Terms And Conditions
Last modified on April 12, 2020
Unless otherwise specifically agreed in a writing signed by the president of AgentZip.com, Inc. (“AgentZip”), these terms and conditions create a contract (the “Agreement”) between you and AgentZip. This website (the “Site”) is owned by AgentZip and this page explains the terms by which you may use the Site. Please read the Agreement carefully. By clicking “Agree,” you thereby confirm your understanding and acceptance of this Agreement.
A. Introduction to the Services
This Agreement governs your use of AgentZip’ services and the use of this Site (collectively the “Services”). The Services include: (1) online advertising services; (2) limited non-exclusive license of AgentZip’ proprietary customer relationship management software (the “Proprietary Software”) and certain copyrighted materials; (3) training in the Proprietary Software; and (4) certain support services provided by AgentZip at its sole discretion regarding the Proprietary Software. Pro and Surge Clients may be entitled to additional services.
To use the Services, you need compatible hardware, software (latest version recommended and sometimes required) and Internet access (fees may apply).
In the event that you subscribe to AgentZip ad placing services, for best results, AgentZip recommends a monthly minimum ad spend of between $250.00 and $400.00. AgentZip makes no promise or guarantee of lead volume, quality, or lead conversion rates. AgentZip runs ad(s) for clients by using ad budget funds to attract leads for a full month. Leads that are generated are exclusive to the client. Ads are designed to run continually for the length of the contract.
B. Using the Services
i. Payment, Taxes, and Refunds
You understand that prior to AgentZip providing the Services you shall be required to pay an onboarding fee and enter into a subscription plan. If applicable, you will also be responsible for funding an advertising budget.
There are various subscription plans (collectively the “Subscription Plan”). Your specific subscription plan is listed on your invoice. By starting your Subscription Plan, you authorize us to charge fees per the terms of your Subscription Plan, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Services. You will be automatically charged each month, or, in the case of a prepaid plan, per the terms of such plan, for your ongoing use of the Services. The onboarding fee and all the Subscription Plans fees are nonrefundable.
The cost of each Subscription Plan is set forth in your Agreement. Once you select a Subscription Plan, the cost of that Subscription Plan is guaranteed for the duration of your initial Subscription Plan only and does not extend to any renewals. Except as provided herein, Subscription Plan prices may change at any time with or without notice.
For details about how your payment is charged, please visit our Billing Policy available at https://AgentZip.com/billing-policies/. In the event that this Agreement and the Billing Policy conflicts, this Agreement controls. You are responsible for paying any applicable taxes.
If you intend to dispute any charge related to any of the Services you must contact AgentZip in writing at [email protected] or submit a ticket from your AgentZip account within thirty days after the disputed charge is first incurred. You waive any disputes not reported within thirty days of the disputed charge. At AgentZip’ sole discretion, you may be entitled to a pro-rated partial refund of any unused portion of your advertising budget. If technical problems caused by AgentZip, as determined in AgentZip’ sole reasonable discretion, prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of the Services, your exclusive and sole remedy is either replacement of the Services or refund of the last service charge paid.
You may be billed fees, charges and assessments related to late or non-payments if for any reason (a) AgentZip does not receive payment for the Services by the payment due date, or (b) you pay less than the full amount due for the Services.
YOU WILL BE ASSESSED A LATE FEE OF 10% PER MONTH (OR THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW IF SUCH AMOUNT IS LESS THAN 10% PER MONTH) FOR ANY PAYMENT AMOUNT THAT HAS NOT BEEN PAID IN FULL AFTER TEN (10) DAYS FROM THE DUE DATE.
AgentZip does not anticipate that you will fail to pay for the Services on a timely basis, and we do not extend credit to our customers. Any fees, charges, and assessments occasioned by your late payment or nonpayment will be considered liquidated damages intended to be a reasonable advance estimate of our costs resulting from late payments and non-payments. These costs will be difficult to calculate or to predict when we set such fees, charges and assessments, because we cannot know in advance: (a) whether you will pay for the Services on a timely basis, if ever; (b) if you do pay late, when you will actually pay; and (c) what costs we will incur because of your late payment or nonpayment.
