Part B: Billing and Payment
Members are responsible for payment for services agreed upon during activation or by written correspondence, including without limitation, website design and development.
Monies paid to EZ-NetTools for Monthly Services are non-refundable.
Website Development Agreements may be canceled at any time during the development process. If canceled within 3 (three) business days, there will be no penalty or obligation whatsoever and any funds paid will be refunded. After 3 (three) days, the refund will equal the funds paid less a 15 percent cancellation fee (of the agreement total) and any labor, services, and material costs that EZ-NetTools has incurred. The labor hours will be billed at our standard billing rate. If the amounts you have paid are less than cancellation fee and labor, service, and materials, then you are obligated to pay the difference. The Refund Eligibility Period is 90 (ninety) days. No refunds will be paid after 90 (ninety) days have passed from the date of the agreement.
Website Development agreements may be put on hold for up to 2 (two) years from the original date of the signed agreement. After a period of 2 (two) years the funds of the original agreement will be lost.

EZ-NetTools reserves the right to negotiate payment options and adjust payment plans as circumstances dictate. Use of certain special EZ-NetTools features may be subject to additional charges. EZ-NetTools reserves the right to change fees or institute new charges at any time, effective upon a 30-day notice to current EZ-NetTools Members, either through electronic or conventional mail.
