of the Services, including by refusing to send email to your end users, if Vero believes in its sole discretion such content or use may be (or is alleged to be) in violation of these Terms of Service or any applicable laws or may impact delivery. All information transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the party from whom such information originated. Vero does not assume liability for any Customer Data.
