1.2. Legal Agreement
By using our services, you signify your consent to these terms. You may not use our services if you do not consent to all our terms.
To use certain of our services, you need to create a user account.
You should keep your username and password protected and safe, and only allow people you trust to access your account or website settings.
All activities that occur under your user account or website are your responsibility.
1.3. User Account
In order to access and use certain sections and features of the FlameGrower LLC Services, you must first register and create an account with FlameGrower LLC (“User Account”).
If anyone other than yourself accesses your User Account and/or any of your User Platforms’ settings, they may perform any actions available to you (unless as specifically stated otherwise on the FlameGrower LLC Services), make changes to your User Platform(s) and User Account, and accept any legal terms available therein, make various representations and warranties and more – and all such activities will be deemed to have occurred on your behalf and in your name.
Therefore, we strongly encourage you to keep the log-in credentials of your User Account confidential, and allow such access only to people you trust – as you will be solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your User Account and/or User Platforms (including for any representations, warranties and undertakings made therein), whether or not specifically authorized by you, and for any damages, expenses or losses that may result from such activities.
You must provide accurate and complete information when registering your User Account and using the FlameGrower LLC Services, to which you are the sole and exclusive rights holder. We strongly encourage you to provide your own (or your company’s) contact and billing details, including your valid e-mail address, as we may use it to identify and determine the actual and true owner of the User Account and/or User Content (as defined below) submitted to us.
In case of a dispute on User Account ownership, we reserve the right to determine ownership to a User Account based on our reasonable judgment, whether or not an independent investigation has been conducted by us. However, if we cannot make such determination (as we may deem in our sole discretion), we reserve the right to avoid doing so and/or suspend a User Account until the parties disputing such ownership, reach a resolution, without liability to you or to any other party. We may request documentation (e.g. government-issued ID, a business license) that may assist us in determining ownership. Among others, we may consider the principles set forth below.
FlameGrower LLC will consider the owner of a User Account, User Platform and/or User Content created and/or uploaded to the relevant FlameGrower LLC Service, as the person or entity who has access to the e-mail address then listed in FlameGrower LLC’s records for such User Account under which such User Platform or User Content was created.
If any Paid Services (as defined in Section 5 below) were purchased via a User Account, FlameGrower LLC will consider the owner of such User Account and/or the relevant User Platform and/or User Content created thereunder, may be considered to be the person or entity whose billing details were used to purchase such Paid Services (“Billing Information”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, when applicable if a User Platform was connected to an external domain name (either imported or purchased as part of certain Paid Services, as defined below), and such domain’s registration information is publicly available via the WHOIS database provided on the net website or on FlameGrower LLC’s database, FlameGrower LLC will consider the owner of such User Platform as the person or entity registered as the registrant of such domain thereunder. In the event that an individual and an organization are both registered as the registrant or the registrant organization of such domain, FlameGrower LLC will consider the organization as the actual owner of the domain, and therefore as the owner of the User Platform connected to such domain. In event the Billing Information indicates one person as the owner of the User Platform and the domain registration indicates a different owner, FlameGrower LLC shall consider the person registered as the owner of the domain connected to the FlameGrower LLC Account as the owner of the User Platform.
Notwithstanding the forgoing, FlameGrower LLC shall have the right to determine the ownership of User Content and/or a User Website as it chooses, including by ignoring the indications set forth above, in event FlameGrower LLC deems, at its sole discretion, that the situation justifies such determination, all based upon the factual situation as determined by FlameGrower LLC.

4.1. Paid Services
The use of certain FlameGrower LLC Services may be subject to payment of particular fees, as determined by FlameGrower LLC in its sole discretion (“Paid Services” and “Fee(s)”, respectively). FlameGrower LLC will provide notice of such Fees then in effect in relation to such Paid Services. If you wish to receive or use such Paid Services, you are required to pay all applicable Fees in advance.
FlameGrower LLC reserves the right to change its Fees at any time, upon notice to you if such change may affect your existing subscriptions. If you received a discount or other promotional offer, FlameGrower LLC shall have the right to automatically and without notice renew your subscription to such FlameGrower LLC Service(s) at the full applicable Fee.
All Fees shall be deemed to be in U.S. Dollars, except as specifically stated otherwise in writing by FlameGrower LLC. To the extent permitted by law (and unless specified otherwise by FlameGrower LLC in writing), all Fees are exclusive of all taxes (including value added tax, sales tax, goods and services tax, etc.), levies or duties imposed by taxing authorities (“Taxes”), and you shall be responsible for payment of all applicable Taxes relating to your use of the FlameGrower LLC Services, or to any payments or purchases made by you. If FlameGrower LLC is obligated to collect or pay Taxes for the Fees payable by you, and whether or not such Taxes were added and collected from you for previous transactions, such Taxes may be added to the payment of any outstanding Fees and will be reflected in the Invoice for such transaction. We recommend that you verify the existence of any additional fees you may be charged by third parties in connection with the purchase of Paid Services or in connection with the renewal thereof (such as international transaction fees, currency exchange fees or fees due to banks or credit card companies). FlameGrower LLC is not responsible for any such additional fees or costs.
As part of registering or submitting information to receive Paid Services, you also authorize FlameGrower LLC (either directly or through its affiliates, subsidiaries or other third parties) to request and collect payment (or otherwise charge, refund or take any other billing actions) from our payment provider or your designated banking account, and to make any inquiries FlameGrower LLC or its affiliates may consider necessary to validate your designated payment account or financial information, in order to ensure prompt payment, including for the purpose of receiving updated payment details from your payment, credit card or banking account provider (e.g., updated expiry date or card number as may be provided to us by your credit card company).
