TITLE OF AGREEMENT
This agreement shall be referred to as the Terms of Service Agreement ("Agreement")
NOW THEREFORE THIS AGREEMENT WITNESSES THAT in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements herein contained and subject to the term and conditions hereafter set out, the parties agree to the following:
This Services Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions which govern your subscription of Offshore Hosting and/or Offshore Domain Registration. By clicking on the "Submit" button, you acknowledge that you have read the Offshore Services Agreement, and you agree to its terms of service.
Our service is considered to be private. We do not request your Name, Address, Phone Number, Fax Number or any other personal or business information except your email address.
If you volunteer any of the above information to Offshore Hosting Centers, we will document it in our records.
Domains you purchase through Offshore Hosting Centers Domain Trust are held in a "Domain Trust" on your behalf by Offshore Hosting Centers. You will be issued or you will select a Customer ID# at the time of your order and you will use that Cutomer ID# to maintain control over your account. Under this agreement, you are granted all the rights of domain management as if you were the direct registering party. Offshore Hosting Centers acts as a trust. This means that we administer your domains for you as a sub contracted 3rd party. You may buy, sell and manage your domains. You may also redirect your domains to any server and specify DNS for your domains.
If you ever wish to cancel our offshore service for your domain(s), we will transfer ownership of the domain to you upon your request as long as your account payment status is up to date.
If you neglect to pay for services we reserve the right to cancel this agreement and repossess the rights granted to you over the domain(s) in question.
We reserve the right to terminate your hosting account without notice for any violation of our agreement or any apparent or implied violation of the law.
Clients may occupy only the amount of disk space on Offshore Hosting Centers Servers and utilize no more than the network bandwidth which is allotted by Offshore Hosting Centers. Account upgrades are available.
Client may be charged for over-utilization of either disk space or network bandwidth.
Client shall not use the Services for chain letters, junk mail, spamming, or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process.
Client also shall not engage in any unsolicited email practices on or through our servers.
Offshore Hosting Centers, in its sole discretion, may immediately terminate this Agreement if Client engages in any of the foregoing. To report any unacceptable behavior by a third party using the Services, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
APPROPRIATE USE OF OUR SERVICES
Please read our Acceptible Use Policy in conjunction with this agreement. Both apply to your account with Offshore Hosting Centers.
in the event that you site falls victim to a dDOS or dos attack we reserve the right to suspend, cancel, relocate, and/or terminate any contract without a refund at our discretion. In these situations we will do everything possible, but will also act to protect the greater good of all clients and reserve the right to eliminate a single client in order to accomplish this.
PASSWORDS and account access information:
You will either choose or be issued an account number, user name and password, or some combination thereof. It is your responsibility to ensure you do not lose this data. If you do lose this data we have no way of matching your account to the owner of the account and you risk locking yourself out from your hosting account, customer support and ownership of the domains held in trust.
It is very important to keep this data safely stored.
Depending on the circumstances each violator will be issued our "one-time warning" email. This email warns them that their behavior will lead to the termination of their site, as well as ban them from ever returning to Offshore Hosting Centers. If costs are incurred due to our ip's being blocked, there will be a fee payable within 48hrs to Offshore Hosting Centers. Fee's vary depending on the ip block and situation $30 - $50 USD.
Either after an initial warning or warnings, or if the situation is considered severe, the client will be notified of their termination and their site will be removed from Offshore Hosting Centers servers.
If you have collected email addresses of willing participants to your organization, company, program, or newsletters then it is ok to send out bulk email to these people. It is also ok to send out personalized individual email to other companies you know or have heard about that have not given you consent, but of which you have received a referral.
Offshore Hosting Centers reserves the right to decide what it considers "spam", "UCE", "mail bombing", or "bulk email". Let us know if you are unsure of your email responsibilities before placing an order.
Laws vary drastically from state to state and country to country. We recommend studying the law and requesting permission from us before mass mailing when there is any question as to the legalities of the mailing in question.
You may not use our servers to 'catch' traffic coming from mass mail sent from other servers or or internet providers.
If any clause, sentence, paragraph or part of this Agreement or the application thereof to any person or circumstances, shall be adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair, or invalidate the remainder of this Agreement or the application thereof to any other person or circumstances, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered and to the person or circumstances involved. It is hereby declared to be the intent that this Agreement would have been accepted even if such invalid provision had not been included.
