Recognizing the global nature of the internet, Client agrees to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable content. Specifically, Client agrees to comply with a) all laws and regulations regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States, or the country in which Client resides and/or transacts business, and b) all laws and regulations regarding the collection and processing of personal data, including those relating to the transborder transfer of personal data.

Client hereby consents to the collection, processing and transborder transfer of such personal information as Client may provide or make available to NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC.
10. Website Construction Procedure
With help and input from the Client, NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC will develop the website. Before work may begin on a website, the Client must electronically accept these Terms of Service. Client may submit content to NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC through email or other means of file transfer agreed upon by both parties.
In submitting content, links to sample sites the Client likes are for general information purposes only and assist NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC with the design of the Client’s custom website. The functionality and detail of the sample sites will not be duplicated unless such functionality and detail are specifically included and itemized in NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s invoice and/or Database Specifications Summaries and do not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others.
NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC will not be held liable for accuracy of information, typos, or spelling errors in any of the content approved by the Client and published on the website. Client will be notified by email when the website is completed. Upon completion (including completion of payment), the website files will be provided electronically to the client or the website published live, depending on which option the Client chooses.
11. Completion Timeframes
Client understands, agrees and acknowledges that NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC does not guarantee a time frame for completion of ANY website. This is in part because it is difficult to complete a website without design approvals and participation from the Client. In addition, if the Client continues to submit additional content throughout the development process, or requests additional modifications to the site design, the completion time frame (and price) is increased. Other factors that may influence the completion date of a website include, but are not limited to, complexity of Client’s project(s), availability of NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC personnel, accounting status of Client’s account, etc.
If Client does not respond to NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC communications and, as a result, NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC is not able to start or complete the website, Client is still responsible for all fees incurred including, but not limited to, design purchase price, set-up fees, enhancements purchased and monthly hosting charges that begin accruing from date of sale. If Client’s website requires custom programming, functionality, flash, e-commerce or the use of a database, the overall development time will be extended.
12. Client Approval
Client is responsible for testing the functionality of the website upon NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s request for approval, and notification that the website has been completed. This includes, but is not limited to, functionality of all website pages, database, e-commerce store, payment functions, galleries, forums etc.
Client website may be posted live as soon as the website design is completed by NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC. Additional features, such as custom database programming, flash programming, etc., will be added to the site as they are completed. The website may be posted live within 30 days from purchase if NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC is required to complete content and design without complete Client input or content from Client.
The Client understands and agrees that if the Client does not respond within 5 business days to NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s request for approval and notification that the website has been completed and taken live, the website along with the functionality of the website and services rendered, will be deemed to be approved by the Client and Client agrees services have been rendered and the functionality of the website has been tested and approved by the Client.
The Client understands and agrees that if the Client does not respond to requests for missing information a final notification will be sent to the Client. If the Client does not respond within 5 business days to NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s notification or requests for missing information, the website, along with the functionality of the website and the services rendered, will be deemed to be approved by the Client, and the website will be taken live with the missing information “as-is” or “under construction”.
In the event that NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC completes all of the work per the original sale and database write ups, NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC reserves the right to move the site live and deem the work to be completed without Client’s permission if Client will not give approval of the work.
13. Scope of Work
Client understands that the website purchase and development includes a specific number of pages, features and/or functionality. The Client invoice and/or Database Specifications Summary lists the specific features, functionality and number of pages purchased. The website only includes those items purchased. If the Client desires additional features, functionality or pages client may request a price quote to purchase as additional enhancements to the website. Additional work requested by the Client outside of the scope of work purchased may be charged at an hourly rate or as specific enhancements.
14. Website Change Requests Before and After Website Goes Live
NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC agrees to build a website and/or database to specifications quoted per the original sale and original invoice. Any additions or changes requested outside of the scope of the original sale, either prior to the custom website going live, or after the site has gone live, will be billed at NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s standard hourly rate. NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC is not obligated to complete Client requests or changes outside of the scope of work on the original invoice. If NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC does not agree to Client requests or changes, Client is still obligated to pay all fees incurred and due.
NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC does not guarantee a time frame for completion of ANY custom database or custom programming completed by NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC or an NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC Partner. If database is completed by NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC, a custom “Database Specifications Summary” may be presented to the Client. NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC agrees to complete the database design according to the specifications outlined. If the Client does not object or respond to the Database Specifications Summary in writing within 5 business days it will be deemed to be accepted by the Client and NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC may proceed with development of the custom database as outlined. A Database Specifications Summary may not be presented to the Client for purchase of pre-built database modules and e-commerce store modules.
