Limited liability company “GetResponse RUS”, registered and operating under the laws of the Russian Federation, business location address: 123610, Moscow, Russia, Krasnopresnenskaya emb., 12, entrance 3, floor 15, office 1505, (“GetResponse”, “we”, “us”) is the provider of certain online marketing and related services known as the GetResponse MAX and MAX² Service (the “Service”). The Service is a business-to-business service only. We conclude agreements only with customers who subscribe to the Service for purposes relating directly to their trade, business or profession. These Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”) set the rules for the use of the Service by our customers.
Under the Service we provide you with:
- access to and use of our web-based, SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) model platform (“the Software”) as made generally available to other Customers, that allows you to create, send, manage your marketing campaigns and host mailing lists on GetResponse platform by using tools such as: Newsletter Creator, Landing Page Builder, Marketing Automation Software, and many others;
- configuring the Software, pursuant to arrangements made between GetResponse and the Customer prior to providing full access to the Software; and
- providing the Customer with consulting services relating to the effective use of the Software.
The Software shall include the following:
- one main Account containing a unique sending identity and a database capable of storing and managing email lists and sending email campaigns (the “Account”);
- the capability of automatic communication between GetResponse and the Customer’s system to run the Customer’s Contacts database through API;
- IP address(es) allocated for Customer’s sole use within the Account (available for GetResponse MAX2 plans and for legacy MAX plans only if so agreed in your Agreement).
You may use the Service to send emails only to those recipients who have given you permission to add them to your mailing list and have not subsequently withdrawn such permission (“Contacts”), unless you have another valid legal basis to process your Contacts’ personal data within the Service.
The Account may be accessed only with the use of your login credentials. You are responsible for keeping your login credentials confidential.
Within the Account, you may create additional accounts (the “Subaccounts”) and render them available to other users of your Account (the “Users”). Creating Subaccounts for Users does not create any legal relationship between us and such Users. You are solely responsible for all Users’ activities, acts and omissions in connection with the Account and Subaccounts, as well as for your own acts and omissions. You are not entitled to sell the Subaccounts to third parties, especially as an unassisted service, without our prior consent.
You acknowledge and accept that:
You acknowledge and accept that:
- You are solely responsible for the conduct of users of Account and Subaccounts, including but not limited to: (i) ensuring that the Users use the Service in accordance with Agreement, these Terms of Service and applicable law, (ii) the consequences of granting access and authorizations to the Account and Subaccounts and the data associated therewith, and (iii) payment of any and all fees accrued in connection with the use of the Account and Subaccounts, whether by you or any of the Users;
- You are solely responsible for creating, suspending and terminating Subaccounts, except as otherwise provided herein;
- You are solely responsible for assuring technical support to the Users;
- any and all claims of the Users related to the use or non-use of the Subaccounts and the Service, as well as for their suspension and/or Agreement termination, shall be resolved solely by you; you shall indemnify and hold harmless GetResponse from any and all losses, damages, costs and expenses resulting from such claims.
Please remember that we assure technical support of a dedicated Account Manager to you, not the Users.
Upgrade and Downgrade
You may upgrade your Service or order an add-on at any time. If you upgrade the Service, the remuneration applicable to new Service Details will take effect immediately, with such increased remuneration calculated on a pro-rated basis, taking into account the number of days remaining in the then-current Settlement Period.
If you purchase an add-on during the current Settlement Period, we will align your add-on billing cycle with your payment cycle, so that the payment dates for all services under your Agreement are in line. The initial add-on will therefore be calculated in proportion to the number of days remaining until the end of the then current Settlement Period.
In case of downgrade, no adjustment will be made during the current Settlement Period.
In connection with the provision of the Landing Pages Builder add-on, we enable you to integrate your landing page(s) either with sub-domains provided by us or with your own domains. You are solely responsible for verification whether any selected domain or sub-domain name infringes any third party rights, as we cannot and do not perform such verification and we expressly disclaim any and all liability arising directly or indirectly in connection with any such domain or sub-domain names. We reserve the right to block any domain or sub-domain, cancel or change the name of any domain or sub-domain that you select, including but not limited to, if we are ordered to do so by a court or other governmental authority or reasonably believe that we must do so in order to avoid infringement or violation of any third party or GetResponse right.
The Webinar feature allows you to organize on-line conferences (“Webinars”) for a certain number of participants (“Participants”). You may use this feature for conferences in which you take part as an active Participant.
You are not allowed to run more than one Webinar at a time within one Account. Please bear in mind that Webinars may be unavailable in any particular location.
The SMS service is a functionality that makes it possible to send text messages to an unlimited, correct and verified list of telephone numbers at rates set out in the pricelist mentioned in the Account. Payment terms were specified in section V items 17 and 18 of this Terms of Service.
