Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server or customer of EdgeServ is strictly prohibited. As our customer you are responsible for all your accounts. This includes abuse of the server’s CPU and RAM resources to a degree that effects the performance of other customers on your node. Should you violate the Terms of Services outlined within, your account will be cancelled without chance of refund. If you abuse system resources, you will be contacted and offered options for accommodating or reducing usage prior to having your service terminated. Abusive processes, however, will be shut down prior to our attempts to contact you.
Customers may not use our services for spamming activities / sending unsolicited emails / requests. If found doing so, we have the right to terminate customer account without any prior notification and no refund would be issued.
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel or suspend service, at our sole discretion.
All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of EdgeServ must adhere to the above policies, with the exception of system resources in respect to dedicated servers.
All shared (cPanel and VPS) services will be securely backed up via automated script every week to a remote location. Access to these backups is not guaranteed and is left to the discretion of EdgeServ.
Removal or exclusion from backups may be requested at any time by e-mailing a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keeping backups of the data is your responsibility. We are not responsible for the loss of data due to any reasons beyond our control.
By the Account Activation Date of each month, EdgeServ shall either:
(1) charge the client’s chosen billing method through the associated PayPal subscription;
(2) deliver, by e-mail or regular mail, an invoice in accordance with the applicable Service Fees for services rendered for the current month. When an invoice is delivered to the client, payment shall be remitted to EdgeServ by no later than the specified payment due date. EdgeServ shall be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement for client’s failure to make timely payments. You will be provided with an invoice on a monthly basis. All PayPal subscriptions are automatically processed through PayPal and charged to the default or backup payment method that you selected upon signup. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient credit to cover this transaction. In the event that there is insufficient funding, we will send an e-mail notification, at which point the client must resolve the issue with PayPal within 24 hours. If we do not receive a response within 24 hours, the account, and all accounts under that account plan, may be suspended. We cannot be held responsible for non payment due issues with paypal subscriptions or non functioning of payment gateways due to any reasons beyond our control.
Certain services carry a setup fee charged by EdgeServ to client, which must be paid by client in order to have use of said services. These fees will be specified on the order form prior to choosing your product. If client terminates this agreement, client shall be responsible for any and all outstanding fees owed to EdgeServ and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, the client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month, regardless of when client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if the client provides notice of termination on the 15th day of a particular month, the client will be responsible for service fees for the entire month, and such fees will not be pro-rated or refunded.
