Terms of Service
(Note: These are the same terms of service we must adhere to from the Telco who provides us with the unlimited texting service for all of our customers.)

By using the Mobile Advertising Service you are indicating your acceptance of and agreement to be bound by all of the terms of the TOS. The iCANetwork may modify or revise this TOS from time to time without notice to you. Although The iCANetwork may attempt to notify you when major changes are made to this TOS, you should visit this page periodically to review the TOS. Any modification and/or revision of the TOS will be effective when posted on this page. By continuing to use the Service after such modifications and/or revisions are posted, you agree to be bound by such modifications and revisions. If you do not agree with all of the terms of the TOS, then you may not use this service.
1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
(A.) The Service provides you the right to use the proprietary software offered at ticaap.com that may enable you to view, display, create, edit, and update advertisements, and post conforming commercial and non-commercial messages with text and pictures that can be viewed as mobile application or mobilized website on telephonic and computer devices with connection to the Internet and the World Wide Web, and or via SMS text message using the authorized DOTCOM short code number (368266).
(B.) You also understand and agree that the software itself is the core of the Service, and that changes in the performance and availability of operating systems on mobile and computer devices, the Internet, and the World Wide Web, changes in mobile devices, platform and operating systems, and or changes in SMS services, are beyond the control of The iCANetwork and may change at any time, and that the DOTCOM short code (368266) used with the software is not an integral part of the Service, and that these short codes are provided by third-party providers, and that the performance, availability, and charges associated with these short codes and the associated SMS text messaging service are subject to change at any time by their providers, and are not guaranteed by this Service.
(C.) The use of the DOTCOM short code (368266) is being made available to you on an "AS-IS" basis and based exclusively on current conditions whereby the providers of these short codes are offering the use of these short codes free of charge. You also understand and agree that changes in the performance, availability, and pricing for the use of these short codes are beyond the control of The iCANetwork and may change at any time, and that any changes in the pricing for the use of these short codes shall be passed on to you on a bulk flat rate or per text message basis.
(D.) You understand and agree that The iCANetwork may
determine, in its sole discretion, to limit, change,
or otherwise modify the use of the Service, including
placing advertising riders on applications, mobilized
websites, and text messages used by the Service, changes
in the maximum disk space that will be allotted on The
iCANetwork's servers on your behalf, and the maximum
number of times and the maximum duration for which you
may access the Service in a given period of time. You
acknowledge and agree that these changes may take place
and that The iCANetwork shall have no liability stemming
from such changes. Any additions or modifications to
the Service shall be in the sole discretion of The iCANetwork
or its system providers, and will be subject to this
TOS. You are solely responsible for any fees, charges
and expenses incurred by you in accessing and using
the Service, including, but not limited to, standard
Internet access and mobile carrier charges. The iCANetwork
uses reasonable efforts to ensure that the Service is
available on a 24/7 basis. However, there will be occasions
when the Service will be interrupted for maintenance,
repairs, upgrades, failure of telecommunications links
and equipment, and emergencies that are beyond the control
of The iCANetwork. By using the Service you agree that
The iCANetwork shall not be liable to you for any modification,
suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
(E.) The iCANetwork reserves the right to limit, throttle,
or in severe cases terminate accounts which, in the
sole opinion of The iCANetwork, threaten the integrity
and viability of the entire network by abusing the use
of the SMS text platform. This can include, but is not
limited to, overuse or irresponsible use of the SMS

3. FEES FOR USING THE SERVICE
Any monetary consideration you paid to be able to use this Service pays exclusively and specifically for your right to use the web-based software which enables you to view, display, create, edit, update, and post conforming messages that can be accessed as a mobile application or via the mobile web. Any monetary consideration you paid does not give you ownership of any code, aspect, part, or component of the software, and does not pay for any other web-related services. You do not own any part of the software that is used in any part of the Service. No refunds shall be given for discontinued use, unused software licenses, prepaid services, or for any installation, activation, custom or standard programming performed on behalf of an application, website, or domain name that has been configured, used or prepared to be used to function with the service.

6. RESELLING THE SERVICE / AFFILIATE PROGRAM
If you decide to resell, market, promote, offer or otherwise represent the Service to others, you hereby agree to market, promote, distribute, use, and offer for use the Service in a responsible manner, and agree to the burden of exclusive and absolute responsibility for all your Users. You agree to use only methods, media, materials and documents approved by The iCANetwork, and strictly comply with any and all governmental laws pertaining to the sending of commercial messages via the Internet and telephonic devices. The iCANetwork expressly forbids you from marketing, promoting, distributing, using, or offering this Service for use as a tool to deliver unacceptable materials as defined in Section4 above and/or unsolicited commercial messages sent to personal computers and mobile devices. You may not promote or refer to this Service or to The iCANetwork when using any form of unsolicited commercial messages or any messages not approved by The iCANetwork. You understand and agree that The iCANetwork shall have exclusive and final right to determine the occurrence of any violation regarding these matters, whether by you or your Users, and reserves the right to immediately terminate your right to the Service.
The iCANetwork MAY make certain “Marketing Materials” available to you for the promotion of the iCANetwork phone apps program, which are accessible through your online account manager. Such materials may include banners, buttons, text links, email copy, signature files, etc. and may be updated by The iCANetwork from time to time. You are authorized to use any of the then current marketing materials made available in this manner, and are responsible for maintaining current materials in your promotions. Promotion is restricted to the use of these materials. Corporate approval may be granted for new marketing materials submitted to us by distributors.
You may not promote your affiliation with The iCANetwork through the sending “spam” or “bulk email” (unless to your opt-in subscribers or opt-in subscribers of a reputable no-spam mail house). Further, you may not make postings of an advertising nature to any Internet newsgroup, forum, chat room, or other public community, unless that community expressly accepts the posting of such information (almost all do not). (“Signature files” as approved and provided by The iCANetwork are excluded from this restriction.) Additionally, any commissions generated as a result of spamming will not be paid to any upline positions.
You may enroll as an Affiliate and then sign up as a Phone App customer under your own Affiliate account, but you will not receive commissions on your personal app purchases.
To qualify for commissions, you must enroll and maintain TWO paying Phone App customers. These customers can be either from your own personal referrals, or customers referred by your Tier Two Sub Affiliates.
We reserve the right to change our pricing anytime
to run specials and to reflect changing costs and market
conditions. The telcom industry is in a constant state
of evolution. Thus we pay commissions on a percentage
basis rather than at a flat rate. We also may make available
certain special services related to the Phone App or
SMS Texting platforms, including but not limited to
Custom Setup services. These special services generate
no affiliate commissions.
Commissions are paid automatically. You may request disbursement of commissions via options available in your Members Area, which options may change from time to time. A thirty day “holding period” is applied on all transactions. Minimum commission payment is $25. Monthly commissions begin to accrue beginning with the second month on all new Upgrade Services websites referred by you.
Commissions will be paid the 20th of month, following the month in which commissions are generated. Any cancellations or terminations will be debited from the following month’s commissions if applicable.
