rank pages is out of our control. Factors that may influence search
ranking include 1) Keyword Competition 2) Writing 3) Page Optimization 4)Any number of other factors that search engine

Hosting Service Level
- Buzzoodle hosts all sites in
state of the art data centers.
Our providers guarantee hosting to 99% or more. Because the data center is not in
our control, we cannot guarantee uptime. Uptime includes the functioning of
all network infrastructure within datacenter facilities, the web
server, database server servers, email server, and the software that is
run on those servers (collectively, the “Service Provider
Network”). Downtime exists when Client is unable to visit the
website or login in to the web application as a result of a failure of the
Service Provider Network. This Service Level Agreement does not cover
Client’s connection to the Internet or any systems or software
outside of the Service Provider Network.
- If for some reason the
Hosting Service does not meet your standards, Client may request a refund
in the amount of 5% of their monthly fee for each 30 minutes of continuous
downtime (up to 50% of Client’s monthly fee). Alternatively, if no
single period of downtime was 30 minutes or greater, Client may request a
refund equal to the percentage of downtime during the affected month
multiplied by Client’s monthly service fee. In either case, such
refund will be Client’s sole remedy for the failure of Service
Provider to maintain 99% uptime during a given month.
