11. Membership Program Terms
One feature of this Website and its services is the “Membership Program.” The following terms apply to those who are signed up for the membership program:
- Memberships are “no-contract,” meaning that they do not have a term period. You can cancel any time you like via the Paypal user interface, or by asking me to suspend payments.
- Payments are scheduled and performed automatically each month. By not cancelling your membership, you are authorizing me to charge you at your membership rate.
- Once a scheduled payment has been made, a refund may be requested but is not guaranteed. Sky Stover Web Design & Internet Marketing, LLC reserves the right to deny a refund for any reason.
- Most membership plans include a fixed amount of time that you are able to use in a given month. In the “Basic” plan, this time does not roll over from month to month, and expires when the next billing period begins. I do it this way so that I’m able to keep “Basic” affordable for the majority of business owners.
- Membership levels above “Basic” do feature roll-over hours for one month. For example, if you have 90 minutes each month and only use 60 of those in May, you will have 120 minutes to work with in June. When June ends, those May minutes disappear. Remember those cell-phone plans back when minutes were a thing? It’s like that.
- Additional hours may be purchased a la carte at the “discount member rate” of $97/hour (50% off of the non-membership rate of $197). I typically will perform overtime work first (after receiving your approval), and will bill for the time I used. I’m fair and I don’t “round up”.
- I make daily automatic back-ups of all client WordPress sites using the platform “ManageWP”. I cannot guarantee that these are error-free, however they’re typically very reliable.
- I make regular updates to plug-ins, themes, and WordPress Core, also using ManageWP. Keeping your site updated is the #1 way to prevent a hack.
- I display my Website link in the footer of all client Websites. This is good for both of our Google rankings.
- I do occasionally make use of third-party contractors in order to spend the most of my time helping you personally. These third-party contractors may be given administrator access to certain parts of your Website or other platforms to perform maintenance, updates, backups, or other scheduled tasks. Reasonable steps have been taken to ensure the fidelity and security of this arrangement. If at any time you would like me to revoke all access from third-party contractors, you must do so in writing. I will revoke access within 7 days and request that any relevant data be destroyed.
- In the event of a payment lapsing, Paypal will usually try again in a few days. If your payment continues to fail, your membership may be cancelled.
- In most cases where I am performing work for you, you own the exclusive copyright and may use the work however you see fit. In certain cases, which will be mentioned in writing, I may opt to retain part or full ownership of work I create.
- I may occasionally use you, your business, your likeness, or screenshots/screen-captures of your Website and/or work I am performing for you for instructional or marketing purposes. I will thoroughly check each video to the best of my ability for any proprietary information that needs to be scrubbed. I own the exclusive copyright to any images/videos related to the above and may use/share them as I see fit, however you reserve the right to ask me to take down any content which features your Website. You must do so in writing and allow me at least 7 days to take down the content.
- I am not your employee and you do not pay me benefits. Because of this, I am not at your “beck and call”. I have 25+ members that I work with, all of whom need my undivided attention for their time each month. It is not fair to the other members to expect me to act as your employee or personal assistant.
- While there are few limitations to what I will do on the membership time, I reserve the right to deny requests. For example, I do not do social media and I do not do data-entry. When I receive requests like these, I will almost always refer you to someone who can better assist you.
- When your membership ends, either through cancellation, failure of payment, or otherwise, the following happens:
- Site updates are no longer performed by me.
- Site backups are no longer performed by me, and will be removed from my system.
- After a short optional grace-period, any third-party contractors will have their access revoked from your site.
- Your access to any membership sites included with your plan will be revoked. You may not attempt to re-access or re-distribute the materials contained within the membership site.
- I will continue to provide some basic Email support (within reason, which will be determined by me) – however any on-site changes, substantial consultation time, or what would otherwise be considered by most to be professional work will be billed at the standard non-member rate of $197/hour.
- You may re-activate your membership at any time at the discretion of Sky Stover Web Design & Internet Marketing, LLC. Note that I cannot guarantee your previous rates. When you cancel membership, you lose any “grandfather pricing” you may have had, and are subject to the latest offers.
- My Hours are typically Monday thru Thursday from 9 AM to 4 PM. I volunteer on Fridays and do some finish-up work Friday afternoons. I get a lot done during these hours. If you Email me outside of these hours there may be a longer turn-around time.
- Free phone calls are only included in the VIP plan, and all phone calls are to be scheduled at https://stovermagic.youcanbook.me. I will occasionally respond to text, but if you want me to remember to get something done it needs to be requested via Email.
- YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES:
- It is 100% your responsibility to provide me with tasks to complete. I am not a mind-reader (any more!) and I cannot just “guess” that you want something done.
- It is 100% your responsibility to provide tasks in a timely manner. I pride myself on my turnaround time, but because of the nature of this program I have a lot of tasks to get done in a given week. That means that if you have a launch coming up in 2 weeks it’s probably too late to start doing anything about it. Smaller tasks have a quicker turnaround time (often within 48 hours).
- It is 100% your responsibility to check that the work is error free. I am human and do make mistakes and overlook things occasionally. If there are errors found, I will do my best to rectify the situation. This does not mean that everything is going to be fixed for free or “off the clock”.
- IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The nature of any program such as this is that I will be working closely with you and your Website to hopefully make it better and improve your business. I hope it goes without saying that you know your business best. I am human, and therefore my advice and IT support should never be considered error-free. Any advice I give you should be carefully considered before taking action on or authorizing. I take absolutely zero responsibility for any damages, breaches, or losses (financial, personal, or otherwise). I am also not a lawyer and am not authorized to give professional legal advice. Any suggestions I make should be carefully considered with your legal and tax professionals.
12. Entire Agreement.
These Terms, including any legal notices and disclaimers contained on this Website, constitute the entire agreement between Sky Stover Web Design & Internet Marketing, LLC and you in relation to your use of this Website, and supersede all prior agreements and understandings with respect to the same.
13. Governing Law & Jurisdiction.
These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Pennsylvania, and you submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Pennsylvania for the resolution of any disputes.
