A small sampling of the feedback we recive:

Just wanna say you guys have amazing customer service. I have never dealt with a company that was so responsive and communicative and never condescending on tech issues.

- Jen

I wanted to let you know that your product is bar none, the best available as is your staff. I could literally file a support ticket and (not including the automated response) would often times have a response in less than two minutes.

How much does a PhotoFolio website cost?

There are three-pricing options for your PhotoFolio subscription.

1. $1,000 one time setup + $17/month ( includes hosting, maintenance, upgrades and support)

2. $1,000 set-up in 4 monthly installments of $250 + $17/month (includes hosting, maintenance, upgrades and support)

3. $34/Month, no setup fee (includes hosting, maintenance, upgrades and support) All these options are equal at 5 years. Paying the $1,000 up front is the best option for customers that know they are going to have a PhotoFolio website for 5 or more years as the monthly cost of ownership is half-price from year 5 and beyond.

All three of the options provide you complete access to the PhotoFolio DesignX platform, which is the most awarded website software in the world.

*Yes, we know you can buy a website for $9 a month. This is not a $9 website. We have features that can only be found here and we are invested in your success, not the success of investors (that's why they cost $9). Let us prove it to you.

**Once you subscribe we guarantee that your monthly rate will not increase during your subscription to a PhotoFolio. In addition, we won't ask you to pay more for future upgrades or new versions. We make frequent updates and add new features regularly and those all flow your way at no cost. Once you are in the PhotoFolio family the benefits keep on coming.

Are there any long-term contracts or cancellation fees?

No. The hosting of your site is month-to-month service. You can cancel at any time. In order to receive a refund of the onetime fee cancel within 31 days of purchase.

Is there a discount for 2nd and 3rd sites?

Yes. We offer subsequent (2nd, 3rd, 4th…) site purchases at $500 plus $17/month each. After you purchase your first site with us you can take advantage of this whenever you like. Simply submit a support ticket with your request and they will send you a payment link.

How do I subscribe?

First step is to create a FREE 14-day demo. Once you signup we will email you information on how to login and get started designing your site. We will also include a unique url link to subscribe to your website. Once you signup for the demo, you can subscribe anytime (You don't need to wait for the 14 day trial to end) using the link. Simply select the subscription you would like to purchase. We will then send you an email with instructions on how to make your new website live.

Do you have website templates?

Yes, we have just released a brand new feature called “Designs” which is our version of templates, but unlike traditional templates, which are inherently restrictive, these designs can be fully customized without limitation. The “designs” provide instant access to pre-constructed sites that mirror much of the layout and functionality of some of our more popular websites. Currently, there are 6 pre-built designs including layouts with a top, bottom and left/right menus.

To get an idea of the variety of websites created using our DesignX platform, we invite you to take a look at “Our Clients” section of the website. These sites were all created using our patent pending software.

What is the best way to use the FREE 14-day trial?

The trial is intended to give you an opportunity to test-drive the software and experience the power of the DesignX platform. It is recommended that trial users watch the Design X manual (manual.photofolio.io) to get a feel for how best to start using their demo site. Your trial gives you full access to our program and any work you do to the demo site will be saved and moved to your active account if you subscribe at the end of the trial. We recommend that you use some of your own images into the trial so you can see the ease of importing and also see how good your images look when using the PhotoFolio program.

Do you have print sales and or licensing?

You have 3 options for print sales and licensing:

1. We have an inquiry button that can be added to all images and video which allows people to contact you directly about licensing and print sales (bespoke sales).

2. We have integrated FotoMoto into the site which allows you to setup a store and makes sales directly on the website.

3. You can easily link off our APF site to many of the e-commerce companies in the world and even embed a search box on a text page for convenience.

I need a domain name do you provide those?

We recommend namesecure.com, mydomain.com and networksolutions.com for purchasing domain names (Note: you can use any service you like for this). We do not provide domain registration, but do provide hosting and connection to email, so make sure you only register a domain name with them.

Can I make changes to the site after it is live?

Yes, in fact the site is always live we just keep it on a temporary url that cannot be searched until you are ready to make it live on your own url. You can change anything you want at any time.

Are the sites SEO-friendly?

They are very friendly, in fact. Our team has expertise in optimizing websites for search engines. Here are just a few features that ensure your site will be visible and well-ranked:

1. Easily control your site's browser title, description and meta information.

2. We use best-practices for embedding content, ensuring search engines crawl your pages.

3. Every site is built in HTML with search engine-friendly URLs and properly tagged images.

4. We can optionally install a WordPress blog, which search engines love..

5. All sites can easily be connected to social media (twitter, facebook, linkedin, instagram, etc.) which is powerful for SEO

Can I add my own font to my site?

