These Terms of Service (“Terms”, “Terms of Service”, “Agreement”, or “Service Agreement”) govern your relationship with the Flute Mail Service (the “Service”) operated by Flute Systems, Inc. (“us”, “we”, or “our”). It is important that you read this carefully because you will be legally bound to these terms.
Your access to and use of the Service is based on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, customers, and others who access or use the Service.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms and accept all legal consequences. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, in whole or in part, please do not use the Service.
Description of Service
The “Service” means (a) the Flute Mail API for email delivery, the Flute Mail Dashboard (at dashboard.flutemail.com), and related systems and technologies, as well as the website https://flutesystems.com or https://flutemail.com (the “Site”), and (b) all software (including the Software, as defined below), applications, data, text, images, and other content made available by or on behalf of Flute Systems. Any modifications to the Service are also subject to these Terms. Flute Systems reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service or any feature or functionality thereof at any time without notice. All rights, title and interest in and to the Service will remain with and belong exclusively to Flute Systems.
Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set on a regular basis, typically monthly or yearly.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the same conditions unless you cancel it or Flute Systems, Inc. cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting Flute Systems’ customer support team.
A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide Flute Systems, Inc. or its third-party payment processor, with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, and valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Flute Systems, Inc. to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments. All amounts paid are non-refundable. You further agree to be responsible for all taxes associated with the Service, along with any transaction fees and currency conversions added by your financial institution and intermediaries. All amounts are in US Dollars, unless otherwise explicitly stated.
Flute Systems, Inc. may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time (“Free Trial”).
You may be required to enter your billing information in order to sign up for the Free Trial.
If you do enter your billing information when signing up for the Free Trial, you will not be charged by Flute Systems, Inc. until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you cancelled your Subscription, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected.
At any time and without notice, Flute Systems, Inc. reserves the right to (i) modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer, or (ii) cancel such Free Trial offer.
Flute Systems, Inc., in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
Flute Systems, Inc. will provide you with reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
While all amounts paid are non-refundable, certain refund requests for Subscriptions may be considered by Flute Systems, Inc. on a case-by-case basis and granted at the sole discretion of Flute Systems, Inc..
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.
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.
You may not use as a username the name of another person or entity or that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity other than you without appropriate authorization, or a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene.

You are entitled to cease using our Services at any time and for any reason without notice to us, but you will continue to be charged for Services until you cancel your account by logging in or contacting us.
Our duty is to keep our Service as safe and well maintained as possible. To this end, we may need to terminate accounts for violations of these Terms. In the following circumstances we will provide notice to you prior to termination of your account: (a) you are in breach of these Terms; or (b) you are using our Services in a way that can cause or has caused a risk of harm or loss to either Flute Systems or our other customers.
In such an event our notice will be via email to all or any of the registered account holders as they are listed in your account at the time of notice. If you remedy the issues that cause us to send the notice, to our satisfaction, then we will not terminate your access or license to our Services. If you do not remedy the outstanding causes of our termination notice in these circumstances, then we will terminate your account. In the event of such a termination we will provide you with the ability to take your data with you.
There are three very limited circumstances in which we will be unable to send notice to you prior to terminating your access to our Services: (i) you are in material breach of these Terms in such a way as to immediately and seriously endanger us and other users; (ii) we are unable to send you notice because this would cause us legal liability or a disruption to our Service; and (iii) we are unable to notify you due to law. If we terminate your account for the reasons outlined in i-iii, then we will work with you to ensure you retain copies of your data, wherever permitted by law.
All provisions of the Terms shall survive termination, including without limitation: ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability. Upon termination, your right to use the Service will immediately cease.
Limitation Of Liability
Flute Systems, Inc., its directors, employees, partners, agents, suppliers, or affiliates, shall not be liable for (A) any loss or damage, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages, including without limitation, economic loss, loss or damage to electronic media or data, goodwill, or other intangible losses, or (B) for any amount in the aggregate in excess of the fees actually paid by you in the four (4) months preceding the event giving rise to your claim, resulting from (i) your access to or use of the Service; (ii) your inability to access or use the Service; (iii) any conduct or content of any third-party on or related to the Service; (iv) any content obtained from or through the Service; and (v) the unauthorized access to, use of or alteration of your transmissions or content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence) or any other claim in law, whether or not we have been informed of the possibility of such damage, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
Disclaimer And Non-Waiver of Rights
Flute Systems, Inc. makes no guarantees, representations or warranties of any kind as regards the website and associated technology. Any purportedly applicable warranties, terms and conditions are excluded, to the fullest extent permitted by law. Your use of the Service is at your sole risk.
The Service is provided on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. The Service is provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement or course of performance, except as provided for under the laws of any province in Canada. In such cases, the provincial law shall apply to the extent necessary.
Flute Systems, Inc. its subsidiaries, affiliates, and its licensors do not warrant that a) the Service will function uninterrupted, secure or available at any particular time or location; b) any errors or defects will be corrected; c) the Service is free of viruses or other harmful components; or d) the results of using the Service will meet your requirements.
If you breach any of these Terms and Flute Systems, Inc. chooses not to immediately act, or chooses not to act at all, Flute Systems, Inc. will still be entitled to all rights and remedies at any later date, or in any other situation, where you breach these Terms. Flute Systems, Inc. does not waive any of its rights. Flute Systems, Inc. shall not be responsible for any purported breach of these Terms caused by circumstances beyond its control. A person who is not a party to these Terms shall have no rights of enforcement.
You may not assign, sub-license or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these Terms.
As set out, above, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you. Provincial laws of Canada may apply to certain products and service provided.
These Terms shall be governed by, and interpreted and enforced in accordance with, the laws in the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada, as applicable.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then any remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements, oral or otherwise, regarding the Service.
All disputes and questions whatsoever which shall arise between Flute Systems Inc. and you in connection with this Service Agreement, or the construction or application thereof or any provision contained in this Service Agreement or as to any act, deed or omission of any party or as to any other matter in any way relating to this Service Agreement, shall be resolved by arbitration. Such arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator.
The arbitrator shall be appointed by agreement between the parties or, in default of such agreement, such arbitrator shall be appointed by a Judge of the Superior Court of Justice sitting in Toronto, upon the application of any of the parties and such judge shall be entitled to act as such arbitrator, if he or she so desires.
Unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, arbitration shall be held in the City of Toronto, Province of Ontario. The procedure to be followed shall be agreed to by the parties or, in default of such agreement, determined by the arbitrator. The arbitration shall proceed in accordance with the provisions of the Arbitration Act 1991 (Ontario). The arbitrator shall have the power to proceed with the arbitration and to deliver his or her award notwithstanding the default by any party in respect of any procedural order made by the arbitrator.
The decision arrived at by the arbitrator shall be final and binding and no appeal shall lie therefrom. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will make reasonable efforts 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. If you do not agree to the new terms, in whole or in part, please stop using the website and the Service.
