I. General Conditions of Use
Sendinblue, a simplified joint-stock company registered with the Paris Trade and Companies Register under number 498 019 298 with its registered office at 106 boulevard Haussmann 75008 Paris (hereafter “Brevo“) operates a solution relating to marketing and/or transactional email and/or SMS via its website www.brevo.com (“the Site“).
Any special conditions potentially negotiated between Brevo and the User shall prevail over these General Conditions of Use.
The terms used in this document are defined as follows:
The “User” means any natural or legal person authorized to use the Brevo Services.
The “Services” provided by Brevo are the features made available to Users via the Site, in accordance with the applicable Version of the Software, such as sending SMSs and emails, providing reports or optimising the deliverability of messages sent (the complete list of features is available at the following address: https://brevo.com/features/).
The “data processor” is the company that performs data processing at the request of a data controller. Thus, Brevo (ex Sendinblue) acts as a data processor to make its Services available to Users, who define the purpose and the means of the processing. Brevo may also use secondary processors (“sub-processors”) to carry out data processing on its behalf.
The “User’s data” is understood as data processed by Brevo on behalf of the Users within the framework of the performance of the Services subscribed.
“Personal data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
“Software” shall mean the suite of software owned and/or operated by Brevo or its affiliates and/or delivered under the business name Brevo and necessary to provide the Services.
“Version”: shall mean all the releases of the Software developed by Brevo. All releases shall apply to the User as part of Brevo’s standard software and Services. A release may create, modify or discontinue one or several feature(s) of the Service.
The “Parties” shall mean Brevo and the User.
1) Purpose of Brevo (formerly Sendinblue) Services
Brevo provides solutions relating to marketing and/or transactional email and/or SMS , through its sending platform, marketed via the Site.

The Users shall take all useful measures to maintain the confidentiality of access to their account.
In the event of fraudulent use of their account, the Users undertake to immediately notify Brevo and change their access password without delay.

The prices displayed on the Site are exclusive of charges, and they do not include VAT. Additional charges shall be applied on the invoice according to the Users’ country of residence and applicable legal and regulatory provisions. If the User’s organization subjects invoicing and/or payment to the creation or update by Brevo of an account on a specific invoicing platform, and/or if the User’s organization only accepts payment via wire transfer, Brevo reserves the right to charge an annual additional fee of 100 euros.
Once logged in the platform, or by subscribing via our Pay as you go page (https://www.brevo.com/pricing/pay-as-you-go/), the User can also purchase SMS or WhatsApp messages on a pay-as-you-go basis, with a unit price fixed country by country. Unit prices of SMS and WhatsApp messages depend on the market prices, applied by our suppliers and third parties, and may therefore evolve during the performance of the contract. Once notified to us by our suppliers or WhatsApp, the price increase shall immediately be applied to the Users. Users can request the communication of the current price list relevant to the destination countries for which they purchased SMS and/or WhatsApp messages at [email protected]. When using WhatsApp messages, the User might benefit from a fixed monthly volume of free WhatsApp messages, as described as the case may be on our Pay as you go page: this offer is only valid as long as (i) the User owns a verified WhatsApp Business account and (ii) WhatsApp provides those messages for free. The monthly volume of free WhatsApp messages resets at the end of each month.

