After the Initial Subscription Term, the Service Fees are subject to change and may be changed upon notice to you at least sixty (60) days prior to the start of any Renewal Subscription Term (as defined below).

Where a price change applies to you, we will charge or invoice you under the new price structure, starting with the next Billing Period in the Subscription Term. You may downgrade your subscription only after your initial Subscription Term but this will require a 10-day downgrade notice sent by email to or your Global Presence Marketing account manager. You should purchase the appropriate tier of Service for your anticipated needs.
  2. Fee Adjustments in the Next Billing Period. If you exceed your Billable Users in a Billing Period, then your Subscription Fee will increase at the beginning of the next Billing Period up to tier price (as set forth on our Pricing Sheet) which corresponds with the Billable Users from the prior Billing Period. Any increase in Subscription Fee in the current Billing Period will also be charged to your next Billing Period. This process will continue for each Billing Period during the Subscription Term.  
  3. Payment by credit card is standard. If you are paying by credit card, you authorize us to charge your credit card or bank account for all fees payable during the Subscription Term. You further authorize us to use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to such third party. If newly starting services with Global Presence Marketing, services will not be activated until initial payment has been made.
  4. Payment Information. You will keep your contact information, billing information and credit card information (where applicable) up to date. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are non-refundable, except as specifically provided for in this Agreement.

The campaign deliverables will be emailed to you after your onboarding call is complete ("Initial Subscription Term"). If your setup fee was waived due to a promotion and decide to cancel before your initial subscription term is complete or we are unable to collect a payment, you will now be liable for paying the setup fee that was initially waived.
  2. Renewal Subscription Term.

When you choose to pause your campaign you will be required to provide a restart campaign date. If you cannot provide a restart campaign date, that will not be considered a notice of non-renewal, so you must successfully send an email to or your Global Presence Marketing account manager no fewer than thirty (10) days before the end of the Subscription Term in order to officially end your subscription and no longer be billed from Global Presence Marketing.
  5. Greater Than 30 Day Pause Subscription Term.

These Terms of Business should be read in conjunction with the Project Definition sent to You simultaneously (“Project Definition”), which incorporates these Terms of Business.  The Project Definition sets out, amongst other things, the services Global Presence will provide to You (“Works”) and the fees which will be charged (“Fees”).  Additional defined terms are set out in the Project Definition. Global Presence aims to offer a friendly and efficient service and exercise reasonable skill, care, and diligence in carrying out the Works.

 

These Terms of Business come into force with immediate effect upon Your first instructions or order, and these Terms of Business will apply to any current and future instructions or commission that You are kind enough to give Global Presence and to any specific Works referred to in the current or a future Project Definition.

 

These Business Terms and the Project Definition constitute the entire agreement between Global Presence and You regarding the Works.  Any additional work not specified in the Project Definition must be authorized by a written change order signed by You and Global Presence and may result in changes to Fees and Disbursements.

 

3. Your Brief

 

You, as Global Presence client, represent, undertake and warrant to Global Presence that, to the best of Your knowledge:  (i) any instructions are given and materials supplied by You will be accurate and complete and will not cause Global Presence to infringe the rights (including intellectual property rights) of any third party or the laws or regulations (including data protection legislation) of any country and (ii) You have complied and will comply with the Minimum Client Requirements set out in the Project Definition.

 

Global Presence and You agree to work together to complete the Works promptly. Global Presence agrees to work expeditiously to complete the Works in line with the Timeframe agreed in the Project Proposal emailed to you, however, this Timeframe is dependent on Global Presence being provided with Your continued cooperation to approve Works at various stages. Global Presence cannot be held responsible for any loss incurred. You (or any third party instructed by You) have not provided clear and complete instructions within any given time limit and with sufficient notice.

 

If You request changes to the Works Global Presence, reserves the right to revise the Project Definition. If the Works are shortened, delayed, canceled, or terminated early by You, the final invoice will include the balance of the Fees for providing the Works plus any reasonable costs and disbursements incurred by Global Presence due to Your acts or omissions. For example, You shall be liable for the costs and disbursements incurred by Global Presence for prebooked fieldwork, which is delayed, not used, or not fully used.

 

Global Presence recommends that You retain copies and backups of all materials, data, or information provided to and from Global Presence.

 

4. Subcontracting

 

Global Presence reserves the right to assign subcontractors to this project to ensure the right fit for the job and timely completion. Global Presence shall be the primary obligor concerning such sub-contractors.

