These Terms of Service ("Agreement") are entered into between you (referred to as "you", "your" and "Customer") and Verizon Online LLC, or its' affiliates (see Attachment A) (referred to as "Verizon", "we", "our", or "us"). This Agreement is comprised of the Service Quotation ("Quotation") provided to you, our Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") set forth at, http://business.verizon.net/policies/acceptable_use.asp, as well as our Privacy Policy located at http://business.verizon.net/policies/privacy.asp and the Privacy Policy located at https://www.homestead.com/~site/Legal/privacy.ffhtml. Your acceptance of the Terms of Service indicates your agreement to comply with this Agreement regarding your use of the Services. You will be deemed to have accepted this Agreement upon the earlier of: (a) submission of your order; (b) acceptance of this Agreement electronically; (c) your use of the Service.

  1. Service. The term "Service" shall mean the Verizon Websites service, including all features, functions and/or applications that are included with the Verizon Websites service, or are purchased as an additional feature(s) of Verizon Websites, including WebListings. The term "Content" shall mean audio, video, image or other files or data in digital or electronic form of any type provided by or on behalf of you that resides on or is linked to or from the Service.

  2. Term. This Agreement shall be effective upon your acceptance of this Agreement, as provided above, and shall continue either on a month-to-month basis or for the term specified for the Service or Verizon Bundled Service ("Bundled Service") plan you select (the "Initial Term"). The Initial Term begins when you accept this Agreement and ends when you or we terminate this Agreement as permitted herein. If you subscribe to a plan with a minimum term commitment (a "Term Plan"), you agree to maintain the Service or Bundled Service for the duration of that Term Plan. For Verizon Websites, your Term Plan begins on the later of: (a) the date you change your existing Service plan to a Term Plan; or (b) your Service Ready Date; for Bundled Services, your Term Plan begins once all Bundled Services have been provisioned. You will begin receiving any discount associated with a Bundled Service plan once all Bundled Services have been provisioned. At the end of any Term Plan you may be given the option to select a new Term Plan. If you do not select a new Term Plan, your Service will automatically convert to a month-to-month Service plan until terminated by either party as permitted by this Agreement at a monthly fee that may be higher than your current rate. If you select a new Term Plan, the terms of that plan will apply. In the event you change Service or Bundled Service plans, your monthly rate and term commitment may change (depending on the plan you select); otherwise, the terms of this Agreement will remain in effect unless otherwise provided. We reserve the right to terminate the Service (or any part thereof) in the event we cease to offer the Service generally or to your location. If we cease offering the Service (or any part thereof) generally or to your location, we will give you at least thirty (30) days advance notice.

  3. Prices. We will give you at least thirty (30) calendar days prior notice of a price change. Your continued use of the Service after the effective date of the price change constitutes your acceptance of such change. If you change your Service, you agree to pay the monthly fee that applies to your new Service. You are responsible for all charges associated with the Service, including but not limited to a) applicable taxes, b) surcharges, c) set up fees, and d) charges for FTP site moves, domain name services, and excess storage and resource utilization. These charges may vary on a monthly basis; any variation will be reflected in your monthly bill. You also agree to pay any additional charges or fees applied to your account due to insufficient credit or insufficient funds.

  4. Billing. Billing on your account will begin once your Service order is submitted. We will bill you on a monthly basis using the billing method you select. Any nonrecurring charges for FTP Site moves, domain name services, set-up or other such fees will be included on your first month's bill. Monthly recurring charges will be billed one month in advance; any usage charges will be billed in arrears. Verizon or its agent will bill you directly, or bill your credit card or your local Verizon telephone bill (telephone billing available in selected areas only), as you request and subject to approval by Verizon. IF YOU ELECT TO BE BILLED FOR THE SERVICE ON YOUR VERIZON PHONE BILL, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR AGREEMENT TO HAVE VERIZON CHARGES INCLUDED ON YOUR VERIZON LOCAL TELEPHONE BILL.

  5. Payment, Late Fee and Credit Related Matters. Payment to Verizon is due upon receipt of our invoice and shall be made in U.S. currency. A payment received thirty (30) calendar days or more after the invoice date is considered past due. If your charges are billed by your Verizon local telephone company, the Late Fee applied will be equal to the late payment charge that your local telephone company applies. If your charges are not billed by your Verizon local telephone company, you agree to pay late fees equal to the amount due plus interest of 1.5% for each month or part of a month (or the maximum interest allowed by law, whichever is less). Verizon may assign unpaid delinquent charges to a collection agency for action. If we use a collection agency or take legal action to recover monies due, you agree to reimburse Verizon for all expenses we incur to recover such monies (including attorney's fees). If you fail to pay your bill, we may submit a negative credit report to a credit reporting agency, which will negatively affect your credit report. We may evaluate your credit history before modifying or providing you Service. In order to establish an account with us and/or obtain or modify Service, we may obtain a report from a consumer credit agency or exchange information with our affiliates in connection with determining your creditworthiness. Verizon may cancel your order or terminate this Agreement if, in our sole judgment, the results of such credit search are unacceptable.
