By using our services, you are agreeing to the following terms:
Please read this carefully. While using our services, you must follow any policies made available to you within our scope of services. Don’t misuse our services. For example, don’t interfere with our services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide to you. You may use our services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct. Using our services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our services or the content you access. You may not use content from our services unless you obtain permission from the owners of Mechanics Websites or you are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our services. Our services may display some content that is not owned by Mechanics Websites. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available.

Your Mechanics Websites account:
Your account is to be kept current at all times. Regarding payment of monthly subscriptions, services or other items not mentioned in this policy, all items or services on any invoice are due upon receipt. It is our policy to allow up to 30 days to pay your invoice, subscriptions or service fees. If they are not paid on time (Usually a 10 day grace period is extended), Mechanics Websites has the right to discontinue service or take down your website without notice. Sometimes our customers forget about their obligations and it is at Mechanics Website’s discretion whether or not to contact the customer to give them an extension or arrange payment. If Mechanics Websites has tried to reach the customer post or prior to the due date of an invoice, fee or subscription and has failed, Mechanics Websites may discontinue service without notice! If you are on auto pay, which means that you are being charged monthly through a credit card or other service which automatically transfers funds to Mechanics Websites and the service or transfer fails, Mechanics Websites will contact you regarding that transaction before discontinuing service.
Website Development services:
Mechanics Websites is a premier website solutions provider and it is our goal to make your website represent your business exactly as it should be. Any new website development will begin with a consultation about your goals, what colors you like, what styles you like and then we will talk about who will be involved with this project. The next step would be signing a web development contract between Mechanics Websites and the customer. 50% of the total price for the proposed website would be collected after signing the contract and the remaining 50% would be due upon completion. There are no refunds on any monies collected from the customer should the customer or NowSoft terminate this contract for any reason. Any modifications to the website after all balances have been paid would incur new charges to be able to make those changes. The customer would retain ownership of all content, pictures, videos...etc, provided to Mechanics Websites for the development of their new website. Any written content, pictures, videos or services that produce content such as pictures or videos which are provided by Mechanics Websites will remain in Mechanics Website's ownership. Once the website has been purchased, then all content that is part of the website such as, photos or videos, whether provided by the customer or by Mechanics Websites would then become the property of the customer. All other services provided by Mechanics Websites are separate from our Web Development Service.

S.E.O. (Search Engine Optimization):
SEO is constantly changing. Google applies about 500 updates a year to it's algorithms. Movement in where you rank is constantly changing according to any and all updates applied by Google or BING. Neither Mechanics Websites, nor any other company can guarantee you 1st page placement with so many changes to Google and BING's constant manipulation of their code. We use the latest methods and software to get you the best results possible. Also, because of the way SEO works and because every company who provides SEO executes it differently and because we want to retain our procedures and methods secrecy, if you end your service with our company, we will take down all of the SEO practices we implemented through our procedures and methods. This is to prevent other companies from viewing our procedures and to give the new company a clean slate to implement their procedures and methods.
