Host4u2's Responsibilities

Host4u2 agrees to furnish services, which are paid for in advance by the client, to the client, subject to complete compliance with the AUP and these Terms of Service. Host4u2 reserves the right to refuse Services to any potential client and/or to deny renewal of Services to any existing client, at the sole discretion of Host4u2.

Changes to Terms of Service and AUP

Host4u2's Terms of Service and AUP are both subject to change at any time and without notice at the sole discretion of Host4u2. A change in policy shall not be grounds for early contract termination or non-payment. Client recognizes that the nature of the service supplied and the initial rates and charges have been communicated to the client. The client is aware that from time to time rates may change based on availability of hardware, overall market conditions or other factors. Clients will be notified of any increases in rates or charges prior to the billing renewal date on which such increases will take effect.

Non-Payment/Service Interruption

Services interrupted for non-payment may be subject to a 10% late fee. Data stored on a client's services will not be available to the client until reconnection is established or alternative arrangements are made to the sole satisfaction of Host4u2. Clients deactivated for non-payment or charge-back are subject to their data being destroyed ten (10) days from suspension/charge-back date. Host4u2 is not responsible for data integrity, regardless of circumstance. Host4u2 strongly recommends keeping up to date and off network backups to protect against data loss.

 

Refunds/Charge-Backs

No Services rendered by Host4u2 are eligible for a refund. Prepayments and account credit are ineligible to be refunded, or transferred to alternate accounts. Any and all charge disputes must be reported directly to Host4u2 within thirty (30) days of the date which the charge originally occurred. If a charge which is deemed valid by Host4u2, and validated by our Terms of Service or AUP, is disputed to a financial institution by performing a charge-back, then the client agrees to pay an 'Administrative Fee' of $200 in addition to original amount of funds which were reclaimed.

Suspensions

In the event a service is suspended for non-payment, it will be subject to termination ten (30) days from the time of suspension. Host4u2 assumes no liability for the integrity of the data stored on a suspended server.

 

Cancellations

Host4u2 requires a seven (7) day notice of cancellation prior to the billing renewal date for the upcoming billing cycle, submitted via the billing portal. A seven (7) day notice before the upcoming billing date is also required for any downgrades. All client data will be destroyed immediately after the cancellation date. If the notice of cancellation is not provided within seven (7) days, the server will still be canceled however a termination fee of $25 will be applied to the account and must be paid within 15 days to avoid full account suspension.  

Fraud

In the event fraud is discovered the fraudulent account, and all related accounts, are subject to immediate suspension or termination at the sole discretion of Host4u2. All information available to Host4u2 about the fraudulent account/service shall be submitted to both local authorities, as well any financial institutions involved.
