Acceptance of Terms
Andy Sozot (“Provider”) provides software and website services to you subject to the following Terms of Service (“TOS”). If you do not agree to the TOS, then you should not use the sozot.com website.
The WordPress themes, plugins, extensions & snippets authored by Provider and/or provided on sozot.com are licensed under the GNU general public license.
Some of the products that are sold on sozot.com are created by third-party vendors. While all of the WordPress-interactive code of those products is licensed under the GPL, there may be other content, such as images and Cascading Style Sheets (“CSS”) files, licensed under proprietary terms. Please review the licensing terms included with any purchases for the terms that apply to it.
Provider offers digital media (software) that can be downloaded instantly after a purchase has been made. There is no “trial” or “grace period” after purchasing any product which means all sales are final. Once you have purchased the software, there is no way to “return” it.
Provider products and designs are provided “as is”, with no implied warranty that they will function exactly as you wish or with all third party components and plugins. No support will be provided via email.
Third-party products provided are supported by their authors and not by Provider. Please review the support terms provided by the author of a product before purchasing it.
Each individual product purchased from Provider includes complimentary updates for 12 months from the date of purchase. If customers continue their annual subscription after the 12 month period has lapsed, they will continue to receive updates up until the subscription expires.
Customers will be required to create an account when purchasing any products. They are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their password and are not permitted to share and/or distribute their account login details. Customers are fully responsible for all activities that occur under their account and agree to immediately notify Provider of any unauthorized use of their account or any other breach of security. Provider will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from customer failure to comply with these terms. Please note that Provider requires that all users be over the age of 13 to have a customer account.
Account Termination and Suspension
Provider reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate any user account without notice, in its sole and absolute discretion. No refunds will be provided to customers who have their accounts terminated. Examples of reasons for termination include: 1) Abusive behavior and/or excessive negativity towards the Provider staff and/or other Provider customers; 2) Repeated defamatory, malicious, and/or false statements including slander against Provider, and/or attempts to persuade potential customers away from purchasing Provider products; 3) Promoting competitor products, contributing to software piracy, hacking, spamming, or other illegal acts; 4) Provider reasonably believes that your account has been compromised, shared with others, or for other security reasons.
After Provider has successfully received customer payment, customer account login information will be emailed to the email address provided during signup. This may take up to 30 minutes after purchase but usually happens within 5-10 minutes.
Provider reserves the right at any time to modify and/or discontinue a product with or without notice. Further, Provider may add new products and/or services with or without notice. Prices of any products are subject to change at any time by posting the changes to the Provider website.

Other Guidelines Or Terms. If there is a conflict between this TOS and those for a specific Provider service, the terms for the specific service will prevail.
No Third Party Beneficiaries. These terms control the relationship between Provider and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.
No Waiver. If you do not comply with these terms, and Provider does not take action right away, this doesn’t mean Provider is giving up or waiving any rights, such as the right to take action in the future.
Severability. If a particular term in the TOS is not legally enforceable, it will not affect the other terms.
