SECTION 11. SPECIAL RULES APPLICABLE TO THE EMAIL AND SMS CREDITS.
11.1. Number of credits per SMS sent. The Client acknowledges and accepts that the determination of the number of Pre-Paid SMS Credits and/or Recurring SMS Credits («SMS credits ») ) charged per each SMS message sent through the Acumbamail Platform may vary depending upon the country of destination. The Client acknowledges and accepts that the determination of the number of SMS Credits charged per sent message will be made taking into consideration, from time to time, the cost of sending the message and, in general, the costs related to the telephone and/or telematic service at the moment of the mailing. The Client is aware that Acumbamail publishes and periodically updates a SMS Credits Table which sets forth the number of SMS Credits charged per country. Acumbamail will provides notice into the Acumbamail Platform for any change made to such table. The Client undertakes to review such table prior to each mailing of SMS, regardless of whether a notice of changes has been sent to the Acumbamail Platform. The Client acknowledges and accepts that the values set forth in the above-mentioned table are determined by assuming, in each individual distribution list related to the Client, an allocation among the individual telephone operators reasonably in line with their market share. If the allocation of one or more distribution lists is not in line with the market shares held, the amount of the credits charged for the SMS sent to users on such list may be increased proportionally. This increase is essentially due to the higher cost related to the telephone service.
11.2. Number of credits per SMS received. The Client acknowledges and accepts that the determination of the number of SMS Credits charged per message received may vary based on the cost of received the message and, in general, the costs related to the telephone and/or telematics service at the moment of the mailing applicable in each country. The Client declares that it is aware of the fact that the higher cost charged to Acumbamail in connection with the telephone service will be apparent only after the Client’s receipt of SMS. The Client therefore accepts that Acumbamail may charge to the Client the greater amount due only once the higher cost incurred becomes known.
11.3. No sufficient SMS credits When the cost of the mailing of a SMS message exceeds the number of the available SMS credits, the Client shall charge its own account with an amount of credits that is sufficient to cancel such negative balance. In case of the Client do not charge additional credits, the Client acknowledges and accepts that the SMS messages will not be delivered until the number of credits is sufficient.
11.4. Limits. The Client is aware and accepts that SMS messages addressed to telephone numbers with special rates or premiums or to non-geographical numbers (for example, without any limitation, numbers which begin with the prefix 118, 704, 803, 806, 807, 901, 902, 905, 907, 908 and/or 909) will not be sent.
11.5. Phone number for mailing and receiving SMS. Where Acumbamail assigns, upon the Client's request, a number for sending and/or receiving SMS messages, the Client declares that it is aware that the assigned number is, and shall remain, the property of Acumbamail or, if applicable, of its third-party supplier.
11.6. No sufficient Email credits for ordinary newsletter campaigns or SMTP In case the mailing of an email campaign determines an exceeding of the threshold as per the active Email Plan or of the amount of the available Pre-paid Email Credits, based on the Email Plan active at the time of the mailing Acumbamail will automatically charge the Client for an extra amount per each email sent as per the table available here: https://soporte.acumbamail.com/article/118-informacion-sobre-tarifas-de-pago#cambio_tarifawith a minimum amount of euro 1,00. The Client authorizes Acumbamail to automatically charge Client for these additional amounts and debit Client’s credit card (or other payment method).The Client is aware and accepts that the email campaign will be sent only if the payment charge is successful. Acumbamail disclaims any liability in connection with any claims that the Client may have relating to any email campaigns not sent due to any unsuccessful payment.
