TERMS RELATED TO FEES, PRICING AND BILLING
Some products and services available through or in connection with SERVICES require that YOU purchase a account or otherwise pay a fee. YOU are solely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of any use of YOUR SERVICES account by YOU or anyone else using YOUR account. StoreFront.net reserves the right to modify the fees charged for SERVICES products and services from time to time, provided that such new fees shall not take effect earlier than thirty (30) days after StoreFront.net notifies YOU via email or otherwise of such modified fees.
Prices for all Products exclude all applicable taxes and telecommunication charges, unless expressly stated otherwise. To the extent permissible by law, YOU agree to be responsible for any applicable taxes and telecommunication charges, whether or not such amounts are itemized on YOUR Online Statement or charged to YOUR Billing Account or Payment Method.
The price on YOUR SERVICES Checkout page for products, services and items obtained through the SERVICES (the “Products”) reflects the most recent price displayed on the item’s product detail page. Please note that this price may differ from the price shown for the Product when YOU first placed it in SERVICES Checkout (e.g. YOU place an item in the SERVICES checkout, but YOU waited several days before submitting the order and the price changed between placing the item in SERVICES checkout and submitting the order). We cannot confirm the price of a Product until YOU submit YOUR order; however, we do NOT charge YOUR Billing Account until YOUR order completes the SERVICES Checkout process. Despite our best efforts, a small number of Product items may be mis-priced or the offer has expired and the following will apply:
1. If a Product’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge YOU the lower amount.
2 If a Product’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact YOU for instructions or cancel YOUR order and notify YOU of such cancellation.
CHARGES ON YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT
StoreFront.net bills YOU through an online account (YOUR “Billing Account”) for Products. YOU agree to pay StoreFront.net all charges at the prices then in effect for any Products ordered by YOU or other persons (including YOUR agents) using YOUR Billing Account, and YOU authorize StoreFront.net to charge YOUR chosen payment method (YOUR “Payment Method”) for such Products. YOU agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. Charges on YOUR Billing Account will be summarized for YOU online (YOUR “Online Statement”). YOU will have one Online Statement per Billing Account. StoreFront.net reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE PRODUCTS ORDERED. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY StoreFront.net IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE StoreFront.net ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT StoreFront.net MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY PRODUCT PROVIDED UNDER YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR ACCOUNT FOR SUCH PRODUCT (CONFIRMED IN WRITING UPON REQUEST).
Currency exchange settlements will be based on YOUR Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between YOU and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of YOUR chosen Payment Method (the “Payment Method Provider”). If StoreFront.net does not receive payment from YOUR Payment Method Provider, YOU agree to pay all amounts due on YOUR Billing Account upon demand. If the amount to be charged to YOUR Billing Account varies from the amount YOU preauthorized, YOU have the right to receive, and StoreFront.net shall so provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge at least 10 days before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement YOU have with the Payment Method Provider will govern YOUR use of YOUR Payment Method. YOU agree that StoreFront.net may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
StoreFront.net MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (CONFIRMED IN WRITING UPON REQUEST) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE StoreFront.net REASONABLY COULD ACT. TO TERMINATE YOUR AUTHORIZATION, GO TO http://support.storefront.net/customerservice/.
YOUR non-termination or continued use of the Products on YOUR Billing Account reaffirms that StoreFront.net is authorized to charge YOUR Payment Method. StoreFront.net may submit those charges for payment and YOU will be responsible for such charges. Those submissions will not waive StoreFront.net’s right to seek payment directly from YOU. YOUR charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when YOU initially ordered the applicable Product.
All SERVICES sold as “12 Month Plans”, including but not limited to PowerOn and PowerUp dedicated hosting solutions, require a 12 month commitment. YOU agree that if you subscribe to these services, cancellation prior to the 13th Month will result in YOU being billed for any remaining months in your 12 month contract. YOU agree to accept these charges.
YOUR Online Statement will be available monthly. Subject to applicable law, YOU agree that the Online Statement is the only statement of YOUR Billing Account that StoreFront.net needs to provide to YOU. YOU ALSO AGREE THAT IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PRINT OR STORE A COPY OF YOUR ONLINE STATEMENT AND TO RETAIN THIS COPY FOR YOUR RECORDS. While YOU may request a paper copy of YOUR Online Statement, YOU will be charged a retrieval fee.
StoreFront.net will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any technical failures relating to an Online Statement within a reasonable time; however, YOUR inability to view an Online Statement does not extend, or relieve YOU of, YOUR obligation to pay any amounts owing to StoreFront.net. Unless YOU notify StoreFront.net of any error within 120 days after it first appears in any Online Statement, such statement will be deemed accepted by YOU for all purposes, including resolution of inquiries made by YOUR Payment Method Provider. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU RELEASE StoreFront.net FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY AND CLAIMS OF LOSS RESULTING FROM ANY ERROR THAT IS NOT REPORTED TO StoreFront.net WITHIN 120 DAYS AFTER THE ERROR FIRST APPEARS ON YOUR ONLINE STATEMENT.
