BIGEyes Marketing Terms of Service
Welcome to BIGEyes Marketing and related group text messaging services! Before you use this site, please read these Terms of Service carefully as they govern your use of the services provided at BIGEyes Marketing (the "Services"). By using the Services you agree to the Terms of Service set forth below as they may be updated from time to time by BIGEyes Marketing, Inc. ("BIGEyes Marketing"). BIGEyes Marketing may modify or terminate the Services from time to time, for any reason, and without notice, without liability to you, any other user or any third party, provided that when BIGEyes Marketing does so, it will update these Terms of Service. You are advised to periodically check the website for changes in the Terms of Service.
1. Purpose and Description of Services.
BIGEyes Marketing provides users with a means of publishing information that can be retrieved from mobile phones and the Internet. If you create a textmark you will be able to select a unique keyword for it. The use of such keyword in the BIGEyes Marketing service does not grant you ownership of such keyword. BIGEyes Marketing retains ownership of all keywords in its service and might change the keyword associated with your textmark at any time. In such an event, BIGEyes Marketing would provide you with an alternative keyword. BIGEyes Marketing with no or minimal usage might expire. BIGEyes Marketing may determine, in its sole discretion, to limit the use of the Services, add data storage limitations, charge or change fees for the Services or otherwise modify the Services in the future. You acknowledge and agree that these changes may take place and that BIGEyes Marketing shall have no liability stemming from such changes.
Any additions or modifications to the Services shall be in the sole discretion of BIGEyes Marketing and will be subject to these Terms of Service. You are solely responsible for any fees, charges and expenses incurred by you in accessing and using the Services - including, but not limited to, standard text messaging charges that will depend on the plan that you have with your wireless carrier and may appear on your wireless bill or deducted from prepaid balance. BIGEyes Marketing uses reasonable efforts to ensure that the Services are available on a 24/7 basis. However, there will be occasions when the Service will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and emergency repairs or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond the control of BIGEyes Marketing.
