Waves of Welcome: A Digital Aloha
Aloha, internet adventurer! You've just washed ashore on the sands of https://www.totalcarewebsites.com, the digital paradise brought to you by the humble web wizards at Elegant Software Solutions, Inc. (ESS). and we're as giddy as a schoolgirl about you choosing us for your website escapades. By signing up for our services, you're giving a big, enthusiastic "Yup, I'm in!" to these Terms of Service. If, however, you find them about as appealing as a sand sandwich, we might have to regrettably suggest you paddle your digital canoe back out into the online ocean.
Twist and Shout: Our Changing Terms
Just as life's about as predictable as a cat on a hot tin keyboard, we too reserve the right to toss in an occasional curveball and tweak these terms a little (or a lot). Looking for the most recent, up-to-the-minute, hotter-than-freshly-baked-pixel-pie version of these terms? Well, keep those peepers right here! Consider it your digital home base, like your favorite social media platform, but with fewer cat memes.
The Treasure Chest: Services and Fees Unveiled
Our prices stand proudly on our website, like a captain at the helm of his ship. If you spot a price that seems more out of place than a penguin in a desert, chalk it up to a mischievous little typo having a laugh. We'll whip that cheeky error into shape faster than you can say "404 page not found." Our monthly charges are as steady as a lighthouse beam, with a one-off setup fee being your VIP pass to the wild and wonderful world of Total Care Websites.
Unleashing the Unlimited: The Wild and Wacky Fair Usage Adventure
Oh, and let's not forget to mention the Fair Usage Policy. While we love to shower our customers with unlimited goodness, we do have a Fair Usage Policy in place for our websites. Now, we know that 99.9% of our customers will never have to worry about this, but for those intrepid souls who want to peel back the onion of the term "unlimited" that we use so much, we invite you to have a read over our Fair Usage Policy. It's like a thrilling treasure hunt, but instead of gold doubloons, you'll find all the nitty-gritty details of our unlimited offerings. Happy exploring!
Cancellation: Bid Farewell or Embark on New Adventures
Life is full of twists and turns, and we understand that sometimes you may need to part ways with Total Care Websites. But fret not, we're here to make the process as smooth as silk. So, let's talk about cancellation and what it means for your digital journey.

No contractual handcuffs, just a digital adventure at your fingertips!
- No Prorated Cancellations: When it's time to say goodbye, we want to be fair and transparent.

It's our way of ensuring you get the most value out of your Total Care Websites experience. Farewell, but with a final billing nod of respect!
- Easy Goodbyes: Ending the journey with us is as simple as a click of a button. You can cancel your subscription at any time through our user-friendly Customer Portal. No need to jump through hoops or navigate complicated mazes; just a hassle-free cancellation process designed with your convenience in mind.
- Preserving Your Digital Sanctuary When you bid farewell, we won't immediately hit the delete button on your website's code and data. We'll keep them tucked away safely for a period of 90 days. This way, if you decide to return to the Total Care Websites family, we can effortlessly reignite the spark without charging you another setup fee. Your digital home awaits with open pixels!
- Come Back, We Miss You Sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder, and we'll be thrilled to welcome you back with open arms.

- Publishing Authority: As the custodians of the publishing realm, we bear the responsibility of releasing your digital masterpiece to the world. We kindly request that you entrust us with the task of publishing content on your behalf. However, we also acknowledge the importance of collaboration, allowing you to provide us with content and copy for publication. It is crucial that any content you share adheres to legal requirements, respects the rights of others, and refrains from any unlawful or unethical practices.
- eCommerce Enchantments: For our intrepid explorers of eCommerce, we recognize your desire to showcase your exceptional products to the world.

The Intellectual Property Dance: Your Moves and Ours
Welcome to the captivating world of intellectual property, where creativity and ownership intertwine in a harmonious dance. We're here to shed some light on the steps of this dance and ensure that everyone knows their moves.
At Total Care Websites, we believe in transparency and want to make sure you have a clear understanding of how intellectual property works within our services. So, let's put on our dancing shoes and hit the dance floor!
When it comes to the code and materials used in your website, it's essential to set the stage right. Total Care Websites utilizes a diverse range of platforms, including our own, to power and host your websites. Each website we create is a unique performance, but it's important to note that it shares common elements with other websites under our care. Think of it as a grand production with a shared ensemble of actors, each performing their part.
Now, here's the twist: the code that brings your website to life is not a work-for-hire arrangement. It's more like a synchronized dance routine choreographed by our talented team. While you get to enjoy the spectacular performance, the code itself remains the property of Total Care Websites. We've crafted it with care, refining and perfecting it over time to provide exceptional experiences for all our customers.
But fear not, our dear customer, for this dance is a duo. While we retain ownership of the code, you maintain full ownership of the materials you provide. Your images, copy, and any other materials you contribute to the creation of your website are always yours. It's like having your own solo spotlight on the stage. You grant us a non-transferable license to use these materials on your website, ensuring that your unique voice and vision shine through.
Now, let's talk about extracting the code. Should the need ever arise, we can certainly waltz down that path. However, it's important to note that extracting the code from our shared platform requires additional effort and resources. Just like a special encore performance, this service comes with an extra fee. We'll work closely with you to understand your specific requirements and provide a tailored solution that aligns with your needs.
Remember, the dance of intellectual property is a delicate balance between the collective and the individual. While we strive to provide exceptional services at an affordable price, the ownership of the underlying code remains with Total Care Websites. Your website is part of a larger ensemble, benefiting from the collective effort and expertise that goes into maintaining our platform.
So, let's continue this dance together, embracing the rhythm of intellectual property. You can rest assured that while we retain ownership of the code, your unique materials will always belong to you. Together, we'll create a stunning performance that showcases your brand and captivates your audience. It's time to shine on the stage of the digital world with Total Care Websites by your side!
Unlocking the Code: Purchasing the Source Code
We understand that for some of our clients, owning the code that powers their website is of utmost importance. We appreciate your enthusiasm, and we're here to provide you with an opportunity to unlock the code through our special Source Code Purchase option. Let's delve into the details and find the perfect arrangement for you.
Building a website is a labor of love, and our team of skilled developers invests their expertise and time to create a captivating online presence for your business. Our standard development rates average at $200 per hour, and the process typically takes around 240 man hours to bring your website to life. By simple arithmetic, you can see that this amounts to an investment of $48,000 based on Time and Materials.
Now, here's an interesting tidbit: such rates are not uncommon in the industry, with many larger agencies starting at similar price points and even scaling higher. When you engage with those agencies under a work-for-hire arrangement, you rightfully gain ownership of the code.
However, at Total Care Websites, we offer you an incredible value proposition. For a modest setup fee of $1,249 and an affordable monthly subscription ranging from $249 to $349, depending on your chosen plan, we provide you with a comprehensive suite of services that go beyond just the code. Our concierge service ensures your website is in top shape, offering ongoing support, updates, and peace of mind. It's a complete package designed to provide exceptional value at a fraction of the industry's typical rates.
To maintain this affordability, we've adopted a structure where the code itself remains the property of Total Care Websites. We have a responsibility to protect ourselves from any potential misuse or exploitation. Rest assured, this approach allows us to offer you an incredible service at a price point that makes sense for small businesses.
However, we understand that some clients have a strong desire to possess the code outright. If you fall into this category, we have an option that caters to your needs. For a fee of $25,000, which is half our standard market rates, we will extract the entire code and provide you with a perpetual non-transferable license. This arrangement allows you to have full control and ownership of the code, empowering you with the flexibility to make any modifications or future decisions regarding its use.
We believe this fee strikes a fair balance, offering significant savings compared to our standard market rates, while providing you with the opportunity to unlock the code. It's a win-win situation that ensures you receive excellent value for your investment.
However, we want to emphasize that the true benefit of Total Care Websites lies in our comprehensive monthly concierge service. Our expertise, support, and ongoing maintenance are instrumental in ensuring your website's success. We've carefully crafted our business model to depend on recurring revenue, which allows us to provide you with exceptional service at an affordable price. It's a long-term partnership where we grow together over time.
We appreciate your understanding that building and maintaining a sustainable and profitable business takes time and dedication. While other providers may sell websites for a one-time fee, our approach enables us to deliver a top-notch service that continues to evolve and improve, setting you up for long-term success.
So, whether you choose to embrace the benefits of our all-inclusive service or opt to unlock the code through the Source Code Purchase option, we're committed to providing you with a remarkable digital experience. At Total Care Websites, we're here to support your journey every step of the way, ensuring your website thrives and grows alongside your business. Let's embark on this exciting adventure together!
eCommerce and the Shopify Platform: Code Ownership Clarification
For our valued eCommerce customers, we want to provide some clarity regarding the code ownership within the context of our services on the Shopify platform. At Total Care Websites, we strive to be transparent about the code components and limitations associated with eCommerce websites, ensuring you have a comprehensive understanding of what can be offered in terms of code ownership.
As an eCommerce customer utilizing our services, it's important to note that the Shopify platform serves as the foundation for your online store. Shopify provides a robust and feature-rich environment that powers the functionality and backend operations of your eCommerce website. It encompasses various elements such as the shopping cart, payment processing, inventory management, and order fulfillment.
Given this framework, it's important to understand that the core code of the Shopify platform, along with any third-party modules or plugins we integrate to enhance your eCommerce experience, remains the property and intellectual property of Shopify and the respective developers who created those modules. These components are not available for us to sell or transfer to anyone.
However, when it comes to the front-end code and any custom code specifically developed by our team for your eCommerce website, we can certainly provide you with access to that portion. This includes any unique design elements, customizations, and features that have been tailor-made to align with your brand and business requirements.
We want to ensure that you have full clarity regarding the scope of code ownership within the Shopify ecosystem. While we cannot provide ownership of the underlying Shopify platform or third-party modules, we are committed to empowering you with the code assets that are within our control and customizations created specifically for your eCommerce store.
Rest assured, we will work closely with you to extract and deliver the front-end code and any custom code developed by our team, providing you with the flexibility to further enhance and modify your website as needed. Our goal is to enable you to have autonomy over the code components that we can offer while harnessing the powerful capabilities of the Shopify platform.
As always, our dedicated support team is here to address any questions or concerns you may have regarding code ownership and customization possibilities. We value your partnership and remain committed to providing a seamless eCommerce experience that aligns with your unique brand vision and objectives.
Total Care Websites and the Shopify platform together form a powerful combination, empowering you to thrive in the world of online commerce. Let's continue this exciting journey, delivering exceptional eCommerce experiences for your customers while leveraging the capabilities of the Shopify platform and our expertise.
Subscription Plan and Code Ownership for Total Care Websites
For our valued Subscription Plan customers, we want to provide clarity on the code ownership aspects related to our services. Total Care Websites is dedicated to transparency and ensuring you understand the ownership of the code components involved in your subscription-based websites.
When it comes to our Subscription Plan, the majority of the code used is custom code developed by our expert team. This custom code is owned by us, and we can provide you with access to it. It includes the core functionalities, unique features, and customizations that make your website tailored to your specific requirements and brand identity.
However, it's important to note that we utilize certain external services to enhance the functionality and security of your subscription-based website. These services include Stripe for payment processing and Auth0 for identity management. While we integrate these services seamlessly into your website, it's crucial to understand that we do not own the code associated with Stripe or Auth0.
Stripe and Auth0 provide Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that allow us to interact with their services and incorporate their functionalities into your website. An API, in simple terms, is a set of rules and protocols that enable different software systems to communicate and interact with each other. It allows us to leverage the secure payment processing capabilities of Stripe and the robust identity management features of Auth0.
As a result, we cannot provide ownership or access to the code belonging to Stripe or Auth0. These external services remain the property and intellectual property of their respective providers. However, any code we develop to consume Stripe's APIs or integrate with Auth0's functionality is owned by us and can be made available to you as part of your subscription-based website.
Rest assured, we are committed to empowering you with the custom code components that we have developed specifically for your website. This ensures that you have control and flexibility over the functionalities, design elements, and customizations within our domain.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding code ownership, our dedicated support team is here to assist you. We value your partnership and remain committed to delivering exceptional subscription-based websites that align with your unique needs and objectives.
Total Care Websites and our Subscription Plan combine the power of custom code and integration with external services to provide you with a comprehensive solution. Let's continue this journey together, leveraging the capabilities of our own APIs while harnessing the secure payment processing of Stripe and the identity management features of Auth0.
Navigating the Twists and Turns of Liability: A Rollercoaster Ride
At Total Care Websites, we take our responsibilities seriously, but we also believe in infusing a touch of lightheartedness into the world of legal jargon. Buckle up, because we're about to take you on a thrilling rollercoaster ride through the realm of liability.
First things first, let's set the stage. Our website and the materials within it are provided "as is" – no frills, no fancy embellishments. We strive to provide accurate and reliable information, but we must disclaim any warranties, whether expressed or implied. We're like a solid pair of hiking boots, reliable and functional, but not adorned with flashy diamonds.
Now, here comes the exciting part. In no event shall Total Care Websites or its suppliers be held liable for any consequential loss suffered or incurred by you or any third party. We're not talking about losing your favorite pair of socks here; we're referring to those rollercoaster moments in life that can leave you feeling like you've been through a loop-de-loop. Picture a wild ride on a rollercoaster, with unexpected twists and turns – that's the nature of liability.
But fear not! Our primary goal is to provide a reliable and secure online experience. We work tirelessly behind the scenes, partnering with leading cloud providers and employing state-of-the-art technology to minimize risks and ensure smooth operations. We may not have control over every twist and turn in the digital landscape, but we've teamed up with the best to offer you a thrilling and safe ride.
We must mention that while our esteemed partners like Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS boast impressive uptimes, we don't offer any guarantees. They've mastered the art of near-perfection with their 99.9% uptime promises, but we're not part of their crew. Joining their elite club would require us to increase our prices to stratospheric levels, which would make Total Care Websites unaffordable for small businesses. So, while we can't promise a rollercoaster ride without a few bumps, we assure you we're doing our utmost to keep the track as smooth as possible.
Remember, life's rollercoaster is full of surprises, and the same goes for the digital world. We're here to hold your virtual hand and navigate those loops and drops together. We may not have control over every twist of fate, but we're committed to ensuring your satisfaction and providing a secure and enjoyable online experience.
So, hop on board, hold on tight, and get ready for a thrilling adventure with Total Care Websites. We're dedicated to accompanying you on this wild ride and making it as exhilarating, yet safe, as possible. Let's embrace the unexpected twists and turns of liability with a smile on our faces and a spirit of adventure in our hearts.
Indemnification: The Well-Mannered Agreement Not to Sue
Now, we don't expect to trip up, but if we do and you stumble as a result (we're talking metaphorically here, of course), you agree not to hold us accountable for those missteps. This basically means that by using our services, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Total Care Websites, and our officers, directors, employees, contractors, service providers, and agents, from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) that may arise from your use (or misuse) of our services.
This includes, but isn't limited to, your violation of these terms, any agreement with a provider of third-party services used in connection with the services, any content you make available through the services, or any actions taken by a third party using your access to the services. Legal jargon aside, if something goes awry, we promise to have a good heart-to-heart with you about it first before bringing out the big guns.
Remember, we're all in this together, and we want to make your web experience as smooth as a dolphin's back (trust us, it's pretty smooth). This doesn't mean we're saying you'll run into issues, but we live in an unpredictable world, and we want to cover all bases like a seasoned baseball player.
Embrace the Quirks and Perks: Our Hilariously Human Waiver
Ah, the waiver section! It may seem like a bit of legal jargon, but fear not, we're here to demystify it with clarity and a sprinkle of humor. So, let's delve into the depths of the waiver provisions in our Terms of Service.
By agreeing to our Terms of Service, you're acknowledging that sometimes life throws us curveballs and unexpected challenges arise. The waiver provision is our way of clarifying that, despite our best intentions and efforts, we can't guarantee a perfect and flawless experience at all times.
But wait, what does this mean for you, our valued customer? It means that you understand and accept that we're human (most of us, at least) and that our services are subject to occasional limitations and imperfections. It's a gentle reminder that we're always striving to provide the best service possible, but there may be circumstances beyond our control.
Now, this doesn't mean we're shirking our responsibilities or leaving you high and dry. Quite the opposite! We take pride in our commitment to customer satisfaction and will always go above and beyond to address any issues that arise.
The waiver provision is simply a way to clarify that, while we aim for excellence, we can't be held liable for every little hiccup along the way. It's a mutual understanding that we're in this together, navigating the vast digital realm, where unforeseen events can occasionally throw us off course.
Rest assured, this waiver doesn't strip you of your rights or prevent you from seeking recourse if there are genuine grievances. It's not a shield of invincibility, nor a cloak of invisibility. Instead, it's a realistic acknowledgment that even with our web-wizardry skills, we're not infallible.
Think of the waiver as a safety net—a means to foster open communication and resolve any issues in a fair and reasonable manner. We want you to feel confident that we're here to listen, collaborate, and find solutions that ensure your satisfaction.
So, let's embrace this waiver provision, understanding that it's not about escaping responsibility, but about setting realistic expectations and establishing a foundation of trust. Together, we can navigate the digital landscape, overcome obstacles, and create an enchanting online presence.
Accuracy of Materials: Seeking the Truth Amidst the Digital Maze
At Total Care Websites, we strive to provide accurate and reliable information to our cherished users. However, let's face it—the digital realm can sometimes resemble a labyrinth of data where truth and falsehood intertwine like a complex dance routine. While we make every effort to ensure the materials on our website are accurate and up to date, we must acknowledge that the vastness of the online world poses its own challenges. The information provided on our website is intended for general purposes only and should not be considered comprehensive or infallible.
Think of us as your trusty guide through the digital maze, equipped with a map and a flashlight. We do our best to navigate through the ever-evolving landscape, but occasionally, a hidden path or an unforeseen detour may throw us off course. Therefore, we kindly ask you to approach the materials on our website with a discerning eye. Double-check facts, cross-reference information, and use your own judgment to ensure accuracy. In this collaborative journey, we encourage you to be an active participant in the quest for truth amidst the vast digital realm.
If you happen to stumble upon any inaccuracies or discrepancies, please let us know. We appreciate the collective effort to maintain the integrity of information and improve the overall user experience. Together, we can embark on a quest for knowledge and accuracy, forging a path that shines a light on the truth in this ever-changing digital landscape.
Right of Refusal: The Great Balancing Act
At Total Care Websites, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch services to our valued customers. However, we must maintain a delicate equilibrium to ensure the harmonious functioning of our platform. Hence, we reserve the Right of Refusal, which is our way of saying, "Oops, maybe this isn't the right fit." While we strive to cater to a wide range of businesses and individuals, there may be rare occasions where we might need to decline our services. It's not personal, really! We just want to ensure that our resources are allocated efficiently and effectively to provide the best possible experience for all parties involved. Think of it as a cosmic sorting hat, meticulously analyzing the needs, goals, and compatibility factors to determine if Total Care Websites is the magical solution for you. We want to ensure that our collaboration is a seamless journey filled with success and growth.
Rest assured, we will always communicate openly and honestly if we find ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to exercise our Right of Refusal. We'll work with you to explore alternative options that may better align with your specific requirements. Remember, it's not the end of the world if we exercise this right. In fact, it's an opportunity for both parties to find the perfect match and set sail on separate but equally rewarding paths. So let's keep the doors of possibility open, embrace the adventure, and create extraordinary online experiences together.
Severability: Like a Caterpillar Becoming Two Butterflies
Let's think of this agreement as a caterpillar - a cute, multi-legged, legal caterpillar. Now, if for some ungodly reason, a part of this caterpillar (i.e., an agreement clause) was found to be unenforceable or illegal, instead of the whole caterpillar getting squished (the whole agreement falling apart), we'll simply transform that part into a beautiful butterfly and let it fly away into the sunset (we'll remove or edit that part), while the rest of the caterpillar continues to wriggle on happily (the remaining agreement stays intact).
So, in legal parlance, if any part of these Terms is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired. Our agreement will continue to stand as robust and strong as an age-old oak tree, undeterred by the occasional falling leaf.
In simpler terms, it's like having a salad and finding a bad leaf. You wouldn't throw away the whole salad, right? You'd just remove that leaf and continue enjoying your healthy meal. That's exactly how we handle such scenarios here at Total Care Websites. And yes, we've had our share of bad salad leaves!
Governing Law, or How We Are Basically Double Agents
Listen up, my friends! When it comes to the serious business of which state's laws govern this Agreement, we're playing a little bit of a two-state shuffle. You see, Total Care Websites is a domestic entity in Delaware, but a foreign entity in Georgia. Kind of like a legal version of a Clark Kent/Superman thing. We might be sipping on sweet tea and munching on peach cobbler here in the good ol' Peach State, but when the legal rubber meets the road, we tighten up our ties and put on our Delaware law hats.
So, despite our Georgia twang, all legal matters relating to this Agreement will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the great state of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. In the world of contracts and lawsuits, we're as Delawarean as a screen door in a submarine (or a corporate office in Wilmington, if you prefer). And remember, even though we love our Georgia peaches and southern charm, we still march to the beat of that Delaware drum when the gavel comes down. The First State might be small in size, but it's big in corporate law. This is just our way of keeping things as neat as a pin and as tidy as a stack of freshly ironed legal documents.
Force Majeure: Aliens, Zombies, and Raccoons Who've Discovered Fire
In our universe of unpredictability, where the cosmos conspires and manifests in ways even Nostradamus would've struggled to predict, there exists a concept known as "Force Majeure." If you're picturing a strong, caped superhero who can keep your website up and running through all kinds of unforeseen disasters, well... I hate to break it to you, but that's not quite it.
In the legal world, Force Majeure is like the "it wasn't me" of contract law. It refers to exceptional, unpredictable events (also known as acts of God) that are beyond our control. This might include, but certainly isn't limited to, things like natural disasters, wars, strikes, riots, pandemics, government actions, or even phenomena like alien invasions, a zombie apocalypse, or hyper-intelligent raccoons figuring out how to start fires.
Now, if such extraordinary events prevent us from performing our obligations under this agreement (like keeping your website running smoothly), we'd be temporarily relieved from those obligations. But don't worry, as soon as the aliens retreat, the zombies are quelled, or the raccoons are negotiated with, we'll get right back to ensuring that your website is the best it can be.
Remember, we're in this together - come rain, shine, or the occasional force majeure event. But seriously, we're not responsible if zombies eat the server.
Got questions, comments, or just want to chat about these terms? Reach out to us! We love hearing from our clients. In fact, it's often the highlight of our day.
By using our services, you're acknowledging that you've read and understood these terms. It's like our little pact that helps everything run smoothly.
Now, let's get back to creating those amazing websites, shall we?
