Website Purchase Terms and Conditions
This SERVICE AGREEMENT is entered between Client (“Client”) and Internet Media Consultants, LLC., (“IMC”), whose offices are located in Littleton Colorado, on the date located on your Work Order (“Effective Date”). The purposes of this Agreement are to offer to Client the terms of a business relationship between IMC and Client, and to specify those services that IMC will provide to Client, services for which Client agrees to pay financial consideration. Receipt by IMC of funds sufficient to cover Client’s initial payment is required for Client to accept this Agreement.
Client and IMC agree to the TERMS AND CONDITIONS as set forth herein. IMC agrees to provide various Internet or Web-based products and services to Client in return for financial consideration, in each instance upon receipt of: a signed Service Agreement and Work Order; any materials, graphics and/or text Client has arranged to provide to IMC; and a minimum payment for such products services, as outlined below.
STANDARD WEBSITE LICENSE
The WEBSITE is licensed to the Client, and grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferrable right to make use of the website, and all included SOFTWARE applications, only on IMC servers. This license does not allow the transfer of files to another host or server. The Website is protected by copyright laws and intellectual property laws. IMC retains all rights not expressly granted to you in this license.
MONTHLY PAYMENTS for HOSTING AND TECHNOLOGY, or other such monthly services, are due to IMC in advance of services to be rendered each month. The first monthly payment must be received by IMC prior to delivery of any services, except such website services requiring a set-up fee. IMC will charge the first monthly fee to the credit card provided by Client upon receipt of the signed Service Agreement and completion of any website development, and will automatically charge all subsequent fees to that credit card every thirty (30) days (or at the beginning of each new Billing Cycle) until the account is canceled or terminated. If Client chooses not to pay by credit card, payment is due upon receipt of invoice on a quarterly basis. IMC shall not increase monthly payments without prior notification to Client. Monthly payments are for activation and availability of services, regardless of Client’s actual usage, including, but not limited to, server usage, email hosting, website technology provided by IMC or another third party through which fees are passed through the Client. All other terms of service apply. Client will also be charged for the renewal of domain name registration each year after the first year of service, if a domain name was registered by IMC for the Client through IMC’s domain name registration reseller account.
