Terms of Service
Last updated: January 29, 2017
Please read these Terms and Conditions ("Terms", "Terms and Conditions") carefully before using the TEARcloud.com or TotalEmailAutoResponder.com website (the "Service") operated by TEAR* (* stands for variable words after TEAR).
TEAR is owned and operated by Enzlo Inc, d/b/a TEARcloud, a Florida Corporation (“TEAR,” “we,” or “us”). TEAR has employees, independent contractors, and representatives (“our Team”). As a customer of the Service or a representative of an entity that’s a customer of the Service, you’re a “Member” according to this agreement (or “you”).
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, and confirmed when a TEAR account is created. Users and others who access or use the Services provided agree to our terms.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.
Links To Other Web Sites
Our Service may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by TEAR.
TEAR has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that TEAR shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.
We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third-party web sites or services that you visit.
When you create an account with us, you must provide us information that is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of the Terms, which may result in immediate termination of your account on our Service.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Service and for any activities or actions under your password, whether your password is with our Service or a third-party service.
You agree not to disclose your password to any third party. You must notify us immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.
In order to use TEAR, you must:
1. be at least eighteen (18) years old and able to enter into contracts;
2. complete the registration process;
3. agree to the Terms;
4. provide true, complete, and up to date contact information.
By using TEAR, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use TEAR in a way that violates any laws or regulations. (Representing and warranting is like making a legally enforceable promise.) TEAR may refuse service, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
The Term begins when you sign up for TEAR and continues as long as you use the Service.
Clicking the button and entering your username means that you’ve officially “signed” the Terms.
If you sign up for TEAR on behalf of a company or other entity,
you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms on their behalf.
3. Account Termination & suspension / Refunds
We may terminate or suspend your account immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.
Upon termination, your right to use the Service will immediately cease. If you wish to terminate your account, you may simply discontinue using the Service.
All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
You or TEAR may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by giving Notice to the other party.
We may suspend our Service to you at any time, with or without cause.
If we terminate your account without cause, we’ll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment.
We won’t refund or reimburse you if there’s cause, like a violation of these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy.
Once terminated, we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your emails from our Website.
If you don’t log in to your account for 12 or more months, we may treat your account as “inactive” and permanently delete the account and
all the data associated with it.
4. Account password
You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential.
You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to, whether or not you authorized the use.
You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords.
We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only reset your password.
5. Account Disputes
We don’t know the inner workings of your organization or the nature of your personal relationships, and we don’t arbitrate disputes over who owns an account. You won’t request access to or information about an account that’s not yours, and you’ll resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based on the content of the emails in that account, and if multiple people or entities are identified in the content, then we’ll rely on the contact information listed for that account.
5. Account Payments
Our services are currently on a monthly plan setup.
Our charges for monthly plans are posted on our Website and may be changed from time to time.
If any part of a month is included in the Term, then payment is due for the full month. Payments are due for any month on the same or closest date to the day you made your first monthly payment (the “Pay Date”). If you go over your sending limit and reach another pricing level, then you’ll have to pay at the higher level on or before the next pay date. If the Term ends before that payment is due, you’ll still be required to make one payment at the higher level.
Charges will be billed from Enzlo Inc NOT TEAR / this is no reason for disputes as this has been clearly stated.
Billing Changes: We may change our fees at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our Website and/or sending you a notification by email.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. New Terms will be effective immediately and apply to any continued or new use of TEAR. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.
1. Proprietary Rights Owned by Us
You will respect our proprietary rights in the Website and the software used to provide TEAR (proprietary rights include patents, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, and copyrights).
2. Proprietary Rights Owned by You
4. Right to Review Email Campaigns
We may view, copy, and internally distribute content from your Emails and account to create algorithms and programs (“Tools”) that help us spot problem accounts. We use these Tools to find Members who violate these Terms or laws. For example, We study data internally to make our Email Genome Project smarter and create better experiences for senders and subscribers.
Rules and Abues
1. General Rules
You promise to follow these rules:
1. You won’t send Spam! By “spam,” we mean the definition on the Spamhaus website.
2. You won’t use purchased, rented, or third-party lists of email addresses.
3. You won’t violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which is part of this Agreement.
4. If you use our API, you’ll comply with our API Use Policy.
If you violate any of these rules, then we may suspend or terminate your account.
