Welcome to SourceSEM.com (“SourceSEM” or “Site”) website, graphic design, SEO, SEM, Social Media and other marketing services. We’re glad you chose us, and we wanted to let you know about these terms as they govern your use of the Site and the services we offer. Before you place an order, we require that you agree to these Terms of Service (“Terms” or “Agreement”).
For the purpose of these Terms of Service, the words “we,” “us," refer to SourceSEM.com. “You” means you, the person who is reading these Terms of Service. “Site” and “SourceSEM.com” refer to our website, https://www.SourceSEM.com.
2. ORDERS AND PAYMENT
When placing an order on SourceSEM.com you will be required to communicate certain information, and in doing so you agree to only provide truthful and accurate information. Once you describe your project and/or fill out your order form we may directly send you an invoice for the cost of the work, of which we will require payment in full before beginning any project. We are not liable if you fail to make any payment, whether or not we have sent an invoice for a project. All pricing on our site or in an invoice is subject to change at any time. If any additional work is requested, or if there are requests for modifications that are in excess of the norm, which SourceSEM reserves the right to determine, then you shall be liable for any amounts incurred at SourceSEM’s normal hourly rate or at a rate/fee agreed upon by both parties.
We reserve the right to cancel or modify any invoice or order, whether or not it has already been paid for, and for any reason. For example, some people may place an order and wait several days/weeks/months before making payment during which time we have raised our prices. If that happens you will be responsible for any increases in price and must pay that amount in full before we will begin work. This is merely an example, and does not include all the scenarios in which we may modify or terminate an order.
By placing an order you agree to pay for the services you requested, and that your credit card or other payment method will be honored. Although we may provide credit terms to certain people, we reserve the right to demand payment in full at any time. We retain any and all copyrights in any work we have done, and will not release or assign any interest in the intellectual property rights until we have been paid in full. We reserve the right to take any and all available actions against you, or others, for your failure to pay the amounts in full including, but not limited to, sending cease and desist notices, DMCA takedowns, or filing injunctions to protect our rights.
Once you have made payment or if we have extended credit to you once we have begun work, we are under no obligation to provide a refund and you remain responsible for any and all outstanding payments.