 

Global Presence is only responsible for the quality of the service provided by subcontractors if those subcontractors have been selected and paid for directly by Global Presence. If You designate a specific sub-contractor, then Global Presence shall not be responsible for the accuracy, completeness, or quality of the work of that sub-contractor.

 

5. Fees and Disbursements

 

Global Presence Fees are exclusive of tax which must, therefore, be added at the current rate if you're not tax-exempt.  This will be indicated on invoices.  Global Presence Fees are also exclusive of disbursements (including travel), therefore charged in addition.  Disbursements include payments made or incurred on Your behalf and miscellaneous office expenses such as printing, traveling, and out-of-pocket expenses.  Mileage will be charged in line with IRS guidelines. All expenses must be pre-approved by the client within the agreed-upon in the project's actual and projected budget expenses.

 

Payment of Fees for Works shall be on delivery of the Works. Any Works provided over more than one calendar month will be subject to invoice at the start of each calendar month, with the final invoice raised on the delivery of the last works. All invoices shall be due on the invoice date and shall be subject to payment on that date.

 

If You dispute, deem incorrect, or inaccurate any invoice, contract, or agreement Global Presence must be notified, in writing, within 48 hours of receipt. Failure to do so renders any future claim inadmissible.

 

For Global Presence to remain in business, payments must be made promptly. A ten-dollar additional fee will be incurred if payment is not received within ten (10) days of the due date. If an amount remains delinquent thirty (30) days after its due date, an additional five percent (5%) interest will be added for each month of delinquency from the date of the invoice. Global Presence reserves the right to suspend work without notice until Final Payment is made. Where debt collection or proceedings prove necessary, You agree to pay all fees and costs incurred by that process.

 

6. Confidentiality and Intellectual Property

 

All information You provide Global Presence will be regarded as confidential to the extent that it is not in the public domain. Still, You should advise Global Presence if any information is particularly sensitive. Global Presence will not divulge any confidential information obtained from You otherwise than by Your instructions.

 

You unconditionally guarantee that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork (including all associated intellectual property) furnished by You (or on Your behalf) to Global Presence for inclusion in the Works are owned by You or that You have permission from the rightful owner to use each of these elements, and will hold harmless, indemnify, and defend Global Presence and its subcontractors from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements furnished by You.

 

In the first instance, Global Presence owns intellectual property rights (including but not limited to copyright and database rights) in all Works.  All intellectual property rights owned by Global Presence in finished, approved Works created specifically for You will be assigned to You automatically on receipt by Global Presence of the Final Payment of Fees in cleared funds.  All Intellectual property rights in third-party materials are owned by those third parties and will be licensed to You on the terms set out in the Project Definition.

 

Global Presence and its subcontractors retain the right to display Works, graphics, and other design elements as examples of their work in their respective portfolios (including online).

 

7. Termination

 

Either party may terminate this engagement upon one month's notice unless in an agreement as invoice or quote states.  The notice must be provided in writing. Global Presence will use its reasonable endeavors to complete any Works in progress, and Global Presence will remain entitled to payment for completing those Works.

 

Either party may terminate this engagement immediately for a material breach by the other which is incapable of remedy or, if capable of remedy, is not remedied within 45 days of notification being given to the defaulting party.

 

For a good reason and upon reasonable notice, Global Presence reserves the right to terminate Global Presence engagement without further liability on Global Presence. This will be confirmed to You in writing if requested. “Good reasons” include if You: do not give Global Presence instructions within a reasonable period; do not pay promptly any request for money on account, or do not pay a bill within the due period.

 

8. Warranties and Liability

 

All conclusions, recommendations, forecasts, reports, letters, or other communications, whether oral or written, provided by Global Presence (together, the “Recommendations”) are made in good faith and based on information available to Global Presence at the time whether from You or information in the public domain and the validity of such Recommendations will depend, amongst other factors, on Your effective cooperation and the quality of the information made available by You. No warranty or representation, express or implied, is given as to the Recommendations provided by Global Presence. You shall be responsible for the proper adaptation of such Recommendations to Your own circumstances.

 

All Recommendations given by Global Presence are for Your use only and are not to be disclosed or reproduced to third parties without the prior written consent of Global Presence.

 

Global Presence shall not be liable for any consequential or indirect loss suffered by You whether such loss arises from a breach of contract or tort or in any other way (including losses arising indirectly or consequentially from Global Presence negligence). Compensation for any direct losses arising under this agreement shall be limited to the value of the current Project Definition.

