MK reserves the right to suspend or terminate Customer’s access to the Service with or without notice if MK reasonably determines that:

If you purchase your license to use the Service from MK, you hereby expressly agree that MK is permitted to bill you for the applicable fees, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Service, or charge such fees to your credit card or other payment method designated on your initial registration with the MK at regular intervals for the remainder of the term of these Terms.

Ownership & Privacy
As between You and MK, you retain all right, title and interest in any and all data, files, attachments, text, images, personally identifiable information, and other content that You and Your Users upload or submit to the Service (collectively, “Your Content“). You may not upload, post or otherwise make available through the Service any material protected by copyright, trademark, or any other proprietary right without the express permission of the owner of such copyright, trademark or other proprietary right owned by a third party, and the burden of determining whether any material is protected by any such right is on you.

Confidentiality & Data security
While Yet Another Mail Merge requests permission to access the full contents of users’ Gmail inbox, this is because the Apps Script development framework offers us no workable alternative of more limited scope. These access rights are required to allow actions performed by the end user, and in no case are the textual contents of users’ emails transmitted to any 3rd party services outside of the user’s direct control or knowledge.
All personally identifiable data that users may keep in files associated with this tool remains in the complete control of those users from a privacy perspective. Unless specifically stated, we store no personally identifiable information in any 3rd party database or file repository.
As of December 2017, we are storing in our database the email addresses of some of your recipients. Specifically, if one of those addresses bounced or if one of your recipients manually unsubscribed (if you added an unsubscribe link in your emails), we will record said address to warn you if we find it again among the recipients of a future campaign. You can manage both lists (unsubscriptions & bounces) in Yet Another Mail Merge web app.
THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. MK MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT (I) THE SERVICE IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; (II) THE SERVICE WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INTERRUPTIONS THAT OCCUR IN THE CONTEXT OF REGULARLY SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE); (III) ANY INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE WILL BE ACCURATE OR COMPLETE; OR (IV) THE RESULTS OF USING THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF AN IMPLIED WARRANTY, SO THIS DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL MK BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR OTHER LOSS OR DAMAGE WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER FAILURE, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION), ARISING OUT OF OR CAUSED BY YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE, EVEN IF MK HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH MK RELATED TO ANY OF THE SERVICE SHALL BE TERMINATION OF SUCH SERVICE. IN NO EVENT SHALL MK’ ENTIRE LIABILITY TO YOU IN RESPECT OF ANY SERVICE, WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT, EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY YOU TOWARDS SUCH SERVICE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS IN THIS PARAGRAPH MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER.
These Terms, their interpretation, performance or any breach thereof, will be construed in accordance with, and all questions with respect thereto will be determined by, the laws of Austria. Both parties hereby irrevocably submit any disputes under these Terms to the jurisdiction of the courts located in Austria.
