If you think that some of the content related to Backlink Gorilla is inappropriate, infringes these Terms, applicable laws, or your right to privacy, please contact us immediately by email using the website contact page. If any content or User is reported as inappropriate, we will immediately delete such content from Backlink Gorilla and investigate the conduct of the reported User.
By accessing and using the Services, you acknowledge and agree to the terms of the Services outlined in this section 5.
The Services shall be delivered to the User remotely through the Internet, subject to the deadlines agreed to by the User and the Company.
The User shall take full responsibility and the Company shall have no liability if the provision of the Services is interrupted or suspended due to User’s failure to provide the requested information, comply with Company’s requests and any provision of these Terms.
To ensure the optimal provision of the Services, the User agrees to follow the information, advice, requirements, and recommendations provided by the Company.
To facilitate the rendering of the Services, the User should submit to the Company materials related to the Services, including, but not limited to, the URLs of User’s websites, keywords and optional promotional materials (together the “Content”). The User agrees not to submit any Content that the User is not authorized to use, or the Content that infringes any applicable laws, international treaties, or regulations.
Backlink Gorilla reserves the right to decline or cancel any Content that is not owned or controlled by the User. Backlink Gorilla reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse to upload, modify, delete, postpone, return, or remove any Content that violates these Terms, Company’s standards, or any applicable laws.
By submitting the Content to the Company, the User grants the Company unrestricted, sub-licensable, royalty-free, perpetual, and irrevocable rights to use, distribute, advertise, adapt, remix, modify, publicly display, publicly perform, excerpt, prepare derivative works from, and reproduce the Content for the purposes of providing the Services.
Backlink Gorilla does not have full control over the distributed Content. Should the User request the Company to amend, remove, erase, or cancel any of the Content to be distributed by the Company, the User understands and agrees that some of the Content is distributed on third-party platforms and websites (collectively, the “Third-Party platforms”) and therefore cannot be amended, removed, erased, or canceled due to the circumstances outside the Company’s reasonable control. Backlink Gorilla shall bear no responsibility for the Content that cannot be amended, removed, erased, or canceled on the Third-Party Platforms.
To facilitate the provision of the Services, the User may provide us with keywords predetermined and selected by the User (“Your Keywords”). We shall not be responsible or liable in any manner for the determination of Your Keywords, including research, selection, rankings, or underperformance of Your Keywords.
By providing Your Keywords, you agree to be solely responsible for Your Keywords, including, without limitation, ensuring that (i) Your Keywords are accurate and meet reasonable industry standards, (ii) Your Keywords do not infringe on intellectual property rights of third parties, and (iii) Your Keywords do not infringe any applicable laws.
We exclude all responsibility and liability for Your Keywords.
When providing the Services, we use leased and permanent backlinks. The backlinks are placed on third-party platforms and therefore the Company shall bear no responsibility for the backlinks that are prematurely removed by the Third-Party Platforms.
Although the Company puts reasonable efforts to select the Third-Party Platforms that are relevant to the respective User, the Company does not guarantee the relevance, reliability, and fit for purpose of the selected Third-Party Platforms.
The accuracy of any information provided by the Company in relation to the Services, including, without limitation, reports on Google search results and keyword position reports, (collectively, the “Reports”) can be affected by various factors, such as the time, location, and device used. Although the Company devotes reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy of the Reports, the User acknowledges and agrees that the Reports may differ from the information available directly to the User.
For the purpose of providing the Services, our proprietary software leases and buys backlinks from a number of Third-Party Platforms (for example: Sape.ru, Fiverr.com) automatically, both directly and by contracting with third-party backlink providers.
Although our algorithms are created to avoid any potentially harmful and/or illegal websites and the Company’s staff puts reasonable efforts to filter out such websites regularly, it is potentially possible that some of the Third-Party Platforms are inappropriate for leasing or buying backlinks. Backlink Gorilla is not responsible for any possible technical, ranking, or legal issues caused by leasing/buying of such backlinks.
