15. Governing Law/Disputes
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, and contingent on Customer’s satisfaction of Primate Masterminds’ approval requirements, Primate Masterminds agrees to provide the web hosting and/or design and/or promotion or consulting 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 Primate Masterminds generates an e-mail message to Customer announcing successful initial payment (via PayPal receipt, Recurly Receipt) (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 for unlimited successive renewal terms of the same length as the Initial Term (each a “Renewal Term”) unless Primate Masterminds or Customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable. The Initial Term and any Renewal Term may be referred to collectively in this Agreement as the “Term.”
(a) Fees. Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. Customer’s billing cycle shall be monthly or annually as indicated on the Order, beginning on the Service Commencement Date. Primate Masterminds may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the Order provides for credit/debit card billing, Customer authorizes Primate Masterminds 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.
Payments must be made in United States dollars. Customer is responsible for providing Primate Masterminds with changes to billing information (such as credit card expiration, change in billing address) At its option, Primate Masterminds may accrue charges to be made to a credit/debit card until such charges exceed $10.00. Primate Masterminds may charge interest on overdue amounts at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law. Primate Masterminds 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 Primate Masterminds’ reasonable reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment, and to pay Primate Masterminds’ reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs.
(b) Fee Increases. Primate Masterminds 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).
(c) Taxes. At Primate Masterminds’ request Customer shall remit to Primate Masterminds all sales, VAT or similar tax imposed on the provision of the services (but not in the nature of an income tax on Primate Masterminds), regardless of whether Primate Masterminds fails to collect the tax at the time the related services are provided.
(d) Early Termination. Customer acknowledges that Primate Masterminds may terminate this Agreement at any time if Customer violates this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy posted at http://localseo.org/acceptable-use-policy (the “AUP”), which is hereby incorporated by reference in this Agreement. 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 Primate Masterminds 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 Primate Masterminds’ 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.
4. Law/AUP. Customer agrees to use the service in compliance with applicable law and the AUP. Customer agrees that Primate Masterminds 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 Primate Masterminds’ 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 Primate Masterminds’ reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between Primate Masterminds and Customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, Primate Masterminds’ commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.
5. Customer Information. Customer represents and warrants to Primate Masterminds that the information he, she or it has provided and will provide to Primate Masterminds for purposes of establishing and maintaining the service is accurate. If Customer is an individual, Customer represents and warrants to Primate Materminds that he or she is at least 18 years of age. Primate Masterminds may rely on the instructions of the person listed as the Primary Customer Contact on the Order with regard to Customer’s account until Customer has provided a written notice changing the Primary Customer Contract.
6 Indemnification. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Primate Masterminds, its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against all claims and expenses, demands, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, fines, punitive damages, amounts in interest, expenses and disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever (including reasonable attorneys fees) brought by a third party under any theory of legal liability arising out of or related to the actual or alleged use of Customer’s services in violation of applicable law or the AUP by Customer or any person using Customer’s log on information, regardless of whether such person has been authorized to use the services by Customer.
