- 1. Services
- 1.1. We will provide web publishing and hosting services as described on our website. You must have sufficient equipment and expertise to use the services. We may reformat the content that you provide to best fit our templates.
- 2. Pricing and Payment
- 2.1. The prices for the services are shown on our website. We may change the prices on 30 days' notice, posted on the website. If you purchased an annual subscription, the price will not change during that year. Prices shown are for standard templates. Customizing a website will require an additional set-up fee based on the scope of work.
- 2.2. Monthly subscriptions are payable by credit card, automatically billed the first week of each month. Your account will be considered delinquent if your credit card company refuses for any reason to pay the amount billed to it, and that amount remains unpaid at the beginning of the next billing cycle. Accounts that are delinquent by more than one billing cycle may be suspended, archived, or deleted from the system. Suspended accounts continue to accrue charges until reinstated or cancelled, even if you do not use the account.
- 2.3. Annual subscriptions are payable by credit card or check. If we approved payment by check, then payment on all charges is net 30 days in the currency in which billed. If a due payment is not made within 60 days after the date of the invoice, then a late-fee of 1.5 % per month will be imposed. We also may suspend or terminate your use of the services. There is a $50 fee for each returned check.
- 2.4. If you believe that we billed you incorrectly, you must contact us within 90 days after the closing date of the first billing statement containing the error.
- 2.5. To cancel your subscription, you must do so via our website. All due charges must be paid in full before a cancellation will be considered complete. Service charges will extend to the end of the month in which the subscription is cancelled.

- 3.2. We may terminate this agreement at any time, on 30 days' notice. In that event we will send you a pro-rated refund, if applicable. We may terminate without notice if we reasonably believe that your use of the services poses an immediate risk to our property or rights, or to other customers or the public.
