Terms of Service & Agreement

Clients who accept any project or work quote from Media Happi
agree to the following terms:

Job and Project Quotes

By accepting any quote provided by Media Happi, you hereby agree to pay the total balance upon the agreed terms.

Quotes provided by Media Happi are initial estimates for the projects and are subject to change and/or negotiation before agreement. All quotes are valid for 60 days unless specified otherwise. Once agreed upon by both parties and work has begun, any additional major changes will require an additional estimate and fee. Media Happi reserves the right to adjust its pricing at any time.

Recurring Payments

All clients using the online billing platforms provided by Media Happi are subject to any and all applicable terms and conditions for such platforms as well.

Once an initial payment has been made on a recurring payment plan, Media Happi reserves the right to automatically charge the funds through the last payment method on file if not paid by the due date of the payment.

Web Design clients may pay Media Happi for one time website design and setup or opt to host their site through Media Happi for a monthly fee negotiable with terms of support, maintenance, and updates.

Interest & Fees

Once Media Happi applies any convenience or other fees to a late or payment plan order, the rate is locked in for the remaining balance. Paying the remaining balance will not result in a deduction or removal of any fees or charges unless otherwise specified.

Should Media Happi incur any additional fees due to time frame delay by the client, those fees will be passed onto the client and their invoice. Such fees include but are not limited to CRM integration costs, API usage fees, software costs, etc.

Payment Options

Media Happi accepts all major credit and debit cards online or over the phone. Should a client wish to submit a payment via check, the request must be approved in advance. All check payments to Media Happi must be made payable to “Media Happi, LLC” to be accepted. Failure to follow these procedures may result in the payment not being accepted or delivered which could cause late fees to be incurred.

Late Payments

A client automatically enters default on a payment within 48 hours after it’s due date. Any client who has not made their minimum payment by that point is then applied a late fee of $35.00 USD per month or 10% of their payment balance, whichever is greater.

After a client has been in default for 90 days, the outstanding balance may be sent to collections and/or served legally for the remaining balance at the clients expense.

For overdue services invoices, Media Happi reserves the right to discontinue service after 30 days until the balance is satisfied, late fees will continue to be applied. After 90 days overdue Media Happi reserves the right to securely remove any files from our servers at the expense of the client. Should the client have a history of overdue balances, Media Happi reserves the right to discontinue service immediately, while fees are applied, until the balance is satisfied.

Content Ownership & Rights

Media Happi reserves the right to use any current clients logos and branding on their website. In addition, Media Happi reserves the right to use any logos, branding, or exports and screenshots of our work on our website, marketing materials, and social media unless otherwise specified or requested to be exempt by the client.

Once a client’s job is completed and paid, the content becomes property of the client and will be released upon request. Media Happi will only access or adjust content for the sole purpose of client requested work, minor updates and security for internally hosted projects, and collecting analytic data. Should a client wish to host their site outside of Media Happi, the Externally Hosted Sites section will apply.

Media Happi reserves the right to place text, graphic, or animation branding on the bottom or end of a client’s project to accept credit for the work and advertise to potential clients unless otherwise specified or requested to be exempt by the client.

Any content, images, videos, graphics, or other provided on behalf of or by the client are assumed to either be royalty free or files they have the permission to use. Media Happi is not liable for any legal repercussions of stolen or copyrighted content provided by the client.

Externally Hosted Sites

Media Happi provides hosting packages which encompass many safety and security needs. If a client wishes to host a site developed by Media Happi on a third party or private server the following applies:

Media Happi will develop the site on their servers and hosting until complete, at which point the final payment will be due to release the site and its contents. Payment plan options are not available on sites hosted outside of Media Happi.

Once a project is paid for, Media Happi will turn over all content, logins, files, databases, and directories to the new owner. They may then upload them to their server or hire Media Happi to do so. Media Happi is not liable for any file loss, migration, compatibility issues, or broken links as a result of launching a site on a third party hosting location.

If a site specified for external hosting is completed and paid in full then the client has 14 days to migrate the site to their external hosting or the site may be subject to deletion.

Should a client choose to hire Media Happi for a website migration, full access credentials must be supplied in order to do so within 14 days. Refunds will not be given for unsuccessful migrations due to incorrect credentials. Migration services include one hour of work, unless specified otherwise. Additional time needed for navigating hosting environments, attempting credentials, and bug fixes may result in additional charges.

Cancellation & Refunds

Once a project reaches its 50% mark on the original “Project Timeframe”, no additional payments will be available for cancellations.

Should a charge be processed incorrectly, the client must request a refund within 14 days from Media Happi or the funds will be placed on their account as a credit. Media Happi does not offer refunds. Any and all service terminations must be received in writing, in which receipt will be confirmed.

Proofs & Edits

Media Happi will issue a first, second, and third proof of your project prior to your final project unless otherwise specified. Should you continue to make changes there may be a delay in the finalization of your project.

Clients may submit as many changes as they seek fit on a standard time frame job. In the event of a rush job, after the third list of edits and changes has been submitted the client may then be additionally billed for each list of changes.

After 14 days, if a client has not communicated feedback or changes to Media Happi then their project will be marked as completed and additional edits may result in an additional cost or use of an applicable maintenance package.

For full service websites, if the client wishes, they may mark the project as complete and then begin using any included support and edits to complete the site’s changes.

Resellers

Media Happi permits the reselling, both contracted or white-labeled, of its services. In such an event, the reseller must notify Media Happi and sign a “Reseller Agreement” which binds them to additional terms as well as the ones included within this agreement.

Changes

Media Happi reserves the right to make changes to this “Client Terms of Service & Agreement” at any time. Should changes be made, Media Happi will notify all affected clients.

Should Media Happi alter any of the above terms for a project specific agreement, the adjusted terms will be listed on the clients quote. All other terms of this “Client Terms of Service & Agreement” will remain unaffected and in full effect unless otherwise specified.
