PLEASE READ THIS TERMS OF SERVICE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY, AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES.
This Terms of Service Agreement (this “Agreement”) is entered into by and between FastMarkIt LLC (“FastMarkIt”) and You, and is made effective as of the date of Your use of this website (“Site”) or the date of electronic acceptance. This Agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions of Your use of the Site and the products and services purchased or accessed through this Site (individually and collectively, the “Services”), including web hosting, website design, and customer support.
Whether You are simply browsing or using this Site or purchase Services, Your use of this Site and Your electronic acceptance of this Agreement signifies that You have read, understand, acknowledge and agree to be bound by this Agreement.
The terms “we”, “us” or “our” shall refer to FastMarkIt. The terms “You”, “Your”, “User” or “customer” shall refer to any individual or entity who accepts this Agreement, has access to Your account or uses the Services. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.
FastMarkIt may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change or modify this Agreement, and any policies or agreements which are incorporated herein, at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting to this Site. Your use of this Site or the Services after such changes or modifications have been made shall constitute Your acceptance of this Agreement as last revised. If You do not agree to be bound by this Agreement as last revised, do not use (or continue to use) this Site or the Services. In addition, FastMarkIt may occasionally notify You of changes or modifications to this Agreement by email. It is therefore very important that You keep Your account (“Account”) information current.

If, after Your electronic acceptance of this Agreement, FastMarkIt finds that You do not have the legal authority to bind such corporate entity, You will be personally responsible for the obligations contained in this Agreement, including, but not limited to, the payment obligations. FastMarkIt shall not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from FastMarkIt’s reliance on any instruction, notice, document or communication reasonably believed by FastMarkIt to be genuine and originating from an authorized representative of Your corporate entity. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any such instruction, notice, document or communication, FastMarkIt reserves the right (but undertakes no duty) to require additional authentication from You. You further agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement for transactions entered into by You, anyone acting as Your agent and anyone who uses Your account or the Services, whether or not authorized by You.
You agree to cooperate fully with FastMarkIt in connection with FastMarkIt’s provision of the Services. It is solely Your responsibility to provide any information that may be necessary for Your use of the Services.

No Spam. We do not tolerate the transmission of spam. We monitor all traffic to and from our web servers for indications of spamming and maintain a spam abuse complaint center to register allegations of spam abuse. Customers suspected to be using our products and services for the purpose of sending spam are fully investigated. If we determine there is a problem with spam, we will take the appropriate action to resolve the situation.
We define spam as the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE), Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE) or Unsolicited Facsimiles (Fax), which is email or facsimile sent to recipients as an advertisement or otherwise, without first obtaining prior confirmed consent to receive these communications. This can include, but is not limited to, the following:
We will not allow our servers and services to be used for the purposes described above. In order to use our products and services, You must not only abide by all applicable laws and regulations, which include the Can-Spam Act of 2003 and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, but You must also abide by this no spam policy. Commercial advertising and/or bulk emails or faxes may only be sent to recipients who have “opted-in” to receive messages. They must include a legitimate return address and reply-to address, the sender’s physical address, and an opt-out method in the footer of the email or fax. Upon request by us, conclusive proof of opt-in may be required for an email address or fax number.
If we determine the Services are being used in association with spam, we will re-direct, suspend, or cancel any web site hosting, domain registration, email boxes or other applicable services for a period of no less than two (2) days. The registrant or customer will be required to respond by email to us stating that they will cease to send spam and/or have spam sent on their behalf. We will require a non-refundable reactivation fee to be paid before the site, email boxes and/or services are reactivated. In the event we determine the abuse has not stopped after the Services have been restored the first time, we may terminate the hosting and email boxes associated with the domain name in question.
We encourage You and recipients of email generated from our Services to report suspected spam.
Liquidated Damages. You agree that we may immediately terminate any Account which we believe, in our sole and absolute discretion, is transmitting or is otherwise connected with any spam or other unsolicited bulk email. In addition, if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated then You agree to pay us liquidated damages in the amount of $1.00 for each piece of spam or unsolicited bulk email transmitted from or otherwise connected with Your Account.
This Agreement does not transfer, from FastMarkIt to You, any FastMarkIt or third party intellectual property, including, but not limited to, any logos designed or authored by FastMarkIt for you under the Services. All right, title and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with FastMarkIt.
