At Florida Web Architects LLC, we use three documents to define our services, mutual expectations, privacy of your data, and what constitutes acceptable usage of our services. All three documents are available on this page and can be accessed by clicking on the document headers below.
Terms of Service
This Web Hosting Agreement (this “Agreement”) is between Florida Web Architects LLC, a Florida Company formed under the laws of the State of Florida with its principal office at 20301 Grande Oak Shoppes Drive, Suite 118-52, Estero, FL 33928 (“Florida Web Architects”) and the person (individual or legal person or legal entity) who signs Florida Web Architects’s service order and set up form (the “Order”) incorporating this Agreement by reference (“Customer”). This Agreement governs Customer’s use of Florida Web Architects’s Web Hosting service.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, and contingent on Customer’s satisfaction of Florida Web Architects’s credit approval requirements, Florida Web Architects agrees to provide the web hosting services described in the Order for the fees stated in the Order.
The initial service term of the Agreement shall begin on the date that Florida Web Architects generates an e-mail message to Customer announcing the activation of the Customer’s account (the “Service Commencement Date”) and shall continue for the number of months stated in the Order (the “Initial Term”). Upon expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement shall automatically renew unless Florida Web Architects or Customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal through the customer center which is located at http://www.flwebarchitects.com/whmcs. The Initial Term and any Renewal Term may be referred to collectively in this Agreement as the “Term.”
Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. Customer’s billing cycle shall be monthly, quarter, semi-annually, annually, or bi-annually as indicated on the Order, beginning on the Service Commencement Date. Florida Web Architects may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the Order provides for credit/debit card billing, Customer authorizes Florida Web Architects to bill subsequent fees to the credit/debit card on or after the first day of each successive billing cycle during the Term of this Agreement; otherwise Florida Web Architects will invoice Customer via electronic mail to the Primary Customer Contact listed on the Order. Invoiced fees may be issued on or before the 1st day of each billing cycle, and the fees shall be due on the 7th day following invoice date, but in no event earlier than the first day of each billing cycle.
Payments must be made in United States dollars. Customer is responsible for providing Florida Web Architects with changes to billing information (such as credit card expiration, change in billing address) at its option, Florida Web Architects may accrue charges to be made to a credit/debit card until such charges exceed $10.00. Florida Web Architects may charge interest on overdue amounts at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law. Florida Web Architects may suspend the service without notice if payment for the service is overdue. Fees not disputed within sixty (60) days of due date are conclusively deemed accurate. Customer agrees to pay Florida Web Architects’s reasonable reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment, and to pay Florida Web Architects’s reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs.
(b) Fee Increases.
Florida Web Architects may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a Renewal Term by giving notice to Customer of the new fees at least forty five (45) days prior to the beginning of the Renewal Term, and if Customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 2 above, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that Renewal Term and any subsequent Renewal Terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent Renewal Term).
At Florida Web Architects’s request Customer shall remit to Florida Web Architects all sales, VAT or similar tax imposed on the provision of the services (but not in the nature of an income tax on Florida Web Architects); regardless of whether Florida Web Architects fails to collect the tax at the time the related services are provided.
Refunds are only valid on the the initial term for Shared and Reseller web hosting packages. Refunds are not available on VPS Servers, Dedicated Servers, Cloud Servers, or Domain Registrations, or any other services not listed here. Refunds are not available on account renewals.
At times when a Credit is issued to an account for any reason, this credit is non-refundable. Furthermore any positive credit balance on an account at the time of account termination is immediately forfeited.
(f) Early Termination.
Customer acknowledges that the amount of the fee for the service is based on Customer’s agreement to pay the fee for the entire Initial Term, or Renewal Term, as applicable. In the event Florida Web Architects terminates the Agreement for Customer’s breach of the Agreement in accordance with Section 9 (Termination), or Customer terminates the service other than in accordance with Section 9 (Termination) for Florida Web Architects’s breach, the unpaid fees for each billing cycle remaining in the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable, are due on the business day following termination of the Agreement.
All disputes and overcharges must be reported directly to the Company, in writing, within thirty (30) days. Any Customer that initiates a chargeback, reversal, retrieval request, or other dispute with their credit card issuing bank and/or PayPal (“Dispute”) will be immediately suspended or terminated pending investigation. The Customer agrees to pay a “Research Fee” of $35.00 USD per Dispute regardless of the actual validity of the charge.
Customer agrees to use the service in compliance with applicable law and Florida Web Architects’s Acceptable Use Policy posted at http://www.redcellar.com/legal (the “AUP”), which is hereby incorporated by reference in this Agreement. Customer agrees that Florida Web Architects may, in its reasonable commercial judgment consistent with industry standards, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on Customer’s use of the Services. Amendments to the AUP are effective on the earlier of Florida Web Architects’s notice to Customer that an amendment has been made, or the first day of any Renewal Term that begins subsequent to the amendment. Customer agrees to cooperate with Florida Web Architects’s reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between Florida Web Architects and Customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, Florida Web Architects’s commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.
