All Ebonynsweet Services
- Your Account
We may limit your access to our Services until we can verify your account information, like your email address.
When you create an ebonynsweet.com account, we consider that to be an inquiry about our products and services, which means that we may also contact you to share more details about what we have to offer (i.e., marketing). If you aren’t interested, you can opt out of marketing communications, whether it’s an email, phone call, or text message.
You’re solely responsible and liable for all activity under your account. You’re also fully responsible for maintaining the security of your account (which includes keeping your password secure). We’re not liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred due to your acts or omissions. If you get fired because of a blog post you write about your boss, that’s on you.
All written blog posts including text, imagery and documentation that is published on ebonynsweet.com is the property of ebonynsweet.com. Any replicated site content must be authorized in advanced. Content from this site shall not be used or exploited for commercial or non-commercial purposes without the prior written consent of the Owner of Ebonynsweet.
Don’t share or misuse your access credentials. And notify us immediately of any unauthorized uses of your account, store, website, or any other security breach. If we believe your account has been compromised, we may suspend or disable it.
- Minimum Age Requirements
Our Services are not directed to children. You’re not allowed to access or use our Services if you’re under the age of 18 (or 18 in Europe). If you register as a user or otherwise use our Services, you represent that you’re at least 18 (or 18 in Europe). You may use our Services only if you can legally form a binding contract with us. In other words, if you’re under 18 years of age (or the legal age of majority where you live), you can only use our Services under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to the Agreement.
- Responsibility of Visitors and Users
We haven’t reviewed, and can’t review, all of the content (like text, photo, video, audio, code, computer software, items for sale, and other materials) posted to or made available through our Services by users or anyone else (“Content”) or on websites that link to, or are linked from, our Services. We’re not responsible for any use or effects of Content or third-party websites. So, for example:
We don’t have any control over third-party websites.
A link to or from one of our Services does not represent or imply that we endorse any third-party website.
We don’t endorse any Content or represent that content is accurate, beneficial, or not harmful. Content could be offensive, indecent, or objectionable; include technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, or other errors; or violate or infringe third parties’ privacy, publicity rights, intellectual property rights, or other proprietary rights.
You’re responsible for taking the necessary precautions to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content.
Any content for sale through any of our Services is the seller’s sole responsibility, so you must look solely to the seller for any damages that result from your purchase or use of content.
We are not a party to, and will have no responsibility or liability for, any communications, transactions, interactions, or disputes between you and any content provider.
Additional third-party terms and conditions may apply to content you download, copy, purchase, or use.
- Fees, Payment, and Renewal
a. Ebonynsweet Fees
Fees for Paid Services. Some of our Services are offered for a fee, like V.I.P. Membership plans, WooCommerce themes or extensions, Jetpack plans, Jetpack CRM bundles, VaultPress plans, Happy Tools, MailPoet plans, the Payments feature, WooCommerce Payments, Email, and domain registration and renewal (collectively, “Paid Services”). By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees. Depending on the Paid Service, there may be one-time fees, recurring fees, or revenue-based fees. For recurring fees, we’ll bill or charge you in the automatically-renewing interval (such as monthly, annually, or biennially) you select, on a pre-pay basis until you cancel, which you can do at any time by contacting the relevant support team. For revenue-based fees — such as fees for the Payments feature — you pay us a percentage of the revenue your website generates. Revenue-based fees are ongoing.
Taxes. To the extent permitted by law, or unless explicitly stated otherwise, all fees do not include applicable federal, provincial, state, local, or other governmental sales, value-added, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees, or charges (“Taxes”). You’re responsible for paying all applicable taxes relating to your use of our Services, your payments, or your purchases. If we’re obligated to pay or collect Taxes on the fees you’ve paid or will pay, you’re responsible for those Taxes, and we may collect payment.
Payment. If your payment fails, Paid Services are otherwise not paid for or paid for on time (for example, if you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services), or we suspect a payment is fraudulent, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to Paid Services without Notice to you.
Automatic Renewal. To ensure uninterrupted service, recurring Paid Services are automatically renewed. Unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew. You authorize us to use any payment mechanism we have on record for you, like credit cards or PayPal, or invoice you (in which case payment is due within 15 days) to collect the then-applicable subscription fee and any Taxes. By default, your Paid Services will be renewed for the same interval as your original subscription period, so for example, if you purchase a one-year subscription to a Members.Ebonynsweet.com plan, you’ll be charged each 30 days. We may charge your account up to one month before the end of the subscription period to make specific pesky billing issues don’t inadvertently disrupt your access to our Services. The date for the automatic renewal is based on the date of the original purchase and cannot be changed. If you’ve purchased access to multiple services, you may have various renewal dates.
You can view your renewal date(s) and manage subscriptions for members.ebonynsweet.com Paid Services by visiting your Manage Purchases page. For more information about how Ebonynsweet.com subscriptions work, please see our Manage Purchases, Renewals & Cancellations support page.
To review renewal dates and manage subscriptions for any other Paid Services, please consult the Administrator.
You’ll need to check your email (including spam or other filters) for any reminder emails we might send you before your Paid Services renew.
Canceling Automatic Renewal. You can manage and cancel your Paid Services at the respective service’s website.
If auto-renew is successfully turned off, you’ll see the date on which your subscription expires. If you have multiple Paid Services to cancel, repeat this process for each subscription.
Fees and Charges. We may change our fees at any time in accordance with these Terms and requirements under applicable law. This means that we may change our fees in the future, start charging fees for previously free services, or remove or update features or functionality that were previously included in the fees. If you disagree with the changes, you must cancel your Paid Service.
b. Fees Collected by Website Owners
If you buy items or subscriptions from a website, you’re purchasing directly from the website owner, and they’re solely responsible for the items sold. Please contact the website owner if you have any questions or complaints.
Automatic Renewal. Any recurring payments you make to a website owner (like a website subscription) are automatically renewed. Unless you or the website owner cancels your website subscription before the end of the applicable renewal period, it will automatically renew. Your recurring payments are renewed for the same time interval as your original subscription period. For example, if you select an annually renewing website subscription, you’ll be automatically charged by the website owner once each year. You can view the renewal dates for your website subscriptions on your Other Site Payments page.
Canceling Automatic Renewal of Website Subscriptions. You can manage and cancel your website subscriptions as described here on the Payments page. Click on the payment you want to cancel and follow the instructions. Repeat this process for each website subscription you wish to cancel.
Refunds. There are no refunds. All sales are final. If you have a complaint, you can contact us.
We love hearing from you and are always looking to improve our Services. When you share comments, ideas, or feedback with us, you agree that we’re free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you.

