Terms of Use

Please read these Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) carefully before using this Website.
This project agreement is between Shannon “Max” MacMillan, owner and principal developer of Blue Storm Creative, and any contractors or employees of Blue Storm Creative at the time of service (“Company”, “we”, or “us”). The term “you” refers to the customer of this website package.

We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions on the Website at any time without notice, and by placing your order for this website package you are agreeing to the T&C as they appear, whether or not you have read them. If you do not agree with these T&C, please do not place your order.


We will always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your goals; however, sometimes it is best to have a few simple things written down so we both know what is what, who should do what, and what happens if something goes wrong. In this agreement, you will not find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. We have no desire to trick you into signing an agreement you might later regret. We do want what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.

You are hiring Blue Storm Creative for website or app development or general business support as titled on your checkout page, for the amount that appears on your invoice and proposal.

What do both parties agree to?

As our customer, you have the power, and ability, to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project including text, images, and other information as needed, and when needed, and in the format we ask for. We will keep all passwords, ideas, etc. discussed and shared as confidential. You agree to review our work, provide feedback, and sign-off approval in a timely manner. Deadlines work two ways, so we both will be bound by any dates we set together.

We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need, and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way we will endeavor to meet all deadlines; however, we are not responsible for a missed launch date or deadline if you have been late in supplying information, required materials, or you have not approved or signed off our work in a timely manner. In addition, we will also maintain the confidentiality of any information you provide us.

Legal stuff

We are not able to guarantee the functions contained in any apps, web page templates or in a completed website once we hand over the site to you, and therefore you agree we will not be held liable to you, or any third party, for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate this web site and any other web pages, even if you have advised us of the possibilities of such damages.

If any provision of this agreement is determined to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.


We know that regulations change and we endeavor to stay on top of all legal requirements for data protection from the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) to state by state guidelines (e.x. California Consumer Privacy Act).

We also work hard to ensure accessibility for the websites, apps, and products we produce in compliance with guidelines. This may include the use of third party apps at the request of our clients. We make no representations or warranties about the compliance of these third party apps. It is the responsibility of our clients to ensure compliance.


You guarantee to us any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork you provide us for inclusion in the web site are either owned by you, or you have permission to use them.

Copyright is automatically assigned as follows:

You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided, unless someone else owns them.

We own the XHTML markup, CSS and other code and we license it to you for unlimited use on only this project. More simply, this means we use programming code on your website, and by leasing that to you, it enables us to use that same or similar programming code on other websites so we stay in business.

We love to show off our work and share what we have learned with other people, so we also reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of our portfolio, and to write about the project on web sites, in magazine articles and in books. If we propose a great strategy during our time together we reserve the right to talk about our Intellectual Property with other clients and in our social media.


We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business for you to make your payments in a prompt and timely manner. We are also sure you will want to stay friends, and you therefore agree to stick tight to the payment schedule you chose during checkout for this website package, also recorded on your payment receipt.

Since we rely upon a steady income flow from our clients, we must charge a late fee if your monthly payment is not received on time. If the payment is past due, we will send a reminder within 1-2 days. If a payment is more than 7 days past due a $50 late fee will be added to that month’s payment. If a payment is more than 14 days past due a $100 late fee will be added and the project will be placed on hold until that payment has been made.

If your website or project has launched and you default more than 30 days on your payment, we reserve the right to put a coming soon page on your website until the past due balance has been made current.


Although the language is simple, the intentions of this document are serious. Just like a parking ticket, you cannot transfer this contract to anyone else without our permission. This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it shall remain in place. If we run into any disputes regarding this project, we both agree to address those disputes in Lansing, New York. The terms “we,” “us” and “our” always refers to Blue Storm Creative and the terms “you” and “your” always refers to you.
