PLEASE READ THIS PAGE
" I AGREE" BUTTON ON BOTTOM OF PAGE TO CONTINUE
By and between WebmasterDeveloper and their web hosting
customer, who henceforth shall be referred to as "Customer".
The parties agree to the following, which shall apply throughout the term
of this agreement:
A. "Plans" shall refer to services offered by WebmasterDeveloper,
as listed online at WebmasterDeveloper.com.
B. "Customer", as mentioned above, shall refer to the end user
who is utilizing the web hosting services provided by WebmasterDeveloper.
All prices for Plans provided by WebmasterDeveloper to its Customers are in U.S.
Dollars. Customers must pay for services provided by WebmasterDeveloper in U.S.
3. ORDER ACCEPTANCE AND PAYMENT
A. All orders are subject to acceptance by WebmasterDeveloper. An order will
be deemed accepted when written (e-mail) confirmation of the order is
sent to the Customer. WebmasterDeveloper may refuse to accept, or delay for any
period of time, any order for any reason.
B. Payment and Terms: Payment shall be made to WebmasterDeveloper in U.S. dollars
only. Payments are due upon account activation and future account renewal,
and must be made through the use of a valid credit card. Payment for services shall be made monthly, in advance, for web hosting and webmaster services retainer payments.
Credit card payments will occur automatically until Customer requests
cessation of service. If shortfalls in payment to WebmasterDeveloper of the full
invoice amount occur due to bank fees, transfer fees, or the like, WebmasterDeveloper
will re-invoice The Customer for the shortfall. All invoices are due upon receipt by The Customer. Should payment in full
of any invoice (aside from the shortfalls mentioned above) not be received
by WebmasterDeveloper within thirty (30) days after account activation or renewal,
WebmasterDeveloper may discontinue, withhold, or suspend services to the Customer.
C. Cancellations of service must be made in writing via the Customer’s
Control Center, and can not be made without the correct account password.
D. Should any Customer attempt a chargeback for services knowingly purchased
from WebmasterDeveloper, WebmasterDeveloper shall immediately shut off services for
that Customer and will pursue full legal recourse against the Customer
to recoup any and all losses. If a chargeback occurs as a result of Customer
error, a $20 fee will be assessed on top of the full chargeback amount.
On a second attempt at a chargeback, WebmasterDeveloper shall immediately discontinue
services to the Customer and pursue full legal recourse to recoup any
and all losses, and future services to the Customer shall be denied.
E. Setup fees, for any services or Plans, are not refundable, regardless
of the length of time the service or Plan is used by the Customer.
F. Should a Customer follow standard procedures and cancel services with
WebmasterDeveloper, they are entitled to a refund equivalent to the length of
time that has been paid for, but not used. This refund is calculated based
on a daily rate, depending on the Plan that was ordered. “Free Months”
are not taken into account when calculating a refund.
G. Billing Cycle: the Billing Cycle for any and all services commence
the day following the day the services/Plans were ordered. WebmasterDeveloper
can not, for any reason, change the Billing Cycle for a Plan or service.
H. The Customer is responsible for providing WebmasterDeveloper with the proper
and correct Billing and Payment Information. Any and all fees incurred
due to incorrect Billing and/or Payment information are the sole responsibility
of the Customer.
I. Changes to services provided to the Customer must be submitted in writing
to the Billing Department and must include the account password. Upgrades
are charged a setup fee of the difference between the setup fees of the
two Plans, and a prorated fee for the difference in Plan prices. Downgrades
do not receive a credit. The Customer must be aware of what will be gained
and/or what will be lost in changing Plans. WebmasterDeveloper is not responsible
for lost files, data and/or information due to changes in Plans. Plans
that have been shut off for 30 days are deleted from our servers. If,
after 30 days and a site has been deleted, a Customer desires to reactivate
a site, they will need to order a new Plan and will be held responsible
for ensuring they have adequate backups/copies of their site. A site that
has been deleted from our servers is not recoverable.
J. WebmasterDeveloper is not responsible for the Customer’s failure to
use the services/Plans offered by WebmasterDeveloper. The Customer has the right
to cancel the services/Plans they have purchased at any time.
4. DUTIES OF WebmasterDeveloper
WebmasterDeveloper may acquire an internet domain name on behalf of the Customer
as specified in the Customer’s request for services. Should the
Customer acquire the domain name on their own, without the assistance
of WebmasterDeveloper, the Customer is responsible for any and all fees necessary
for the acquisition of the domain name. Any costs incurred by WebmasterDeveloper
in the process of obtaining or maintaining a domain name for the Customer
shall be immediately reimbursed to WebmasterDeveloper upon receipt of invoice
for said services and fees.
A. Domain Registration: The Customer is responsible for checking on the
availability of any domain name associated with any of the services offered
by WebmasterDeveloper. The Customer is also responsible for correctly entering
any and all domain information (this includes, but is not limited to,
the spelling of the domain, proper domain extension, etc.) during the
course of ordering any services offered by WebmasterDeveloper. WebmasterDeveloper is
not responsible for domain name availability. If a Plan is built by WebmasterDeveloper
using an unavailable or incorrect domain name, the Customer will be charged
a $20.00 fee for any resulting corrections made by WebmasterDeveloper. WebmasterDeveloper
does not, in any way, alter any domain information when building sites
for the Customer. Domain information is entered solely by the Customer,
and is, therefore, the sole responsibility of the Customer.
B. Domain Changes: If a Plan is ordered using an incorrect domain name,
the Customer will be invoiced for any and all fees incurred by WebmasterDeveloper
in the proper registration/correction/completion of the Customer’s
order. These fees may include, but are not limited to, any administrative
costs, domain registration costs, and costs incurred in the correction
of domain registration information charged by the domain Registrar.
5. LIMITATION OF WebmasterDeveloper's OBLIGATIONS
A. WebmasterDeveloper will utilize its best efforts to maintain acceptable performance
of services contracted for, but WebmasterDeveloper makes absolutely no warranties
whatsoever, express or implied, including warranty of merchantability
or fitness for a particular purpose. WebmasterDeveloper cannot guarantee continuous

by Customer, including, but not limited to, losses or damages of any and
every nature, resulting from the loss of data, inability to access Internet,
or inability to transmit or receive information, caused by, or resulting
from, delays, nondeliveries, or service interuptions whether or not caused
by the fault or negligence of WebmasterDeveloper.
B. WebmasterDeveloper may discontinue servicing any Plan, or may require fulfillment
of conditions WebmasterDeveloper may choose to impose as a prerequisite for continuing
to service any Plan. WebmasterDeveloper agrees to provide Customer with reasonable
notice via e-mail or fax of any such intent to discontinue or impose conditions
unless it is determined that such notice would cause harm to WebmasterDeveloper.

C. WebmasterDeveloper's liability to Customer, and any end user of any Plan or
other WebmasterDeveloper services is limited to the amount paid to and received
by WebmasterDeveloper for services not accepted. In no event shall WebmasterDeveloper
be liable to Customer, or any end user or any other entity for any special,
consequential, or other damages, however caused, whether for breach of
contract, negligence or otherwise, even if WebmasterDeveloper has been advised
of the possibility of such damage.
D. Customer will take all necessary measures to preclude WebmasterDeveloper from
being made a party to any lawsuit or claim regarding WebmasterDeveloper services
provided to any Customer or end user. Customer hereby agrees to indemnify
and hold harmless WebmasterDeveloper from any and all claims of whatever nature

to provide previous copies of customer files (up to two weeks and for

will be avialable as there are unknown issues that may arise preventing
complete or acceptable restorations.

names, service marks, inventions, copyrights, trade secrets, patents,
