6.2. Although our algorithms are created to avoid any potentially harmful and/or
illegal websites and the Company’s staff puts its reasonable efforts to filter out such
websites regularly, it is potentially possible that some of the Third-Party Platforms are
inappropriate for leasing or buying backlinks. The Company is not responsible for any
possible technical, ranking or legal issues caused by leasing/buying of such backlinks.
6.3. If you ever find any inappropriate Third-Party Platforms or other source websites,
please contact our support team to filter out such Third-Party Platforms and websites
in your Account or cease their use in for the provision of the Services.
- Fees and payments
7.1. The Fees. The Services are subject to the applicable service fees (the “Fees”)
payable by the User. The schedule of the Fees is available on the Website or
communicated to the User personally. The The Fees are charged automatically for the
actual use of the Services and deducted from User’s balance prepaid in ad- vance,
unless cancelled earlier by the User. By concluding a service contract with us, the User
agrees to pay the Fees in accordance with these Terms, the terms and conditions of
the respective Fees, and other terms and conditions in force at the moment the
service contract is concluded. The Fees are indicated in US Dol- lars (USD) and remain
valid for as long as (i) they are indicated on the Website, (ii) as communicated by us,
or (iii) User’s service contract lasts. The Fees are subject to a change without a prior
notice. Any changes to the Fees will be made available to the User and, if necessary,
we will request the User to provide consent to the amendments of the Fees.
7.2. Payments. All payments related to SOCIALGATE are processed by our third-party
payment processors PayPal and STRIPE (the “Payment Processors”). The Payment
Processors may collect some personal data from the User, such as User’s name, credit
card number, and billing address, which will allow it to make payments requested by
the User. The Payment Processors handle all steps in the payment process through its
systems, including data collection and data processing. The User is responsible for
ensuring that all payment information is correct and the funds necessary for paying
the Fees are available. The User agrees not to hold us liable for payments that do not
reach us because the User has quoted incorrect payment information or the Payment
Processors refused the payment for any other reason.
7.3. Concluding a service contract. The User that would like to conclude a service
contract with us needs to: (i) visit the Website; (ii) register the Account by submit-
ting the requested personal data; (iii) choose the Services; (iv) provide the required
payment information; and (v) make the upfront payment. The User will be able to
identify and correct any input errors prior to clicking on the “Pay” button. After the
User clicks on the button “Pay” and the payment is completed, we will send a
confirmatory email informing the User about the order. By clicking on the button
“Pay” and receiving a confirmatory email, the User concludes a service contract in
English with us on the basis of these Terms. The details of the specific service contract
will not be filed by us and, therefore, the specific contract will not be available to the
User. However, if the User does require any information regarding the order, the User
can consult the Account or contact us directly.
7.4. Cancellation. The User is entitled to cancel then Services and the Fees related
thereto at any time though the Account or by contacting us directly. No Fees paid for
the Services provided to the User shall be refunded. After the cancellation of the
Services becomes effective, no further Fees shall be charged to the User and the
provision of the Services shall cease.
7.5. Refunds. The Fees are charged for the Services actually used by the User.
Therefore, we do not provide refunds for the Fees paid and the Services provided to
the User. In case User’s account received any bonus credits, such credits are not
subject to refund, so the bonus credits are deducted before calculating the final
refund. Any upfront payments that have not been charged by the Company shall be
refunded to the User upon termination of the Account. If the User is not satisfied with
SOCIALGATE and there is a reason to believe that the quality of the Services is
impaired due to our fault, we may, after carefully assessing the issue and in our sole
discretion, issue partial or full refunds to the User. The situations in which we may
consider issuing refunds include: (i) if the Services are impaired due to technical
issues that cannot be solved in a reasonably timely manner; (ii) we materially breach
these Terms; or (iii) we fail to provide the Services as agreed to with the User. In order
to terminate the service contract and receive a refund, the User must contact us and
explain User’s concern in detail. If the User qualifies for a refund, we will issue the
refund by using the same payment method that the User used to make the payment.
8.1. All personal data collected from you shall be processed in accordance with our
our practices and procedures pertaining to the processing of your personal data.
8.2. Marketing communication. We may send you occasional newsletters. You may
opt out of the newsletters at any time by using the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom
of the email. We will send you marketing-related communication only if (i) you
provide us with your opt-in consent to receive such communication or (ii) we cide to
send you marketing messages about our new services that are closely related to the
Services already used by you.
8.3. Informational notices. After you register the Account, you may receive from us
important technical notices about your Account and SOCIALGATE (the
“Notifications”), including low balance notifications, technical or administrative
emails, information about your Account, privacy and security, and other important
matters, because they are essential for the success of the Services. You cannot opt
out from the Notifications.