4.3. Subscription Auto-Renewals
In order to ensure that you do not experience any interruption or loss of services, certain Paid Services include an automatic renewal option by default, according to which, unless you turn-off he auto-renewal option, such Paid Services will automatically renew upon the end of the applicable subscription period, for a renewal period equal in time to the original subscription period (excluding extended periods).
For example, if the original subscription period for a Service is one month, each of its renewal periods (where applicable) will be for one month. Accordingly, where applicable, FlameGrower LLC will attempt to automatically charge you the applicable Fees using the payment method you have on file with FlameGrower LLC, within two (2) weeks before such renewal period commences. In the event of failure to collect the Fees owed by you, we may in our sole discretion (but shall not be obligated to) retry to collect on a later time, and/or suspend or cancel your User Account, without further notice. If your Paid Service is subject to a yearly or multiple-year subscription period, FlameGrower LLC will endeavor to provide you a notice prior to the renewal of such Paid Service at least thirty (30) days in advance of the renewal date.
You may turn-off the auto-renewal option or cancel your Paid Services at any time via your User Account or by contacting [email protected]
Certain domains are subject to a different renewal policy as detailed in the Domains Registration Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, you are and shall be solely responsible to verify and ensure the successful renewal of the FlameGrower LLC Services you use (whether or not such FlameGrower LLC Services are subject to automatic subscription renewals). Accordingly, you shall be solely responsible with respect to any discontinuation of any FlameGrower LLC Services previously purchased by you, including due to a cancellation, failure to charge the applicable recurring Fees, or due to any FlameGrower LLC Services not being subject to automatic subscription renewals. You acknowledge and agree that you shall not have any claims against FlameGrower LLC in relation to the discontinuation of any FlameGrower LLC Services or Third Party Services, for whatever reason.
4.4. Money-Back Guarantee
If you are not satisfied with FlameGrower LLC Services that are subject to a Fee for a period of service or subscription commitment and which is your initial purchase of such service, you may provide notice of cancellation for any reason within fourteen (14) days of having first ordered or activated such FlameGrower LLC Services (the “Refund” and “Refund Period”). The Refund is applicable only to the initial purchase of FlameGrower LLC services which is an upgrading of a free website by purchasing a Premium Plan (as offered on the FlameGrower LLC Website). The Refund is not applicable to any additional purchases, upgrades, modification or renewals of FlameGrower LLC Services. If you reside in a jurisdiction which requires a longer Refund Period, we will of course be happy to accommodate such requirements in accordance with all applicable laws. If FlameGrower LLC receives such notice within such Refund Period, FlameGrower LLC will refund to you the amount FlameGrower LLC charged you for such FlameGrower LLC Services, in currency you were originally charged in, and cancel them accordingly. Please note that the Refund amount may be different than the amount you were charged due to currency changes and third party fees. FlameGrower LLC will not be responsible for any differences caused by change of currency exchange rates or fees you were charged by third parties. After the Refund Period, the Fees paid by you are non-refundable and non-cancellable. In addition, if we find that a notice of cancellation has been given in bad faith or in an illegitimate attempt to avoid payment for services actually received and enjoyed, we reserve our right to still charge the User who provided such notice for any FlameGrower LLC Services actually received, as permitted by law.
Please note: Certain services purchased on or through the FlameGrower LLC Services may be non-refundable. These include Third Party Services such as domains, business tools and applications. The terms of each purchased service or application are indicated on the FlameGrower LLC Website and/or as part of or during the process of purchasing such services or applications. It is your obligation to verify your ability to cancel a service prior to purchasing it. FlameGrower LLC will not refund any amounts paid for non-refundable Paid Services, applications or Third Party Services.
If, at any time, we record a decline, chargeback or other rejection of a charge of any payable Fees on your FlameGrower LLC account (“Chargeback”), this will be considered as a breach of your payment obligations hereunder, and your use of the FlameGrower LLC Services may be automatically disabled or terminated.
In the event a Chargeback is performed, your User Account may be blocked without the option to re-purchase or re-use it, and any data contained in such User Account, including any domains, applications and Third-Party Services may be subject to cancellation and Capacity Loss (as defined in Section 6.3 below).
Your use of the FlameGrower LLC Services will not resume until you re-subscribe for any such FlameGrower LLC Services, and pay any applicable Fees in full, including any fees and expenses incurred by FlameGrower LLC and/or any Third-Party Services for each Chargeback received (including Fees for FlameGrower LLC Services provided prior to the Chargeback, handling and processing charges and fees incurred by the payment processor).
If you have any questions or concerns regarding a payment made to FlameGrower LLC, we encourage you to first contact our Customer Support team before filing a Chargeback or reversal of payment, in order to prevent the FlameGrower LLC Services from being cancelled and your User Account being blocked, and to avoid the filing of an unwarranted or erroneous Chargeback, which may result in your being liable for its applicable Fees, in addition to re-payment of all the Fees applicable to the FlameGrower LLC Services purchased (and charged-back) by you.
We reserve our right to dispute any Chargeback received, including by providing the relevant credit card company or financial institution with any information and documentation proving that the User responsible for such Chargeback did in fact authorize the transaction and make use of the services rendered thereafter.
