Terms of Service
Redmont Media LLC
This Web Design and Web Hosting Agreement (this “Agreement”) also referenced as the Terms of Service (the “TOS”), is between Redmont Media LLC, a LLC formed under the laws of the State of Alabama (Redmont Media LLC) and the person (individual or legal entity) whom purchases Redmont Media LLC’s service and agrees to the Terms of Service during the set up process (the “Order”) incorporating this Agreement by reference (“Customer”). This Agreement governs Customer’s use of Redmont Media LLC’s Web hosting service.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, and contingent on Customer’s satisfaction of Redmont Media LLC’s credit approval requirements, Redmont Media agrees to provide the website design, development, and hosting services described in the Order for the fees stated in the Order.
Customer: You have the authority to enter this term on behalf of yourself, your company or your organization. You will give us everything we need to complete the project as we need it. You will review our work, provide feedback and approve in a timely manner.
Deadlines work two ways:
- Customer will also bound by dates we set together
- Customer agrees to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this agreement
Redmont Media: We have the experience and ability to do everything we have agreed to and we will execute in a professional and timely manner. We will meet every deadline that is set (unless otherwise discussed) and will maintain the confidentiality of all shared information.
We create look-and-feel designs and flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create designs interactively and use predominantly WordPress, WooCommerce, and Elementor so we won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use static visuals to indicate a look-and-feel direction (color, texture and typography.) We call that ‘design atmosphere.’
You will have plenty of opportunities to review our work and provide feedback. We will share our staging website with you and have regular contact. If at any stage you are not happy with the direction our work is taking, you have the right to cancel this agreement. You will not be given any of the work completed unless the agreed term is completed.
We cannot guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we cannot be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you have advised us of them. Finally, if any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed sever-able from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforce-ability of any remaining provisions.
First, you guarantee that all elements of text, images or other artwork you provide are either owned by you, or that you have permission to use them.
Then, when your 12-month term has ended, copyright will be automatically assigned as follows:
You will own the visual elements that we create for this project. We will give you source files and finished files and you should keep them somewhere safe as we are not required to keep a copy. You own all elements of text, images and data you provided, unless someone else owns them.
We would like to show off our work and share what we have learned with other people, so we reserve the right, with your permission, to display and link your project as part of our portfolio and to write about it on websites, in magazine articles and in books.
The initial service term of the Agreement shall begin on the date that Redmont Media LLC receives the first month’s payment from Customer (the “Service Commencement Date”) and shall continue for the number of months stated in the Order (the “Initial Term”). Upon expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for the same length as the Initial Term (each a “Renewal Term”) unless Redmont Media or Customer provides the other with termination notice within 30 days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable. The Initial Term and any Renewal Term may be referred to collectively in this Agreement as the “Term.”
We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly.
(a) Recurring Fees
Renewal notices are emailed seven days before the actual renew date in your account. If you have a credit card on file your card will automatically be charged two days before your renewal notice is due. If your billing method is Paypal you will need to manually pay your invoice every month. All payments submitted for services are non-refundable outside of our 30-day refund policy. Service will be made inactive on accounts that are not paid by the 7th day past due. The term “Account” describes all services provided to a customer as defined by the primary ownership email and physical address. Redmont Media LLC reserves the right to revoke this grace period if a pattern of late payment is observed or if your payment method is listed as other. All orders made with a credit card are expected to work on the monthly renewal date each month. Any accounts made inactive for non-payment are subject to a $10.00 late payment fee. Any accounts terminated due to nonpayment are subject to a $10.00 restoration fee once all past due invoices have been paid.
(b) Payment Terms
The initial term commitment for every Redmont Media LLC package is for 12 months, paid on a monthly basis.
All payments to Redmont Media LLC are nonrefundable after the first 30 days of service. If after the first 30 days of service, you request the package to be converted to a different billing cycle any additional monies will be applied to your account in the form of credits and will not be refunded. Prior to paying a renewal invoice and before your renewal date you may have your payment terms changed at no additional charge. If you wish to cancel your term after the initial 12-month commitment Customer must provide a 30-day notice of prior to the end of the 12-month term commitment. If the request is not received the package will automatically renew at the advertised price on a month-to-month term until cancelled by Customer. Any cancellation as the result of a violation of our TOS or AUP will be nonrefundable.
(c) Payment for Non-Cancelable Materials
Any non-cancelable materials, services, etc., we have properly committed ourselves to purchase for your account, (either specifically or as part of a plan such as modules, photography and/or external services) shall be paid for by you, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. We agree to use our best efforts to minimize such liabilities immediately upon written notification from you. We will provide written proof, upon request of Customer, that any such materials and services, are non-cancelable.
(d) Credit/Debit card and your Address on File
When an order is placed with a credit/debit card, your card is stored on file and will automatically be charged every month two days before your due date. For security purposes your address on file with us must match the address of your credit/debit card. If this address does not match, our payment gateway will not accept the transaction. If you have a credit card on file and the transaction is declined due to the address this transaction might show up as a pending charge but will not be processed through. If you have a debit card on file and the transaction is declined due to the address your bank will pull the money out of your account, but this money will be refunded back to your account by your bank. It is recommended to always store a credit card on file instead of a debit card.
At Redmont Media LLC’s request Customer shall remit to Redmont Media LLC all sales, VAT or similar tax imposed on the provision of the services (but not in the nature of an income tax on Redmont Media LLC, regardless of whether Redmont Media fails to collect the tax at the time the related services are provided.
(f) Refunds for Domains & SSL Certificates
You may cancel any domain registration (other than domains registered via drop-catching) with us within three (3) days of purchase for a full refund (minus any applicable transaction fees). You may cancel at any time after the three-day period, but no refund will be issued. SSL Certificates may be canceled within 5 days of purchase for a full refund or account credit. After the five-day grace period you may cancel your SSL certificate, but no refund shall be issued.