2. Reporting Abuse
If you think anyone is violating any of these Terms, please notify us immediately. If you received spam you think came from a TEAR user, please report it to our abuse team. (The best way to tell whether an email was sent through TEAR is that every TEAR campaign has an embedded Campaign Tracking ID in the header that makes it easy to report suspected spam.) If you think anyone has posted material that violates any copyrights, then you can notify us according to our Copyright Policy.
3. Bandwidth Abuse/Throttling
You may only use our bandwidth for your TEAR emails. We provide image and data hosting only for your email campaigns, so you may not host images on our servers for anything else (like a website). We may throttle your sending or connection through our API at our discretion.
4. Compliance with Laws
You represent and warrant that your use of TEAR will comply with all applicable laws and regulations. You’re responsible for determining whether our Services are suitable for you to use in light of any regulations like HIPAA, GLB, EU Data Privacy Laws, or other laws. If you’re subject to regulations (like HIPAA) and you use our Service, then we won’t be liable if our Service doesn’t meet those requirements.
You may not use our Service for any unlawful or discriminatory activities, including acts prohibited by the Federal Trade Commission Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, or other laws that apply to commerce.
If you’re located in the European Economic Area (EEA) or send to anyone in the EEA, you represent and warrant that in creating your Email distribution list, sending Emails via TEAR, and collecting information as a result of sending Emails, you:
2. Have complied, and will comply, with all regulations, as well as data protection, electronic communication, and privacy laws that apply to the countries where you’re sending any form of email through TEAR.
3. Have collected, stored, used, and transferred all data relating to any individual in compliance with all data protection laws and regulations. You have the necessary permission to allow TEAR to receive and process data and send communications to that individual on your behalf.
4. Agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including attorney fees, that result from your breach of any part of these warranties.
5. Have signed our Data Processing Agreement.
5. U.S. Export Controls
The software that supports the Services (the “Software”) is subject to United States export controls. Export laws are set up by the government to keep certain goods and services from reaching other countries, usually because of security concerns or trade agreements. None of the Software may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported in violation of United States export laws. You’re downloading and using the Software at your own risk.
1. Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you assume full responsibility for any loss that results from your use of the Website and the Services, including any downloads from the Website. We and our Team won’t be liable for any indirect, punitive, special, or consequential damages under any circumstances, even if they’re based on negligence or we’ve been advised of the possibility of those damages. Our total liability for all claims made about the Service in any month will be no more than what you paid us for the Service the month before.
2. No Warranties
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we provide the material on the Website and the Service as is. That means we don’t provide warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Since people use TEAR for a variety of reasons, we can’t guarantee that it will meet your specific needs.
You agree to indemnify and hold us and our Team harmless from any losses, including attorney fees that result from any claims you make that aren’t allowed under these Terms due to a “Limitation of Liability” or other provision. (Indemnity is an agreement to compensate someone for a loss.) You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including attorney fees, that result from third-party claims that you or someone using your password did something that, if true, would violate any of these Terms.
4. Attorney Fees
If we file an action against you claiming you breached these Terms and we prevail, we’re entitled to recover reasonable attorney fees and any damages or other relief we may be awarded.
5. Equitable Relief
If you violate these Terms then we may seek injunctive relief (meaning we may request a court order to stop you) or other equitable relief.
6. Subpoena Fees
If we have to provide information in response to a subpoena related to your account, then we may charge you for our costs. These fees may include attorney and employee time spent retrieving the records, preparing documents, and participating in a deposition.
We and our Team aren’t responsible for the behavior of any advertisers, linked websites, or other Members.

If it turns out that a section of this Agreement isn’t enforceable, then that section will be removed or edited as little as necessary, and the rest of the Terms will still be valid.
The headers and sidebar text are provided only to make this agreement easier to read and understand. The fact that we wrote these Terms won’t affect the way this Agreement is interpreted.
8. Amendments and Waiver
Amendments or changes to these Terms won’t be effective until we post revised Terms on the Website. If we don’t immediately take action on a violation of these Terms, we’re not giving up any rights under the Terms, and we may still take action at some point.

11. Notification of Security Breach
In the event of a security breach that may affect you or anyone on your Email distribution lists (each a “List”), we’ll notify you of the breach and provide a description of what happened. If we determine, and notify you, that you need to forward all or part of that information to anyone on your Lists, you’ll promptly do so.
Any notice to you will be effective when we send it to the last email or physical address you gave us or posted on our Website. Any notice to us will be effective when delivered to us along with a copy to our legal counsel: Attn.
