However, in using Ciscom as your web Services provider, you agree to comply with the following Terms and Conditions. Among other reasons, this is to protect Ciscom and all customers from irresponsible use of the web space and Services.
Terms of Service
Ciscom provides World Wide Web page hosting and other Services. Ciscom reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all Services provided by Ciscom when Ciscom decides that the account has been inappropriately used or otherwise.
Personal accounts are to be used by the primary owner only. Personal account holders are not permitted resell, store or give away web-hosting services of their website to other parties. Web hosting services are defined as allowing a separate, third party to host content on the owner's web site. Exceptions to this include ad banners, classified ads, and personal ads.
Ciscom reserves the right to refuse service and /or access to its servers to anyone. Ciscom do not allow any of the following content to be stored on its servers:
- Illegal Material - This includes copyrighted works, commercial audio, video, or music files, and any material in violation of any Federal, State or Local regulation.
- Search Engine Banned or Search Engine Unfriendly Content and Practices - This includes hidden pages, deliberate multi-repeated words, hidden text in the same colour as the background, spamming of search engines and so on.
Unlimited Use Policy
High bandwidth usage: Ciscom offers an unlimited use policy by maintaining very large ratios of bandwidth per customer. In rare cases, Ciscom may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize server performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, Ciscom reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.
High Resource User Policy
Resources are defined as bandwidth and/or processor utilization. Ciscom may implement the following policy to its sole discretion: When a website is found to be monopolising the resources available Ciscom reserves the right to suspend that site immediately. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers. Customers may be offered an option whereby Ciscom continues hosting the website for an additional fee.
Domain Name Registration
Domain names are registered on your behalf in your name or the name of your business. You are the registered owner of the domain name unless agreed otherwise. When we register a domain name for you, it will automatically renew after the period prescribed by the registration authority. This is normally every two years for .uk domains and every one year for Top Level Domains (Tld) such as .com. If you no longer require the domain name, you must tell us at least 60 days before the renewal date. You agree to pay the domain name renewal cost until such time as you give us notice that you no longer require the domain name. If you give us sufficient notice that you no longer require the domain name, it will expire at the next renewal date and will be available for registration by a new owner. If you do not pay for your domain name, Ciscom will mark it for expiry at the next renewal date.
All accounts are set up on a prepay basis. Although Ciscom reserves the right to change prices of accounts or services at any time all pricing is guaranteed for the period of prepayment. Payment is due each anniversary year or month following the date the account was established. Customers will automatically be charged again at the end of their prepay period unless closure notification has already been given. In situations where the card number on file is declined Ciscom will immediately suspend the facility to purchase services on-line until the outstanding charge is processed successfully. In addition, Ciscom reserves the right to suspend other services until the outstanding debt is cleared. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer sends a written cancellation request. No bills or invoices will be sent by regular mail. All invoices will be sent directly to customers via email shortly after the online purchase has been made. At this point the customer's card will be charged automatically.
All payment is in UK sterling.
