We provide the service according to the specifications described in the hosting plans that the Customer selects during the registration process.
We are committed to keeping our prices the same over time. There may be times when, due to increased rates from our providers, we are forced to change the price, eventually charging the end customer with the increased price. In this case, we will maintain the previous level of service until the end of the paid period. We will notify the customer 30 days prior to the renewal date of any updated price, the customer will have time until the expiration date to notify us of their desire to terminate the service.
We reserve the right to immediately terminate the service if you violate these terms of service and any related policies. The contractual relationship is based on mutual trust and satisfaction. Should this not be the case, we will notify you at least 15 days before the renewal date, indicating that you will not be able to renew the service or purchase a new service. In this case, the customer will have the opportunity to make a backup to move the site elsewhere. An invoice for the renewal will not be sent, and if sent it will be cancelled.
For clarity, on this page, the term ‘services’ refers to the various services that Sites4Marketing LLCprovides to the Customer and, if it is an affiliate, the services it provides related to the affiliate program.
Art. 3. Permission to host your content
In order for us to host a Customer’s website, it is necessary for the Customer to upload its content and files to our servers. When you upload your files, you are creating one or more copies of your content on our systems.
By purchasing a hosting service from us, you acknowledge that these copies will be made, and you give us permission (a license) to maintain these copies on our servers and to make them available to Internet users.
The Customer is solely responsible for providing all content and other data that make up its website.
Art. 4. Personal Information
When you order our services your personal information, including your credit card information, is transmitted through the use of Secure Socket Layer technology in an encrypted manner.
We take Customer privacy seriously, we will not sell your personal information to any third party (other than a possible company that may purchase or take over Sites4Marketing LLC.
The Customer agrees to be called by a Sites4Marketing LLC representative at the telephone number specified by the Customer during registration, or to be contacted by e-mail for important information regarding Sites4Marketing LLC products or services.
Art. 5. Activation of the service
All orders are automatically checked by an anti-fraud system (maxmind).
If an order is reported as fraudulent, we will ask the customer for a copy of an identity document to check the accuracy of the data (first name, last name, address. We reserve the right to ask for additional information) entered during the order.
- If the data entered is true, we will delete the document from our systems and proceed to manually activate the order.
- If the details do not match, we will delete all the account details, including the copy of your ID.
The document must be written in Roman characters, we cannot check documents written in other characters.
We reserve the right not to activate the service in those cases in which:
- Customer has requested a warranty refund in the past
- The data isn’t real or we suspect it isn’t.
- The customer has defaulted in the past
In some cases a dedicated server may be available during the order but not available in the datacenter during activation. In this case we will add the amount paid as user credit and the customer can choose another available server.
In some cases a domain may be unavailable at the time of registration, or premium. In these cases we can proceed with a refund to the user credit or payment method used, or with a price update on the invoice, according to the customer’s preferences.
A customer can order a maximum of one trial plan per category (shared hosting, semi-dedicated hosting, reseller hosting). We will not accept multiple orders for trial plans.
Art. 6. Backup Service
As a courtesy we provide an automatic backup service to our Customers. We maintain the last 30 days of backup for each account (or sub account in the case of reseller hosting plans).
However, we are not and cannot be held responsible for a problem related to a corrupt or incomplete backup. We therefore recommend that all Customers maintain their own local backups.
Shared Services customers have access to a control panel that will allow them to restore a backup in complete autonomy. If the customer wants us to take care of the restore the operation has a cost of 20 USD (where applicable). Backups for shared services are provided via jetbackup.
We do what we can, but we cannot guarantee the integrity of the backups, the customer is solely responsible for the integrity of their data.
Art. 7. Satisfaction Guarantee
As we explain in this paragraph we offer the Customer a ‘Money Back Guarantee’ (the number of days is indicated on the relevant website) along with all other information about our hosting plans.
Here’s how cancellation works. If you delete your account we will refund the amount you paid, excluding any fees shown below.
If your plan has not been deactivated as a result of the refund, you will not be entitled to any support unless the plan amount plus the refund transaction costs are paid again.
Costs for domain registration or transfer (even if it was a free domain purchased through a promotion), dedicated IP, SSL certificate, SSL certificate installation, installation or activation of scripts or service of any kind, sitelock, ssh access, VPS, cloud or other dedicated solutions, software licenses, costs related to website migration are not refundable.
The registration fee for each domain is equal to their activation cost.
The only way to obtain a refund is to open a ticket on the administration, this request must be made within 30 days from the date of purchase, the date of the request, in no case will be taken into account the date of cancellation if the customer has requested the cancellation from the client area. Cancellation requests are not reviewed manually, so if we do not receive the request via ticket, we assume that the customer does not want to request a refund.
The money back guarantee is void in all cases where our terms are violated, which you can view on our website, and in all cases where the terms of service are not respected.
