We provide web hosting to many clients, and we have a responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best services available. The following guidelines were designed to ensure these obligations are met.

The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.
Pornography is prohibited. Both ACEdot.com and our providers will be the sole arbiter in determining violations of this provision. Also prohibited are sites that promote any illegal activity or present content that may be damaging to our servers or any other server on the internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

We will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Any violation is subject to a penalty of up to US$1,000.
- Background Running Programs: We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a case-by-case basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.

- Refusal of Service: We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion.
All accounts and customers using our services must adhere to the above policies. Failure to follow any term or condition will be grounds for immediate account deactivation.
Customers who are on recurring plans are due for automatic billing from their credit card approximately 7 days prior to the anniversary of their sign up date, and every period thereafter, on or about the same day of the month. If you elect to pay by check/cheque (only available for 3 monthly, six monthly and annually billing), we will bill you 10 days before the expiry of your present account and payment must be paid within 7 days of receipt.
If your credit card information has changed, then you must notify us immediately so we may change this information. If on your bill date, your credit card is declined, or check/cheque payment is not received on the due date, your account may be interrupted temporarily and an email will be sent to the address on file to notify you of this problem. If payment is not arranged within 14 days, we will close your account, and any files will be lost.
All prices are in U.S.A. (US$)Dollars.
Credit Card Payments
We are happy to accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and BankCard cards for payment. We use various fraud prevention methods to protect us, our merchant account, our bank and the customer who owns the credit card being used. This includes tracking the IP number and ISP of the person who is using the credit card, verifying the card matches the Zip/Post Code and Address of the cardholder. If anyone attempts to obtain service using a fraudulent credit card, your hosting account will be terminated without warning, we will have the right to place an 'account suspended' page on your IP, and we will cooperate with authorities to report the incident and the information used to obtain the account including your domain name. We take credit card fraud very seriously. If you have received a credit card statement with our name on it, and did not order our services, please email email@example.com immediately. Your credit card statement will be billed as WebPay.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with our services, please let us know. We build our services around making hosting simple for the customer and want you to be happy. If for some reason we cannot meet your needs, you may notify us in writing and we will discontinue billing your account at the end of your current bill cycle. We require seven days notice of any cancellation. No refunds are issued for hosting services already paid for, except during the first 30 days of service.
New domain registrations
New domain registrations are final once submitted. However, you may transfer your domain to another provider if you wish. Once you have submitted your order for a domain name it is registered and not reversible, and we cannot refund the domain registration charges. To transfer or modify domain information, email us. If a domain is not available or taken before our system can register it, we will notify you and offer to register another domain or refund the registration charges. You should note the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy from ICANN before registering a new domain.
We are not responsible for backing up your web files. It is solely your responsibility. We provide a facility on your Control Panel ("Backup") for downloading your backup. This should be done daily. Your data is precious, protect it as such.
Additional data transfer is billed at US$6.00 per 1000 Megabytes/month (or portion thereof). When you exceed, or are about to exceed, we will attempt to send you a courtesy e-mail. We are not responsible for checking on your account daily and if you exceed, you are still responsible for your usage charges. You may elect to change to a different hosting plan during the bill cycle (we prorate changes mid-cycle) to help cover usage, however, you must remain on that new plan for at least 30 days. If you do not change to another plan, you are charged the fee above. We cannot make exceptions to this for any reason, including not sending you a courtesy email.
