2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

This Agreement applies to the various services provided by Digital Admen Professional Web Services.

Purchase of a Professional Web Services plan is in according to the parameters specific to your plan, as described below:

WordPress Website Development

  • Standard WordPress Website Development includes complete development using a WordPress theme and up to two (2) comprehensive rounds of revisions for the entire website (not to include new content or “breaking the template”.) You hereby acknowledge that some revisions may not be possible given the parameters of the template being used, and as such will hold Digital Admen harmless for not implementing such modifications.

All modifications must be received as one complete set of revisions. Any delayed transmission of material necessary to complete those modifications shall not be construed as a new round, but rather a delay in transmission. Any new instructions transmitted after the original set of modifications is received shall be considered a new round of modifications, even if transmitted with pending material or requested clarifications and all applicable fees and restrictions will apply.

Each additional round of modifications requested beyond the number given as a part of this service will incur a fee of $150.00, which is due in full prior to the implementation of those modifications.

Should you decide to change templates for any reason after work has begun, then a fee will be assessed in the amount of $250.00 U.S. Dollars. This fee will be due in full prior to additional revisions being made.

All milestone approvals are final. Should you decide to make additional changes after any milestone approval has been received, then an additional fee will be assessed in the amount of $100.00 U.S. Dollars. This fee will be due in full prior to additional revisions being made.

Our comprehensive WordPress development requires unfettered access to various digital properties, including a Gmail account to set up Google Analytics and Google Search Console. Should you not be able to provide access to such accounts you hereby authorize Digital Admen to create these accounts on your behalf. All ownership of these accounts will transfer automatically upon reception of the final payment.

Once the website has met with your final approval it will be launched on your live domain. Your website will be developed according to the parameters specific to your project (e.g., number of pages, premium image use, e-commerce capability, etc.) and includes all copy writing, graphic design, and programming necessary to complete the development and take the website live.

All websites developed in this manner carry an automatic warranty period of 30 days. This period will begin immediately once the website has been finalized and final payment received. All login credentials we created or you provided to us during development will be remitted along with any necessary debriefing material (if applicable).

All super administrative access (e.g., “Administrator” role permission for the CMS, etc.) to the website is solely maintained by our programmers for the duration of the warranty period. This is to prevent unauthorized changes to the website that may damage the site, alter functionality, or affect design. We can provide full webmaster service at any time after the website is launched, which can run concurrently with the warranty period should you need additional services beyond what is covered in the basic warranty (special discounts may apply).

All super administrative access will be remitted upon expiration of the warranty period or immediately should the warranty become voided for any reason. The warranty is immediately voided in the event any changes are made to the website by anyone outside of our development or maintenance teams. For the duration of the warranty period, any changes that need to be made to the website (e.g., adding a new product, etc.) must be made by our development or maintenance teams and as such are either charged at a significant discount or completely free (depending on the alteration). The warranty only pertains to original design and functionality of the website. Any new changes to the website after launch are considered new work and subject to charges accordingly (e.g., adding new pages, breaking the template, etc.)

If your website breaks or requires fixing within 90 days of the Sign Off Date, due to breakage or defect in the original stack of approved plugins, then we will submit a ‘fix ticket’ to restore the site back at no extra charge.

Should the breakage occur outside of the 30 days covered herein, or is due to plugins, add-ons, or site updates outside of the original stack of approved plugins, then charges will be incurred commensurate with the scope of work to fix the website.

SEO Services

In order to receive the best results possible, SEO Services should be undertaken with a minimum 12 month commitment, as such, you are expected to stay at the agreed upon price or higher for a sustained 12 month period.

If you purchase a monthly plan, then you can cancel your SEO Services by submitting a written thirty (30) day notice (email is acceptable) and Digital Admen will not bill you after those thirty (30) days. However, if your cancellation period overlaps with a normal service period, then your final invoice will be prorated accordingly based on the difference between the two. For example, if your campaign started on the 1st of the month and you submitted a 30 day cancellation notice on the 15th, then you would only pay half of your normal monthly fee to cover the difference of the final service period. 

