Refund and Cancellation
THE LEVEL8 AGENCY, LLC does not provide refunds for any monies paid, deposits, web design fees or service fees of any kind. Due to the nature of our business, no refunds will be given. It is your responsibility to make sure you want a product and/or service before purchasing. If, however you place your order and you change your mind, or you need to put your project on hold for a length of time, THE LEVEL8 AGENCY, LLC will issue store credit in lieu of a refund for use at a later date. The store credit must be redeemed within 2 months. Credits that are not redeemed within 2 months will be forfeited to THE LEVEL8 AGENCY, LLC.
A chargeback is not an acceptable means of attaining a refund and is considered a threat. To request a chargeback on your credit card for a valid transaction is considered fraud. Fraudulent credit card chargebacks will be aggressively prosecuted and reported to all major credit bureaus as a delinquent collection account. Opening a PayPal dispute for a refund will be handled in exactly the same way as a credit card chargeback. THE LEVEL8 AGENCY, LLC will proceed with legal action and collection services against the client, business, and individual person to recover funds. We will also delete any and all files, graphics or materials that we have in relation to the client’s website.
Website Development Cancellation
If site design and development work has already begun (such as planning, creating a design concept, or domain transfer), then the down payment is non-refundable.
DESCRIPTION OF ONGOING COSTS: DOMAIN REGISTRATION AND HOSTING
This cost recurs annually. Domain name registration gives you exclusive rights to a certain name, such as www.mygroup.org, so that you can use it for your web-based purposes. We DO NOT provide hosting services but we have a list of ones we recommend.
This cost recurs annually. Hosting places the domain name on a particular server connected to the web, which allows you to post a website for viewing through a browser. Hosting comes with domain-based emails, bandwidth, storage space, database and security tools, and other features. Prior to coding your site, we require proof and login information for your hosting account.
There are no required maintenance fees other than domain registration and hosting. Most people do some work on their site every year, for which we offer several plans. We can make certain parts of the site updatable by you by implementing a custom Content Management System (CMS), or installing a blog. For work we do on the site after going live, we charge on an hourly basis. If you expect that maintenance will be a regular occurrence, you can buy a prepaid maintenance contract that affords a discounted hourly rate. If need be, we can customize a maintenance plan for your particular needs, but no plan is required.
Website Maintenance Payment Obligations
Depending upon the nature of the website changes, prepayment may be required. Should the client be invoiced after the changes are completed, the invoice is due upon receipt. If payment is not received within 5 days, the maintenance changes may be taken down until payment is received. After 60 days, there may also be a $35 reposting fee added to the outstanding maintenance invoice balance.
Training and Tutorials
Because customer service is an integral part of our business strategy, all of our projects include a one-time complimentary training session in order for our clients to better make use of their new web technology. Additional training hours can be purchased at our standard hourly rate or applied against your existing maintenance contract.
