GoDaddy MSH Inc. Terms of Service
1. Agreement to Terms
2. Description of Services
GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s subscription services aim to provide you with both a team and the technology to improve your social media presence. The subscription service plans may include the following features: social profile optimization; review responses; custom posts to social media; branded email campaigns; and reporting and insights. The exact features available to you are dependent upon plan purchased. Subscription service plans for certain types of businesses will also require you to review and approve all Content before it is posted, published or otherwise disseminated through the Services.
i. Social Profile Optimization. We will create or upgrade all of your social media pages, with unlimited periodic updates to keep your business relevant and up-to-date. This can include a professional photo shoot for your business to create a portfolio of professionally shot and edited photos to use across your social media sites.
ii. Unlimited Review Responses. We will track reviews about your business on Google, Yelp and Facebook and will respond to every review, whether positive or negative. You can even chose to review and approve every response before we post them. Additionally, we monitor for reviews that violate the guidelines of Yelp, Google or Facebook and flag those reviews for you.
iii. Custom Posts to Social Media. We will work with you to create a unique marketing plan and then execute with custom posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Custom posts may also include on-demand social media campaigns related to a time-sensitive special, promotion or even that your business is running. The number of posts per week vary based on the subscription services plan.
iv. Branded Email Campaigns. Our team will design branded email campaigns for promotions, event updates, or any type of special offering to send to your subscriber list.
v. Reporting and Insights. We give you the ability to track data on every piece of content we publish and how consumers engage with the content. This data is shared with you through performance review kits.
3. Modification of Terms, Site, or Services
GoDaddy MSH Inc. may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change or modify these Terms at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting on the Site. Your use of the Services after such changes or modifications have been made shall constitute your acceptance of these Terms as last revised. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms as last revised, do not use (or continue to use) the Services. It is therefore very important that you keep your Account information current. GoDaddy MSH Inc. assumes no liability or responsibility for your failure to receive an email notification if such failure results from an inaccurate email address. In addition, GoDaddy MSH Inc. may terminate your use of Services for any violation or breach of any of the terms of these Terms by you. GODADDY MSH INC. RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MODIFY, CHANGE, OR DISCONTINUE ANY ASPECT OF THIS SITE OR THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION PRICES AND FEES FOR THE SAME, AT ANY TIME.

If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a corporate entity, you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority to bind such corporate entity to the Terms. In that if, after your electronic acceptance of the Terms, GoDaddy MSH Inc. finds that you do not have the legal authority to bind such corporate entity, you will be personally responsible for the obligations contained in these Terms, including, but not limited to, the payment obligations. GoDaddy MSH Inc. shall not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s reliance on any instruction, notice, document, or communication reasonably believed by GoDaddy MSH Inc. to be genuine and originating from an authorized representative of your corporate entity. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any such instruction, notice, document or communication, GoDaddy MSH Inc. reserves the right (but undertakes no duty) to require additional authentication from you. You further agree to be bound by the terms of these Terms for transactions entered into by you, anyone acting as your agent and anyone who uses you’re Account or the Services, whether or not authorized by you.
5. Registration/Your Account
If you want to use certain features of the Services you’ll have to create an account (“Account”), which you can do by contacting our representatives. In creating an account, you will be required to provide certain information about yourself and establish your login credentials. It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete, and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them. GoDaddy MSH Inc. will not be liable for any loss you incur due to any unauthorized use of your Account. You, however, may be liable for any loss GoDaddy MSH Inc. or others incur caused by your Account, whether caused by you, or by an authorized person, or by an unauthorized person. You may be able to create a “Business Account” for a group of Accounts for your employees and/or independent contractors providing services to your business (“Authorized Users”). To the extent you create a Business Account, each Authorized User must have his/her own Account. You and your Account administrator(s) will determine the access and policy controls for your Authorized Users within your Business Account (each with their own unique login credentials). You are responsible for all actions taken under an Authorized User’s Account, whether or not such action was authorized by an Authorized User. You are responsible for the security of each Authorized User’s Account and will not share (and will instruct each Authorized User not to share) such Account details with any other person or entity or otherwise permit any other person or entity to access or use the Services.
