Yeah nice, so what?
These Terms are a legal agreement between you and us. Who are ‘you’, ‘your’ and/or ‘yourself’? Well, you are a user of our Site. Who is ‘us’, ‘its’, ‘ours’ or ‘we’? Well, they mean Rabbut and/or its affiliates, subsidiaries, assignees and brands. If you continue to browse the Site by simple use, it means that you have read, understood and agreed to be bound by these Terms. Why do we even need Terms for a website? Simple: they are the rules of the game (like the rules behind the door of a hotel room); where our Terms are the rules for the Site and the products and services we offer (let’s call them our “Services”, creative, isn’t it?).
What if I don’t agree? What if I don’t care?
Well, it would be impractical to negotiate our Services with each user, much less to have them sign, so these Terms are the entire legal agreement between you and us. If you do not agree to these Terms, sorry, so, please, exit the Site and stop using our Services.
Won't someone think of the children?
We do! Rabbut thinks en enforces the protection of the rights of minors and children, and encourages parents, legal guardians and responsible adults to be actively involved in the safe use of the Internet. Under 47 U.S.C. Section 230(d), Rabbut hereby informs you about the commercial availability of parental control mechanisms which may assist you in limiting access to minors of material that is or may be considered harmful.
You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age (or older!) to use our Site and Services. If you are under such age, you must use the Site under the direct supervision of your parent, legal guardian or responsible adult.
In compliance with the terms of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (‘COPPA’), Rabbut does not (knowingly) collect any kind of information from any person under the age of thirteen (13), and will delete any such information if it has any good reason to believe it is located in its platform.
Interesting, tell me more.
Rabbut may update, modify, change, amend, terminate or discontinue the Site, the Terms, the Service or the Policy, at any time and at its sole and final discretion. Sounds preposterous? It isn’t. Actually, most websites tell the same story. A website is offered ‘as it is’. If you want a custom solution, we are happy to talk about it, just send us an email.
In short, all this means that we may change the Site’s functionalities and (any) fees at any time. But don’t worry; we will notify you through the Site or by email. If you continue to use of the Site after the last effective date of amendment to these Terms, you are indicating your consent and acceptance to any changes.
All right, so what’s in it for me?
Now we are talking, aren’t we? Rabbut provides with its users with an email marketing campaign and newsletter management web platform. You can upload email lists, email templates, create and manage campaigns. We can and will review the content of the email campaigns you send through our Service to be sure they comply with our Terms and applicable law. Absolutely no spam, pornography, tobacco, alcohol, gambling, adult content, offensive or discriminatory content, Forex or binary options will be tolerated (among other pesky things!).