Of course you can, typography is very important to us and our clients. You will need to provide the font in in .ttf (or .otf) and .woff formats for embedding. We have also hand selected 36 of the best google fonts that are pre-installed with all sites.

How Often Do You Add New Features And Are There Any Fees To Upgrade?

We provide free upgrades to your site for life, for free. In fact, we are the first in the industry to create an update button in the admin of your site, so new features can be added by you anytime they are available. We try to release new stuff every 1 – 3 months.

Do you provide email?

We can connect your website to Gmail for business (Google Apps) or you can use email from a domain registrar like network solutions who generally offer it cheaper than google apps.

We do not directly provide email because email is mission critical for businesses and doing it right is actually quite difficult. I would be very hesitant to use email from a company that doesn't specialize in it, because there's a huge difference between sending email and delivering email. Deliverability means your email lands in the inbox. You'd be surprised at how many emails don't make it to their destination if not handled correctly. Don't make this mistake with your business. Work with a company like Google that are experts in email deliverability.

Can I have a blog on a PhotoFolio website?

As a convenience, we are happy to integrate your existing blog, from providers such as WordPress or Tumblr, onto your PhotoFolio website. The blog will be installed on the domain but not inside the site. You have to add your own theme and plugins and be responsible for managing the blog externally.

Do you have password protected galleries?

Yes, you can create unlimited password protected galleries that can only be accessed by viewers that have been provided with a password.

Do you backup the websites?

Absolutely, and we keep a copy of all the sites in a secure location on tape (double redundant). We perform backups every single night.

About

Background

PhotoFolio was founded in 2008 by Rob Haggart who had spent the previous 8 years as the Director of Photography for Men's Journal and Outside Magazine. When hiring photographers to shoot for those magazines he looked at thousands of websites and over the years developed a list of user friendly features that would become the foundation of PhotoFolio.

Experience

Several of the top commercial and editorial photographers in the industry became our very first customers and have helped guide PhotoFolio to develop features that can only be found here. As we've grown from a handful to thousands of professional photographers using our software we've listened to their needs the entire way.

Philosophy

We come from the client perspective and our goal is to build sites that they find enjoyable to use and easy to operate. Along the way we've incorporated features photographers needed to make a strong impression. Our software has been perfected over the years by listening to both the user and the owner of the website.

Vision

Websites should be easy to operate and feature rich without fuss. We started by inventing the only customizable template in the industry and we went on to quickly pioneer new features for our users first. Our high profile customers forced us to become relentless with the details and polish. Their clients wanted simplicity and ease of use. This is our lifelong pursuit. We stay at the cutting edge with constant feature releases, we dig into the details and polish, then simplify so your clients keep coming back.

Terms of Service Agreement

1. Introduction

Thank you for visiting our Site. Please read these Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy as you must agree to both as a condition of using our Service.

2. Definitions

Throughout this Agreement, we may use certain words or phrases, and it is important that you understand the meaning of them. The list is not all-encompassing and no definition should be considered binding to the point that it renders this Agreement nonsensical:

“Agreement” refers to these Terms of Service;

“PhotoFolio” refers to our company, known as “APhotoFolio.com Inc.”; our Site; our Service; or a combination of all or some of the preceding definitions, depending on the context in which the word is used;

“Service” refers to the services that we provide, including our Site;

“Site” refers to our website, www.photofolio.io;

“User” refers to anyone who uses our Service, including general visitors to our Site;

“You” refers to you, the person who is entering into this Agreement with PhotoFolio.

3. Description of Service

PhotoFolio sells online software that can be used to build a website. It is a template that can be customized. Although our Service is intended chiefly for photographers, anyone can use it.

4. Eligibility

In order to use our Service, you must meet a number of conditions, including but not limited to:

You must not be in violation of any embargoes, export controls, or other laws of the United States or other countries having jurisdiction over this Agreement, PhotoFolio, and yourself. For example, if the Office of Foreign Assets Control prohibits conducting financial transactions with nationals, residents, or banks of your country, you must not use our Service.

You must be the minimum age required to enter into a contract in the area in which you reside, and, in any event, must not be less than 18 years of age.

You must provide us with personal information and other information that we deem necessary to provide you with our Service.

5. Nature of Service

PhotoFolio is provided on an as-is, where-is basis. You agree that you are solely responsible for determining whether the use of PhotoFolio is right for you, and to hold PhotoFolio harmless for any loss which may arise from or relate to your use of our Service.

6. Rules of Use

You must not:

Violate the laws of the United States, its states, or any foreign political entity having jurisdiction over this Agreement, whether or not the foreign political entity is a country or a subdivision (such as a state or province) or municipality (such as a city, town, county, or region) of a foreign country.

