Last updated: 28 Sep 2023 1. Introduction and Acceptance of Terms
The Ortto Service
Ortto Inc. (“Ortto”, “we” or “us”) is providing a software as a service offering (“Service”) comprising:
(a) a platform with a collection of applications and tools to allow you to automate your sales and marketing processes; and
(b) other supporting products and services.
The following terms and conditions (“Terms”) are between you and Ortto and constitute a binding legal agreement (“Agreement”) that governs your use of the Service. By using the Service, you are agreeing to accept and comply with the Terms, which Ortto may update from time to time, except any changes will not be retroactive. You understand and agree that your continued use of the Service after the Terms have changed constitutes your acceptance of the Terms as revised.
To use and/or register for the Service, you agree that you must be of legal age to form a binding contract with Ortto.
If you use the Service on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant to Ortto that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms, and your acceptance of these Terms will be treated as acceptance by that entity. In that event, “you” and “your” in these Terms will refer to that entity.
2. The Service
Access to the Service
Ortto will provide you access to the Service in accordance with the order form or in-app agreement entered into between you and Ortto.
Limitations on Use
Ortto may impose certain limitations on the use of the Service, including, without limitation, allocating certain levels of bandwidth and storage capacity (including number of contacts that may be stored) to your Ortto Service and restricting the number of emails you may send using the Service. Certain limits can be increased by upgrading your contacts tier.
Your Ortto Account
You agree to provide accurate and complete information when you register with, and as you use, the Service (“Service Registration Data”), and you agree to update your Service Registration Data to keep it accurate and complete.
You should not share your account and/or password details with another individual. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your account and for all activities that occur on or through your account, and you agree to immediately notify Ortto of any security breach of your account.
Ortto may provide you with the opportunity to submit comments, information, feedback and ideas regarding our company, products or services, and any such comments that you communicate to us (“Feedback”) will be deemed, at the time of communication to Ortto, the property of Ortto, and Ortto shall be entitled to full rights of ownership, including without limitation, unrestricted right to use or disclose such Feedback in any form, medium or technology now known or later developed, and for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to you.
As part of the Service, you may from time to time receive updates to the software from Ortto which may be automatically downloaded and installed to your device or hosted by Ortto. These updates may include bug fixes, feature enhancements or improvements, or entirely new versions of the software. You agree that Ortto may automatically deliver such updates to you or include such updates as part of the Service and you shall receive and install or, as the case may be, utilize, them as required.
You acknowledge and agree that Ortto shall not be responsible or liable in any way for any damages you incur or allege to have incurred, either directly or indirectly, as a result of the software updates described above.
3. Term, Automatic Renewals and Termination
The term of each subscription shall be as specified in the applicable order form or “in-app agreement”.
Except as otherwise specified in an order form or in-app agreement, and unless terminated, subscriptions will automatically renew for additional renewal terms equal to the initial subscription term.
Except as expressly provided in the applicable order form or in-app agreement, renewal of promotional or one-time priced subscriptions will be at Ortto’s applicable list price in effect at the time of the applicable renewal.
Enterprise or Managed Accounts
Either party notifies the other party of termination, in writing, at least 30 days before the end of the corresponding Initial Term or any Renewal Period, in which case the Order Form will terminate upon the expiry of the applicable Initial Term or Renewal Period.
Non-managed accounts can cancel anytime in-app via the Plan & Billing Page. Any cancellations will be required to complete the remainder of their term, as represented in-app
Material Breach Termination
Either party may terminate a subscription by written notice to the other party if the other party commits a material breach of this Agreement and such breach shall continue unremedied for a period of 30 days after the other party receives written notice of such breach.
Effects of Termination
Upon termination of your subscription, you will lose all access to the Service and any portions thereof, including, but not limited to, your Ortto account and any content, contacts, data or documents generated, published or stored by the Service.
The termination of this Agreement or a subscription for any reason shall not affect a party’s rights or obligations that expressly or by their nature continue and survive (including, without limitation, the payment terms and the provisions concerning ownership, confidentiality, limitation of liability, indemnity and the warranty disclaimers).
You agree to pay the fees applicable to your access to the Service. Ortto may suspend or terminate your account and/or access to the Service if your payment is late and/or your designated payment method cannot be processed. By providing your designated payment method, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize Ortto (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your subscription (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is otherwise not acceptable, your access to the Service may be suspended or terminated.
Unless otherwise stated in your order form or in-app agreement, all amounts are due and payable on receipt of the invoice.
Except as otherwise expressly stated herein or in an order form or in-app agreement, payment obligations are non-cancellable and fees paid are non-refundable. Ortto will not issue refunds or credits for partial months of Service, plan downgrades, or refunds for unused time if you cease use of the Service before the end of your subscription term.
All quoted fees are exclusive of taxes, which Ortto will charge or invoice as applicable, and you agree to pay any such taxes applicable to your access to the Service as determined based on the laws and regulations of the taxing authority(ies) governing your location.
Upgrades and Downgrades
If you upgrade your contacts tier (either by choosing to subscribe to a higher tier or by exceeding the limits of your previous tier) or if you choose to add optional components to your subscription during your subscription term, any additional cost will be prorated over the remaining days in your then-current subscription term and charged to your applicable payment method. You will be charged the full adjusted rate upon any renewal of your subscription term.
If auto-upgrade is enabled on your account, and you exceed your plan contact limit for 7 consecutive days, your account will be automatically upgraded to the next tier and any additional cost will be billed to your account as applicable.
You agree that your account owner, billing contact, and administrative users are authorized to upgrade your contacts tier and add optional components to your subscription on your behalf.
You acknowledge that, if you wish to downgrade your contacts tier for your next renewal term, merely removing your contacts within the Service is not sufficient. Instead, you will need to give Ortto written notice of your downgrade request at least 30 days before the end of your then-current subscription term* and the downgrade will then be effective for your next renewal term.
Ortto may make the Service available to you on a trial basis, free of charge. Ortto may terminate any such free trial period in its sole discretion.
DURING THE FREE TRIAL, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS-IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY AND ORTTO SHALL HAVE NO INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS NOR LIABILITY OF ANY TYPE WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE FOR THE FREE TRIAL PERIOD UNLESS SUCH EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY IS NOT ENFORCEABLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW IN WHICH CASE ORTTO’S LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE PROVIDED DURING THE FREE TRIAL SHALL NOT EXCEED $100.
Where your use of the Service includes the processing of personal data (as described in the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC—”GDPR”) within the European Economic Area (EEA), the terms of the data protection addendum (“DPA”) available at https://www.ortto.com/gdpr shall apply to such processing, and shall be incorporated into these Terms, provided and from the date that you send to “privacy AT ortto.com” a copy of the DPA signed by you in accordance with the instructions therein. In such event, if any provision of the DPA is in conflict with these Terms, the provision in the DPA shall be controlling with respect to that particular subject matter.
You agree that Ortto may identify your company name and/or logo as an Ortto customer on client lists, marketing materials and/or press releases. If you wish to be excluded from this program, do so by emailing: “firstname.lastname@example.org”.

You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, there shall be no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement. Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the other party’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld); provided, however, either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (including all order forms and in-app agreements), without the other party’s consent to its affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Any attempted assignment in derogation of this section will be null and void.
