Note: When registering an account or signing up for a service with Click IT Internet Ltd, you will be agreeing to our 'Terms & Conditions of Service' as set out below.
Click IT Internet Ltd will carry out work only where an agreement is provided by email. An 'order' is deemed to be a written contract between Click IT Internet Ltd and the client. Payment terms are strictly 50% of the total quoted setup fee before any work commences, then the remainder upon completion prior to the site going live on your domain. All payments are non-refundable.
Due to the hosted design platform that we use, all sites must be hosted with our hosting company TSOHost and cannot be transferred to another hosting provider. Click IT Internet Ltd cannot accept liability for losses caused by the unavailability, malfunction or interruption of this service, or for loss of turnover, sales, revenue, profits or indirect, consequential or special loss.
Once your site is live on your domain it is assumed that the project has been completed to your satisfaction. Any additional work is then charged at the prevailing support cost.
Should you choose the option of having editorial rights to your website you will be able to make changes to your own site and amend content. Click IT Internet Ltd does not accept responsibility for any errors, problems or data loss caused by changes that you make to your site. If we are required to repair any such errors, or rebuild your website from a backup, this work will be charged at the current support hourly rate.
We require you to submit your own text and images for inclusion on your website. All text should be divided into sections relevant to your page names and submitted by you in electronic format via a suitable file transfer service such as DropBox. All text and images submitted must be free of copyright and Click IT Internet Ltd accepts no responsibility for any infringement of copyright law arising from any text or images used on your site. If you do not supply content we may use dummy text and images from a copyright free source. By keeping that content you accept responsibility for it. All spell checking is the responsibility of the client.
We may include plugins and modules on your website to improve the overall user experience on your site. These include but are not limited to contact forms, calendars, e-commerce shopping carts and maps. Where these third party apps are hosted by another supplier we cannot accept responsibility for any loss of service or malfunction that may occur. Each third party reserves the right to alter or remove their service and or charge fees if certain usage limits are reached. Customers will be notified prior to such case and would be able to decide whether or not to continue with the service or to find an alternative provider.
Billing and Charges
Our cloud hosting packages carry a 30 day money-back guarantee. If you are dissatisfied for any reason at any time within the first 30 days then we will issue a full hosting refund. Please note that VPS orders, design, setup costs, support charges, and domain costs are not refundable.
Renewal invoices are generated at least 7 days in advance and sent to your registered e-mail address. It is your responsibility to ensure this e-mail address is kept up to date and can receive emails from us.
It is important that we receive payment on time. All services must be paid for by the due date shown on the invoice unless a written adjustment has been agreed. Failure to complete payment after this time will result in an automatic reminder when the invoice is overdue, and automatic account & website suspension should the invoice remain unpaid for more than 5 days. This applies to all hosting accounts including VPS servers. Domain names expire on the day immediately after their renewal date. As such we strongly recommend renewing a minimum of 48 hours before the expiration date.
If an invoice is unpaid, the related service will be suspended until such time that payment is received and you inform us by email that you have paid. At this point we will use all reasonable endeavours to restore service within 24 hours.
Unless otherwise stated, all payments must be received in UK Pounds sterling. If you pay by foreign bank transfer, then you must be responsible for all foreign currency charges.
We reserve the right to alter our prices at any time and will notify you of any alteration by providing you with a written notice. Notice of any price alteration will be sent via e mail to the e mail address that we hold for you in our account. If you have already purchased a particular service then the price alteration will only become effective when the service reaches the end of its current term.
You warrant that you are lawfully authorised to make payment using the payment card or facility you disclose to us. In the event where you are not the named cardholder, you acknowledge that you and the named cardholder both accept these terms and conditions and are jointly and severally liable for any payment(s) due. You hereby indemnify us in the event that the cardholder or issuer declines any transaction for payment, including our costs in recovering the outstanding amount due.
