The customer acknowledges and understands that software and/or website development projects are NOT fixed-price projects in any way. The estimate of development and design hours provided in the invoice to Client by Company is based exclusively on a “BEST ESTIMATE” of total development time in hours projected to be spent by Company and its development team to design, develop and complete the project. If the Company’s total time spent on the development/design project exceeds the time estimate provided to Client via the invoice or the time allotment for the specific product purchased, the Customer will be invoiced accordingly at the hourly rate of $150.00 USD. The fixed-cost website projects (4-page and 5-7 page sites) include a maximum of 25 hours of design on 4-page site projects and 40 hours in additional design for 5-7 site projects plus 10 web development labor hours for site set up and existing page migration labor. Accordingly, a 4-page fixed cost site project includes a MAXIMUM of 35 total labor hours, and 5-7 site fixed cost site projects include up to 50 hours of design and development labor hours.

Customer acknowledges and understands that software and website development involves hundreds if not thousands of small details and that development of a new website or software product/integration often involves new ideas, evolutions, iterations or changes that the Customer would like implemented as the project develops over time.

We do not receive refunds on advertising dollars spent or labor hours expended/provided to conduct the work noted in the invoice, therefore we cannot and do not provide any refunds on any hosting or digital marketing services once payment is made for any reason. Customer understands that content creation and hosting of that content for web presence and SEO purposes will occur monthly and be hosted in the media room software and web presence software provided by Company. These software solutions require constant hosting to stay alive and the Customer understands that cancellation or termination of services includes the cancellation of the hosting of all related software and hosting services being provided by Company.

Written notice of cancellation may be sent to our mailing address at 303 N Delphine Ave, Waynesboro, VA. 22980 or by email to info[at]marketinghippos.com. Due to the nature of recurring services and the costs to the Company to deliver them, recurring services will be suspended if an account invoice remains unpaid past 14 days of the date of issue.

In the event the bandwidth, the number of websites, or disk space usage of your website presents a risk to the stability, performance, or up-time of our servers, data storage, networking, or other infrastructure, you may be required to upgrade to a VPS or Dedicated Server, or we may take temporary action to restrict the resources your website is utilizing.

In the event that you exceed this threshold, Company may in its sole and absolute discretion, assess additional usage charges for accounts in excess of the threshold or restrict additional accounts from being created. Where possible, Company will provide notice of your usage in excess of the normal use.
Hosting services may be suspended or terminated at any time by Company, if in the Company’s sole discretion, Company deems that the account and the server resources are being used for sending spam or if the Customer uses the hosting to send email and Company’s domain is flagged by ISP’s or other 3rd parties for suspicious email sending practices.

Company reserves the right to disable and/or terminate a user’s account if a user is found in violation of these terms and conditions, state or federal laws, or fails to provide proper written notice of cancellation.

Digital advertising is a recurring product and service however digital advertising campaigns require significant setup and ongoing connections to many different third-party providers for audience targeting and advertising campaign deployment. Third-party platforms include, but are not limited to, Google Ads, Google Display Network, Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, Geofence Ads and more. Due to the extensive and significant amount of setup and ongoing maintenance required for deploying digital advertising campaigns, ALL digital ad campaigns require a three (3) month minimum commitment. The start date of the campaign is the date the customer makes the payment on the first invoice for the actual ad campaign deployment. Please note that ad campaign setup is NOT part of the 3-month minimum commitment. Once the setup phase of the digital ad campaign is complete, Company issues Customer a separate invoice for the ad campaign which includes advertising spend, campaign management and optimizations, and ongoing monthly analysis and reporting. Company commonly calls the Digital Advertising Solutions it offers, “Conquest Equation” or “Ad Equation” or “Ad Signals.” Invoice line items that use these solution names are for digital advertising and fall under these terms accordingly. If customer cancels a digital advertising solution with Company prior to the 90-day minimum, Customer is responsible for paying the full amount of the 90-day term using the first month’s line item amount(s) as the monthly obligation to calculate the total minimum due for the three-month commitment requirement and the remaining balance for the three-month minimum term shall be assessed as a cancellation fee in the event that Customer fails to provide Company with proper notice of intent to cancel digital advertising solutions.