The 30 days are from the date of the first purchase. This guarantee is not available in the case of renewed services.
This guarantee is only valid for the first purchase. A Customer who already has service with us will not be able to claim the guarantee for subsequent purchases, even if these are made through a different account in the client area.
Under no circumstances can you receive a refund for a renewed service.
Art. 8. Right of withdrawal for consumers
The consumer customer, by law, in distance contracts or contracts concluded away from business premises has a period of 14 days to exercise the right of withdrawal.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, the consumer must contact the supplier within 14 days of signing the contract, expressing his desire to withdraw.
The supplier will have a further 14 days from the notice of withdrawal to refund the amount due to the consumer.
However, it is understood that the supplier will be entitled to retain the amount corresponding to the services already performed at the time of withdrawal and the amounts indicated in the Satisfied or Refunded Section and that the right of withdrawal is effective only for the first activation of the contract and not for each subsequent single renewal.
With reference to services, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised by the Customer/Consumer after the service has been fully provided. In fact, with the conclusion of the contract the Customer/Consumer has expressly agreed to lose the right of withdrawal following the full performance of the service by the supplier. By way of example only, the Customer acknowledges that the start of the procedure for registering a domain name, such as the activation of email accounts, as well as any other service in which the provider has proceeded to make the request to the various competent Registration Authorities and/or third party providers, are equivalent to “full provision of the service” pursuant to Article 59, paragraph 1, letter a) of Legislative Decree 206/2005.
Art. 9. Guaranteed Fast support
We guarantee a quick response by email (within 8 business hours) or we refund the current month’s hosting money so that the Client does not have to pay for that month.
This does not mean that we will resolve your issue within 8 hours, but that you will receive a quick response from one of our operators. Unfortunately some problems need more time to be resolved and we cannot guarantee a maximum time for their resolution.
Our offices hours are:
Mon-Fri: 09:00-12:00 14:00-18:00 (CENTRAL TIME USA)
Despite these office hours we make sure that we always have an operator connected at any time of the day, in fact 99% of the time you will receive your answers by email even at night and on holidays.
The servers are constantly monitored by at least one systems engineer, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to ensure their complete and continuous functionality.
We do not guarantee response times.
Before requesting support, the customer is required to create a backup copy and keep it on their local computer. Sites4marketing LLC assumes no responsibility for loss of data due to intervention by our technicians.
Art. 10. Ticket abuse
We always treat our Customers with the utmost respect, and we expect our Customers to treat our operators in the same way.
If a member of our staff feels that the Customer is being rude or unfair we reserve the right to suspend the Customer’s account and ask the Customer to use another hosting service.
In the event that we decide to terminate the service we will give the Customer 10 days notice to allow time to find a new hosting service. During this period we will not provide any kind of support. In this case there is no refund of any kind.
We encourage Customers to open only one ticket per issue. Opening multiple tickets slows down our support staff. Whenever we see that multiple tickets have been opened by the same Customer for the same problem, we will stop support for 24 hours, removing all Customer support requests without providing a response. In the event that the Customer continues to open new tickets despite the block, we reserve the right to terminate the Customer’s account with 10 days notice, as described in the previous paragraph.
Art. 11. Transfer promotion
We will make every effort to transfer the customer’s website without error or loss of data. It is the customer’s responsibility to make a full backup of their website and to keep this backup on their local computer. We accept no responsibility for the loss of data during the transfer, whatever the cause of such loss.
In order to participate in the promotion that provides a discount on the service, and the migration of the files by our hand, it is necessary to open a ticket by providing us with the access data to the provider, before or after purchasing the plan. In some cases, we can open it automatically, so you just have to answer our request.
This request must be sent within 7 days from the order date. The process of transferring files and databases will be handled manually, so it will be necessary to make arrangements with one of our operators via ticket, who will complete everything.
The transfer, depending on the case, may have costs, which will be indicated by our operators at the time of making arrangements with the customer. In order for us to carry out the transfer of your website in time, the Customer must send us the access data to the provider within 8 hours of the order by ticket.
The time it takes to transfer depends on the size of the account, the number of transfers in the queue, and any issues we may encounter while making a backup using the outgoing provider’s service. We will do our best to complete the process in 24-48 hours but cannot guarantee a maximum time since some factors are beyond our control.
If the customer wishes to schedule the migration at a pre-determined time a fee of 50 USD will be required.
As for the discount, it will be credited in the user credit, in a manual way, after the completion of the domain transfer. You need to request it by contacting our support within 7 days from the date of completion of the domain transfer. The promotion does not apply to dedicated services.
Where possible we will move the expiry date, otherwise we will apply a credit in the user’s account equivalent to the number of months they should receive a free gift.
The promotion is valid only for plans with annual payment (or longer period).
The following conditions must be met in order to perform the free migration from cPanel to cPanel:
- The provider must have the backup function active with the ability to upload the backup to an external FTP server.
