WARNINGS OF SERIOUS LEGAL CONSEQUENCES
If you engage in certain conduct, such as violating laws that regulate sending out and the content of bulk email, try to take advantage of us in violation of our Terms & Conditions by using the redirect script on our server to track SPAM and unsolicited emails or failing to pay an amount you owe us, we will be entitled to cancel your membership on G-Lock Analytics. We offer a very powerful service at a low price. In exchange we expect our customers to act with integrity and follow our rules in order to help us maintain our reputation as having customers who only send bulk emails to people who have consented to receiving them or with whom they have had a relationship from earlier selling or licensing (or negotiating to sell or license) a product or service and to not otherwise abuse our system.

2.1.3. If you increase or decrease your number of subscribers to an amount that causes you to go to another pricing level, you can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time irrespectively of your Pay Date. If you upgrade your plan before the Pay Date for the following month, you will be required to pay the difference to go the higher plan in the current month.

2.3.3. If a user violates any of the terms of this Agreement, we reserve the right to cancel accounts, or bar access to accounts, without refund.
III. ANTI-SPAM AND ABUSE RELATED RULES
3.1. Definition of SPAM
3.1.1. We have adopted the definition of Spam set forth on the Spamhaus website at http://www.spamhaus.org/definition.html: “The word “Spam” as applied to Email means Unsolicited Bulk Email (“UBE”)”.
3.2. Permission Lists Only
3.2.1. It is a concern to us if you use G-Lock Analytics to track any unsolicited email sent to anyone with whom you have no relationship. It is much more of a concern, and more likely to cause our system to be blocked by our hosting company, for you to send an unsolicited email to an entire list of people you don’t know.
3.2.2. You can use G-Lock Analytics only to track Emails sent to individuals and entities that either:
– gave you written (including electronic) permission to send Emails to them, without subsequently withdrawing such permission;
– gave you their name and email address in connection with their purchase, or negotiations to purchase, a product or service from you, have not opted out from receiving your emails.
3.2.3. You should only use G-Lock Analytics to track newsletters, updates, and promotions sent to people who specifically requested email from you, or otherwise meet the requirements of 3.2.2 above. You agree that you will NOT use:
– purchased lists (no matter how expensive);
– rented lists (even if they “opted in”);
– 3rd party lists whatsoever.
3.2.4. If you send Emails to a list, and you get an unusual amount of SPAM complaints (more than 1 out of 1,000), ISPs will begin blocking future emails from your company. They will also request (that’s putting it mildly) that we shut down your account. So if you don’t have proof that each recipient on your list has opted-in to receive your emails, or otherwise meets the above requirements, don’t use G-Lock Analytics.

VII. NO LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
7.1. Under no circumstances, including negligence, shall G-Lock Software be liable to you or anyone else for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive, exemplary or consequential damages (including damages that arise from loss or anticipated revenue, loss of information or material of any kind, lost profits, loss of business and injury to property, even if G-Lock Analytics has been advised of the possibility of such damages) that arise in connection with or result from your use of or inability to use the Service including, but not limited to, your reliance on any materials, content, information, websites, mistakes, omissions, interruptions, communications failure, deletion of files or e-mail, errors, defects, viruses, trojan horses, delays in operation or transmission, or any failure of performance, or theft, destruction or unauthorized access to your records, programs, websites or software. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, and in such states G-Lock Software’s liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
7.2. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, the owners and developers of G-Lock Analytics were to be held liable for damages, then regardless of the form of action (whether in contract, tort, breach of warranty or otherwise), in no event shall the maximum liability of the owners and developers of G-Lock Analytics and the parties described in the next sentence (G-Lock Analytics’s “Related Parties”) exceed, either jointly or severally, the aggregate dollar amount paid by you to the owners and developers of G-Lock Analytics in the twelve (12) months prior to the claimed injury or damage. All of the provisions of this section are also for the benefit of the owners and developers of G-Lock Analytics’s directors, officers, shareholders, employees, affiliates, agents, third-party content providers, licensors and the like, and anyone else involved in creating, producing or distributing the software, and each shall have the right to assert and enforce the provisions directly on their own behalf.
