Last updated October 17, 2010
BY USING HYPERSITES BUILDER (THE 'SERVICE'), YOU AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS (THE 'AGREEMENT') GOVERNING YOUR USE OF THE HYPERSITES INTERNATIONAL, LLC ('HYPERSITES') ONLINE SERVICE. IF YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER LEGAL ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ENTITY TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, IN WHICH CASE THE TERMS 'YOU' OR 'YOUR' SHALL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MUST CEASE USE OF THE SERVICE IMMEDIATELY.

1. Welcome
As part of the Service, HYPERSITES will provide you with use of the Service, including a browser interface and data encryption, transmission, access and storage. Your registration for, or use of, the Service shall be deemed to be your agreement to abide by this Agreement including any materials available on the hypersites.com website incorporated by reference herein, including but not limited to HYPERSITES' privacy and security policy. For reference, a Definitions section is included at the end of this Agreement.

2. Privacy & Security
HYPERSITES' privacy and security policy may be viewed at http://www.hypersites.com/. HYPERSITES reserves the right to modify its privacy and security policy in its reasonable discretion from time to time. Individual users, when they initially log in, will be asked whether or not they wish to receive marketing and other non-critical Service-related communications from HYPERSITES from time to time. They may opt out of receiving such communications at that time or at any subsequent time by changing their account preferences. Note that because the Service is a hosted, online application, HYPERSITES occasionally may need to notify all users of the Service (whether or not they have opted out as described above) of important announcements regarding the operation of the Service.

3. License Grant & Restrictions
HYPERSITES grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide right to use the Service, solely for your own internal business purposes, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. All rights not expressly granted to you are reserved by HYPERSITES and its licensors.

You shall not (i) license, sublicense, sell, resell, transfer, assign, distribute or otherwise commercially exploit or make available to any third party the Service or the Content in any way; (ii) modify or make derivative works based upon the Service or the Content; (iii) create Internet 'links' to the Service or 'frame' or 'mirror' any Content on any other server or wireless or Internet-based device; or (iv) reverse engineer or access the Service in order to (a) build a competitive product or service, (b) build a product using similar ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Service, or (c) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Service. HyperSites Builder licenses cannot be shared or used by more than one individual User but may be reassigned from time to time to new Users who are replacing former Users who have terminated employment or otherwise changed job status or function and no longer use the Service.

4. Your Responsibilities
You are responsible for all activity occurring under your User accounts and shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with your use of the Service, including those related to data privacy, international communications and the transmission of technical or personal data. You shall: (i) notify HYPERSITES immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security; (ii) report to HYPERSITES immediately and use reasonable efforts to stop immediately any copying or distribution of Content that is known or suspected by you or your Users; and (iii) not impersonate another HYPERSITES user or provide false identity information to gain access to or use the Service.

5. Account Information and Data
HYPERSITES does not own any data, information or material that you submit to the Service in the course of using the Service ('Customer Data'). You, not HYPERSITES, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all Customer Data, and HYPERSITES shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage, loss or failure to store any Customer Data. In the event this Agreement is terminated (other than by reason of your breach), HYPERSITES will make available to you a file of the Customer Data within 30 days of termination if you so request at the time of termination. HYPERSITES reserves the right to withhold, remove and/or discard Customer Data without notice for any breach, including, without limitation, your non-payment. Upon termination for cause, your right to access or use Customer Data immediately ceases, and HYPERSITES shall have no obligation to maintain or forward any Customer Data.

6. Intellectual Property Ownership
HYPERSITES alone (and its licensors, where applicable) shall own all right, title and interest, including all related Intellectual Property Rights, in and to the HYPERSITES Technology, software, code base, rendering engine, the Content and the Service and any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by you or any other party relating to the Service. This Agreement is not a sale and does not convey to you any rights of ownership in or related to the Service, the HYPERSITES Technology or the Intellectual Property Rights owned by HYPERSITES. The HYPERSITES name, the HYPERSITES logo, and the product names associated with the Service are trademarks of HYPERSITES or third parties, and no right or license is granted to use them.

