Software Lighthouse is a web application and software development business and communicates with its Clients electronically. When Client accepts this TOS Client consents to receive electronically from Software Lighthouse any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications (Notices). Client agrees that Software Lighthouse may send electronic Notices in either of the following ways 1) To the email address provided to Software Lighthouse at the time of sale or 2) to the new email address account Client set up through Software Lighthouse. Client agrees to check the designated email addresses regularly for Notices. Notice from Software Lighthouse is effective when sent by Software Lighthouse, regardless of whether the Notice is read or received by Client.


As part of Software Lighthouse’s commitment to providing the best possible service Software Lighthouse may monitor and record phone calls answered by Software Lighthouse and made by Software Lighthouse. Software Lighthouse may also archive recorded voice mail messages. Software Lighthouse records calls for training purposes, to improve customer service, and to ensure an accurate record of Client calls, which may be needed to support transactions that take place over the phone. This allows Software Lighthouse to identify how Software Lighthouse can better serve its customers.


With help and input from the Client, Software Lighthouse will develop the contracted scope of the software project. Before work may begin on a project, the Client must sign the project acceptance agreement and electronically accept these Terms of Service. Client may submit their design survey to Software Lighthouse through Software Lighthouse’s online design survey application. In submitting the survey, links to sample sites the Client likes are for general information purposes only and assist Software Lighthouse with the design of the Client’s custom website or software. The functionality and detail of the sample sites will not be duplicated unless such functionality and detail are specifically included and itemized in Software Lighthouse’s proposal and Project Specifications Summaries and do not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others. Software Lighthouse will not be held liable for accuracy of information, typos, or spelling errors in any of the content approved by the Client and published on the website. Client will be notified by email when the website is live.


While Software Lighthouse does not guarantee a time frame for the completion of any custom website or software project, it may offer an optional expedited service to Client for a fee. Expedited service is not available for all accounts and all requests for expedited service must be approved by Software Lighthouse at its sole discretion. Client understands and agrees that Client’s use of expedited service does not guarantee that Client’s website / software including its corresponding design, enhancements, databases, e-commerce stores, flash, etc, will be completed more quickly than they would be without the use of the expedited service. The expedited service fee only ensures that Software Lighthouse will make reasonable efforts to more quickly assign designers and programmers to the account in an effort to facilitate development than would be the case under the ordinary developmental process. The successful use of expedited service is contingent upon Client’s timely acceptance of the Terms of Service, payment of any and all fees due, submission of content through the online web center and acceptance of any project specification documents prepared by Software Lighthouse and Client’s timely cooperation with Software Lighthouse in any solicitation for information related to the website / software’s development. If expedited service is offered to Client by Software Lighthouse, Client may be presented with an estimated date of completion. Client understands and agrees that such estimated dates of completion are estimates only and may apply only to one particular element of the project, i.e. database, flash, e-commerce, design, programming and not necessarily to multiple elements of the website or to the website collectively. Under no circumstances will Software Lighthouse guarantee the respective portion or portions of the website / software subject to the estimated date of completion to be completed sooner than the estimated date of completion. Should circumstances arise that make it impossible to complete the portion or portions of the website / software that are subject to the estimated date of completion by the estimated date of completion, including but not limited to Client failure to provide Software Lighthouse with requested information in a timely manner, Software Lighthouse reserves the right to change the estimated date of completion accordingly or to cancel the expedited services and refund a portion of the expedited service fee to Client. In no case shall the portion of the expedited service fee to be refunded be greater than fifty percent (50%) of the expedited service fee. Regardless of whether work is completed by the estimated date of completion, Client remains liable to Software Lighthouse for any and all other charges related to the website / software’s development.


Both the Client and ourselves have the right to terminate any Services Agreement for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway. No refunds shall be offered, where a Service is deemed to have begun and is, for all intents and purposes, underway. If the Client cancels an account before the work is completed or site is live, a cancellation fee is retained per the Cancellation Fee and Refund Policy (SEE Cancellation Fee and Refund Policy). Client agrees that all fees incurred and billed prior to cancellation effective date are valid and Client agrees to pay. Upon request for termination of services the website will be removed. A back-up copy of the website/software is not maintained by Software Lighthouse


Client is responsible for testing the functionality of the website / software upon Software Lighthouse’s request for approval, and notification that the website / software has been completed. This includes, but is not limited to, functionality of all website / software pages, programmed functionality, database, e-commerce store, payment functions, galleries, forums and other business software functionalities.
Client website / software design may be posted live as soon as the website design is completed by Software Lighthouse and full design milestone payment is received from Client to Software Lighthouse. Additional features, such as custom database programming, flash programming, etc., will be added to the site as they are completed. The website / software may be posted live within 30 days from purchase if Software Lighthouse is required to complete content and design without complete Client input or content from Client.
The Client understands and agrees that if the Client does not respond within 5 business days to Software Lighthouse’s request for approval and notification that the website / software has been completed and taken live, the website / software along with the functionality of the website / software and services rendered, will be deemed to be approved by the Client and Client agrees services have been rendered and the functionality of the website / software has been tested and approved by the Client.
The Client understands and agrees that if the Client does not respond to requests for missing information a final notification will be sent to the Client. If the Client does not respond within 5 business days to Software Lighthouse’s notification or requests for missing information, the website / software, along with the functionality of the website / software and the services rendered, will be deemed to be approved by the Client, and the website / software will be taken live with the missing information “as-is” or “under construction”.
In the event that Software Lighthouse completes all of the work per the original sale and database write ups, Software Lighthouse reserves the right to move the site live and deem the work to be completed without Client’s permission if Client will not give approval of the work.


Software Lighthouse agrees to build a website / software to specifications quoted per the original proposal and original project specification document. Any additions or changes requested outside of the scope of the original sale, either prior to the custom website going live, or after the site has gone live, will be billed at Software Lighthouse’s standard hourly rate. Software Lighthouse is not obligated to complete Client requests or changes outside of the scope of work on the original proposal. If Software Lighthouse does not agree to Client requests or changes, Client is still obligated to pay all fees incurred and due.
