When you contract with AD WIZARDS to design, create & host your Web Page or Website, upon completion of the work, you will own the code files created with some conditions attached. The exception to this is the use of custom graphics and custom programming. AD WIZARDS retains the copyrights for these images & code. These files may, under certain conditions, be used for a mirror website, but only with written permission by AD WIZARDS. Failure to get this permission will be considered an infringement of copyright and thus illegal use. Rights for all images and code/scripts are reserved by AD WIZARDS, unless otherwise agreed upon. All images and code/scripts are licensed for a one time use only on the client’s Web Site.
NOTE: All contracts for website development are to be completed within 90 days from signing of agreement unless specially agreed in writing to the contrary. Failure by client to provide the necessary text, photos, etc. as needed and within that time frame will constitute a violation of the agreement and, at AD WIZARDS’ discretion, may be grounds to terminate the agreement. No refunds will be given once any work has been started.
Payment for all services must be received in full prior to work being started if amount is less than $500.00 unless otherwise agreed upon in advance. For amounts over $500.00, 50% deposit/down payment, with balance due upon completion of work, will be required unless otherwise agreed upon in advance.
There will be a single anniversary date for any and all accounts with AD WIZARDS to simplify accounting. This may be modified at AD WIZARDS’ discretion. Normally you will be invoiced 30 days prior to your renewal anniversary date. Payment is due by said date or you risk having your site removed from the web. Hosting normally is paid for annually in advance.
If you wish to remove your files from our server and cancel your Host Agreement with AD WIZARDS, you may do so at any time with 30 days written notice. (Email is OK). Refunds for a partial year of hosting will be pro-rated using the monthly rate of $50/mo. provided that your account is paid in full. This is subject to some exceptions in certain cases, or where third party charges were involved. Refunds will be made at the sole discretion of AD WIZARDS and partial months of hosting will be considered as full months. In cases where advance notice is not given, under no circumstances would a refund apply unless AD WIZARDS agrees to provide it on a case by case basis.

(ix) Other – As posted by AD WIZARDS in this file
Because protecting your privacy is very important to AD WIZARDS, we have adopted the following policies to safeguard your personal information and are committed to protecting its confidentiality. We will limit the collection and use of personal information or “Individual Information” (as defined below) to what is necessary to administer our business, provide you with the highest quality service, and offer you opportunities we think will be of interest. We will NOT disclose any Individual Information except in limited circumstances as specifically provided below.
Individual Information means any information, data or records which relate to your AD WIZARDS advertising or use of AD WIZARDS and identifies you or your individual advertiser account. There are three types of Individual Information: (1) “Advertiser Identity and Billing Information,” such as your name, street address, telephone number and billing information, and any screen names associated with your account; (2) “Navigational and Transactional Information,” such as information about where you go or what you buy through AD WIZARDS; and (3) “Private Communications Content,” such as the contents of email, or instant message communications.
Please be aware that AD WIZARDS is a private service which is only a part of the Internet. AD WIZARDS does not control the content or services available through the Internet (except for the AD WIZARDS homepages), and providers of Internet sites or services have separate data and privacy practices which are independent of AD WIZARDS Internet areas may appear to be seamlessly incorporated into AD WIZARDS; however, currently, you can tell you’re on the Internet whenever the AD WIZARDS logo does not appear as you page through the screen.
Many of the online areas that you visit through AD WIZARDS are operated by companies that are independent from AD WIZARDS While AD WIZARDS will seek to require these independent companies (advertisers) to adhere to our strong privacy principles, AD WIZARDS does not bear responsibility for their policies or actions. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information (such as your screen name) to an advertiser or user, your information can be collected and used by others. Also, ordering products through AD WIZARDS often requires you to provide an independent company with limited Individual Information to enable them to fulfill and ship your order.
B. Collection and Storage.
(i) Advertiser Identity and Billing Information. We maintain the following types of Advertiser Identity and Billing Information: your name , company name, street address, telephone numbers, length of advertising, and payment information. We may also keep information on your communications with our Customer Service department, and general account history, such as written complaints relating to your account.
(ii) Navigational and Transactional Information. We may collect and store certain Navigational and Transactional Information, such as data on the choices you make among the range of available services or merchandise and the times and ways you use AD WIZARDS. (iii) Private Communications Content. AD WIZARDS does not record or retain any communications, instant message communications, or records of with whom you communicate in or through AD WIZARDS unless specifically authorized in writing by the Advertiser.
AD WIZARDS safeguards its advertisers’ Individual Information from unauthorized access and only authorized employees or agents who need to carry out legitimate business functions are permitted access to advertisers’ Individual Information. Employees who violate AD WIZARDS’ privacy policies are subject to disciplinary actions, including termination where appropriate.
You acknowledge that private communications directed at a person or entity, including AD WIZARDS , may be used or disclosed by the intended recipient(s) without restrictions relating to privacy or confidentiality.
(i) Private Communications Content. AD WIZARDS treats private communications on or through AD WIZARDS as strictly confidential and does not access, use or disclose the contents of private communications, except in limited circumstances as specifically provided in Section 7D below.
Because AD WIZARDS considers the Individual Information we maintain to be confidential, our policy is to not disclose Individual Information to third parties without prior consent (which may be oral or electronic), or unless specifically provided below. AD WIZARDS reserves the right to use agents, who are bound by strict confidentiality guidelines, to perform storage and processing functions.
(i) Advertiser Identity and Billing Information. From time to time, we make our mailing list available to select companies that offer products and information we think may be of interest to you. AD WIZARDS carefully screens all requests to use its mailing list to ensure that they are appropriate. AD WIZARDS does not release advertisers’ telephone numbers, credit card account numbers or checking account numbers (or other Individual Information, such as Navigational or Transactional Information or Private Communications Content). If you do not want your name released to these companies, simply indicate this on the Quote and Request for Service or by Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is our policy not to disclose to third parties advertiser Identity information that links a Advertiser’s screen name(s) with a advertiser’s actual name, unless required to do so by law or legal process served on AD WIZARDS (e.g., subpoena). AD WIZARDS reserves the right to make exceptions to this policy in exceptional circumstances (such as a bomb or suicide threat, or instances of suspected illegal activity) on a case-by-case basis and at AD WIZARDS’ sole discretion.
AD WIZARDS intends to abide by applicable laws governing the disclosure to governmental entities of Advertisers’ Individual Information and other records. When responding to legal process served on AD WIZARDS by non-government entities, unless otherwise ordered, AD WIZARDS’ current policy is to make reasonable efforts to notify affected advertiser(s) in advance of releasing the information in order to provide advertiser(s) an opportunity to pursue any available legal protection.
(ii) Navigational and Transactional Information. AD WIZARDS will not disclose to third parties Navigational or Transactional Information (e.g. where you go or what you buy on or through AD WIZARDS), except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process (e.g., search warrant or court order).
(iii) Private Communications Content. AD WIZARDS does not access or disclose the contents of private communications (e.g., email, instant messages, advertiser-created private rooms), unless it in good faith believes that such action is necessary (a) to comply with applicable law or valid legal process (e.g., search warrant or court order), (b) to protect the rights or property of AD WIZARDS , or (c) in emergencies when AD WIZARDS believes that physical safety is at risk.

