Terms take effect when you use any of the Services or Website. You represent to us that you are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g., you are not a minor). If you are agreeing to these Terms for an entity, such as the entity you work for, you represent to us that you have legal authority to bind that entity. For purposes of these Terms, “you” means you and the entity you represent and also refers to any person accessing the Services by any method on your behalf. 2. Description of Writ.email Services 2.1 Writ.email (“we” or “us”) provides two types of Services: 1 “Subscription Services”, which are the series of proprietary computer software programs developed by us as delivered to you that facilitate and automate the process of conducting surveys, polls, intercepts, and reports (“Software”), products and related systems, security, updates and improvements thereto and support services accessed by you using a web browser and the Internet under an Application Service Provider (ASP) model.
