Juvo Web Terms of Service
This Terms of Service (TOS) is a contract between you and/or your company (you or your) and Juvo Web (Juvo, we, us or our). All clients of Juvo agree to abide by these policies and warrant that they are at least 18 years of age, and that they have the right and authority to bind themselves, or the company that they represent, to the terms of this TOS. This TOS may be modified from time-to-time. All clients of Juvo agree to be bound by these modifications. The most recent version of this TOS can be obtained upon request or on the Juvo website.
While we facilitate your business on the Internet, we are an independent contractor. We only have control of the products and services we provide directly and are not liable for your actions, the actions of our third party service providers, or the actions of individuals who use your products and services (End Users).
Juvo provides a number of services (Services) to its customers.
Juvo provides dedicated, virtual private or shared server computers with an Internet address for storage and access of Content, User Content and/or a Website. Juvo will provide unlimited and unmetered bandwidth and storage as outlined in section 8. If you require additional bandwidth or storage, Juvo will negotiate in good faith to accommodate your needs unless Juvo’s servers cannot accommodate the requested bandwidth or storage.
1.1.1 Website Backup
Juvo will back up the Website in a commercially reasonable manner. However, Juvo is not responsible for lost Content or lost User Content. Website backups will be stored by Juvo for no longer than 14 days. Juvo will provide, at Customer's expense, an electronic copy of the backup Website to Customer upon written request by Customer. Backups are intended for disaster recovery, not the restoration of individual files.
Juvo will take commercially reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized access to the Website, Content, User Content, and Confidential Information stored on Juvo’s systems, but will not be responsible for any loss due to unauthorized access.
1.1.3 Server/Network Computer Outages
Juvo will employ best efforts in providing you with advance notice of scheduled server computer/ network outages.
Juvo is under no obligation to provide you with any form of administrative system access to the systems hosting your Content, User Content or Website, whether command line or interface is driven, to the server, including but not limited to, FTP and SSH. Juvo will provide access it deems as reasonable, but any such grants may be revoked at Juvo’s discretion.
1.2 Content Management
Juvo provides various content management tools that enable you to update and modify various components of your Website. These tools include, but are not limited to:
- Page content manager
- Photo gallery manager
- Video gallery manager
- Store manager
These tools are either the property of Juvo or are licensed by Juvo and are only made available to you while you are using Juvo systems. Should you decide to move your Content, User Content or Website off of Juvo servers, you do not have the right to take these tools with you.
1.3 Payment Processing
Juvo provides online payment services which collect billing information from End Users and transmits that data to your gateway. Juvo takes all reasonable measures to secure and encrypt that information when transmitting it to the payment gateway. Juvo stores basic transaction information for your reference, but does not store on its systems credit card information or social security numbers.
2. Contact Information
You are required to provide us with accurate information when setting up your account, during the course of our relationship, and when corresponding with us. On occasion, we may need to communicate with you by e-mail about the Services. You agree to maintain a working e-mail address that is monitored daily. We have no responsibility, or liability, for interruptions in the Services, or damages of any sort, based on communications that are misdirected as a result of your failure to provide us with updated contact information.
The “Effective Date” of this TOS will be the day on which we receive payment from you.
This TOS will begin on the Effective Date and continue for the duration of the service term you select and pay for (Initial Term). Typical terms are one month, six months and one year. After the expiration of the Initial Term, this TOS will renew for successive periods of equal length (Renewal Term).
Your invoice is generated at least 10 days prior to its due date. You are responsible for the fees and charges related to all services you have used. All of these are referred to collectively as “Fees.”
Our obligation to provide the Services is contingent on your payment of the Fees by the Due Date without set-off or deduction. Fees may not appear on your invoice immediately after a Service is rendered. Fees will be past due, and your account may be suspended, if we attempt to charge your credit card or are otherwise unable to collect the Fees.
Should your account be suspended for any reason, Fees will continue to accrue. To reinstate your account, you will be required to pay any fees levied on us by our financial institution plus a $25 administrative fee. You must inform us in writing of any Fee disputes at least 5 days before the Due Date.
You have read and agree to the policies outlined in the BILLING POLICY, which is incorporated into this TOS by reference.
4.1 Late Payment
Late Payments are considered late if they are not received within three (3) business days of the due date. After the three business days, the Project will be considered in probation and development will stop immediately. If the payment is more than ten (10) business days past due there will be a 10% late charge for the amount due. If payment is not made within two months, Juvo reserves the right to shut down the site until payment is made. The scheduled payment plus any applicable late fee must be paid before the Project is reinstated.
In addition to all other Fees and amounts due, you shall also pay to Juvo, or reimburse Juvo as appropriate, all amounts due for property tax on the Software and for sales, use, excise taxes or other taxes which are measured directly by payments made by you to Juvo. In no event shall you be obligated to pay any tax paid on the income of Juvo or paid for Juvo's privilege of doing business.
Either party may terminate the Services by providing written notice to the other no later than 25 days from the expiration of the Initial Term or Renewal Term.
We reserve the right to immediately terminate this TOS, and suspend or cancel the Services: (i) for a violation of any of our policies, including those incorporated by reference; and/or (ii) your failure to pay any amounts due. This right of termination is without prejudice to any other rights we may have. You are not entitled to any type of notice or protest should we exercise these rights.
One party may also terminate this TOS upon the occurrence of a material breach, which has not been cured by the other party within 10 days of their receipt of written notice of the breach. For the purposes of defining a material breach, materiality shall be determined from the perspective of a reasonable business person with significant experience in the Internet business. Notices of the material breach must contain sufficient detail for the party against whom the assertion of material breach is directed to identify the breach and attempt to take corrective action.
You may cancel this Agreement at any time by providing written notice to us as provided in the paragraph entitled “Termination.” It is important to note that you will be responsible for all termination charges based on your cancellation and will not be entitled to partial refunds. The fact that you cancel this Agreement does not relieve you of responsibility for these charges. If you have a term agreement with us, we strongly suggest you contact us prior to canceling to determine what your cancellation obligations will be.
7. Money Back Guarantee
Hosting services carry an unconditional 30 day satisfaction guarantee. To cancel your hosting services and receive a refund, you must contact us within 30 days from the Effective Date of the particular Services you wish to cancel. Only your monthly fees are refundable. Set up, domain name registration, SSL Certificate, and other one-time fees are not refundable.
8. Uses of the Services

You agree that we may place restrictions on your use of the Services or customer support services to the extent that they exceed the use of these resources by similarly situated customers.
