1 – Description of Jackmail
This Service enables the automatic sending of emails at the request of the User via a routing infrastructure hosted by Sarbacane Software, subject to full pre-payment and pursuant to the stipulations hereinafter.
In order to benefit from the Service, the User must have an Internet network, a WordPress account, create a user account and integrate the Jackmail plugin to WordPress Backoffice as well as have enough email credits in accordance with their needs.
Upon creating an account for the first time, the User will be able to use a trial version of Jackmail and emailing Service. This trial is limited and can be modified by Sarbacane Software anytime.
2 – Subscription
2.1 – Packs
Jackmail’s website lists all email credit packs the User may want to choose from.
Each pack is valid for a twelve-month period starting on the day Sarbacane Software confirms order validation based on the validity period the User picked.
No partial or full reimbursement will be granted and the remaining credits will not be available after the validity period of the pack expired.
2.2 – Monthly Subscription
The User may order a monthly subscription and choose the quantity of monthly email credits they need (fixed price package) as per the offers in effect on Jackmail’s website.
The subscription is valid for a 30-consecutive-day period that starts from the day the order is confirmed by Sarbacane Software.
This subscription is renewed automatically every 30 days, upon a monthly pre-payment debited from their bank card for this purpose, as agreed by the User.
When an automatic renewal occurs or when the User manually switches between monthly plans, the remaining credits from the previous period will be lost and cannot be carried over when the new period begins.
The User may terminate the subscription at any time through their user account. The request for termination should be made official the day before the expiration/renewal date of the subscription at the latest, beyond which date the termination will be applied to the following renewal cycle with no reimbursement to User, whether partially or entirely.
Whenever the User changes a monthly subscription for a pack of credits (and vice versa), the order date of the new product will also be the termination date of the preceding product. However, in case the User switches from a pack to a monthly subscription, the remaining credits will be carried forward, added to the credits available with the monthly subscription and valid for one month. In case the User switches from a monthly subscription to a pack, no remaining credits will be carried forward.
2.3 – Value of an Email Credit
An email credit makes it possible to send an email not exceeding 195kB to a recipient. Beyond that size, an extra credit will be used to send an email in each 195kB increment. The User is aware that credits are used when the campaign is tested or sent, rather than when it is received.
3 – Support
Jackmail offers the User all types of technical documents on the website. If necessary, technical assistance is available to advise and assist the User in case any technical difficulties arise while using the Service.
