ABOUT The Service and Payment Options

Lobster Apps develops and provides certain Apps which assist users in managing their contacts by syncing, restoring merging and backing up their contacts. We offer users different contact management solutions such as: contacts backup & restore, merge duplicates, cleanup, group texting, group sharing & smart dialer, sync of your contact with your social network picture and additional solutions, features and enhancements as may become available by Lobster from time to time.

 

Lobster Apps tries to provide a variety of products to its users, therefore, we may offer users a version of limited Apps or Services for free in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Terms. If you wish to enjoy the full capacity of the Apps or Services that we offer, including use of all or additional features, then you may be required to pay the applicable fees for such use, in order to enjoy the full capacity of the Apps or Services. If you choose to pay for such Apps or Services, you acknowledge and agree that such Payments shall be made through the applicable app store (i.e., in-app payments) and as such shall be subject to the relevant app store terms and conditions, including their terms with respect to refunds or cancellation.

 

Further, some of the Services may include group texting which may impose fees from your mobile carrier, as set forth by each and every mobile operator. Such carrier fees are subject to your own engagement with your mobile carrier and that carrier’s respective policies.

 

Additionally, the user may be offered as part of the Services, the use of our unique email App which creates an organized spreadsheet that will include the information of all of the individuals and companies that the user interacted with through his or her email account (“Mailbook App”). If you choose to use the Mailbook App, we will need to access your email account in order to provide you with this unique service and as such, we will ask you to grant us access to your email account by using the applicable settings in your email account. A real-time automated system will scan your emails for the signatures of the individual or company that you interacted with through such email, located at the end of each email correspondence, extract the names and contact information of such individuals or companies and organize it into a spreadsheet so that you will be able to easily view and access this information. This entire process will only last a few seconds and there will no impact to the regular usage of your email account. You may revoke our access to your email account at any time by changing the setting in your email account however, please note that doing so will prevent you from continuing to use the Mailbook App. Please see our privacy policy for additional policies with respect to the Mailbook App.
