  1. Website Logistics.
    1. Set-Up.  Immediately upon purchase of a ReachSite, we will begin writing custom content for your website based on your business, products/services and goals for the website (the “Custom Content”), and designing your website based on the theme you select. We will schedule a consultation with one of our service professionals to take place after your purchase of a ReachSite to review the completed website. We will also send you multiple communications regarding the creation and set-up of your website, including a link to your completed website for review, and we ask that you provide any feedback or revisions within the requested timeframes.  However, if you are unable to review the materials or the completed website within the requested timeframes, we will deliver to you the website so you can enjoy its benefits immediately, and any revisions can be made later after your review.
    2. Registration Information. During the set-up process, you will provide ReachLocal with various information required to create your website. You acknowledge and agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about your business and agree to promptly update the information if any of it changes.  If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete, or if ReachLocal has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete, ReachLocal may terminate its obligations hereunder without any requirement or obligation to refund to you any amounts you may have paid ReachLocal.   
    3. Domains.  You are solely responsible for maintaining your internet domain name, including all renewals and paying all applicable registration and maintenance fees.  In addition, you represent and warrant that you own all rights to such domain name or, alternatively, that you have the right to use the domain name in connection with your website. 

       

  2. Fees.
    1. Description of Fees.  You agree to pay the fees set forth on the Order Form.
    2. Timing of Payment.  You will pay all amounts in advance of ReachLocal delivering the ReachSite website.

You understand and acknowledge that all amounts owed must be paid in advance and that, in addition to being in breach of your contractual obligations, your ReachSite website will not be delivered if full payment is not made.    
 

  1. Privacy Matters
    1. Privacy Policy. We recommend that each ReachSite website have a privacy policy that complies with applicable legal requirements.  You may provide your own privacy policy or we may provide a template privacy policy for you to use as a guide only.  
    2. If you elect to use the ReachLocal template, you must carefully review and confirm it is accurate and adequate for your specific intentions and uses. In particular, but without limitation, the standard privacy policy does not include an exhaustive list of elements that may be required by law or by service provider guidelines (by way of example only, the standard privacy policy does not contain elements that may be required regarding certain health care or financial information). The privacy policy template should NOT be construed as legal advice or used as a substitute for seeking professional legal advice. The drafters and providers of the template are not responsible for the use of the template or any information or absence of information in the template.  Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for ensuring that your privacy policy is adequate for your unique needs and that failure to do so may expose you and ReachLocal to liability which you shall fully indemnify.
    3. Disclosure of Information. In addition, you understand and acknowledge that we may disclose such of your information, including your contact and account information, to courts, law enforcement authorities and/or other relevant third parties, when such disclosure is necessary or advisable, at our sole discretion, to conduct an investigation, respond to a third party or law enforcement subpoena or court order, bring legal action or pursue other relief when you or a third party are or may be: (i) violating our terms and conditions of use; (ii) causing injury or other harm to, or otherwise violating our property or other legal rights, or those of other users or third parties; or (iii) violating federal, state, local, or other applicable law.
       
  2. Legal Requirements. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for providing any disclaimers, notices or other content that you may be required to include on your website due to legal, licensing or other requirements specific to your profession, business, location or any other requirements. Similarly, if you are prohibited from making certain statements on your website due to legal, licensing or other requirements, it is your sole responsibility to inform ReachLocal of such limitations and confirm your website is compliance in connection with each required approval. For example, if you are a lawyer and your bar rules require you to include certain disclaimers on advertising materials, it is your responsibility to provide such disclaimers.

     

  3. ReachLocal Materials.
    1. Ownership. Other than any Client Content (as described below), (i)  any text, images, logos, trademarks, service marks, promotional materials, product or service information, photos, audio and video clips and other information provided by ReachLocal for your ReachSite website (collectively, the “ReachLocal Materials”) are owned by ReachLocal or other parties that have licensed their material or provided services to ReachLocal, and are protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property laws.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.  REACHLOCAL PROVIDES THE REACHSITE SERVICES ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND AND WITHOUT ANY GUARANTEE OF CONTINUOUS OR UNINTERRUPTED AVAILABILITY. IF THE REACHSITE SERVICES ARE INTERRUPTED OR DELAYED, REACHLOCAL’S SOLE OBLIGATION WILL BE TO RESTORE SUCH REACHSITE SERVICES AS SOON AS PRACTICABLE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, REACHLOCAL DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.  REACHLOCAL WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR  ANY:  (i)  ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT OR INFORMATION; (ii) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF ANY OF THE REACHSITE SERVICES; (iii) UNAUTHORISED ACCESS TO OR USE OF REACHLOCAL’S SERVERS OR OF ANY PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION; (iv) BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED ON OR THROUGH THE REACHSITE SERVICES BY ANY THIRD PARTY; (v) LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT POSTED, E-MAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE REACHSITE SERVICES; OR (viii) MATTERS BEYOND REACHLOCAL’S REASONABLE CONTROL.

  2. NON EXCLUDABLE CONDITIONS. CERTAIN LAWS, INCLUDING THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW, IMPLY TERMS AND CONDITIONS INTO CONTRACTS FOR THE SUPPLY OF GOODS OR SERVICES THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED (FOR EXAMPLE, THAT SERVICES MUST BE PROVIDED WITH DUE CARE AND SKILL AND FIT FOR ANY SPECIFIED PURPOSE) (“NON-EXCLUDABLE CONDITION”).  IN THE EVENT THAT A TERM, CONDITION OR WARRANTY IS IMPLIED BY LAW INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND REACHLOCAL BREACHES THAT NON-EXCLUDABLE CONDITION, REACHLOCAL’S LIABILITY WILL BE THE MINIMUM PERMITTED UNDER SUCH LAW.

     

  3. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY.
    1. NO CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.  TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT OR WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY), OR FOR INTERRUPTED COMMUNICATIONS, LOSS OF USE, LOST BUSINESS, LOST DATA OR LOST PROFITS (EVEN IF SUCH PARTY WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY OF THE FOREGOING), ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT.  THE FOREGOING EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY WILL NOT APPLY TO (I) EITHER PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, INCLUDING ANY AMOUNTS PAYABLE IN CONNECTION THEREWITH; (II) TO YOUR CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS AND/OR (III) EITHER PARTY’S WILLFUL MISCONDUCT.
    2. LIMITATION ON DAMAGES.  TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL REACHLOCAL’S CUMULATIVE, AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY EXCEED THE AMOUNTS RECEIVED BY REACHLOCAL FROM YOU FOR THE REACHSITE WEBSITE. IN LIEU OF REFUND, REACHLOCAL SHALL BE PERMITTED, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TO PROVIDE “MAKE-GOOD” SERVICES, PROVIDED SUCH “MAKE-GOOD” SERVICES ARE PROVIDED WITHIN A REASONABLE PERIOD OF TIME AFTER THE LIABILITY HAS ACCRUED.
