Use of the ipTexter service implies your agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions below:

Operation of Service

The ipTexter service was designed and developed by, and is operated by comcetera ltd, a limited liability company registered in England - Company No 06058188. Please address any correspondance to the registered office at: 13 Freeland Park, Poole, BH16 6FH England.

Privacy and storage of data

In order to provide the ipTexter messaging service we need to store various details on our servers, including messages received on phone numbers associated with the service, and messages sent and received through the service. This information is stored on our servers, and may need to be accessed by comcetera ltd for the purposes of maintaining the ipTexter service. This information will never be used for any purpose other than for providing the ipTexter messaging service, as advertised on www.ipTexter.com, nor passed to any third party under any circumstances unless required for legal or law enforcement purposes.

The ipTexter service is dependent on third party services, networks and gateways in order to send and receive your messages. Other than for the purposes of processing your messages, and relaying your messages to their destination, your messages will not be intercepted, made available to any third party, or used for any purpose other than advertised on the ipTexter.com website. We may keep records of website access, and messages sent and received for server maintenance and legal purposes.

Anti-Spam Policy

You agree not to use the ipTexter service or any of its servers or messaging entities for the sending of unsolicited communications, whether in the form of text messages, electronic mail (email), phone calls, faxes, letters, or any other communication methods which are provided by ipTexter, intentionally, or otherwise.

Ownership of numbers and addresses During normal operation of service, you may be allocated numbers or addresses for use with the ipTexter service. These numbers are allocated only for use with your ipTexter account, and do not become your personal property. Numbers and addresses can not be "ported" from ipTexter to another service provider.

Responsibility of Use

You agree not to use the ipTexter service for any illegal, immoral, or improper purpose. If any users are found to be, or suspected to be using the service for any illegal, immoral, or improper use, for the sending of unsolicited communications, or in a way which could impede or impact the use of the service by legitimate users, the related accounts will be terminated without warning or refund. Any details required by, or which should morally be provided to law enforcement agencies as a result of such actions will be disseminated as deemed appropriate by comcetera ltd.

Copyright Regulations

It is your responsibility to ensure that any data or information you access and/or transmit through ipTexter can legally be accessed and/or transmitted in that way, for that purpose, and that you are not infringing any copyright, performing rights, or any other rights relating to protected content. By using the service, you accept full responsibility for all information and data you transfer through the service, and agree to protect comcetera ltd from any legal repercussions of your use of misuse of the service.

Availability of service

The ipTexter service is provided as-is, without any warranties, express or implied, of its merchantability, or suitability or fitness for any purpose.

Although every reasonable effort will be made to ensure continuous and uninterrupted service, we do not guarantee that the ipTexter service will be available for use at any specific time.

The performance of ipTexter is also dependant on external third party partners, networks, and carriers over whom we have little or no control. As such, we do not guarantee the timeliness or reliability of the delivery of any message or communications through ipTexter. Although we will make a best effort to ensure the selection of effective messaging routes, and regularly monitor and test these routes, we will not be liable in the rare circumstances that delivery of a message or communication fails due to problems with, or lack of connectivity to a third party network, delivery route, or service provider.

Use or attempted use of the service implies agreement that comcetera will not be held responsible for any loss or damages arising from your use, misuse, or inability to use the services advertised, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such loss. We reserve the right to terminate or modify the service offered at any time, without notice, with refunds offered for incomplete subscriptions at the sole discretion of comcetera ltd.

Access to network services

The ipTexter service is intended for peer-to-peer communication using standard "long" phone numbers, and does not provide access to network-specific services, shortcodes, or premium SMS (aka reverse billed) SMS services.


These terms shall be governed by United Kingdom law. Where an error, grey area, or potential loophole exists in the wording or layout of these terms, they shall remain legally binding for the meaning which it can be seen, by common sense of a judge under the United Kingdom legal system, that they were intended.
