E-Mail Policy | Delinquent Accounts | Terms & Conditions
Due to increasing internet-wide spam controls, many of our clients (especially those using AOL) are experiencing problems with receiving their web site forms and forwarded email.
To combat this problem, we are recommending that our clients use the WebMail service that comes with our hosting. We will set up mailboxes on
our servers for anyone using our hosting. Clients may then access and manage their email messages from any computer using this service. If they prefer, clients may also set up their email program of choice -- like
Outlook or Outlook Express -- to download mail directly to their computer. Instructions for both methods will be sent to the client.
MouseWorks will no longer recommend
email forwarding or forms directed to clients' existing external email addresses. We will set up either of
these services at a client's request; but we will not be responsible for lost forms or messages. In addition, any tech support requested to troubleshoot
problems caused by forms or email forwarding directed to outside addresses will be charged at our usual hourly rate.
DELINQUENT ACCOUNT POLICY
MouseWorks has, regretfully, found it necessary to institute a policy regarding delinquent accounts. To avoid repeat billing and keep our costs down,
payment is due in full within 21 days of invoice date, unless previous payment installment arrangements have been authorized.
If an account remains unpaid beyond thirty (30) days,
we reserve the right to cease any further work until the account balance is paid in full. If an account remains unpaid beyond sixty (60) days,
we reserve the right to remove site files from the server and discontinue mail service until the balance, plus a $25 reinstatement fee, is paid in full.
If an account remains unpaid beyond ninety (90) days,
MouseWorks reserves the right to decline all future business with the client and pursue full payment, plus 15% interest calculated on a daily basis from the original date of invoicing, via legal means.
