1.4a Rules of conduct and acceptable use policy
The consequences of individual actions that users take can have a big impact on our abilities as a system. All users must follow the rules of conduct and acceptable use policy. If you violate this policy, we may suspend or terminate your account immediately and without prior warning.
The agreement to not send any emails to unsolicited addresses/recipients includes any individual who has communicated that your emails and/or test messages are unwanted. You agree that all emails and text messages (sent to your guests and to any third party), that are used in conjunction with the Service, were obtained specifically for the purpose of receiving correspondence from you, and are being used with explicit permission for that purpose. zkipster is not responsible for the content of emails and text messages sent to guests and to any third party by using the Service. zkipster offers reasonable effort with respect to the delivery of your emails and text messages when using the Service.

Specifically, consider the following restrictions when using our Service:
Do not use zkipster to send anything with offensive content, to promote anything illegal, or to harass any of the email recipients. You, or a third party you may have permitted to do so, may not send emails that, or perform actions that:
– constitute unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, tortious, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, offensive, profane, contains or depicts nudity, contains or depicts sexual activity, or is otherwise inappropriate as determined by zkipster in its sole reasonable discretion; or

– impersonate any person or entity, including any employee or representative of zkipster; or
– include anyone’s identification documents or sensitive financial information; or
– upload or send to purchased lists, rented lists, or third-party lists of any kind.
As email delivery is part of our services, we feel it’s our responsibility to be thorough about preventing spam-related abuse. It’s also in our best interest to keep the system clean, because our reputation and deliverability depend on it. Therefore you may only use zkipster to send emails to people and entities that either:
1. Gave you written (including electronic) permission to send emails to them, have not withdrawn that permission, and:
– gave you that permission in the past 12 months; or
– did not object to be sent invitations/be contacted for event-related emails in the past 12 months.
2. If you send emails to a list and you get an unusual amount of Spam complaints, Spam software and/or email clients will start blocking emails from your company. They’ll also ask zkipster to cancel your account. Should you not have the necessary permissions from your guests to send them emails, or should you otherwise not comply with the terms and conditions listed herein, then any import of your guests’ email addresses into zkipster’s Service is in violation with this Agreement.
This Agreement is effective for an unlimited period unless and until earlier terminated as set forth herein. zkipster may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect if you fail to comply with any of the terms and conditions described herein.