Post or send anything violent, threatening, pornographic, racist, hateful, or otherwise objectionable according to the opinion of PhotoFolio or its delegates.

Infringe on anyone's intellectual property rights, defame anyone, impersonate anyone, or otherwise violate the rights of a third party.

Hack, crack, phish, SQL inject, or otherwise compromise the security or integrity of the PhotoFolio Site, Service, or its Users' computers.

Do anything else which could bring PhotoFolio into disrepute or violate the rights of any person.

7. Payment and Refund Policy

Payment is accepted by means of credit card. Unless otherwise stated, all prices are denominated in United States dollars. Discounts are available for subsequent purchases made by the same User.

A refund is available for our setup and hosting fee if requested from us within 31 days of your purchase.

Additional terms surrounding payments, pricing, refunds, and discounts may be published on our Site or communicated directly to you and are hereby incorporated into this Agreement by reference.

8. Our Copyright

PhotoFolio's copyright is important because it protects our content from being diminished in its uniqueness by third parties. You agree not to copy, distribute, display, disseminate, or otherwise reproduce any of the information on the Site, including User profiles submitted by third parties to PhotoFolio, without receiving our prior written permission.

9. Your Copyright

PhotoFolio must be assured that it has the right to use the content that is posted to its Service by its Users. Such content may include, but is not limited to, photographs, videos, text, audio, and other materials. Whenever submitting content to our Service, you agree that you are granting us a license to publish your content to the extent that is necessary to provide you with our Service—you may revoke this license by providing us with written notice and we will remove your content to the best of our ability within a reasonable period of time. You warrant to us that you have the right to grant us this right over the content, and that you will indemnify us for any loss resulting from a breach of this warranty and defend us against claims regarding the same.

10. Trademarks

“PhotoFolio” is a trademark used by us, APhotoFolio.com Inc., to uniquely identify our Site, Service, and business. You agree not to use this phrase anywhere without our prior written consent. Additionally, you agree not to use our trade dress, or copy the look and feel of our Service or its design, without our prior written consent. You agree that this paragraph goes beyond the governing law on intellectual property law, and includes prohibitions on any competition that violates the provisions of this paragraph, including starting your own competing business.

11. Revocation of Consent

We may revoke our consent for your use of our intellectual property, or any other permission granted to you under this Agreement, at any time. You agree that if we so request, you must take immediate action to remove any usage of our intellectual property that you may have engaged in, even if it would cause a loss to you.

12. Copyright & Trademark Infringement

We take copyright infringement very seriously, and we have registered a Copyright Agent with the United States Copyright Office, which limits our liability under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If you believe that your copyright has been infringed, please send us a message which contains:

 

Your name.

The name of the party whose copyright has been infringed, if different from your name.

The name and description of the work that is being infringed.

The location on our website of the infringing copy.

A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted work described above is not authorized by the copyright owner (or by a third party who is legally entitled to do so on behalf of the copyright owner) and is not otherwise permitted by law.

A statement that you swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information contained in this notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or have an exclusive right in law to bring infringement proceedings with respect to its use.

You must sign this notification electronically and send it to our Copyright Agent at rob@photofolio.io.

 

Although U.S. law does not provide for a similar procedure for trademark infringement, we recommend that you send us similar information to that above in regards to any allegation of trademark infringement, and we will address it as soon as practicable.

13. Communications Decency Act

Similar to the DMCA provisions above, United States law—specifically Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act—creates a defense for us for the actions of third parties in regards to any defamatory content posted through our Service. Although we are not liable for defamatory words posted through our Service by our Users even if given notice, we do prohibit defamation under this Agreement and we may, if we believe the situation warrants it, take action against the offending User. Please notify us at rob@aphotofolio.com if any of our Users have posted anything that you believe is defamatory.

14. Representations & Warranties

WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OF OUR SERVICE OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE RELEASING US FROM ANY LIABILITY THAT WE MAY OTHERWISE HAVE TO YOU IN RELATION TO OR ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT OR OUR SERVICES, FOR REASONS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FAILURE OF OUR SERVICE, NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER TORT. TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLICABLE LAW RESTRICTS THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY, YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE ONLY LIABLE TO YOU FOR THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF DAMAGES THAT THE LAW RESTRICTS OUR LIABILITY TO, IF SUCH A MINIMUM EXISTS.

 

YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY THIRD PARTIES WHO MAY USE OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PEOPLE WHO COMMIT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT, DEFAMATION, TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE WITH ECONOMIC RELATIONS, OR ANY OTHER ACTIONABLE CONDUCT TOWARDS YOU.

 

YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF YOUR DATA, WHETHER PERMANENT OR TEMPORARY, AND WHETHER INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL.

