  • For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.
  • Please see the section below titled “Intellectual Property.”
  • Once you have fulfilled the terms of your 12-month agreement, you will obtain full ownership of your logo, website, all website content, and any other related design elements. Upon request, Notion Design Group will provide you with a backup file of your entire website and native logo files. However, Notion Design Group IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for installing, troubleshooting or supporting your website once the agreement period is complete and a backup file is provided.
  • All 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.
CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION OF THE SERVICE

Notion Design Group has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other Notion Design Group service (see Right To Refuse Service below). You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. You are free to cancel your account at any time. All Website plans and Website Add-Ons with an 12-month service agreement will continue to be billed for the remainder of the agreement, regardless of whether or not you use the service or have requested a cancellation (this is to cover the cost of the initial design and development of your website and applicable add-ons). 

If you cancel your subscription with Notion Design Group, you will not be eligible to repurchase or reactivate any maintenance services for the cancelled site for a period of 6 months, unless you’ve reached the end of a 12-month agreement with fully paid account balance. This is due to the high cost of setting up and establishing maintenance services and/or hosting for any particular site.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

If you hire us to design your website or logo, you agree that this is a work for hire contract. All rights and the intellectual property that Notion Design Group creates shall be transferred to you upon completion of an 12-month service agreement unless otherwise agreed in writing. The purpose of this clause is to ensure that Notion Design Group is reimbursed for the expense it incurs in designing any of the above stated or below agreed to elements requested by you.

CHANGES TO THE SERVICE AND PRICES

Notion Design Group reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice if payment is not received within 30 days of monthly due date or invoice. Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly subscription plan fees to the Service, are subject to change at the time of contract renewal after 12-month term upon 30 days notice from us. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to notiondesigngroup.com and/or emailing you. We shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE

Notion Design Group reserves the right to refuse to do business with you. We have the right to terminate your services and give you any applicable refunds. This may occur if we determine that your website or product or IT resources or IT needs require an extraordinary amount of effort on our part. We will try to negotiate a more suitable compensation arrangement before we terminate our relationship and services (see General Conditions below). If we terminate services, we will provide you with full ownership of any assets completed before the termination date (this may include logo, website, website content, and any other related design elements that have been completed). Upon this type of service termination, the agreement will be voided and you will no longer be responsible for the completion of monthly payments or the fulfillment of your agreement. However, if your website is not completed, we are not responsible for the completion of the project upon termination.

WEBSITE DESIGN AND RE-DESIGN

All Website plans include the customization of one template (unless otherwise stated in writing). We reserve the right to refuse to offer you this service or refund you any money paid for this service. This may happen if we deem your existing site ineligible for the website design or re-design due to its content, platform, or custom programming and integrations.

For the design or re-design, we reserve the right to build your new site on any technology platform we deem most appropriate. Usually, this will be WordPress. WordPress allows us to perform your updates more efficiently and also allows you the potential to easily add blogs and other features to your new site.

After we receive your completed homepage content and required content from you, we will customize and build your website. We’ll send you a link to review the website on our development server. At that point, you are allowed 1 round of revisions before going live with the website.
