(i) SMS marketing;
(ii) transactional emails (you must sign a separate contract with FreshMail to be able to use them);
(iii) Landing Pages.
- Under the Contract concluded, you are entitled to a license for the FreshMail App in the fields of exploitation specified in Articles 74 and 75 of the Copyright Act; however, you shall not:
(i) permanently or temporarily duplicate the FreshMail App in whole or part with any means or in any form;
(ii) translate, adapt, modify the layout or otherwise change the FreshMail App;
(iii) make backup copies of the FreshMail App;
(iv) duplicate the source code or translate its form as construed under Article 74(4)(1 and 2) of the Copyright Act.

Everyone’s been through this – Signing up
You have already signed up for FreshMail by creating your Trial Account. Just in case, FreshMail will run you through this process again.
- To use the FreshMail App, create an email account or use an email account you already have.
- If you already have an email account and your terminal meets the foregoing criteria, the next step is to sign up for FreshMail. Without signing up, you cannot access any functionalities of the FreshMail App. The Sign-up Form is available at freshmail.com . You will need to fill it with your real personal data:
(i) your first name;
(ii) your email address;
(iii) your phone number.
You will also need to set up and confirm a password for your Account. Your password should be very secure and include at least 8 characters: different letters and digits or special characters. We also recommend that you enable the two-factor authentication option (2FA), which provides your account with additional protection. You can find out how to activate this function here. The FreshMail App will verify your password and tell you if it meets the criteria.
- Note that the FreshMail App is operated on the Internet. That is why all information and documents related to the FreshMail Portal and the use of the FreshMail App will be sent to you over the Internet only. If you wish to stay up to date with all the innovations in email marketing, such as new functionalities added to the FreshMail App or the latest marketing trends, do not forget to give your consent to the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes by FreshMail, which includes direct marketing, especially for the transmission of FreshMail’s commercial information to you.
- Remember that the email address you have signed up with is your login to the FreshMail App and you need it to sign in for the first time. You can always request a change of your login by contacting the FreshMail Customer Support.
What can I upload to the FreshMail App?
- By now, you should have a very good understanding of Article 10 of the E-Services Act and Articles 4(7) and 6(1) of GDPR. To manage your email and SMS marketing, you can upload email addresses and phone numbers owned by Subscribers who have been verified as having granted you their consent to receive commercial information by electronic channels of communication. To use other functionalities of the FreshMail App (e.g. transactional emails, webinars), you need to secure a correct legal basis for the processing of Personal Data. To do this, you must become a Personal Data Controller as construed under GDPR (or act as a Personal Data Processor for and on behalf of the Personal Data Controller). This, in turn, requires you to conclude a personal data processing outsourcing agreement with FreshMail. You can find more details about what you can upload to the FreshMail App in the Anti-Spam Policy.
- If you do not know Article 10 of the E-Services Act, read it here.
- If you do not know Article 4(7) or 6(1) of GDPR, you can read both here.
- Note that you are solely and fully liable for the data and Content you upload to the FreshMail App. You shall indemnify and hold FreshMail harmless from any liability for the data you have uploaded to the FreshMail App. FreshMail has set up a default limit of 100 (one hundred) Subscriber Lists. If you need more lists, contact the FreshMail Customer Support.
- If you have previously taken advantage of a Trial Period, just after you enter into the Contract with FreshMail for the paid use of the FreshMail App, all your data, your Subscriber Lists and Contents will be saved in the paid account.
How do I send my first Campaign?
- The FreshMail App has been designed for easy and intuitive use by everyone eligible. FreshMail enables you to design your Campaign from scratch or by applying predefined solutions. If you need any help, read FreshMail’s ‘How to plan an email campaign’. You can find it here. Remember that it is you who creates your Campaigns and their content. FreshMail only provides you with the right tools to so.
- Remember that Campaigns sent through a paid Account are released only when the Account has no outstanding payments. FreshMail automatically posts all fees credited and made by you online. You need to be patient, however, as the payment processing can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days.
- You can find the results of each sent Campaign in the Report, which is updated on an ongoing basis. The Report registers the activities of Subscribers for the duration of your paid use of the FreshMail App. The Subscriber activity after this period will not be included in the Report.
- The photographs featured in the templates from the FreshMail template library are indicative only, and you should not use them in any actual Campaigns.
By using the FreshMail Portal and App, you warrant and represent the following:
- You will be fully and solely liable for every Campaign you send, every Landing Page published and every Webinar organised using your Account, and for all their Content. All the Campaigns, Landing Pages and Webinars you create are your sole liability and responsibility, and you are also liable for all the users whom you gave additional access credentials to your Account.