Redmont Media LLC is not a domain registrar. We are a reseller for ENom so all Redmont Media customers who purchase a domain or transfer a domain to us are bound by the terms and conditions set forth by ENom. You will receive notice from Redmont Media LLC once your domain is up for renewal. If you do not renew your domain by the expiration date you run the risk of losing your domain. Domain names are billed as separate services and must be kept current to ensure they do not expire. If your domain name has expired, you may renew it at the regular price no more than 25 days after the expiration date. If the domain has been expired for 31 days or more it may have been auctioned off, if so, your domain is gone. If your domain was not auctioned, you may redeem the domain for a $125 fee no later than 60 days past the expiration date. Domains are not guaranteed to be renewable past 25 days of their expiration. All domains will cease to function past their expiration date until renewed. There is no grace period on domain name registrations. Should any payment dispute or charge-back arise regarding your domain name services, access and rights to your domain name will be immediately forfeited. To recover your domain name from forfeiture a reinstatement fee of $75 plus your remaining balance will be required if processed within the original expiration time.
(a) Domain Cancellation, Renewal and Refund Policy
You may cancel any domain registration (other than domains registered via drop-catching) with us within three (3) days of purchase for a full refund (minus any applicable transaction fees). You may cancel at any time after the three-day period, but no refund will be issued.
You may cancel domain renewals (other than renewals associated with Expired Domain Auctions) with us within three (3) days of purchase for an account credit (minus any applicable transaction fees). If you transfer your domain within 45 days of a domain renewal, you may not be entitled to a refund and you may also not receive any extended registration time on your domain. ALL DOMAIN RENEWAL CANCELLATIONS, OTHER THAN CERTAIN AUTOMATIC RENEWALS, WILL RESULT IN YOUR DOMAIN BEING DELETED AND PLACED INTO THE REDEMPTION PERIOD AT THE REGISTRY. THIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RENEW THE DOMAIN WITH US WITHOUT PAYING FOR A RESTORATION, OR POSSIBLY NOT AT ALL. IF YOU HAVE TIME REMAINING ON YOUR REGISTRATION IT WILL BE SACRIFICED IN TOTAL WHEN RECEIVING A RENEWAL REFUND. Important note regarding domain renewal refunds. At our sole discretion, we may choose not to issue a domain renewal refund if your cancellation rate surpasses the ratios set by our system.

The parties intend for their relationship to be that of independent contractors and not a partnership, joint venture, or employer/employee. Neither party will represent itself to be agent of the other. Each party acknowledges that it has no power or authority to bind the other on any agreement and that it will not represent to any person that it has such power or authority. This Agreement may be amended only by a formal written agreement signed by both parties. The terms on Customer’s purchase order or other business forms are not binding on Redmont Media LLC unless they are expressly incorporated into a formal written agreement signed by both parties. A party’s failure or delay in enforcing any provision of the Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of that party’s rights with respect to that provision or any other provision of the Agreement. A party’s waiver of any of its right under the Agreement is not a waiver of any of its other rights with respect to a prior, contemporaneous or future occurrence, whether similar in nature or not.

The following provisions will survive expiration or termination of the Agreement: Fees, indemnity obligations, provisions limiting liability and disclaiming warranties, provisions regarding ownership of intellectual property, these miscellaneous provisions, and other provisions that by their nature are intended to survive termination of the Agreement.
