These Fair Use Policies govern all RPost messaging and document services currently commercially available. If there is another reference that conflicts with a definition in these Fair Use Policies, the definition or description within this Fair Use Policies prevails, unless a customer specially contracts for a different service level in a separate contract. RPost reserves the right to further restrict or ban service use for a specific user or customer at its sole discretion and/or terminate a service plan, for example, if it deems the specific user or customer is abusing service use.
- R1: RPost infrastructure for standard volumes and human sending.
- R2: RPost infrastructure for automatic and high volume sending.
- RMail Gateway. Local application or cloud managed service for filtering email content outbound prior to RMail Platform processing, inbound, or archive.

- Unit: Each service plan has a use limit that resets monthly or annually/as-used. These are described further in plan parameter documents. Use is measured in “messages”, “message units” also known as “units”; each is defined as per recipient per 5MB transmission. For example, an email sent with two recipients that has 7.5 MB cumulative attachment size is calculated as a total of 4 “Units”. Exceptions: (a) with the RMail Default Plan (the automatic plan new users are added to until/unless they upgrade to a paid service plan), one “Message” is one email sent to up to 10 recipients with maximum cumulative attachment size of 25MB; (b) with the RMail Large File Sending, one “Message” or “Unit” is per recipient with large message size permitted per plan limits; (c) with RSign, one transmission sent to any permitted number of recipients for electronic signature is one “Unit” or “Envelope”.
II. Fair Use Policies.
Overview: Fair use policies apply to all plans, and include limits per plan, limits per send, non-use for unsolicited marketing purposes, and non-use for unlawful transmissions. RPost reserves the right to terminate service or to temporarily freeze the user’s account and/or contact the user or their administrator to verify if traffic is authentic and determine if the particular user’s plan parameters should be adjusted. RPost reserves the right to change this Fair Use Policy at any time. Changes shall become effective after thirty (30) days from publication of the revised version on rpost.com. Continued use of a subscription after expiry of the 30-day period shall constitute acceptance to be bound by the terms and conditions of the revised fair usage policy.

Feature-Based Fair Use Policies: Service plans include a feature and feature parameter list. Fair use of services and a service plan means only using the features and feature parameters associated with the purchased plan, whether enforced through technical means or not. RPost reserves the right to technically enforce or enforce through business policies, compliance with fair use of features and feature parameters associate with a particular service plan. For example, the RSign Bulk Send feature, RSign Templates with API automated sending, and RSign web forms embedded in web pages with static links must use Shared Volume Plans.
Shared Volume Plans: These service plans permit up to a certain number of unique senders and a certain number of unique Units per month or per year or as used. Certain features and automated sending systems, shared team sending addresses, API sending, and forms embedded in web pages with static links must use Shared Volume Plans. Fair use is complying with the plans and features assigned to the plans, as well as plan limits, whether or not technically enforced.
Qualified Plans: Certain service plans are considered “Qualified” plans (QP). The number of Qualified Plans a customer has permits further opportunities, such as triggering volume discounts and the potential to purchase certain Premium Plans. Certain “per user” Individual plans are designated Qualified Plans (i.e. Standard, Business, Enterprise, Expert).
Premium Plans: Certain service plans are considered “Premium” plans (PP). Premium Plans require a minimum number of Qualified Plans to be purchased to permit purchase of a Premium Plan. Certain “per user” Individual plans are Premium Plans (i.e. Business, Enterprise, Expert).
RMail Gateway Plans: RMail Gateway Base service plans apply to the sole use of the RMail Gateway plus access at the RMail Default service level. RMail Gateway service plans with a Standard, Business, Enterprise or Expert indicator include a buffer for overage up to double the plan’s fair use limit based on the RMail Standard, Business, Enterprise or Expert levels, with the buffer available for up to the first three months of service, to provide the customer time to evaluate which service plan each user should be enabled for based on use patterns. RMail Gateway service plans are only for customers that automate sending based on content policies using RMail Gateway, and are not permitted for use for customers that are not accessing RMail service through the RMail Gateway, although a customer may use RMail Gateway with another RMail app and in such case, all use will be attributed to the app plan that they are authorized for.
Default Plans: All users that are enabled for service without a service plan are automatically placed on Default plan. Default plan parameters are described above. Default plan use is not permitted within customer organizations. Only three default plan users are permitted within any one company.
Default Support: Service plans include a base default support plan that provides 24×7 Service Monitoring, Online Self-Service Support & Knowledge Base, Training Videos & User Guides, Live Chat, Live Training Webinars, Online Support Ticketing, Case Submission Mean Time to Respond as noted in support definitions and service level agreements.
