FEES AND PAYMENT FOR SERVICES.
3:1 Fees and Auto-Renewal. You agree to pay all fees specified on your accepted Order(s). You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to us and for notifying us of any changes to such information. Except as otherwise specified herein or on an Order, all payment obligations are non-cancelable and all fees paid are non-refundable. You understand and accept that, unless otherwise expressly stated on the applicable Order, our Services are subscriptions services that operate on an auto-renewal basis such that your credit card, debit card, electronic payment, or other method of payment (“Accounts”) will be assessed the specified fees at regular intervals based on your subscription program (e.g. annually, quarterly, monthly). The fees for each renewal term will be equal to the fees for the immediately prior term, unless we notify you at least thirty (30) days prior to such renewal of a change to the fees. You represent and warrant that you have the legal rights to use the Accounts and hereby authorize us to charge your Accounts for all Services listed on the Order(s) for the initial subscription term and each renewal term. Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order.
Refunds for Initial Active Mode Cases (New cases to clear page 1 of Google):
If you are unhappy for any reason without services, you will have the following options:
- Cancel and receive a full refund for the previous 2-weeks of service OR;
- Convert to “maintenance” mode which is 50% of initial fee, this will maintain both the permanent and temporary highly effective back-links that are elevating the positive content OR;
- Extend the current work in the hope results will continue to improve
- Request a non-financial, 100% refund, in the form of services in-kind, which will be for “Social Networking & Reputation Buffer” consulting and assistance. These services are described in detail here.
- (Note: You can actually cancel at any time, without notice, and receive a refund of the last 2-weeks work, no questions asked)
3:3 Refunds for Maintenance Cases (Established cases after page 1 of Google has been cleared):
Once we have cleared the targeted unfavorable results from page 1 of Google, you can
- continue to pay the same subscription in the hope that we can bury the unfavorable result(s) beyond page 2 of Google search results OR;
- at your direction, we will convert the case to “maintenance mode”. The fees for maintenance mode are a little less than 50% of the initial triage case when you first sign up. In maintenance mode you can continue to monitor the results in your dashboard. Should unfavorable results return to page 1 and persist beyond a brief spike appearance, most likely be due to a significant change in the Google search algorithm, then you have the option to:
- Convert the case back into active/triage mode at full price so that we can increase the pressure to further suppress the result.
- Remain in maintenance mode in the hope that the result will return to the lower rank.
- Cancel your subscription effective the next business day after notice
There are no refunds while in maintenance mode. This is because if an unfavorable result returns to page 1 of Google, it is for reasons beyond our control (significant change in the Google algorithm).
3:4 PayPal and Credit/Debit Card Disputes
You agree that you will not under any circumstances initiate a charge-back or dispute through PayPal or your credit/debit card company without first giving page1.me seven days notice to initiate a refund. Notwithstanding, you agree that your only remedy for a refund beyond 14 days of service will be through the arbitration provisions as laid out herein. In plain language, you agree that page1.me is a team of tacticians, not magicians, you agree that third parties have published unfavorable content about you, and may continue to do so, and that you are entering into this agreement after conducting your own independent due diligence into the efficacy of page1.me services, and if you have satisfied yourself of the risks before agreeing to these terms of service.
3:5 Taxes, Late Fees and Penalties. You will be responsible for paying any applicable taxes related to each Order. If any fees due to us are not received by the due date, then we may charge you interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. If the amount owing under any Order is thirty (30) or more days overdue, we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, accelerate your unpaid fee obligations for the then-current term so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend the Services until such amounts are paid in full.
