Email Address Policy

Email addresses collected by Found By Design will be kept private and will never be sold or re-distributed for any reason (unless required by law.) A valid email address is required for all clients for general communication. Found By Design also collects email addresses as need in various places of the website for marketing purposes. All communications are optional and may be terminated at any time. All email marketing is an opt-in meaning that an email address was voluntarily submitted, and may be terminated at will. We strongly disapprove of spam and pledge to not spam our clients or prospective clients. If you feel email communication is too frequent or not relevant, simply unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time. One exception: Clients must maintain a valid email address on file for important notices and updates. However, additional communication, such as marketing and training may be opted out. If a client wishes to opt-out of all communication, or fails to provide a valid working email address, it will result in a suspension/termination of the client’s account.

Current and prospective clients

FoundByDesign.com was created to help you achieve high visibility, greater SEO success and a dominate online web presence. We believe in our methods and suggestions. That being said, no one can guarantee anything along these lines as there are many factors that play into top positions on search engines.

You also understand that due to the nature of website design and hosting, that the services provided are not in the form of durable goods. This means that there are no refunds. However, we do not require contracts either (under normal circumstances) so if you find that you do not like our services, you may cancel and leave without any liability. That being said, the design and functionality of your website is a result of the fees you are paying. Unless agreed upon in writing, the design and content of your website that is provided by FoundByDesign.com will remain our property and will not be transferred elsewhere. If you are considering leaving and would like to take the content you have contributed with you, please contact us about our Moving Package in which we can export all your content to be used with another service that can support an XML import feed. (there is a fee for this service.) Once you have canceled the account, you will no longer have access to your account.

Cancellation of service does not release you of any outstanding obligations for which you may owe FoundByDesign.com.
