Your right to use the SEOHive services shall terminate upon your breach of any term of this Agreement.
13. Output files
While we do our best to minimize any mistakes, due to the nature of keyword research and limited context within specific business verticals, we can not guarantee all files delivered will be 100% error-free. Upon file delivery, you agree to review and proof all files for any errors or omissions and notify our team if any changes/corrections are needed. We will do our best to rush any edits to correct the mistakes. SEOHive is not responsible or liable for any losses or expenses incurred from errors or omissions.

By default, you agree to provide SEOHive with a non-exclusive right and license to publish your work in our portfolio, social media or other communication efforts. We will do our best to seek written permission before we post anything publicly. If you would like to revoke this right, please notify our team in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
16. Work and delivery output
While we can accept unlimited requests, projects, and Q&A, our output volume depends on many factors, namely depending on the total project volume and complexity. We will do our best to work with you to accommodate any priority items and your timelines but our suggestion is to not use our service for time-sensitive requests.
17. Pathway Deliverables
By subscribing to SEOHive and any of its pathways, you are agreeing to the following terms in regard to each respective pathway.
You will receive content to within +/- 10% of the agreed monthly allocation (currently 2,500 words) for each client. This will be delivered through the creation of a monthly planner within the first week of each subscription cycle. Any delay in the return of the planner and/or content proofs may delay the delivery of the content in each month. SEOHive are not liable for any delays caused by our Agency Partners or their Clients.
You will receive up to 5 hours of optimization work on each website. This will be managed through our project management system and a “hit list” of tasks we deem as appropriate for the website each month. If you want to change or amend the items in the hit list, you can do this through the project management system. Should any time allocation still be available in the same month, your requests will be actioned ahead of any pre-existing hit list items. Should your time allocation be already used or insufficient to complete your requests, they will roll into the following month.
On-page time cannot be accrued or rolled over from month to month. It is a monthly allowance for the subscription period billed only.
Our link outreach strategies work on the basis of prospecting 50 link opportunities per month. From these opportunities, we expect an average return of 15-20% progression to an open opportunity. SEOHive is not responsible for the conversion of link opportunities based on on-page factors (such as website design or functionality). It is the Agency’s responsibility to ensure that the client website is serviceable and in good order for user experience at all times.
