ipipi.com (ipipi, the Service) is provided by Upside
Wireless Inc. located at #503-535 Thurlow Street, Vancouver,
BC, V6E 3L2, Canada
When you sign up with our Service, you automatically
confirm that you accept all terms in this agreement.
You can sign up with ipipi irrespective of where you
live in the world and your age. Please observe however,
that underage persons sometimes need consent from parents.
You always act as a private person and only represent
ipipi supplies you with a set of services that allow
you to send and receive text messages to and from almost
in the world. This is NOT A FREE SERVICE.
All SMS messages (one SMS = one credit) require one
credit in order to be processed. When you create a new
account we will credit it with a few free SMS credits
so that you can evaluate our service. Please
note that these free evaluation credits are available
to most, but NOT all global networks.
As part of your account you also agree to receive 1-2
newsletters from our company each month. PAID users
can opt-out from this program on the Personal Info screen
of their accounts.
When you register, we may ask you to state your address,
country of residence, language of choice and some additional
data about you and or you personal interests. If you
chose to register your name as part of your email address
or elsewhere, you consequently agree to that your name
and other information you have provided will be stored
and processed in the ipipi database.
The international SMS network is built on the "best
effort" principle. This means that delivery of
messages cannot be guaranteed. Over 5
years in business we have over 99% successful delivery
rate where over 90% of messages are delivered within
few minutes (often seconds). We cannot, however,
guarantee delivery of messages and we do not refund
credits for unsuccessful messages.
Due to significant variations in phone capabilities,
service provider capabilities and restrictions on the
delivery and access some service providers impose we
are unable to guarantee delivery or ability for
your recipients to access picture messages. No refunds
will be issued under any circumstances.
Before you send picture messages please note that:
- The recipient’s phone must be capable and
setup to accept picture messages, the phone must be
able to receive and correctly interpret WAP pages.
- The recipient of the message must have setup the
handset with his/her service provider prior to your
sending the message.
QUALITY OF DATA
The information that you state to us when you register
must be updated, correct and complete. Please note that
accounts with invalid information (for example e-mail
account, name or country) may be deleted as our sole
discretion, together with all associated information.
It is your responsibility to make sure that your information
Subscription accounts enable account holders to send
and receive SMS messages at preferential terms. The
payment for a subscription is executed monthly on the
day the subscriber first joined the program. Subscriptions
can be cancelled under the following terms:
- Subscription privileges stop at the time of cancellation
- No refunds for subscriptions will be issued under
The ability to send and receive SMS messages is subject
to subscriber contracts, roaming agreements and billing
configuration. Due to the nature of the global SMS network
the roaming and interoperability status, as well as
our ability to deliver your messages to or from any
network may change without notice.
When you have received your email address and your password,
you can send a few test SMS messages to a limited number
of networks (this limitation is removed for PREPAID
users). You may use up to 1 MB of memory for your account.
It is your responsibility to manage and periodically
empty your mailbox. If your account exceeds 1
MB our automated cleanup service will delete part of
your messages starting with the oldest ones. Also, automated
cleanup process deletes all messages of evaluation accounts
older than 14 days. Your account may also be
prevented from receiving new messages while its size
exceeds the limit. Should you want to exceed this
limit and stop receiving promotional messages you can
open a pre-paid account. If you are interested
in this option please review
available information on SMS account types. If
you choose to recommend your friends to ipipi, you will
receive some credits when they sign up and some additional
bonus credits when they become prepaid. If you refer
friends from an evaluation account, these new credits
will be additional test credits; you will be unable
to send custom personalized messages until you become
a paid user.
