Terms of Service

By using the Rimiv Digital services, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions. Rimiv Digital reserves the right to change the Terms and Conditions at any time without notice, and your continued use of Rimiv Digital constitutes your consent to such changes.

The column on the right provides a clearer, plain English overview of the terms of service, and is not legally binding.

1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES. Rimiv will provide an ongoing set of online services, including website design, copy and editorial development, search engine optimization, and website updates as described on the signup page for each specific service.

This means…

We’ll provide the relevant service to you based on your subscription to our services.
2. LIMITATIONS OF SCOPE. Rimiv will not be responsible for work that is beyond the scope of services set forth in the plan in effect at the time Client initiates the service. Any changes to the scope of services will not be effective unless approved by both parties.

This means…

We provide services in accordance with your subscription, and while we are flexible in response to certain requests to alter the scope of work, there are limitations beyond which additional charges may occur.

4. PAYMENT FOR SERVICES. For Websites: Client will be charged their Website Build Fee according to the payment terms in their quote; they will be charged their Managed Web Service Fee starting immediately after completion of the website build and recurring every thirty (30) days thereafter.

For all Other Services:

The date that Client signs up for their initial recurring service with Rimiv — not including Website Builds — is their “Billing Cycle Date.”

Some services have a one-time Setup Fee which will be charged upon signup (on the initial Billing Cycle Date). For services without a one-time Setup Fee, Client will be charged their Monthly Recurring Fee once Rimiv’s work on a service has commenced (the first charge will be prorated for the month based on the Billing Cycle Date); Client will then be charged their Monthly Recurring Fee in full starting on the next Billing Cycle Date.

If Client opts for a Yearly Recurring Fee for services, they will be charged the full Yearly Recurring Fee upon signup, with subsequent years’ charges on the same date. For all services with One-time Fees and no Monthly Recurring Fee, Client will likewise be charged the full amount upon signup.

Invoices will be generated for every charge, and payment will be made by Client via credit card transactions or bank transfer. Rimiv reserves the right to collect late-payment charges of 1.5% per month on past due balances.

This means…

Your payments will be made via credit card or bank transfer, some upon signup, some when the work begins, and some based on your signup date (or “Billing Cycle Date”); in all cases, the payment schedule for your specific services will be made clear to you upon signup.

5. COPYRIGHT. All content produced by Rimiv in accordance with Client’s website subscription — including copywriting, graphic design, and WordPress code — is copyrighted by Rimiv and shall remain the exclusive property of Rimiv until Client has paid in full for their Website Build Fee.

After the Client has paid in full for their Website Build Fee, they may take possession of all content at any time — including copywriting, graphic design, and WordPress code — to be used indefinitely by Client for their company website and/or other marketing collateral without infringement on Rimiv’s copyrights. The usage will be restricted to the Client company only, and Client does not have any rights to resell, license, or otherwise allow 3rd-party use of the content.

Rimiv provides three options for sending copyrighted website material to Client upon request: content export, full website backup file, full website backup file with managed migration.

This means…

We retain the copyrights for anything we create or license in accordance with your Website Build Fee until you have paid in full for said fee. If you end your relationship with us, you may make use of the copyrighted material to promote your business, but you may not resell it or present it as your own service in any way.
6. CLIENT ACCOUNT. For the duration of the subscription to Rimiv services, Client agrees not to take any action that would expose Rimiv Technologies or other Rimiv Technologies clients to any undue risk, including but not limited to uploading malware or other malicious code, or attempting to disrupt, disable, or impair Rimiv Technologies services or products. Each Client will have access to a Client Company account wherein individual Client user accounts can be created. Each Client user is solely responsible for the confidentiality, security, and management of their own user account and agrees to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under the account, including but not limited to communications sent or received, services subscribed to, or payments made. If any unauthorized personnel gains access to a Client user account, the authorized user or a Client Company representative will notify Rimiv Technologies as soon as practicably possible upon learning of said access. Each Client user will take reasonable steps to ensure the security of their user account, including maintaining confidentiality of their user account password.

This means…

We maintain a highly secure and efficient platform for our clients’ websites, so please do not do anything that could put that security at risk, and please adhere to all WordPress security and performance best practices.
7. LINK. Customer hereby acknowledges and agrees that Rimiv shall have the right to use the name of Client, including the Client Web Site, for reference as a customer of Rimiv services for referral and marketing purposes.

This means…

We’re proud to have you as a customer, so we might recommend others to check out your website as well.

8. TERM/TERMINATION. Except for reasons of non-performance by either party, this Agreement shall remain in effect until formally terminated in writing by either party. Rimiv will start Client’s subscription billing in accordance with the payment terms below, and any recurring billing shall automatically renew for subsequent one (1) month periods.

Termination of this Agreement and subsequent billing requires a formal written or email notice delivered by Client to Rimiv at least thirty (30) days prior to the desired date of termination. Repeated failures by Client to make payment by billing due dates gives Rimiv the option to immediately terminate this Agreement.

Upon the termination or expiration of this Agreement for non-payment or non-performance by Client, (i) all licenses granted by Rimiv to Client hereunder shall automatically terminate and Client shall immediately cease their use of the licensed content and any marketing collateral provided by Rimiv, and (ii) Client’s right to any and all services afforded to them by Rimiv shall automatically terminate.

If your website subscription has not been paid in full at the time of its termination, Rimiv will maintain an archived copy of all content — including copywriting, graphic design, and WordPress code — for three (3) years. All content associated with the canceled website subscription will be permanently deleted after that three (3) year period has ended.

This means…

If you fail to make payments on time, we can terminate the Agreement. If you would like to terminate the Agreement for any reason, you must give us thirty (30) days’ notice.

9. PAYMENT FOR SERVICES. Your “Billing Cycle Date” is the date on which you sign up for your initial service with Rimiv.

10. MODIFICATIONS TO SERVICES AND PRICING. Rimiv reserves the right to modify or discontinue, either temporarily or permanently, any part of our services at any time by posting updates to our website. We may redesign certain services because we think they would be better, or we may stop accepting new signups to a service.

Sometimes we change the pricing of our services. We usually exempt existing customers from those changes, but we may choose to change pricing for existing customers in certain situations. If we do, we will provide at least 30 days’ notice via your email address on record.

This means…

We might update or discontinue one of our services from time to time. If you’re already enrolled in a service that is changing, we’ll likely grandfather your subscription, so nothing changes for you. If we decide not to grandfather your subscription we’ll give you at least 30 days’ notice via email before implementing any changes.

This means…

We provide some services at no additional cost to you, however, we need to place some limits on this in cases of excessive usage to ensure that this works for everyone.