- Specific Service Terms
a. Ebonynsweet.com Websites and Accounts
Ebonynsweet.com enables you to create beautiful websites and blogs, and we would love for you to use it. A Ebonynsweet.com account also allows you to sign into some of our other Services.
License. By uploading or sharing content, you grant us a worldwide, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, and non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, distribute, adapt, publicly display, and publish the content solely to provide and improve our products and services. This license also allows us to make any publicly-posted Content available to select third parties so that these third parties can analyze and distribute (but not publicly display) the content through their services. You also give other Ebonynsweet.com users permission to share your content on other Ebonynsweet.com websites and add their content to it (aka to “reblog” your content), so long as they use only a portion of your post and they give you credit as the original author by linking back to your website, which the reblogging function on Ebonynsweet.com does automatically.
Removing Content. If you delete content, you acknowledge that cached versions of the content or references to the content may not be immediately unavailable.
Prohibited Uses. Your content and conduct must not violate the Ebonynsweet.com User Guidelines.
Your responsibilities. You’re solely responsible for your eCommerce activities, including managing subscriptions for your website, your store, and all applicable taxes and fees. You must also comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and comply with any applicable laws (such as those relating to automatic renewal).
Fees and Negative Balances. In some cases, you pay us fees relating to the Ecommerce Services you use. For example, the fee for the Payments feature is a percentage (which depends on your plan) of the revenue your website generates through the Payment feature. When you use the feature, you authorize Stripe to direct payment of that percentage to us. As another example, if you use WooCommerce Payments, there are transaction fees and dispute fees. Please note that we have no obligation to reimburse or refund these revenue-based fees when you issue refunds to your subscribers or customers.

Third-Party Services aren’t vetted, endorsed, or controlled by Ebonynsweet.

Your use is solely between you and the respective third party (“Third Party”) and is governed by the Third Party’s terms and policies.
If you have questions or concerns about how a Third-Party Service operates or need support. Contact the Third Party directly.
