Inspyre, Inc ("Inspyre", "we", or "us") provides its ChristianCMS service to you subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at Terms of Service our Terms of Service page. In addition, when using particular ChristianCMS services, you and Inspyre shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS.
Acceptance of the TOS is absolute and applies to you as an account owner regardless of the number of websites or users contained within your account. You, as the account owner, are responsible for all websites within your account and for each websites adherence to these TOS.
Unless we expressly note otherwise, these terms cover the files and applications available on the domain christiancms.com, and any sub-domains, as well as affiliated domains and sub-domains operated by Inspyre.
You must be at least 18 years old to enter into this agreement to use the Service.
ChristianCMS was created to provide users with access to a full-featured website content management system, Hosted Email, and Analysis Tools for Churches, Ministries, Nonprofits and Christian Businesses. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that Inspyre assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications, personalization settings or content. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
Your use of ChristianCMS must be reasonable. You may not place excessive burdens on our CPUs, servers or other resources. You agree that we may place restrictions on your use of our Service to the extent that your use exceeds the use by similarly situated customers.
You understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from Inspyre/ChristianCMS, such as service announcements, administrative messages and newsletters, and that these communications are considered part of your ChristianCMS membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to the TOS.
In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to:
ChristianCMS memberships are provided as either a one (1) month, three (3) month or twelve (12) month service contract agreement with Inspyre which includes setup fees, membership fees, domain names, renewals, and design services. At the end of the term, the contract will automatically renew indefinitely until explicitly canceled by the User. There is no refund for unused portions of your service contract.
The initial payment begins Services immediately and is not dependent upon usage or the status of the website design or development project. Our obligation to provide Service to you is contingent upon your payment of the fees by your due date. Payments for your use of the Service will be automatically billed to the Payment Method you provide.
All invoice notices will be sent by email. No invoices will be sent by postal mail or fax.
The following describes Inspyre’s billing practices:
Unless otherwise agreed upon, all ChristianCMS memberships must maintain a credit card or check draft information on file at all times. This information will be used to process monthly, quarterly, and yearly membership fees as well as any work orders approved by the member. Any outstanding balance on your account may be charged using the information on file without notice. We provide information about any upcoming charges as well as a full transaction history from within every member's Dashboard.
If ever you have an issue with a bill, we will work with you in good faith as Christians to resolve it. We trust you will do the same. If you have a question about charges made to your Payment Method, please contact Inspyre immediately. If the charges were made in error, we will immediately credit your account or Payment Method for the appropriate amount.
Inspyre has a zero tolerance policy for chargebacks and returned check drafts. Any customer who disputes a credit card or check draft payment that is found to be valid will be permanently blacklisted and barred from use of the Service. Any past due fees and costs will be sent to collections. If our collection efforts fail, unpaid debts will be reported to all available credit reporting agencies.
Chargebacks and returned check drafts are assessed a $40 fee. We encourage our clients to communicate with us regarding any charges that you feel are not valid.
Collecting from members who are running past due balances is an expensive process. Members with balances running longer than 15 days will also be assessed a collection fee of $25 or 10%, whichever is greater, to help pay for the resources necessary to collect their past due balance. The collection fee will be added to your outstanding balance.
Inspyre will not, under any circumstances, issue refunds for any cancellation of service. No refund is available for website design, development or any Inspyre Services after purchase. Additional ChristianCMS Services such data transfer overages, disk space, email accounts, add-on modules etc. are nonrefundable.
Individuals or businesses who create an account for another organization are classified as third-party subscribers. Third-party subscribers who sign up more than 4 accounts under one administrative user are classified as resellers of our platform. Third-party subscribers and resellers are solely responsible for payment of all service fees. In order to remove an account from one's administrative user, payment must be received for any outstanding balance from the third-party subscriber or reseller BEFORE placing responsibility on the organization utilizing the service. No exception will be made to this policy.
Canceling your ChristianCMS Services is quick and easy. All cancellations must be done through the Cancellation Form, accessible from within your Dashboard in the Account Management section. Please allow for a 24 hour processing time after submitting your request. A representative will contact you to finalize your cancellation. All cancellations must be received 24 hours before the last business day of the current billing cycle to prevent additional charges for the following billing cycle.
It is the Users responsibility to secure email confirmation from Inspyre that account has been canceled. If the User has not yet received email confirmation of account cancellation, then the account remains active, and you will continue to be invoiced. If User has a balance due at the time of cancellation, this balance must be paid in full. Cancellation does not absolve Users of any outstanding financial obligations.
Occasionally, we have members who suspend their account. Other times, an account will be suspended due to billing issues. If your account is suspended for any reason, a $50 reactivation fee will be assessed per incident. Members may request an account suspension for a maximum of six months. All data, files, and server entries are automatically deleted after that time period.
User projects that are placed on hold or suspended for any reason and projects considered abandoned due to non-communication from the client are automatically closed and canceled by Inspyre after ninety (90) days of inactivity from the date of the Users last written communication specifically about the project in question. Projects closed under this policy will not be refunded. Users may repurchase services that were closed at the current pricing for the desired services regardless of the original purchase price of the services.
Written quotes for products and services provided by Inspyre are valid for a period of thirty days. Quotes automatically expire without notice at the end of business hours on the 30th day. Promotional pricing is only valid during the stated date range of the promotion and automatically expire at the end of business hours on the last day of the promotion.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your passwords and access to your ChristianCMS Services and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your membership. You agree to immediately notify Inspyre of any unauthorized use of your password or Services or any other breach of security. Inspyre cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage to your content or data arising from your failure to comply with this section.

You acknowledge that Inspyre may establish general practices and limits concerning use of the Service, including without limitation the maximum disk space or bandwidth that will be allotted on Inspyre's servers on your behalf.

All Media Server clients are provided with Traffic Reports that allow you to keep track of how much media you have transferred at any given time in the month, and what files are being downloaded. It is the sole responsibility of our members to monitor their downloads and make the necessary changes to throttle their media bandwidth usage.

The TOS and the relationship between you and Inspyre shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Inspyre agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within Hillsborough County, Florida. The failure of Inspyre to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the TOS remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the TOS must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