The SMS functionality entails the use of Third-Party Services. By using the SMS functionality, you agree for us to use subcontractors’ services involving SMS dispatch (“SMS Subcontractors”). By using the SMS service, you authorize us and SMS Subcontractors to send text messages created by you to telephone numbers indicated by you. GetResponse provides assistance in the SMS dispatch only and cannot interfere with their contents.
By entering the trade name or trademark to fill in the ‘Sender’s name’ field, you submit a statement confirming the right to use a trade name or trademark and consent to its use in order for GetResponse and the SMS Subcontractor to render the service. The statement is submitted in the Account prior to the dispatch. We reserve the right to verify the Name of the sender designated by you. If the statement is not submitted or if in doubt regarding the legality of the submitted statement we can suspend the possibility to use the SMS service until doubts have been clarified or refuse the SMS service if there is no clarification.
You confirm that you have the right to use the data used in the SMS service including telephone number specified in the list of recipients. You undertake to execute the rights vested in data subjects, including responding to communications demanding the cessation of the dispatch of SMS to those addressees who did not consent to that or who withdraw their consent.
You hereby undertake to obtain consent to send SMS from each SMS recipient included in the contact list and providing their phone number, including for the purpose of informing about your services, promoting services, conducting SMS surveys, and customer support.
To avoid confusion, such consent must be in writing and include such data of the SMS recipient as name, phone number, as well as consent to receive SMS messages using third-party services. Such consent must have a column “Refuse SMS-informing”.
The Client, who has information about the mailing list recipient in the database undertakes to obtain permission to store and use the SMS recipient’s data.
GetResponse does not verify the correctness of numbers supplied by you. The list of numbers to which the SMS are sent shall be available in the Account for 30 days as of the dispatch. After that time, the list of numbers shall be automatically deleted from the system with no possibility of its recovery. It is up to you only to create backups of files and data you use while using the SMS service. We are not responsible for any damage relating to their loss.
The SMS service can only be available for selected locations; however, we continue to work on the expansion of the list of suppliers enabling the widest possible range of the service. The SMS functionality does not make MMS messaging possible.
You can verify the technical status of the SMS service at any time HERE.
You hereby guarantee that the SMS distribution will not contain falsified data, and will not include advertising of narcotic and psychotropic substances, alcohol, cigarettes and other tobacco products, as well as other information prohibited for advertising in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation.
The Transactional Emails feature allows you to send transactional emails to your Contacts’ email addresses and check statistics of your transactional messages. You may use the feature to send transactional emails only and only to recipients who have concluded a transaction with you or have given their permission to send them those emails in any other way and have not subsequently withdrawn such permission.
Third Party Services
You may integrate certain third party services with the Service. These third party services are not provided by GetResponse. Your ability to use such third party services may be limited pursuant to the third party’s terms and conditions. When you integrate a third party service with the Service, you authorize us to exchange any of your data, whether confidential or not, with the third party service in order to enable such integration. Any links to a third party service or website that you find in the Service or on getresponse.ru or any other website or web page owned or controlled by GetResponse (collectively, the “GetResponse Websites”) are provided for convenience only and we do not control or endorse any material or information found on those third party services sites.
For Transactional Emails feature third party services are essential to generate transactional emails. GetResponse only facilitates transmission of your messages. GetResponse can’t interfere with the content of your messages.
From time to time GetResponse may offer a beta-test version of new features. This allows Customers to try new solutions we come up with and helps us better understand your needs and develop the Service accordingly. If you decide to use a feature available in beta-test version, you agree that:
- The feature is available only for a limited period of time and can be deactivated at any time and at our sole discretion;

You are obliged to timely pay all applicable fees for your use of the Service. Access to the Service is provided to you after we have received the applicable fee.
Remuneration for the use of Service is based on subscription purchased and not on an actual usage. Not using the Service, irrespective of cause, does not entitle you to reduce remuneration. Similarly, you are not entitled to reduce remuneration if late access to the service or lack of ability to use the Service is caused by you.
All payments are non-refundable. The unused Service limits, like Email Volume Allowance, or Contacts List Size are not transferred to subsequent Settlement Periods.
If you exceed limits of your Account set forth in your Agreement, you will have to pay Additional Fee. Remuneration for exceeded Users and Subaccounts Limit in a given Settlement Period is calculated based on the peak number of accounts – Account and Subaccounts and their individual Users who were active (i.e. the User’s status was set in position “ON” in the Account or Subaccounts) in any moment during the given Settlement Period.
If we determine remuneration basing on number of Contacts’ email addresses, we will monitor for the peak number of your Contacts’ e-mail addresses accumulated in all your lists, Account and Subaccounts in a given Settlement Period, which means that Contacts are unique within each list, but not within the entire Account and Subaccounts. To determine remuneration due in a given Settlement Period, the highest number of the Contacts’ email addresses is taken into account. Downgrade of the number of email addresses within a given Settlement Period does not change remuneration for the use of the Service.
You shall be in default if we don’t receive payment by the due date. If you are in default of payment we will be entitled to charge interest and exercise other rights as defined herein.