If you attempt a chargeback or dispute a transaction with your bank, we reserve the right to suspend all services provided to you with immediate effect. Services will remain suspended and until such time as the chargeback has been fully reversed in our favour.
Account usage is checked frequently. All accounts will receive notification when bandwidth usage is nearing the account's limit. Overusage will result in automatic account suspension unless a prior agreement has been reached. Usually the cheapest option is to upgrade to the next package where available, otherwise our standard charges are 40p per GB per month for additional bandwidth usage and £2 per month per 250MB disk usage. Upon suspension please contact us to arrange upgrade pricing.
All sites are limited to a total of 2GB of data storage. Should you use more than 2GB of storage we will request for you to either pay an additional hosting fee or delete enough files to bring your total storage back down below 2GB. Should the required files not be deleted we reserve the right to delete files ourselves in order to bring your total storage back down below 2GB.
If not specifically stated to the contrary, our services are intended to be used for the purposes of hosting websites and e-mail. Batch processing, video encoding/transcoding, web crawling/spidering, archiving and online backup systems and any system designed to consume CPU or disk resources for purposes other than hosting a website are not permitted on our cloud hosting servers. We reserve the right to enact defensive movements to maintain the stability of our systems for all clients.
If you believe your website may be susceptible to high or otherwise abnormal usage you must contact us to discuss the suitability and options of your hosting environment.
Cancellation, refunds, termination and disputes
Cancellation notices for all services must be given at a minimum of 48 hours in advance of the next billing date, with the exception of VPS servers for which we require a cancellation notice a minimum 30 days before the next billing date. For cloud hosting, an account credit will be granted for each whole unused month. No cash refunds will be granted unless a payment has been taken in error. Refunds for prepaid VPS will only be granted where there is a genuine irreconcilable problem with the service and at management's discretion.
A breach of any of our terms and conditions will result in immediate termination with no refund.
Setup, design and support fees are non-refundable. Any disputes should be expressed in writing via a valid written contact method as listed on our contact page.
Under no circumstances will we tolerate threatening or abusive behavior towards our staff. Should this occur, we reserve the right to terminate the hosting agreement with immediate effect.
Should the client, during the course of a telephone conversation or email, make reference to “legal action” or say anything we might reasonably understand to imply or infer that the client may intend to pursue a legal claim against us, we reserve the right to refuse telephone support going forward. Any further correspondence must then be sent by email.
Should we feel that your needs would be better served by another provider, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to terminate the hosting agreement. Where it is reasonable to do so, we will provide 30 days notice of termination and provide a backup of all website content and email.
Rights on Termination
Termination of this agreement does not affect your pre-existing liability, if any, or affect our right to recover damages or pursue any other remedy in respect of any breach of this agreement by you.
In the event of us terminating this agreement due to breach of these conditions by you, we shall be entitled to the balance of all payments which would but for such termination have accrued up to the earliest date on which this agreement could have been terminated by you.
Setup, support and design fees are non-refundable. Any disputes should be expressed in writing via a valid written contact method.
A change of details
We have the right to change any username or password allocated to you for the purpose of essential network and website maintenance, enhancement modernisation or other work deemed necessary to the operation of your website and the Internet.
Similarly, we have the right to alter the hosting environment your site runs in to one with like-for-like features, as long as reasonable notice is given and there is no disruption to service. The only reason we would do this is if it represented an ‘upgraded’ environment for you, the end user.
Domain registration, renewal, transfer and restoration
Domain name registration period is two years.
Hosting package renewals do not include a further free domain renewal, transfer or registration.
We will always register, transfer and renew domain names in our client's name - never in our own. It is the client's responsibility to inform us of any changes to their domain name ownership and contact details so that we can update the WHOIS details.
Click IT Internet Ltd excludes liability for any loss of profit caused to the customer by the expiration of their domain name as a result of a technical fault or any other fault caused by the hosting company or any third party, or where the customer failed to respond to the renewal invoice for any reason.
All domain registrations are bound by our Hosting Provider's Registrant Agreement...
