If payment is under dispute for longer than 10 days, CLIENT must make arrangements to smoothly transition account management to another firm or manage the campaign in-house. If no such arrangement has been made within 30 days of the original invoice, INTERACTIVE LIMITED may cease all work under this agreement.

Interest shall accrue on unpaid balances after 30 days and shall accrue at the maximum rate allowed by law or 1% per month whichever is less.

Article 5 – Intellectual Property, Copyright & Use of Human Resources

The CLIENT warrants that they are legally entitled to use, and saves INTERACTIVE LIMITED harmless regarding, all marketing and design materials provided to INTERACTIVE LIMITED by the CLIENT during the course of this agreement.

BOTH PARTIES agree and understand that both parties derive considerable value from their employees and subcontractors. Both parties agree not to independently contract or employ the other party’s employees or subcontractors for at least one year from the termination of the contract and no time during the course of the contract. Both parties agree that such a use of either party’s employees/subs would produce substantial financial harm to either party.

Article 6 – Indemnification and Access

CLIENT shall indemnify and save harmless INTERACTIVE LIMITED and INTERACTIVE LIMITED’s directors, officers, employees, agents and assigns from and against all claims, actions, obligations, liabilities, damages, losses and judgments, including any incidental costs and expenses, arising out of or attributed, directly or indirectly, to the services or products offered in the marketing campaigns created and or managed by INTERACTIVE LIMITED.

The CLIENT is responsible for and holds INTERACTIVE LIMITED blameless for, the content, trademarks and other aspects of the website that are related to the CLIENT’s business, industry, and competitors that are supplied by CLIENT.

Advertising Materials, Passwords & Alterations: CLIENT shall review all materials and alterations made to their campaigns and websites by or at the direction of INTERACTIVE LIMITED. CLIENT is responsible for ensuring that all website and advertising content are legally and ethically permitted.

Backups: The CLIENT acknowledges that backups are a critical business function and that it is the exclusive responsibility of the CLIENT to backup any and all materials that are critical to business function. These backups should include: All website content, Pay Per Click campaigns established before turning the account over to INTERACTIVE LIMITED, DNS, and other server settings, etc. Google AdWords and Bing AdCenter provide downloadable backups. If CLIENT requests full backups for Google AdWords, Bing AdCenter or any other search engines prior to the start of the campaign this must be done in writing and INTERACTIVE LIMITED will obtain backups and forward them to CLIENT for an additional fee of 150 dollars. If these backups are not requested prior to the start of the campaign, the CLIENT forever waives any demands or cause for damages against INTERACTIVE LIMITED for failing to provide such a backup. If client needs website backups, these are available from 3rd party services such as CodeGuard. INTERACTIVE LIMITED will provide reasonable assistance to set up such third party services for the CLIENT, but does not itself provide these services unless backup service is specifically mentioned as being part of our services provided in the terms of this or any other agreement in writing or via email correspondence.

Domain Name Registrations: Domain names can be lost if registrations are not maintained. The re-registration of all domains owned or used by the CLIENT is the sole responsibility of the CLIENT, regardless of when or how the domains were originally registered. Even if these domains are kept in INTERACTIVE LIMITED accounts and are maintained by INTERACTIVE LIMITED, domain registrations should be monitored by the CLIENT for accurate registration information so that CLIENT will be alerted if domains are expiring.

Black Listing and Penalties: Google and other search engines, from time to time, blacklist or penalize websites without any notice, or explanation. Appeals to search engines to remove penalties do not guarantee any remedy, review or reconsideration of the penalties. Because there is no official notification of penalties, there is often no way to determine the cause of the penalty. It is the CLIENT’s responsibility to inquire about, understand and bear the risks of all strategies employed by INTERACTIVE LIMITED. INTERACTIVE LIMITED cannot be held responsible for decisions made by third-party search engines or listing services. This also applies to Pay Per Click Advertising such as AdWords, where penalties are also applied without clear and specific explanations and customer support calls and emails often result in days of waiting and no clear resolution. To avoid PPC penalties all landing pages should have substantial content, and should also have clear navigation links to a deep site with more detailed information about the CLIENT’s business.

CLIENT is responsible for generating and posting a privacy policy on their website and is responsible for following that policy. CLIENT is also responsible for maintaining adequate contact information on their site with phone number and address clearly displayed. Client should provide a transparent explanation of the purpose for collecting any visitor data. In accordance with US federal law, any emails sent to prospects should have contact information and should clearly indicate that the intent of the email is to solicit business. All emails are also required by law to include an opt-out option that removes recipients from all future unsolicited emails.

CLIENT is responsible for complying with all laws governing the jurisdictions they operate in. These laws can prohibit the use methods allowed in the US or laws can require special notices to be posted to visitors upon entering a website or can require special notices to be posted in privacy policies or may require special requirements for data security or disclosures depending upon the business the client conducts. We can help the CLIENT comply with laws for a fee, but the CLIENT is fully responsible for any violations and is responsible for checking to ensure that their websites and forms are fully compliant with local laws at all times by conducting monthly checks on their own and documenting such checks. It is possible for compliance features of a website to be deleted or disabled by regular website updates and it is not the responsibility of Interactive Limited to check for compliance on a regular basis. CLIENT fully indemnifies Interactive Limited against any claims resulting from failures to comply with local laws governing the operation or security or privacy policies of CLIENT’s website, forms, data collection, payment systems, or tracking methods.

The CLIENT may need to provide additional relevant text content in electronic format for the purpose of creating additional web pages or increasing the content on existing ones.

The CLIENT is responsible for testing forms, phone numbers and chat software on their site on a regular basis to ensure prospect can contact them. Forms, phone numbers, and chat may fail for various reasons. Although Interactive Limited may test CLIENT’s forms periodically, Interactive Limited cannot fully test whether or not chat or form submissions are reaching the client. Therefore the CLIENT must test their own forms, chat and phone numbers on at least a monthly basis and notify Interactive Limited of any failures immediately.