(3) transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable Content,
(4) cause the screen to “scroll” faster than other advertisers or users are able to type to it or any action to a similar disruptive effect,
(5) impersonate any person, including but not limited to, an AD WIZARDS official or an information provider, forum leader, guide or host, or communicate under a false name or a name that you are not entitled or authorized to use,
(6) disrupt the normal flow of dialogue in a chat room or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other advertisers, users, individuals or entities,

(10) intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, including but not limited to any regulations having the force of law.
(i) Offensive Communication. AD WIZARDS is a service for businesses. Our goal is to provide a useful advertising medium and unrestricted access to that medium by anyone that may choose to use it. Using or linking to vulgar, abusive or hateful language undermines this goal and is not allowed. AD WIZARDS reserves the right to immediately terminate without refund any advertiser who uses AD WIZARDS in such a manner.
(ii) Harassment. When an advertiser or user targets another individual or entity to cause distress, embarrassment, unwanted attention, or other discomfort, this is harassment. AD WIZARDS does not condone harassment in any form and may suspend or terminate the accounts of any advertiser who harasses others. You may have a disagreement with someone’s point of view, but personal attacks, or attacks based on a person’s race, national origin, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disablement or other such affiliation, are prohibited. If you have a disagreement with someone’s point of view, address the subject, not the person.
(iii) Graphic Files. AD WIZARDS prohibits the transfer, posting, linking or other dissemination through, on or connected to AD WIZARDS of sexually explicit images or other content deemed offensive by AD WIZARDS. Any such use will result in automatic termination of the advertiser’s contract without refund of any advertising fees paid.
(iv) Impersonation. This can involve the portrayal of another person or entity, such as the impersonation of AD WIZARDS staff or an information provider, authorized Guide or Host, or communication under a false name or a name that you are not authorized to use. Advertisers must avoid the portrayal of AD WIZARDS personnel or others persons in all forms of online communication, including, but not limited to, screen names, advertiser profiles, chat dialogue and message postings.
(v) Chain Letters and Pyramid Schemes. Transmission of chain letters and pyramid schemes of any kind is not allowed on AD WIZARDS. This material uses AD WIZARDS in an unintended manner and is generally considered a nuisance by AD WIZARDS users. Certain chain letters and pyramid schemes are illegal. Letters or messages that offer a product or service based on the structure of a chain letter are also of questionable legality. At minimum, they are a waste of resources and are not permitted on AD WIZARDS.
(vi) Advertising, Solicitation and Name Harvesting. You may not use AD WIZARDS to send unsolicited advertising, promotional material, or other forms of solicitation to other Advertisers except in those specified areas that are designated for such a purpose (e.g., the classified area) unless you receive the express permission of the Advertiser. You may not use AD WIZARDS to collect or “harvest” screen names of other Advertisers without the express prior permission of the Advertiser. AD WIZARDS reserves the right to block or filter mass email solicitations on or through AD WIZARDS.
If you witness or are aware of any authorized use of AD WIZARDS, please contact AD WIZARDS immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and inform us of the user or advertiser using AD WIZARDS for unintended purposes.
Some communication within or linked to or with AD WIZARDS may not be screened in advance. Moreover, because AD WIZARDS encourages open dissemination of its advertisements, it cannot determine in advance the accuracy, or conformance to the AD WIZARDS POP. Further, AD WIZARDS cannot verify the credentials of AD WIZARDS advertisers. AD WIZARDS is not responsible for screening, policing, editing, or monitoring such Content. If notified of Content which is alleged not to conform to the AD WIZARDS POP, or which is a misrepresented advertisement on AD WIZARDS, AD WIZARDS may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and in its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of such Content from AD WIZARDS. AD WIZARDS shall have no liability or responsibility to you in respect of its performance or non-performance by AD WIZARDS of such activities, as long as it has acted in good faith.
Please use your best judgment in evaluating all information contained or opinions expressed on or through AD WIZARDS. You should be no less careful in your evaluation of such information and opinions on AD WIZARDS as you are in everyday life.
