- SERVICE DESCRIPTION: Local One service is a fee based service provided to clients for the purpose of performing specific tasks and functions that are aimed at increasing exposure for the client’s business on various search engines and online directories. Local One services include specifically but are not limited to: Local Online Business Listing Management Services, Organic Search Engine Optimization Services (SEO), Website Design and Hosting Services, Blog Management Services, Social Media Management Services, Pay per Click Management Services, etc. For each and all services provided by Local One, Local One will make various decisions on behalf of and in the best interest of the client including but not limited to: how and when advertisements will be published online, which websites the advertising will be linked to, formats and styles of the advertisements placed, when and where client advertisements are registered and managed, etc. While Local One Advertising Services aim to increase Advertiser exposure on various online mediums and to potential clients, which could produce positive results for the Advertiser, LOCAL ONE NOR ITS AGENTS DO NOT AND CANNOT GUARANTEE ANY SPECIFIC RESULTS AT ANY TIME. Any guarantee either express or implied beyond the guarantee stated within this agreement, is not a guarantee provided by the company to the client. Placement on certain websites and high-ranking placements within those websites are subject to conditions outside of the control of Local One and therefore not guaranteed by Local One. The client understands the sole guarantee of the company to the client is to complete reasonable work within an acceptable time frame in an attempt to positively affect the placement of the business information of the client on various partner websites that are subject to change at any time without notification to the client.
- GENERAL USE OF THE SERVICE: Advertiser shall not use the Service, in whole or in part, for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement. Advertiser agrees that Advertiser will not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, frame in another web page, use on any other Web site or product, transfer, or sell any information, software, lists of users, databases or other lists, products or services provided through or obtained from the Service other than for use as contemplated in any Service, including but not limited to the creation or operation of Advertiser created Web sites and Web listings, (collectively, “Advertiser Site”) in accordance with this Agreement.
- TERM, PAYMENT AND MODIFICATION: The term of this agreement shall begin and become effective as of the advertising start date and may be terminated at any time by either party with reasonable notice. “Local One Advertising Service” is the process by which Local One will market your site through various online methods, websites, portals, directories, relationships, etc. You additionally understand that clicks to your site, including clicks on the search engines, shopping engines, content sites, etc will include keywords you select as well as certain misspellings, singular/plural combinations, and other related search terms that we map to your advertising campaigns. All keyword campaigns will include key terms, titles, descriptions which you have selected and/or Local One has selected on your behalf. You are responsible for the accuracy of such terms, titles, and descriptions. Unless otherwise noted and arranged you are also responsible for the landing page(s), or redirect website which links to your advertisements. You agree that Local One may modify this Agreement and Services from time to time. You agree to be bound by any changes Local One may reasonably make to this Agreement when such changes are made. If you have purchased Services from Local One, the term of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect as long as you take advantage of and use the Services. Unless otherwise noted and mutually agreed to in writing, the minimum term of Service for Local One search engine marketing and advertising services is 6 full calendar months. Upon completion of the 6th month of service, service will continue on a month-to-month basis or until properly canceled by Local One or Advertiser.
- ADVERTISING FEES: Local One reserves the right to charge fees for the Service or any portion thereof. If Advertiser is required to pay a fee for all or any part of the Service for which Advertiser has chosen to register, Advertiser hereby authorizes Local One to charge Advertiser’s valid and current credit or debit card in advance for all applicable fees incurred by Advertiser in connection with Advertiser’s chosen Service and Advertiser’s Account. Fees charged are for services and not anticipated results of the client or guaranteed results by the company or any of its representatives and are therefore non-refundable. In the event that services fall below an acceptable service level as determined by the company, future charges will be suspended; however no refunds will be issued for payments already collected. Advertiser’s Service and Account will automatically renew at the end of each subscription period, unless the Service or Advertiser Account is terminated in advance of the end of the then-current term. If there is any annual, monthly or similar periodic subscription fees associated with the Advertiser Account, these fees will be billed automatically to the Advertiser’s designated valid and current credit or debit card at the start of each renewal period, unless Advertiser terminates the Service before the relevant period begins. If Advertiser registered for the Service using a Local One promotional offer or discount, after the initial promotional period expires, Advertiser’s subscription (base package and any purchased upgrades) will automatically be renewed and billing will continue at the then-current prices for the Service. Advertiser further acknowledges that it is Advertiser’s responsibility to notify Local One of any changes to Advertiser’s credit card and to update Advertiser’s credit card number if Advertiser’s credit card has expired otherwise Advertiser’s access to the Service may be disconnected or interrupted. Upon notice of expiration of a card on file, the company reserves the right to manually adjust the expiration date to a future date and continue charges on the credit card. All fees shall be paid in U.S. dollars. In the event Advertiser has elected to pay Local One by credit card, Advertiser agrees to authorize Local One to charge its credit card for such payments and for any amounts owed under this Agreement. If Local One is unable to collect owed amounts from Advertiser’s credit card, Advertiser shall pay to Local One an insufficient funds fee equal to the greater of ten dollars ($15.00 dollars) or six percent (6%) of the total amount due, and Advertiser will be subject to a late payment charge equal to the greater of fifteen dollars ($15.00) per month or one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month accruing from the invoice date or the maximum amount allowed by applicable law. Local One reserves the right to change any fees (which includes but is not limited to, increasing prices and charging a fee for upgrades and/or a Service for which Local One does not currently charge a fee) at any time, provided, however, that Local One will provide Advertiser with reasonable notice prior to making any fee changes. In addition, Local One will also give Advertiser reasonable notice before any modification to the Service that could adversely impact Advertiser’s Site(s). If Advertiser finds any change to the Service to be unacceptable, Advertiser is free to cancel any part of the Service or Advertiser’s Account at any time, but Local One will not refund in part or in whole, any remaining portion of Advertiser’s prepaid fees when Advertiser cancels any part of the Service or Advertiser’s Account and Advertiser may be charged a cancellation fee. Advertiser agrees to pay Advertiser’s Account balance on time. Advertiser also agrees to pay any taxes, including sales or use taxes, resulting from Advertiser’s use of the Service. Advertiser is responsible and liable for any fees, including attorney and collection fees, that Local One may incur in its efforts to collect any remaining balances due from Advertiser. This Section 5 shall in no way limit any other remedies available to Local One. Advertiser also acknowledges and agrees that Advertiser will be billed for and will pay any outstanding balances if Advertiser cancels Advertiser’s Account or Advertiser’s Account is terminated due to Advertiser’s breach of this Agreement. Advertiser must notify Local One of any billing problems or discrepancies within thirty (30) days after they first appear on Advertiser’s credit card account statement. If Advertiser does not notify Local One within thirty (30) days, Advertiser waives any right to dispute such problems or discrepancies. While we understand that fraudulent charge-backs are rare, we take this issue seriously. Anyone who purchases any product or service from Local One and then attempts to chargeback without first trying to remedy the situation is in violation of Local One Chargeback Policy. Fraudulent or unsubstantiated charge-backs may be turned over to a law enforcement or collection agency. The client agrees that if they violate Local One Chargeback Policy, they will be responsible for all costs and fees associated with disputing the chargeback. These fees include, but are not limited to, the products and services delivered by Local One, time and resources spent on the dispute process to provide facts, research, statements, merchant fees, collection fees and attorney fees.
- TERMINATION/CANCELLATION OF ADVERTISER ACCOUNT: Upon completion of the minimum contract length, either Advertiser or Local One may terminate or cancel Advertiser’s Account (or any part of the Service) at any time, but Local One will not refund in whole or in part, any prepaid fees upon such termination or cancellation. Upon proper termination of services, the company will continue to maintain client-advertising services until payments collected have been fully utilized. Service terminations will not be accepted prior to the completion of any contractual agreements and contract lengths. Advertiser agrees that the Setup fee, initial deposit, subscription fee, and/or service fee (or similar one-time payment depending on the Local One Advertising Service selected by Advertiser) is non-refundable in all circumstances.
Termination by Advertiser. Advertiser may cancel your Advertiser Account or any part of the Service at any time. To cancel your Service, Advertiser must call (800) 282-2434 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org Advertiser will receive a cancellation confirmation via email after Local One processes Advertiser’s cancellation request. Local One reserves the right to collect fees, surcharges or costs incurred before Advertiser cancels Advertiser’s Account in addition to the applicable cancellation fee(s).
Termination by Local One. Local One may terminate Advertiser’s Service or Advertiser’s Account if Local One determines, in Local One’s sole discretion, to discontinue offering the Service.
