The Agreement may be concluded only by Clients – entrepreneurs with full legal capacity, and in relation to entrepreneurs who are natural persons – for whom the Agreement is directly related to their business activity, and this Agreement has a unique professional character for them, resulting in particular from the subject of the business activity conducted, made available on the basis of the provisions on the Central Registration and Information on Business. Vercom shall have the right to terminate the Agreement with immediate effect if it becomes aware that the Client does not meet the requirements specified above.
2. Vercom may interrupt or significantly limit the provision of its service or change the conditions of its provision, if there are justified circumstances preventing the fulfilment of the requirements concerning the maintenance of continuity of the service provision, independent of Vercom, such as failure of the telecommunications network, natural disasters, in situations of a particular threat and necessity to maintain the protection of the integrity of the network.
3. It is prohibited to use the Services to send messages containing the content of unlawful, unsolicited commercial information, as well as the use of telecommunications terminal equipment or automated calling systems for direct marketing purposes without the prior consent of the addressee.
4. The Client shall have the right to use the solutions provided to it within the Service in its promotional, marketing, transaction and information activities, including before the Activation.
5. Vercom does not guarantee to the Client the immediate sending of the Message, either because the speed of sending depends on the number of Messages, hardware, services or software used by the Client and on charging the network and the SMPT Server, unless the Client chooses additional functionality providing such a guarantee.
6. Vercom does not guarantee to the Client that the Messages commissioned for sending by the Client will be delivered to the addressee, however, it takes due care to ensure that they are delivered.
7.

Also the possibility of using by the Client some additional paid functionalities of the Vercom service in relation to the EMAIL Messages sent to the addresses of these accounts depends on the settings of these accounts by the users or these entities, therefore Vercom cannot guarantee the possibility of using all functionalities of the service in relation to all the EMAIL Messages.
8. Vercom attaches header data (SPF, DKIM) to the EMAIL Messages sent, which make it difficult for a third party to impersonate the Client and allow to increase the deliverability of EMAILs.
9. SMTP server is not an incoming mail server. Vercom does not provide the Client with the service of an incoming mail server or does not assign any incoming mail address to the Client, therefore the Client, wishing to receive answers from the addressees of the sent EMAILs, must independently obtain the provision of such a service and provide in the EMAIL an address, which may be different from the address indicated in the Login.

4. The remuneration indicated in the Price List for additional paid functionalities of the service is reduced relatively for the part of the Settlement Period in which it was not provided to the Client, due to the commencement of its provision by Vercom during the Settlement Period or due to a break in the provision of the service by Vercom, lasting in total at least 24 hours in a given Settlement Period. If the amount by which the remuneration has been reduced in a given Settlement Period has already been paid by the Customer, it is automatically credited towards the remuneration in the next Settlement Period.
5. In the event of non-payment within the specified time limit, Vercom shall immediately notify the Client thereof. If the lack of payment was due to lack of delivery of the VAT invoice to the Client, the Parties shall make every effort to ensure that this VAT invoice is delivered immediately and in the same mode payment is made for it.
6. Vercom shall be entitled to charge the Client with interest for late payment in the amount of statutory interest in force on the date of the debt incurrence.

The provisions of the first sentence shall not apply to situations in which the transfer of confidential information is strictly required by law (the Parties undertake to immediately notify the other Party of the intended transfer of confidential information). The Parties may additionally conclude a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).