In this respect, Brevo (ex Sendinblue) declares that it offers sufficient guarantees as to the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures so that the processing meets the requirements of the GDPR and ensures the protection of the data subject’s rights, and undertakes to respect the following obligations:
1. Brevo’s Obligations
a) User’s instructions
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to process personal data only for the purposes of performing the Services in accordance with the User’s instructions. Thus, Brevo (ex Sendinblue) agrees not to concede, rent, transfer or otherwise communicate to another person, all or part of the personal data, even free of charge, and not to use the personal data for purposes other than those provided in the General Conditions of Use.
In the event that Brevo (ex Sendinblue) considers that an instruction given by the User constitutes a violation of an applicable law, Brevo (ex Sendinblue) must immediately inform the User.
b) Confidentiality and security
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) guarantees the confidentiality of personal data processed in connection with the Services. As such, it ensures (i) that personal data is communicated only to persons who need to know it, (ii) that these persons are aware of the User’s instructions and undertake to process the personal data entrusted to them only in strict compliance with the instructions and for no other purpose, (iii) that they are subject to an appropriate contractual or legal obligation of confidentiality, and (iv) that they receive the necessary training in the field of data protection.
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to implement the appropriate technical and organizational measures in order to preserve the confidentiality and security of personal data and, in particular, to prevent it from being distorted, damaged or communicated to unauthorised third parties, and more generally, to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised dissemination or access, as well as against any form of unlawful processing, it being specified that these measures must ensure, taking into account best practice and the costs associated with their implementation, a level of security appropriate to the risks presented by the processing and the nature of the data to be protected and, more generally, in order to guarantee a level of security of personal data appropriate to the risk.
c) Notification of violations of personal data
In the event of an accidental or unlawful breach of security resulting in the destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or unauthorised access to, personal data processed by Brevo (ex Sendinblue), Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to immediately notify the User within 72 hours of the detection of the incident.
In such circumstances, and in consultation with the User, Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to put in place the necessary data protection measures and to limit any negative effects on the data subjects.
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to provide the User with all reasonable information and assistance to enable the latter to comply with its obligations to notify the data protection authorities and, where applicable, the data subjects.
d) User support
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes, as far as possible, to assist the User in fulfilling its own obligations. Thus, Brevo (ex Sendinblue) shall:
- take charge of the requests to unsubscribe from distribution lists on behalf of the User;
- respond promptly to any request from the User concerning the personal data processed, in order to enable the User to take into account, within the time limits set, any potential requests from data subjects (right of access, right of rectification, right of destruction, etc.), and more generally to take into account the nature of the processing and help the User through appropriate technical and organisational measures to comply with their obligation to respond to requests submitted by the data subjects with a view to exercising their rights;
- forward to the User, on receipt, requests from the data subjects to exercise their rights;
- assist and collaborate with the User in order to guarantee compliance with its obligations, in accordance with the applicable regulations on the matter, and in particular help the User to ensure the security of personal data, to comply with its obligations in the event of a security breach and to assist the User in carrying out any measures necessary prior to processing, such as the implementation of an impact analysis.
e) Data access / deletion
At any time during the implementation of the General Conditions of Use, the User may access the personal data processed by Brevo (ex Sendinblue) or delete it directly from the Site using the export and integrated deletion features.
At the end of the contractual relationship, Brevo undertakes, at the User’s request, to destroy all personal data, or to return it to the User or another data processor designated by them if technically feasible and within a maximum period of 3 months. The return must be accompanied by the destruction of existing copies in Brevo’s information systems, unless any applicable law requires their retention.
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to provide the User with all the information and documents necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations set out herein.
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) authorises the User or any other external auditor not competing with Brevo (ex Sendinblue) and mandated by the User to inspect and audit its personal data processing activities, and undertakes to accede to all reasonable requests made by the User to verify that Brevo (ex Sendinblue) complies with the contractual obligations imposed by this Annex.
It is agreed that, subject to any requests from the regulators to this effect, such audits may take place no more than once (1) per contract year. In all cases, the User must give Brevo (ex Sendinblue) a minimum notice of fifteen (15) days, and the audit must in no case disrupt the ongoing activities of Brevo (ex Sendinblue). The audit will be limited to the personal data processing activities performed by Brevo (ex Sendinblue) on behalf of the User, and the User will not be able to access data concerning other Brevo (ex Sendinblue) customers.
Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to communicate all supporting documentation proving the compliance of the processing with the User’s instructions, and that the appropriate security measures have indeed been put in place.
The User is informed, and expressly accepts, that Brevo (ex Sendinblue) may have recourse to sub-processors within the context of the Services, who will have access/process the personal data entrusted by the User on their behalf. The list of the relevant processors is as follows: see the list.
The User is made aware that some of these sub-processors are located in countries outside the European Union, including in the United States, and, as such, the User expressly authorizes Brevo (ex Sendinblue) to transfer personal data outside the European Union. Brevo (ex Sendinblue) undertakes to put in place all the necessary guarantees in order to supervise these transfers in compliance with the applicable rules.
In this context, the User shall expressly mandate Brevo (ex Sendinblue) to sign, in its name and on its behalf, standard contractual clauses ” data controller to data processor ” with the sub-processors (see the standard clauses of the European Commission at the following address: https://commission.europa.eu/system/files/2021-06/1_en_annexe_acte_autonome_cp_part1_v5_0.pdf ).
In the event of modification of the list of its sub-processors, Brevo (ex Sendinblue) will notify the User by email or by notification through the customer account, and the User will have the possibility to cancel the subscription in the event of an objection. It is specified that this notification will include any information relating to possible transfers of personal data outside the European Union.
When Brevo (ex Sendinblue) uses sub-processors to carry out specific processing activities on behalf of and on the instructions of the User, the same data protection obligations as those laid down in these GCU are imposed contractually on the sub-processors, in particular with regard to providing sufficient guarantees as to the implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures.
It is Brevo (ex Sendinblue)’s responsibility to ensure that sub-processors provide sufficient guarantees to ensure that the processing meets the requirements of the GDPR. If the sub-processors do not fulfil their data protection obligations, it is recalled that Brevo (ex Sendinblue) remains fully liable to the User for the performance by sub-processors of their obligations.
4. Transfers of personal data outside the EU for legal purposes
If Brevo is required to make such transfers under the applicable law, it undertakes to immediately inform the User of this legal obligation before the processing, unless the applicable law prohibits such information for reasons of public interest.

Subscription. This section applies to paying Customers who sign up for a paid Services plan online or via a purchase order established by our services.
By subscribing to a paid Services plan, the subscription contract comes into effect from the date of subscription, for an initial period chosen by the Customer.
At the end of the initial period, the subscription is automatically renewed for successive periods equivalent to the initial period.
Unless otherwise specified in a purchase order, the Customer may, at any time, terminate the automatic renewal by cancelling their subscription from their Account.
When the Customer ends the renewal, the subscription continues until the end of the current period and is not renewed. Any remaining credits will be lost.
Payment. When you sign up to a paid Services plan online, you are required to select a plan level and you will be charged according to the terms of the applicable paid plan level. You are responsible for paying the fees associated with the plan level you have selected, as well as any and all applicable sales and use taxes for your purchase of Services based on the address that you provide at signup. Your monthly or annual payment is due on the date you sign up and billing for the following month or years will occur on the same date each month or year.
If you downgrade or upgrade your plan level during a billing cycle, we will issue a credit note for the remaining prepaid amount on a pro-rata basis. The credit note will automatically be applied to your next invoice.
You are required to maintain a valid payment method, such as debit or credit card information, on file with us.

If you do not pay on time or if we cannot charge the payment method you have on file for any reason, we reserve the right to either suspend or terminate your access to the Services. In addition, if any payment is not received within 30 days after the due date, then we may charge a late fee of $10 and we may assess interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month (18% per year), or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from 30 days after the due date until the date paid. If your unpaid fees are referred to an attorney or collections agency, you shall pay all reasonable attorney’s fees or collections agency fees.
Brevo uses PCI DSS-compliant third party payment providers to process payments, including Adyen, PayPal, GoCardless, and Chargebee, and Brevo reserves the right to process payments using any provider. Your payment is subject to the terms and conditions imposed by the third-party payment provider.

Arbitration Agreement. Please read this section carefully. This section affects rights that you may otherwise have. It provides for resolution of most disputes through arbitration instead of court trials and class actions.
YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Any claim or dispute brought by you arising from or relating to these Terms, or to the relationships that result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope, or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, “Covered Disputes”) may, at Brevo (ex Sendinblue)’s option and in its sole discretion, be settled exclusively by binding, individual arbitration, rather than in court, and to be held in King County, Washington, or another location mutually agreeable to the parties. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association under its rules and procedures. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. Prior to initiating any arbitration, you will give Brevo (ex Sendinblue) at least 60 days’ advanced written notice of your intent to file for arbitration. You must provide such notice by email to [email protected] During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity, and any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties. Judgment upon the award rendered by an arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms, and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. You are not entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative, or private attorney action, and the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative, or private attorney general basis. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found illegal or unenforceable, the remaining arbitration terms shall continue to be fully valid, binding, and enforceable (but in no case will there be a class, representative, or private attorney general arbitration). These Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA) and, where otherwise applicable, by the laws of the State of Washington. Brevo reserves all rights to pursue any and all claims and remedies, whether in a court of law or other tribunal, and in no way shall the foregoing be interpreted to limit Brevo (ex Sendinblue)’s rights in this regard.
General. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Brevo (ex Sendinblue) as a result of these Terms or your use of the Services. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. You hereby consent to Brevo (ex Sendinblue) publicizing the existence (but not the terms) of the relationship contemplated hereunder as a part of Brevo (ex Sendinblue)’s promotional and marketing activities from time to time. These Terms, along with the agreements incorporated by reference herein, constitute the entire agreement between Brevo (ex Sendinblue) and you with respect to your access to and use of the Services and your Brevo (ex Sendinblue) account, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between Brevo (ex Sendinblue) and you with respect thereto and, with respect to your use of the Services, supersedes the terms of any other party’s terms and conditions. These Terms may be executed by the parties hereto in separate counterparts, as applicable to the Services, each of which when so executed and delivered shall be an original for all purposes, but all such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument. The failure of Brevo (ex Sendinblue) to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Brevo (ex Sendinblue) will use electronic documents for all communications, agreements, disclosures, authorizations, and other documents necessary to provide you with the Services. You must have a computer or other web-enabled device, a connection to the internet, an active email account, and the ability to receive and read electronic files to conduct business with us electronically.