- You will keep confidential all information obtained in relation to the Contract, especially the provisions of the Contract unless made public by FreshMail.
- You will notify FreshMail in seven (7) days of each change of your contact email address. Your contact email address is the email address you have used to sign up. You can change it in your Account Settings → Contact. Note that your contact email address is NOT your login. To change your login, contact the FreshMail Customer Support here.
- You agree that you use the FreshMail Portal and App voluntarily.
- All the data you have provided to sign up for FreshMail is true.

FreshMail may ask for your consent to publish information about FreshMail’s business with you, including by publishing your logo on FreshMail’s website. Remember: if we ask for this permission, a “No” is also a good answer.
Outsourcing of personal data processing
- When you create an Account in the FreshMail App, a document titled “Personal Data Processing Outsourcing Agreement” is generated for you to sign, which is obligatory.
- Note that you are a Personal Data Controller (or, as applicable, you act as a Personal Data Processor on behalf of a Personal Data Controller) and you are required to conclude an agreement with FreshMail to specify the extent and purposes of outsourcing of personal data processing by FreshMail. You can do this in one of four ways:
- Click the “Accept the Agreement” button below the Personal Data Processing Outsourcing Agreement generated in the FreshMail App, which is equivalent to signing the Agreement electronically.
- Download, print, sign by hand, scan and upload the Personal Data Processing Outsourcing Agreement back to the FreshMail App.
- Download, print, sign by hand, and send the Personal Data Processing Outsourcing Agreement by mail to the corporate headquarters of FreshMail.
- Conclude a separate non-exclusive license agreement on paper and with the Personal Data Processing Outsourcing Agreement as its attachment.
- Unless you sign the Personal Data Processing Outsourcing Agreement with FreshMail, FreshMail may prevent you from:
(i) uploading any database to your Account (also when uploading via any Landing Page or other services provided by third parties);
(ii) sending Campaigns and transactional emails,
(iii) organising Webinars
(iii) publishing any Landing Pages you may create.
- FreshMail is outsourced for and manages the processing of Personal Data on your behalf against your payment for the FreshMail App which you use.
- You can download Personal Data from the FreshMail App (if any Personal Data has been uploaded and potentially modified to and in the FreshMail App) into a CSV (comma-separated values) file. The CSV file will include the Personal Data of your Subscribers uploaded to the FreshMail App and the contents of the additional fields stored in the FreshMail App. This way FreshMail discharges its obligation imposed by Article 20(1) of GDPR.
- Campaigns and Landing Pages sent or shared from all types of FreshMail Accounts are subject to moderation, irrespective of the Payment plan in effect.
- Moderation by FreshMail does not release you from your liability for the content and management of your Campaigns and Landing Pages.
- Aside from Moderation, FreshMail has the right to remove certain Content which you may have uploaded to the FreshMail App; this applies especially to the content published on Landing Pages and reported beyond any doubt by any third party or officials to be in violation of anyone’s rights and/or the prevailing regulations of law.
Account and sending block
- FreshMail may temporarily block your Account if:
you have failed to pay for the use of the FreshMail App for at least 30 (thirty) days from the due payment date.
- If FreshMail identifies a Campaign, a Landing Page or a Webinar which has been sent, published or organised against FreshMail’s Anti-Spam Policy or the prevailing regulations of law, or if Spamtraps are found by FreshMail on any Subscriber List you have (including abuse@domain email addresses and/or postmaster@domain email addresses), FreshMail may permanently block you from sending any Campaigns to these Subscriber Lists.
