		     ZSENTRY (ZMAIL) TERMS OF SERVICE -- BASIC

This agreement (the "AGREEMENT") is a legally binding agreement between You, an individual 
or a single entity ("the CLIENT"), and NMA,Inc. ("NMA") that sets forth the terms and 
conditions of Your BASIC Account for Your use of NMA ZSENTRY Service (the "SERVICE"). NMA 
licenses the SERVICE to You upon the express condition that You accept all of the terms 
and conditions in this AGREEMENT. NMA may at any time and without notice to You, change the 
terms of this AGREEMENT. A current copy of the terms and conditions may be found on our web 
site at zsentry.com (the "SITE").

You are asked to read and be familiar with this AGREEMENT and references before you use the 
SERVICE; in case of any  questions, check the SERVICE guides online at the Support Center, the 
screen-by-screen icons, or request a Support Ticket.  Regulatory compliance terms, including the
ZSentry Compliance Statement, and HIPAA Business Associate Agreement if applicable, are 
incorporated herein by reference according to copies available in the SITE.  If You use the 
Service, and as confirmed by Your use of the SERVICE after the first time, You unconditionally
agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this AGREEMENT. 

1.  IDENTITY REPRESENTATION. You (the "ACCOUNT USER") represent, under penalty of perjury, 
that all the information provided by You when You register to use the SERVICE is correct, 
accurate and legally yours to use as Your personal identifiers for the SERVICE. You may 
declare a pseudonymous identity for Your NAME and EMAIL ADDRESS, only, provided that You 
conform to all provisions of this AGREEMENT. You shall not create a false identity for the 
purpose of misleading others as to Your identity or anything related to a message, including 
but not limited to source and contents. Minors cannot use the SERVICE  unless they have 
parental consent to open and maintain an Account. We reserve the right to verify Account 
eligibility and identity representations at any time.

1a. NAME PROTECTION POLICY. If elements of Your NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS or ACCOUNT NAME / 
ORGANIZATION match elements of certain NAMES, ORGANIZATIONS or EMAIL ADDRESSES, that are 
registered with us or have been subject of abuse, the SERVICE may require your justification 
to use those identifiers, for our review. This policy is necessary to help protect our users, 
including You, from abuse, spam, spoofing and phishing.

2.  BASIC ACCOUNT. You  shall use the SERVICE at no charge through a 
BASIC account (also called Plan "R") . You shall be able to read, reply, send and store 
messages, as restricted in the subsections.

2.a. If your EMAIL ADDRESS uses your employer's or organization's domain name, Your use of
the BASIC account is not considered personal use. You can use the BASIC ACCOUNT up to 60 
days, for test purposes only.

2.b. There is no daily limit to read and store messages that are sent to You using the SERVICE. 

2.c. There is no daily limit to reply to a PREMIUM user that sent You a message using 
the SERVICE.

2.d. Up to the limit of 5 (five) messages a day, non-cumulative, and for Your personal 
use only, you can initiate sending messages using the SERVICE.

7c. BASIC EXCESSIVE-USE CHARGE. The BASIC SERVICE provides a free community service and open 
access resource that are available to all. The BASIC SERVICE is paid in part by PREMIUM users, 
allowing their recipients the right to read and reply securely without cost, and thereby 
preserves the Internet free-cost model of email. Therefore, in order to assure fair use by 
all and quality of service for paid users, if you use the BASIC SERVICE to send or try to send 
messages in excess of the limits defined in article 2 (BASIC READER ACCOUNT), and continue to 
do so even after receiving a warning from the SERVICE, Your account shall be suspended and 
cannot be reset or used until charged at the PREMIUM SERVICE rate level for at least one month 
of service. Tolerance in not requesting the payment for excessive use of the BASIC SERVICE does 
not mean agreement to such behavior, or that charges shall not be applied later.

2.e. The number of users logged in for BASIC accounts may be restricted at any time and / or 
BASIC service may be delayed.

2.a. COMMERCIAL USE AND RESALE RIGHTS. Any commercial use of the BASIC account, including