If you purchase a semiannual or annual plan, you can cancel your SEO Services at any time by submitting a written thirty (30) day notice (email is acceptable) and Digital Admen will issue a prorated refund to you for unused months based on the current rate of SEO Services at that time. However, you will not be refunded the cost of the current or past months.

  • Results: Search engines ultimately arbitrarily choose which rankings are assigned to what websites. While our practices have historically given our customers higher search rankings for competitive keywords, no SEO Service provider, including Digital Admen, can guarantee rankings on any search engine for any keyword. Typically results don’t start occurring until month 7 of a 12 month campaign, however, every website and industry is different and could experience different time frames and results.
  • Website Access: In order for SEO activities to be effective, Digital Admen must have full administrative website credentials user access in order to make on-site changes. By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you are hereby granting Digital Admen permission to post on your behalf on your website for SEO purposes.

You hereby authorize Digital Admen to bill this payment source by the invoice due date unless alternative sources are provided. Any failures to pay will result in immediate work stoppage and you will be responsible for all fees associated with late payment collection, such as returned check fees.
  • Terminating Services: If you elect to cancel these SEO Services, then you become solely responsible for maintaining any and all of the on-site or off-site SEO optimizations previously done by Digital Admen.

Social Media Management

You can cancel Social Media Management Service at any time by submitting a written thirty (30) day notice (email is acceptable) and Digital Admen will not bill you for future months. However, you will not be refunded the cost of the present or past months.

  • Account Access: In order for Social Media Management to be effective, Digital Admen must have administrator level social media account credentials and unfettered access to the accounts in order to make native platform posts and changes. By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you are hereby granting permission to post on your behalf on your website and various digital properties for Social Media Management purposes.
  • Automatic Billing: In order to expedite results and not delay service, Digital Admen requires automatic billing for your Social Media Management. You hereby authorize Digital Admen to bill this payment source by the invoice due date unless alternative sources are provided. Any failures to pay will result in immediate work stoppage and you will be responsible for all fees associated with late payment collection, such as returned check fees.
  • Terminating Services: If you elect to cancel these Social Media Management Services, then you become solely responsible for maintaining any and all of the optimizations, organic growth, and funnels previously done by Digital Admen.

3. YOUR OBLIGATIONS

Reasonable Requests.  You agree that all of your requests will be reasonable in nature and within the scope of the Services purchased.

Obligation to Maintain Subscription.  All Services, including any free products or services included in your plan, must be associated with a specific website or online store at the time of purchase and are not transferable to other accounts, websites or online stores thereafter. Provision of all Services, including any free products or services included in your plan, is dependent upon your active subscription to the Services. Failure to maintain your account in good standing will result in termination of any outstanding or pending Services, including any free products or services included in your plan, without refund or credit. Recurring billing for your Services plan will begin on the date of purchase unless otherwise set by agreement.

Provision and Timing of Design Services.  After your initial purchase of a Website or Online Store Design plan, you will be required to (i) complete an initial consultation with Digital Admen, and (ii) provide any content you deem necessary to be included in the initial build of your Website or Online Store, such as product descriptions. Upon reception of all of your content, we will begin developing your Website or Online Store.

Submission of Content.  You are responsible for submitting all proprietary copy, images, branding, and other content necessary for your design, unless the content is to be provided by Digital Admen. All content you provide should be copies and not the originals.

You agree to respond to any request for content, feedback or approval within three (3) business days. All content must be submitted electronically and we will not return any materials you provide. Arrangements may be made for the physical delivery of files that are too large to be transmitted electronically, but additional fees may apply and the quoted completion date may be extended.

We may in our sole discretion, require you to re-submit images if we determine that the images are not of high enough quality, not the proper file type, or the right dimensions to use. If you do not submit the content requested within five (5) business days, we will consider your content submission complete, and we reserve the right to progress the site to the next phase of development without it, and you will only be able to add additional content using Webmaster Minutes. It is your responsibility to maintain independent back-up copies of any materials you submit. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for any loss, damage, or destruction of any content or materials you submit to us.