DUE DATE; LATE CHARGE; COLLECTION COSTS
If StoreFront.net does not receive payment for any charge to YOUR Billing Account, YOU will be in default and StoreFront.net may suspend or cancel YOUR Billing Account and YOUR access to any or all StoreFront.net Products. If YOUR Payment Method Provider seeks return of payments previously made to StoreFront.net, but StoreFront.net in good faith believes that YOU are liable for the charge and applicable law allows the Payment Method Provider to seek payment from YOU, YOU will also be in default and StoreFront.net may cancel YOUR Billing Account and YOUR access to any or all Products. CANCELLATION OR SUSPENSION FOR DEFAULT MAY BE MADE WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE TO YOU AND UPON SUCH CANCELLATION OR SUSPENSION, StoreFront.net MAY STOP DELIVERY OF ANY PRODUCT, AND ANY INFORMATION YOU HAVE STORED ON A StoreFront.net SERVICE MAY NOT BE RETRIEVED AT A LATER DATE.
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
StoreFront software is eligible for a full refund if requested within 30 days from the date the software is delivered, either digital or hard copy. However, StoreFront software that includes the application source code, StoreFront 6 XE and StoreFront Enterprise Editions for example, are not eligible for refund due to the intellectual property exposed. Many StoreFront products include one month of hosting and a consultation with an e-business consultant. See the section below for more information on services refunds.
Refunds for unused professional services, minus a 20% administrative fee, are provided if requested within 30 days of the order date.

Recurring services can be cancelled with 10 business days notice. No refunds will be provided for recurring hosting, marketing, or payment services, including any pre-paid annual service plans.
Note: Any products and services purchased through StoreFront Partners, retailers or distributors, are not eligible. Products and services resold by StoreFront may be subject to the cancellation and refund policies set forth by the vendor.
To request a refund or service cancellation, please complete the online Refund Request Form. A request is not official until the form has been completed. A verbal or e-mail request will not be considered a refund request. If any refund is due, a StoreFront Return Materials Authorization (RMA) will be issued and the refund will be processed within four to six weeks of receipt of the completed RMA.
Failure to respond to any StoreFront inquiry within 5 business days will result in the project being placed in an ON HOLD status. Projects that are on hold for more than 2 weeks or 10 business days will require a reactivation fee of 15% of the project total and will be re-scheduled as current workload permits. StoreFront reserves the right to reprice ON HOLD projects at the current published rate. Projects that are marked ON HOLD will be considered COMPLETE after 90 days. All technical services and design projects EXPIRE within 6 months from date of purchase or in accordance with other project terms set forth at time of sell; whichever is greater.
YOU represent and warrant that YOU are an individual (or in the case of an entity, an agent of the entity) authorized to use the designated Payment Method. YOU agree to pay for all charges (including charges by other persons) and to comply with YOUR responsibilities and obligations as stated in these Terms of Service. If YOU are an agent of an entity user, YOU represent and warrant that YOU are duly authorized to legally bind the entity to all terms and conditions of these Terms of Service and that YOU have made the entity aware of them.

Part II: StoreFront.net Hosting Acceptable Use Policy
StoreFront.net maintains the right to take action to correct or relieve any issues arising from the abnormal use or unlawful use of the hosting and co-location facilities. In most cases, StoreFront.net will make or attempt to make documented contact with the offending customer prior to taking corrective action. In the case of customer-sourced network attacks, StoreFront.net reserves the right to disable the customer’s network access, therefore protecting the overall network, prior to customer contact.
StoreFront.net provides the services listed herein for the service of legitimate business customers, and will not tolerate or allow the following activities:
Delivery of or storage of pornography or pornographic materials in any media format
Delivery of or storage of any non-corporate use or pirated software or other media
Delivery of or storage of any copyrighted or licensed materials which the customer cannot readily (1 business day) produce “right to distribute” documentation for
Delivery of or servicing of any business activities related to Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE), otherwise known as Spam
Performance of or tolerance of (through failure to correct or direct facilitation) unlawful or unruly internet activity (“Hacking”), including denial of service, port scanning (without prior permission of StoreFront.net), or other attacks
Facilitation, Delivery, or participation in any illegal online activity
Delivery of or storage of non-traditional business web content such as hate sites or other blatantly controversial materials (e.g. pictures of Princess Diana’s car crash)
StoreFront.net has formed its own Computer Security Intrusion Response Team (CSIRT) to respond to perceived and/or real threats to StoreFront.net Hosting and Colocation facilities and customers as well as investigate any violations of this Acceptable Use Policy. As a user of StoreFront.net services, you and your organization agree to willing and forthrightly cooperate with any CSIRT investigation; responding promptly to CSIRT inquiries and recommendations.
Acceptable Use Termination
StoreFront.net maintains the right to permanently disable the facilities of any customer violating the above terms on a repeat basis, any customer who refuses to take corrective action after repeat warnings from StoreFront.net, or who refuses to implement CSIRT non-personnel related recommendations. In the event of such termination, StoreFront.net shall hold the customers assets until such time as a settlement is reached concerning any remaining payments due on the term contract. In short, don’t violate the above (AUP).
StoreFront’s work is guaranteed to work in most modern browsers – and to be more precise, by default we support the following browsers:
- Internet Explorer 7
- Internet Explorer 6 (to the point when the site is usable and functional)
- Firefox on Windows and OS X
If your project requires more thorough support of older and outdated browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer 6), also if the project relies on a single browser as a requirement (i.e. Safari) it would be highly appreciated from our side if that is noted before the beginning of the development.