6. Use and Availability of the Services
We grant you, and your Authorized Users, permission to use the Services subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service, and during the applicable subscription term (“Subscription Term”).

You will promptly inform of any issue regarding the Services of which you become aware.

You acknowledge and agree that we have no control over the availability of this Site or the Service on a continuous or uninterrupted basis, and that we assume no liability to you or any other party with regard thereto.
7. Unauthorized Access
We reserve the right to exercise whatever lawful means we deem necessary to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Site, including, but not limited to, technological barriers, IP mapping, and contacting your Internet Service Provider (ISP) regarding such unauthorized use.
8. Subscription Payment and Term
By purchasing or subscribing to the Services, you agree to a minimum Subscription Term of three (3) months, during which you are obliged to maintain a subscription at the same or greater price than the subscription selected in the first month. A valid credit card is required for paying the subscription fees. Subscriptions are billed on a monthly basis at the beginning of each subscription month and are non-refundable. Please note that our fees are subject to change, although we will give you at least a month’s notice before any new fees take effect. Other than as required by applicable law, GoDaddy MSH Inc. does not retain hard copies or electronic versions of mandate, standing order or standing instruction forms and/or any signed consents relating to your usage of our automatic renewal services, and we are therefore unable to provide any such document upon request. You may change your automatic renewal settings at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT YOU DO NOT EXPERIENCE AN INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF SERVICES, ALL SERVICES ARE OFFERED ON AUTOMATIC RENEWAL. EXCEPT FOR REASONS DESCRIBED BELOW IN THIS SECTION, AUTOMATIC RENEWAL AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS THE APPLICABLE SERVICE UPON EXPIRATION OF THE THEN CURRENT TERM FOR A RENEWAL PERIOD EQUAL IN TIME TO THE MOST RECENT SERVICE PERIOD. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOUR LAST SERVICE PERIOD IS FOR ONE MONTH, YOUR RENEWAL PERIOD WILL TYPICALLY BE FOR ONE MONTH. HOWEVER, IN THE EVENT RENEWAL WITH THE PAYMENT METHOD ON FILE FAILS, GODADDY MSH INC. MAY ATTEMPT TO RENEW THE APPLICABLE SERVICE FOR A PERIOD LESS THAN THE ORIGINAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY FOR THE TRANSACTION TO SUCCEED. UNLESS YOU DISABLE THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OPTION WITHIN TWO BUSINESS DAYS BEFORE YOUR NEXT BILLING DATE, GoDaddy MSH Inc. WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW THE APPLICABLE SERVICE WHEN IT COMES UP FOR RENEWAL AND WILL TAKE PAYMENT FROM ANY PAYMENT METHOD YOU HAVE ON FILE WITH GODADDY MSH INC. AT GODADDY MSH INC.’S THEN CURRENT RATES, WHICH YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER THAN THE RATES FOR THE ORIGINAL SERVICE PERIOD. IF YOU DO NOT WISH FOR ANY SERVICE TO AUTOMATICALLY RENEW, YOU MAY ELECT TO CANCEL RENEWAL, IN WHICH CASE, YOUR SERVICES WILL TERMINATE UPON EXPIRATION OF THE THEN CURRENT TERM, UNLESS YOU MANUALLY RENEW YOUR SERVICES PRIOR TO THAT DATE (IN WHICH CASE THE SERVICES WILL AGAIN BE SET TO AUTOMATIC RENEWAL). IN OTHER WORDS, SHOULD YOU ELECT TO CANCEL YOUR PRODUCT AND FAIL TO MANUALLY RENEW YOUR SERVICES BEFORE THEY EXPIRE, YOU MAY EXPERIENCE AN INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF SERVICES, AND GODADDY MSH INC. SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY REGARDING THE SAME.