Legal Compliance.  You agree to be solely responsible for all legal compliance, including all images, processes, age restrictions, paid/restricted access, sales tax collection, collection of shipping charges, images, and text. All text that is created for the fulfillment of any Professional Service, including the creation of a Privacy Policy, Website Terms & Conditions, Product Terms & Conditions, Refund Policy, or Shipping Policy are done in good faith by Digital Admen, but are not considered legally vetted. Oftentimes tools are used to generate text of this nature and as such you agree to hold Digital Admen harmless for the lack of legal compliance contained therein.   

Automatic Publication.  Within five (5) business days of receiving notice that your Website or Online Store is ready for final review, you must either (i) provide Digital Admen with your revisions, or (ii) notify Digital Admen that you have no revisions, thus giving your final approval of all work up to that point and your consent to launch the website on your live domain.

If you fail to take either such action within five (5) business days, your Website or Online Store will be published on your live domain without additional changes and the final milestone payment charged to the payment source on file. Any time after publication, you may elect to de-publish your site by changing DNS settings on your domain name.

Completion of Service.  Publication of your website on your live domain is acknowledgement of your satisfaction with the Services provided to date and releases Digital Admen from any obligation for further revisions or alterations at that time unless Webmaster Minutes or Monthly Webmaster Service are initiated. You also acknowledge and agree that once your website is published, you will not be entitled to any credits or refunds for any reason including, but not limited to, dissatisfaction with your website.

Webmaster Service Changes.  Your subscription may have included a Webmaster Service plan. Once you have maintained your Services subscription for a full twelve (12) months, you may contact Digital Admen to change your plan. Your selection is limited to the Webmaster Service plans available at the time of renewal.

Privacy.  We may need to provide administrative permissions and access, to subcontract a portion of the development to various unidentified third-party service providers, like Yelp or Google. You hereby authorize Digital Admen to provide the necessary access and permissions to third parties as deemed necessary by Digital Admen in order to complete the development of your website.

Our Right to Terminate Your Service. You understand and agree that Digital Admen has the absolute right and power, in its sole discretion and without any liability to you whatsoever, to terminate your Service for any reason, including:

  1. If you fail to complete the project questionnaire, provide login credentials, or submit content for your initial design within two (2) months of purchasing your Service.

  2. If you fail to provide any other requested content, feedback or approval within thirty (30) days of our request for them.

Your Right to Terminate Our Service. Digital Admen understands and agrees that you have the absolute right and power to terminate your Service for any reason, including if:

  1. You are not happy with the Service or dissatisfaction with the design.
  2. You have chosen to go in another direction and have either hired another development team, hired a freelancer, or used your own in house staff to complete the project or provide the Service.
  3. You can no longer financially afford the Service.

If we have begun work on your project in any manner (which includes any commencement of the creative process, design process, programming, research, SEO process, or copywriting), you may be eligible for a partial refund of the fees, but you will be charged for the work completed to date, plus a cancellation fee at the rates described in our refund policy.

A notice of cancellation must be received in writing (email is acceptable) in order to terminate any Service. Additional cancellation requirements may vary depending on the Service. See Service specifications for details.

User Content.  It is solely your responsibility to ensure that any and all User Content provided to Digital Admen to perform the Services on your behalf does not infringe or violate the intellectual property rights (including, but not limited to, trademarks, trade names, copyrights, patents, domain registration rights, trade secrets) or any other right of any third party (including, but not limited to, rights of privacy and contractual rights), and/or to ensure that you have acquired any authorization(s) necessary to use intellectual property (including, but not limited to, copyrights and trademarks) or other proprietary information of third parties therein included in the User Content.  We shall have no liability and you agree to hold harmless, defend and indemnify Digital Admen against any actual or alleged claim that any User Content provided by you infringes or violates any rights of third parties, including, without limitation, rights of publicity, rights of privacy, patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and/or licenses.

The Right to Showcase includes, but is not limited to: before and after images, previous work portfolio exhibition, case study exhibition, and extends to all forms of current media and future media, whether electronic or print in nature. The Right to Showcase shall remain in effect in perpetuity despite the termination of services for any reason, including but not limited to project completion and early cancellation.
