Information about Ucraft

Users who want to become Affiliates are requested to carefully read and accept the terms and conditions of the affiliation program available at the bottom of the affiliate sign up form on Ucraft. In case of discrepancies or inconsistencies between the Agreement and the affiliation program’s terms and conditions, the latter terms shall take precedence for the Affiliates.
We have prepared this Refund Policy to explain when you can request a refund with respect to products and services acquired from Ucraft or through us from our partners and/or affiliates (collectively “Services”).
General terms apply to all refund eligible Services. In addition, there may be special term(s) that apply to a specific product and/or service and those are outlined below.

- No refund will be made if your Service(s) are suspended or terminated for cause.
- If purchased Service(s) include free domain name registration as part of a promotion or sale of the Service(s), and you cancel the purchased Service(s), the standard price for the domain name will be deducted from the refund amount. If the refund amount is less than the standard price for the domain, you must either elect to pay the difference or forfeit the domain, in which case, ownership of the domain will revert back to Ucraft.

Domain Name Refunds
- Unless this Refund Policy specifically provides for a refund, all fees for domain name registrations and related domain name Service(s) are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term.
- New domain name registrations may be refundable, at the sole discretion of Ucraft, if you, the registrant, cancel the domain name registration for a valid reason and the cancellation is processed within 3 days (72 hours) after registration. *Please note that, in some cases, cancellation and refund are not available for new domain registrations due to restrictions imposed by the applicable registry or registry operating company.

Terms and conditions of sale
Ucraft provides for additional services and subscriptions available upon payment of a fee.
The fees, duration and conditions for the accounts and paid services are highlighted in the relevant section of Ucraft.
In the event that Ucraft offers a trial period, the User will be able to experience, free of charge and for a limited period of time, some of the paid features offered by Ucraft. Details of the trial terms will be provided as part of the process of starting a subscription or using the Service.
Payments start from the date when Users choose a paid subscription or modify another existing payment plan. The subscription must be renewed at each billing cycle to maintain the benefits provided by the paid services.
Recurring subscriptions are renewed automatically through the payment method that the User chose at the time of purchase. The renewed subscription will last for an equal period of time as the original service period. Users may cancel automatic renewal at any time by changing their preferences for the payment method used. If the User cancels an automatic renewal, then Ucraft may be forced to cancel their subscription when it runs out.
Any order placed is an offer to purchase the Service. Orders are subject to availability and are accepted at the discretion of the Owner.
Users must select the desired Service, choosing the type and duration that best suit them, and check-out only after having carefully verified the information contained in the order summary form of the order. The order is placed on confirmation of the order and is subject to payment of the amount charged in the order summary.
Receipt of Order Processing does not constitute acceptance of the order. The contract shall be concluded at the time of the arrival of the Order Confirmation by the Owner to the email address provided by the User. The Owner reserves the right not to confirm an order, should one or more of the Services purchased be unavailable. In this case, the Owner will notify the User about the unavailability of the Services purchased within 5 working days from order – to the email address associated with the purchase – and will provide for a refund of any amounts paid by the User.
To place an order, Users must register on the site providing the requested data. The indicated prices include taxes, fees and charges of the law applicable. The Owner reserves the right to offer discounts, free trials, Coupons and various promotions throughout the year. For more details on current promotions, the User is asked to contact the Owner via the contact information contained herein.
The User acknowledges and agrees that the website created via the tools provided by Ucraft will be deleted by the Owner from its database, without any possibility to restore it in the future, within 30 days running from:
- the expiration of the trial period, if the Service is not eventually purchased by the User and/or
- the expiration of the subscription, if the the latter is not renewed.
Right of withdrawal for European Users
According to the applicable European consumer protection law, in case of purchase of services the European User has the right to terminate the Agreement, within 14 days days from the date the Agreement is entered into, without giving any explanation. For the purpose of exercising the right of withdrawal, the User is obliged to inform the Owner, without any formality, of the decision to withdraw by sending an unequivocal statement to the address set out in this document. For the purpose of this communication, User can use the withdrawal form available at the bottom of the Agreement. Any reimbursable amount will be returned by the Owner without undue delay, and in any event within 14 days of the notification of withdrawal by the User, using the same means of payment used by the User for the initial transaction, unless the User has expressly otherwise agreed.
Limitations to the right of withdrawal
Notwithstanding the above, the User acknowledges and accepts that the right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts for the supply of services after the full performance of the service by a professional if the performance initially began with the express consent of the User and their agreement to lose the right to withdraw.
Therefore, if the European User has made a purchase on Ucraft and the Service provided by the Owner is immediately provided so that User has immediate access to the use of the relevant Service, the withdrawal right shall be no longer actionable.
The User also acknowledges and agrees that the withdrawal shall not apply to the supply of digital content through a non-material medium once the execution of the agreement has begun with the express consent of the User and their acknowledgement of the loss of the right to withdrawal.
This means that whenever a European User purchases digital items from within Ucraft, the withdrawal right shall be no longer actionable.

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), you can request that SoftConstruct LLC. remove material that infringes a copyright.

(If you have any question on these requirements that are not answered by this section of the Agreement, please see Section 512(c)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act).
Your “takedown notice” must include:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;

- A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
You must send this takedown notice in physical form to Ucraft as follows:
14724 Ventura Boulevard 806
91403 - Sherman Oaks
You can also send a copy by email to [email protected] but you must send the physical version described above to the physical mail address specified.
If you knowingly misrepresent in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you will be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer as the result of our relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.
Providing the Service
From time to time the Owner may change certain aspects of the Service, such as adding or deleting certain features. The Owner may also decide to suspend or terminate the Services altogether. If the Services are terminated, the Owner will work with you to enable you to withdraw your information in accordance with applicable law.
The Services might not be available at times you expect it, whether because of software or network problems or events that are known as “Force Majeure” such as acts of God, labor actions and other disruptions beyond the reasonable control of the Owner. The Services might not be available also because the Services are undergoing maintenance.

The Owner reserves the right to amend or otherwise modify this Agreement at any time, informing you by publishing a notice through Ucraft or otherwise communicating with you.

Previous versions, which are archived by the Owner, will govern the relationship prior to your acceptance. You can email the Owner for a copy of any previous version. Your continued use of the Services after such changes will signify your agreement with and acceptance of this Agreement with its revised terms. If you do not wish to be bound by the changes, then your only recourse is to discontinue the use of the Services.

If at the date of termination of the Agreement, there are any outstanding fees that you owe us, you will receive one final invoice via email, at the email address that you provided upon registration. Once that invoice has been paid in full, you will not be charged again and we shall consider our relationship terminated.
If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions, which shall remain in full force and effect.