All Content is protected by copyright pursuant to U.S., international conventions, and other copyright laws as a collective work and/or compilation, and AD WIZARDS owns, licenses or has applied for a copyright in the selection, coordination, arrangement and enhancement of such Content. You may not modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as provided below), create derivative works from, distribute, perform, display or in any way exploit, any of the Content, in whole or in part; provided that if no specific restrictions are applied directly or indirectly in relation to a particular item of Content, you may make a reasonable number of copies of such item, including copyright material, provided that the copies are made and used only for your personal use and that you ensure that any notices contained in the Content such as all copyright, trademark, and other proprietary rights notices are reproduced in an unmodified form in all such copies.
Subject to the terms and conditions of your Quote and Request for Service, you may upload to AD WIZARDS’ software files only Content that is not subject to any copyright or other proprietary rights protection (collectively, “Public Domain Content”), or Content in respect of which the holder of any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights (“Rights”) has given express authorization for distribution on AD WIZARDS without any restriction whatsoever, and in respect of which any moral rights of any person or entity have been completely and irrevocably waived. Any copyright Content submitted with the consent of a copyright owner other than you should contain a phrase such as “Copyright owned by [name of the owner]; Used by Permission.” The unauthorized submission of copyright or Content which is otherwise subject of any third party Rights constitutes a breach of the AD WIZARDS POP and may also render you liable to the holder of such rights. Remember you, not AD WIZARDS or its affiliates or independent contractors (such as Independent Content Providers or “ICPs”), are exclusively responsible for any liability resulting from infringement of Rights arising from such submission or transmission.
The export control laws of the United States and other jurisdictions regulate the export and re-export of certain technology. This includes the electronic transmission of certain information and software to particular foreign countries and foreign nationals. You agree to abide by these laws — including but not limited to the United States Export Administration Act, Arms Export Control Act and their implementing regulations — and not to transfer, by electronic transmission or otherwise, any Content derived from AD WIZARDS which is governed by or regulated under such laws to a national or a destination prohibited or restricted under such laws without first obtaining any required governmental authorization. You further agree not to upload to AD WIZARDS any data or software that cannot be exported without prior written government authorization, including, but not limited to, certain types of encryption software. This assurance and commitment shall survive termination of the Agreement. In addition, because U.S. export control laws currently prohibit nationals of Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea and Syria from gaining access to certain Content on AD WIZARDS, nationals of these countries currently may not legally access AD WIZARDS.
E. Internet Access and Conduct.
AD WIZARDS is accessed through the Internet. Generally, the Internet consists of the following areas: Email, News Groups, Gopher and WAIS, FTP, and the World Wide Web. The Internet is not owned, or operated by, or in any way affiliated with, AD WIZARDS or any of its affiliates; it is a separate, independent network of computers and is not part of AD WIZARDS. You use of the Internet is solely at your own risk. When using the Internet and all of its components, advertisers and users must conduct themselves responsibly according to the Internet’s own particular code of conduct.

(i) Copyright and Proprietary Materials. Transmitting to the Internet copyright or other material of any kind which is subject to the Rights of any person or entity without the express permission of the Rights holder is prohibited and will result in termination of your advertising and possible civil and/or criminal liability.

AD WIZARDS neither endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of such Content, goods or services. AD WIZARDS does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, usefulness, quality or availability of any Content, goods or services available on the Internet, which are the sole responsibility of such independent third parties, and your use thereof is solely at your own risk. Neither AD WIZARDS nor its affiliates shall be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused or alleged to have been caused by your use of or reliance on any Content, goods or services available on the Internet or your inability to access the Internet or any site on the Internet.
