We offer this website, including all information, tools and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated here.

These Terms of Service apply to all users of the site, including users who are browsers, vendors, customers, commenters and contributors of content—without exception.

SECTION 8 – USER COMMENTS AND FEEDBACK
We welcome comments and feedback, and make provision for such via our Contact Form and comments field. However, you agree that we may, at any time, without restriction, edit, copy, publish, distribute, translate and otherwise use in any medium any comments that you forward to us. We are and shall be under no obligation to (1) maintain any comments in confidence, (2) pay compensation for any comments, or (3) respond to any comments.

SECTION 9 – PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your submission of personal information through the website is governed by our Privacy Statement. We recommend that you view this statement immediately.
SECTION 10 – CONCLUSION OF SERVICE AND PAYMENT
Full payment on all packages and services is required upfront. Our work of service, “the contract,” concludes when we notify you by email that the job is over. You’ll have a week to lodge any further queries. At the end of the week, we send you a zipped file of all the source files you need to make substantial changes to the website later. In this way, you’re no longer depend on us and should you choose to work with another designer in the future, you’ll have all you need.
In the event a payment plan is agreed upon, we keep the login credentials of the website until full payment is completed. If payment is not received, we reserve the right to lock you out of the website as our first course of action. If payment is still withheld, we further reserve the right to delete the website. The website’s domain name is your property as is your contract with your webhost and any images and content you have supplied. However, the website’s theme, structure, settings, plugins and configuration is our property until payment is completed in full.
SECTION 11 – RESPONSIBILITY AFTER CONCLUSION OF SERVICE
Once we have completed our service for you, the maintenance of your website and your website’s SEO is your responsibility. This includes, but is no way limited to, the updating of your WordPress theme, updating any and all of your installed plugins, the regular updating of the WordPress platform itself, and backing up your site regularly. Should something go wrong, you should direct your enquiry to your webhost, who should assist you as part of the support service you pay for. We are not responsible for mistakes you make in changing the settings or configuration of the website, or in installing plugins that affect the same. If you seek help from us, we may consider quoting you for the job, but we are not obliged to assist.
For clients who have purchased the Classic and Premier Package, you will receive notifications from Themify for the plugins installed related to the web-building software, but these do not require updating.
SECTION 12 – POLICY ON REFUNDS, UPGRADES AND THE RECOMMISSION FEE
Even before payment is made, we have begun working on your project. We never take on work that we haven’t first assessed in terms of all the factors involved. For this reason, we do not offer refunds. No exceptions.
Clients are welcome to upgrade between packages. Simply paying the difference between the two packages is sufficient unless we’ve already installed the theme you’ve purchased. In this case, we require an additional $100. (Why? The change-my-mind administrative fee covers the cost of time and labour to uninstall one theme and install the new theme, re-configuring the site-wide settings.)
If a client wishes to upgrade from Turbo or Turbo+ to one of the website packages, we require the difference and an additional $150. (Why? Because we’ll need to rebuild your site entirely from scratch. Any work we’ve done on your existing site has to be redone.)
Downgrades are not allowed.
Web design and SEO is a collaborative project, as there are decisions the client needs to make in terms of design, content and offsite factors. If in the unlikely event, a client stalls the project and three (3) months lapse, the project is deemed terminated and no refund is given. The project will only begin again after a recommission fee of $150 is paid. An additional $50 will be charged for each subsequent month. In other words, after four (4) months, a recommission fee of $200 is due. After five (5) months, $250 is required, and so on. Should more than nine (9) months pass, the full fee will need to be paid again.
(Why a recommission fee? Again, this administrative fee covers the cost of time and labour involved in rescheduling the project, processing the software updates that have accumulated during the lapsed period, and reviewing the project from scratch to ensure a smooth conclusion.)
SECTION 13 – ERRORS, INACCURACIES AND OMISSIONS
Occasionally there may be information on our site or in the Service that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to our services and pricing. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information on the website is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).
We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information on the website, including pricing information, except as required by law. No specified update or refresh date applied on the website, should be taken to indicate that all information has been modified or updated.
We do not take responsibility for typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions on third-party websites and services.
SECTION 14 – PROHIBITED USES
In addition to other prohibitions as set forth in the Terms of Service, you are prohibited from using the site or its content: (a) for any unlawful purpose; (b) to solicit others to perform or participate in any unlawful acts; (c) to violate any international, federal, provincial or state regulations, rules, laws, or local ordinances; (d) to infringe upon or violate our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of others; (e) to harass, abuse, insult, harm, defame, slander, disparage, intimidate, or discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, race, age, national origin, or disability; (f) to submit false or misleading information; (g) to upload or transmit viruses or any other type of malicious code that will or may be used in any way that will affect the functionality or operation of the service or of any related website, other websites, or the Internet; (h) to collect or track the personal information of others; (i) to spam, phish, pretext, spider, crawl, or scrape; (j) for any obscene or immoral purpose; or (k) to interfere with or circumvent the security features of the website, other websites, or the Internet. We reserve the right to terminate your use of the website for violating any of the prohibited uses.
SECTION 15 – DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

In no case shall SEO WEB DESIGNS or anyone connected to us be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of the service or any products procured using the service, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the service or any product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the service or any content (or product) posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the service, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
SECTION 16 – INDEMNIFICATION & SEVERABILITY
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless SEO WEB DESIGNS and anyone connected to us, from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms of Service or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
SECTION 17 – TERMINATION
The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.
These Terms of Service are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our services, or when you cease using our site.
If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Service, we also may terminate this agreement at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to our services (or any part thereof).
SECTION 18 – ENTIRE AGREEMENT
The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this site or in respect to the website and the services we offer constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the website, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the drafting party.
