Attempting to create campaigns that have the intention of negatively affecting a website’s position in the major search engine results pages (“negative SEO”), as deemed solely by PadukaConsultants.
5. LEGAL MARKETING ISSUES.
PadukaConsultants is intended to assist the process of ethical website promotion by providing quality services. However, since laws vary from region to region, it is impossible for PadukaConsultants to warrant that this process will comply with the local marketing and legal regulations where you reside – specifically in terms of what you are promoting, and the content used to create your site and your promotions. (For example, most countries tightly govern any marketing material connected with financial services, investments, and so on). Therefore it is entirely your responsibility to conduct due diligence to ensure that the sites you are creating comply with all applicable laws in your country, province or state.
PadukaConsultants hereby disclaims all representations, claims and warranties regarding the legality of using the service or some/all of its features with respect to internet laws & marketing regulations where you reside.
The user (you) accepts comprehensive responsibility for the usage of PadukaConsultants and the sites you promote with our services. it is the user’s sole responsibility to ensure the legality of their publishing & marketing activities.
6. ABUSE AND MISUSE.
If PadukaConsultants suspects that our service is being used for illegal purposes or spamming, we will contact any pertinent law enforcement agencies (as appropriate) and will provide them with any user/client information needed for the aforementioned party to conduct an official investigation. You consent to the provision of this information for any such event. You further agree to fully cooperate and, if necessary, provide assistance with all internal monitoring and investigations of our client base and the operations of our website.
7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.
Many of the supplied functions of PadukaConsultants use third-party data (or a custom variation thereof) and/or rely on third-party services, where PadukaConsultants has no control over the ongoing performance, accuracy or usability of these features or services.
PadukaConsultants hereby disclaims all representations, claims and warranties regarding the performance of the application/site and the accuracy, currency, or completeness of the information, including (without limitation) all warranties of merchantability or suitability for any given purpose.
Furthermore, under no circumstances shall PadukaConsultants be liable to you (the end user) for any damages whatsoever, including (without limitation) any direct, special, incidental, exemplary or consequential damages, lost profits, or any other claims of yours or third parties, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
You, the end user, assume all risks and potential damages (known or unknown) associated with using PadukaConsultants and/or the services offered at PadukaConsultants in every capacity.
8. ENDING THE SERVICE:
8.1 TERMINATION. PadukaConsultants may cancel any member account at any time and restrict access (upon canceling the payment contract as well), without notice or stated reason. Obviously, this will generally only occur in cases of member abuse in accordance with our restrictions policy, but we do still reserve the right to terminate any user account without notice, for any reason we deem suitable. In the case of abuse or violations of this user agreement, any remaining Loyalty credit balance will also be forfeited.
8.2 CANCELLATION. Members can cancel their account at any time by contacting PadukaConsultants via the support page and requesting cancellation. However, before requesting cancellation, users should be sure to spend their remaining Loyalty credit balances, as cancelling an account also forfeits any remaining balance – and cancelled accounts are NOT able to be reactivated. If users wish to simply become inactive, and essentially pause an account – it makes more sense to simply spend out remaining Loyalty credits.
8.3 REFUNDS. Services are paid for, in advance, with the understanding that they are a non refundable purchase. Generally, we DO NOT offer or provide refunds, since we state clearly across our website and on the order form that all purchases are non refundable. Therefore, the only exceptions where we will process refunds are:
In the case of unauthorized or fraudulent access to your PayPal© account or credit card, given adequate proof or evidence, as deemed adequate solely by PadukaConsultants and where our staff has not yet started to work on it. You may also need to contact your payment account / credit card company as well, to ensure that your account is secure. Please note that we reserve the right to submit your claim to the relevant authorities if we are suspicious about the validity of your claim.
* Other similar scenarios, on a case by case (discretionary) basis and within reason. Our goal is to earn your long-term business, and we realize that sometimes, things go awry. So in legitimate cases and where we deem reasonable, campaigns that you have already purchased but work on which has not started can be refunded on request, and at the sole discretion of PadukaConsultants.
Please note that in the case of discretionary refunds that are not the result of unauthorized/fraudulent access to your PayPal© account or credit card, there will be a 25% administration fee applied to the amount refunded.
You agree that you shall indemnify and hold harmless PadukaConsultants, its directors, affiliates, employees and agents against any and all direct or indirect losses, claims, demands, expenses (including attorneys’ fees) or liabilities of any such nature or kind arising out of your use of our site or our service.
We reserve the right to amend, add to or otherwise edit this Terms of Service agreement at any time, without notice.
Furthermore, these restricted practices are specific only to the PadukaConsultants user license. There are many other restricted practices from a legal standpoint (such as proper disclosures, FTC regulations, etc.), which are your sole responsibility to research and apply according to your business location, where your business conducts transactions, and many other applicable factors.
By ordering our service, you agree to the above Terms of Service. You also verify that you have read, and comprehensively understand our Disclaimer.