7. Third Party Interactions
During use of the Service, you may enter into correspondence with, purchase goods and/or services from, or participate in promotions of advertisers or sponsors showing their goods and/or services through the Service. Any such activity, and any terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such activity, is solely between you and the applicable third-party. HYPERSITES and its licensors shall have no liability, obligation or responsibility for any such correspondence, purchase or promotion between you and any such third-party. HYPERSITES does not endorse any sites on the Internet that are linked through the Service. HYPERSITES provides these links to you only as a matter of convenience, and in no event shall HYPERSITES or its licensors be responsible for any content, products, or other materials on or available from such sites. HYPERSITES provides the Service to you pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You recognize, however, that certain third-party providers of ancillary software, hardware or services may require your agreement to additional or different license or other terms prior to your use of or access to such software, hardware or services.

8. Charges and Payment of Fees
You shall pay all fees or charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. Payments may be made annually, monthly, or quarterly, consistent with the Initial Term, or as otherwise mutually agreed upon. You are responsible for paying for all application licenses for the entire term, whether or not the applications are used. You must provide HYPERSITES with valid credit card as a condition to signing up for the Service. An authorized representative may add additional applications by using the HYPERSITES order management system. HYPERSITES reserves the right to modify its fees and charges and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to you, which notice may be provided by e-mail.

9. Excess Data Storage Fees
The maximum web site disk storage space provided to you at no additional charge is 200 MB. In addition each email address is provided up to 200 MB of storage. If the amount of disk storage required exceeds these limits, you will be charged the then-current storage fees. HYPERSITES will use reasonable efforts to notify you when the average storage used per license reaches approximately 90% of the maximum; however, any failure by HYPERSITES to so notify you shall not affect your responsibility for such additional storage charges. HYPERSITES reserves the right to establish or modify its general practices and limits relating to storage of Customer Data.

10. Billing and Renewal
HYPERSITES charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. HYPERSITES will automatically renew and bill your credit card or issue an invoice to you (a) every month for monthly licenses, (b) every quarter for quarterly licenses, (c) each year on the subsequent anniversary for annual licenses, or (d) as otherwise mutually agreed upon. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis, at standard hourly rates or as mutually agreed upon. HYPERSITES' fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on HYPERSITES' income.
You agree to provide HYPERSITES with complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes your legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact. You agree to update this information within 30 days of any change to it. If the contact information you have provided is false or fraudulent, HYPERSITES reserves the right to terminate your access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies.

Unless HYPERSITES in its discretion determines otherwise all entities will be billed in U.S. dollars and subject to U.S. payment terms and pricing schemes.
If you believe your bill is incorrect, you must contact us in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.

11. Non-Payment and Suspension
In addition to any other rights granted to HYPERSITES herein, HYPERSITES reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service if your account becomes delinquent (falls into arrears). Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. You will continue to be charged for services during any period of suspension. If you or HYPERSITES initiates termination of this Agreement, you will be obligated to pay the balance due on your account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. You agree that HYPERSITES may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees.
HYPERSITES reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event you are suspended and thereafter request access to the Service. You agree and acknowledge that HYPERSITES has no obligation to retain Customer Data and that such Customer Data may be irretrievably deleted if your account is 30 days or more delinquent.

12. Agreement Term
This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and will remain in effect for an initial Term of twelve (12) months. Upon the expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement will automatically renew for successive renewal terms equal in duration to the Initial Term at HYPERSITES' then current fees. Either party may terminate this Agreement, effective only upon the expiration of the then current Term, by notifying the other party in writing at least thirty (30) business days prior to the start of the following term. In the case of free trials, notifications provided through the Service indicating the remaining number of days in the free trial shall constitute notice of termination. In the event this Agreement is terminated (other than by reason of your breach), HYPERSITES will make available to you a file of the Customer Data within 30 days of termination if you so request at the time of termination. You agree and acknowledge that HYPERSITES has no obligation to retain the Customer Data, and may delete such Customer Data, more than 30 days after termination.

13. Termination for Cause
Any breach of your payment obligations or unauthorized use of the HYPERSITES Technology or Service will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement. HYPERSITES, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account or use of the Service if you breach or otherwise fail to comply with this Agreement. In addition, HYPERSITES may terminate a free account at any time in its sole discretion. You agree and acknowledge that HYPERSITES has no obligation to retain the Customer Data, and may delete such Customer Data, if you have materially breached this Agreement, including but not limited to failure to pay outstanding fees, and such breach has not been cured within 30 days of notice of such breach.
