Email marketing agreement
This email marketing agreement can be used in relation to three different kinds of email marketing service. First, where a service provider is actively managing a campaign for the customer. Second, where the service provider is making available a platform to allow the customer to conduct their own campaigns. Third, where both types of service are being provided.
Different legal issues affect the different types of service. For example, in relation to managed email services, the service provider will often require cooperation from the customer. In relation to platform services, the service provider will want to ensure that the customer does not misuse the platform. In relation to both types of service, the parties will want assurances that email marketing lists are being properly collected and that anti-spam laws are not being broken.
An optional acceptable use policy is attached as a schedule to this document. It may be used to regulate the use of an email marketing platform by the customer.
This document is very similar to our email marketing terms and conditions document, although in a slightly different form.
