Terms and Conditions

These are the standard terms and conditions which apply to all websites hosted with Hostcentral. For the most part they should not have any effect on the way you use our services, the conditions outlined in this document are not intended to be more restrictive than most other commercial hosting services available in the Australian Market.

These conditions are provided to protect Hostcentral, you and other clients using our services from having your level of service being degraded by the actions of others. If you have any problems with any of the conditions or terms please feel free to contact us as we are willing to discuss and resolve any problems you may have.

This agreement governs the terms of use by the Client of all Services provided by Hostcentral.

By accepting these terms and conditions the client recognises that they are also accepting to act within the bounds of the Acceptable Usage Policy.

The Client agrees to use Services according to the following terms and conditions:

1. Agreement

The client agrees to use the services according to the account selected or as specifically stated on their invoice. In the case of developers or where a single client holds multiple accounts these terms and conditions will be taken as binding to all existing and subsequent accounts once the client has provided acceptance of these terms and conditions.

2. Billing.

All invoices for Hostcentral services are to be settled within seven (7) days. This applies to all accounts, unless prior arrangement is made in writing with the management. If a client is paying on an annual basis, they must be aware that excess usage charges will be billed in arrears and must be paid by the client monthly.

3. Variation of Agreement.

Hostcentral may from time to time vary the terms, charges and conditions outlined in this agreement. The version of this agreement that is published at www.hostcentral.net.au should always be taken as the binding and most recent version of these terms and conditions.

4. Term of Agreement.

Subject to clause (5), this agreement will continue for the durations of a client's use of our services.

5. Termination of agreement.

Unless otherwise stated this agreement may be terminated at any time by the client on the giving of 30 days notice. Unless otherwise stated this agreement may be terminated by Hostcentral on the giving of 30 days notice. If this agreement is terminated by the client, the client forfeits any and all prepaid monies to Hostcentral. If this agreement is terminated by Hostcentral for any other reason than violation of this agreement or the Acceptable Usage Policy, the client is entitled to a pro-rated refund.

6. Compliance with Law.

In using the services provided, the client must abide by all applicable Local, State (New South Wales), Federal and International laws, treaties and regulations. Any violation of this provision can result in termination immediately or with 30 days notice depending on the severity of the violation at the absolute discretion of Hostcentral.

7. Limitation of Liability.

Hostcentral does not warrant to the client that the client will receive continual and uninterrupted services during the Term of this agreement. In no event shall Hostcentral be liable to the Client for damages resulting from or in relation to any failure or delay of Hostcentral to provide services under this Agreement if such delays or failures are due to circumstances beyond our control. Such a failure or delay shall not constitute a default under this agreement.

Hostcentral, its agents or employees will not be liable in any way for any form of loss or damage of any nature whatsoever suffered, whether arising directly or indirectly, by the Client or any person related to or dealing with the client out of, in connection with or reasonably incidental to the provision of the services by Hostcentral to the Client.

8. Disclaimer of Warranties.

While Hostcentral uses all reasonable care in providing the Service, Hostcentral shall not have any liability whatsoever in respect of any loss or damage resulting from the provision of the Service, errors or omission in information provided in relation to the service. Hostcentral's liability in the event of failure to provide adequate service shall not extend beyond the cost of providing a comparable service.

9. Indemnity.

Client agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Hostcentral harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities and expenses (including solicitors' fees) related to or arising out of the Services provided by Hostcentral to Client under this Agreement, including without limitation claims made by third parties (including customers of Client) related to any false advertising claims, liability claims for products or services sold by Client, claims for patent, copyright or trademark infringement, claims due to disruption or malfunction of services provided here under, or for any content published by Client using the Services, but excluding those directly caused by the negligence of Hostcentral.

10. Refusal of Service.

Hostcentral retains the right to refuse services to the Client.

Refusal of service may result if:

(a) the client fails to pay accounts within 14 days of the due date,
(b) If the agreement is terminated; or
(c) if the client uses the misuses the services or fails to comply with the customers obligations under the agreement.

11. Shared servers.

The Client understands the shared hosting services are provided on a shared server and acknowledges that its web-site cannot overwhelm the server through unnecessarily excessive use of CPU (such that other users/machine performance are/is adversely affected).

If a client is deemed to be placing excessive usage on the server it will be deemed by Hostcentral that shared services are no longer appropriate and will need to relocate their account to a dedicated service. In such a case, if required, Hostcentral will refund any unused portion or pre-paid services.

12. Severability.

Should any part of this Agreement be or become invalid, that part shall be severed from this Agreement and such invalidity shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Agreement.

13. Passwords.

The Client must ensure their password is only given to people whom they give authority to access their account. Hostcentral takes no responsibility to damage or loss resulting from unauthorised access to an account where access is gained with a valid username and password. Hostcentral will never request to be notified of the Client's password.

14. Unsolicited Email.

The Client must not send unsolicited bulk email via Hostcentrals mail servers. The Clients site must not be referenced or linked to in unsolicited email.

15. Permission to access data.

The client is given the authority to access data contained in their account only. With the exception of having read-only access log files, users do not have the authority to access, read or write data to any other location on the Hostcentral servers.

16. Unpaid Accounts.

Accounts may be suspended if they are not paid within seven (7) days of due date and prior arrangements are not made. All data contained in a suspended account will remain on the system, BUT account holders will not be able to access it, the website will display a notice stating that the account is in arrears. Accounts will be removed from the system and all associated data deleted if the account is not paid within 3 months of due date. Whilst accounts are in arrears, clients will not have access to data stored on Hostcentral servers. Hostcentral reserves the right to delete data on cancelled accounts at any time.

17. Un-authorised access.

Attempt to use Hostcentral's servers by the Client to attack other networks/computers will result in cancellation of the account at the discretion of Hostcentral.

18. Entire Agreement.

The Client acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement is the entire Agreement between the parties and excludes all oral or implied representations and terms unless such terms are agreed between the parties in writing.
