By making any use of the Services, you expressly warrant that you are and shall continue to act in full compliance with the law.

You affirm that you have read and comprehend all relevant laws and regulations, including the Electronic Messaging Laws and any related state, provincial, or territorial laws. You are aware that sometimes state and local regulations are more stringent than federal regulations. To be sure you comprehend and abide by these guidelines, you should go over them with your own legal counsel. Chatmatic won't be in charge of making sure your actions adhere to all relevant legal regulations. If you are ever found guilty of breaking a law, rule, or regulation, Chatmatic will not be held responsible. Despite the aforementioned, you acknowledge that Chatmatic has taken and is continuing to take proactive measures to support its customers' compliance, including by having you accept these Terms.

You realize and agree that calling, texting, or emailing a consumer without first getting their express written agreement is typically against federal law, including the TCPA. Chatmatic is not liable for ensuring that you do not send messages to customers by phone or email that aren't permitted without their authorization.

You recognize that it is typically against Canadian federal legislation, including CASL, to contact a customer by phone, text message, electronic messaging, or email without first receiving the consumer's express written consent. Unless you have obtained that person's consent in accordance with the relevant law, you will not contact that person through the Services or regarding the Services. Upon our request, you must give us evidence of any such consents or opt-ins, the messages you sent, and how you handled unsubscribe requests. Your messages must contain any information required by applicable regulations, such as your name, mailing address, an email, phone number, or website, as well as a way for recipients to unsubscribe.

If a person using the Services has opted out or withdrawn their consent, including if they have responded "STOP" or something similar to one of your earlier messages, you will not send them any messages. You alone, not Chatmatic, are accountable for the information in your communications and their adherence to all applicable laws. You acknowledge and agree that Chatmatic only acts as a service provider to enable the sending of your messages, and that you have complete control over the message's content and intended recipient. You also agree that you are responsible for ensuring that your messages adhere to all applicable laws.

The transmission of messages to consumers via text message, phone, or email that violate the consent rules is not Chatmatic's responsibility.

You consent to hold Chatmatic, its owners, members, directors, officers, agents, employees, contractors, consultants, and vendors harmless from and against any and all claims, suits, fines, costs, expenses, judgments, and fees, including reasonable attorney's fees, court costs, and expenses, resulting from a claim alleging any violation of the law by you or alleging facts that would constitute a breach of your warranties or obligations under the terms of the Agreement. Any such third-party claim, demand, litigation, investigation, or procedure made against Chatmatic shall be promptly indemnified, defended, or settled. You will be given control and authority over the defense and settlement of the claim, subject to Chatmatic's approval of any settlement, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld. Chatmatic will: I promptly notify you of such claim; (ii) offer you reasonable information, assistance, and cooperation in defending the lawsuit or proceeding; and (iii) provide you with control and authority over the defense and settlement of such claim.

SECTION 21 - COMMUNICATION WITH CHATMATIC AND ITS CLIENTS

Additionally, you confirm that any phone numbers or email addresses you give Chatmatic and its clients are yours to use and that you are the subscriber. You acknowledge that by voluntarily giving Chatmatic and its clients access to your phone numbers and/or email addresses, you expressly consent to being contacted at such numbers and/or addresses.

You agree to receive emails, texts, voicemails that have already been recorded, and/or autodialed calls from Chatmatic and its clients about this agreement, any transactions you have with them, issues involving your account, and promotions they are running. Even if your phone number is listed on any state, provincial, territorial, or federal do-not-call list, Chatmatic and its clients may still contact you.