 

You and Global Presence acknowledge that the Fees payable under these Terms of Business have been determined based on these limitations of liability and reflect the division of risks set out in these Terms of Business and that, accordingly, the division of risk is agreed by the parties to be fair and reasonable in the circumstances.

 

If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason is unenforceable. That provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

If you choose, you may contribute website themes ("Custom Themes") to the Service for use by other users. You hereby grant and agree to grant us an exclusive, perpetual, sublicensable, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free right and license to use, copy, modify, and create derivative works of any Custom Themes contributed by you to the Service, including the HTML code and associated media assets. The prices listed on our plans are for the customization of our pre-designed templates. The plans allow the pricing of the design to be cost-effective. If the client seeks an original design, the cost will be $75 per hour for an average projected timeline of 20-60 hours.

27. Designer Platform Terms

If you use our Template Platform Service to design a website (a “Client Website”) for a third party (your “Client”), your use of the Service shall be subject to the additional terms outlined in this Section 16.

A.    Your relationship with your Client is strictly between you and the Client. We will not be a party to any agreement you have with your Client. The manner and means that you choose to perform your services are in your sole discretion and control; however, you agree to perform these services in a timely and professional manner, consistent with industry practice and in conformance with these Terms.

B.    You accept full responsibility for all Client Websites under your account and each Client Website’s adherence to these Terms.

C.     While we intend to allow you to resell the service under a private label, this private label is in no way guaranteed. We will in no way be held responsible for any failure to maintain its private label.

D.    In the event your Client contacts us; we will direct them to contact you. If you fail to support your Client, and we receive a request from your Client stating that you have not been responsive, we reserve the right to support your Client directly.

E.     Payments for your use of the Designer Platform Service are calculated on a per-website basis. Each Client Website under your account published live to a Client’s domain will incur monthly service charges. These service charges are billed to the credit card on file for your Global Presence account.

F.     Service charges are billed each month for the upcoming month’s service, based on the total service charges of all Client Websites. If a new Client Website is published mid-month, a pro-rated amount will be included on your next month’s invoice.

G.    No refunds will be given for any days remaining in your current billing cycle.

H.    As the account owner, you understand and agree that you are ultimately responsible for payment for every Client Website under your account. If, at any time, the billing obligations of any Client Website are not met, we will have the right to disable the Client Website until the billing obligation is met.

28. Resale of Service

You will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell, or exploit any portion of the Service without our express written permission, which may be in the form of a separate written agreement with Global Presence (such as the Global Presence Cloud Agreement).

Designers often use Global Presence to design websites for a third party. Such use is explicitly permitted under the Designer Platform terms above. Should you design websites for third parties on any other version of Global Presence other than the Designer Platform, such sites must each have their own account controlled by the third party, and you may not group multiple client sites under one account owned by you.

29. Domain Name Registration, Domain Name Cancellation, and Change of Registrar

For the domain name registration services (the “Domain Services”) provided to you by Global Presence, the following terms and conditions also apply (the “Domain Terms”). Your use of the Domain Services provided by Global Presence serves as your consent to these terms. Some service packages include Global Presence registering an Internet domain name or renewing your existing domain name (the “Domain Name”) on your behalf. To procure and/or maintain domains, Global Presence will act only as the agent between you and the domain name service provider responsible for domain name allocation (the “Registrar”), which will be Enom.com. All new registrations and subsequent renewals of those registrations will therefore also be subject to the Enom.com terms and conditions located at https://www.enom.com/terms/privacy.aspx. Global Presence reserves the right to utilize another domain name service provider at any time, in which case the terms and conditions of such organization will apply complementarily to these Domain Terms, and such other domain name service provider shall be deemed a “Registrar” for purposes of these Terms.

Global Presence may provide one (1) free domain name for up to one year, with a new purchase of an annual or bi-annual subscription plan. The domain will be included for the lifetime of your Global Presence account. The domain will be registered in your name and is yours to keep, as long as you cover any applicable domain registration fees following the first year. When signing up for a new plan, the free domain name only applies to certain top-level domains (e.g., .com, .net, and .org).

You are responsible for providing correct and complete data regarding the domain name holder (“Registrant”) and the administrative contact when registering the domain name. The technical contact in all cases will be Global Presence, Inc. Before applying for a domain name; it is your responsibility to check that the domain name does not violate the rights of any third party or contravene any applicable law, rule, or regulation. We may defer activation of a domain name until payment of the agreed fees for the registration services has been received. Global Presence is in no position to influence the allocation of the domain name by the Registrar. We can neither guarantee that the requested domain names will be allocated to you and/or that allocated domain names are free of third-party rights nor guarantee their continued existence. Any information we provide regarding the availability of a domain name is based on the data provided by third parties and only refers to the time that information is requested. The domain will not be deemed as allocated before registration of the domain in the name of you, the Registrant, and its entry in the database of the Registrar.

