It is our policy to terminate the Services of customers who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights.

9.9.1 Further, you may not use the Services in connection with any content that we reasonably believe: promotes, incites, or threatens violence; is in support of or furtherance of sex trafficking; contains harassing content or hate speech; violates any person’s privacy; constitutes terrorism or trafficking in weapons or other illegal items; or is likely to result in retaliation against our system, network, or employees, including behaviour that results in any denial of service attack.

In addition, and at our discretion, we may place limits on the number of outbound messages you send if our review of your account indicates that you are jeopardizing our network stability. Without limiting any other rights we may have, the parties agree that should you breach this section by sending spam it would be difficult to determine actual damages.

You may not perform any vulnerability or penetration testing of our network or systems, including your own hosted environment, without our prior written approval.

13.2.3 if in our opinion your usage puts at risk the continued Services provision to other customers, we may limit the Services we provide to what we have agreed in our contract with you. We may not be able to give you notice of this.

13.3. We assume no responsibility for the deletion or failure to store or deliver email or other messages.

Special additional provisions relating only to domain names

These terms apply when you instruct us to register, renew, transfer in or transfer out, a domain name and are in addition to the terms set out above. You agree to be bound by them.

17. Your undertakings

17.1. You acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility to supply accurate and reliable contact details and relevant information. You undertake to supply such accurate, complete full records and as are required by any relevant registrar and/or registry and to ensure that such details are kept updated and complete at all times using the “Client Area” portal provided.

17.2. You warrant that to the best of your knowledge neither the registration nor the use of the domain name infringes the legal rights of any third party and that you are authorised to apply for or renew the domain name.

17.3. The registration of a domain name and its continued use is subject (in addition to these terms and conditions) to your continued compliance with the terms and conditions of the relevant registrar and/or registry. You agree to be bound by such terms and conditions, including all rules and policies.

18. Domain name disputes

You acknowledge that:

18.1. the registration or use of a domain name does not necessarily entitle us to use that name in a particular context;

18.2. your contract with a relevant registrar and/or registry may provide that the registrar and/or registry may take action which might include:

18.2.1 the suspension or revocation of your application for a domain name; or

18.2.2 the registration of a domain name allocated to you to a third party.

18.3. we will have no responsibility or involvement in relation to any dispute between you and a registrar.

18.4. You now therefore agree to indemnify us against all costs, claims and expense, including the reasonable cost of management time, in respect of any event, act or omission we may be required to take by any third party with jurisdiction, including a domain name registrar and/or registry.

19. Action on your default

We may in our absolute discretion cancel, take ownership, dispose of and/or refuse to register, release or renew any domain name if:

19.1. our fees in respect of that domain name are overdue;

19.2. we are required to do so by regulation or competent authority;

19.3. it is otherwise permitted under these terms and conditions.

20. Domain name registration

20.1. We will attempt to register a domain name on your instruction and to notify you of the outcome.

20.2. We do not warrant or guarantee that any domain name will be registered or is capable of registration.

20.4. Immediately you receive from us notice of registration, you should check the registration particulars and, the event of error, inform us immediately.

21. Domain name renewal

Once a domain name renewal has been processed it cannot be reversed nor any fees refunded.

We will not renew a domain name (leaving you solely responsible for renewal) for which we do not receive a renewal notice. Without limitation, we may not receive a renewal notice:

21.1. because we are not the Registrar Agent;

21.2. because the relevant registrar and/or registry sends the renewal invoices direct to you;

21.3. if the domain name has been transferred to another Internet Service Provider.

22. Domain name transfer in

22.1. If we have to transfer your domain name from another Internet service provider to our servers, you understand that:

22.1.1 we may charge additional cost for this service;
