Terms of Service
Last Updated: April 4, 2022.
This page explains our terms of service, which contains important information about your legal rights. When you use Volusion, you're agreeing to these terms. Everyday language summaries are provided for your convenience only and are not legally binding.
If the person entering into this Agreement is acting on behalf of an entity, all references to "Customer", "You" and "Your" shall refer to such entity and such person represents that it has the ®authority to bind such entity to this Agreement. For individuals, the Services are available only to those who are at least eighteen (18) years of age and recognized as being able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law.
By using or accessing Our Services, You are agreeing to this Agreement and that any previous agreements between You and Us with respect to the Services are superseded by this Agreement. We may change or modify this Agreement at any time at Our discretion. Any such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon the earlier of (i) Our email notification to You advising You of such changes or modifications, (ii) Your electronic acceptance of the revised Agreement after such changes or modifications have been made as indicated by the "Last Revised" date at the top of this page, or (iii) Your continued use of the Services after We post the amended Agreement to this website.
Throughout these Terms of Service, We sometimes provide summaries to the right to assist You in Your review and understanding of these terms. These summaries are not binding and are not part of this Agreement. Please make sure You read and understand the entire Agreement before using Our Services.
Account; Point of Contact; Account Ownership
- You must register for an account (the "Account") to access and use the Services by providing your full legal name, current address, phone number, a valid email address and certain other information indicated as required. You agree that all such information is current and accurate. We will use the email address that You provide as the primary method of communication, including for billing matters. We may reject Your application for an Account for any reason, in Our sole discretion.
- You shall designate a single "Point of Contact", which shall have full authority to enter into agreements and make binding decisions on Your behalf. For security reasons, only the Account owner or Point of Contact designated by the Account owner will be allowed to make account changes or cancellations or to designate a new Point of Contact. You agree that We may rely on representations made by Your Point of Contact. You may change Your Point of Contact at any time. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any instruction, notice, document or communication, We reserve the right to require additional authentication from You.
- You must keep Your password secure. We encourage You to use best practices in creating, regularly changing and securing Your password. We will not be liable for any loss or damage from Your failure to maintain the security of Your Account or Your password. You agree to immediately notify Us of any unauthorized use of Your password or any similar breach of security.
- In the event of a dispute regarding Account ownership, We reserve the right to request documentation to determine or confirm Account ownership. Documentation may include a copy of Your business license or charter, government issued photo ID, the last four digits of the credit card on file, etc. We retain the right to determine, in Our sole judgment, rightful Account ownership and transfer an Account to the rightful owner. If We are unable to reasonably determine the rightful owner of an Account, We reserve the right to temporarily disable an Account until resolution has been determined between the disputing parties.
- We will provide to You access to those Services to which You subscribe or that You purchase through Your Account (the "Purchased Services"). The Purchased Services shall include hosting of Your Sites and Your Content for access by visitors and users of Your Sites (“Your End Users”).
- Some of Our Services are offered through plans. The fees for each plan, and their applicable terms and limits, are described on Our website. Certain plans may have limitations, and We reserve the right to charge an overage fee for exceeding such limitations at then current list prices, or to automatically move You to a plan with limits that exceed Your usage.
- We reserve the right to quarantine one or more of Your Sites, throttle traffic or invoke other necessary techniques to protect Our other customers. Any such move will last as long as We deem necessary to protect Our other customers, and will not include any additional support. If any of Your Sites is the target of a DDoS or other attack, You consent to Us performing mitigation procedures with or without notice to You and without liability for any delay, disruption or interruption of service. These techniques will remain in place until Your Site experiences at least 48 hours of continuous non-malicious, "normal" traffic.
- We will update and modify Our Services from time to time. We will not be responsible for the effect an update has on any code that is not provided by Us. Any modifications to such code necessary to restore functionality to Your Site shall be Your sole responsibility.
- The servers used to provide the Services are physically located in the United States of America and, as a result, all content will be subject to the laws thereof.
- Technical support is only provided to paying Account holders and is only available to the extent specifically provided for the plan purchased.
- As a condition of Your use of the Purchased Services, You acknowledge and agree We may provide Your personal information to Our partners.
- We reserve the right to provide the Services to Your competitors and make no promise of exclusivity in any particular market segment. You further acknowledge and agree that Our employees and contractors may also be Our customers, and that they may compete with You, although they may not use Your confidential information in doing so.
- We reserve the right to refuse, modify, or suspend all or any part of Our Services to anyone for any reason, at any time and without notice. While assuming no obligation to do so, We may remove Materials and suspend or terminate Accounts or Agreements if we determine, in our sole discretion, that either the goods or services offered via a store, or the Materials uploaded or posted to a store, violate Our Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) or these Terms of Service. Volusion does not, and takes no obligation, to pre-screen any goods, services, or materials uploaded or posted to a store.
Verbal or written abuse of any kind (including threats of abuse or retribution) of any Volusion customer, Volusion employee, member, or officer can, at Our sole discretion, result in immediate Account suspension or termination.
Your Obligations and Restrictions
- We may suspend the Purchased Services to You with or without notice and without liability if: (a) We reasonably believe that You are using the Services in violation of the Agreement; (b) You don't cooperate with Our reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the Agreement; (c) there is an attack on Your Sites or Your Sites are accessed or manipulated by a third party without Your consent, (d) We are required by law, or a regulatory or government body, to suspend Your Services; or (e) there is another event for which We reasonably believe that the suspension of Services is necessary to protect Our other customers. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to give You advance notice of any such suspension unless We determine that a suspension on shorter notice or without notice is necessary to protect Us or Our other customers from imminent risk.
- You shall not use the Service in any way that shall impair the functioning or operation of Our Services or equipment. You further agree not to use the Services to:
- disseminate or transmit content that is spam, including content that is machine- or randomly-generated and/or contains unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing), or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);

You will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in Your use of the Service.
- You shall not purchase search engine or other pay per click keywords (such as Google AdWords), or domain names that use Volusion or Volusion trademarks and/or variations and misspellings thereof.

An "Application" means a software application, website, connector, extension or other independent software or interface, whether developed by Us, You or a third party and whether proprietary or open-sourced, that supplements, utilizes or and/interacts with Our Services or one or more websites using Our Services. You may also establish the appearance of Your Sites with a design template download through Our Services or otherwise (a "Theme").
- If you download an Application or a Theme that is developed by Us, You are licensed to use it for a single store only. You are not permitted to transfer or sell an Application or a Theme developed by Us to any other person.

All Applications and Themes developed by Us that are downloaded by You are considered part of the Purchased Services for purposes of this Agreement.
- Some Themes that You download may contain copyrighted material, including images, that You may not have the right to use. You should confirm Your rights to use any images included in a Theme prior to Your use on Your Sites.
- You may modify a Theme to suit Your Site and Your stores. We may modify a Theme where it contains an element that may violate Our AUP or that violates any person’s intellectual property rights, even if You received a Theme in that condition. We may modify the Theme to reflect technical changes and updates as required.
- The intellectual property rights of any Applications or Themes remains the property of the developer/designer. If You exceed the rights granted by Your purchase of an Application or a Theme, the designer (which may be Us or a third party) may take legal action against You, and We may take administrative action such as modifying Your store or closing Your store.
- WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY WHATSOEVER REGARDING APPLICATIONS OR THEMES THAT ARE NOT DEVELOPED BY US, INCLUDING THE COMPATIBILITY OF APPLICATIONS OR THEMES WITH OUR SERVICES. Your use of any such Application or Theme is governed by the terms of Your separate agreement with the provider of those products and services. Technical support for an Application or a Theme developed by a third party is the responsibility of the designer, and We accept no responsibility to provide such support.
- It is Your responsibility to ensure that the installation of an Application or a Theme does not overwrite or damage Your Content or Your current or preexisting Theme.
- We make no representations regarding the legality of any downloaded Application or Theme. It remains solely Your responsibility to ensure that You are at all times compliant with any and all laws, regulations, and rules applicable thereto, including but not limited to privacy and data laws, accessibility laws and trademark/copyright laws.
Third Party Sites and Services
- Our websites may contain links to other websites owned by third parties ("Third Party Sites"), and when you click on any of these links, you are entering another website.

You agree that We shall not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as a result of Your use of any Third Party Sites and/or Third Party Services, whether or not You were linked to or directed to a Third Party Site or Third Party Service through Our Service. You acknowledge that Third Party Sites and Third Party Services may be subject to the applicable third party provider’s terms of service, and you are solely responsible for reviewing and complying with any such terms of service. In no event shall any reference on Our website to any third party, third party website or third party product or service be construed as an approval or endorsement by Us.
- Some of Our Services may require You to give us access to or require you to provide login information and password information for Third Party Services. When You provide this information to us or give us access to these third party accounts, You agree that You have all the necessary contractual and legal rights to give Us such access, login information.
- We strongly recommend that You seek specialist advice before using or relying on certain tools. In particular, tax calculators should be used for reference only and not as a substitute for independent tax advice when assessing the correct tax rates You should charge Your End Users.

- Subject to the limited rights expressly granted to You hereunder, We and Our licensors reserve all of Our/their right, title and interest in and to the Services, including all of Our/their related intellectual property rights. No rights are granted to You hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein.

- You may not (and shall not allow any third party to): (a) use the Services outside of the scope of the limited license herein granted; (b) sublicense, distribute, copy, reproduce, resell, modify, adapt, translate, or prepare derivative works from, to the Services without Our prior written permission; or (c) reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile any software or otherwise attempt to discover any source code or trade secrets related to the Services.
- You may use Our trade name, trademarks, and service marks that are used in connection with our Volusion platform in advertising and publicity in conjunction with Your use of the Purchased Services, provided that You shall submit a copy to Us for prior written approval.

Fees and Payment
- If Your Purchased Services include Services that we offer for a fee (“Paid Services”), You agree to pay Us all such fees when due. These fees may include subscription fees, transaction fees and overage fees, the prices and terms of which are listed on Our website. Only Services and features clearly indicated as "free" or "no charge" are free or without charge.
- To ensure uninterrupted service, We will automatically bill You for certain Paid Services on a recurring basis until You cancel. The initial term of Your subscription to any Paid Services is for a term of one month, unless otherwise noted in the description of such Paid Services on Our website or as agreed by Us and You. The subscription for such Paid Services shall automatically renew for successive periods equal in time to the initial term of such subscription until cancelled by You. You may cancel a subscription to any Paid Services effective as of the end of the then current term of such subscription by contacting Our support and then following the specific instructions provided to You. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation request not being processed and You will continue to be liable for all recurring fees until such the actions specified in such instructions are complete. A cancellation of a particular Paid Service may not cancel all Services associated with Your Account. You must follow the instructions provided in order to ensure you cancel all Services desired.
- Any payments of fees are due upon purchase, and the applicable Paid Services will not begin until payment is received. Payments for Paid Services that are billed on a recurring basis are due on or before the beginning of each term of such subscription. We offer billing only via credit card or debit card. Credit card and debit card information, including card numbers, should be only submitted to Us through our online checkout feature or the administrative features of Our Services or via phone, and should never be sent to us via email, IM, chat or any other method of communication. If you purchase any Paid Services, You agree to allow Us, or our third party service providers, to store Your payment card information. If the payment card You provide expires and You do not provide new payment card information or cancel Your account, You authorize Us to continue billing You and You agree to remain responsible for any uncollected Fees.
- It is Your obligation to review all charges for accuracy. Failure to dispute a charge within 45 days following such charge shall constitute Your agreement that such charges are valid and You agree to waive any claims You may have had regarding such charge.
- If a payment of Yours to Us is returned or rejected, or incurs additional costs for Us (e.g., bank fees) for any reason, then You may be charged a service fee of $40 per incident and be required to reimburse all such fees and costs incurred by Us.
- All amounts that are past due are subject to a late payment penalty of 1.5% per month, or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is greater, until fully paid. We will attempt to automatically charge the card on file for any past due invoice for current, suspended and cancelled accounts. Accounts suspended and reactivated must pay all past due and current amounts as well as a reactivation fee any late payment penalties. Accounts past due over 30 days cannot be reactivated and You must sign up for new Services in addition to paying any outstanding amounts due.
- We reserve the right to seek collection of all past due amounts (including by referral to third party collectors), plus all reasonable legal fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) and costs associated with such collection.
- All fees charged by Us for the Services are exclusive of all taxes, VAT and similar fees imposed on the transaction and/or the delivery of Services, all of which You will be responsible for and must pay in full. If We are required to directly pay any such taxes, You must, upon receipt of Our invoice for such taxes, promptly reimburse Us.
- All sales are final and We offer no refunds of any kind unless otherwise expressly noted, even if Your Purchased Services are suspended, terminated or transferred.
- We expressly reserve the right to change Our prices and payment terms at any time, and such changes shall be posted online on Our website and effective immediately without need for further notice to You.
- Any ideas, questions, opinions, recommendations, feedback or other information related, directly or indirectly, to any of Our products and services ("Your Feedback") communicated to Us, whether by email, Our online forums, interactions with our sales or support representatives, including through chat or IM, or other communication, are considered to be non-confidential and non-proprietary. You hereby grant to Us, a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully-paid, sublicenseable and transferable right and license to incorporate, use, publish and exploit Your Feedback for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation to You or to anyone else.
- All of the following policies are incorporated into this Agreement.
- You agree to abide by Our Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"). We may modify the AUP at any time, and the then-current AUP will be effective upon posting. You acknowledge that our AUP applies to both You and Your End Users, and that We may terminate access to Your Sites with respect to any of Your End Users for their noncompliance with Our AUP, even if such End User has not violated Your own terms and conditions of use of Your Sites.
- We support the protection of intellectual property and ask our customers to do the same. It is our policy to respond to all notices of alleged copyright infringement. If someone believes that one of our customers is infringing their intellectual property rights, they can send a DMCA Notice to Our designated agent for copyright complaints. Please see our DMCA Notice and Takedown Policy for further information.
- Our Subpoena Policy describe the guidelines and process for our release of data concerning You or Your Account pursuant to a subpoena issued in a civil legal matter or a criminal legal matter or investigation.
- The most recent version of the Uniform Name Dispute Resolution Policy can be found at https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/help/dndr/udrp-en
- Our Services provide a framework that is certified under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”) under optimal security settings and will maintain compliance with the PCI Data Security Standards ("DSS") for the portions of the Purchased Services that store or process credit card data. If You store or process credit card data using the Purchased Services, You agree to implement and maintain reasonable security measures to protect cardholder data in Your possession and You hereby acknowledge Your responsibilities under the PCI DSS. These guidelines can be found at https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/document_library. You further agree not to take any action, or fail to take any action that is required of You by PCI DSS, when using the Purchased Services that could cause us to not be in compliance with PCI DSS.
- At Our discretion, We reserve the right to change the security settings at any time with or without warning and to suspend or terminate the Services for any customer that is suspected or proven to be in violation of PCI DSS.
- We will provide the current PCI-DSS Attestation of Compliance to Volusion customers upon written request.
Service Level Warranty
- We warrant that Our network will be available 99.9% of the time in any month. For these purposes, network availability for any month is calculated as a percentage by dividing (x) the total minutes in such month, less the minutes of Network Downtime (as defined below), by (y) the total minutes in such month. "Network Downtime" exists when You are unable to transmit and receive data on the Volusion platform and You notify Us of such downtime. Network Downtime shall exclude performance issues: (1) to the extent caused by factors outside of Our reasonable control; (2) that resulted from any actions or inactions of You or any third parties not affiliated with Us, for example a DDOS attack on Your site or another customer's site hosted on the same server; (3) that resulted from Your equipment and/or third party equipment; (4) that resulted from software related issues; or (5) that are scheduled by Us for purposes of maintaining or updating the Services. Network Downtime is measured from the time the trouble ticket is opened by You to the time the server is once again able to transmit and receive data.
- If Our network is not available for 99.9% in any month, upon request We will refund You 5% of the monthly fee for each 30 minutes of Network Downtime (up to and not to exceed 100% of customer's monthly fee) that exceeds the amount of Network Downtime that would result in 99.9% network availability. This is Your sole and exclusive remedy for failure to meet the Service Level Warranty. If You fail to notify Us of Network Downtime as required above, or fail to request a Service Level Warranty credit within 30 days of the end of a month, You shall not be entitled to receive such credit for such event or such month.
- You irrevocably agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Us, Our affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action, suits, proceedings, losses, damages, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and fees attributable to in house legal personnel, arising from of or related to (i) Your breach of this Agreement or Your violation of any law or rights of any third party, (ii) Your Content and/or Design or (iii)any claim by, on behalf of or against Your End Users, (iv) Your violation of any law or regulation or the rights, including intellectual property rights, of any third party, and (v) any claims of tax authorities of any country, state, province or other jurisdiction levied on sales to Your End Users. This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification required under the UDRP or any similar policy.
