Standard Terms & Conditions to Webdify Customer Contract
Arca Interactive, LLC. dba Webdify (“Company”) hereby agrees to provide the Client services that were outlined in the Customer Contract (“Services”). All terms that are capitalized in this agreement, without prior definition, will have meanings in the Customer Contract. If there are any conflicts between the terms and conditions outlined herein and the Customer Contract, the Customer Contract will take precedence. Together, the Standard Terms and Conditions and the Customer Contract make up the “Agreement.”
Monthly Fees, Add-Ons, hardware charges, and any other charges or fees rendered by the Client are defined herein as the “Fees.” The Client is responsible for paying all Fees, as well as applicable sales and use tax for any Services. Unless otherwise specified, all Fees will be due prior to the start of Services. The Agreement term begins with the implementation of the Customer Contract. On this date, the Client will be responsible for the Add-On fee and the first Monthly Fee. If the Client chooses to prepay their Monthly Fees and/or their recurring Add-Ons, the prepayments will be due at the implementation of this Customer Contract. Monthly Fees will henceforth be due in advance of each calendar month. For example, if a Client’s Customer Contract is dated on the 10th of one month, then the first Monthly Fee and Add-On Fee will be due the 10th of that month, and each Monthly Fee and Add-On Fee will be due on the 10th of each month thereafter. On the other hand, if the Client elects prepayment, those Fees will be due at the signing of the Customer Contract. The Company will begin the commencement of the products (“Licensed Products”) in a manner ordered by the Client and within the specifications of the Customer Contract, upon receipt of applicable Fees. Any balance that is not paid within 30 days of the due date will have an interest charge of 1.5% added to the balance, or the maximum amount allowed by local law. Additionally, the Customer will be financially liable for all fees incurred by the Company due to bounced checks, chargebacks, insufficient funds fees, or overdrafts.
3. Production and Fulfillment.
Production of your Licensed Product will begin upon receipt of any applicable Fees. Included in each purchase are two revisions of your Website, before the official launch. Revisions and Website Edits are limited to Company policies and procedures. Should the Client request additional revisions, edits, or changes that fall outside of Company’s standard procedures or fulfillment practices, the Client may be subject to additional fees as follows: $200/hr for all services that fall outside of standard company operating procedure, and $75/hr for additional website edits and revisions.
Client Cooperation. By signing these Terms and Conditions, the Client hereby agrees to respond to Company requests in a timely manner. Any delays in response may affect the timely delivery or quality of the Licensed Products. If the Company does not hear feedback from a Client about a Licensed Product within 3 business days, the Licensed Product will be deemed acceptable. If the Client fails to respond to the Company repeatedly during the production and fulfillment process, then the Company reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and hold no further obligation to the Client. In addition, the Client will have no right of refund to the Fees.
4. Licensed Rights; Aftercare.
Granting of License. Assuming that the Client has paid all applicable Fees, and as long as Client makes all timely payments of recurring Fees, the Company grants the Client non-exclusive use of Product (The “License”) to use the product throughout the world. When the Client terminates the Agreement, assuming they have paid all applicable fees and satisfied the minimum Agreement Term, then the Company will grant the Client a license to use the photos and videos throughout the world in perpetuity. On the other hand, the client will not have rights to the source code for the Licensed Products, which includes, but is not limited to, the Website. The Client agrees that, with the exception of content provided by the Client to the Company, all intellectual property elements and rights displayed on the Licensed Product (together herein referred to as the “Company IP”) are the sole property of the Company. Examples include, but are not limited to: templates, design elements, images, scripts, sound tracks, story lines, source code, object code, music, video, still photos created or owned by the Company, search engines, Java applets, mobile application functionality, and ActiveX controls.
In the event that a Client incorporates their own materials into any Licensed Product, this will in no way affect the Company’s ownership of the Licensed Products. Additionally, the Company will not combine Client ownership of its materials, nor will the Client deprive the Company of its intellectual property ownership. The Company and Client will maintain separate copyright ownership. The Company also reserves the right to use the Company IP in any manner it sees fit, pursuant with the Client License to use the Licensed Products. The Client does not reserve the right to use the Company IP, except as part of the Licensed Product as a whole. In other words, the Client is not permitted to have separate rights to the components or source code of the Licensed Product, except in connection to the whole. In signing this Agreement, the Client agrees not to reverse engineer source code or any other section of the Licensed Product, or allow others to use the Licensed Product in any way except for those specifically laid out herein. In signing this Agreement, the Client also agrees the Company is permitted to use the Licensed Product, which includes but is not limited to content provided by the Client for the Company’s promotional purposes. Lastly, the Client agrees that the Company is permitted to include its logo and other information on the Client Website, Licensed Product, or Video, based on the Company’s exclusive discretion.
Aftercare. If the Client is entitled to Aftercare, these services will be limited to basic modifications or services which may be rendered by the Webdify team. Aftercare is defined as: time consulting with the WEBDIFY TEAM, as well as the WEBDIFY TEAM’s time spent on the following: changing photos, text modifications, site functionality, and similar services. Aftercare does not pertain to the creation of new webpages or any other Content on the Website, including design work, Photoshopping, or any other creative editing. Any Aftercare that is used in a Customer Contract does not accumulate month-to-month or roll over. If the Client requires Aftercare Services in excess of those outlined in the Customer Contract, those will be charged to the Client at a rate of $75/hr.
5. Legal Disclaimers.
The Client will be responsible for providing timely notification to the Company for any copyright, disclaimers, or applicable legal notices that the Client requires for inclusion in the Licensed Product.