 

YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY FAILURE OF THE GOODS OR SERVICES OF OUR COMPANY OR A THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING ANY FAILURES OR DISRUPTIONS, UNTIMELY DELIVERY, SCHEDULED OR UNSCHEDULED, INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL, ON OUR WEBSITE WHICH PREVENT ACCESS TO OUR WEBSITE TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY.

 

THE PROVISION OF OUR SERVICE TO YOU IS CONTINGENT ON YOUR AGREEMENT WITH THIS AND ALL OTHER SECTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. NOTHING IN THE PROVISIONS OF THIS “REPRESENTATIONS & WARRANTIES” SECTION SHALL BE CONSTRUED TO LIMIT THE GENERALITY OF THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THIS SECTION.

 

For Jurisdictions that do not allow us to limit our liability:

Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, if your jurisdiction has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the above then our liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, we do not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.

 

IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES A SPECIFIC STATEMENT REGARDING RELEASE THEN THE FOLLOWING APPLIES. FOR EXAMPLE, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST, AS A CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WAIVE THE APPLICABILITY OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” YOU HEREBY WAIVE THIS SECTION OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY SIMILAR PROVISION IN LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE THAT HAS THE SAME INTENT OR EFFECT AS THE AFOREMENTIONED RELEASE.

15. Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless for any claims by you or any third party which may arise from or relate to this Agreement or the provision of our service to you, including any damages caused by your use of our Service. You also agree that you have a duty to defend us against such claims and we may require you to pay for an attorney(s) of our choice in such cases. You agree that this indemnity extends to requiring you to pay for our reasonable attorneys' fees, court costs, and disbursements. In the event of a claim such as one described in this paragraph, we may elect to settle with the party/parties making the claim, and you shall be liable for the damages as though we had proceeded with a trial.

16. Choice of Law

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in the State of Colorado. The offer and acceptance of this contract are deemed to have occurred in the State of Colorado.

17. Forum of Dispute

You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be heard solely by a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Colorado. Specifically, where the subject matter of a dispute is eligible for it, you agree that any disputes shall be heard solely within the Small Claims Court of the State of Colorado (“Small Claims Court”).

If a dispute claims multiple claims and one or more of those claims would be eligible to be heard by the Small Claims Court, you agree not to bring the other claims against us and to instead proceed within the Small Claims Court.

If you would be entitled in a dispute to an amount exceeding the monetary jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court, you agree to waive your right to collect any damages in excess of the monetary jurisdiction and instead still bring your claim within the Small Claims Court.

You agree that if a dispute is eligible to be heard in Small Claims Court but you would be entitled to an additional or alternative remedy in a higher court, such as injunctive relief, you will waive your right to that remedy and still bring the dispute within the Small Claims Court.

If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with this section, you agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorneys' fees, court costs, and disbursements in doing so.

You agree that the unsuccessful party in any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be responsible for the reimbursement of the successful party's reasonable attorneys' fees, court costs, and disbursements.

18. Force Majeure

You agree that we are not responsible to you for anything that we may otherwise be responsible for, if it is the result of events beyond our control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, insurrection, riots, terrorism, crime, labor shortages (including lawful and unlawful strikes), embargoes, postal disruption, communication disruption, unavailability of payment processors, failure or shortage of infrastructure, shortage of materials, or any other event beyond our control.

19. Severability

In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.

If two or more provisions of this Agreement are deemed to conflict with each other's operation, PhotoFolio shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.

20. Non-Waiver

PhotoFolio reserves all rights afforded to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.

21. Termination & Cancellation

We may terminate your access to our Site and Service at our discretion without explanation, though we will strive to provide a timely explanation in most cases. Our liability for refunding you, if you have paid anything to us, will be limited to the amount you paid for goods or services which have not yet been and will not be delivered, except in cases where the termination or cancellation was due to your breach of this Agreement, in which case you agree that we are not required to provide any refund or other compensation whatsoever.

Under no circumstances, including termination or cancellation of our Service to you, will we be liable for any losses related to actions of other Users.

22. Assignment of Rights

You may not assign your rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party without our prior written consent. We may assign our rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party at our discretion.

23. Amendments

We may amend this Agreement from time to time. When we amend this Agreement, we will post the changes here accordingly. You must read this page each time you use our Service and your continued use of our Service shall constitute your acceptance of any such changes.

24. California Users and Residents

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1789.3, any questions about pricing, complaints, or inquiries about PhotoFolio must be addressed to our agent for notice and sent via certified mail to that agent. For our agent's most current contact information, please send a request to rob@photofolio.io.

Lastly, California users are also entitled to the following specific consumer rights notice: The Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may be contacted in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (916) 445-1254 or (800) 952-5210.
