Web / ORM / SEO Consulting Terms of Service & Client Expectations

 

Online Reputation Consulting & Search Engine Optimization: We are an ethical “white hat” firm. Our service quality is high and we always work to earn 5 star reviews.  However, all sales are final once the work is started and cannot be reversed or cancelled. We require a 30 day notice for cancellation of month to month consulting engagements.

We reserve the right to cancel any project where a client becomes overbearing or unpleasant.

Website Hosting: We bill for website and blog hosting in one-year increments with notification once per year one month prior to hosting expiration. We generally bill to a client credit card so that work can be easily transitioned back to the client. All sales are final.

Web Design/Programming: Deposits are non-refundable. Ongoing website maintenance projects may be cancelled with adequate notice without penalty.


Refunds:

Clients are required to pay for all billed invoices for work performed. Although a cancellation may be due to the level of satisfaction in a project, final billings for performed work are final and nonrefundable.

No refunds will be made for any work which has been designed, completed and delivered.

Any changes by the client to the originally approved scope specifications are potentially billable at the client’s expense.

Registrar and third party provider delays not in control of Mountain Woods Media, LLC are generally not deemed suitable for refunds.

 

Privacy Policy

Mountain Woods Media, LLC and its network of websites strives to offer its visitors the advantages of Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience. We may use Personally Identifiable Information (your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number) subject to the terms of this privacy policy for use in deliverables, apps or consulting work. We will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorized third party. All consulting arrangements are handled privately and information conformant to client work processes is maintained securely. Our firm is amenable to all N.D.A. (Non Disclosure Agreement) requests.  Please allow adequate review time if you choose to ask us to use your firm’s N.D.A. documents.

 

How we gather information from users

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase. Device software providers where our products are hosted may also ask for you to provide personal information.  You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, our website also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means.  In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

 

What we do with the information we collect

Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising.  We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.

Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways.  For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive).  Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners.  Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.

We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on Mountain Woods Media, LLC sites to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences; our Terms of Service and privacy policy; services and products offered by Mountain Woods Media, LLC and other topics we think you might find of interest.

Personally Identifiable Information collected by Mountain Woods Media, LLC may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of ecommerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will maintain confidentiality and use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

 

Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements

Mountain Woods Media, LLC expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices.  For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a mountainwoodsmedia.com page,  certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party such as Ebay.com or Amazon.com.  Also, through Mountain Woods Media, LLC you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. Mountain Woods Media, LLC is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or linked page operated by a third party.

While on our site, our advertisers, promotional partners or other third parties may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences or retrieve information about you. For example, some of our advertising is served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Other features available on our site may offer services operated by third parties and may use cookies or other technology to gather information. Mountain Woods Media, LLC does not control the use of this technology by third parties or the resulting information, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Mountain Woods Media, LLC and this policy.

If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately.

E-mail Privacy Policy

 

We have created this email privacy policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy and the protection of your information.

How we protect your privacy

We use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of data used by our system.

 

Sharing and Usage

We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information and to contracted service providers for purposes of providing services relating to our communications with you.

 

How can you stop receiving email from us?

Each email sent contains an easy, automated way for you to cease receiving email from us, or to change your expressed interests. If you wish to do this, simply follow the instructions at the end of any email.

If you have received unwanted, unsolicited emails sent via this system or purporting to be sent via this system, please forward a copy of that email with your comments to admin (at) Mountain Woods Media (dot) com  for review.

 

 

Children’s Privacy Policy

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have received personal information on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information from our systems.  Mountain Woods Media, LLC encourages parents to go online with their kids. Here are a few tips to help make a child’s online experience safer:

 

  • Teach kids never to give out personal information, unless supervised by a parent or a responsible adult. This includes name, address, phone, school, etc.
  • Know the sites your children are visiting and which sites are appropriate for children of any age.
  • Look for Web site privacy policies on sites that you visit. Know how your child’s information is treated.

 

Disclaimer Compensation and Affiliate Affidavit

 As per mandates from FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION, 16 CFR Part 255 – Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising, (read the full document here) the purpose of this document is to establish any compensatory affiliation with Mountain Woods Media, LLC websites, testimonials and endorsements found for  companies whose products are being promoted on this site, including but not limited to:

Mountain Woods Media LLC founders and staff are the primary content creators of the array of Mountain Woods Media, LLC website and app content.  As writers of integrity, they put their best effort in writing truthful content and editorial opinion regarding their selected site topics.  However, MWM founders and staff MAY be affiliated with companies whose products are being promoted on the MWM websites.  As a Marketing Affiliate Publisher, Mountain Woods Media, LLC MAY receive compensation for sales or clicks of linked products and services found on these websites.  Any or all endorsements from testimonial companies used in our promotional materials MAY be affiliated with Mountain Woods Media as Marketing Affiliates. They therefore might have an established connection with Mountain Woods Media in the form of commissions paid on sales resulting from referrals from some of those testimonials and endorsers that might lead some readers to believe that the testimonial reviews on the pages of the Mountain Woods Media, LLC websites might be biased.  However, the reviews and comments on the pages of these websites are to the best of our knowledge the true statements and beliefs of the endorsement writers/providers, and any claims made on the pages of these websites can be substantiated upon request to info (at) Mountain Woods Media (dot) com.