The initial registration term for purchased domains may vary, and such registration will auto-renew for successive 12-month periods. You will be charged for auto-renewal forty-five (45) calendar days before your domain expires (even if that date differs from your Global Presence website subscription renewal date). You can, of course, opt out of auto-renewal by turning off the auto-renew option in your settings at any time before the auto-renewal takes effect. Each purchased domain name is registered in your name and is yours to keep, as long as you pay the applicable fees. If you purchase a new domain, or renew an existing domain, and cancel your purchase within the first thirty (30) days by contacting https://globalpresence.org, you may receive a full refund. Your right and title to your domain name allow you to transfer a purchased domain to another domain provider; however, you will not be eligible for a refund of registration fees paid to Global Presence for transferred domains. Regardless of the Registrant's identity or any other contact information in your domain name records, any domain name registered through Global Presence using your Global Presence account is covered by these Terms.

Maintaining accurate and current billing information is a mandatory condition of maintaining your Global Presence account. Such data must include the full and real name of the Registrant, a physical mailing address (PO boxes or anonymous addresses are not permissible), a valid email address, and a telephone number. If this information changes, you must immediately inform us of this change by updating it online. Please note that if your billing information, including your current credit card information, is not current, we will not renew your Domain Services, and they may subsequently expire.

Subject to these Terms and those of the Registrar, you may transfer all domain names registered through us to another domain name service provider by following the online instructions provided by Global Presence. Should we, due to failure on the part of you, the account holder, or the new domain name service provider, be unable to make the domain transfer to your new domain name service provider, we are expressly entitled to have the canceled domain name deleted by the relevant domain name service provider after the cancellation date has lapsed. We will not be liable to you or any third party for such deletion. We reserve the right to allow domain transfers only if you have settled all undisputed pending claims with us.

It may not always be possible to recover a domain name after it has expired. Global Presence has sole discretion in determining when a domain name can be renewed post-expiry and what applicable fees. If you forfeit a domain name for non-payment, Global Presence will have the right, in its sole discretion, to (a) register and use the domain name for its own purpose; (b) sell or transfer the domain name to a third party; or (c) delete the domain name and allow any new registrant anywhere in the world to register the domain name anew. Further, you agree that Global Presence may charge the credit card you have on file with Global Presence to recover any amounts outstanding on your account.

On certain occasions, domain name registrations may become the subject of a legal challenge. If Global Presence is made a party to any legal action by one of your domain name registrations, you agree to be responsible for all of Global Presence’s costs and legal fees and indemnify and hold Global Presence harmless from any action. If Global Presence is notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your domain name, Global Presence may, at its sole discretion: (a) lock or suspend your ability to use, make modifications to, or transfer your registration records; and/or (b) deposit control of your registration record with the appropriate judicial entity by supplying a registrar certificate from us.

You must notify us immediately if you lose the rights to a domain name registered by Global Presence on your behalf.

30. Email Marketing Service

The following terms and conditions also apply for the email marketing services provided directly to you by Global Presence (the “Email Marketing Service”). Your use of the Email Marketing Service serves as your consent to these terms. Global Presence may suspend or terminate your access to and use the Email Marketing Service if you do not comply with these terms.

Your use of the Email Marketing Service must comply with all applicable domestic and international laws. This includes the laws applicable to you and to Global Presence and all recipients to whom you intend to send emails (each a “Recipient”). Examples of applicable laws include laws relating to spam or unsolicited commercial email (hereinafter “Spam” or “UCE”), privacy, security, obscenity, defamation, intellectual property, pornography, terrorism, homeland security, gambling, child protection, and other applicable laws. It is your responsibility to know and understand the laws applicable to your use of the Email Marketing Service and the emails you generate and send through the Email Marketing Service. Your use of the Email Marketing Service must also comply with the Privacy Notice applicable to the Email Marketing Service. Global Presence’s Privacy Notice is available here.

You are solely responsible for your products and services and any other promotion and Content contained in or referred to in your emails sent through the Email Marketing Service. You agree to use the Email Marketing Service lawful, safe, and professional manner, consistent with industry best practices, including keeping reliable records. You are solely responsible for all statements you make and all user assistance, warranty, and support of your products and services.

