The Plans covers support for one WordPress sites owned by the same client. When signing up for an Unlimited Plan, you must provide us with the site that will be covered by the Plan.

Services not included
The following are examples of requests that are not included in the Plans. If requested, these tasks will be performed at an agreed upon rate.

The Plans support WordPress installations that are no more than 2 major release versions older than the current WordPress core version.
If your WordPress version is more than 2 major releases old (for example, if the current core version is 4.9.x and your installation is 4.6.x or older), the upgrade can only be done manually and there is significant risk that an upgrade may damage files or cause conflict issues with themes or plugins.
If you require Webvolutions to upgrade a WordPress installation that is more than 2 major releases old, there will be an additional one-time fee of $400 to complete this task, and you agree to discharge Webvolutions from any responsibility or consequence that may arise from a failed update of the WordPress core.
You agree that you will pay for the Plan provided by Webvolutions. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing Webvolutions with a valid payment method for the payment of all fees.
Full payment of the Plan fee is due every month on the renewal day of your subscription. For additional requests or tasks that fall outside of the scope of Services of the Plan, you agree to pay in full prior to the beginning of the work. Webvolutions is in no obligation to begin working on the task until payment has been received in full.
Upgrade/downgrade of Services
You are free to upgrade or downgrade between Plans, but you can’t switch Plans more than twice in a calendar year. The upgrade/downgrade will take effect on the renewal day of your subscription that immediately follows your request to upgrade/downgrade Plans. Requests to upgrade or downgrade must be submitted to email@example.com.
Cancellation of Services
You are free to cancel your service at any time. The termination of your Plan will take effect on the last day of your current subscription month. Webvolutions will not offer any refunds or pro-rate the current month’s maintenance fee following a termination request.
To cancel your Maintenance Plan, simply send a cancellation request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will acknowledge receipt and confirm the cancellation date.
Webvolutions reserves the right to terminate or suspend any and all Plans immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, or for no reason, including without limitation, if you breach these Terms of Service.
You may choose to re-activate your subscription after cancelling it. To account for all the maintenance work that will have to be performed since your subscription was cancelled, when you sign up for a Plan again, there will be a $150 fee for every month that your subscription was inactive, with a minimum of one month due.
Webvolutions reserves the right to refuse future sign-ups once a subscription has been cancelled.
Limitation of Liability
You hereby expressly and irrevocably release and forever discharge Webvolutions from any and all actions, causes of action, suits, proceedings, liability, debts, judgments, claims and demands whatsoever in law or equity which you ever had, now have, or hereafter can, shall or may have, for or by reason of, or arising directly or indirectly out of your use of the Services.
You hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless Webvolutions from and against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including, but not limited to, direct, incidental, consequential, punitive, exemplary and indirect damages), and reasonable attorneys’ fees, relating to, resulting from or arising out of, in whole or in part (i) any breach of these Terms, whether or not deemed to be material or immaterial; (ii) the use of or reliance upon the Services, by you or any person acting on your behalf; or (iii) any material or immaterial violation of any rights, title or interests of any third party.
In no event shall Webvolutions be liable to you under any legal or equitable theory, including but not limited to contract, tort, strict liability, negligence, common law or with respect to the Services provided for any lost profits, loss of use, or actual, special, indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever.