In the event that AgentZip receives a chargeback from a third-party payment provider on your behalf, AgentZip may assess you with a fifty dollar ($50.00) processing fee for each individual chargeback.
If we use a collection agency or attorney to collect money owed to us by you, you agree to pay the reasonable costs and fees associated with such a collection. These include, but are not limited to any collection agency’s fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.
If you fail to pay the full amount due for any or all of the Services, AgentZip may, at its sole discretion in accordance with and subject to any applicable law, suspend any or all of the Services.
ii. Monthly Advertising Budget
You understand and agree that AgentZip uses your advertising budget, fewer AgentZip’ service fee, to contract with certain third party providers to place internet advertising (the “Ad Budget”) on your behalf. Your Ad Budget is paid in advance and will be charged monthly at the commencement of your billing cycle. You may amend or cancel your Ad Budget at any time by notifying AgentZip in writing at [email protected] (the “Ad Budget Notice”). The amendment or cancellation will be effective in the billing cycle immediately after you provide the foregoing written Ad Budget Notice to AgentZip. You understand that if your Ad Budget drops below the minimum ($200 per month for Canadian clients and $300 for US clients in California, California, Florida and New York and $250 for all other US clients), you may be subject to certain penalties, including but not limited to, loss of any zip code and/or area exclusivity for any online advertising.
iii. Ongoing Subscription
Unless you cancel your Subscription Plan in writing at [email protected] or submit a ticket from your AgentZip account, not more than thirty days and not less than ten days prior to your current Subscription Plan’s expiration date, your Subscription Plan will automatically be renewed as a month to month Subscription Plan.
iv. AgentZip Account
Using the Services requires a AgentZip account (the “Account”). The Account is the account you use across AgentZip’ ecosystem.

H. Governing Law; Venue
This Agreement and the relationship between you and AgentZip shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflicts of law provisions. You and AgentZip agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the County of San Diego, CA to resolve any disputes or claims arising from this Agreement.
I. Dispute Resolution
Should any dispute arise under this Agreement or otherwise related to the Services, you must first participate in at least four hours of non-binding mediation before a professional recognized by the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals as a Member of the Academy and located in Maricopa County, California (“ADR Professional”). The list of ADR Professionals is currently available at http://www.nadn.org/California-arbitrators. If the parties cannot agree on an ADR Professional, the Professional with the lowest hourly rate shall be the mediator. The parties shall share equally in the costs of the mediation. Mediation shall involve no formal court procedures, discovery, or rules of evidence and the mediator does not have the power to render a binding decision or force an agreement on the parties.
Should the dispute remain outstanding after mediation, prior to initiating litigation you must submit to mandatory non-binding arbitration before an ADR Professional other than the person who acted as mediator. If the parties cannot agree on an ADR Professional, each party shall select one ADR Professional, and those two Professionals shall choose a different ADR Professional (other than the one who served as a mediator) and that person shall be the arbitrator. The arbitrator may allow limited discovery and must conduct an evidentiary hearing—subject to the California Rules of Evidence—of no more than eight hours in duration prior to rendering a written decision. The decision shall not be binding on the parties (and may not be entered as a judgment or cited as evidence or precedent) unless agreed to by the parties in writing but should be interpreted by the parties as a prediction of the result of formal litigation. Additionally, the prevailing party shall be reimbursed by the non-prevailing party its fees and costs related to the arbitration.
Standards and procedures for the mediation and arbitration shall be decided by the relevant ADR Professional consistent with this provision.
Absolutely no lawsuits may be initiated until after both of the foregoing mediation and arbitration protocols are completed. Any litigation commenced prior to completing both mediation and arbitration shall be subject to a stay pending completion of both.
J. Waiver of Class Action
There shall be no right or authority for any claims to be arbitrated or litigated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, other users of the Site or the Services, or other persons similarly situated. AgentZip would not be willing to provide the Services to you absent this waiver. You acknowledge and agree that you are under no obligation to use this Site or the Services if you are not willing to waive class action rights, and you expressly agree to this waiver.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and AgentZip as a result of this agreement or your use of the Services or the Site. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid, all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import. Except as otherwise set forth herein, this Agreement constitutes the entire and only agreements between you and AgentZip with respect to the Services and the Site and supersedes all other communications and agreements with respect to the subject matter thereof.