Your use of the Email Marketing Service must follow all applicable guidelines established by Global Presence. The guidelines below are examples of practices that may violate these Terms when generating or sending email or messages through the Email Marketing Service:

You will not:

A.    Use the Email Marketing Service in violation of Global Presence’s Terms of Service or any law applicable to you or your Recipients;

B.    Use the Email Marketing Service to send Spam. You must ensure that all Recipients have explicitly granted permission to receive emails from you by affirmatively opting in to receive those emails. All emails and messages sent utilizing the Email Marketing Service must comply with our Anti-Spam Policy, as outlined below:

               i.         Global Presence has a no tolerance Spam policy and does not knowingly and intentionally do business with any user or company that participates in sending Spam/UCE. We do not sell or exchange personal information from our opt-in lists.

             ii.         An email is Spam if, among other things: (a) the Recipient’s personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients; (b) the Recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; and (c) the transmission and reception of the message appears to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.

           iii.         Spam is an issue of consent, not content. A Recipient should “affirmatively opt-in” or expressly consent to receive the message, either in response to a clear and conspicuous request or at the recipient’s own initiative.

            The U.S. CAN-SPAM Act regulates and establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have you stop emailing them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. Other international regulations and laws also apply to electronic marketing. While we cannot give legal advice, we encourage you to become familiar with these laws, especially if you live in or mail to recipients outside the U.S.

              v.         If you receive Spam complaints or run into compliance problems, or if Global Presence identifies a potentially problematic contact list, we will first ask questions to try to understand your business as well as your marketing goals. If we determine that a list is not consent-based or too old or problematic to work with, we will require it to be removed from your account. We may ask you to find another service provider in certain instances because our goals are not compatible.

            vi.         Please refer to our Email Marketing FAQ located in the Help Center for further guidance on becoming a responsible mailer and the additional ways that Global Presence helps protect against sending unwanted or unsolicited emails.

          vii.         If you feel a Global Presence user is sending an unsolicited email, you can report it to us by sending it to .

C.     Use the Email Marketing Service to request, collect or send any non-public or personally identifiable information about another user or any other person without their express prior written consent (or the parent’s consent in the case of a minor), illegal information, or any other information you do not have the right to request, collect or distribute;

D.    Use the Email Marketing Service to send email campaigns that link to or display pornography, other sexually explicit content, illegal goods or services, or any other Content that Global Presence deems inappropriate in its sole discretion;

E.     Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or image, or other Content that is not owned by you or legally licensed to you, or is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, or otherwise objectionable which may violate another’s right of privacy or publicity;

F.     Send through the Email Marketing Service any unethical, false, or misleading advertising, promotions, or sales efforts and practices;

G.    Post or transmit any materials that contain a virus or corrupted data;

H.    Use purchased or rented email lists;

I.      Use third party email addresses, domain names, or mail servers without proper permission;

J.      Send emails to non-specific addresses (e.g., or ) or distribution lists, newsgroups, publicly available press or media addresses, or purchased email addresses;

K.     Send emails that result in an unacceptable number of Spam or UCE complaints (even if the emails themselves were not actually Spam or UCE);

L.     Disable or fail to include a working “unsubscribe” link in every email, which allows the Recipient/s to remove themselves from your mailing list. Each such link must remain operational for at least 60 days after the date on which you send the message, and you agree that you will not remove, disable or attempt to remove or disable the link;

M.   Disable or fail to comply with any request from a Recipient to be removed from your mailing list within seven (7) calendar days of receipt of the request. You cannot charge a fee, require the recipient to give you any personally identifiable information beyond an email address, or make the recipient take any step other than sending a reply email or visiting a single page on an Internet website as a condition for honoring an unsubscribe request. As required under the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act and other applicable laws, you acknowledge that you are responsible for maintaining and honoring the list of unsubscribe requests following termination of your Global Presence account, for any reason whatsoever;

N.    Disguise any email's origin or subject matter or falsify or manipulate the originating email address, subject line, headers, or transmission path information for any email. For any email or message sent by you using the Email Marketing Service, (a) the “from” line must accurately and in a non-deceptive manner identify your identity or your organization’s identity; and (b) the “subject” line of your email must relate to the email’s actual content and must not contain any deceptive content regarding the overall subject matter of the email message. You agree that you are the sole or designated sender of any email you send through the Email Marketing Service, according to any law or act applicable to your use of the Email Marketing Service (e.g., U.S. CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation, S.C. 2010, c. 23 and Directive 2003/58/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 July 2002), and as such you are required to comply with such laws and any other laws in other jurisdictions that apply to your use of the Email Marketing Service, and be responsible for any violation of any such applicable laws.

