Welcome to your Clinic Sites website! The purpose of this agreement is simple: We are not trying to confuse you with difficult legal terms. Instead, we are plainly stating the role of each party, what the website and hosting support entails, payment schedules and what should happen if something were to go wrong.
The terms and conditions set forth in this Website Service Agreement (“Agreement”) constitute the sole agreement between JMP Clinic Sites Inc. (“Clinic Sites”, “we”, or “us”) and you (the “Client”). Client and Clinic Sites are collectively, (the “Parties).2. Acceptance of the Agreement.
By accepting this proposal, you confirm that you have read, and agree to Clinic Sites Inc’s Website Service Agreement and you are authorizing us to publish the completed website to your domain. You further acknowledge that we are providing a license to you to utilize our website management system which exists on our servers.
You agree that we will update your Website from time to time, at our discretion. Your continued use of the Website following the publishing of the updated Agreement means that you accept and agree to the changes.
3. The Website Feature
Clinic Sites agrees to create a website for the Client that exists on our platform. This will allow you to easily create and update website content that is fresh and regularly updated.
We are committed to completing the website in a timely manner and agree to work expeditiously to complete our portion of the website customization upon agreement of this contract.
The Client agrees to complete their portion of the website content and that the website will be launched at the Client’s discretion.
5. Payment of Setup Fees
The Client agrees to pay Clinic Sites the total Setup Fees, plus applicable taxes, within fifteen (15) days from the date of the final invoice. The Setup Fees include the cost of the basic website package and any requested modules. We agree to provide the Client with an invoice detailing the Setup Fees upon acknowledgement of this Agreement.
6. Payment of Ongoing Website Hosting and Support Fees
The hosting and support fee is invoiced monthly at a rate of $39.00 per month, plus applicable taxes. This fee includes phone and email support, website improvements, server maintenance, security maintenance and website hosting, which is reasonably consistent with current average client usage. We agree not to raise this fee more than 5% annually.
The Client agrees that the Hosting and Support subscription will renew automatically at the end of each year and further agrees to pay this subscription fee in advance on a monthly basis. The fees will continue every thirty days and will continue throughout the duration of the Agreement between the Parties.
7. Late Payment
If the balance owing from the Client remains unpaid for more than thirty (30) days, Clinic Sites will issue a written notice of the overdue account.
In the event that the Client fails to pay the balance owing for more than 90 days, Clinic Sites Inc will make every effort to contact the Client by phone or email prior to the suspension of services. Please note that we do, however, reserve the right to suspend the service of the Website Hosting and Support and disable the Client’s website until the account balance is paid in full.
This Agreement includes an ongoing warranty that ensures the website will appear and function in working order for the duration of the Client’s subscription with Clinic Sites. We will make every effort to rectify the situation in a timely fashion when the Client reports errors or performance issues concerning the website.
