Terms and Acceptable Use Policy < Back

WebWorksPro, Inc. reserves the right to change this Policy at any time.  WebWorksPro, Inc. strives to provide the best possible service to all our customers, but we will not tolerate any unlawful activity or abuse on our servers. We respect freedom of speech and expression unless it is harmful to others. These brief guidelines are imposed to protect you, other WebWorksPro, Inc. customers and us against such harm.

Payment Policies, Fees, and Terms of Agreement:
WebWorksPro, Inc. may require: a) the domain name fee of $16.50 per year (if necessary), b) one-time setup charge and first month's hosting, and c) 50% of estimated design and production cost as a retainer to begin work. The retainer for design work is not refundable. 

WebWorksPro, Inc. will provide Customer with an initial design layout which defines the structure of the future website to be developed.  Once the initial layout is approved by Customer, production commences for the web site in it's entirety.  If approval via email is not received from Customer after two initial layouts have been provided, an hourly charge for further design may apply thereafter.

At the time of domain registration and activation, a basic hosting charge of $25 will begin on a monthly basis during site production of all accounts. Standard and Executive Maintenance account charges begin upon site completion and launching.  All monetary transactions are in $US dollars. Services can be added or removed at any time. WebWorksPro, Inc. reserves the right to change prices at any time.

Account Cancellation:
WebWorksPro, Inc. does not require a timed contract for service.  You may cancel at anytime with a 30-day notice. Phone requests will not constitute acceptance of any cancellation. To cancel an account, send a cancellation request via email or help desk ticket and include with your domain name. It is the Customer's Responsibility to secure confirmation from WebWorksPro, Inc. that account has been cancelled. If the client has not yet received confirmation of account cancellation, then the account remains active, and you will continue to be invoiced.

If Customer has a balance due at the time of cancellation, this balance must be paid in full. Cancellation does not absolve Client of any outstanding financial obligations.

In the unlikely event of an account cancellation, it is the responsibility of Customer and/or the new host provider to contact the domain granting authority regarding the transfer procedure.

Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation or service to other WebWorksPro, Inc. customers. You will be notified in 24 hours about offending cgi script.

Traffic Policy/Disk Space - All account plans come with a predetermined amount of traffic allowance. You can monitor your transfer at anytime in your Control Panel.  Traffic (outbound bandwidth) is measured and is used up each time a file is served from the site.  Most of our users do not use up all their bandwidth each month.  Should traffic exceed the bandwidth allowance, your site may be temporarily disabled, but additional bandwidth is available at a low cost if needed.

Customer understands this service is provided on a shared server. This means that one web-site can not overwhelm the server with heavy CPU usage from highly active scripts. If your web-site abuses or overwhelms the server and causes complaints from the other users, you have outgrown the realm of shared servers, and will need to upgrade to a dedicated server. WebWorksPro, Inc. will refund any unused portion of prepaid services, and if desired, the balance will be credited to dedicated server cost.

If at any time, Customer breaches any part of this contract and WebWorksPro, Inc. must engage in the services of an attorney, then Customer will pay any and all of WebWorksPro, Inc.'s reasonable attorney fees and court costs.  We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason not prohibited by law. Also we reserve the right to terminate service to any customer for any reason not prohibited by law.

Any deliberate attempt to cause damage to WebWorksPro, Inc. or any other Internet servers will result in immediate account deactivation without prior notice. No refund is given in this case.

Backups:
It is the clients' responsibility to maintain local copies of their web content. A backup utility is included in each hosting plan and client can use this tool to back up their files.  WebWorksPro, Inc. is not responsible for loss of data.

Terms:
Customer retains domain name ownership provided by InterNIC or other applicable Internet domain name registry or granting authority.

Customer acknowledges and agrees that WebWorksPro, Inc. has no proprietary, financial, or other interest in Customer's goods or services that may be described in or offered through Customer's Web site.
