Web Hosting

Billing

All hosting services are normally billed within the first 10 days of any given month in advance. Bills for partial periods are prorated to 1/2 months. ElectroHost charges a setup fee of $50.00 for all new accounts, this fee will be paid with initial payment, and is a one-time fee. For customers that exceed their monthly Traffic Allowance, ElectroHost reserves the right to bill the customer an additional C$30.00 per month for each 1,000 megabytes of data transfer. Please refer to our pricing schedule for current rates. ElectroHost reserves the right to change pricing within thirty (30) days notice. Pre-paid annual contract rates are not affected until renewals take effect. For colocation and dedicated ISDN/dedicated dialup customers, service may be canceled with 60 days prior written notice only, and the customer will be billed for that period. Overdue accounts are subject to interest penalties, account cancellation or service suspension. Accounts canceled due to overdue status are subject to an additional fee equivalent to 60 days service.

Domain Registration

ElectroHost will provide the hardware and system administration necessary to provide World Wide Web access to the Internet community. ElectroHost will also provide a single and unique Universal Resource Locator (URL) address for use by the Customer (i.e., www.electrohost.net/yourname) or at the Customer's request, ElectroHost will assign a virtual domain name to our servers (i.e., www.yourname.com) provided that the name is legally registered to and under the control of the Customer. The Customer understands that domain name registration can take 2 weeks (or more). ElectroHost will, however, assign a working address to the Customer's pages. The Customer agrees to pay the domain name renewal fee directly to InterNIC or other appropriate domain name registrar. Neither Network Solutions, VeriSign, Thawte nor InternetSecure is related in any way to ElectroHost, and their rates and policies may be subject to change. This fee is subject to change by Network Solutions or other domain name registrar.

Network Service

The Customer understands and agrees that ElectroHost will make every effort to keep our network of servers running continuously. However, our servers will, from time-to-time, be disconnected due to routine maintenance, upgrades and other required events. In addition, due to circumstances beyond our control, service may be periodically interrupted. ElectroHost will make its best effort to keep all information on our servers backed-up. However, the Customer assumes responsibility for making separate back-ups of any information posted to our servers. ElectroHost is not responsible for lost materials or information. ElectroHost shall have no obligation to provide services to the extent and for the period that ElectroHost is prevented from doing so by reason of any cause beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation the inability to use or the failure of any third party telecommunications carrier.

Security

ElectroHost will also make its best effort to maintain security on our network of servers. However, the nature of the Web and the Internet is not secure by default. The Customer assumes responsibility for the appropriate use of security within the Customer's scripts and directories. Perl 4 and 5 and Java CGI scripts are the only CGI scripts supported by ElectroHost. All CGI scripts require approval by ElectroHost. Our Shared Secure Servers use the Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") between a compatible web browser and our servers. Information forwarded from our Secure Servers that does not use SSL will not be as secure as using SSL.

Content

The Customer assumes full responsibility for all content posted to ElectroHost's servers on the Customer's behalf, including any trademark, copyright, patent or other intellectual property submitted to ElectroHost for either creative services and/or straight posting to our servers. ElectroHost reserves the right to remove without notice any material which, in its sole opinion, may result in a violation of intellectual property rights of others or any other applicable Federal, Provincial, Common, or International laws or regulations. ElectroHost does not tolerate e-mail spamming or similar abuses of its network. The Customer will comply with the current ElectroHost Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"). Customer acknowledges that the AUP may be amended by ElectroHost from time to time, and the Customer agrees to be bound by such amendments. The Customer will adhere to the laws of Ontario and Canada in using the services including but not limited to those laws regarding:

  1. court ordered publication bans,
  2. restrictions on publishing, printing, distributing, possessing, selling, advocating, promoting or exposing, obscene material, child pornography, or hate propaganda and Client understands that these situations could generate criminal liability;
  3. restrictions on the use of trade-marks or trade names;
  4. restrictions on the use of copyright work, including without limitation, softwares;
  5. restrictions on defamation, libel, harm to reputation, invasion of privacy, misuse or failure to protect personal information, violation of secrecy, unfair competition and other situations which could generate civil liability; and vi) export and import restrictions. The Customer will be solely responsible for any and all items or statements transmitted, posted, received or created through the Customer's account, on ElectroHost's system or any other system, and their content, even if transmitted, posted, received or created by someone else, and the Customer agrees to indemnify and hold ElectroHost, its directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and affiliates, harmless from any loss, damage or liability which may result therefrom.
