Smart Alto is a 24/7 lead qualification and long term follow up service for real estate agents through SMS. When a prospective buyer, seller, renter, etc. reaches out to a real estate professional on a website or third-party platform, Smart Alto “assistants” respond to that prospect within 2 minutes, 24/7. Leads flow through the Smart Alto system via direct text and real estate agents are notified when new conversations are started. At any time the real estate agent has the ability to “take over” the conversation. All communication on the real estate agent’s behalf is track on the real estate agent’s individual account which can be found at www.smartalto.com
. Our “assistants” ask the agents questions on their behalf either via SMS. Smart Alto users can also use our pre-written campaigns to foster and nurture long term relationships with past clients and leads via text. Today, we are focused on real estate agents but in the future, we will work with other types of consumer focused sales professionals.
In order to obtain access to certain Services, you may need to register by creating an account with Smart Alto. If you choose to create an account, you agree to provide only accurate, complete registration information, and you will keep that information up-to-date if it changes. When you register, you will be asked to provide your email address and create a password (a “Password”). Access to the Services is not authorized by any other person or entity using your email address and Password and you are responsible for preventing such unauthorized use. Individuals and entities whose privilege to access the Site or use the Services has previously been terminated by Smart Alto may not register for an account, nor may you designate any of those individuals to use your account on your behalf. You are solely responsible for any and all access to the Services by persons using your email address and Password. Please notify us immediately if you become aware that your email address and Password are being used without authorization. Although it is Smart Alto's intention for the Services to be available as much as possible, there will be occasions when the Services may be interrupted, including, without limitation, for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and/or equipment.
You may cancel or terminate your Password, account and/or use of any Services, with or without cause at any time, by providing written notice to Smart Alto via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Smart Alto reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to modify, suspend, or discontinue at any time, with or without notice, the Site, the Applications or any of the Services.

Smart Alto offers various service plans with different features and subscription terms for the Services (the “Service Plans”).
Smart Alto has a free demo period, but not a free trial period. You may cancel or upgrade or downgrade the Services Plan. By selecting one of the Service Plans, you agree on behalf of yourself and your Organization to the terms and conditions associated with such Service Plan, including the applicable pricing and the subscription term of such Service Plan, which is a minimum of three calendar months.
All fees (the “Fees”) associated with the Service Plans shall be automatically charged to a credit card and paid in U.S. dollars. Smart Alto reserves the right to increase any such Fees at any time upon reasonable notice posted in advance in accordance with the Section “Modifications” below. Any such increase shall apply after the then current subscription term ends.
When you sign-up for any Service Plan, you will provide a credit card number and agree that Smart Alto may bill your credit card for the Fees, renewals and any related taxes. In making payments, you acknowledge that you are not relying on future availability of any Service Plans beyond the current subscription term or any upgrades or feature enhancements. If you change your Service Plan, Smart Alto will charge for the difference between your current Service Plan and your new Service Plan.
You agree to pay all Fees in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions. Payments or payment processing for the Fees may be handled by Smart Alto or unaffiliated third parties (e,g., companies that provide credit card processing services) (“Third Party Processors”).
In addition, to the extent that any sales, use or other similar taxes are payable by Smart Alto or Third Party Processor in connection with the Service Plan selected by you, you agree to pay to Smart Alto or such Third Party Processor the amount of such taxes in addition to any other amounts owing for such Service Plan.
The subscription term of all Service Plans will automatically renew for periods equal to the initial subscription term, which is no fewer than 3 calendar months. If the subscription is terminated, it will terminate at the end of the then-current month, but there will not be any credits or refunds for amounts accrued or paid prior to such termination unless required by law (e,g., there is no refund for annual plans paid in full for 12 calendar months).
Smart Alto may change, modify, or eliminate any Service Plan at any time, with or without notice. You agree that Smart Alto will bear no liability to you or any third party if Smart Alto does so.
ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-CANCELLABLE AND NON-CREDITABLE UNLESS SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED OTHERWISE IN THE APPLICABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNLESS REQUIRED BY LAW.Modification

Your continued use of the Site, the Applications or the Services after the posting of changes constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes.

If Smart Alto requires your acceptance of the changed terms, changes are effective only after your acceptance.
