Software Services Agreement

last updated 08/20/2019

ACS Technologies Group, Inc. and its affiliates, their officers, directors, employees or agents (collectively referred to as "ACST") is the developer of the ACS, Parish Data Systems (“PDS”), and HeadMaster Products (collectively referred to as the ” Products”). As a customer ("Customer" or “Licensee”, typically a church, school, or an organization) you have purchased one or more of our Products and Services, (collectively, our "Services").

This Software Services Agreement (the “Agreement”) supersedes and invalidates the original Software License Agreement and memorializes the agreed upon Services between ACST and you, the Customer.

Using Your Products

Each Product is distributed to a single named Customer with one registration code. Redistribution or transfer of registration codes is prohibited and puts the Customer at risk of terminating this agreement and use of the Services. Software updates (e.g. enhancements and corrections) to the Products are available to Customers who are enrolled in an ongoing Support program (e.g. Preferred Client Program or a Megachurch Client Program) and are in good standing.

As part of this Agreement, the Customer must review and adhere to ACST’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service and Use. The Customer also agrees to use content as set forth in our Intellectual Property Policy, which outlines what is and isn’t allowed as it relates to:

  • ACST Intellectual Property
  • ACST Content
  • Prohibited Content
  • Sharing Content Online
  • Third-Party Content

Customer data that is stored in connection with our Services belongs to the Customer. The Products store data locally and the Customer is responsible for managing, securing, and backing up their data. For more information about how we can help keep Customer data secure, visit Data Security Measures.

Payment for Services

We prefer that Customers set up recurring electronic payments, either via bank draft, (ACH/EFT or PAD), or Credit Card to pay for access and use of the Services.

If you pay by ACH/EFT or PAD, and your account has insufficient funds, ACST will charge at minimum a $30 fee for each such occurrence. Your bank may charge you a returned item fee as well.

Pricing and Price Increases

The current pricing terms are maintained in ACST systems, and reflect the Customer’s preferences for Services.

ACST may increase prices from time to time for your Products. We recognize these changes may affect your budget planning, and we will notify you in advance so that you can make any desired adjustments.


We offer our Products on an "as is" and "as available" basis, to the maximum extent permitted by law. For more information, please review the Limitation of Liability and Force Majeure section in our Terms of Service and Use policy.

Term and Termination

When the Customer determines that Services are no longer needed, the term will continue until the end of the current Billing Period and the Agreement is terminated.

To cancel this Agreement, please call 1-800-736-7425. You must be authorized to make account changes and are responsible for paying any outstanding payments. You will be requested to complete a brief exit interview before terminating this Agreement.

Relationship of the Parties

ACST is an independent contractor and the Customer agrees that no partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship exists between the two parties.


All notices under this Agreement shall be in writing and delivered electronically.

Customers, you are responsible for making sure ACST has the correct contact information to reach you. If you need to change your communication preferences with us, please call Support at 1-800-669-2509. We’ll need to know your name, email address, Site number, and the details of your request.


No changes or modifications or waivers to this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties.

If you have any questions about this Agreement, please contact 1-800-736-7425.
