Service Specific Terms 

TXTinIT

The terms in this section apply to the use of the TXTinIT “plug-in" to the CRM software owned by salesforce.com ("TXTINIT"). TXTinIT enables 2-way text messaging functionality with the CRM platform of salesforce.com. 

(1) When you register to use TXTin't you will be required to select a partner provider (eg telecommunications provider) to undertake the carriage of messages that you send using TXTinIT. You acknowledge and agree that Adept may receive remuneration from any such partner provider based on the volume of messages that you send using TXTinIT and/or the value of fees that you pay the partner provider for the carriage of the messages using TXTinIT. 

(2) You are solely responsible for contacting your partner provider and organising an account to send messages with that partner provider. You shall comply with all terms of service/use of the partner provider and shall pay all fees levied by the partner provider for the carriage of your messages using TXTinIT. 

(3) You acknowledge that all outgoing messages that you send using TXTinIT do not pass through any server or platform of Adept. We cannot access such messages in any way. We only have the ability to ascertain the total number of messages you send using TXTinIT, but not the content of those messages. 

(4) You acknowledge that all in-bound messages using TXTinIT (including "delivery receipt" messages) are brokered (via a secure SSL channel) operated by a third party. The messages are directed by this SSL channel to Adept’s servers (located in Sydney, Australia and hosted with Amazon AWS) before being transmitted to your salesforce.com account. Once the in-bound message has been transmitted to your salesforce.com account the body of the message is removed from Adept’s server and only the metadata remains on Adept’s server database. 

(5) If the relevant partner provider service is down then Adept will re-try to send messages for a reasonable period of time. If a message has not been successfully transmitted to the partner provider within 3 hours of sending then Adept will stop trying to send the relevant message(s). 

(6) Adept makes no representation or warranty that any message sent using TXTinIT will reach its intended recipient. For the avoidance of doubt, all limitations, warranties, disclaimers and indemnities in the General Terms apply to your use of TXTinIT. Without limitation to the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that TXTinIt may send erroneous messages from your salesforce.com account and that you may be charged for any such messages by the relevant partner provider. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, Adept accepts no responsibility for any such erroneous messages or defects in TXTinIT. Your use of TXTinIT is at your own risk in all respects. 

(7) You must ensure that any message you send using TXTinIt contains an "unsubscribe" function where required by any relevant laws and that you action all "unsubscribe" requests within 5 business days (or such shorter period as may be required at law). Each such "unsubscribe” link must remain active for at least 30 days after you first send the relevant message. 

(8) You may not use TXTinIT to send bulk or commercial messages to third parties unless each applicable third party has opted in and agreed to receive such messages from you. 

(9) All messages sent using TXTinIt must contain non-internet contact information of the sender or the entity on whose behalf the message was sent, such as that entity's address or phone number. 

(10) All messages sent using TXTinIt must state the reason the recipient is receiving the message. For example, "You are receiving this message from XYZ Company because you signed up for our email list at www.abc.com."
