Terms of Service

Acceptance of Terms of Use
These Terms of Use govern your use of any Polaris Graphics website or SiteMaker website referenced as "the system" unless other terms are specifically noted. By using, visiting, or browsing the system, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, you should not use the system.

Changes to Terms of Use
Polaris Graphics, Inc. reserves the right, from time to time, with or without notice to you, to change these Terms of Use in our sole discretion. The most current version of these Terms of Use can be reviewed by clicking on the "Terms of Use" hyperlink located at the bottom of the Polaris Graphics home page. The most current version of the Terms of Use will supersede all previous versions. Your use of the system after changes are made means that you agree to be bound by such changes.

Any information submitted on the system is subject to our Privacy Policy, the terms of which can be found by clicking on the “Privacy Policy” hyperlink at the bottom of the Polaris Graphics home page. Please review our Privacy Policy to understand our practices.

As a subscriber to the system, you agree that we are permitted to charge or debit, as applicable, your Payment Method a monthly subscription fee, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the system. As used in these Terms of Use, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The subscription fee will normally be invoiced each month, on the first of the month, until you cancel services. We will automatically bill your Payment Method each month on or near the first day of the month. All fees and charges are generally nonrefundable, but exceptions can be made under extreme circumstances, and at the sole discretion of Polaris Graphics, Inc. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time. You may review your charges in the billing screen of the system at any time. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you must call customer service during normal business hours to update your payment method or update your billing information on the billing screen within the system. Failure to do so may result in the disabling of your account if your payment method is denied. A reactivation fee of $25.00 will apply to regain access to your account.

While complete customer satisfaction is our goal, we are unable to offer partial month refunds or complete refunds after the first month of service, except under extreme circumstances such as failure of the system to meet availability standards. Such circumstances and refunds are determined solely by Polaris Graphics, Inc. and are issued at our discretion. We ask that any requests for cancellation be made a full 2 weeks prior to your next billing date. Orders placed on the site are final and binding.

Automatic Renewals
Your subscription to the system will be automatically renewed on a monthly basis. For your convenience, we will bill the monthly subscription fee to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). Your membership will automatically renew for successive monthly subscriptions, without prior notice to you, unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees to your Payment Method.

As noted above, you may cancel your subscription to the system at anytime. To cancel, you must contact customer service during normal business hours and request the cancelation. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial monthly subscription periods.

Account Access
In order to provide you with ease of access to your account, Polaris Graphics, Inc. will place a cookie (a small text file) on any computer from which you access the system. This cookie will be temporary and will not store your username and password. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer.

Storage Space
You may be limited to the amount of storage space you may use on the server. You will be warned in the system dashboard when you are within 50mb of this limit. If you go over the limit, you will not be able to upload any more files until you delete enough files to put you under your limit again. Limits will vary based on the type of service you have subscribed to. If your service includes a storage limit, that limit will be clearly noted within the system dashboard.

Custom Design Services
A custom design for a website as defined by Polaris Graphics, Inc. is a concept, layout and applied rendering, created to, as closely as possible, meet the design requests of each individual customer, and is unique to that customer. A custom design will never be exactly duplicated for a second customer. Some services provided via the system entitle customers to a single custom design, per this definition, for their website, at no additional cost. These customers will be provided, via email or electronic image, a mock-up of their custom design prior to application to their site, which will not be applied to the website until that mock-up is approved, as the custom design, by the customer. Once approved and applied, the design may be changed at additional cost to the customer, a rate to be determined by Polaris Graphics, Inc., based on the requirements of the design.