- The main domain must match (old and new cPanel).
All we will do is copy the old cPanel account to one of our servers.
If we cannot proceed with the transfer from cPanel to cPanel we will have to do it manually, manual transfer only involves transferring one script and one database. Additional operations will be billed separately.
Art. 11.1. Hosting reseller
In the case of reseller hosting we transfer a number of accounts equal to those indicated on the sales page if the old provider has cPanel with the native backup feature active.
Otherwise we are forced to transfer the sites manually, in this case we will perform the transfer of only one website (one script and one database).
The promotion is valid only if a plan is purchased with an annual payment or longer period.
Transfers must be requested within the first 30 days of the purchase date.
Art. 12. Payments
As soon as the Customer signs up, their account will be activated with automatic renewal. This means that when the renewal date arrives, the hosting plan and domain will be renewed. The renewal date varies depending on the payment period. If the Customer wishes this not to occur, and does not want to renew their account, they must cancel the service before the next renewal date.
You can cancel the service directly from the client area, even after an invoice has been issued, if it has not yet been paid.
If the Customer has any questions about when the renewal date is, they can log in to the client area and check or contact us. The renewal date of his account is always shown in the client area.
Invoices for renewals will be issued 9 days in advance for monthly plans, 21 days in advance for semi-annual plans and 30 days in advance for annual plans and longer periods. You can request an early invoice via ticket in case you want to renew before these deadlines.
Art. 12.1. Domains
Domains are taken offline by the registrar the day after expiration. A domain that is not paid on time will be offline the next day.
Domains are put into a grace period first, and a redemption period before they expire completely. The number of days that must pass before a domain is put into these states depends on its extent.
A domain that enters its redemption period is considered deleted and additional costs must be incurred for its recovery.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the domain has been renewed after payment. We send an automated confirmation email to notify the customer that the domain has been renewed. If the customer does not receive this email within 24 hours of receiving payment they should contact us via ticket for a manual check. We cannot take responsibility for the expiration of a domain if the customer does not make this check.
Art. 12.2. Shared Services
If more than 5 days have passed since the billing date of the hosting services and we have not received full payment, your account will be suspended, which means that your data, files and website and any other services you have with us will no longer be accessible.
If within the next 25 days the Customer pays the amount due, we will reactivate the account and all data, files and website will be available immediately. We reserve the right to suspend an account in those cases where there are unpaid invoices in the Customer’s account. We will only reactivate the account once payment has been received. Depending on the case, the system may apply a late fee, which our operators cannot eliminate.
If a further 25 days pass from the date on which the Client’s account has been suspended and he has not made payment in full, SupportHost OÜ is entitled to delete all files he has uploaded to the server.
To recap, if the Client is 30 days late on payment their files will be deleted. The Customer acknowledges that this is our policy on data retention, and waives all rights to their data in these situations.
In some cases we can recover a terminated account, this operation has a cost of 50€.
Art. 13. Pre-approved payments
Some payment gateways (including PayPal) create pre-approved payments. In the event of receiving an automatic payment, it will not be us who requested it, but the Customer’s account that sent it to our account.
The amount will be added to your user credit, and may be used without expiration for the purchase or renewal of any of our services. If you deem it appropriate to receive a refund, you will be held responsible for sending the payment (as it was automatically sent from your account to ours and not requested by us) and we will charge a fee equal to the transaction costs for refunding such amount, which will be refunded using the same means used for receipt.
We can only refund payments that are not older than 30 days. If this limit has been exceeded the credit will only be available to be used as a user credit.If the payment has been used automatically to renew a service we will not be able to refund the amount to the Customer in any way, even if the non-renewal of the plan has been requested. We recommend that you ensure that you suspend your pre-approved payment as soon as you decide you do not want to renew the service.
Art. 14. Transfer of a domain
In the event that a customer transfers a domain elsewhere we will proceed to delete the linked hosting plan (if any).
Art. 15. Free domain
Some of our plans include the registration, transfer or renewal of a domain for free. The promotion is valid only if the domain is purchased at the same time as the plan. It will not be possible to change the domain, or have the domain free in the future.
In addition, if you already have a domain or hosting plan with us, you will not be able to participate in the promotion unless you wish to purchase a new hosting plan with a new domain.
In some cases the system will disconnect the domain from your hosting plan, such as (but not limited to) if you renew the domain manually from the client area, if the plan is suspended due to a delay, if you switch from an annual payment to a monthly payment, if the customer disables the automatic domain renewal, etc…
Art. 16. Copyright infringements
We have a zero-tolerance policy on copyright infringement
We may, in appropriate circumstances and at our complete discretion, disable and/or terminate the account of copyright infringers. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that infringes copyright, or your intellectual property rights have been violated in any way, you must provide us with the following information:
