In this Agreement “the Customer” will refer to you unless you accept on behalf of an organization in which case “the Customer” will refer to the organization.

- SERVICES AND INCORPORATION
2.1 The Company offers a variety of services available on the Emitto on enabling connectivity and the easy integration of telecommunications capabilities into software applications, including mobile, web-based, and desktop applications described on the Emitto together with the then-current pricing page (the “Services”).
2.3 Charges, Payment Terms, and Taxes
The Customer agrees to pay for the use of the Services as set out on the pricing page: https://emitto.io/pricing, which may be updated from time to time, unless the Customer has entered into a separate Agreement with the Company in which case special pricing may apply. The Company reserves the right to change the pricing from time to time.
The Customer may subscribe to several general plans or custom plans agreed within the separate Agreement, each containing different limits of features and pricing.
Different types and pricing rules are defined in the following section (2.4).
2.4 Payment Types
The several payment types will apply, depending on the service type.
(i) Advance payments:
- The Customer will be billed in advance for the Subscriptions he signs up for, including:
1.1 Plan Subscription;
1.2 Phone Numbers
1.3Viber Business Messages Subscription.
- When available, the customer can choose one of the two following options:
2.1 Monthly subscription, billed at the beginning of each month for the upcoming month;
2.2 Yearly subscription, billed at the beginning of the first month of the annual billing cycle.
(ii) On-demand billing:
- SMS Campaign
The cost of the campaign (per-message pricing associated with the Customer’s plan) will be shown and upon the Customer’s confirmation, the cost of that campaign will be charged.
- Viber Business Messages Campaign
The Viber subscription plan includes the agreed amount of monthly credits. The monthly credits expire at the end of the month and cannot be used in the following months. If the Customer wants to send more campaigns/messages than the monthly prepaid quota included with the subscription allows, the customer will be billed with per-message pricing before the campaign runs.
(iii) End of month billing
- Web Push & Facebook Messenger Campaigns
Each plan may include a certain number of free messages quota (not billed to the Customer), allocated to the Customer at the beginning of the month. Upon exceeding these quotas the Customer will be billed on a metered (per message pricing) in the 1,000 messages increment with the pricing associated with the Customer’s subscription plan. These calculations and billing will be conducted at the end of each month.
(iv) Proxy billing
- Facebook Ads
If the Customer uses Emitto’s integration with Facebook Ads to acquire subscribers, or send sponsored messages, Emitto will serve just as an interface for the Ad creation process. All the ads will be created, hosted, and billed within the Customer’s Facebook Ads manager. In this case, Emitto serves only as the Campaign creation proxy and will not charge the customer for this service. However, Emitto will take no liability for the provision of this service and its billing.
The Customer can add multiple projects within Emitto used to differentiate between Clients, Brands, and Audiences. Therefore, each project will be treated and billed separately.
In the event that the Customer cancels or downgrades an advance payment subscription, the total amount for the full billing period will be charged and the Customer would not be entitled to a refund, regardless if the Customer used the service or not.
Otherwise, the Customer shall pay for the provided Services, based on the consumption of such Services. Customer’s continued use of the Services after a price change becomes effective constitutes Customer’s agreement to pay the changed price unless the Customer has a separate Agreement or the Customer is a user of one of the custom plans. Some of the Services will be charged directly from the Company’s Services suppliers and not the Company.
2.6 The Services will be provided against prepayment by the Customer, without any right of set-off, deduction, or counterclaim to the extent, and for as long as the Customer has an outstanding balance. The Customer will pre-pay the Services by credit card or, if post-payment is not specifically agreed with the Company, pay by wire transfer to an account designated by the Company free of bank or other charges. Once the Customer registers, the Customer may receive the free trial, for one of the paid plans, free of charge for a limited period of time. After the expiration of the trial period, the Customer will be charged unless he cancels the subscription before the end of the trial.
2.7 Customer accepts that additional costs may be charged when using the Services provided by Facebook that are arranged in accordance with the Facebook Terms which Customer confirms that he had read and accepted together with these Terms.
2.8 Transactions are taken into account for purposes of the charges as recorded and computed by the Company from midnight on the 1st day of the relevant period to midnight of the last day (times are CET/CEST). Please note that the credit card data shall be processed by a third party and not the Company. The Customer obliges not to contact a third party on the subject of refunds or claims. The Customer may contact the third party dealing with the credit data only when it comes to the correction of technical details such as expiry of card, wrong added card number or holder name.
2.9 The Customer must raise any payment dispute by written notice to the Company within seven (7) days from the date of the invoice. The Customer will pay the undisputed invoice amount by the invoice due date. All reclamations should be submitted in due course to the following email address: email@example.com. The Company will reconsider payment disputes for amounts greater than 2% of the invoice amount. Once the reclamation is submitted, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to settle any payment dispute within 30 days from its submission. Each Party can choose to escalate the payment dispute to the relevant commercial contacts of the other Party. If the dispute is resolved in the Customer’s favor, the Company will correct the relevant invoice. In the case that the payment dispute cannot be resolved within 30 days from its submission the Company is entitled to terminate this Agreement and the Services without further notice. In the case that the payment is not possible via one payment method the Company will try to complete the payment through all other available payment methods ever used in relation to Services. Furthermore, the Company is also entitled to terminate this Agreement without further notice if the Customer has outstanding payments older than 15 days.
2.10 All pending payments until the moment of the Agreement Termination will be charged by the Company. The fees shown on the Emitto are exclusive of any applicable taxes payable in connection with the Services provided hereunder (including, without limitation, VAT or any relevant local sales taxes). If the Customer is a UK or EU entity, the applicable VAT or any relevant taxes will be charged.