19. Disputes, Binding Individual Arbitration and Waiver of Class Actions and Class Arbitrations
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE PROVISIONS REQUIRING YOU TO RESOLVE DISPUTES THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. (A) Disputes. The terms of this Section shall apply to all Disputes between you and GoDaddy MSH Inc.. For the purposes of this Section, “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, or action between you and GoDaddy MSH Inc. arising under or relating to any GoDaddy MSH Inc.Services or Products, GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s websites, these Terms, or any other transaction involving you and GoDaddy MSH Inc., whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis, and shall be interpreted to be given the broadest meaning allowable under law. YOU AND GoDaddy MSH Inc. AGREE THAT “DISPUTE” AS DEFINED IN THESE TERMS SHALL NOT INCLUDE ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BY YOU OR GoDaddy MSH Inc. FOR (i) TRADE SECRET MISAPPROPRIATION, (ii) PATENT INFRINGEMENT, (iii) COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OR MISUSE, AND (iv) TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT OR DILUTION. Moreover, notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, you agree that a court, not the arbitrator, may decide if a claim falls within one of these four exceptions. (B) Binding Arbitration. You and GoDaddy MSH Inc. further agree: (i) to arbitrate all Disputes between the parties pursuant to the provisions in these Terms; (ii) these Terms memorialize a transaction in interstate commerce; (iii) the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1, et seq.) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Section; and (iv) this Section shall survive termination of these Terms. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JUDGE OR JURY IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND YOUR GROUNDS FOR APPEAL ARE LIMITED. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court sitting in proper jurisdiction, as limited by the Limitation of Liability set forth in Section 16 of this Agreement and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. In addition, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties. (C) Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring an individual action in the small claims court of your state or municipality if the action is within that court’s jurisdiction and is pending only in that court. (D) Dispute Notice. In the event of a Dispute, you or GoDaddy MSH Inc. must first send to the other party a notice of the Dispute that shall include a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to GoDaddy MSH Inc. must be addressed to: GoDaddy MSH Inc. c/o GoDaddy, 14455 N. Hayden Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85260, Attn.: Legal Department (the “GoDaddy MSH Inc. Notice Address”). The Dispute Notice to you will be sent by certified mail to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. If GoDaddy MSH Inc. and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or GoDaddy MSH Inc. may commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Section. Following submission and receipt of the Dispute Notice, each of us agrees to act in good faith to seek to resolve the Dispute before commencing arbitration. (E) WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS. YOU AND GoDaddy MSH Inc. AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE CLASS ACTIONS, OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS. NEITHER YOU NOR GoDaddy MSH Inc. WILL SEEK TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A CLASS ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OF PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING WILL BE COMBINED WITH ANOTHER WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES TO ALL AFFECTED ARBITRATIONS OR PROCEEDINGS. (F) Arbitration Procedure. If a party elects to commence arbitration, the arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the AAA (“AAA Rules”) in conjunction with the rules set forth in these Terms, except that AAA may not administer any multiple claimant or class arbitration, as the parties agree that the arbitration shall be limited to the resolution only of individual claims. The AAA Rules are at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms shall govern. You may, in arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to federal, state, or local laws, as limited by the Limitation of Liability set forth in Section 15 of this Agreement. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by these Terms. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also have exclusive authority to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of the arbitration agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is for (i) trade secret misappropriation, (ii) patent infringement, (iii) copyright infringement or misuse, or (iv) trademark infringement or dilution, which are excluded from the definition of “Disputes” as stated above. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone. Arbitration hearings not conducted by telephone shall take place in a location reasonably accessible from your primary residence (or principal place of business if you are a small business), or in Maricopa County, Arizona, at your option. (G) Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding. If either you or GoDaddy MSH Inc. decide to arbitrate a Dispute, we agree to the following procedure: i. Write a Demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Dispute and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org (“Demand for Arbitration: Consumer Arbitration Rules”). ii. Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to AAA by mail at American Arbitration Association Case Filing Services 1101 Laurel Oak Road, Suite 100 Voorhees, NJ 08043. iii. Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party at the same address as the Dispute Notice, or as otherwise agreed to by the parties. (H) Hearing Format. In all hearing formats, the arbitrator shall issue a written decision that explains the essential findings and conclusions on which an award, if any, is based. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by GoDaddy MSH Inc. or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or GoDaddy MSH Inc. is entitled. The discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute may be allowed during the arbitration. (I) Arbitration Fees and Payments. i. Disputes involving $75,000 or less. GoDaddy MSH Inc. will promptly reimburse your filing fees and pay the AAA’s and arbitrator’s fees and expenses. If you reject GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s last written settlement offer made before the arbitrator was appointed (“GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s last written offer”), your dispute goes all the way to an arbitrator’s decision (called an “award”), and the arbitrator awards you more than GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s last written offer, GoDaddy MSH Inc. will: (i) pay the greater of the award or $1,000; (ii) pay twice your reasonable attorney’s fees, if any; and (iii) reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration. The arbitrator will determine the amount of fees, costs, and expenses unless you and GoDaddy MSH Inc. agree on them. ii. Disputes involving more than $75,000. The AAA rules will govern payment of filing fees and the AAA’s and arbitrator’s fees and expenses. iii. Disputes involving any amount. In any arbitration you commence, GoDaddy MSH Inc. will seek its AAA or arbitrator’s fees and expenses, or your filing fees it reimbursed, only if the arbitrator finds the arbitration frivolous or brought for an improper purpose. In any arbitration GoDaddy MSH Inc. commences, GoDaddy MSH Inc. will pay all filing, AAA, and arbitrator’s fees and expenses. GoDaddy MSH Inc. will not seek its attorney’s fees or expenses from you in any arbitration. Fees and expenses are not included in determining the amount in dispute. (J) Claims or Disputes Must be Filed Within One Year. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute to which this Section applies must be filed within one year in small claims or in arbitration. The one-year period begins when the claim or Notice of Dispute first could be filed. If not filed within one year, the claim or dispute will be permanently barred. (K) 30-Day Opt-out Period. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE ARBITRATION PROVISION IN THIS DISPUTES SECTION, YOU MUST NOTIFY GoDaddy MSH Inc. BY E-MAILING LEGALOPTOUT@GODADDY.COM WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE DATE THAT YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS (UNLESS A LONGER PERIOD IS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW). In the e-mail, you must provide your (a) first name, (b) last name (c) address, (d) phone number, and (e) account number(s) and state the following: “I wish to opt out of the arbitration provision contained in GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s Terms of Service Agreement.” By providing your information in the method above, you are opting out of the agreement to arbitrate contained in GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s Terms of Service. Your opt-out request will only be valid if made within thirty (30) days of first accepting the Terms. In the event that you opt-out consistent with the procedure set forth above, all other terms shall contained herein shall continue to apply, including those related to the applicable governing law and the court(s) in which legal disputes may be brought. (L) Amendments to this Section. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, you and GoDaddy MSH Inc. agree that if GoDaddy MSH Inc. makes any future amendments to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions (other than a change to GoDaddy MSH Inc.’s address) in these Terms, GoDaddy MSH Inc. will notify you and you will have thirty (30) days from the date of notice to affirmatively opt-out of any such amendments. If you affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Section as stated in these current Terms, without any of the proposed amendments governing. If you do not affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you will be deemed to have consented to any such future amendments. (M) Severability. If any provision in this Section is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be severed with the remainder of these Terms remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing shall not apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions; if the prohibition against class or representative actions is found to be unenforceable, this entire Section shall be null and void. The terms of this Section shall otherwise survive any termination of these Terms. (N) Exclusive Venue for Other Controversies. GoDaddy MSH Inc. and you agree that any controversy excluded from the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions in this Section (other than an individual action filed in small claims court) shall be filed only in the Superior Court of Maricopa County, Arizona, or the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, and each party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such controversy. You also agree to waive the right to trial by jury in any such action or proceeding.