11. Other Terms
The Company acts solely as an independent contractor and is not an agent, partner, or employee of the Client. In the event that approval, acceptance, agreement, or consent by either party is required by any provision of this Agreement, the action will not be unreasonably withheld nor delayed. If any provision, term, condition, or pledge of this Agreement is held by a court of applicable jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, then the remainder of the provisions outlined herein remain in effect, nor will they be in any way invalidated. A waiver by either the Company or the Client of any of the agreements, conditions, or pledges to be performed will not be tantamount to a waiver of any successive breach of any other condition or provision outlined herein.

The Client may not consign this Agreement without written consent from the Company.
By signing this Agreement, the Client recognizes and agrees that the Company may suffer great harm from the misuse or abuse of the Licensed Product or its Company IP.

The Customer Contract and the Standard Terms of Agreement, including all Exhibits (the “Agreement”) establish the entire agreement between the two parties outlined herein. This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements or representations between the two parties, with respect to the Services and Licensed Product. The Client will not depend on any warranties or guarantees that are not expressly outlined in this Agreement. No change or waiver will be valid unless it is in writing and signed by both parties.
On occasion, the Company may adjust its business practices or modify these Standard Terms and Conditions. Any revisions to the Standard Terms and Conditions will be posted on the Company Website and/or provided to the Client. The Client agrees to maintain an operational email address and the Client also agrees that any correspondence sent by the Company to the Client at the provided email address will be deemed satisfactorily delivered.

The Client reserves the right to opt out of such correspondence in the future. Additionally, the Client will be responsible for any attorney’s fees if the Company takes legal action to enforce the Agreement and its updated terms. The laws of the state of New York govern this agreement. If any dispute or claim arises out of the Agreement, both Client and Company agree to arbitrate the dispute before a single arbitrator agreed upon by both parties, under the patronage of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS). If neither party is willing to agree upon an arbitrator, then both parties authorize JAMS to designate one. All arbitration will take place at the JAMS office closest to San Diego, New York, and the arbitrator shall apply New York law to the ruling. The arbitrator’s ruling shall be final and not subject to appeal.
Should arbitration become necessary, the winning party will have its costs, including attorney’s fees, paid by the other party. Any legal action or resolution will be individual in nature, and neither party shall pursue a class or representative action unless both the Client and the Company agree to do so in writing. The terms and conditions outlined in this Agreement may not be modified or amended in any manner, except those laid out in this Section or by writing signed by an officer of the Company.

Exhibit A – Service Level Agreement
This Exhibit A is subject to the preceding terms and conditions and is therefore incorporated to the Agreement. The terms of Exhibit A shall take precedence if there is a conflict within the terms of this Agreement.
1. Service Level Agreement (SLA). The hosting of the Website (henceforth referred to as “Hosting Services”) by the Company will include Performance Standards, outlined below. Failure to meet the Performance Standards will result in a credit to the client, pursuant to Section 3 below.
2. Performance Standards. During the Agreement term, the Company will provide Hosting Uptime at a rate of 99.8%. Hosting uptime will be calculated by the Company on a monthly basis. Hosting Uptime excludes the following circumstances:
- Scheduled, periodic maintenance of the site by the Company
- Changes to the Services or Licensed Product, as requested by the Client
- Errors caused by the Client, such as those from custom coding
- Outages that don’t affect the Website’s appearance, but only access to certain aspects such as email
- Causes that are not reasonably foreseeable or out of Company Control
- Issues with the Client domain registrar
- Suspension of any Services by the Company as the result of the terms of this Agreement, and
- Outages related to the reliability of programming environs.
3. Remedies For Performance Standards and Website Downtime
a. In the event that the Client requests an account credit and the Company asserts that it has failed to meet Performance Standards, then the company will grant the Client a credit that will be applied to the next Monthly Fee or invoice for Hosting Services as outlined in this Agreement. This will be equal to 5% of the recurring Monthly Fee.
b. Any claims for credit must be initiated by the Client within 30 days after the alleged failure to meet the Performance Standards. These requests must be made to the Company’s customer support line via email or any other mutually agreed upon methods. Claims made after the 30 day timeframe will not be eligible for any refunds, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and this Exhibit.
c. Any Client credit will only apply to hosting services, and shall not apply to any other Service rendered by the Company. Under the terms of this Exhibit, the Client’s account will not be credited more than once per month. In the event of a failure to meet the Performance Standards, the Client’s sole remedy, as well as the Company’s sole liability, will be to receive a credit pursuant to the terms outlined in Section 3 of this Exhibit.
