MODIFICATION OF TERMS
Len Anderson DBA Anderson Industries/Arizona Website Solutions. reserves the right to modify this policy at any time and without advance notice, effective upon making the modified provisions available on the Len Anderson DBA Anderson Industries/Arizona Website Solutions. Website. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these documents. Continued use of the Len Anderson DBA Anderson Industries/Arizona Website Solutions. Services after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. Len Anderson DBA Anderson Industries/Arizona Website Solutions. does not and will not assume any obligation to notify you of any changes to the Terms of Service. IF you do not agree with modified terms that are either conveyed verbally or found here, your only remedy is to cancel service under the requirements therein.
There are 4 types of services offered.
1. Retainer- if you are on a retainer program, you will pay a pre-established amount and retain a given number of hours by Len Anderson. It is understood that customers on retainer get absolute priority service, at any and all times. If the retained number of hours is exceeded then Len Anderson reserves the right to bill for the excess. Under a retainer program, Len Anderson acts as a "private contractor" to your company, and is under the same sort of supervision and expectation set as an employee. There are, however, absolutely no promised work, or guarantees in this program. Each month you are simply on retainer (pre paid) , or you are not. When you are not then you default to "dollar per hour" below. Either Len Anderson or you may terminate this retainer at any time, with or without notice. Len Anderson will be responsible for "to do" items while retainers are in place, but when the retainer program is cancelled then any and all want list items either directly asked for, expected or construed, are dropped.
2. "Project Basis"- in this program, you can define an exact project, with exact expected goals and "want list" items, and if these items are not finished you may withhold payment until you are satisfied. In this program you will be required to pay 50% up front, and the remainder upon completion. There could be an unlimited number of custom agreements between you and Len Anderson under this program, if there is such an agreement then it supercedes what is covered here.
3. "Dollar per hour"- This is plain and simply exactly what it says. You engage Len Anderson for hours, you pay dollars. THere is no guarantee of any sort, no expected end result and no warranty of any kind. If the time is unproductive, for any reason, you are still billed. If Len Anderson has to work with 3rd parties, discuss matters with you, or perform actions as a result of your requests, then it is considered billable time. THIS INCLUDES COLLECTION WORK. Hours are billed in minimum half-hour increments so it is in your best interest to ask for items in concise, carefully managed lists, and not micro-requests. How you use this billable time, by the requests you make, is solely up to you. If you want direct "to-do list" accountability, then you need to move to #1 or #2 above.
4. Web Hosting- Web hosting is provided on a year-by-year or monthly basis, fees are paid up front.
Spelling, punctuation and grammar, for the purposes of this document, are irrelevant. Go t o school if you are interested in these things.
USE CONSITUTES ACCEPTANCE

IF YOU DO NOT agree to these terms, then it is your sole responsibility to cancel service as outlined above. If, in a state of dissatisfaction, you fail to cancel, then you still accept these terms. Your ONLY REMEDY as outlined above is to cancel, elegantly. There is NO appeal or protest process, either expressed or implied.
