The use of paid services from CloudCone constitutes an agreement by the customer to the terms outlined below
The initial service term of the agreement shall begin on the date that CloudCone generates an e-mail message announcing the activation of the account (the “Service Commencement Date”) and shall continue either monthly or annually depending on the term picked by the customer. Upon expiration of the initial term, this agreement shall automatically renew for the same length as the initial term unless CloudCone or the customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal at least one (1) days prior to the expiration of the initial term or the then-current renewal term, as applicable. The initial term and any renewal term may be referred to collectively in this agreement as the “Term.”
02. Cancellation & refunds
CloudCone reserves the right to cancel any service provided at any time. In this event customers will be entitled to a prorated refund based upon the remaining period of service. If a customer contravenes CloudCone’s terms of service, a refund will not be issued in the event of a cancellation by CloudCone or the customer. Any incentives offered to customers when opening the account will also be cancelled. Customers may be given the option to purchase services which were offered as start-up incentives in the result of a cancellation. Fees charged on a prepay basis are non-refundable, this includes all monthly and yearly services. Under no circumstance will license fees such as cPanel be refunded. Customer agrees to submit all cancellations at least 24 hours prior to the next billing date of the service. Failure to pay will result in suspension up to termination of services and the balance being turned over to an outside collection agency for recovery. The only acceptable methods of cancellation are a ticket submitted via the billing system or cancellation submitted via the billing system.
03. Content restrictions
CloudCone does not allow the use of it’s services for illegal activities. This includes hosting of copyrighted material, nulled scripts, or anything that is considered illegal under US law. A suspension leading up to termination will be imposed for a breach of these terms. While we strive to accommodate all types of sites our shared hosting may not be used for the following:
- File or image hosting sites
- Download scripts such as but not limited to Rapidleech and TorrentFLux
- Scripts than run continuously
- Scripts that run unattended or could be considered daemons
- IRC bots
- Anything that would be considered illegal under US law
Furthermore the end user is solely responsible for all files on their site including any uploaded from compromised or hacked scripts. It is the responsibility of the client to make sure the permissions on their files are set correctly and all scripts in use are up to date with the latest patches.
Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. Customer’s billing cycle shall be monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually or biennially as indicated on their order, beginning on the service commencement date. CloudCone may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the order provides for credit/debit card billing, customer authorizes CloudCone to bill subsequent fees to the credit/debit card on or after the first day of each successive billing cycle during the term of this agreement; otherwise CloudCone will invoice customer via electronic mail to the primary customer contact listed on the order. Invoiced fees may be issued on or before the 1st day of each billing cycle, and the fees shall be due no later than 3 days after the due date, but in no event earlier than the first day of each billing cycle.
Payments must be made in United States dollars. The customer is responsible for providing CloudCone with changes to billing information (such as credit card expiration, change in billing address). At its option, CloudCone may accrue charges to be made to a credit/debit card until such charges exceed $10.00. CloudCone may charge interest on overdue amounts at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law. CloudCone may suspend the service without notice if payment for the service is overdue. Fees not disputed within sixty (60) days of due date are conclusively deemed accurate. Customer agrees to pay CloudCone’s reasonable reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment, and to pay CloudCone’s reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs.
4.1. Fee Increases
CloudCone may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a renewal term by giving notice to the customer of the new fees at least forty five (45) days prior to the beginning of the renewal term, and if the customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 2 above, the customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that renewal term and any subsequent renewal terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent renewal term).
4.2. Early Termination
Customer acknowledges that the amount of the fee for the service is based on customer’s agreement to pay the fee for the entire initial term, or renewal term, as applicable. In the event CloudCone terminates the agreement for customer’s breach of the agreement in accordance with Section 11 (Termination), or customer terminates the service other than in accordance with Section 11 (Termination) for CloudCone’s breach, the unpaid fees for each billing cycle remaining in the initial term or then-current renewal term, as applicable, are due on the business day following termination of the Agreement.
05. LAW / AUP
Customer agrees to use the service in compliance with applicable law and CloudCone’s Acceptable Use Policy posted at https://www.cloudcone.com/policies/use-policy (the “AUP”), which is hereby incorporated by reference in this agreement. Customer agrees that CloudCone may, in its reasonable commercial judgment consistent with industry standards, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on customer’s use of the services. Amendments to the AUP are effective on the earlier of CloudCone’s notice to the customer that an amendment has been made, or the first day of any renewal term that begins subsequent to the amendment. Customer agrees to cooperate with CloudCone’s reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between CloudCone and the customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, CloudCone’s commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.
06. Customer information
