12. User's Account and Ownership of Rights.

a. Account creation. To post Content on the Site, you are required to create an account by registering with an email address, username, and password ("Account"). You must provide accurate information upon registration, and you must keep your account information updated frequently. Any use of your Account will be deemed as being used by you, as you shall not share your username and password with others. SEOMojo is entitled to suspend, block, or remove your Account at its sole discretion and without notice.

b. User Ownership Rights. You retain ownership of your rights in any Content you post to the Service, subject to the rights and licenses that you grant to SEOMojo as described in these Terms.

c. Unless clearly stated otherwise in the service description text, when the work is delivered, the Buyer is granted all intellectual property rights, including but not limited to, copyrights for the work delivered from the Seller and the Seller waives any and all moral rights therein. The Seller expressly agrees to assign to Buyer the copyright in any delivered services that do not meet the requirements of a work-for-hire under the U.S. Copyright Act. Additionally, independent of the U.S. Copyright Act, the Seller agrees that unless he indicated otherwise in the service description, once the order is completed the Seller assigns along with it to the buyer, to the fullest extent possible under the law, all of its rights, title and interest, if any, in and to the delivered service and waives any and all moral rights in connection therewith. All transfer and assignment of intellectual property to Buyer shall be subject to full payment for the service.

d. Sellers confirm that whatever information they receive from the buyer, which is not public domain, shall not be used for any purpose whatsoever other than for the delivery of the work to the Buyer.

e. Furthermore, users (both buyers and sellers) agree that unless they explicitly indicate otherwise, the content users voluntarily create/upload to SEOMojo, including service texts, photos, videos, photos, and any other information, including the display of delivered work, may be used by SEOMojo for other purposes.

13. Orders, Cancellations, Disputes, and Refunds.

SEOMojo does not guarantee or validate any services.

a. Order Process. Buyers select a Service provided by a Seller and make a purchase. When a payment is confirmed, your order will be created, and the Seller is notified. All services MUST be paid through PayPal or SEOMojo balance at the time of ordering through SEOMojo.com. Users are not permitted to offer or accept payments using any method other than through the SEOMojo system. Services should be ordered using the "Order Now" button. SEOMojo holds the payment in escrow and pays it to the Seller after the Buyer has accepted the completed work of the Seller.  Upon completion of the work, Seller notifies Buyer through SEOMojo that work has been delivered. Buyer then has 2 business days to accept or reject the work. Upon acceptance of work, the service is deemed completed and the Seller receives payment to his/her SEOMojo account. Buyer can then rate the Seller and leave a review.

SEOMojo collects a 20% service fee on all transactions over $1.

Important: When a Seller marks a service as delivered, the Buyer has 2 business days to respond by accepting or rejecting the delivered work. Failure to respond will result in the order being automatically approved, thus completing the service, sending payment to the Seller. If an order has automatically completed, you may submit a support ticket for review, and we may re-open the order so that you may dispute the services rendered with the seller. This is SEOMojo's sole discretion.

b. Late Delivery of Ordered Service. If a Seller is late and has provided no communication, we encourage buyers to cancel the order. Upon cancellation, funds will be returned to the Buyer's SEOMojo account balance.

c. Rejection of Delivered Work. Upon Buyer rejection of Seller's delivered work, the Seller has 3 business days to re-deliver the work for acceptance or rejection. Upon re-delivery of work, Buyer can accept or reject. This process continues until work is accepted or there is a cancellation of the purchased service. Upon cancellation, funds will be returned to the Buyer's SEOMojo account balance.

d. Mutual Cancellation. Both buyers and sellers have the option to mutually agree to cancel a service. Mutual cancellations have no negative effect on rating. However, excessive cancellations, of any type are not acceptable. Unanswered mutual cancellation requests will automatically be accepted after 3 business days. Upon cancellation, funds will be returned to the Buyer's SEOMojo account balance.

e. Refunds. Refunds will not be given for disputes (work delivered but rejected), balance purchases, or for any other reason except undelivered work. Funds will be returned to the Buyer's SEOMojo balance for future balance purchases.  Refunds are only given if work has not been delivered by the seller. This means the seller is not responding to you nor has made any attempt to deliver your ordered work.

f. Disputes. SEOMojo has the right, but not the obligation to resolve disputes between users relating to the Service and SEOMojo's resolution of a particular dispute does not create an obligation to resolve any other dispute. SEOMojo highly suggests trying to resolve disagreements mutually between the Buyer and Seller, without intervention of SEOMojo. Once a dispute is opened, the final decision is determined by SEOMojo, and that decision is final. During the 3 business days following a Buyer's rejection of service, both the Buyer and Seller can request a Dispute through SEOMojo. Once a dispute is opened, notifications are sent to Buyer, Seller, and SEOMojo Support. SEOMojo has full rights to award to Buyer or Seller's favor.

DO NOT create a dispute or reverse a payment through PayPal or your bank against SEOMojo. Doing so will cause your account to be put on hold. Accounts on hold will no longer be able to buy or sell using SEOMojo. 

In case of a problem, always try and work things out with the Seller. If you need further assistance, contact our customer support here.

Miscellaneous

Users are not permitted to offer or accept to communicate with other SEOMojo users outside of  the SEOMojo messaging system. Doing so, will get the account blocked permanently.

These Terms of Use will be governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of Indiana, United States of America, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law.  You specifically consent to personal jurisdiction in Indiana in connection with any dispute between you and Company arising out of these Terms of Use or pertaining to the subject matter hereof.  The parties to these Terms of Use each agree that the exclusive venue for any dispute between the parties arising out of these Terms of Use or pertaining to the subject matter of these Terms of Use will be in the state and federal courts in Indianapolis, Indiana.  If any part of these Terms of Use is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
