### 26. Client Acknowledgment on Search Engines and Directories.

The Service Provider has no sway over the policies established by search engines or directories regarding the types of sites and/or content that they accept or may accept in the future. The client acknowledges that their website(s) may be excluded from any search engine or directory at any moment, solely at the discretion of the respective search engine or directory entity. The Service Provider will make efforts to resubmit any pages that have been excluded from the index; however, the client should be aware that the listing process can take anywhere from two to four months, or even longer, after submission to a search engine or directory. The client should also be aware that search engines and directories may temporarily stop accepting submissions. Additionally, listings may be dropped without any apparent or predictable reason, but will often reappear without the need for additional submissions. If a listing does not reappear, the Service Provider will make efforts to resubmit the website(s) in accordance with the current policies of the search engine or directory in question.

The service Provider shall not be held liable for any lack of results, delay or inability to list or maintain the Client’s website(s) in the search engines and directories. The Service Provider shall not be responsible for changes made to the Client’s website(s) by other parties that may affect the search engine or directory listings. The search engine and directory listings are beyond the control of the Service Provider and the Service Provider makes no guarantees of any kind, express or implied, as to the listing, position or any other aspect of the Client’s website(s) in any search engine or directory. The Client acknowledges and agrees that the ranking of their website(s) in the search engines and directories depends upon many factors beyond the control of the Service Provider, and that search engine and directory ranking is inherently volatile and subject to change.

### 27. Termination of Services.

The SEO Service provided by the Service Provider will be automatically renewed after 31 days unless otherwise terminated by the Client. The Service Provider will send an automatic renewal email to the Client before the end of the 31-day period, informing the Client of the upcoming renewal. If the Client wishes to terminate the SEO Service, they must do so before the automatic renewal date by sending written notice to the Service Provider. If the Client does not take any action before the automatic renewal date and does not make payment, the SEO Service will be terminated and services will stop. The termination of the SEO Service will only be effective upon receipt of written notice from the Client or upon failure to make payment.

### 28. Project Delivery & Flexibility.

The SEO Service provided by the Service Provider will be delivered within a performance-based 30-day period billed one month at a time, during which the Client will be able to assess the results. The Service Provider will be flexible and adaptable in delivering the SEO Service, ensuring that the outcome meets both the expectations and requirements of the Package.