If Client requests changes to a pre-packaged database, pre-built database module, or e-commerce store module, changes are to be billed to Client at NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s standard hourly rate. There is no guarantee that changes made by NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC to a pre-packaged database, pre-built database module, or e-commerce store module will work. Client agrees charges are valid and agrees to pay for all fees incurred for Client’s requested changes to pre-packaged databases, pre-built databases modules, or e-commerce store modules. Once work has begun on a database or custom programming there is No Refund if cancelled.
Client is responsible for testing the functionality of the website upon NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s request for approval and notification that the website has been completed. This includes, but is not limited to, testing the functionality of the custom database or programming. Upon Client approval of the website to go live, Client agrees services have been rendered and functionality of website has been tested and approved by Client.
If the Client requests NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC to enter data into the database, the Client will be charged, and agrees to pay, for such data entry at NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s standard data entry rates.
Client may or may not be provided with instructions to input products into the store. If Client requests NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC to enter products into the store on Client’s behalf, the Client will be charged, and agrees to pay, for each product added to the store at NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s standard product-entry rates. Client is required to submit store content to NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC via NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s content spreadsheet. The e-commerce store module is pre-built and any changes to the look or functionality of the pre-built store require custom programming. The Client will be billed at NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s standard hourly rate for requested changes. (See Database/Programming)
Client is responsible for testing the functionality of the e-commerce store upon NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC’s request for approval and notification that the website has been completed. This includes but is not limited to testing the payment functionality. NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC is not responsible for functionality of third-party services such as, but not limited to, merchant account, or gateway. Upon Client approval of the website to go live, Client agrees services have been rendered and functionality of website has been tested and approved by Client.
17. Enhancements to Website
Client may purchase enhancements to the website at the time of initial sale or anytime thereafter. Enhancements to the website may include, but are not limited to, custom programming, database, flash, e-commerce, logos, galleries, rollovers, etc. Client’s requests for enhancements to the original sale will be due and billed separately and at the time of request. The monthly hosting fee will be adjusted according to the enhancements requested or the hosting package selected by Client.
Some enhancements such as, but not limited to, flash, custom programming, functionality, etc, may require that a specifications summary be presented to the Client. If the Client does not object to the specifications summary within 5 business days, the summary will be deemed to be accepted, and NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC will proceed with the development as outlined. Once work has begun on enhancements purchased by the Client there is No Refund if cancelled. Enhancements or additional services purchased after the initial sale are separate purchases and are in addition to and separate from the original sale. If a Client cancels an enhancement the original sale is not cancelled.
18. Expedited Services
While NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC does not guarantee a time frame for the completion of any custom website, it may offer an optional expedited service to Client for a fee. Expedited service is not available for all accounts and all requests for expedited service must be approved by NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC at its sole discretion. Client understands and agrees that Client’s use of expedited service does not guarantee that Client’s website including its corresponding design, enhancements, databases, e-commerce stores, flash, etc, will be completed more quickly than they would be without the use of the expedited service. The expedited service fee only ensures that NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC will make reasonable efforts to more quickly assign designers and programmers to the account in an effort to facilitate development than would be the case under the ordinary developmental process.
The successful use of expedited service is contingent upon Client’s timely acceptance of the Terms of Service, payment of any and all fees due, submission of content through the online web center and acceptance of any project specification documents prepared by NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC and Client’s timely cooperation with NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC in any solicitation for information related to the website’s development.
If expedited service is offered to Client by NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC, Client may be presented with an estimated date of completion. Client understands and agrees that such estimated dates of completion are estimates only and may apply only to one particular element of the website, i.e. database, flash, e-commerce, design, and not necessarily to multiple elements of the website or to the website collectively. Under no circumstances will NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC guarantee the respective portion or portions of the website subject to the estimated date of completion to be completed sooner than the estimated date of completion. Should circumstances arise that make it impossible to complete the portion or portions of the website that are subject to the estimated date of completion by the estimated date of completion, including but not limited to Client failure to provide NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC with requested information in a timely manner, NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC reserves the right to change the estimated date of completion accordingly or to cancel the expedited services and refund a portion of the expedited service fee to Client. In no case shall the portion of the expedited service fee to be refunded be greater than fifty percent (50%) of the expedited service fee. Regardless of whether work is completed by the estimated date of completion, Client remains liable to NETCOM LOGISTICS LLC for any and all other charges related to the website’s development.
19. Additional Services