If you ever find any inappropriate Third-Party Platforms or other source websites, please contact our support team to filter out such Third-Party Platforms and websites in your Account or cease their use for the provision of the Services.
Fees & Payments
The Fees. The Services are subject to the applicable service fees (the “Fees”) payable by the User. The schedule of the Fees is available on the Website or communicated to the User personally. The Fees are charged automatically for the actual use of the Services and deducted from User’s balance prepaid in advance, unless canceled earlier by the User. By concluding a service contract with us, the User agrees to pay the Fees in accordance with these Terms, the terms and conditions of the respective Fees, and other terms and conditions in force at the moment the service contract is concluded. The Fees are indicated in US Dollars (USD) and remain valid for as long as (i) they are indicated on the Website, (ii) as communicated by us, or (iii) the User’s service contract lasts. The Fees are subject to change without prior notice. Any changes to the Fees will be made available to the User and, if necessary, we will request the User to provide consent to the amendments of the Fees.
Payments. All payments related to Backlink Gorilla are processed by our third-party payment processor, Stripe (the “Payment Processors”). The Payment Processors may collect some personal data from the User, such as User’s name, credit card number, and billing address, which will allow it to make payments requested by the User. The Payment Processors handle all steps in the payment process through its systems, including data collection and data processing. The User is responsible for ensuring that all payment information is correct and the funds necessary for paying the Fees are available. The User agrees not to hold us liable for payments that do not reach us because the User has quoted incorrect payment information or the Payment Processors refused the payment for any other reason.
Concluding a service contract. The User that would like to conclude a service contract with us needs to: (i) visit the Website; (ii) register the Account by submitting the requested personal data; (iii) choose the Services; (iv) provide the required payment information; and (v) make the upfront payment. The User will be able to identify and correct any input errors prior to clicking on the “Pay” button. After the User clicks on the button “Pay” and the payment is completed, we will send a confirmatory email informing the User about the order. By clicking on the button “Pay” and receiving a confirmatory email, the User concludes a service contract in English with us on the basis of these Terms. The details of the specific service contract will not be filed by us and, therefore, the specific contract will not be available to the User. However, if the User does require any information regarding the order, the User can consult the Account or contact us directly.
Cancellation. The User is entitled to cancel then Services and the Fees related thereto at any time though the Account or by contacting us directly. No Fees paid for the Services provided to the User shall be refunded. After the cancellation of the Services becomes effective, no further Fees shall be charged to the User and the provision of the Services shall cease.
Refunds. The Fees are charged for the Services actually used by the User. Therefore, we do not provide refunds for the Fees paid and the Services provided to the User. In case User’s account received any bonus credits, such credits are not subject to refund, so the bonus credits are deducted before calculating the final refund. Any upfront payments that have not been charged by the Company shall be refunded to the User upon termination of the Account.
If the User is not satisfied with Backlink Gorilla and there is a reason to believe that the quality of the Services is impaired due to our fault, we may, after carefully assessing the issue and in our sole discretion, issue partial or full refunds to the User. The situations in which we may consider issuing refunds include: (i) if the Services are impaired due to technical issues that cannot be solved in a reasonably timely manner; (ii) we materially breach these Terms; or (iii) we fail to provide the Services as agreed to with the User. In order to terminate the service contract and receive a refund, the User must contact us and explain User’s concern in detail. If the User qualifies for a refund, we will issue the refund by using the same payment method that the User used to make the payment.
Marketing communication. We may send you occasional newsletters. You may opt out of the newsletters at any time by using the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email. We will send you marketing-related communication only if (i) you provide us with your opt-in consent to receive such communication or (ii) we decide to send you marketing messages about our new services that are closely related to the Services already used by you.
Informational notices. After you register the Account, you may receive from us important technical notices about your Account and Backlink Gorilla (the “Notifications”), including low balance notifications, technical or administrative emails, information about your Account, privacy and security, and other important matters, because they are essential for the success of the Services.
