This email marketing agreement template is designed to be comprehensive, flexible and easy to use. If you provide email marketing services, you should ensure that you use properly prepared legal documents to protect against legal and other risks. Most importantly, you should try to ensure that your email marketing systems are not abused and compromised. For this reason, this agreement incorporates a detailed anti-spam policy.
Email marketing services cover a spectrum: from a fully managed service where the service provider does all the work at one end of the spectrum, to the provision of a web-based email marketing platform used independently by the customer at the other. This email marketing agreement is flexible enough to be adapted for either type of service, or indeed for a service falling between these extremes (e.g. where consultancy service are provided to supplement platform access).

. That template is in substance very similar to this one, with one significant addition: it includes special provisions for online sign-ups. However the main difference is one of style. The T&Cs will usually be incorporated by reference into the contract, and another document (eg a statement of work) will actually be signed. By contrast, this agreement is in traditional agreement form, with the parties names at the start, the signature block at the end and the variables in schedules to the main agreement.
