Terms of Service

Payment. By clicking “Pay $45.00 / month” (or “Pay $95.00 / month”) here, the sponsor agreed to create a WordPress.com account or to use their existing WordPress.com account to manage this subscription. The sponsor agreed to WordPress.com’s Terms of Service and authorized WordPress.com to charge them on a recurring basis until they cancel, which can be done at any time. The sponsor understands how their subscription works and how to cancel. When the sponsor starts a recurring payment, they are automatically charged at regularly recurring intervals until the subscription is cancelled. The interval is called a renewal period. Subscriptions automatically renew for the same amount at the end of each renewal period. For example, if the $45.00 per month sponsorship package was selected on January 17 (order date), the sponsor will be charged $45.00 every month on the 17th until the subscription is cancelled. Charges will appear on the sponsor’s credit card statement as “CENTRAL COAST CATHOLIC” or “CCCATHOLIC”.

Advertisement Creation. Following sign-up, Central Coast Catholic will design the “business card” style ad based on information provided by the Sponsor (text, image files, website link, etc.), and then upload the ad to either MontereyCatholic.net, SanBenitoCatholic.net, SantaCruzCatholic.net, or SLOCatholic.net. A simplified ad will also be created for the weekly eNewsletter, if subscribed. All ads will link to the sponsor’s own website or social media page. (If the Sponsor does not have an online presence, the “business card” style ad can be enlarged with more information included for no additional cost.)

Price Increase. There will be no price increase for at least three years (36 months) from the order date. This only applies to sponsors who advertise on one of the Central Coast Catholic platforms for a consecutive 36 months (3 years). Sponsor will be notified of any price increase in writing via email at least 30 days before going into effect.

Positioning. Positioning of advertisements on either MontereyCatholic.net, SanBenitoCatholic.net, SantaCruzCatholic.net, or SLOCatholic.net, and in the weekly eNewsletter is at the sole discretion of Central Coast Catholic. Sponsor acknowledges that Central Coast Catholic has not made any guarantees with respect to usage, statistics, or levels of impressions for any advertising. To the extent Central Coast Catholic provides Sponsor with estimated usage, it does so only as a courtesy to Sponsor and shall not be held liable for any claims related to usage.

Cancellation. Sponsor may cancel their advertisement at any time via their WordPress.com by going to their Other Site Payments page and click “Cancel” next to the Payment that they would like to cancel. The subscription will be canceled immediately, and sponsor will not be charged again. All sales are final; no refunds will be given.

Indemnification. Sponsor assumes all liability for content of advertising and agrees to defend, hold harmless, and indemnify Central Coast Catholic and its parent company from all claims, losses, judgments, damages, costs, and expenses of any nature whatsoever, including but not limited to reasonable attorney fees, for which Central Coast Catholic may become liable by reason of its publication of the Sponsor’s advertisements.

Liability Limitation. Liability for typographical errors, wrong insertions, and/or nonpublication, or other Central Coast Catholic non-performance is limited to the amount charged to the Sponsor by Central Coast Catholic. In no event shall Central Coast Catholic be liable to Sponsor or to any third party for any indirect, special, or consequential damages, including but not limited to lost profits or unrealized business opportunity arising out of these terms and agreements or the publication of or failure to publish any advertisement.

Force Majeure. Neither party shall be held responsible for delay or failure in performance under these terms and conditions caused by acts of God, fires, floods, strikes, terrorism, work stoppages, breakdown of equipment, government action, internet or website downtime, or other causes beyond the affected parties’ reasonable control.

Governing Law. These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws rules or principles.

These terms and conditions remain in effect until subscription is canceled.
