Through Services ("Services"), ALDnet, Inc.. ("ALDnet"), dba Instant Attention ("InstantAttention") provides companies and individuals a variety of tools and resources, namely the User Interface access and email marketing technology ("Software"). The SAAS Software includes the ability to collect website visitor e-mail addresses and to create, launch, and manage online e-mail campaigns. This Service or Software may not be used for the sending of unsolicited e-mail (referred to as "spam"). See our Anti-Spam Policy. The following are the terms and conditions for use of the Services or Software. You represent, covenant, and warrant that you will use the Services or Software only in compliance with the Agreement and all applicable laws.
Services and Support
The Services are provided subject to this Agreement, as it may be amended by InstantAttention, and any guidelines, rules or operating policies that InstantAttention may establish and post from time to time (the "Agreement"). By posting updated versions of the Agreement at the InstantAttention web site, or otherwise providing notice to you, InstantAttention may modify the terms of the Agreement and may discontinue or revise any or all other aspects of the Services or Software at its sole discretion.
The Software is 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, please do not use the Services.
The Services enable web sites to sign up web site visitors, collect and retrieve visitor sign-up data, and develop and execute e-mail communications with visitors and other targeted prospects.
All email delivery prices are subject to change at any time. All fees paid to InstantAttention / ALDnet for Services are non-refundable, unless an account is terminated by InstantAttention for a reason other than violation of the Anti-Spam Policy. Payment for Services will be made by a valid credit card or PayPal accepted by InstantAttention /ALDnet, unless other payment arrangements have been made between you and an authorized InstantAttention representative. You hereby authorize InstantAttention / ALDnet to charge your credit card or PayPal account for such amounts according to your service usage. Fees are payable in US dollars. If InstantAttention /ALDnet is for any reason unable to effect automatic payment via your credit card or PayPal account, you will be notified via e-mail.
For all accounts, InstantAttention reserves the right to delete all email reporting logs older than 90 days (archived or not), after which only summarized mailing data will be available to the user. After an account has become de-activated due to non-payment or an untimely authorization for payment, InstantAttention reserves the right to charge an account re-activation fee.
You will provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as requested in the Client Area. As part of the registration process, you will use an e-mail address and password for your InstantAttention account(s). You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, passwords, and files, and for all uses of your account. Registering for more than one (1) InstantAttention account is strictly prohibited without prior consent from InstantAttention. InstantAttention reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel or delete, accounts it deems inappropriate.
It is understood that InstantAttention makes no guarantee that HTML messages will be rendered properly on all recipients' e-mail programs, due to the wide variety of HTML generation tools available. InstantAttention makes every attempt to make sure that all e-mail messages sent follow e-mail standards, but we cannot guarantee that messages will look consistent across all e-mail platforms due to the number of different HTML composition tools available. For example, if you use Microsoft Word to generate HTML e-mail messages, it is expected that recipients of your message using a non-Microsoft e-mail application may have difficulty reading your message. For best results InstantAttention recommends, but does not guarantee, the use of HTML editors that generate HTML that adheres to W3C standards.
Restrictions and Responsibilities
This is an Agreement for Services, and you are not granted a license to any software by this Agreement. You will not, directly or indirectly: reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code, object code, or underlying structure, ideas, or algorithms of, or found at or through the Services; or copy, distribute, pledge, assign, or otherwise transfer or encumber rights to the Software. The Services shall be used for your business purposes. If you are using the Services in any country in the European Community, the prohibition against modifying, translating, reverse engineering, decompiling, or disassembling the Software does not affect your rights under any legislation implementing the E.C.

You acknowledge and agree that the Services, Software and the InstantAttention company names and logos and all related product and service names, design marks and slogans, are the property of InstantAttention or its affiliates or suppliers (collectively, the "Marks"). You are not authorized to use any of the Marks in any advertising, publicity or any other commercial manner without the prior written consent of InstantAttention.

You hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless InstantAttention / ALDnet against any damages, losses, liabilities, settlements, and expenses (including without limitation costs and reasonable attorneys' fees) in connection with any claim or action that arises from an alleged violation of the foregoing or otherwise arising from or relating to your use of the Services or Software.

Compliance rules for sending e-mail
All InstantAttention customers and end-users must follow the rules of the federal CAN-SPAM act, the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act (Bill C-28), and InstantAttention's Anti-Spam policy when sending e-mail through the service. Accordingly, we require the following of e-mail messages sent through the InstantAttention system:
- All e-mails must contain a one-click unsubscribe link. InstantAttention scans every mailing for the existence of an unsubscribe link. If an unsubscribe link is not detected, the user is informed and is recommended to include an unsubscribe link before continuing.
- All e-mails must contain non-Internet contact information of the sender, such as your company's address, and your company's phone number.
- All e-mails must state the reason the recipient is receiving the message. For example, "You are receiving this message from ABC Company because you signed up for our e-mail list at www.abc.com."
These 3 guidelines will help ensure that you and your end-users help InstantAttention maintain its reputation and white-listing status and whitelisting programs. If at any time your mailing is flagged as SPAM by a recipient, InstantAttention reserves the right to cancel your account without notice.
Email and Permission Practices
Every email message sent in connection with the Services must contain an "unsubscribe" link or other mechanism that allows subscribers to remove themselves from your mailing list. Each such link must remain operational for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which you send the message, and must be in form and substance satisfactory to InstantAttention. You acknowledge and agree that you will not remove, disable or attempt to remove or disable either link.
You agree to import, access or otherwise use only permission-based lists (note: purchased lists may not be used; please contact InstantAttention if you have questions).
You cannot mail to distribution lists, newsgroups, or spam email addresses.
You are responsible for monitoring, correcting, processing unsubscribe requests within 10 days, and updating the email addresses to which messages are sent through any InstantAttention account.
Emails that you send through the Service may generate abuse complaints from recipients. You are responsible for ensuring that your (customers) email campaigns do not generate a number of abuse complaints in excess of industry norms. InstantAttention, in its sole discretion, shall determine whether your level of abuse complaints is within industry norms, and its determination shall be final, binding and conclusive for all purposes under this Agreement.
InstantAttention, at its own discretion, may immediately disable your access without refund to the Services if InstantAttention believes in its sole discretion that you have violated any of the email and permission practices listed above, or the InstantAttention Anti-Spam Policy.
You may terminate this Agreement following the Initial Term by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending written notice to:
