This Template can be modified and customized by use of the Service, through Faithmade’s proprietary Content Management System “CMS”. Website Templates are assigned unique URL addresses using a subdomain (https://sitename.Faithmade.com/) and are meant to be visited directly at those addresses, or visited by pointing a unique domain (purchased separately from a third-party domain registrar) at them, such as the Organization’s website address.

Websites You create using the Faithmade Web Development Services shall only be hosted by Faithmade in accordance with the Faithmade Web Hosting service described in this agreement.

9.2 – Use and Security of Cardholder Data. For purposes of this Section, the term “Cardholder Data” or “CDI” refers to the number assigned by the card issuer that identifies the cardholder’s account or other cardholder personal information, and “Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII” means any CDI or other personal or financial data relating to any individual or entity.
To the extent You make an online credit card purchase or bank ACH transfer to Faithmade as a part of the Purchase Process or otherwise, Faithmade will initiate a secure payment process including acquisition of Your credit card or bank information related PII, and pass that information through Faithmade’s third-party transaction processing service providers. After the initial purchase, your credit card or bank information data (including but not limited to your card or account number, expiration date, name and address) will be stored in a secure “vault” system. The stored card data will then be used to make recurring payments (monthly or yearly at Your option).
Faithmade shall not be held liable for the security of third party servers or providers. These third-party providers maintain their own compliance and privacy policies and Faithmade is not responsible in any way for the performance, security, or availability of their systems or services.

You are responsible for determining and paying any and all taxes and duties, including without limitation, sales, use, transfer, value added, withholding, income, and other taxes and/or duties assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld for any reason in connection with your use of the Service and the Site, or otherwise in connection with any action, inaction, or omission by you or any affiliate of yours, or any of your or their respective employees, agents, contractors, or representatives. You also are responsible for collecting, withholding, reporting, and remitting correct Taxes to the appropriate tax authority. We are not obligated to determine whether Taxes apply and are not responsible for calculating, collecting, reporting, or remitting any Taxes to any tax authority arising from any payment or financial transaction.

If Your selected payment method is invalid or You are otherwise past due in your payments for any reason, the Service may be terminated and removed from Faithmade’s servers by Faithmade with or without notice, and all the information contained within deleted permanently. Faithmade accepts no liability for information or content that is deleted due to an invalid payment method or where Your payments are past due.
- b.) Reactivation of the Service after termination or cancellation for any reason may require the payment of additional setup or reactivation fees.