O.    Fail to include in each email your valid physical mailing address (which if you are located in the United States, maybe a valid post office box meeting the registration requirements established by the United States Postal Service) or a link to that information. For Recipients based in the EU, each email must additionally include the sender’s business registration number and VAT ID or a link to that information;

P.     Include “junk mail,” “chain letters,” “pyramid schemes,” incentives (e.g., coupons, discounts, awards, or other incentives) or other material in any email that encourages a Recipient to forward the email to another recipient; or

Q.    Fail to comply with export and import regulations for the U.S. and other countries.

Some industries yield higher than normal abuse rates for Spam. Thus, the Email Marketing Service may not be used on behalf of certain industries and senders. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

               i.         Pharmaceutical products;

             ii.         Work from home, make money online, “get rich schemes”, and lead generation opportunities;

           iii.         Online trading, day trading tips, or stock market-related content;

            iv.         Mortgage and loan content;

              v.         Nutritional, herbal, and vitamin supplements;

            vi.         Gambling services, products, or tips;

          vii.         Multi-level marketing;

            ix.         Credit repair and get out of debt opportunities; and

              x.         Counterfeit or “knock off” products appearing to be another brand.

36. Agreement to Arbitrate; Class Waiver

We want to address your concerns or issues before filing a claim against Global Presence. Please contact us at https://globalpresence.org. We'll contact you by email to informally resolve the dispute. You or Global Presence may start a formal dispute resolution process if a dispute is not resolved within 30 days of your submission.

YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND YOU WILL NOT BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION (E.G., CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS).

Any claim relating to these Terms that is not resolved through our informal process, or as set forth below, will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) administered by the American Arbitration Association (https://www.adr.org) according to this Section and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. The Arbitrator shall be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are enforceable, unconscionable, or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel. Subject to applicable jurisdictional requirements, you may elect to pursue your claim in your local small-claims court rather than through arbitration so long as your matter remains in small claims court and proceeds only on an individual (non-class or non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. If you are a consumer bringing a claim relating to a transaction intended for personal, household, or family use, any arbitration hearing will occur within the county where you reside. Otherwise, any arbitration hearing will occur in Broward, Florida, or another mutually agreeable location. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the Arbitrator may do so only concerning the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party’s claim. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect in any other case or arbitration. Global Presence will reimburse the arbitration fees due to the American Arbitration Association for individual arbitrations brought by this section for all claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the Arbitrator determines that your claims were frivolous. If you prevail on any claim you are legally entitled to attorney’s fees, you may seek to recover those fees from the arbitrator. For any claim you seek relief, we will not seek to have you pay our attorney’s fees, even if fees might otherwise be awarded unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and Global Presence also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors, and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of the Services. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions in consumer cases as discussed above) will be brought in. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in the County of Broward, Florida, or federal court for the Southern District of Florida. If any part of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect.

Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Service or to enforce intellectual property rights (e.g., copyright, trademark, trade secret, or patent rights) without first engaging in our informal dispute resolution process or arbitration. If this agreement to arbitrate does not apply to you or your claim, any judicial proceeding will be brought in the federal or state courts of Broward County, Florida. You and Global Presence agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Broward County, Florida.  REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BROUGHT BY YOU ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF THE SERVICE OR THESE TERMS MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE OR BE FOREVER BARRED.

39. General

We may provide notices to you via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices of changes to these Terms or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices to you generally on the Service. If your Country of Residence is the United States or Canada, these Terms and the relationship between you and Global Presence shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Global Presence agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within Broward, Florida.

 

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us. They govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of these Terms). You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or other services, third-party content, or third-party software. If any provision of these Terms or incorporated documents are found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action brought by you arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. You acknowledge and agree that you are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, more than one person's claims may not be consolidated under any circumstances, in any form of any class or representative proceeding or otherwise.

 

A person who is not a party to the agreement between us has no right to enforce any term of the engagement. The rights and remedies available to Global Presence under these Terms of Business are without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to Global Presence. Any failure by Global Presence to exercise or delay by Global Presence in exercising a right or remedy provided by these Terms of Business or by law does not constitute a waiver of the right or remedy or a waiver of other rights or remedies.

 

The contract between us is based on these Terms of Business and is subject to US Law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the US Courts.

 

Global Presence looks forward to working with You.  Your payment of an invoice will amount to an acceptance of these Standard Terms and Conditions.
